You measure the comfort of your home by its convenience. In these days convenience is, in large part, a matter of electrical service, and the effectiveness of this service depends on the completeness of the wiring. Complete wiring is neither complicated nor expensive. If you are preparing to build a new home, you plan your plumbing as a unit and you make sure that it will be complete. At the same time and for the same reason, you will appreciate the economy of building electrical service into the structure as it is erected. On the other hand, if your present dwelling is not wired, or if it is inadequately wired—as most houses are—von will find the electrical contractor’s resources quite equal to supplying the deficiency and installing perfect electrical conveniences in the old home.
Complete wiring is nothing more than providing for all the electric lights for their proper control, and for the appliances that you or a future occupant of your house may some day want to use. The value of complete electrical convenience to a future owner is really its value to you—that is, he will be more likely to buy and to pay your price for a house that meets his electri convenience in the old home.
lf this house is going to be your home, you can realize perfect satisfaction only if you are able to make convenient use of electrical appliances—only as you can change the arrangement of the lamps and fixtures as often as you desire—only as you make electricity a servant who follows or precedes you from room to room, ready at every point to light your way and lighten your labor.
Complete wiring is the road to a hundred comforts. Electric heating devices—percolators, urns, toasters, grills and the like, are available on the porch or in the sun parlor in summer, in the dining room and living room at all times, and, when occasion requires, in the bed room and sick room. Electric fans supply cooling breezes and keep the air fresh and alive in any part of the house; electric heaters make cozy the cold corners in fall and winter, while electric curling irons, heating pads, and flatirons can be moved about and used at any convenient point.
There is, too, an undeniable prestige in complete wiring. The hostess whose home is imbued with the refinement of soft lifhts rightly placed, and controlled by the touch of a switch—who can offer her guests dainty dishes prepared in beautiful electrical heating devices—is one whom acquaintances love to visit and whose taste they admire even while they may entertain a little gool-natured envy as they appreciate the distinction of her surroundingsWestTexas UtilitiesTHE ABij*jyi.E..SERORIER-MfW.S

Radio Improver Milk.
LIBERTY. Mo., May 7.—Years ago. Arnold Schwartz was a dairyman in Switzerland. In the evening the milkers would perform to the accompaniment of yodeling and accordion music. Result, wonderful cheeses. Now that Schwartz is running a dairy here, he has Installed a radio in his cow lot. Music, he Bays, brings better milk. Market reports on the prices of corn, oats and hay also are music to the cows’ ears.
Not For Horses.
