Our decision lo withdraw from the selling and distribution of these articles! was made after due consideration, without the least coercion from (lie dealers,| and for a number of reasons, among 'which the following: may lie noted, si 1st. The original purpose for entering the merchandise field lias been nc-l 55 complished. This was to introduce -electric cooking and; water healing' to »irj J5J customers. How well this was done is attested by the fact that we now have ap-l == proximately 000 electric ranges and 825 electric Water heaters installed in Al-l =5 gona. We have proved that electricity is the cheapest, cleanest and safest nielli- 55 od of cooking and of heating water. . U . 2nd. In the past few years n great number of farm homes in oiir trade fer- 55 ritory have been connected to electric lines. All are potential users of electric] == ranges and water heaters. We were prohibited from'selling to them an our loss cal merchants were unable to stock such major appliances in the face of our I =5 competition. It. was, therefore, considered unfair both to our merchants and to | =5 our rural friends to remain in the merchandise business. =5 3rd.
