STORY OF THE FIRST TRIAL,
A Lack of Tape Caused Alonzo B. Cor.

Morse Code by Ear-The Ciscovery
That Abolished the Use of the '1 ape.
Ezra Cornell is known In hLtory t
the father of Cornell univerIty, a.

Yet ie once confessed to me that be
felt IIe should be credited with the
additonal lhenor of havi:: made the
discovery that telegraph messages
could be read by ear. and le seemed
to take more pride In his part In bring
Ing this abnut than he did in any of
his other achIevements.
"I was trained as a telegraph opera
tor." said Mr. Cornell In telling me the
story. "I suppose I took to telegraphy
naturally because of my father's deep
and large Interests In the then new
mode of cotmunication. Anyway. I
learned the Morse key easily. and I
was. in fact. very fond of telegraphing
from both the practical and the scien
"One afternoon. sometime in the ear
ly eaftie%.wben I was stationed at Al
bany. N. Y., there was an unusual in
rush of newspaper dispatches-I was
In charge of the press key-and in the
midst of the task of recelving them I
found to my consternation that I was
out of tape. Before taking my seat
before the key I had neglected to re
pl.enlsh the tape reel.
"There was a bountiful supply of
tape in the cellar of the building. but
"it was a long trip there-there were
no elevators in those days-and I knew
that to go there I would waste pre
clous time. And there were those anx
I ous newspaper men hanging over my
"Suddenly. as I fished about mental
ly for the quickest way out of my
dilemma. this thought popped Into my
head: 'You don't need any tape. Half
the tizc you don't look at It when the
dispatches are coming In before you
write them out. You trust to your
ears to teI what the Instrument say',.
Why not do so nowY !nststiy I dd
termied to see whether o not I cld
Ike the dipathes by sound alose.
"I put my fingers on the key and
broke In on New York. whence the
dispatches were coming. 'Send rather
slowly- and very distinctly.' I asked the
Sman at the other end of the wir. ie
at once bega.n to do so-not without
some curiosity as to my reason. I
found out later.
"But I didn't think of that at the
time, for I was glowing all over with
,the knowledge that I could write out
the dispatches-and write them cor
rectly, for they made sense-by simply
listening to the sounds that the key
"Thus 1 continued taking the dis.-'
patches to the very end. Then the
New York operator called me. -what
[are you doing up therey he asked.
Thby did you want me to send slowly
"I answered that I h-xd said goodby
to the telegraphb tape forever a~nd told
im of the discovery I had made. IIe
was immediately Interested. -Send
me slowly and very distinctly Efteen
or twenty words. and i'll see whether
or netI I cat do the same thing,' he re
"I did so, full of contidence. and a
little later there came to me this mes
sage: 'Ive done It too. Some of the
other boys say they can. I predict
that within a month there won't be an
inch of tape used in tbe New York
"Years later," added Mr. Cornell. "1
was told that about the timea that 1
Idiscovered for myself a new and revo
lutionary method of receiving tele
graph messages the same method was
also discovered by an operator in the
min oflice In Pittsburg. I have no
doubt that this Is true. Sooner or
later the discovery was bound to be
made not only ir. one, but several
ofices. But I have always felt that I
was the first to make the discovery
and should be credited with It in tele
graph~c history."-Bostonl Globe.
