Helps the Farmer to Sell
THE FARMER was worried over the market
reports. Cotton was rising. When it reached
a certain figure he proposed to sell. The day
before it had almost reached his price. What
would it bring today?
The farmer needed first-hand information at once. He
stepped to his Bell Telephone. The Long Distance connection
with the buyer in a distant city informed him that cotton had
reached the top figure, and he sold his crop at a handsome profit
The Universal Bell System enables the producer in remote
rural districts to keep in touch with market conditions without
the necessity of leaving home.
By the way, have you a Bell Telephone?
