Jhe A Tribune Institute At ijour E \ Service Ptite* \re Swefaa? to Chance Without \otice Western Electric Fans Marketed by the Western Electric Company, 105 Weat 40th St., New York City LOOK well at the row of fans illustrated on this page. They are all perfectly good fans, doing their work efficient? ly, running smoothly and noiselessly, good in ?truction and reasonable in price. It is literally a case of paying your money ?rid taking your choice. Some of them are tiny de-sk or table fans only six inches in diameter; others are eight, nine, ten and twelve inches. The amount of breeze thrown depends ? good deal upon I ?M fan, but even the six-ir.ah fellows can make it pretty tolerably cc?ol in their immediate vicinity. The larger ones undertake cheerfully the contract of low? ering tha temperature of a whole room. The Western Electric 6-Inch Fan This Is a small, low-pric?d fan, finished in frost bronze. It has four blades and weigh? only 4*? pounds. It can be connected to a lamp socket by six feet of flexible cord, and op? erates on either alternating or direct current of proper voltage. The cot?t of operation at 10 cents per kilowatt hour is about one-quarter of s cent per hour. Price, $6.95. The Western Electric 9-Inch Fan A wall and desk type, m'.de in non-oscillat? ing and oscillating styles. It weighs six pounds, is finished in a smcxrth dull black and has four polished brass bladt?. The base l*s rubber-cov? ered, to prevent marring any polished surface upon which it may rest, and contain3 a sliding switch, which gives high, medium and low speeds. The fan can be tilted forward or backward, or, by removing and replacing a winged screw bolt, it can be turned at right angles. The arc of oscillation may be either 30, 60 or i>0 de? grees. It is equipped with nine feet of flexible connection cord, with lamp recket attachment.

The impulse to rub the eye ?should be re I* only increases the irritation. Above ill things, a soiled handkerchief or cloth or tSrty fit.gors should not be used to try to re BJov.-- the obstruction. Sometimes a black Spack can be seen and an over-enthusiastic friend will offer to remove it by means of a needle, pin, or even s knife blade. Never allow anything like this, in the hands of an irexpericne.ed person, to come near the eye? ball, ai an involuntary movement might csuse severe injury. Nature does her best to try to help out at such a time 1 y cau?ing the tears to flow, and the taars often wash the partida to the corner of the eye, where it cut; be wiped away.

Therefore ererj housekeeper should feel it her duty, as well as her pleasure*, to serve them bountifully upon the family table. Two fish dinners are given for the week: the planked mackerel served on TaeM-Say and the broiled bluefi??b on Saturday. The former will doubtless give siitfii ient lefl-over fish for the fish mousse for Wednesday's luncheon and the latter a fish salud for the Sunday night supper.

Just spread out the steak on a board and roll 'his miniature mower back and forth over it two or three times.

Another advantage is that I tough beefsteak can be made edible without taking the en? tire neighborhood into your confidence at t?> what you are planning for dinner.

Holt No. 5 Cup-Beater Made by Holt-Lyon Company, Tarry town, N. Y. This egg-beater differs from othera of the hover type in having the beater part egg shaped instead of circular. Recause of this it not only fits into a cup or glas?* quite as easily as other small cup-beaters, but also beats one egg in a bowl quite as well as in a cup. Its ability is by no means confined to one egg, for it can take care of four or five quite as easily. Its strong hold upon the affection?, ?f tho housewife lies in the fact that it can do both. This means one more utensil that will take the place of two. In the test given in the Tribune Institute laboratory this beater whipped one egg white into a stiff standing froth in 16 seconds, and brought four whites to the same pitch of cxcel lence in less than 60 seconds. Price, 20 cents. (Other articles which have been teated and endorsed by The Institute are ahown in The Tribune Graphic. ) Kill F?tes by Wholesalt HAND-SWATTIN'G of flies is an occupa? tion for which only the leisure class has time. Most housewives must have a quicker method. The United States govern? ment, inclining its august ear to the wai' of the overworked swatter, offers two solution? which in death to flies, but harmless to children: A formaldehyde solution of approximately the correct strength may be ma?lc by '?dding three teaspoonfuls of the concentrated for? maldehyde solution, commercially known as formalin, to a pint of water. The proper solution of sodium salicylate may be obtained by dissolving three teaspoonfuls of the pure chemical fa powder) to a pint of water. The government aleo offers a mother's helper sort of suggestion as to how to make a fly fountain of the solution. An ordinary thin-walled drinking glass is tilled, or partly filled, with the solution. A r or smali plate, in which is placed a piece of white blotting paper cut the size of the dish, is put bottom up over the glass. The whole is then quickly inverted, a match placed Under the glass, and the container ?s ready for use. .\s the aolotion dries out of the saucer, the liquid seal at the edge of the glass is broken end more liquid flows into the lower rc<? ptacle. Of course an obvious advantage is that no one will carelessly drink the contents of the ?lass if the glas*? is upiide down. Unlett, per ? hance, in a topsy-turvy house. A much more poetic method is to drive away the flies with pleasant odors; that is, odors i K liant to humans and very distasteful to flies. Lavender is the flies' favorite dislike. Take live cents' worth of oil of lavender, mix it with the came amount of water, put it in a common frlass atomizer and spray it around the dining room, even on the table linen. Tramp flies, after BOefe an experience, will ? halk outside the windows warning to friends, "Beware thi? perfumed room, Ely while the living's good." What an Attractive Sign Will Do IN THE recent campaign to prevent the sale of artificially colored and flavored stuff under the name of Orangeade, one little stand on the East Hide presented a particularly flagrant case. The investigator told the proprietor posi? tively that he must either refrain from calling the concoction Orangeade, cr stop selling it. In the course of making his checking-up round the following week he was surprised to find Abe's stand flaunting a big sign reading "Orangeade: Artificially Colored and Highly Adulterated." "You see, I'm following rules." grinned the proprietor. "But?hasn't it ruined your buainesa?" "Business was never so good! You see, them words 'colored' and 'highly' sounds good, and they don't know anything about the reat of it. They don't care. It's just s good-looking aign to them!" M. ?S. C.
