ALIiUQUEKQUE EVENING CITIZEN
PAGE FOUR. SATURDAY, MARCH 1,1906. ' THE ALBUQUERQUE CITIZEN Fubllsued Dailj and Weekly By The Citizen Publishing Company W. 8. STRICKLER President W. T. McCREIGHT Bus!dpbs Mannser ira Electric Moiqc Engineers say this -will tie an "Electric War." Klec Irlclty is soon to operate nil the railroads in and nruniid New York City. It is scndiiiR Hip trolley far nnd the telephone to the remotest rural districts. The Incan dcRecnt nnd other new styles of eleetrlo litht is every where supplanting the :d-f:is!iloncd as or oil hi reel lamp. And now the mystic current has hci;un to revo lutionize conditions of living in homes. The first "electric home" has just been completed in one of the cities of upper New York state. This home is equipped with almost every modern elect rioal device, nnd it la a veritable wonderland of marvels. The owner, H. W. Hillman, believes the time is not far distant when homes all over the world will be fully equipped with electricity for lighting, heating nnd power, as commonly as oil and gas are now used. The greater cleanliness, healthfulness, safety and convenience of electricity, as compared to gas, will, he contends, result in the univer sal use of electricity. This remarkable dwelling has electric lights In every room, in every closet, in every dark corner. Instead ot the conventional bell burglar alarm. Mr. Hillman has nn electric switch next to his bod by pushing which he can instantly turn on every light in the house. This would terrify any thief more than a doen revolvers. In the sewing room, a machine run by an electric motor saves endless trouble. On a table by the machine 1s an electric flat iron, ready for use at any time. In this room there is also a telephone, and nn electric radiator for auxiliary heating. The dining room has nn electric chaffing dish, a corn popper, a coffee percolator, aud a luminous radia tor. In the bed rooms there are electric hetaing pads, instead, of the old-fashioned hot water bottles, which are always liable to burst and produce disaster. Here, loo, are electric curling Irons and flat Irons. The bath room Is an astonishing place. An electric imiaerslon coll heats the water, when the house furnace is shut down in summer. There Is a little boiler to sup ply hot water quickly for shaving. Here, too, is an elec tric radiator a device which costs but $12, but which Mr. Hillman pronounces a great comfort when something Is needed to take off the chilliness of the air. In this room there Is also a massage motor which can be at tached to an Incandescent lamp socket and be operated by any one. One of the great features of this "Electric Home" is the kitchen, where every particle of food cooked gets its heat from electricity. There is no kitchen stove, and all the devices for cooking rest on an ordinary wooden table. The outfit includes an oven, cereal cooker, frying pan, vegetable broiler, gridiron and meat broiler. The oven has a regulating switch for securing high, low and medium grades of heat, by a turn of the handle. In size it is about the same inside dimensions as the old style kitchen stove, or later designs of gas ovens; A novel feature of this oven Is two glass windows In the door, through which meat or bread may be seen cooking, with out opening the oven. This nrrangement is secured by placing an Incandescent lamp in the back of the oven. The electric gridiron is !t inches by 12 inches in eize. It requires but a couple of minutes to get it. hot, after which the most delightful brown c?i:es may be cooked in a most convenient manner. The meat broiler is equally pleasing to handle, being reguiated by the switch for two or three heats, as may be desired. The cereal cooker Is a four combination device. The first operation in the morning is to use it for heating water for coffee; combination two is to use it as a cereal cooker; combination three il to use it for boiling eggs; combination four permits of steaming potatoes, using the perforated potato steamer. This device may be used consecutively for all four combinations. As to the cost of using this form of heat, Mr. Hill man thus describes his experience: "Until a few years ago the electric lighting business was confined to the operation of electrical machinery at night. There was a most limited use for it (luring the day. During the past few years, however, the introduc tion of electric motors for all kinds of power has created a demand for operation twenty-four hours per day. The outfit is used a great deal during the day time. "The lighting company is glad to have'me use elec tricity so extensively, especially considering when It is used, and for this purpose makes rue a special price. During the past two years I have pnbl them about $110 per year for electricity for lighting and heating, as com pared, with the average electric lighting bills of about $30 to $35 per year. "My bills for the electric heating circuit have been between $6 and $7 per month. Tor gas and coal together my bills formerly amounted to $ij per month. No effort whatever has been made to economize during any month lor two j-eurs.'' The laundry in this marvelous home is also fully equipped. wlh electricity, TlKTV s no soot and no ashes, no unbearable heat, in summer. "For ten years," says Mr. Hillman, "the coal range bad done duty for our washing and ironing. Then we used a gas range for six years, though we used a coal stove for wash days. The common objection existed as to the heat from the stove during the hot days, and the taking of many steps from the stove to the ironing hoard, it being natural to get as far away from the stove as possible, to avoid the fumes and heat. It cost from 9 tq 15 cents for the coal consumed. "The electric iron has now been used by us for twenty-six months, and represents a most popular article. It costs about $3.75 to purchase, the ironing is finished more quickly and handled more comfortably, on a hot -day; it saves steps, and the operating cost, for the same work is about 12 cents. "In our experience with electrical devices, the coal range continued to be necessary until superseded by a tepeclal electric wash loller. This was 12 cents per week, or 48 cents per month more expensive than the coal rangp. The latest and l est arrangement, however, is tin washing machine, operated bv an electric motor, which we are about to install." The Hillman house will not long be the only one ot its kind. Others are already being built and additional electrical contrivances are being Invented almost every day. Among the latest of these time, labor, and dirt saving devices are the electrical refrigerating machine and the furnace regulator. The refrigerator attachment is an automatic afiair. which w ill keep down the temperature in I be ire box to any degree, fur the motor starts to work as soon as l he thermometer in the refrigerator gets aliove a certain point. The furnace regulator is also devised lo keep the temperature at a fixed point, by opening and closing dampers us the rooms get too cold or too hot. A ther mometer and again the electric current are the imple ments by which this feat of domestic wizardry is performed. RED CROSS FOUNDER. Geneva, March 3. -iHenrl Dunant, the founder of the fled Cross Societies, is dying at his home, near Lake Con stance. Dunant spent his entire fortune on the lied Cross. The Red Cross So cieties are the result. of nn agitation begun by M. Jean Henri Dunant, after he ha 1 clianced to witness the battle of Solfer- Ino, on June 24, 1 S ."!. The great suffering of the wounded sol diers and the inabil ity of the surgeons to care for the thou sands who lay help less on the field, greatly affected this philanthropist, and he published u book which vividly described the horrors of war and suggested the formation of societies to train nurses to assist upon the battlefield and In military hospltnls. An agitation was Immediately begun, nnd at the In ternational conference in Oeneva in August, UiM, the Oeneva convention was Indorsed and fourteen nations formed Red Cross Societies. The number has now leen increased lo forty-three. Dunant spent his entire fortune on this work and has since been living on a pension, given him by the empress of Russia; and his share of the Nobel peace prize, which he received In 1901. ROOSEVELT RESERVOIR. In the land of mystery, of losl races and hoary ruins, In the warm and sunny valley of Salt rivet, we find one of the greatest engineering works in the world now well under way. Many miles above the valley. In what was once an almost inaccessible region, peopled only by the murderous Apache and the old-time outlaw, the Salt river and its tributary, Ton to creek, emerge from the canyon and flow across a broad, level flat. Here 2,iM men are at work, erecting the Roosevelt dam, which Is to be one of the highest in the world, exceeded In height by only one other, and that also a structure of the recla mation service. The Roosevelt dam will be of uncotirsed rubble masonry (sandstone and cement, with arch up stream). It will be 80i) feet long on top, 235 feet at river bed, and Its contents will be 300,000 cubls yards. It will rise 284 feet above the lowest foundations, and the height of the water against the dam will be 230 feet. A power canal eighteen miles long, with a drop of 220 feet, is now being utilized to furnish 4,000 horse-power in con structing the works. When the reservoir is completed, the water will flow in the river channel for forty-four miles, and then be diverted, by means of canals, to the irrigated lands. In the construction of the dam, 240, ooo barrels of cement are required. The question of cement was not the least of the problems which troubled the minds of the en gineers. The Isolation of the dam site sixty miles from a railroad and a tendency on the part of cement man ufacturers to put as high a value on their product, as they thought it would bear, offered a problem which nearly stumped the engineers. The first bids were $lt a barrel, making the Item of cement a matter of more than $2,oon. "ito alone. 'I'hen It was that the engineer with the geo logical bump got busy. A hasty reconnoissance of the near-by country disclosed the fact that a ledge of splen did limestone outcropped just above tho dam site, while hills of blue clay were within a short distance. Notwith standing the vigorous protests of cement manufacturers, and their offer of cement at about half the price of Hie former figures, the Secretary of the Interior authorized the building of a cement mill. This mill has been in HiicrnsRftil 'optrnt Ion fejr several months, and is turning out ir0 barrels of first -class cement every day, at a cost which will save tin; settlers of the Salt river valley more than $l,(tn(l,(n0 on the price first offered by the trust. The question of supplies was tin important one, aud to meet the condition a wagon road was constructed, to the cost of which the municipalities of I'hoenlx, Mesa and Tempo contributed $7.',0oo. This road was con structed by the government engineers, and not by con tract, and is one of the most spectacular pieces of en gineering In the west. For more than forty miles it 13 in the canyon of the Salt river, ninny miles having been blasted from the precipitous walls. The day laborers were mostly Apache Indiana, remnants of (ieronimo's band. The road opens up avnew region of beautiful scenery, and when the great dam is completed, the Tonto reservoir and the Roosevelt dam will attract the trans continental visitor. The reservoir created by the dam will be one of the largest artificial lakes in the world. Its capacity will be ten times greater than the Croton reservoir. It will contain more water than Is stored by the Assouan dam. One million Mir hundred thousand acre feet, enough water to cover that many acres a foot deep, will be held In this basin until needed by tho farm ers in he valley below. At the present time, in the low tst part of the reservoir site, Is a thriving city, called Roosevelt, with n population of nearly 2,ooo a city with electric lights, water works, school houses, stores and churches, which will be submerged more than 200 feet when the dam is completed. Ten thousand horse-power will be developed from the dam, and from drops in the canals, all of which will be utilized to pump the under ground water of the valley to lands above the gravity systems. ,..n, . ....il ii . aim Mump MlmsmmmiwmimHMrmmiUAJi.milBBmuwi'" spring -KillsPain Sloans Liniment Prico. -x-x-x-x-z- x-x-x M x x-x M .

It Is understood that the local order of Eagles will in the near future give a smoker, at which time a fistic go between the local middleweight prize fighter, Jack Law son, and the colored aspirant, Pettus, will be pulled off. Arrangements however, have not been completed for the mill, as yet. The Company O Social club, or ganized some weeks ago. decided at last night's meeting to give a dance In the armory, for club members and their lady friends, some time after Lent, probably direcly after Easter. The arrangements have not been fully completed as yet, nor tho exact date decided tijion. Last night, at the closing of the Candelarla school, In that district, a patriotic demonstration and program was rendered by the pupils of the school, who had been especially train ed for the occasion by the teacher, Mrs. Harriett Winston. County Su perintendent St roup and a large num ber of the parents of the pupils, to gether with a number of other visi tors, were present to witness the ex ercises. The boys and girls were at tired in red, white and blue costumes and amidst surrounding of American flags, sang patriotic songs, rendered patriotic recltmluns, und cheered the flag of their country, thus making the present closing exercises of this school one to be remembered a long time by those attending. O Church, Club and Social Editor: On Tuesday evening, last, the Fra ternal brotherhood gave one of their open meetings at their hall in Elks' Opera House. Alter a short, business session, at which nineteen new mem bers were initiated, they opened their doors to their guests and rendered the following program: Short ad dress by Organizer Dr. I.

The New Zealand champions of Rugby fool ball have taught Americans a lesson. They have demonstrated that life and limb may be preserved without loss of any essential feature of the game which has become so great a factor in college athletics. On the contrary, the two games played between the New Zealand and British Columbia teams, played in California, proved conclusively thai Rugby foot ball affords better medium for tne development of strength, agaility and endurance than the American game, in which nineteen men were killed and an infintelv great' r number nermanentlv injured last .year. Whether the Rugi.y game is adopted by American cid'cges as a substitute for the present form of play lr not tin ,e Is imieh ton, I t..r 1 1.. hi u ht Iii tli. remarks of .M.tnager John McDonald of Ihe British Columbia team lie sins 'in KmHisli cilli-L-eu ilw nlilect is not so much to win the game as to develop, properly, the con slim; ion of the placi.
