In the. old days It whs the custom to
take the cniiwts ami ,rufts out Into the
yard and bent them thoroughly; the
rooms were swept and, after the dwt
had settled, the thlnge were diutcd: With

vacuum cleaner sucks up every partlclo
of dirt and deposits It In n tight recep

The Invention of the vacuum cleaner
came about In this way. A rinn wns

IF YOU LIVE IN PRESENT
USE MODERN METHODS
In largo cities, especially, the condition
of ll(o have changed very materially In
a fow ycRre, becavae the development of
modern public utilities has been so start
line and bo extensive In scope as to lit
erally remake the wuys of living for
everyone who enj6ys tholr advantages.
Following a jiatural law. the energies of
each individual reach out to other thinRs
and expend themselves further or In new
directions directly In proportion to tho
time and energy saved by all theso mod
ern conveniences. It follows again that
only thoso who take full advantage of
alt the conveniences which really affect
thorn materially can expect to keep up
with tho nrdcesslon: and this statement
will be found to be true, whether applied
to the conduct of a business, a manu
facturing Industry or the personal hab
its and activities of a housekeeper or a
society woman. The importance of keep
ing Informed with regard to the real ben
efits to be obtained from modern utilities
In seen to bo vital In tho light of these
thnnrhts. Scientific management Is call
ing for fresh air, good light and othor
nhvslcal comforts for workers In any and
every line of Industry. Cool and efficient
electric light and the Invaluable olcctrlo
fan at once suggest themselves as unl-
vr.nii- desired conveniences. As for
those who are doing the work In tho
homes of the land tho electric washer
and wringer, the electric sowing machine
motor and the cloctrlo flat iron are the
'most Important conveniences whjph may
be used with the elcetrlo light service.
Thoso who are attempting to face the
day'- work deliberately and neglect to
face avail themselves of thesa advantages

Easy Now to Wire
Old Buildings for
Best Electric Light
Onco it was thought quite Impossible
to wlro an old bntldliiK for electric light.
Too pie owning flno old homes did not
want thoni torn up and disfigured by n
gang of electricians In nn effort to Install
I'lootrlo light. For this reason they used
oil and un for many years, although
they realised that rlectrlclty was better
Unfortunately electricity has been with
us but n few years, nt most, and by far
tho greater number of homes In thl
country were erected before the advent
of electric light. It Is quite Hn easy mat
ter to Install electricity In a new building
In course df construction. In this case
the wiring Is all done before tho plaster,
floors and tho moulding uro put In place.
When an attempt was made to put In e.
network of concealed wiring In an old
house the result was anything but pleas
ing. Hut now all this Is changed and It Is
possible to wire tho largest homes with
out brenktng the plaster, and still have
tho wiring completely concealod. It eon

can bo laid across the floor by raising a
slngln board and can bo run In the other
direction at right angles to this simply
by removing and afterwards replacing
a part of the baseboard, the flooring nfod
bo disturbed very little.
