The TimeB-Herald learns that
the electric lights are to be shut
down today indefinitely. It
seems tho Mill Company has
raised the price for power to a
figure that the light people can
not run them with any profit,
hence they suspend. It is very
inconvenient for the people of
the town not to have electric
lights in the business houses,
homes, churches, the streets
dark and altogether present
gloom. There should be an off ort
made to get iermancnt lights
and at rates that will be equitable.
