No town ever grew to the proportions of a city without the efforts of a bunch of energetic citizens who had enough faith in its future to inspirt a like faith in others. This nucleous attracted people who came and joined in the expendi ture of human energy and a city was builded. Just as necessary to a community as human energy is electrical energy. The flash of signs, the hum of motors, the bright light so necessary business are dependent upon the electrical energy generated at the power house of the electric light company. Without this electrical energy human energy would be well-nigii use less, insofar as community building is concerned. Liberal has a live bunch of men contributing their human energy to the upbuilding of the city the Liberal Light, Ice & Power Co., is spending thousands of dollars creating more electrical energy to match their efforts. ' These two factoVs are helping in the growth of the town. The local light company is doing its part in building for the future. The management is in sympathy with every forward movement, anel desires the co-operation of the best interests of the city. We are striving to merit the confidence and friendship of the people of Liberal and shall ever endeavor to merit it. They're ml' Here Now!
