They vill give hun dreds and hundreds- of dollars to the church or charity, but not spare a kind word to thejr neighbor next door or to the man who comes to collect a bill.

Ohio State Journal. -' , The Wonderful Telephone. ' , A telephone -conversation is an in stantaneous process. Sound, travels at the snail's pace of 1,100 'feet per sec ond, but the ' telephone message leaps over the wires at the rate of 56,000 miles per second. A "Hello"" traveling through the air at, the ordinary sound rate, if such a thing were possible, from New York to San Francisco would make the trip, in ' four hours. The faintest ''"Hello" into the Transmitter at New York strikes clear and distinct upon the ear of the receiver in San Francsco just ohe-flfteenth of a second later. A breath against a metal disk changes air waves' into electrical cur rents, and these, in less than the pro verbial twinkling' pi an eye, reproduce at the other end of the-line, more than 3,000 miles away, identical sound waves.
