Aa there seems to be but a very
small percentage of water and light
users that understand the reading of
meters and the subsequent figuring
of bills The News representative so
licited the following Information
from the local water and light com
pany: In reading a water meter the dial
at the lover left hand side should
not be counted as one revolution if
the hand registers one cubic foot
1V& gallons) on the dial next to
the right. Also when the hand on
ftfl3jaffiifttttt4tiflftft the next dial makes one full revolu
tion 11 inuicuies mui more huh pass
ed through the meter 10 cubic feet
or 75 gallons of water and so ou.
Therefore if you find the hand be
tween 5 and 6 on the lower dial
you should read it five and between
one and two on the next dial to the
right it would read one and between
8 and 9 on the third dial it would
read eight, and between two and
'three on the next dial read two nnd
between four and five on the last dial
read four, the total reading would
then be 42615.
It would follow then that If the
meter read 41324 on the 20th of
one month and thirty days thereafter
the reading was 42815 It would
show a consumption or difference of
1491 cubic foeti Seven and one
half gallons to the cubic foot would
make 1 1,182 Vj gallons, which figur
ed pn the basts of 20 cents per 1000
gallons would make the cost $2.23.
To read a light meter begin with
the right hand dial, one complete
revolution of which is 10 kilowatts,
and moves the dial next to the left
one point and so on to the fourth
dial. Should you find the hand on
the first dial to the left between 5
and 6 read it five and the hand on
the next dial between 0 and 9 read it
nine. The reading would then be
95. With the amount of the previous
reading deducted you will know" the
coiiAiimptlou'ot that period.
The rate Is based upon a sliding
scale tOid is 15 cents per klllowatt
for the first hour's consumption and
5 cents per kilowatt thereafter.
By the "first hour's consumption"
is meant the burning of all connected
lights for one hour each day for 30
days and is one and a half times the
avereage number of 16 candle power
lamf in the house. For instance,
W)Rh six 8-candle power lamps and
three 16-caudle power lamps you
will find an average of six lights and
the first hour's consumption to be
nine kilowatts. Your rate would
then be 15 cents per kilowatt up to
nine kilowatts included, and five
cents thereafter. For example should
you use 15 kilowatts during a month
and your first hour's consumption 9
kilowatts your bill would be nine
kilowatts at 15 cents per kilowatt,
or $1.35, and the balance of the
15 kilowatts or ti kilowatts at 5
cents per kilowatt or 30 cents. The
total bill would then be $1.65.
It will be readily seen that It is
much to the Interest of the ronsiiin

The school ma'am Is probably
enough "talked about" without any
thing more being Bald on the sub
ject, but In view of the recent de
mand for betterment In the quality
of our teachers It may not be out of
place tof say a few words. The school
ma'am Is a good subject, anyway,
and does not receive as much con
sideration as she deserves.
School ma'ams are born, not made
ajid they are usually born about
twenty-five years earlier than their
There are two clashes of school
ma'ams those who have sufficient
fundB to enable them to secure the
education necessary to at once com
mence teaching in the higher grades
and those who start at the foot of
the ladder and work up.
The foot of the ladder is the coun
try school which, by the way, has
turned out some of our best and
greatest citizens, duo In part, at least
to' the instruction of the country
school teacher, God bless her.
The rural school ma'am is a per
son of considerable Importance with
in her sphere of action and a uew
teacher is sufficient warrant for a
special meeting of the Ladies' Aid In
any rural community.
She is usually a sweet and demure
little bunch of dimples and sunshine
of eighteen summers nnd no wint
ers who has ncqulred sufficient
knowledge of mathematics to be able
to divide the attention of the older
boys of the community and add to
the admiration of the others, and
has passed a graded school examina
tion in the balance of the studies.
For pupils she has from ten to
fifty assorted youngsters of all ages
and sizes, many of whom their par
ents nnd the Sunday school have
been unable to discipline and the
little school mu'am Is expected to do
for them what their parents and God
cannot do and she usually does.
In addition to teaching the young
Idea how to shoot, while herself
dodging cupld's arrows, sho must
treat each pupil so us to. retain the
good will of the parents of each,
must act as a social pivot for the
community at large, be a moral
guide and rule to faith, sometimes
act as janitor of the school and per
form various other and manifold du
ties, for all of which she receives the
munificent salary of $20 to $40 a
month, payable to suit the board of
directors and contingent upon the
condition ot the dintr-t treasury.
There's nothing more Important in
our great Bchool system than the
school ma'am the proxy-parent of
our children, the molder of character
and the bulwark of American liber
ties, the guiding star of the republic.
Another reason there are not more
efficient school ma'ams Is because
about the time a school ma'nm gets
pretty well up in her work along
comes a real live male man and in
veigles her into doing his cooking
for him. School ma'ams make an
excellent quality of wives especial
ly the country variety, which is us
ually more tender and edible than
those grown In the cities.

Is the month In which there
is a day set apart for national thanks
giving, though a cheerful heart is
thankful every day. It Is a good
thing, however, for the people to
be reminded periodically of the fact
that as a nntion we have much to be
thankful for, or whether wo cele
brate the day simply or with enough
turkey and stuffing to Invite indiges
tion, let us mark It by a resolve to
be better farmers and better citizens
than ever before. Nono nf us is too
humble or obscure to exert a whole
some Influence, day by day. If we
do nothing more than greet our
neighbor with a cheerful face and a
kind word we shall shed a benedic
tion over an entire community. Let
us therefore give thanks not only
upon one day of the year but every
day of our lives.
