I)articularlv so, when light c()sts so little. Ten cents won't buy much food or coal or clothing, or pay much rent. But it will buy enough electric current to burn every light in an average house-- from cellar to attic--for an hour. To be more specific: a 75-watt Mazda Lamp gives two and a half times as much light as a 40-watt Mazda Lamp. Yet the difference in current cost averages less than a third of a cent an hour. Use light freely--but use it right. Every lighting socket in your home requires a particular type and size (wattage) of Mazda Lamp to give the best lighting effect. We will be glad to assist you in getting the right lamp for Vour fixtures. You'll find your comfort increased immenseh-- but your expense scarcely at all.
