BLYTHEVILLE, (AUK.) COURIER NEWS 0 News I Edited by j. O. FULLETITON J. L. DAMERON County Agricultural Agent, Ass't. County Agent Docs Many jobs Better .' Than Old Way and at : Slight Extra Cost . • Many ' farmers In North Mississippi county are anxious to secure electricity through rural electrification projects for their homes and -lor farm use. However, In nearly e,very case tlie question foremost in .their minds is, "How can I pay the monthly current bill!" "The answer Is "put the electricity , to wort,," states J. o. Fullerton, county agent. •Tl\e size nnd ty|» ot fnini will determine the electrical equipment that should be selected. Generally, the following pieces arc recommended for every farm; lighting, water 'pump, washing machine, Iron 'and radio. The electric refrigerator should be added as finances permit, and then small utility motors, feed grlndeii. irrigation equipment, wood saws, milking machines, etc., "the county agent was told bv , Elberl E.Karns, extension agibul- tural engineer, University- of Arkansas College of Agriculture Partners report that they use an average of 4 1-2 gallons "of kerosene per month for, lighting alone, or about. $1 per mo'nth for n very limited amount of lighting service. ".Harry, Gofortli, who lives near ' Payettevllle, irrigated one-half acre of fall potatoes that yielded 140 crates: Valued at $1.25 a cialc, Ills gross Income from the potatoes was more tlia'n $175. Ill addition to Irrigation purposes- an electric water pump protects the health c! the family by providing good sanitary facilities, drinking water, fire protection, and it also contributes to more economical livestock production, Mr Karns said.. * An 'electric washing machine wilt save $1 per month on soap, washboards and in decreased i\ear'on clothing,'beside saving a to 10 hours _ per week for tlie housewife. The electric Iron'will prolong the wearing life of- clothes because of Its uniform'•heat control.' : Many .farmers state that the operating cost of the ballery-lype radio Is about $15 per year, or $125 per month. Tlie electric radio eliminates the cost of new batteries and re-charging, In addition to saving nearly $25 on the first cost of the machine. The electric radio lias/a.tow current consumption. Judging from these figures,' the average farmer spends about $3.10 per month for> a' very limited amount of service,' whereas, ut'liig electricity-at prices, now avertable under.the Rural Electrification Ad- rninlnstration plan, the cost of operating, basic equipment, such as lighting,'water prnmx washing machine,'iron, and radio, would be about. - $3 per month,'Mr. Karns said. ' ' Electricity, costing $3, gives the fanner many tiroes as much service as he Is now getting from his present monthly' cash outlay, the engineer said.

' t One would expect thai, under such conditions, those who dared lo follow the Christian way would nil be Inherently pure and beautiful souls, beyond weakness and' beyond temptation; yet tlie picture of these early churehoa reveals much that was not Ideal. • . • * ,- . Here In our lesson, In, the Introduction to these letters, to .the seven churches, the symbolism of Llie book Is emphasized.-: - p . In Patmos, the writer tells ; us, lie was "In the Spirit on the Lord's day," when he heard behind him a great voice,- us of a trumped.. TJie.voice commanded him to ViTlte to the seven churches all that he could see, and as lie turned toward thp voice, lie saw seven golden candlesticks. One need not dwell, upon, other details of the image, and the writer became convinced that the Living Christ was speaking to him, and that the message cnina directly from Cod. first of all, In this message, Is Hie appeal to cast aside, all fear. The Living One has the keys of deatli and of'the-unseen world. ... The forces'of evil may destroy Hie bodies of men, but they cannot destroy tlie soul: 'In Ihc great struggle of good, and,- evil, the good will triumph, : for truth cannot be destroyed. • • •«';•.• In this world of the present day, new terror has laid hold of -whole masses of people.
