Anything from a SKYSCRAPER to a BUNGALOW
____s Is now the season when those
who stay at home are being regaled
with discourse on European customs
by their more venturesome friends.
Each traveler sees best what he has
been trained to sec: the actor de-
scribes theaters, the man of business
dissimilar commercial practice, and sor
forth. Accordingly, It Is fitting for an-
other to present jottings on his own
subject, that Is, on the applications of
electricity rather than Its purely tech-
Among the average voyagers, the
first and most obvious comment is the
greatly Increased usage of electricity
within the last few years, especially
on the Continent Itself. In fact. It
might be safely said that practically
all Institutions designed to attract
American tourists, advertise their elec-
trical supply. This may be seen best
perhaps In England. Take, for ex-
ample. a provincial town of some 80,-
000 .Inhabitants like Winchester which
boasts considerable historical Import-
ance. el-avlng the "best hotel” out of
the question, there Is a small Inn, dat-
ing back to the sixteenth century,
whose age-darkened rafters partic-
ularly attract Americans In search of
the picturesque. The brass knocker
may antedate Shakespeare, but within
are electric lights.
Nowhere Is shown more strikingly
this contrast between the mediaeval
and the modern, than In the famous
churches and cathedrals of Europe.
At the time of the last coronation,
electric lights were Introduced Into
Westminster Abbey; they are also to
he found in the great cathedrals at
Winchester and Canterbury.
Across the Channel, Amiens still pos-
sesses no artificial illumination except
candles, but the equally ancient edi-
fice at Houen is lit electrically. More
venerable yet are the two great
churches at Caen, built by William
the Conqueror and his wife Mathilda
at the close of the twelfth century.
Today, nearly eight hundred years
later, the two abbeys still stand with
hardly a stone’s difference. But In
both these stately mediaeval monu-
ments are electric lights.—The Edison
Back to Nature, with
Electricity As a
A DEEP MINE MOTOR
The Pacific Gas and Electric com-
pany Is supplying power -to operate
a plunger pump In the Champion mine
90# feet below the bed of Deer Creek,
la the heart of the Nevada mining
region. The wire* which carry the
current from the little nub-station st
the bead of the mine down to the 250-
horse-power mortor, run through an
inclined shaft 1,700 feet long. Thus
power is brought to the mine many
over canyons, mountains, for-
aata and plains. Its purpose Ss to
keep this deep mine free from water.
SCIENTIFIC FACTORY LIGHTING
Poor lighting in the factory is poor
economy; but enameled steel reflec-
tors. and Mazda lamps give Ideal Il-
lumination at low cost. The cost of a
very liberal amount of light Is small
compared with the cost of labor. A
slight saving in lighting bills Is likely
to be offset many times by the Im-
paired efficiency of the workmen and
the consequent decrease in output.
Then there Is the matter of accidents.
They have been shown to occur most
frquently In those months which have
the least daylight. Tike reason is to
be found tn poor lighting.

IF YOU ARE LIVING IN THE PRES-
ENT, USE MODERN
A city dwoller spending a few days
or weeks In the country Is generally
caricatured as a person sacrificing a
great deal In the way of home conven-
iences for the happiness of the wilds.
I have been very much put to it re-
cently to understand why this Idea of
country life still holds good. I have
returned from a visit to the country
(I feel very much like calling it sub-
urbs) where I enjoyed myself thor-
oughly every minute of the time, and
I am Just a little too "sot In my ways”
to easily do without the handy things
which I have had for years Just be-
cause 1 am visiting.
1 was really surprised at the facil-
ities which my friends and their
neighbors near and far had for work
and play and comfort. It was so per-
fectly natural. In approaching the
house upon the hill upon my arrival
the evening to be -welcomed by the
porch light that I did not even notice
It Indeed It was not until my host-
ess switched on the electric lights In
my room that I realized that they had
made a very marked Improvement
since I had been here before.
I at once became sorry that I had
not obeyed that Impulse to put my
small sized electric Iron Into my suit
case so that 1 might press out my
crumpled shirt waist for the next day
without It being necessary to take It
to the kitchen and display what a re-
markably poor packer I am.

Venison Cutlets With Apples.
Wipe, core and cut four apples tn

Cut a slice of venison one-half inch
thick In cutlets. Sprinkle with salt
and pepper, and cook three or four
minutes in a hot chafing dish; then

wine drained from apples, and twelve
candied cherries cut In halves. Re-

After showing me the repositories
for my various belongings my friend
brought forth from the closet some-
thing which she well knew pleased her
many guests better than anything else
she had ever provided for their own
particular use—a small electric Iron-
ing board. ■•This." she said, "Is just
ss much s part of this room as Is the
linen and I find out that It is Just as
And so the more I saw the more I
became impressed with the fact that
my hostess was a wise woman for she
certainly had not been niggardly with
her new servant In providing her ap-
pliances to work with. At first I
wondered If this electric servant In
the house would detract In any way
from the real charm of the farmhouse
—would make too much of a modern
place out of nature’s own confines,
but foolish person that I am, what Is
more true to nature than esse and
contentment — much accomplished
without much trouble. It adds a
great deal to the tranquil outside to
have clear weather within.
It seems strange that It Is neces-
sary to urge people to act upon the
principle expressed In our caption, be-
cause theoretically. It Is the only thing
that they would think of doing; but
It Is necessary, nevertheless and the
reason Is that they do not realize the
In large cities, especially, the con-
ditions of life have changed very ma-
terially In a few years, due to the de-
velopment of public utilities.
Further, the development of the
modern public utilities has been so
startling and so extensive In scope as
to literally remake the method of liv-
ing for every one who enjoys their
advantages. Following a natural law,
the energies of each Individual reach

out to other things and expend them-
selves further or In new directions dl
rectly In proportion to the time and
energy saved by all these modern con-
It follows again that only those who
take full advantage of all the con-
veniences which really affect them
materially can expect to keep up with
the procession; and this statement
will be found to be true whether ap-
plied to the conduct of a business, a
manufacturing Industry, or the per-
sonal habits and activities of a house-
keeper or a society woman.

Cool and efficient electric light and
the Invaluable electric fan at once
suggest themselves as the most obvi-
ous conveniences for all Indoor work-
ers in the heated term. As for those
who are doing the work In the homes

thing else, the electric flat Iron, are

The wise ones are using electrical
conveniences wherever possible. It
pays to do so.

The death of Mrs. Minerva Alex-
ander in San Antonio last Monday
morning as a result of the shock
from seeing her home burn down, re-
calls the fact that Captain Robert
F. Alexander, her husband, was the
original owner of Alexander's addl-
tio tn this city. Captain Alexander
was also seriously burned in hte fire
and his condition is said to be criti-
cal. Ho is a Confederate veteran hav-
ing served throughout the war, and
has been a resident of San Antonio
for the past twenty years. He served
as an aldermRn during the Hicks ad-
ministration in that city- Mrs. Alex-
ander was a sister of the late Miss
Thlra Westcott of this city. .
