LIGHTING RATES
A » there seem to be a wrong impression
with regard to the proposed change in the light­
ing rates, we offer the following that all may
know just what it means:
About eight yean ago the rating on
lamps was changed from a candle-power rating
and since that time, as you well know, have
been rated by watts. Therefore we are asking
for a change of tariff from the candle power
rating and put on the watt rating.
On figuring this new rate there has been
added 11-100 of a cent per watt and then give
a 10 % discount if bills are paid on or before
the 17th of the month. If the discount of 10 %
Is taken it leaves our flat rate the same as it
formerly was.
We believe that the new rate will work
much better for all concerned than the o*d rate.
If any further information is desired we
would be glad to answer any questions our
customers desire to ask.
Yours for better service.

As its best reply to the charges
that the administration has been
dilatory and inefficient in its war
work, and that because of that
delay and incompetency our
troops are not properly equipped
and many of our soldiers have

of the record of our shortcomings
in the Spanish-American war.

An Irishman who was getting the worst of it in a fight
was asked if he would say "enough?” He replied: "If I
had strength left to say that, I wouldn’t be licked.”
That's the proper spirit. Never give up. A quitter
never gets anywhere. If hard luck strikes you, brace up
and go on just as bravely as you can. However, a little
