Klectrlelty has become o popular for
household conveniences that tlw modem
i housewife Is no longer content to do worU
I that she can avoid by getting an eleclrlcO
; appliance that will do more work for
1 much less money,. The electric toaster
and the electric carpet swee'ier have
' their purpose and do much excellent work.
but no single Invention has done away
with more real drudgery than have the
eb'ctrlr washer and wringer.
No housewife likes to wash by the old
laborious method. This Is a task that
makes every woman shudder and nfhrn
(washday rolls around tho woman that has
to go to the tub and board Is a sorrowful
Ifjgure. Many families cannot afford the
mils or a washwoman or a launnry ana
must depend on their own labor. Th
electric washer does away with all the
bard portion and solves the wa-sh prob
lem for these homes. It even makes the
work better for the laundress who comes
to these, homes to wash as her work Is
easier and Is quicker done and she does
not have to ask the price that longer
hours would demand when washing 1
dono tho old way.
One of tho washers that has attracted
the most nttentlon nnd won success In
this city Is tho "1900" mnchlne. It Is sold
,by the 1900 Washer company, K. B. "Wil
liams, manager, at 308 Koutli Kightcenth
street The parent firm is conceded to be
ono of tho largest In the world. This
growth has been brought about by the
fact that they make a specialty of
I washers. Their "factory-to-consumer"
plan has been a winner. Tho 1900 washer
probably has more modern patents than
any other machine, ns the makers are

Electric Bill High
in Winter Because '
Nights Are Longer
In June the hours during which most
families use electric light (between dusk
and bedtime. 10 o'clock) number Just
sixty. In December the hours for using
light increase to three tlmee this number
1HS. Added to the Increased number of
hours of actual darkness fs Just the nat
ural way In which people stay In tho
j house and use more light In the winter
than In the summer.
Come to think of It. Is It any wonder
that there Is some difference between tho
Jjunc and December light bill?
