I am glad you are
using the Long Distance
Bell Telephone in your
business. There's noth
ing like it for saving time
and traveling expenses.
It is the source of direct profit and satisfying results.
Very often I talk to salesmen and to custo
mers on important matters. That's one advantage
of the Bell Telephone. You can sit in your office
and bring the world to you.
Thanks for the order. By using the Long
Distance Telephone you enable us to save twenty
four hours on the shipment. Yes, it certainly is '
wonderful.
Every Bell Telephone is a Long Distance Station.

TO GET BEST RESULTS
SPEAK CLOSE TO PHONE
The local Stantonville Tele
phofte Company offers some very
good free advice to their patrons,
if they will only heed it. Many
of the complaints, they say, made
by the subscribers that their
'phones do not talk lip and they
cannot hear, are especially due
to the improper method of the
subscriber in talking into the tel
e phone. Some people talk
I*? anc ^ some t a lk "away from
some as though the tele
phone did not exist.

In the Builder of Bridges is
shown the Tunkhannock bridge
located in Scranton, Pa., now in
process of construction, and when,
completed will cost over twelve
million dollars. The picture pre
! sents some splendid realistic
scenes. Then transformed from
bridge building, the story, by a
cleverly executed comparison,
shows a powerful man construct
ing his life. It is a virile play
and the theme woven around it
has heart interest of compelling
power.— M. P. World.

The official leader of "Cor

nounced this morning that every
effort was being made to make
the hunting trip tonight in search
of the monster Bob-Cat, which
chased them in home sometime
ago, when they were out on a
camp. He stated that the near

of Corinth" were, and it is very
likely now, that unless many
more new members are secured to
join the party, the trip will be
postponed indefinitely. Every
thing is in readiness, the double

the other dogs that will enter the
