to Brooklyn, to conduct a series
of meetings for Dr. Talmage,
New York's great divine. When
Sam arrived and reported to Dr.
. Talmage, that gentleman was
somewhat taken aback wi'th the
rather seedy-looking suit of
clothes that Sam wore, and so
troubled did lie become over the
Georgia minister's dress that he
finally said to him; "Mr. Jones,
would you accept. a suit of
a clothes from me?" "Why, cer
tainly," said Mr. Jones, smiling,
and so Dr. T. accompanied him
to a haberdasher, where he was
clothed from head to foot in a
very stylish suit, topped off with
a high silk hat.
That night Dr. Talmage took
his newly-dressed evanelit to
his cromwded. talernacle, and

Daily Weather Reports.
Through an arrangement per
fected between the United States
Weather Bureau and the South
ern Bell Telephone Co., more
than 25,000 Southern farmers
will receive the daily weather
reports by telephone. This plan
went into effect July 1st.
The daily weather reports will
bo furnished the telephone com
pany by the Weather Bureau,
and the report will be read to
the farmers by telephone operat
ors. At a given hour each day
a general alarm will be sounded,
calling every farmer to the tele
phone. When they are all as
sembled the report will be read.
Any farmer who is not able to
answer the signal and hear the
report has the privilege of call
ing the operator and securing
Almost every farmer's tele
phone line connected with the
Bell system has six or more sub
scribers, and by reading the re
port to each line the work can
be speedily accomplished.
This is the fiist comprehensive
ani systemati'c effort to furnish
this inlforimnation withliolt cost to
the fariers of the South. The
spread of the tolophone in the
rural districts in the past few
years has made it possi ble to
reach such a large numbe of
farmers through the Bell sys
tei, and the dissemination of
the weather news by telephone
is one of the many practical uses
for the telenhone on the farni.
The territory of the Southern
Bell Co. covers the states of
North and South Carolina,
Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Vir
ginia and the southern half of
