Much water has gone, over ns, well as under the bridge since Old Ben .Fniiikliji first conceived the idea of controlling electricity for. the progress of the commercial world and Cor the comforts of miiii. He woiiktn't believe hiS> own eyes if he could return today and see what his kite-flying has come to. He wouldn't believe the homes in the small towns (much less in the large cities) are so comfortable with conveniences as they are today. He wouldn't believe his eyes when he looked, at the soft, pretty indirect-lighting facilities in the home; he: wouldn't believe his own ears wlien he listened to the radio; and he probably wouldn't believe his own taste when he ate food cooked upon a modern electric range. j THESE WHISKIES ABE 2VS>TEflBSOLB 30 PROOF Get Ready for Spring Cleaning Nor would any person, who lived oven bO years ago,' lielieve thai someday —today!—Hie farm homes and farm buildings would also enjoy the benefits of electricity. Wouldn't Old Ben be surprised to \VHIK into s "barn, some early evening at twilight and see electricity burning in egg-shaped glass bulbs providing light while electric milkers-wore taking milk from a herd of cows? Who wouldn't be .surprised! While it isn't surprising today to see these things on the farm, it is still interesting.
