Regular Payment of
Dividends Honestly Earned
The 6,000 home shareholcbrs of Northern States Power Com
pany have recently received their quarterly dividend checks on the
Preferred Stock, this being the thirty-fith consecutive quarterly divi
dend regularly paid over a period of nearly ten years.
These dividends have been earned by the money of the
shareholders invested in permane.it, physical properties engaged in
useful and essential pyblic service, highly necessary in peace and in
dispensable in war.
Rate adjustments in the 200 cities and towns served by the
Company have helped the organization to meet the changed price
levels caused by the war, and to maintain the properties in the state
of efficiency urgently requested by the Federal Government as an
important factor in the war streng of the Nation.
The Company delayed the -e rate adjustments much longer
than most other lines of business aid has kept the percentage of in
crease down much smaller than ttn advance in nearly all commodi
ties, manufactured articles and services.
Having withstood the mos%orQi*£ tests imposed by the con
ditions of the past few years, the 7% Preferred Stock of Northern
States Power Company is in constantly increasing demand as a thor
oughly dependable investment.
Our great family of profii sharing partners continues to
grow steadily. More shareholders have been added in 1918 than
during any previous year.
