Ice Plant For Every Hoiri
Comes Next Say Experts
- . . , ....
An ice manufacturing plant in every
household, located right in the family
ice box, s one of the latest electrical
possibilities, acording to W. M, Ham
ilton who has just returned from at
tending the annual meeting of the
Northwestern Electrical Light and
Power Association held in Seattle.
The electricians claim that within
a short time there will be placed on
the market a domestic refrigerating
plant, run by an electric motor which
will drive a small machine that will
produce ice, just as the big plants do.
In the, ice box thore w$ll be cooling
coils and the little machinery for pro
ducing ice. All that the housekeeper
will need to do when ice is wanted,
will be to turn on the switch which
turns the motor of the machine which
produces ice. The cojls will soon be cov
ered with frost and in another part of
tho box small cakes of ice iv ill form.
Mr. Hamilton says tho electrical ex
perts say the home refrigerating plant
will be ready, for a commercial basis
by next summer.
To ' ovoid delinquency and interest
payment of 12 per cent per, annum, the
second installment of taxes must reach

of this week. The time officially ex
pires October 6, but as this happens to
bo Sunday, Saturday is tho limit. JE
taxes are. not paid by November 1, ther
is an addtional flat penalty of 5 per
Sheriff W. L. Neodhcm suggests that
those who intend to pay this week
should send their checks with the state
ment of taxes paid for the first half, or
if this is not available, to find out from
tho sheriff 's office the amount, due and
to remit by check. By so doing there
will bo avoided tho grand rush of Fri
day and Snturday. Mr. NeodliRin says
that any checks"' mnil, on -which thero is
a postmark of October's will bo received
although it will be n dny of two Inter
and possibly several days before tho
sheriff's office can catch up with the
work and mail receipts. But the main
thiug is to pay by check, .making it
more convenient for nil, Mr. Ncedhnm

The open season is now on for the re

In recent years, in order to teach geo
graphy ae it is and not as in school
books, it has been the custom for the
bright eyed pupils of the junior high
schools and in lower grades to write for
illustrated literature, tell all about the
beautiful Willamette valley and tho
beautiful city of Salem, known as the
city of magnificent distances.

A letter from little Eunice Brown will
be marked e Mbit No. 2. She hves at
Sunnyside, Wash., and doesn't intimate
that Salem is in one of the Now England
states. All Eunice wants is some sconic
literature Due to the fact that Salem
has had no literaturo prepared for the
past five years, the old pamphlet she
will receive will moke but little refer
