Her parents, of course. And they had the help of hundreds of other people—men and women that Mary's parents don't even know. These people helped Mother take the cake and cook the party food. They helped freeze the ice cream, sew Mary's dress, and wash and iron it. They helped heat, light and clean the house for the party. These busy people are the men and women who supply electric service for Mary's house. It's hard to imagine life without the electricity they provide-for everyone depends on electricity for dozens of johs all over the house. If you stop to count all the ways you put electricity to work, you'll be surprised. Can you think of anything else that gives so much value, day in and day out, for so little cost?
