This question is answered by other farmers, who al- rendy use electricity, and who calculated their savings from substituting electricity for other sources' of light and power. For example, Mr, and Mrs. Frank Ruse, of Canal Winchester, Ohio, find that the electric power pays for itself. They substract the monthly cost of gasoline used for pumping water to the milk cooler, for running the washing machine, and for vairous other purposes. Then, they take out the cost of kerosene for lighting, and the frequent replacement of broken lamp chimneys, and find that the electric bill is offset. Labor Saving After adequate electric refrigeration is installed in his dairy, Mr. Ruse expects to keep his milk in better condition, and to get a higher price for it. With proper electric lighting in the barn, ho can care for his cows more easily and efficiently. With this saving in time and labor he believes he will be able to care for more cows and increase his income. Where hard work is made easier, tion. During warm months the milk fnklUehtly soured and was unsalabl fcfter the trip. Now, It not only af- Mves at the market sweet, but it has received a much higher rating, and brings a belter price. These examples indicate that when the farmer sits down with pencil and paper and compares the cost of electric power—where the charges for it are reasonable—to the cost of gasoline or kerosene, and with the waste that occurs where there is no electric service, he is no longer afraid of electricity costing more than he can afford. In face, he may even find that in addition to being a labor-saver and ft convenience, electric power actually costs clss. , more work can be accomplished. One Indiana farmer saves ?56 a year by Brifiding feed electrically, and he further saves himself the talk of handling the ground feed twice. In many farm homes without refrigeration, food spoilage costs several dollars a month even in winter, since nearly as much is spoiled by freezing BS by summer heat. Where ice is purchased, the amount to be deducted frorn the electric bill is usbstantial. In many cases, farm families figure that savings on food alone will justfy electric installation. Cooling Milk A dairy farmer in the Middle West reports that an electric milk cooler installed on his farm has saved time and labor, and cut down waste to an almost unbelievable minimum. Before using the electric cooler, he carted the milk 10 a creek a quarter of a mile, a way.. Each morning he reloaded it on a wagon and took ft to the railroad sta- It's No'Sad-Iron' WithElectricity Electric Power Eliminates Working Over Scorching Stove Almost without exception where .1 iome is wired for electricity, there will x found an electric iron. East of landling, convenience, and economical operation are the chief reasons for .he iron's popularity with housewives. To the woman who must do her housework without modern conveniences, ironing is the insult added to the injury of washing. Where irons must be heated on a coal or woo< tove, it means that the operator mus work in an overheated room. She nust walk back and forth many times o change the irons as they cool. The ron is frequently too hot and she must wait a few moments for it to ool, or risk scorching her husband's >st shirt. The handles of old-type rons become hot and a "holder" is necessary. When the "holder" slips, a blistered hand is usualy the result But that is not the worst of it. With perspiring grow, a blistered hand and aching feet, the unfortunate housewife still has the stove to consider. It will not burn indefinitely without attention. She must stop in the middle of a ruffle to run to the wood-box, or to put on an extra shovel or two of coal. Then she must wash her soiled hands to keep from smudging Betty's dress with soot. If a neighbor drops in for a chat on her from town, the stove must be "dampered," the irons pushed back and later the whole operation must be started over again. Fortunate is the woman who is able to do her ironing the modern way. The new electric irons are smoothly streamlined and of proper weight. Automatic heat control makes scorching impossible.

When rain beats against the .window pane or when early twilight •falls, light-conditioning will make eyesight-conserving and beautified light available at the turn of electric switches. Scientific Standards A home la light-conditioned when Its lighting meets scientific standards for eyesight protection. The term may refer to Inexpensive but correct new lighting In a cottage or to the approved Illumination In a pretentious home. A single room may be light-conditioned by following the new rules. Or an entire home, from basement to attic, can be conditioned against gloomy days and long evenings. Not for many years have there been so many developments as recently In home lighting. First Important departure came with the unearthing of new scientific fac.ts .011 the. relation O f Ijghr to sight. To give the more abundant light which researchers -found was needed, shades of lamps grew bigger and table lamp bases grew taller An instrument was perfected to measure home lights quickly and without fuss. Providing enough light to see safely was thus taken out of the realm of guesswork. Light-conditioning has sprung from all these developments. Planned for Comfort How to light-condition your own living room is illustrated by the accompanying picture. The lights here were planned for the comfort of a father, mother; and two children, as well as for the beautifying of the home. Notice that the lighting presents a symmetrical appearance.

There is no need to clean and sandpaper the iron before using. It remains bright and smooth as long as it asts, which with care, means from wenty years to a life time. Occasion- illy, perhaps, the cord must be replac- they last for years. With the electric iron, the operator may sit or stand in one place until the ironing is finished. No walking is necessary, so it is easy on the feet as well as on the hands and clothes. .The-electric energy consumed, Jby a hand iron is about 1.2 kwhi amonth -for 1 person; or about 6 kwh a month for the average size family. The cost of operation for, a family of five, at a 5-cent kwh rate would be: 30 cents a month;for 6 kwh. The cost of operation, however, varies With the rate and .with the efJHcie.ncy.with which tha:iroh. is used. Long periods of heating the E. O.
