M. Bragg, an elderly woman, sus tained a fractured shoulder and John W. Drayer and wife both received bruises and a severe shaking up and narrowly escaped more serious injury. Mrs. Bragg resides t 620 New York avenue. Mrs. Drayer is her daughter. J. W. Drayer and wife live nt Musko gee, Oklahoma, where Mr. Drayer Is chief clerk in the acounting depart ment of the Midland Valley railroad. They were called to Albuquerque by newB of the death of their little daugh ter, Marion Drayer, who was buried Monday afternoon at Fairvlew ceme tery.

INSTALLING W'OKK IS TEDIOUS Removal of Central Office Wll Not Take Place For a Month Yet. i he Colorado Telephone company has decided to add another building to its improvements on Fourth strtet be tween Railroad and TIJeras avenues The new buildlug will be a one-story I. rick 22x25 feet and will bo built di rectly in the reur of the new central building and will face tho alley. It will be used as a headquarters for the linemen and a store house. The new ctntral building which was completed u month ago, Is now filled with furniture and machinery but will not be ready for occupancy for tne en gineers and "hello" girls for a month yet. The installing of the switch board and the bringing of all the wires to It is quite a tedious Job and requires much time and patience. The machin ery and batteries, which occupy the busement, are all in place. The city office and the officials' office, which are to be found on the second floor, are still bare, but Mr. Graham, the manager, says that tho installing of the furniture for these places is easy when compared with the work that is being done on the second floor, where will be found the central office. The witch board being Installed will serve 1,600 phones and is arranged for the future growth of the system. With the moving into the new building, the common battery system will bo in stalled and the operating of it Is pretty as well as simple and productive of ! good results. With the common battery system the customer only has to removo the nceiver to get central. The sigual is known there by the lightning up of a tiny incandescent globo on the switch board. When the connection Is com pleted another little light, like the : first, signals it and when the phones are out of service the lights again tignal that fact. The rings, one ' two or three, as the occaslondemands I are made simply by moving a llttlo black lever as often as rings ure wanted. The central batteries are charged with liquid electricity and the battery power I furnished by the eleeine light company, but. should this latter fail, a gasoline engine has been pro vided to run a dynamo provided for the purpose. Every atom of tne equip" ment is new and should furnish Albu querque with a first class service. TO SPEND $4,000,000 ON HARRIMAN LINES Seattle, Wash., Nov. 7.
