A SERVICE WORTH
Here is what we me&nt when we alluded to "Request
Maintenance" as pertaining to your home
It is little more than reminding you to form the habit
of notifying us when you are not securing complete sat
isfaction from any of your gas lamps.
We have skilled men assigned solely to this work
They will inspect your lamps, adjust them and, wher.
they find that a new mantle is necessary or any part o'
the lamp needs renewal, they will charge you for these at
the regular retail prices the same that you would pay
for standard goods in any store or at our office. The re
newals will be made only after your approval.
The service costs you nothing.
