Electricity Vital Factor In Life Electricity is a factor in life that is taken too much for granted. Its uses have become so vital and so wide spread that most of us regard It , in much the same manner as we do our daily meals. It is there to be used and we use it. We couldn't get along without it and what's the use of both ering about it. Unfortunately, the average man and woman gives little thought to the tremendous service of brains and toil back of this thing we call electricity. You can't reach into the air and itluck out a chunk of electricity and make it do whatever you want done. You can't go up into the polar re gions or into the Jungles of Africa and turn on a switch and get light. True, there may be lots of electricity there but it is not harnessed; it is not serv iceable. To get it to "work" for us, some one has to get it hooked up, so that all we have to do is td press a button or turn on a switch. All this times time and money and In genuity. MoBt of us can easily look back to tho time when we "got our home lee sons" by oil lamps. Lots of us recall the days, when we went to business on horse drawn cars. We have things to day which we only dreamed of then, Kiectnicty nas worKea an tnese won ders. But electricity is not as free as the air. It has to be manufactured just like anything else that we need Yet nothing is manufactured that Is not needed for more purposes than is electricity Figures show that the increase in the use of electricity tor uiuminauon, ior instance, is something quite astonish ing. Take the year 1915. The best records indicate that 3,434,900 homes In the United States were using elec tncity for lighting. Just five years later this number had been increased to 6,517,600, almost double in the space of five years. With electricity such a factor In the world's progress, one would imagine that electricity would become & more ceneral topic of study In the schools Mere boys and girls today know the meaning of carburetor, ignition sys tem and spark plug, as applied to au tos, than understand the fmaning of the terms used in electricity. It would be valuable to our boys and girls who must utilize more and more the serv ice of electricity to have an early and understandable knowledge of this all powerful servant of man. GIFT SUGGESTION LIST FQR CHRISTMAS SHOPPERS IN DAYS GONE BY A temperance lecturer displayed to his audience two geraniums. The first had been watered in the usual way the other had been dosed with alcohol and Its foliage was shriveled and sparse, its stem twisted and its vital ity decayed. "Now. ladies and gentlemen," cried the lecturer, "what can you say to demonstration like that?" "It's all right, and if I were a geran ium," said a shabby man at the back of the hall, "I'd stick to water; but, you see, I'm not a geranium."

To this group, constituting the ex ecutive committee of the Communi.st International and having its head quarters in Moscow, extraordinary powers have been delegated by the last congress. The aims which these men are to pursue and the methods which they are to employ have been set forth with a remarkable degree of clarity in the proceedings and the resolutions of the congress. These men, officially fifteen in num ber, have been designated as the gen eral staff of the world revolution Their committee Is to be the -co ordinating and directing center of the Communist activities the world over In every country of the earth, every ndividual and group working openly or secretly for the cause or commun ism must take orders from this execu tive committee, obey those orders im plicitly and unqualifiedly, and look to the committee us the master and the last court of appeal. Taken individually or even as a group, these men do not represent out standing figures. Were' they to be con-, sidered on the basis of their individual merit .they would deserve very little attention. None of them is a person of unusual ability. None of them is even prominent In the affairs of his -own country, with the exception of the five Russian representatives, whose claim to prominence in their country rests upon the foundation of tragic historic accident namely, certain conditions growing out of the war ,a foundation similar to that which constitutes the basis of the power of the whole com mittee and the international back of It. And yet the Communist Internation al and its executive committee repre sent today a force to be reckoned with, a power before which some of the statesmen of western Europe stand in confusion and almost in awe, while many of the enlightened leaders of Socialist and radical thoucht humble themselves before t.

I usually get him to believe that I am right, and let it go at that." Judge. Washing Machine Now Has Water- Heating Device A new electric washer consists of a tub, a rotating cylinder, a swinging wringer and a gas or -oil burner1 by which the water can be heated and kept at working temperature right in the tub. When one thinks how water had to be heated in a wash boiler on a stove when doing laundry work by old meth ods, the ability to heat the water in the tub and keep it from getting luke warm is a big improvement. If the clothes are soaped and soaked before hand, then washed electrically in a hot soap solution, they are far cleaner and whiter than when done by hand. Clothes can be wrung from the hot wash water into the rinsing water, the wringer swung out at a right angle from the tub and the clothes wrung into blueing, the wringer turned through another right angle and the clothes wrung again into the basket. The wringer also has a safety lever on the top by which the rolls can .be instantly released, if necessary. o A BAD TIMEKEEPER The fussy; old fellow was making a journey on a Drancn line, at ine nest not particular as to punctuality. The train had slowed down again after stopping several times. The old gen tleman's patience became exhausted, and taking out his watch, he said to a fellow passenger: "How much is this train overdue?" "Well, sir," was the reply, "a watch is no good; you want a calendar." London Telegraph. HOEPPNER WILL HELP YOU TO MAKE THIS AN PORTABLE ELECTRIC HEATER.S AS COAL SAVERS Economically the electric heater now has much more to commend it than it did in the days when coal could be ob tained for $6 or $7 a ton. In those days it was considered that the cost of heat ing a home electrically would be many times as much with electricity as with coal, but now that the price of coal is two and one-half to three times what it was, the discrepancy in cost is much lesf marked.
