Shows America Far Ahead of Foreign Countries in Telephony. Forty-live years after the Invention of the telephone Europe lius only one telephone to each 100 of the popula tion, while the United States has nearly 13 telephones to ehch 100 In habitants. Two-thirds of the world'* telephones are in our country. Thla Is an Indication of the steadily grow ing demand for telephone service and of the success achieved in meeting that demand. The year ending December 31, 1921, was a year which on review shows good progress in the things consid ered most constructive: The new stock issue added materi ally to the strengtli of the financial structure. The ability to fill new applications for service, promptly, was more nearly approached. The quality of both exchange and toll service steadily improved. The efficiency of the whole operating force increased and is increasing. The development of the art of tele phony by research and invention, and by their application to the construc tion and operation of plant, was ex ceptionally noteworthy. While gross earnings did not in crease as might have been expected had business been normal, net earnings more than held their own. Efforts were increased and broad ened to bring about a better and more sympathetic understanding of our pol icies, problems and practices by .all of the elements muklng up the public served. * nu > «i uc i nrr vijjri i,) in (lie Bell System Companies is much in ex cess of the book figures and as a re sult the 5 per cent earned last year on the book cost of their plant en aided the American Telephone and Telegraph Company, due to the con servative finuneial structure of the System, to show 11.1 per cent earnings on its outstanding capital stock. The American people depend upon the Bell System for a nation-wide service of an intimate nature which must he improved and developed as l he discoveries in science permit and which must he extended to meet the requirements of a growing population and a growing use. The rates neces sary to provide for the mutual welfare of the public are, in tlie case of the Bell System, well within the limit permitted by law. Among the important matters cov ered in the report are the employees' stock purchase plan in which over 100,000 employees are interested; the development of the loud speaking tele phone system which, by means of the long-distance lines, carried the Armis tice Day exercises to thousands across the continent; the opening of the tele phone cable to Cuba; and the devel opment in radio telephony for public usefulness. During the past ten years, the in vestment in plant and equipment of the Bell System devoted to public service is shown to have Increased 100 per cent. The expansion of the telephone busi ness in tlie I'nited States has been enormously greater than the growth of population or general business. In twenty years the population lias in creased 4f> tier cent while the number of telephones has increased about 900 per cent. At the pnd of the your there were over 13,.'$80,000 owned iind connected stations in tlie Hell System, two-thirds of all the telephones in the world. During 1921, alone, the net gain in owned and connected telephones was 778.1184 and viewed from the stand point of the value of the service to user, this means that from each tele phone connected with the Hell System, it was possible at the end of 1921 to reach over three-quarters of a million more homes and places of business than at the beginning of the year. This remarkable growth in telephone business also bears eloquent witness of the worth of telephone service. American standards of service and equipment and the facts In respect to telephone plant and station develop ment afford substantial proof that the telephone service in the United States is the best and cheapest in the world. THE SONG OF THE WIRES By Mac, Engineering Department N. Y. Telephone Co. What is the song that the wires are singing, Out where the swallows and skylarks are winging? Over the mountain and over the plain. Then winding their way o'er the moun tains again. Now in the sunlight of crisp early morn, They bring us anthem of happiness born— Kissed by the sharp wind, a bow <>a the string, A ballad of Life and of Youth do they bring. And now they are singing a mournful refrain. Plucked in the night by a wind-driven rain. Now chanting a lullaby, gentle anil low. Strummed by the touch of the soft falling snow. Oh, What is the song that the wires are singing. Out where the swallows and skylarks are winging? Community Musical Has Fine Evening One of lilt* most successful forms of entertainment Riven in iliis borough in tlie high class of its lierfonners was the coinnmnit.v musieale Riven free to all at tlie Cliffside Park High School! on Saturday evening as a tilting close! to tlie music week celebration of New York and vicinity. The program opened with a phono graph solo, then a radio selection, and f after that the real, live artists ap peared. J. Carter Troop, president of tlie New York Lecturers' Association.) spoke on tlie subject of music, good ! and had, and tlie dangerous tendency of tile present music of tlie devil. I >r. Sigmund St net h, former music I editor of the Mail and Times and now head of the Ampico educational depart ment. spoke about the derivation of) popular music from classical music, and illustrated his remarks on the Am pico. Out of town artists included .1. Hel en Jeffry, the well-known violinist, who I played in her famous style, accompa nied in one group of selections liy Mr. Spencer of New York and in another by t lie Ampico piano. Sally Hamlin, another artist of wide spread fame, gave one of her excellent recitations and adapted it to a dance to the music of tlie Ampico, winning great applause. The local artists who took part were Mrs. Merrick of tJrnnfwood. who sang several numbers in her usual charming manner, and a string quartet, which made its tirst appearance this evening, receiving a great ovation for their tine performance, the members being Pro fessor Mirths, his son and Messrs. A! it I - taler and Yoka, who have come from Switzerland to reside in Cranlwood. This wonderful entertainment was made possible through the active co-op eration of the Ampico people from New York and their artists, with Mr. \V.

If you are starting with It, you should first prepare on paper a plan of the garden indicating the amount of space and location allotted to each vegetable, the proper date on which seed should be sown, the direction of the rows and width between rows. In general, the rows should run as close to a north and south line as Is practicable so that the sun will shine on each side of the row for part of the day. Plan so that tall growing vegetables will not shade the low-growing varie ties, and be sure to leave plenty of room between the rows to allow for later tillage. if you worked from a plan last year, arrange so that the space occupied by one variety lust senson will be given to a different kind this season. Root crops should be followed by leaf crops, etc. Short season crops, such as early beets, lettuce, etc., may be planted be tween crops which occupy the ground all season, such us corn and tomatoes. The short season crops mature early and are gathered before the all season crops need all the space A well thought out plan will save a great amount of time and work throughout the year. When your plan Is complete, the re quired amount of seed may be deter mined. The seed should be purchased early In order to insure the best selec tion. Buy front a reliable seedsman. Jt is very important that the soil ne finely pulverized to the full depth of the spading. While the garden is being dug. well rotted stable manure should he worked into tlie soil at the rate of a wagon loud to every 1‘JOO square feet. There is no danger of using 100 much. Professional market gardeners spread tnunure three or four inches deep on the surface before plowing it Into the soil. 11 JUKI flu 1 1 J.'i lira*,* application of fine coal aslios will prove very beneficial, since the ashes tend to loosen the soil, so that air may circulate. Ashes also tend to as-lst drainage and prevent evaporation. Finely ground limestone or air slaked lime applied at tlie rate of TOO pounds per 1000 square feet is also beneficial, especially on the heavy soils. The lime corrects soil acidity, and helps to change chemical condi tions so that the plant food will be come available for the use of plants. After tlie ground Is prepared, it is well to let it remain implanted for a week, or so, in order to allow tlie weed seeds in the soil to germinate. The surface may then be gone over with a sharp rake or hand cultivator, which will destroy the young weeds. A garden plot, well planned, and well prepared is the biggest factor in the success of the garden. Hear In mind that a small plot, well .-ared for, is far more productive than a large plot which cannot be properly cared for. Therefore, no more should be attempted than can be well done. TRAVELSACROSS CONTINENT WITH SPEED OF LIGHT But One-Fiftieth of a Second Re quired to Transmit the Spoken Word From New York to ’Frisco. Measurements mu<le by the I’.ell tel ephone engineers show that on an av erage about 1/3 of u second Is required for a telegraph sounder in San Fran cisco to operate after the key is closed In New York, although the Inltlul im pulse travels across the continent witli the speed of light. The propagation of telephone currents, on the other hand, is much more rapid. The trans continental circuits ure open wires and contain no loading coils and the current builds up in them almost In stantaneously so that the telephone messages ure transmitted across the continent In about one fiftieth of a second, or practlcully the speed of light, which is 180,000 miles a second. In loaded circuits, and especially In cable circuits, the telephone circuit builds up much more slowly. Along the surface of the conductor, the electric Impulses travel with the speed of light. The amount of cur rent, however, which is conducted by the surface layer of the wire is ex tremely minute and is not sufficient to operate a receiving Instrument. After the Initial impulse has trav eled over the surface of the wire, cur rent builds up both on the sur face and within the wire. The rate at which this growth of current oc curs on the surface of the wire de pends upon the so-called electrical characteristics of the circuit. The building up of current within the wire follows its growth on the surface by a short intervul of time which depends on the slate of the wire and the inetul of which it is made. After the current within the wire has built up to a certain effective value, it becomes large enough to op erate the receiving instrument. The delay, therefore, which occurs In the transmission of messages results not because the Initial current travels at a low speed, but because an appreciable length of time Is needed for It to build up to an effective value. Prehistoric Freight. When the cargo of a ship was un loaded recently at Portland. Ore., It was discovered that a certain portion, which was supposed to consist of walrus tusks, proved to he the Ivory tusks of the mastodon. Crafty Si berian natives had substituted these for the walrus Ivory which was or dered. The cheaters, however, cheat ed themselves, for In spite of its great age the substitute was well preserved and the large size of the tusks con sequently made them more valuable. i -- Windmill Without a Wheel. In South America there are to txi seen occasionally a type of windmill which is entirely without the big wind wheel which is such an essential fea ture of the power generators to !>• seen in this country. A pivoted sur face is balanced in such a way that the wdnd gets under It and raises It, and when it has thus I raveled to tint end of Its run Its angle Is changed and the wind brings it down again.
