the contracts made here last week by the representative of a Furgo con
cern to construct twenty-two silos in Williams county. It is probable
that at least twenty more contracts will be let during the next two
weeks. Many of these are due largely to the trip of Williams county
farmers through the dairy regions of Minnesota and Wisconsin. They
returned enthusiastic converts to dairying and the first thing they plan
ned was the construction this summer of silos to be filled with corn
ensilage this fall.
It is estimated there will be at least 2,000 new silos constructed
in North Dakota in 1914 and Williams county fully Intends to have her

Crawford heard the case against the

The decision will probably be reached
some time next week. The court crit

sioners as shown by the testimony re
garding the alleged careless methods
used lnfc conducting the affairs and
also m^dc'' some remarks regarding the
manner in which county offices should
be conducted. Certain residents of tile
county seek to have the board remov
ed. The real gist of the fight is that
since the burning^pf the courthouse the
commissioners have not arranged for
the construction of a new building, an

to Dunn Center on the railroad line.
This has angered some residents of
the county who want the county seat

be increased more than ever. There
are several farmers in this vicinity who
will plant 100 acre fields, and there are
several who will plant as much as a

years ago and no heirs have been
found. The estate was appraised at
$8,247.48. After paying all claims and
the probate fees and attorneys' fees,
the above balance was left for the state.
In no line of human endeavor has the
inventive brain of the scientist contributed
more to the world's progress than by the
creation of the art of telephony, of which
the Bell system is the embodiment.
When the telephone was born nothing
analagous to telephone service as we now
know it existed. There was no tradition to
guide, no experience to follow.
The system, the apparatus, the method»—
an entire new art—had to be created. The
Bell pioneers, recognizing that success de
pended upon the highest engineering and
technical skill at once organized an experi
mental and research department, whioh is
now directed by a staff of over 550 engineers
and scientists, including former professors,
post-graduate students, scientific investi
gators—the graduates of over 70 universi*
From its foundation th« company has con
tinuously developed the art. New improve
ments in telephones, switch boards, lines,
cables have followed one another with re
markable rapidity.
While each successive type of apparatus
to the superficial observer suggested simi
larity, each step in the evolution marked a
decided improvement. These changes, this
evolution, has not only been continuous, but
is continuing. Substantially all of the plant
now in use, including telephones, switch
boards, cables and wires, has been con
structed, renewed or reconstructed in the
past 10 years.
Particularly in switch boards have the
changes been so radical that installations
costing in the aggregate millions have fre
quently been discarded after only a few
years of use.
Since 1877 there have been introduced 53
types and styles of receivers and 73 types
and styles of transmitters. Of the 12,000,000
telephone receivers and transmitters owned
by the Bell company January 1, 1914, none
were in use prior to 1902, while the average
age is less than five years.
Within 10 years we have expended for
construction and reconstruction an amount
more than equal to the present book value
of our entire plant.

Our persistent study and incessant exper
imentation have produced results more re
markable still.
We have perfected cables, apparatus and
methods that have overcome obstacles here
tofore regarded as insuperable both to long
distance overhead and underground con*
Underground onversation is now possible
between Boston and Washington, four times
the length of the longest European under
ground line. This enabled the Bell system
in the recent great storm, so destructive on
land and eea, to maintain communication
for the public between all the principal
points on the Atlantic seaboard.
Telephone communication is established
between New York and Denver is potetnti
ally possible between all points in the United
States, and by 1915 will be an accomplished
fact between New York and San Francisco.
In our use of methods or apparatus, we
are committed to no one system. We owns,
control or have the right to use of inven
tions necessary to operate any system reo
ognized or accepted as the most efficient.
The Bell system must always recognize and
in its sslection must always be governed
by the necessities of a national service,
with its complex requirements, whioh is in
finitely more exacting than local or limited
These achievements represent vast expend
itures of money and immense concentration
of effort, which have been justified by re
sults of immeasurable benefit to the publie.
No local company unaided could bear the
financial or scientific burden of this work.
Such results are possible only through a
centralized general staff, avoiding wasteful
duplication of effort, working out problems
common to all, for the benefit of all.
The pioneers of the Bell system recognized
that telephone service as they saw it was in
the broadest sense a public utility that
upon them rested a public obligation to give
the best possible service at the most reason
able rates consistent with risk, investment
and the continued .improvement and main*
tenance of its property.
Without this expenditure of millions and
concentration of effort, the telephone art
it exists could not have been developed.
What we have done in working out thes«
great problems in the past should be ac
cepted as a guarantee of what we will do ill
the future.

until 1905 that conversation could be had
over long distance circuits of which as muoh

1906 underground talking distance had in
