—but did you know just how many days
were colder than the same period last year?
f ft *HE WEATHER is the most universal topic
-*• of conversation. But few people really know
anything about it. Feelings are so deceiving! If
it’s hot, most people say, “P-h-e-w! this is the
hottest weather I ever saw!”—if it’s cold, they
jump just as far the other way and say, "B-r-r-r!
This is the coldest weather I ever saw!” They’re
probably wrong both times. It’s so hard to re-
member what the temperature actually was at
any given time. But those of you who said right
along, “This is the coldest February we’ve had
for years,” were correct! The mean temperature
for the 31 day period from January 21 to Feb-
ruary 20 was the lowest in fifteen years! There
were more cold, disagreeable days in this climate
than during any similar period for all that time.
Here are the comparative figures for this year
and last year, based on mean temperatures at
Dallas, a more or less central point in Lone Star
You will note that 26 days in the 31 day period had a lower
mean temperature this year than last year, the average being
16.96 degrees lower. In one stretch, from February 1 to 14,
inclusive, the mean temperature was an average of 21 de-
grees lower this year than last. Eight days this year show
freezing, 32 degrees, or below freezing, as a mean average
temperature, against no f/eezing mean temperatures for a
like period last year. Such a long period of cold, disagreeable
weather, with much sleet, ice and cold rain, means that gas
heaters were worked considerably over time! All who could
stay inside did, day and night. This meant larger gas con-
sumption. Naturally gas bills tor this period will be some-
what higher than for the same period last year—and com-
pared with the preceding 31 day period this season. Twenty-
five days in the 31 day period from January 21 to February
20 showed lower mean temperatures than the period from
December 21 to January 20; an average of 13.64 degrees
lower! When you compare gas bills, compare these tem-
perature figures. And, be thankful with us that Lone Star
Gas Service was able to come through this unprecedented
weather as efficiently as it did!

Every Day Is Wash Day!
Monday came near being made the national washday—

growing higher and higher as each day passed.
Now it’s sunny Monday—thanks to our Laundry Ser-
vice. _We*ll do every piece of the family washing spick and
span, and do it any day yon say.
