-Sentinels on the Wire
In your homo, on tne Avail, hid
den aAvay in an unnoticed place
is a rather dusty black metal
box. Times a plenty you've
looked into it and perhaps no
ticed six or eight white and
brass plugs to which are at
tached elctric wires. Surely
nothing could be less romatic
or interesting than these plugs.
Yet thoy are each a silent sen
tinel always alert guarding
electric wires from family care
lessness. Back in the local
power station where the elec
tric current is matte are more
silent sentinels. Uninterrupted
Service depends upon coopera
tion between company and
consumer all along the Tne.
If the consumer uses too ninny
electrical appliances on one
wire, an "overload" occurs and
the sentinel the fuse warns
you. T.t puts the home lights
out, thus preventing other and
more dangerous electrical ,
trouble. A now fuse replacing
tho one that has burnt out
mends tho trouble unless, of
course, tho overloading again
occurs. Don't overload tho
wires. Here at the power plant
we aro trying to make our ser
vice to you uninterrupted. Help
