per kiliowatt in your city is 10 cents
per kilowatt for one hour, or 1000
watts, then it will cost o r of a
cent for ten watts for one hour
At this rate the ten watt lamp could
be left burning for 100 hours, or
nearly four days and a half, before
it would burn up ten cents' worth
The next size is the 15 watt lamp
which gives about ten candle-power
of iigbt. This lamp will consume
fifteen ctnls’ worth of electricity in
100 hours of continuous burning at
the ten cent rate In one hour it
will consume 0.15 cents’ worth
of electricity. In 10 hours of con
tinuous service it will have burned
up only $0.015,or a rent aud a half’s

lamp is the 25 watt, or twenty can

burn for forty hours before consum

The largest practical sized lamp
for use in the home is the forty watt
lamp. This lamp should be used
only where a large amount of light
is necessary for short intervals. It
will burn continuously for 25 hours
for a kilowatt of current.
When one is able to figure out
the exact cost of an incandescent
