Lines Reach City Limits
Ready for Use Monday.

the lines of the Bell Teleihone
company between Fairmont and
,'larksburg it is hoped they will be
eady for use by Monday, according
o the calculation today of Manager

:ity limits of Fairmont last night.
The work was scheduled to start on
September 17, but no forward steps
xuld be made until September 114,
. ocause materials were held up, which
seans that the work was done in ten
.'ays. When completed in the exchange
there will be three direct physical
circuits between Fairmont and
Clarksburg; two between Fairmont
end Sbinnston; two between Shinnston
and Clarksburg, which really
oceans five circuits between Fairmont
and Clarksburg. When completed
there will be three phantom circuits

from both the ClarkBburg and Fairmont
ends. Eight hundred cross arms
nnd 8,000 glass insulators were used.
