WELL WOlRTH THE EXPENRE. Is it really so much more expensive than the maid and the cook and the man who tends the furnaco' Than the ice, the coal, the gas, the labor in volved in supplying them? Don't you save enough in worry, and work to compensate for the current used? Of course, the thing that the wom an who uses electricity must learn is to plan her work and her meals so that the minimum of electricity is used. Don't try to cook one thing at a time: cook several. Even on a grill three things may be cooked at once. This saves current. When the house gets too hot in winter, don't throw open all the windows, shut off the heat. Take care to turn out lights I in unused rooms. D3on't go out of a room and leave the electric fan going. Plan the ironing so that it may all he done with one beating of the iron. Do not repeatedly let it cool and have to reheat it. This wastes electricity. Learn to conserve it and you'll find it economical instead of extravagant. The house that is to be run elec trically should have plenty of outlets for current. Don't try to do with one socket in a room and that hanging from the center of the ceiling. Put them about in inconspicuous places at convenient heights. All this should be planned when electricity is in stalled. Consider just where your furniture is to be placed and what each room is to be used for. Then wire your house accordipgly. o.t e0 easure Day the Home voman to wear herself out nd there is no excuse for en-for the APEX makes no scrubbing-the APEX ranged for any purchase, 1 at the store at any time nonstration. Sakes Co. h Water Hester Co., !orthwest ervice T ELECTRICITY HELPS WORK OF KITCHEN Household Engineer Shows How Modern Appliances Can Lighten Domestic Tasks. "Every so often *am@ woman tells me her maid or cook or other help in her home refuses to use some elec trio labor-saving device which she has had installed in her home," said a Cleveland electrical household on gineer recently. "It has been more or less of a mys tery to me why anyone should take this attitude. Understand me," he went en to explain, "this remonstrat Ing help is not alway some foreign girl who, of course, dannot consist ently be blamed for refusing to have anything to do with a force which may strike her as smacking of the -powers of darkness--even though it is the same that gives the only civil ised light. ANSWU R P0 PROBLEM. "But what possible reason could an intelligent American girl have for not want'hg to use electrical helps to lighten her tasks?" was asked. But the household engineer was called to attend to the wishes of a patron-a woman who had been trying to aid her domestics by installing electrie appli ances in her home for them to le "I suppose you will think my story hardly plausible," she began. "but I have the answer for the problem which you mentioned when vou ha4 my olectric range put in. You said you were mystified by the attitude of servants who refuse to use electrical household devices. My maid this morning ' put me next,' to use her own phrase. "Look here. missus. do you know what a strike breaker is?' is the ques tion she fired at me this morning when I asked her to use some electric device instead 'of doing the task by hand. "'Certainly.' I replied, 'but I do not understand why you ask.' "'Because,' the girl retorted, as her face grew red. 'that's exadtly what these here 'lectric contraptions are strike breakers! They are stealing work from me and other working g4ris-that's why I for one refuse to have anything to do with them!' "Naturally I found it hard to reason with the deluded creature, but I tried to point out to her that these electric appliances help her to do her work better and quicker and incidentally have more time "- 'to do more work and take it from somebody else. Missus Du Roi,' she cut in. 'It wouldn't surprise me one bit to wake up some fine morn ing and find these here 'lectric she bangs doing all your work without To Y< Scienc< way tolei creating save tim( the gre scieance coming those consume time, Electric light! electric heaters irons, electric c machines, ele< many other ele signed for the labor-saving de vices, as they time required f Washington' well stocked vi ern electrical aj sales fol edge of o Make even needing an engineer to lools after 'em.' 0 Vos OWN wUosmuase. "Irritated somewhat by this Impru dent Speech. I told her I for one pray ed her dream would come .true, but that since they still require the 'en gineer' s spoke of, I would be my own engineer and dispense entirely with such arrogant. unwilling and re belious help." "There is no reason, Mrs. DuRol. why you should not do your own household engineering," replied the home economist. "Thousands of other women who never did it before are doing all the work of their household and are feeling the better of It. both physically and financially. That the day of the household servant is num bered can hardly be questioned. Elec tricity Is slowly, gradually ousting the domestic autocrat from the vast majority of American homes. "Only yesterday a woman was tell Ipg me that she was doing her own housework for the first time in her life. She has given up haunting em ployment agencies. she finds it easier, she said, to do the whole Job alone than to run down new help every third week. The electric cleaner takes the backache out of her sweeping. Her husband does the washing--that is. he put* the clothe& in the tub and the machine does the work during the dinner hour Mon day. Her new electric range, she rambled on, is more reliable than any maid--and the cooking is as often as not done to a turn while she is play ing )ridge at some friend's house." ONLY OUTLINES STORY. Hut. of course, the household engi neer could only outline the story of electricity as it has come to take its place in the home. And no one should forget that electric energy as it Is applied to the home is still in Its in fancy. Electric washers, wringers and ironers are taking the place of the laundress who used to coine in the morning and stay all day and they are saving in wear and tear on clothes. Vacuum cleaners are taking the place of the old-fashioned dust rais ing broom. They are saving the hard labor of sweeping, dusting and clean ing and are taking the place of the housemaid. And now the electric dishwasher and the automatic electric range are taking the places of the kitchen girl and the cook. The automatic electric range is so constructed that it can be "set" by means of a simple alarm clock to turn the heat on at a given time. The desired temperature is also "set" and is automatically turned off when the oven reaches the required tempera ture. Food is then cooked by means of the same principle which is used in the fireless cooker. BOOK OF INSTRUCTION. A book of instructions to go with the range has been prepared. This book explains the period of time and the heat required to cook certain ari eles of food. If. for example, a roast of a certain size required two houis Id Years )ur Life a has shown igthen your lif new devices ? and energy. test help t has had in o abors which wear dow~ has been Electricity. s, electric fans, electric 5 ,electric toasters, electri :urling irons, electric wa :tric vacuum sweepers 'ctrical devices have be< comfort of their users. vices are also time-savi1 reduce to the minimui or the work at hand. s leading Electrical stor rith the latest and most >pliances, and in additioi rces have a complete k the articles which the These Leading I Vili Serve You-a, In All Matte Home Life' Easy I t 8 certain temperature it is eIo shaving miror.
