It is cheaper than hiring d servant, and just as satisfactory. Electricity to cook an entire meal for six people costs pniy four cents. Just put the meal in the cooker end turn on the current. No flrther attention is needed. When you are ready to serve, the meat and the vegetables are perfectly cooked and steaming hot. The cooker- jug gives you this complete cooking ser-. vice for less than a penny a meal. It is dependable, convenient, cheap. Dependable, convenient, cheap ;:; that is the rule with electric appliances. A vacuum cleaner operates two hours for a penny. The radio plays an hour for one cent. A penny pays for four hours' use of an electric sewing machine. Electricity is your perpetual servant. It is always at your command. It iives behind the electric outlets in your home. It works for a pittance, it never asks for a raise or a day off, it is never sick or late to work, ' it eats nothing and its wages grow less as the hours grow longer. Let this modern servant do all it can-in your home. Electricity does the housework more easily, more quickly, and for less money than you can do it by hand; .a ELECTRICITY IS THE CHEAPEST THING YOU BUY Arkansas-Missouri Power Company CONSTANTLY^[MDERING COURTEOUS SERVICE
