OPENING? A NEW QUESTION.
Doea the Telephone, as Uaod, Save
Time or Waste ItP
There is a general doubt whether
tho telephone has really evor saved
auy net amount of men's titno, says
tho Now York Mail and Expross.
Perhaps to-day one may save him
self half a day's journey by tho use
of tho telephono; and perhaps to
morrow someone wastes half an hour
of his time by calling him needlessly
over the instrument, aud next day
someono wastes another half hour,
and so on until tho saved half day is
put ovor onto tho other side of the
account. Thero is a class of people
who are in a special way tho victims
of tho telephoue. They haven't one
at their elbow, nor a cheaply-paid
employo to answer calls for them.
They are within calling distanco aud
no one hesitates to call them over
Imagine yoursolf ono of these
people. You are actively at work
in your room, developing a line of
thought that has just come to you,
aud may not come attain. Sonio one
come iu aud says: "You're wanted
at the telephone Boston, 6109."
You throw down your pen. Shall
you answer tho call? You don't
want to, but after reflection that
perhaps It may bo something im
portant to somobody, you get up
and go a long way, and after sotno
fire minutes' waiting for some one
to get out of the telephone closet
you are admitted. "Hello, Tromont
hollo, Tromont -hello, Tromontl"
Total silence of Tromont. You ring
again. "What number, ploaset''
snappishly from Tromont. "Boston,
unrj." Auotlior long silence, which
never has any explanation, but after
another call or two you get this
answer: "GUl'.t's busy." So you hang
up tho instrument and go outside
and wait fivo minutes.
And then vou resutuo vour olain-
tivo petitions to Tromont to listen
to you; aud perhaps after ten min
utes more you get No. GIIK), and you
find out tlien that Perk in son jurt
thought he'd ask you what kind of a
flower it is that goes to seed iu Nov
ember and has a kind of button on
top: he doesn't remember what kind
of leaves it has aud never thought
of noticing what kind of a place it
grows iu, nut he know that of course
you'd know the moment you heard
of it. Then you tell him that you
don't know, and discuss tho weather
and his family's health with him,
aud give him a sad, sad good by
aud go back to your room and see
by your watch that you'vo lost ox
artly half an hour. Then you try
to get to work again, aud can't make
it go to save your life. It is quite
useless. You put on your hat and
overcoat and go down town to paw
over the books ou. tho counters of
the book stores aud try to get eh cor
ed up. Ah! the telephone is a great
invention for saving timet
