Yon have fol lowed the sign of success wher ever you have prospered. Why not follow the successful lead of the advertisers on this page? Women are to an almost surprising ex tent, adopting thfi means which have boon given them for easier nd better work. By far tho great majority ot women have discovered that the modern way of disposing of housework brings them out far ahead of their sisters who do not care for such things. This docs not moan exactly that they all go about It in a business-like way. As for Instance, last year one vacuum cleaner on East Eighty first street. New York City, did duty .at six house cleanings. But the owner, oe lug a good natured person, claimed not to object to her neighbors' "methods." being only glail that she had such a use ful article to loan. The electric washing tnachtno which the same lady found Indispensable In her own house cleaning was spared so much out side activity because of Its more station ary nature. The vacuum cleaner and the electric cL-nViliin. machine form a very useful partnership for ths house cleaning period what one docs not do the other docs. A woman never feels better satisfied with house cleaning as when she has done or superintended the doing of every bit of It herself. With the electric washing ma chine she Is enabled to personally see to It that the heavy bed clothes are put away In the very hest condition and the vacuum cleaner is Just as sure a servant for the rugs and draperies. The Tale of the Wash Tub PRICE $55.00. In olden times Blue Mon day was the cans of many a weary woman's worries. She bent her back from morn till night over a toil some tub. Today she doea the family washing in an hour and a happy one, too at but a fraction of tho old cost, becauso she uses the Maytag Elutric Washer Have you one in your home? They are tho beat, and Btand up under every test Investigate. THE ELECTRIC SHOP f WOLFE ELECTRIC CO.) 1810 Faniam St. Tyler 1414 "Wire for Us and We Will Wire for You." Ancient Burying Vaults Lighted by Eleotrio Lamps The catacombs of St. Callxtu. near Rome, wero not long ago Illuminated with thousands of electrlo lamps, filling the gloomy vaults and puesages with a bright light, whose effect, as It fell upon tho rows of liones and skeletons, is de scribed ns being startling and almost un canny. The use of electric lights In tho catacombs Is perhaps the most unique example of modern practical science brought face to face with antiquity. This, however, would be exceeded by tho In troduction of the electric light In the gal leries of the great pyramids of Kg.vpt. It Is reported that the Egyptian government has for some time been considering the feasibility of this. ' At "least two places within tho Arctic circle have received the electric light. Hammerfest and Tromso are now lighted by electricity, so that they have an artificial daylight during the long win ter darkness. Display of Lights Shows Way Advance Has Been Effected Tor the enlightenment of those who do not realize that a great Improvement has been made In tho methods of lighting since tho first electric light was made, the recent Woman's exposition at Central Armory In Cleveland exhibited side by side the old carbon lamps (first type made) and the new Mazda lamps. Tho difference In the quality of the light was very apparent when a carbon lamp and a Mazda lamp were placed to gether In a portable lamp and light from each observed separately. As a mere matter of history this dis play Interested a great many people while others were glad to see what they already vaguely knew, so plainly demon strated. Electric Plant of City Taken Off to Sea byTidal Wave According to reports, the electric light plant which has supplied the town of Ocos, duatcmaln. for the last four years Is about to weigh anchor and put out to sea. Four years ago a steamer of tho Kcsmos line, whllo making a voyage to Ban Francisco from European ports, was curled into shoal water near Ocos. by n tidal wave, but rested on an even keel with undamaged machinery. An enter prising Guatemalan Is said to have run wire from the ship to the shore and mado effective use of the ship's generating plant to supply the local community. A Philadelphia salvage company has suc ceeded In refloating the ship, however, and oil lamps will probably come Into fashion again In Ocos. WIRE RIGHT, SAYE MONEY rians for Wiring House that Will Result in Benefits. MANY 0IR0UIT8 AN ADVANTAGE Sim niffrrrnt litiira Should Mr In on Hrpnrnte Motors In Order to Oh tnln llettiireil Trlre for the Current There sie so many thliiRs to which electricity Is applied nowadays that al most every newly tbullt or newly wired limine ban provisions for Its tiso other than that of lighting. When planning for electricity It will pay to spend money Initially and save the extra expense later for running spe cial circuits (series tf wires) to provide for tho use of electricity for conning. laundry work, cleaning, etc., and un healing, aside from the lighting. Circuits like the following, with properly placed receptacles for plugging In. In sure the greatest convenience nud least expense in the use of electrlcltyl 1. A heating circuit to the dining room, which may ho used for a coffeo perco lator, Umster, chafing dish. etc. 2. A heating circuit to tho kitchen, which may bo used for all cooking de vices and for a range If desired. 3. A heating circuit to the laundry, which can be used for the laundry Irons. 4. A heating circuit to each bath room, which can be used for an electric radia tor and water heater. 5. In a country residence there is fre quently occasion for tho use of electricity for water supply and for charging sto rago batteries of electric vehicles. ft. These circuits then niso permit in stant attachment of vacuum cleaners to any one. In all tho above cases provision should bo made for a separate mater In onler to obtain this reduced price for current. Provision should surely be made for these circuits at tho time tho house Is built to savo oxpenso later. A Help for the Room that is Only Poorly Lighted The portable floor lamp Is one of tho most convenient electric comforts ono can have In tho home. These, ore made In several styles and Bell for prices ranging from V up. Most styles are adjustable to any height or position so they may ho used for In dividual rcudlng or at tho piano. A rather unique and a very effective way to uso one of these lamps as an "economizer" Is to turn tho reflector so tho light Is thrown upward to tho celling and then reflected Into the room. From a white ceiling a soft warm glow Is shed all over the room ample, light except for reading, and a great relief to the eyes If one lives In a homo equipped with poor celling fixtures.

As a rule we avoid looking at a bright light ot any kind, but at the time of an eclipse of the sun there are ninny people who are so cuilous as to what Is happening to old sol that they will try to look direct- at him. This re sults In scotoma, which may persist for a long time and which In some cases may beconi permanent. It lias not been settled satisfactory whether Injuries caused by bright lights are due to light rays or to heat lays or to actinic rays, but probably all liavo a part In tho result. In any event It Is nnver wlso for a person to look directly at a very bright light, for If the light Is very strong and It Is fixed even for a brief time, there may be chances In th retina which never can bo remedied. brainage of Coal .

This will bo one of the most striking applications of electric distribution and control of power yet presented. FRESH LINEN IN THE SUMMER Family Feels Sure of it Where There is an Electric Iron.
