More than any other influence, it has emanci? pated woman from unpleasant tasks, thus preserv? ing her much needed strength, time, and energy for other duties which make the home a haven of happi? ness for her husband and her children. The modern housekeeper is independent because she can always count on hei "Little electrical servants," who keep her house spotlessly clean ; who serve her meals pip? ing hot ; who wash her dishes ; do her laundry work, and make easy scores of other household duties. Artistic fixtures have caused a reformation in the lighting of the home, the theater, the office, and in all buildings. The harmonious combination and restful effects produced by the soft and indirect lights of to-day are the result of a new art. There are neither objectionable glares nor are there dark corners; a mellow glow is cast evenly everywhere. Artistic stage lighting and scenic effects of rare beauty and remarkable colors are produced by the aid of the electrician who can express through his art the atmosphere and mood which the playwright wishes to produce on the stage. In the field of culture and education electricity has played a most important role. Thru the cinema the countries, customs and habits of all the world are made known to every other part. The stories of great classics become familiar to persons who perhaps would never read them. Important truths are impressed on school children by this pic? torial art of to-day. The radio, the wireless and the telephone bring all the world into close communication. They triumph over time and distance. With them no na? tion of the earth lives in isolation since the world events are by them quickly spread to its four corners. They are the invisible arteries of the world through which courses the news. They bring news and con? certs into the homes of many, while the phonograph brings the finest artists into the humblest home. Medical science has been advanced by leaps and bounds with the aid of electricity, which has made possible such contributions to this science as the X-ray and countless other devices used in the field of electro-therapeutics. The highly developed systems of ventilation which have come with electricity have added to the welfare and safety of many thou?sands of people who work within factories, offices and mines. Electricity has extended itself into the entire system of modern living. We cannot picture in any way existent comfort, culture and happiness without the employment of its power, the rtthge of which is so wide as to include all forms of industrial, com? mercial and domestic uses.
