Henry Ford has moved Edison's
original Menlo Park laboratory to
Dearbourn, Michigan, and on the
twenty-first of October Mr. Edison
re-enacted the invention of the in
candescent lamp. ,
It is believed that this invention
has done more for tho world than
any other invention. It has revolu
tionized industry and has brought
about great advances in our civili
zation. Although Ediron is one of tho
world's busiest men, he finds time
for the advancement of youth. His
career should be an inspiration to
all boys andg iris.
