Helps With the Lessons
At night when the children gather around the sitting-room table studying their lessons for the next day, the telephone often rings. A little neighbor a mile down the road wants help from his school-mates. Children as well as grown-ups get pleasure and profit from the farm telephone. Do you know how little this service costs and how valuable it is ? See the nearest Bell Telephone Manager or write for our free booklet. A postal will do.
