Why Not Use Electric Lights?
Stop scratching matches on jour wall.
Those streaky match scratches look
mighty bad on anySwall. But as long as
you continue to use gas or oil you ye got
to use matches.
Tha "matchless light" is the electric
light, a simple twist of the wrist does it.
We are improving and perfecting our
lighting service in this city and can give
better service for less money than ever
in the history of the city.
The cost of wiring has been reduced
