Enterprise pressing Club oucktown Cleaning, Dyeing, Pressing, Repairing A Card to Owners of Rural Telephone Lines We are anxious to 8ee that all lines owned by other parties and connected with us are kept in such condition as to furnish efficient service. Where the owners of rural lines are responsible for their upkeep, we want to co-operate with them. All lines require a thorough overeauling occa sionally if the best service is to be obtained. We recommend that every line connected with us be overhauled at least once a year, and that at least one experienced telephone man assist in this work. The cost of this work when divided among all the patrons of the line, makes the amount paid by each man small, and this cost will be more than offset by the improved service.

We will gladly do what we can toward helping you improve the con dition of your line. CUMBERLAND TELEPHONE & TELEGRAPH COMPANY INCORPORATED BOX 450, ATHENS, TENNESSEE.
