ON BASIS OF FOUR SHARES
Chicago, July 22. Announcement has

graph Co. already controls practically
all the Hell lines In the country.
Michigan State Telephone lias out

on which It now pays dividends at the'
rate of 7 per cent. It has also 12,285,
000 of 6 per cent preferred stock and
$8,666,000 of bonds. The common stock
Is quoted In tho local market around

In the matter of dividends the ex
change Is not quite so even. Five
shares of Michigan Telephone now
draw $35 a year In dividends, and four
shares of American Telephone only $32.
There has been considerable gossip,
however, of nn Increase In tho Amer
ican company's dividend rate.
The passing of the Michigan State
Telephone Co. to the control of the big
holding company is tho result of a long
series of negotiations. Tho Michigan
Telephone Co., which preceded the
present corporation, defaulted on Its
bond Interest In 1902. The physical
property was bought In at foreclosure
suit by N. W. Harris and his associates
in order to protect the bondholders, the
firm of N. W. Harris & Co. having
placed the original bonds. Then the
Michigan State Telephone Co. was
forced t take over the old company
and its business and franchises and the
old bondholders were given the privi
lege of taking the bonds or preferred
and common stocks of the new corpor
ation. Nearly all of them did and
they have realized a handsome profit
on the transaction. ,

From a system embracing the use
of less than 49.000 instruments the
Michigan State Telephone Co. has
grown to a system connecting with
nearly ISO.000 telephones, located in
every section throughout the state.

LECTURE GIVEN AT METHODIST
A large number of people were dis
appointed at tlit Methodist chautauqua
last evening In not hearing the lecture
of Kmest Wray Oneal. w hich had been
announced for tho evening. Mr. Oneal
arrived yesterday noon prepared to
give his lecture at 2:30 as had been
previously arranged. On being in
formed that his lecture had been nost.
poned until the evening in order to
give more people an opportunity to
hear him. Mr. Oneal told of another
engagement for fhe evening that ne
cessitated his taking tho afternoon
train. His lecture was therefore given
In tne afternoon.
Mr. Oneal appeared to a disadvan
tage as the audience had come to hear
a concert and not a lecture. His
theme was "Popular Fallacies," and ho
won the appreciation of all.
He based his talk tm the supposition
that all men were seeking success, and
spoke particularly to the youth In his
audience. Ho emphasized three falla
cies In particular: First, that success
could le attained without health or
proper physical development; second.
that success could be attained without
work: and third, that the goal of a
man's ambition could be reached with
out morality. Under each head he
gave several concrete examples and
also the exceptions to his argument, if
there wero any to give.
'To make a successful career with
out a proper physical development of
tho body." said Mr. Oneal, "Is like the
mounting of a Krupp gun on a frail
carriage." He spoke of the great care
exercised by tho ancient Egyptians In
regard to tho body, even after death.
Milton nnd Peetlmven were exceptions
to the convral rule of health, Milton
being hampered by his blindness, and
Hoethoven by his faulty hearing.
"The necessity of hard work In the
lives of siifcessful men and women Is
Illustrated by Kdison, who said. "Oen-
lous Is not Inspiration but perspira
tion." Genius 'was further defined ns
the result of hard work by Carlyle's.
saying, "Genius Ta concentration.
Under the division of morality, Mr.
Oneal said that success was getting In
to the rlht relations with other people.
and this can only be done by exercising
a due amount of morality.
In conclusion, reputation nnd char
acter were compared showing that ap
pearances do not always prove the
man. These lines contain the meat of
his closing remarks:
"Reputallon is seeming, ciiumvivr o
"Reputation is the photograph of the
man, character Is the face."
"Reputation shows the outside, char
acter the Inside" ,
Reputation will get a position, char
acter will enable us to retain it."
"Reputation Is what men say of us.
character Is what tho angels know."
Mr. Oneal Is a very rapid speaker
and held his hearers deeply interested.
