How European City Utilizes W ater
Power Which Otherwise Would Be
of No Value.
THE STAYTON BAKERY
An eloctrlc-hentlng system which
utilize* power that would otherwise go
to waste has been (nstnlled In a school
In a southern European city. The ex
isting hot-water pipe* and radiators
are connected with n well-insulated
water tank o f l.ltOO-gallons’ capacity.
In this reservoir electric resistances
arc built, and at night are supplied
with current which raises the w ater
to well above tile boiling point. Tho
cost i.i the curYiiit Is low because the
water power used to produce it nor»
mallj would go to waste. During the
day tli»» hot water i* allowed to circu
late through the radiators, its vol
ume being sullle nt to warm
rooms without u- ng more current.
