'Phe management of this company is desirous of supply
ing the best possible electric service, in addition to estab

tions with its patrons.
AVe expect and require all employes of this company to
render every consumer efficient service in the most prompt
and courteous manner, and for the future improvement
of the service we request any patron who does not get the
best possible service from an employe to mail a report of
the circumstances to the nearest Division Superintendent

for any defective service.
'Phe compam further strives to give all present or pros
