HOW TO OPERATE ELECTRIC FAN Device of Great Valne Ventilator and Can Be Placed Near Win dow and Uaed to Blow Smoke from Room. The electric (an was more of a curios ity than anything else until a very few years ago. Only in the higher priced hotels and In the private offices of the wealthy were electric fans to be found to any extent Now they ore common enough everywhere and we enjoy their gentle breeze in railroad and subway trains, in dining rooms, reception rooms, offices, shops and stores and In the home. The electric fan needs no care other than an occasional oiling. This olHnK should not be too generous, Just a drop or two now and then will be sufficient. Too much oil will leak out and run down the fan pedestal or will be whirled out on the blades and spattered over everything within range. The location of the fan where It will do the most good, and th least harm, Is all Important. It is not good policy to place the fan so it blows directly on a person. The steady breeze will cool the body too quickly and Is apt to lead to colds and lameness. If a breeze is desired the fan should be so placed that the air is "reflected" from the walls and thus thoroughly scattered to all parts of the room. Turn the fan towards the wall, at a sharp angle, and In this way It will move all the air In the room. The fan can also be placed on a high mantel so it will keep the upper air, which is al ways the warmest, In continuous motion. Often enough the temperature outdoors will drop very quickly, Generally the change follows the going down of the sun, or a thunder shower. This will leave the house full of hot air. If there Is no wind blowing it would take a long time to cool Count Your Employes Then Count Your Telephones Adequate Telephone Equipment Is Necessary To give a clear track to all calls for you from the outside.

DOUGLAS STREET; off the Interior of each room without the aid of a fan, In this case place the fan on the window led bo so it can pump out the hot air. By opening another window opposite the fan the coot outdoors will rush In to replace the expelled air. By placing a good fan In a window upstairs, the entire house can be quickly cooled In thli way. Generally the nights are cool following the hottest day. The thermome ter will show that It Is the house which Is hot, not the air outdoors. By replacln tho heated air of the house interior with the cool air outdoors the rooms can be quickly cooled and made comfortable for sleeping purposes. The electric fan Is also of great value as a ventilator. By arranging a bracket In the kitchen near the top of a window the fan can be used to blow the smoko, odors and heat of cooking outdoors and the kitchen can be made more tenatable. The odors of cooking, steam, fumes, etc., gather In the upper air near the celling. By placing the fan near the celling these fumes can all be blown outside. This will keep the kitchen cooler and prevent the odors from permeating the entire house. The electric fan Is also of value in keep ing flies out of the house. Flics do not like the electric fan. They will not re main where the fan Is buzzing. It is rather difficult to operate a fan In the average bedroom. It cannot be safely placed on a chair, as It will "creep" and fall off. If placed on the dresser It will make too much noise, owing to the sounding board effect of hollow furniture. The best way Is to fasten it to the window ledge with two small screws. Every fan Is provided with holes for screwing It fast as desired. Those thumbscrews can be easily and quickly adjusted, making the fan secure and In no danger of falling off the win dow in the night. The cord and switch can be located near the head of the bed, within easy reach of the sleeper, so that the fan can be turned on and off at will. If placed on the first speed the fan wilt make practically no noise and can safely be operated all night. It Is Immaterial whether the fan punT?fresh nlr Into the room or sucks the'usSa air out, the effect being the same. The first cost of an electric fan is not great. The small eight-Inch Is large enough for a small homo and the twelve Inch fan Is large enough for any size house. They can bo easily attached to the electric light socket and consume no more current than a small elcctrlo lamp. In fact, the eight-Inch fan can be used for a quarter of a cent an hour and tho twelve-inch fan for half a cent an hour.
