fe AuIiUsm It Has Pro ed to Be 1b
Sf any Kinds of Business.
A surprising feature of long distance
telephony is the remarkable amount of
business that can be crowded into a very
short conversation. The fact that the com
munication obtained is in actual conversa
tion at first hand between the persons
most directly interested in the matter
Under discussion is what renders the tele
phone so far superior to the telegraph for
ery many purposes. Question and an
swer are exchanged immediately without
the annoying delays incident to tele
graphic dispatches. Propositions can be
made and commented on, modified or re
jected in a manner quite impossible by
telegraph; in fact all the advantages of a
personal interview are obtained without
the expenditure of time and trouble in
volved in a journey.
Numerous instances could be given of
the number of business questions that can
be disposed of in a single talk over the wires
within the minimum time of five minutes.
Probably the best record is t hat where two
business men, one in New York and one in
Boston, discussed and settled four entirely
distinct affairs in one minute and a half.
Two of the matters dealt with involved
large sums of money, but the men were
able to lay their heads together, figur
atively speaking, so well, although liter
ally they were so far apart, that it took
them but a few seconds in each case to de
cide on what should be done. It can read
ily be imagined how many telegrams would
have been required to do the sanie amount
of business, leaving entirely aside the
question of time, which is so often of first
importance. Every day cases occur where
the long distance telephone enables busi
ness to be done that the telegraph cannot
aid, and where the only alternative would
be a long and expensive journey.
For instance, not long ago a New York
man was notified that his draft on a house
in a town far up in the interior of the state
bad been allowed to go to protest, and in
order to protect his interests he was on the
point of undertaking a journey that would
have kept him away from his office for
three days, when a friend advised him to
telephone to the bank that held his draft.
He did so immediately; the bank informed
htm of the state of affairs and recommend
ed a lawyer in the town to take the job in
hand. He had an interview by telephone
with the lawyer and gave him instructions
to proceed, and the same afternoon the
lawyer reported that he had got out an at
tachment and that the draft would be fully
covered. The time spent by the New York
man over the affair might have been an
hour, and the total expense was for three
conversations, one with the bank and two
with the lawyer, as against an absence
from town of two or three days and travel
ing expenses amounting to forty or fifty
The actual saving of time and money
is by no means the only recommendation
in favor of longdistance telephone commu
nication. Often it renders possible the
transaction of business which could be
done in no other way, and many a time a
five minute conversation pays for itself a
thousand fold. To manufacturers having
their head offices in. New York, branches
in other cities nud towns and factories
somewhere in the country the service has
become practically indispensable. The
periodical daily talks between the chief of
the firm and the manager of the factory or
branch of lice place all their affairs so thor
oughly in touch with each other that no
manufacturing concern that has once
udojited the service to its needs would be
without it for a single day were the cost
twice what it is.
Hankers, brokers and lawyers form an
other lare class of patrons, but it was
aiming the manufacturers that the long
distance telephone first "caught on," and
tliey have steadily availed themselves of it
from the time of its establishment as a
commercial means of communication.
An Interesting Story.
Here is a curiosity well worthy a place
in such works as Disraeli's "Curiosities of
Literature." It is a simplestory, of course,
but a wonder nevertheless, especially when
we consider the fact that it is entirely
made up of the titles of one author's works:
"Oliver Twist," who had some verv
"Hard Times in the Il.-tttlu of Life," and
having been "Waved from the Wreck of the
ItoUIcii Mary" by "Our Mutual Friend,"
"Nicholas Nickleby," had just finished
reading "A Tale of Two Cities" to "Mar
tin Chuzzlewit," during which time "The
Cricket Chirped Merrily on the Hearth,"
while "The Chimes" from an adjacent
steeple were heard, when "Seven Poor
Travelers" commenced to sing "A Christ
mas Carol." "linrnaby limine," who had
just arrived from "The Old Curiosity
Shop" with "Some Pictures from Italy"
and "Sketches by Iloz" to show to "Little
Dorrit," was busy with "The Pickwick
Papers," when "David Copperfield," who
was taking "Some American Notes," en
tered and informed the comiany that the
"Great Expectations" of "Donilwy and
Son" regarding "Mrs. Lirriper's Ix-gncy"
had not been realized. He also said tint lie
had seen "lloots" at the "Holly Tree Inn''
taking "Somebody's Luggage" to "Mrs.
Lirriper's Lodgings" in a street that is
"No Thoroughfare," opposite "Bleak
House." This latter named place is alio
thought to lie the same building in which
"The Haunted Man" gave "One of Dr.
Marigold's Prescriptions" to "An Uncom
mercial Traveler," the object being tocure
him of a mania brought on through brood
ing over "The Mystery of Edwin Drood."
Fourth Class PiMtollices and Tlieir Kents.
Of the presidential postofTices only a few
more than 5 per cent, are located in gov
ernment buildings; the rest all occupy
buildings lersed or rented by the govern
ment. It does seem an invidious distinc
tion to make the fourth class postmaster
liersoiially pay for quarters, fuel and lights,
when the salaried officials of all classes
pay for nothing of the sort. This is what
makes it especially desirable to have an
office where the jiostmaster is appointed
by the president lie may not get any more
money, but his running expenses are paid.
Kate Field's Washington.
It Made No LtlfTerence.
Seven or eight of them were talking in
the court house the other day about the
best position in which to sleep.
"1 lie on my face," said one.
"I lie on my back," said another.
"I lie on n.y left side," said a third, and
so on until it reached an old fellow writing
at a desk.
"It doesn't make any difference to me
how I lie," he said, without stopping hia
work; "I'm a lawyer." Detroit Free Press.

Many persons are unable to sleep on
their left side. The cause has long been
a puzzle to physicians. Metropolitan
capers speak with great interest of Dr.
Franklin Miles, the eminent Indiana
specialist in nervous and heart diseases,
who has proven that this habit arises
from a diseased heart. He has examined
and kept on record thousands of cases.
His New Heart Cure, a wonderful remedy,

An Undisputed Test of Merit
A medicine that has been a household
remedy for over 50 years and used in that
time by more than 150.000.000 persons
must have great merit. Such a medicine
is found in Brandretb's Pills. This fact
demonstrates the value of these pills bet
