cannot be collected from street car companies
in the same manner that tbey are enforced
from hackmea. In the one case, be says,

In prineipte it is; ia fact it is not. The

SOCIAL SAYINGS AKD DOINGS.
The old saying "Kissing goc9 by fnvor" is
woll known. It tins remained for the latter
part of the nineteenth century to evolve an
other and wholly different method than that
usually employed for the transmission of os
culntory favors. This is to have the matter
accomplished by telephone.
The invention is not, however, patented,
and may upon occasion be adopted in other
cities than Washington. Therefore it is open
for adoption by the humblest aspirant for this
sort of caress, which, fiora the standpoint of
an outsider, would seem to bo to the last de
gree unsatisfactory. It is, moreover, open to
sueh flagrant trespassing on tho part of a
third party, whoso line may hnppen at the
time of the telephonic caress to cross with
that of the genuine sender, as to render it ex
tromely unlikely that it will over have any
The way in which tho secret was first dis
covered was through the loquaciousness of
one of the girls at tho telephone station.
Noticing the frequency with which certain
numbers were rung up during tho day in
business hours and Unit the lino so used wns
between a down town office and an uptown
roaldence, tho operator having some spuro
time at her disposal devoted it to listening to
tho conversation that passed over tho line.
It did not take her long to become awaro
that tho down town end of tho lino was used
by n youug man to send mpsag03 Irom his
place of business to his sweetheart at her
home uptown. These mes'-usos invnriably
em:od iu tho young man sending n kiss to his
swiH(hrt, whioh4 ilouwless later in thoeven
Ing. was delivered ia proper stylo in person.
A . ri,'ht idea thereupon occurred to tho
girl hi the oentrnl station, which she immedi
ately proceeded to put iu execution and play
a harmless trick upon the unsuspo -ting lovers.
Having noted that th" sound made by u k.ss
was identical with that made by suddenly
turning on tho couneition and as suddenly
turning it ofl again, when tho youug man had
sent hie goodby kiss as usunl she worked tho
telephone to simulate a second and most em
phatic eound of a Kiss. Her little ruse was
rewarded bv hearing tho fiancee call back in
Ui mobt octatic manner: "Oh. you dear I oy,
there's another and ever so much nicer than
the llrst one."
There are ever so many seorets of which tho
girls at the jelephona Hati-m become uncon
sciously possessed, with which they could set
"Washington by the ears if they wore so
minded to make use of their knowledge.
Thn are a certain set of youug follows who,
without the slightest thought on the subject,
are continually giving themselves away to tho
telephone girls. The mo-t fro nicut manner
in which this is done is to call up a certain
number, which tho girls Foon got to know by
the conversation passing over tho lines, is
that of the home in which tho unsuspecting
wife is awaiting the arrival of her liega lord.
With a few hurried words the husband In
forms his wife that business of tlie irreatest
importance will keep him down town until a
very late hour, whereupon he urges that she
does not sit up and wait for him. Then al
most before the home conncK-tlon has been
cat off the gny Lothario rings up another
number. This time it is very evident to tho
girl at the telephone station" that there are
larks ahad for the young husband, who. all
unthinking of n listener to his two conversa
tions, calls to some equally gny young woman,
