A WONDERFUL REFRIGERATOR. Baldwin Park Reader Describes Newly Invented Cooler at That Place. A valuable Improvement in the method of preserving milk, butter, eggs, fruits and vegetables may be seen on the ranch of Mr. C. L. Powell at Baldwin Park. This milkhouse, as It Is termed by the designer and builder, Mr. N. T. Anderson of Los Angeles, consists of a concrete structure with double walls, scientifically arranged with air and water chambers, through which air is kept in constant circulation and water constantly flowing, if necessary, thereby causing the temperature on the inside of the structure to be reduced sufficiently to make it an ideal refrigerator, in which milk can be hept swtet, for days, butter never can get rancid, eggs will retain their freshness indefinitely and fruit and vegetables can be preserved until a profitable market opens for their disposal. While Mr. Anderson is not prepared at present to give the public full details of his improvement, he has freely given out* enough information to people interested in this line for them to know that his refrigerator that cannot be claimed by any other refrigerator now in existence. Ice will be dispensed with entirely, which in itself is such a saving in time, labor, money and innumerable inconveniences, as to be a blessing in itself, and the temperature can be so regulated by the operator that it will be a pleasure rather than a burden to operate it. The original cost of construction will be very cheap and when once constructed can be operated with but a trifling expense—practically none at all. It will be neat, attractive and sanitary, and will last for all time in any climate. No doubt this refrigeration will be used the world over when its virtues and advantages once become known and it will be a veritable Godsend to the people of the Imperial valley or any other tropical or semi-tropical country, for its needs in such countries are well known. If it were used on the Los Angeles aqueduct or Panama Canal the objections which now seem to prevail on those jobs on account of decayed meats, etc., would be reduced to a minimum, if not entirely removed. By proper structural arrangement this refrigerator can be built and kept where the sun shines the hottest and still be relied upon to do its work of preservajioo,. • Several' ranchers who "fiave seen the one at Powell's ranch have expressed a desire to have one built at their respective homes at the earliest opportunity, as they are sadly in need of an improvement of this fcind to preserve their dairy products and fruits arid vegetables. But Mr. Anderson, who is an inventive genius in practical mechanics, and is also of a scientific turn of mind, desires to make a few very slight modifications in the general design of his refrigerator in order to get the best possible results in every way, and will then be ready to give to the public the full benefit of his invention and probably make some arrangement to furnish them to the market, which he says will be very soon. One of the most valuable uses that this invention may be put to is that in freezing weather, by the u.-^e of ordinary well water in the chambers, the temperature may be kept above the freezing point, thereby keeping the most delicate fruits and vegetables from being injured by frost. Score another point for the inventive genius of Southern California. ANGELING E. MERSHON. Why Some Merchants Do Not Advertise. With the summer time comes the season when news Is scarce nnd the foolish story joins the foolish question. This season which is now rampant among newspapers hits not only them but the a<*i vertlser. The average advertiser says, "I cannot advertise profitably in summer, for there is no business." He cuts out his advertising, does no business, and says he has proven his case. But has he? The Waterman Pen Company for years did business on the assumption that there were two seasons when fountain-pen selling could be made active—Christmas and Easter; the three months' interval between De- .cember 25 and Easter presented no problems; they were collecting their money, replenishing stocks, and generally busy; but from Easter to Christmas Is approximately nine months, and as the governor of North Carolina said to the governo r of South Carolina, "It's a long time be- iween"— The money spent in carrying 'the business organization over many dull months ate a big hole in the profits; therefore, they determined to spend money in order to make money, and they spent it in the "worst" season of the year—th« summer. Of course, you would now say that summer, when people are travelling, is a good time for fountain-pens, but the stationers didn't know it, the manufacturer's didn't know it, and the public didn't know it until Waterman started to advertise and found it out. Now the summer is one of their very .best seasons. Frequently one hears the statement, "There is no business—every one is away." What proportion of the population gets away for more than two out of the twelve weeks of summer.? What proportion receives less money in summer than at any other time of the year? One of the old agencies had the slogan, "The time to advertise is all the time," and this statement comes very close to being true. It Is easy for a man to persuade himself that there ie no business. Many a man has proved the statement during thase hard'times. Other men have refused to believe It, have Insisted on doing business AND HAVE DONE BUSINESS.—Corona Courier.
