wonderful story of tho spreading use of
this great agency ot socialization In our
civilization the telephone. The Bell sys

02G a year ago, and only 675,415 no fur

ing over 22,200,000 connections or conver
sations daily, against 2,100,000 in 1895.
On tho llnancial side the system now
shows property value on tho books of
