Alexander Graham Bell and the tele
phone have lieen synonymous terms for a
dozen years or more. Bell's career present-
one of the most remarkable Monte Christo
romance in this country of rapid fortune
making. Hell was a penniless boy in Edin
burgh thirty years ago. He came to this
country in lt'2and finally became a teacher

had been an undercurrent of thought with
him, and he has frequently said that long
before 1870 we would one day speak by
telegraph. The telephone was the result
of years of patient labor and investigation.
