called quick - circulations Thereby the

"These heaters will consume ' not to
exceed Eft feetof gas-per hour, which
at aur present price of gas la an ax
penae ot a Jlfle'Over cents an hour.
They wilt heat sufficient water for an
ordinary bath tn SO to SO minutes, -thus
placing the expense of a bath at' the
minimum cost of cents. .
. "Then we have what ia known aa the

compared to the comfort that Is derived
from this heater, must not; be taken

. "How much dees the other kind of hot
water heater coat in gas consumed?"
- "The ordinary atyle '.of hot' - water

that the gas water heater has come to

Thla practice cannot be stopped en

Portland. Sept. I.i-To, the 'Editor of
The' Journal If you want to get gen
eral misinformation about traina apply
td the blithe young woman who responds
to the name of "Exchange 14" In the
telephone directory. There la no com
plaint about her manner. She Is excep
tionally courteous, but she either doesn't
listen or she doesn't know. Here's my
grievance, r Tesurday' my wife came in
on. thef train from Seattle due at 4:10
p. m. I telephoned about . 4 o'clock: to
"Exohange 14." My question waa exactly
thla: - "Is the regular train from Seat
tle due at 4:80 on -timer To which
"Exohange 14" replied promptly. "In at
:4i." For fear that the train might
be still further delayed I called up again
at quarter paat five, asked the same
question snd galn "Exchange 14". an
swered, -In at 1:41." o at i:4S I
reached the station,' took a look at the
bulletin board anddisoovered the 4:10
train marked on lime. , I hunted up
a man la uniform and aaked about It
"Burs." said he. "the 4:19 got in. at
4:16. five - minutes . ahead -of time, and
the flrat , aeotlon got In half an hour
earllen" As a result ;of the blundering
mlslnfbrmatlon given by "Exchange 14"
my wife had to struggle home aa beat
ahe could with two grips and a baby.
It seems to me the duty of the depot
company to. sea 'that persona who are
obliged- -to meet- Incoming passengers
should be given correct -Information
about trains. The depot company can
waste much 'needless time and temper
for- other folks try neglecting this duty
as It bss .neglected It this summer. Boms
one-correctly informed should .answer
Inquiries regarding traina . And inci
dentally th bulletin board might be
watched occasionally. I know or "one
case- where a train cams' In Juat 40 min
utes later than the time marked on the
bulletin board and the change was never
noted -on the board. - -A great deal may
be done In 40 minutes, and no public cor
poratlon has sny business to- waste that
tnueh of any-man's time needlessly. .. -
