a timely note of warning in the
Sentinel-Journal, andlwhich our
citizens should read and heed.
When properly controlled elec
tricity is one of our greatest mod
ern utilities; but when taompered
with by unskilled men is both a
menace and danger. A mnispla
ced wire may .cause the loss of
your building or perhaps a more
extended conflagration. Do not
trust your work to any hobo so
called "electrician," 'but give
such canvasters a cold potatoe
and call your,yai'd dog. To se
cure connections and safe and
satisfactory. service yeu must
first consult the Atlantic Electric
Co., that is putting in this plant
and therefore responsible for its
successful and satisfactory oper
