Conn.—A home 103 years old has become the house of the future. .g. The magic wand of electricity, waved over kitchen, parlor and hed- rcom, has transformed an ancient farm abode here into a place that probably holds for the visitor mor3 shocks per square foot than any other homestead in America. A thousand servants worK in the house, but there is no servant problem. Fov the servants arc a multitude of electrical gadgets which O. If. Caldwcll, former Federal Radio Commissioner and owner of the estate, has installed *as an example of what the world's coming to, electrically sneaking. f)cors Open Themselves When Mr. and Mrs. Caldwcll drive borne at night, there's no tiresome getting out of the car to shove open the garage doars. laundering them and those colored things without the "guarantee" may mvc their lives prolonged It ccr- ,ln precautions nra taken with them. To fix pink or red, add one-half cup vinegar to one quart of water and soak the garment In this solu- lon for 15 cr 20 minutes. Hang to dry without, wringing. When perfectly dry,- wash as usual. • Lavender, orchid and violet tints ore made permanent by t'be-usc ol iiirpcnUne. Add from three-fourths to one cup of spirits ol turpentine to one quart of water.

A strong salt solution- !s recommended as a fixative for -black This can be used also for dark blue and to prevent colors'from running. However, sail is-said to hinder the action of soap, making clothes harder to wash. One cii] of salt Is used to one part, of water Some colors fade In the sunshine To prevent this they can be dipped in water In which alum has beei dissolved. Wash as-usual and before' hanging to dry, dip In the alum'.water. One tablespoon alum spot. Thorough rinsing is also necessary to keep colors bright. Soap left in materials has a tendency lo weaken the threads as well as tt:c colors and shortens 'the life of all cotton and lliu'ii fabrics.

The kitchen, with Its 26 placss lor employing electric ci.rrent. would bewilder the old-fashioned housewife- There's that one elcelric machine, for example, that has least 150 different uses—for everything from openin; a can ol peas to slicing bread and washing tht dishes.

If oil dropj from Ihe engine, there is an oil leak •ITIN? | somewhere—in the oil pan, through i the gaskets, loose screws or flooded crankcase. Tf it is a mailer o£ oil pumping, several serious causes niny be located for it. The most serious arc loose main bearings and worn pis- Ions and cylinder wnlls. Somelimes tlic cylinders have become out ol round from the constant slap of the- pistons against tlie wnlls nnd the imcvciniess of the crankshaft. If the connecting red is vrarjKd or bent, if the piston rings arc loose, or if there is too much clearance behind the compression ring and loo liUIc behind the oil rin£, oil will find Us way easily into the combustion chamber. Sometimes the oil pressure is too great and an excessive amount o! oil is putni)cd through the oil slots into the engine. Anolher cause for oil pumping may be uneven heat dislribnlion so thai only part o[ the enghia cools quickly while the rest remains overheated. This thins out he oil and enables it to work its way more easily into the upper part of the motor. elcctrk.Tily prepared, foil bcinz cooked in on appetizing way can ciliated to electrify the diners.

All Ihis Cald'.vcli regards nol as anythhij freaki.^. tut slmp'.y as the logical development c! elec- Thcrc aro limes when Ihe oil gauge does not help the motorist discover the loss of oil by pumping or leakage. At such times the oil in the crankcase is diluted by an ovcrsuiipSy of gasoline that iceps through Ihc pislnn clearances. Then only the quality of the oil becomes a sign ol its loss through Icakge or puinpiug. Worn engine bearings may be sns]>ected when oil has to be replenished olicn and a slight ktjock. like a Ihud, Is heard as the enjine pt'lls np hill or in starting. Often no knock may be heard In the ordinary course o fdriving, because tlic- bearings may not he .loose enough for this. But if Ihe bearings are worn enough lo cause excessive clearance, an extra amount of oil will be thrown up into the cylinders. The pislon ring will not. be able lo take care of this excessive oil and so will permit some of it to pump thro-.igh into the combustion i chambors.
