A dog may be man's best friend, but'we feel sure that th| electric wall outlet
is woman's best friend. For through it comes the labor saving current to as-
sist in all the household chores. A flip of a switch will flood the house with
light, toast bread, make coffee, cook a meal, wash the dishes, do the laundry

the new refrigerated oirconditioners . . . cheaper than going to the moun-
tains or sea shore.
Electricity is chcap. The cost per KWH decreases with the larger quantities.
Ask your home-owned power and light company for a quantity rate scale.
