"Worth More
Than it Costs"
Lots of farmers declare their telephone service
is worth more than it costs. J. W. Harris, a well
known farmer living near Choccolocco, Ala.,
writes:
"I had occasion to call our doctor not two
hours after my telephone was connected with
your exchange. My mother, who is very old,
fell down the door steps and broke her arm, and
I called the doctor. He was at my house before
I could have gone to his residence, as he has an
automobile.
"We would not be without our telephone for
more than it costs and appreciate the assistance
you rendered us."
Our free booklet tells how you may have tele
phone service on your farm at small cost. Write
