Electric power has been distributed more widely, and transportation facilities have been spread out to every nook and corner of the landscape. The spread of industry follows naturally—for industry needs power and transportation—and the industrial growth of the small town follows as'a consequence. The replacement of small power plants by efficient widespread transmission systems is one of the principal causes of industrial growtli in the smaller communities. .
