r BUT WE INVITE r r
* * AN INVESTIGATION • •
Suppose you have an eight-room house, make a liberal use
of electric light, operate a radio, a vacuum sweeper, and
an average number of table appliances, and that your
electric service bill together with your cooking bill amounts
to an average of $13.10 per month. Os course, if your
average for that service is more than the amount men
tioned you can get “something for nothing" and pocket a
cash savings in addition. Bear in mind that $13.10 is an
example and that a larger number of residents are paying
that amount for the above service and that it can be had
for considerably less.
It 9 s Possible To Get This Epr
The Same Money
Provided you change to an Electric Range: and operate it
on our combination rate the same amoifnt of cooking may
be done, the same amount of lighting -may be had, tha
same use may be made of your radio, vacuum sweeper and
table appliances,- AlsD IN ADDITION ip Electric Refrig
erator may be operated, ail for an ajnount not to exceed
$13.10. The energy necessary to furnish refrigeration is
the “something for nothing.” Combination rate customers
in every town we serve are showing a savings. It is pos
sible that you may be benefitted. If not we'll be honest
enough to say “No.” Investigate it!
