If you are prompt in payments, getting the money to tho com(>any within flfieen daya, you will get a discount of ten centa a thousand. The new ached uie will take effect on or about January 20. Tlie deciaion of the commlaalon Is looked upon aa a pracUcal victory for the gas company. The oompany a<^'- eral montha ago flled a tariff of $1.75, which .waa a 25 cent Increase over the old rate. The peoplo of this community, through the Chamber of Commerce, tbe village boards and the town board, fought the new schedule and obtained court injunctlona prevenUng their be¬ ing put Into effect until a hearing ahould be held before the public servU-e com¬ mlaalon.
