II. C. WOODHURST, d9J2 CoUnty Judgo I The Unkind Razor A razor that "chews" instead of shaves is not likely to make a good impression on the victim. You simply can not get a good shave with a dull blade. Neither can you get satisfactory telephone service from a poorly equipped and operated telephone company. But what can the telephone company do if it lacks funds to meet expenses ? You can't expect capable men and girls to work for any concern which is unable to pay them fair .wages. And you know by experience that what stood for fair wages two or three years ago will not meet expenses today. Telephone wages and upkeep must be taken care of by tho people who use the telephone. That is certainly reasonable. So it is plain that the service you get can be no better than that for which you pay. In other words tho rate you give tho telephone also decides what the telephone can givo you. NEBRASKA TELEPHONE COMPANY
