Less than five one-hundredlhs of a cent, or less than five cents a month, assuming you're satisfied to clean up three times a day. You can get all the water you require for a bath, poured right into the tub for approximately a penny, and a shower will cost you even less. The bill for flushing a toilet runs about two-tenths of a cent. Go out and water your garden. Give it a good hour's soaking. Then count the cost. It may set you back a dime. Add all these costs up: allow for the water used for drinking and cofee making and cooking, include laundry and household cleaning requirements, and then consider how you'd go about meeting your water needs if you didn't have a public supply system. Suppose you want to keep that garden verdant and blooming. You've been pouring some 300 gallons an hour on it at a cost of ten cents or so. Pumping and carrying the same amount of water would take at least six hours. Even if you could get one of the neighbors' youngsters to work for fifty cents an hour (in itself quite unlikely these days), you would have to spend ninety dollars a month for the service. Compute any of your other water uses on the same basis and try to think of any other commodity which is delivered to you, guaranteed ready to consume or employ, at a comparable price! The important thing about your water bill is not the charges 11 records, but th» savings it doesn't mention. Blytheville Water Co. "Watit It Your Cheapest Commodity" Hudson's Sale Continues!
