Wilier, Stewart & Beaton 415-17 South 10th Btreet, DAILY- A quarter of a million Bell telephone calls-are "MApEIN OMAHA" Niagara Falls Soon To Be niuminated By Electric Power It Is confidently expected that within another year the falls of Niagara will be Illuminated with electricity and that the power of Its Illumination will bo tho greatest of any Illuminating project in tho world. Once, for a few weeks in 1907, tho falls were Illuminated, and It was a sight that will never be forgotten by thoeo who gazed with wonder on the mighty waters. Plans now under -consideration provide for an Illumination four times as great as this temporary Illumina tion. The plan which haa In view the per manent Illumination of tho falls of Niagara contemplates two large and powerful battorlca of projectors one to bo known as tho "Gorge" battery and tho other as the "11111" battery. , The Gorge battery will bo composed of twenty thirty-Inch projectors, together with suit able apparatus for transforming and dis tributing tho electric current. This bat tery Is to be placed In a nlcho In, the faco of tho cliff opposite tho foot of Goat island, where its rays of light can play on the face of the American" and Canadian waterfalls as well as upon tho "bridal veil" that" pours over the preci pice between Luna and Goat Island. This battery will also be abe to batho tlve gorgo below tho falls In a flood of light. The niche In which lights will be platted will be ten feet high, twelve feet lon and twetve feet deep. It will be pro tected by a set of roller doors to pro tect the machines and the operators from spray, the lights operating through glass panels when necessary. Tho Hill battery will bo composed of twelve slxty-lnoh projectors located on the elevation west of the Queen Victoria Niagara Falls park and near the trans former house of the Ontario Power com pany. These lights will play upon the upper rnplds and the upper strotches of tho river and at the same time be con verged with tho rays from the Gorge battery, Intensifying the effect upon the falls and gorgo scenery. W. d'A. Ryan, the Uumlnating engineer whose plans for the Illuminating have been practically adopted, declared recently that he had every reason to believe that the project will bo carried through during the com ing, year, and that the falls will be Il luminated by the first of July, noxt year. This expression comes from n eignr store. Roid phat a successful firm has to say: "What effect do wo think a well-lighted store, properly illuminated windows and electric signs have upon tho up-building of a progressive merchant's business? "We can say that there cannot bo too much light used. A woll-liglttod store with properly illuminated windows is a human bee-hive. It commands attontion. "As to eleotrio signs, a live wiro merchant ain't be without one. An electric sign pertaining to his particular line of mcchVandisc will increase his sales and prove to the ipublic that he is up-to-date." Let our Contract Department assist you.

Such perfection In this respect has been attained that, It Is claimed, inch measurement 'Is applicable trom near the absolute rero some 490 degrees fahrcnhclt below tho ordinary zero to a temperature of melting platlnunv more than 3,000 degrees fahrcnhelt above icro. Among tho methods of measuring tem perature by electrical means may be mentioned that which depends on the In crease of electric resistance of a puro metal with Increase of temperature. Another method depends, on the produc tion of an electro-motive force In a circuit of two metals when one junction Is .kept at a constant temperature and the other is heated to the tempcrauro which It Is desired to measure. Muny electric pyrometers give a continuous reo ord of tho temperature on a revolving drum. - Illnmlnatlnsr the Thermometer. In winter months porchllghts are sel dom used for any purpose other than f6r Illuminating 'tho steps leading therefrom and a very practical use for It Is for the illumination of tho thermometer on the porch. It Is a decided luxury In the dark midwinter mornings to turn on tho light from Inside and read tho outside tem perature, without going out Into the cold.
