The kitchen Is the workshop of
the home In it the housewife
spends about 4rr per cent of her
time.'" .' U ;.. : "-'' ;.' y.',
A dark kitchen is like a gloomy
day your spirits drop and your
work is Ione in a half-hearted
fashion. Then the sun comes out
and presto your head goes up,
your spirits rise and your work is
mere child's play.
: Records show that from 75 to
80 per cent of the kitchens through
out the country are improperly
lighted that they " have Inferior
equipment, too small and badly
located lamps, or glaring unshad
ed lamps that create dense shad
ows, causing . eye strain and ' de
fective eyesight, i
' In conjunction with many other
electric lighting companies, . the
Portland, Electric Power company
is carrying on a campaign for bet
ter kitchen lighting. They have
a force of men demonstrating a
"daylight kitchen unif? to their
customers. . ' j , r
This unit is specially designed
for lighting kitchens. It consists
of a very neat and substantially
built porcelain enamel holder and
a full diffusing glass shade. The
kitchen is flooded with a soft even
light, that gets into all the corner
Illuminating the shelves of the
cupboard or the kitchen cabinet;
makes it possible to see in the
oven - when baking- or roasting;
and does away .with objectionable
shadows. ' The housewife does not
stand in her own light while
working at the sink or table.
In addition the unit Is equipped
with a, convenience outlet so that
the flat iron, toaster or other ap
pliances may be used whether the
light Is burning or , not
The company representatives
have been calling on the custom
ers, demonstrating' the light and
giving them an opportunity of try
ing it for seven days without cost.
When the customer is not entirely
satisfied the company removes the
lamp. They are placing the lamps
with their customers on a basis
of small monthly " payments so
that all may have the benefit of a
well lighted kitchen.
