A reporter who was wondering, as
many other people" are wondering, no
doubt, if tbe long distance telephone cir
cuits are much used, and if so by what
clam of people and for what purposes,
called to ask those questions of Edward
P. Meany, assistant general manager of
tbe company, ia the main office, at 18
CorUandt street. -
"Yes," said Mr. Meaney, tbe long
distance service ia used to such a satis
factory extent that it is being constantly
extended. In th far western part of
our territory Milwaukee has been added
to the system, and this side of Chicago a
line ha recently .been run down from
Toledo to Daytoh O., aud from Dayton

Mr. Meaney esplaiued that the charges
for lorn; distance interviews are based
upon five minutes' conversation as a
unit. TLat is. the charge between Xew
York and Washington is !, between
New York uud Chicago $9, fur each five
minutes or portiou of that time. This
does not iuclndo the time used in mark
ing the connection or bringing the par
ties to the ends of the line. All sub
scribers to the long distance telephone
caa be connected with the circuits just
ss they ere iu the litcul business. If a
man is wanted who. t not a subscriber
to the long distance t rvice, ho is hunted

When two people get fairly started on
a long distance interview, they cau talk
from 400 to (KM) words in five minute,
according to the subject and their famil
iarity with iu It is a fact that most in
terviews end liefore the unit of time has
elapsed. One Xew Yerk woman who
bad ber son at South Bend, Ind., where
be is at school, called up anxiously, asked
ber startled hopeful if she bad put his
winter flannels in bis trunk, if he had
not maliciously carried off his fathea's
razor and if his tooth bad stopped ach
ing. Being satisfactorily answered on
all these toinLi, she paid for the service
and went on ber way rejoicing.
Business men chiefly tr the long dis
tance service to consult about terms of
contracts or to reort the text of con
tracts which uirst be repeated to insure
Tbe chief difference between the long
distance and the short circuits is that in
the former what Li called a metallic serv
ice is ued that is, in talking between
New York and Chicago, a dista:ice of
1 .000 miles, the service is really over 2.0UU
miles of wire, as the wire, instead of be
ing grounded at both ends to complete
the circuit, is doubled or looped to make
tbe complete circuit metallic. The in
structions for speaking and listening are
the same as those printed for tbe use of
tbe ordinary telephone, and the result,
so far as bearing is concerned, is rather
better over a thousand miles than over
one. This is owing to the metallic cir
cuit, which does away with tbe madden
ing burr-r-r resulting from induction
and from the me of a heavier and su
perior copper wire. The wire used in
the long distance service weighs 870
r rands a mile, tbe ordinary service wire
eighing but 340 pounds.
Mr. Meaney said that while tbere was
ao mechanical reason why tbe service
should not be continued across the con
tinent, it to not probable that, for tbe
present at least, it will go beyond tbe
Mississippi river, owing to tbe great cost
of construction, operating and mainte
nance expenses. When these facts had
been given to tbe reporter, Mr. Meaney
asked if a chat with Chicago would aot
aid an understanding of th subject. The
reporter thought it might, and Mr. Mea
ney drew toward him a movable stand
ard telephone instrument and called up
Chicago. That active city quickly re
sponded, aad tba telephone was turned
over to the reporter. The thoumnd-mile-away
voice began ia a clear "gTg

' The residents in and around Burn
post office, in tlte. county of Hiek.t;i.
Tern., are greatly wrought tap over tiie
appearance in broad daylight of an. n;
paritioa. The following is a state::. r: t
made by Mr. Terrell, a prominent fai iaer.
who saw the strange spectacle, aud it is
reliably vouched for:
"1 have visited the hauuted spot and
seen tbe ghost. Tbe place where the
apparition is most frequently seen is iu
a sag just beyond the noted McXairy cut,
about a mile east cf Burns station, on
the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis
railroad. It was in tlte forenoon when
I approached the spot, walkiug quietly,
and concealed myself where I could h i ve
a good view of the headlems mystery
should it materialize. I had not long to
wait until the apparition made itsajt
pearance, and I know that I was not the
least excited when I saw the ghost mov
ing along the railroad track about 2(H)
yards distant. It did not seem to move
with any object iu view, nor did it ap
parently make any progress in its travel,
yet it looked to be moving all the time.
It was in the form of a large, chubby
mm and it was plainly to be seen
that the object bad no head. Aside
from this it appeared to be a per
fect man. Taking my tourist glasses
front my jtocket the headless monster
was apparently within ten feet of me.
A thrill of terror crept over me as 1
beheld it moving aimlessly about, a
man without a head. The llteding
neck appeared as if it had been severed
with . a sword, while the arteries and
viens constantly blullered and spurted
blood-stained foam. 4 removed the
glasses and the ghost was where I first
saw it. I turned to flee, but hesitated,
and then determined to go to it. As 1
approached it neither came forward nor
retreated. It vanished completely. I
returned to tiiy first place and saw it as
before. Then several men ciuuu up the
track and 1 lieari their stwry unmixed
whh my own and it corresponds with
mine. They had swn the object also.
" I do not lielieve that any living mor
tal can explain the presence of this
mysterious human body. McXairy cut
lias iavn haunted for years. It was
here that during the late war the noted
bushwhacker McXairy committed many
bliiody deeds. Two trains collided here,
and the engineer, named Johnson, was
caugut between the engine and bis
body cut from his legs, and lifted from
a roasting pyre to die. It was here
1m that an unknown negros-as mur
dered a short while ago.
" I confess I do not believe in ghosts
but it may lie that away down in the
silent depths of nature, where murtality
ceases and immortality begin-t, there is
a power that reflects back to mother
earth the image of the deeds that have
angered aud defied the justice loving
Ood of the universe."
