Franklin Phone 36l7 There Is Tremendou! "POWER" in Water! No. II of a Series Watch for them each Tuesday. The sun lifts water from the earth's surface anil thus l>uis into the water energy equal to the amount Iruit was required to lift it. When the water falls to Us former position, it releases this energy. In other words the power is developed in a similar manner to what happens when a man winds a flock. The power is stored in the clock spring by overcoming Ihe spring's resistance. I/ater the spring releases and gives out this stored power. It is therefore the man, not the spring, that really furnished the power to the clock, and in a similar manner water obtains its power from (he sun. Falling water exerts tremendous pmver. As an instance, Niagara Falls, where this power is harnessed, is employed to light cities, drive machinery anil supply heat many miles away. While water is one of our cheapest commodities it is one of our most important. A turn of the lap in your home puts it instantly at your disposal. Use it to the fullest advantage.
