DON'T blame you for looking so dumfounded, Mr. Franklin. There's been a lot happening in this country since you left us 151 years ago. As you can see, some very able inventors took up where you left off. I'll" bet the biggest surprise to you is 'the stride elecirieity has ma de-^ifen«nber your experiment with the kite and the key? Weil, sir, electricity stayed just about where you left it in 1790 untU nearlyahundredyeara later when Edison came along, and things started to happen. He gave us the electric light, Mr. Franklin, and then other inventors developed electric .. paver and heat. It would take all the space in this newspaper to-tell yon about'those marvels. Now factories are run by electricity; we have a wonderful invention called radio that brings us voices, music and entertainment out of the air; we wash, iron.and clean by electricity. Remember the stove you invented? Now we have electric stoves. And here is something about electric service that will please your thrifty soul: electricity is within the reach of everybody because it's so cheap. What's more, the rates are being reduced all the time. For example, during the last 10 to 15 years the average rate for household electricity ha8 been cut about in half. Today folks get about twice as much electricity as they got 10 to 15 years ago for the same money. Why? Because of efficient business management of the electric companies. And while the rates under business management are going down, the service is getting better and better. We Americans appreciate these things, Mr. Franklin. We know a good thing when we see it. And we're grateful to you, or, for the work you. did in electricity! Lake Superior District Power Co.
