Th e Voice of the ' Hello" Girl.
IN ANSWER TO "SPEAK KINDLY TO
"Hello, Central ! give me Mr. So-and-So,"
rang in the ear of the tired
little telephone girl.'
"Call by number, please," was
the patient reply.
"Number ! 111 be if I do !
Give me what I want, or I'll have
you fired !"
Twas the same old tune "fired

night the refrain had been sung in
to ner neaci until tne impression
was stamped on the brain aye,
burnt as if by fire and yet she
must be untiring, unceasing in her
effort to bring the great throbbing,
pulsating, gossiping world of hu
manity in touch with one another.

the long line of operators girls
hardly out of their teens, earning
their existence by catering to every
whim of the public.
What is the telephone? One has
said, "The vein of commerce." If
this be true, the central office is the
heart, and the long misjudged cen
tral girl must be likened unto the
muscles which, contracting, cause
the blood to flow into each and
every vein and artery. Have you
given her one thought, except it be
how much may she serve you?
Pause one moment, great busy
world, and think of her even one

talk.- Throw formality, pride
and social status to the winds,
Speak in the language known to
the heart, wherein soul communes
with soul, with no one to witness
save Him who said, "Judge not,
lest ye be judged." Ah, methinks
you will realize that the same God
created you both.
Listen, then. .When you call for
a number, speak kindly. Remem

A minister, one ordained of God,

twtnty-one times finally awaking
a sluraberer in order to ask if it

wondered why the telephone girl

why? Echo answers, "Why?" .
One man reported central for
ringing in his ear while he stood at
the telephone chewing a twist of
home-made tobacco not realizing
that central had other calls besides
