Author, Soldier, and Cowboy
All Rolled In One.
HAS HAD MANY ADVENTURES
Texan Here With Yeterans Could

v. o Wvnn. better known west of
the Mississippi as "Windy Bill." Is an
author, biographer, publisher, soiaier,
pntrhnr. nd has fouitht Kansas Jay-
hawkers. Texas Indians and Indiana
Yankees.
H. I In Washington with the Texas
delegation of veterans and can tell
you enough about his life, wnlcn
started back In Marlon county, Ten
nessee. In the dark days of 186.
when that State waa still the frontier
and was known as the West, to fill a
much larger volume than he haa al
ready compiled.
Tea sir, "winay ant is u umw,
and the title of his work Is. "The
Life of an Old Confederate Soldier,
also Three Tears as a Cowboy on the
Frontier of Texas." "Windy Bill"
said the book was published at a
large expense, the Illustrations, which
he bad nxed up down In Dallas, cost
ing 70.
"Windy sn Faithful Horse.
One shows "Windy" riding on his
faithful steed, "Blue Hornet," with a
pack of Indians chasing him for dear
life. Another shows him making his
escape from the Rock Island, 111.,
prison. A score of others, depict the
wonderful adventures of the Texan.
"Windy" carries a little khaki sack.
slung around his shoulder. In which
he keeps a limited supply of the pre
cious volumes, which he gladly turns
over to any United States cltixen for
half a dollar. Up at the station be
haa a whole trunk full, and he Is
confident he will empty It before the
Capital fades from his view.
During the Civil War. "Windy" was
In the Tenth Texas Infantry, Com
pany c. He waa captured, made his
escape, and walked 2,000 miles to get
to his command at Atlanta. Ga. He
fought under General Bragg. Joe
Jackson and General Hood, and was
right behind CoL Pat Cleburn when
he fell at the battle of Franklin.
Xo Other Book Like It,
The business of "Windy Bill." since
the publication of hla own biography
in January, haa been very flourish
ing. This is the first time the volume
has .been seen eaat or the Mississippi.
"Windy" said regarding his book:
"Tou can't compare any other book
of Its kind with It. A Slow Train
Through Arkansas' or 'Peck's Bad
Boy can't rival It. My book (and
ask anybody that haa bought one) la
really a worth-while volume. My
friends tell me first they laugh and
then they cry when they read It.
"I've been ao hoarse since I've been
here that I haven't maoe any of my
famoua speeches, but when I start I
sell forty books a minute."

Chart ikoanng Increase in Daily Toll and Long Distance Mcnagu
MAY
1 HIS chart shows graphically how the volume of out-of-town
telephone messages from Washington is increasing. The number
of messages is now double what it was a year ago. The volume
of incoming messages to Washington is increasing in the same
way. It has been possible to handle this increase only by large
additions to our operating force, a practical doubling of the
capacity of our toll and long distance switchboards, and the pro
vision of many additional wires between Washington and other
cities.
Still further additions to the toll and long distance facilities
are being provided, the most important single feature being the
laying of additional cables between Washington and New York
at an estimate cost of one and a half million dollars.
While the average daily volume of out-of-town messages is
rapidly increasing, the fluctuations in the traffic from day to day
and hour to hour are becoming more marked than ever before.
This accounts, in large measure, for our inability to complete
long distance calls in the usual time on some especially busy days.
Every resource of this Company and of the whole Bell System
is being called upon in furnishing a prompt and effective long
distance service between Washington and other cities.
Your co-operation in the use of the service will help make it
most effective.
