relpphono Story by llie "Modern
ffliXTliXtfSS I The day had been hot, the even
way nuy luoro. Out strong and well. nrr was Sultry. Through the open
windows of a cosily furnished room
1 came the pungent odors of burning
I trash, which, mingling with the
faint perfumes of mint, and accom
panied by the melodious tinkle of
glasses in nu adjoining room,
seemed to provoke an inordinate
thirst and an almost insatiable de
sire for long, cooling drinks.
Iounging near a table, upon
which appeared sundry concoctions

whose personalities appeared to be

erally twinkled with fun and merriment.
The second was a journalist of
repute, whose lean frame and sallow
cheeks argued an impaired diges
tion, as the result of much burning
of the midnight oil.
The third was a short, rotund
little fellow, whose brown eyes
peered at you through a pair of gold
rimmed spectacles. His sober face
and thoughtful mien betokened a
love of books; and you could have
sworn that the word "truth" was
charly inscribed upon his broad,
white forehead, and that no indica
tions of prevarication, deceit or
dissimulation could be found in any
one of his sixty-four inches.
His conversation, however, gave
the lie direct, to his outward ap
pearance. It smacked of travel,
and indicated that his studies had
been of a desultory character, and
bespoke a contempt for things
sacred that was sad to witness in
one so young.
"Confound these telephones," ex
claims the Doctor, testily, after
answering several "calls" of an un
professional nature, "it seems to
me that people take a delight in
ringing one up for the purpose of
asking a lot of fool questions, in
the" answering of which there is
never a cent of money.
"Here boy, give us another round
of those mint juleps!"
"Yes, Doctor," says the Journal
ist, reflectively, "they are a vastly
irritating medium at times; es
pecially when you get a lot of copy
over the wire which proves to be
the most unreliable stuff imagin
able. But you must confess that
we are making great strides in the
way of long distance communica
tions. According to the latest
scientific gossip we shall soon be
able to dispense with "Central"
altogether, and everyone become a
'phone unto himself, able to hold
communion with his friends no
matter where they may be located.
I shouldn't be surprised if 'connec
tions' didn't extend to the upper

youth, calmly suckiug the cool

the telephones are all right! The
faults lie within yourselves, in that
you lack patience. As for your
theory of communication with the
upper and nether regions, why,
man, that is as old as the hills!

Doctor, you know very well that if

"Jaw-bones," quoth the Doctor,

to having attained any great degree
of proficiency in fact I am afraid
that I shall prove somewhat rusty

moment. By faith, gentlemen, and
the exercise of extreme patience, a
man may accomplish wondrous
things! If I fail in this, then the
soda water is on me."
Gulping down his fifth drink

by the journalist our would-be
