Telephone parronafre ought, according to all laws of business, to beget
a serrice in the widest sense popular, on i form and cheap?
Hardly. On the contrary New Yorkers have continued to put
op witfc a complicated system of zones and tolls, have gone on paying
ton oenti to telephone lo points where thev can ride in a trolley ear
for five cents. And when the telephone monopoly takes down a
trifling bar somewhere with a frreat flourish the ptiblic is expected to

HOW OFTEN ia pleaaure at theatre or concert in New York

to hear himself inatead of the performance.
Hare you noticed the increasing number of people who think it
mart to thow their detachment by talking when others are listening?
Have yon noticed that the man who "haa heard the piece before"

tunes for the torment of those in hie Ticinity?
Have you noiced that eteaKhy, continued whispering in a theatre
