The at (trivial lighting season Is at '
hand. We have used as little light as1
possible dining the summer time and been '
out of doors as much as possible. Much j
dust has undoubtedly accumulated on the
globus and reflectors, which materially (
reduces their llelit.ulvliifr rriel,.iw. A I
little time spent In washing the lamps
and rcflcctois will work wonders In
brightening up the home. The same Is

Tho modern housewife is not "modern"
until she has taken advantage ot the op
portunities offered by the electrical conven
iences which have been invented for use in
the household. The electrical toaster, the
electrical iron, disc stove, coffee percolator,
vacuum cleaner, washer, and many more
of these devices have made the life of the
modern wife very easy. There Is no dirt, no
drudgery, attached to keeping house when
the wife has at her command all of these
helps. Sho can get more work done cook
better meals, keep the home cleaner, and
