The Electric Water Faucet.
Some of the electric device* for
household use are marvels of Ingenu-
ity and convenience. A little electric
beater l« shown which can be screwed
on to any faucet and which will fur-
nUh a balf gallon of water per min-
ute at 100 degrees temperature. It
will give a faster stream at a lower
temperature, or a slower stream at
a higher temperature. All double
piping and hot water apparatus can
bo eliminated by the simple adjust-
ment of one of these heaters, at sink,
bathtub or washbowl.
Then there is an arrangement
known as the "suspended unit" heat-
er. which Is a nickel or ailver-plated
tube, connected by wire with any
lighting circuit, and which may be
dropped Into any liquid It la desired
to heat. With It baby's food may be
warmed In a few moments, eggs or
coffee boiled In a few minutes or a
bath tub of water warmed sufficiently
In half an hour.

time may be thrown luto one.
During the last two years I have
made several successful transactions
along lines where I previously have
erred. To-day I believe that where one
geta to growing, the lower one hap-
pena to be when one atarted. tho
higher one will get when one ends.
When I was a boy I went Into a
country atore to buy some goose-qutll
toothpicks for a Christmas present.
To show you the kind of buyer I waa
at that time—I paid ten centa for a
package of a dozen, bought some other
things, and had three centa left. Lock-
ing the showcase over to see what I
should do with the three cents, I saw
a broken bundle and took three more
goose-quill toothpicks at a cent apiece.
I had heard my father say he liked
that kind of a toothpick, and I was
out for toothpicks.
Let me tell you about the kind of a
man the storekeeper was. He didn't
buy the way I did. He knew how to
buy to make money. He kept the
things that the people wanted. He
thought ahead of the people and
thought atralght. He knew how to
buy and to aell for more than he paid.
Much of my time waa devoted to
studying things thnt thia Mr. Store-
keeper never thought of, nnd my mind
evolved auch original but imposalble
plana that I earned for myaelf the
reputation of being "up In the clouds."
Recently a general manager Intro-
duced me to one of the directors of
his company. He said he had been
trying for aeveral years to pull down
to earth one of the legs of thia man!
to reviewing the last quarter of a
century. I am pleaaed to aee that soon
after making a mistake, I recognised
the mlatake, and by the time my
friends began to critlclie me, I had
made some headway In planning a
preventive of a repetition.
Sometlmea.- I had little victories.
About the time I got the toothplcka. I
went Into a hardware atore to get a
large pocket-knife. Pointing to the
knife I wanted, the old merchant put
bis hand In the ahowcaae, lifted the
knife a few Inchea from the box. told
me It waa $1.26, and put the knife
down without showing It to me. I
told him that that was the knife I
wanted and I counted out the money!
I enjoyed his surprise over my ability
to buy that priced knife.
On% morning before starting to help
work out our road tax. t made a boy-
ish brag to my father that I would
use a hoe or nothing. About fifteen
minutes later you might have seen
me climbing over the back fence to
trade my hoe for a shovel. The boss
had convinced me in about ten sec
onda that I needed a shovel. Since
then I have seen many smart and
strong men momentarily foolish
enough to unnecessarily say what they
would or wouldn't do, to their final
To-day I like to buy goods as a con-
sumer. Let me have a roll of bills
every day with which to roam through
the stores, without any obligations to
complicate the spending of It, and I
would make some decidedly good se-
lections. Not ao very long ago the
selections would have been about 20
per cent as good.
When about ten years old, I got to

pump that had a hose attached to It.
My boy frienda and I thought It great
fun to wet the big fellow, but soon
the battle turned and we found our-
selves soaked, and when my father
found me, I wasn't complimented over
the outcome. Since then I have tried
to keep out of kinds of fun which
would aurely enable the other fellow
to have the fun at my expense and

Fuel From Neglected Sources.
Interesting experiments are going
on In various parta of the world look-
ing toward the cheapening of fuel and
the more perfect burning of the coal
mined In great Industrial countries
like the United States, Germany has
nearly SiHl concerns which work up
coal dust into condensed fuel known
as briquettes, and these fuel factorlea
convert a vast amount of coal dust
Into forms which permit Its use for
many purposes, with entire satisfac-
tion to those who employ It. Enor-
mous quantities of coal dust have been
allowed to go to waste In the United
States, snd some authorities calcu-
late the kisa at not less than one and

ent coal consumption of the country.
