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.
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.
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

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
