You may have an idea that wiring
your home for electric light means
tearing up the premises and will cost
a great deal. This impression is wrong.
Electric contractors have improved
their methods very much during the
last few years.
Improved methods cause wiving in time, labor and ma
terial less cost to the house owner.
Local electric contractors und pur company are pulling
together in the effort to make thia city one of the best
lighted in the state.
The merit of Electric Light is strong enough to make
its own way, if you give it half n chance.
