THE BRATTLEBORO DAILY REFORMER, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1922. '2) X t 111 1 1 Flowers For All Occasions Hopkins the Florist, Inc. SUBSCRIBE FOB THE REFORMED WOMAN'S ILLS MAKE UNHAPPY HOME. There is uo question but what the ills of women con.spire against domestic harmony. The husband cannot under stand these troubles and the physician tinds it hard to cure them; therefore the overworked wife and mother continues to drag: around day in and day out with headaches and backache, fretful and nervous. Such women should be guided by the experience of women whose letters we are continually publishing in this paper. Many of them declare that they have been restored to health, strength and consequent happiness by Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound after doc tors and all other medicines had failed to help them. It will surely pay women who suffer from such ailments to try it. Advertisement.

NEW INVENTIONS BY WASHINGTON CO. Will Make Telephones Into Wireless Re ceiving Stations To Charge $5 a Year for Seriee Residents Kick on Teleclrrotnometers. EVERETT, Wash., Sept. 1. Tele pboiies.in Everett, already equipped with a device which measures conversation, are to be liiade into wireless receiving stations through the use of an attach ment supplied by tLe Puget Sound Tele phone Co., an independent corporation which serves this city. To hear concerts, news bulletins and other features thrown on the air by broadcasting stations of Seattle, 30 miles from here, Everett radio fans, who also are telephone subscribers, will simply hook their radio receiving sets on th attachment, which is known as the radio adapter, and which will fit into the tele phone bell box. Expensive aerials and wiring will not be needed. In addition to supplying the adapter, the telephone company, working with the Seattle Radio association, will mail to its radio subscribers weekly programs of the broadcasting stations and wjll col lect $" a year from each fan to defray the cost. The Seattle association hopes to have telephones in all other cities within a radius of 100 miles, . equipped with the adapter. The conversation-measuring device, which, it is said, is not used anywhere else in the world, has been operated here for eight months, and enables the com pany to charge for the telephone service according to the length of the conversa tions. When( many residents found that the dev.ice, called the telechromometer, in creased their monthly bills, they pro tested to the state department of public works, which is to hold a hearing Sept. (' to decide whether the affair must be abandoned. In the meantime G2! Ever ett residents have signed applications for new telephones to be installed if the ma chine is given up. Friends of the telechromometer say that some of the opposition was caused by the fact that it made "listening-in" on party lines cost just so much for every minute the telephone receiver is off the hook.
