FLATTSMOUTH - - NEBRASKA
From Wednesday's Dally
District Manager J. C. Kuykendall,
of the Nebraska Gas and I-.lectric
company, sent out notices yesterday
to all patrons of his company, an
nouncing a new scale of prices for
the gas and electric service, which he
savs means about ten per cent in
crease over present rates. The mini
mum charge has been increased from
f0 cents to $1.00.
The new rates will po into effect
immediately following September
meter readings, which usually take
place about the 20th to the 25th of
The company claims that it is im
possible for them to furnish the ser
vice for less than the new rate and
pay expenses of operation. Coal
coke and everything used in the
making of light and gas have taken
another big leap since the new
freight rates have gone in effect, and
they are either compelled to increase
or close down the plant.
Following is the new scale of rates.
Residence Lighting: Fifteen cents
per k. w. hour, with a minimum
charge of $1.00 per month. A dis
count of 10 will be allowed if the
account is more than $1.00 a month,
and paid on or before the 15th of
Commercial Lighting: From 1 k
w. to 50 k. w. per month, fifteen
cents per k. w.; from 50 k. w. to 100
k. w. per month, ten cents per k. w. ;
upwards of 200 k. w. per month
eight cents per k. w. A minimum
charge of $1.00 per month and a dis
count of 10 if the account is more
than $1.00 and paid before the 15th
of each month.
Power Rate: From 1 k. w. to 200
k. w. per month, eight and one-half
cents per k. w.; from 200 k. w. to
400 k. w. per month, seven cents
per k. w.; from S00 k. w. to 1,000 k
w. per month, five cents per k. w. ;
upwards of 1.000 k. w. per month
four cents per k. w. Minimum charge
of fifty cents per horsepower per
month. A discount of 10 will be
allowed if the account is more than
$1.00 and is paid before the 15th of
rrom 1 c. r. to 0.000 c. 1. per
month, $2.2o per 1,000 c. f. : from
5.000 c. f. to 10.000 c. f. per month
$2.05 per 1,000 c. f. ; upwards of
10.000 c. f. per month, $1.95 per
1.000 r. f.. with a minimum charge
of $1.00 per month. A iscount of 5
will be allowed if the account is
more than $1.00 and is paid before
the 15th of each month.
GRIN AND PAY IT
Some of our patrons, also consum
ers of both gas and electricity, have
come to us with the question. "What
are 011 going to do now?"
We feel that we are compelled to
do just as we have been doing for
the past three years with everything
else that has been sold and delivered
to us pay the price, if we '.an, and
when the time arrives that we can
not pay, quit using it.
We believe the light company has
the right to place a reasonable profit
on its services, but no one seems to
be sufficiently interested to take the
time to investigate their books for
the purpose of ascertaining whether
or not there might be an overcharge,
even though the company would wel
come such an investigation, so, as
we said before, there is nothing left
j for us to do but pay the price and
continue with both gas and electric
J light and power.
From Wednesday's Dally.
Last evening at the public library
building, the canipfire girls of the
"Kezhekone" order who have for
their guardian, Mrs. Harry Smith and 1
Ly the way she is one of the most -energetic
of workers for the girls
and looks after their welfare and the !
best interest of the camp in the most
approved manner, gave a meeting in ;
honor 01 their mothers, in wnlch the!
character of the program was denoted
a "ceremonial meeting." This was
verv interesting meeting and after
the conclusion of the same the entire
crowd was invited to the refreshment
parlors of Mr. Guy Morgan, where the
girls of the camp had prepared a
real treat and surprise for the moth
ers in the shape of a luncheon, hav
ing the balcony decorated witn tne
colors of the camp. The mothers
surprise and enjoyment was beyond
description and to say that all enjoy
ed the occasion to the limit would be
putting it rulidly.
PLAYS "TOM SAWYER;"
HAS OTHER AMBITIONS
From Wednesday's Dally.
You'd think a boy of twelve years
who is a featured player in a big mo
tion picture production like "Huckle
berry Finn" to be shown at the Par
mele Theater Friday and Saturday of
this week, would either be perfectly
satisfied or else have high ambitions
to rise In his profession. Young Gor
don Griffith, who has the role of Tom
Sawyer in this fine film version of
Mark Twain's immortal story, comes
under neither of these descriptions.
Since the age of seven, Master Grif
fith has been a screen actor and a
mighty successful one. Moreover,
both his parents are on the stage.
But Gordon has aspirations in oth
er directions. He intends to become
a civil engineer, and with this end
in view is saving every cent of mon
ey he earns and using every spare
moment in order that he may attend
Stanford University and get his C. E.
CLASH IN THE ALLEY
From Wednesday's Dally.
This morning, while the car of C.
E. Hartford, which he maintains tor
delivering coal and feed, was passing
through the alley south ot Main

hicle was greatly damaged, although
it seemed certain they would be as
thev came together.

This morning Mrs. V. Belohlavy
