To help turn the great wheels of industry,
there is perhaps no single instrument" that com
pares with the telephone.
The telephone keeps the factory in constant
touch with the jobbing house, with the homes of
its employees and officials, and with distant
cities,, towns and villages.
Of all modern conveniences for saving time and
effort, none perhaps is worth, as much for the money
spent as is your telephone.

T'HE MILLIONS whose hearts were touched by
the story of "Tess of the Storm Country!' or who
were equally affected by the sweet, pathetic little
heroine as acted on die screen by Mary Pickford, will be
chatmed by this new tale of the squatter folic who once
lived on Lake Cayuga, a few miles outside of Ithaca, N.Y.
Polly herself, crude and untaught, but beautiful in face
and fine in spirit, is an adorable heroine, loyal through
thick and thin, tempestuous at times when heranger
is aroused by wrong or injustice, but tenderness itself
to all weak and helpless creatures.
The situations in "Storm Country Polly" are tensely
emotional, skillfully portrayed and adroitly handled,
and the reader's sympathy with Polly and her people
never lapses from start to finish.
