The Electrical Voice
IT is a very delicate electrical current that car ries the sound waives produced by the hu man voice over the telephone wires. It reproduces these sound waves in their mi nutest detail and travels with almost the speed of light. Sound waves travel through the air at the rate of 1,160 feet a second. Carried through the air at that rate it would take four hours for the human voice to cross the continent. It takes one-fifteenth of a second for the voice to travel from New York to San Francisco, 3,400 miles over the transcontinental line of the Bell system, so that it may be said that telephonic communication from coast to coast is practically instantaneous. Every Bell Telephone is a Long Distance Station Cape Girardeau Bell Telephone Co. CHAUFFEUR STUDENT FINDS AUTO BALKY P. Langford of Chaffee Unable to Start Machine When it Stops to Rest. When J. 1. Langford, of Chaffee, superintendent of the Ruch Hoop and Lumber Co., last night started out to try out his new motor car, an instru ment he purchased and had received at p. m. yesterday, he had his confi dence in motors and magnetos sadly shaken when he got stuck with a dead machine early this morning in the Cape. Langford, who has driven machines for considerable time but other makes than the one he bought got his new pet from J. W. Miller of Jackson. Miller drove the car down to Chaffee to make the delivery. Langford was so impressed with the running of the machine he decided he would deliver Miller back home in Jackson. He got a couple friends of his at the lumber yards W. M. Gray and James Luman, and the four men started out for the Cape. The new car worked fine. The en gine didn't hum, like a great many motar car engines. It purred! It took scarcely no time to drive into the Cape, where Miller announced he would go to Jackson in one of the reg ular Cape-Jackson automobiles. No! Nothing must do but Langford was to try out his car on the Jackson road. He got Miller home and in bed in good time. Then the party returned to the Cape. As they approached the Cape, Lang ford noticed the working parts seemed to resent the absence of the dealer and manifested their displeasure with an occasional grunt or a wheeze. Things went well, however, and in the Cape the car was well behaved till the three men started home. They proceeded south on Spanish street to ward Good Hope, where they expected to connect with the Rock Ievee road. As the car carefully approached Merriwcthor street things began to happen inside. This was at a half hour after midnight. The engine sputtered along and Langford began trying various switch es and things that you push with your feet and pull with your hands to make the thing go. The engine heaved a tremendous sigh at the interruption by the tyro at the wheel and after a few whirls of the driving apparatus, the engine went out went to bed as one of the occupants expressed it. After several minutes tinkering with the inside of the strange car, Lang ford applied for help at the office of The Tribune. He got Miller out of a dream in which the latter was plan ning what he would do with his com mission on the newly sold car. "I'm busted down, Mr. Miller. I want help. This car o' mine is getting cantankerous and I'm afraid it needs your guiding hand. Wont you please come over ami get me home. "We got to be at work by 7 o'clock in the morning that's all we ask?" Miner rolled out and made the trip in double quick time and got the en gine to humming again. The new ma- TOO YOUNG TO WED, GIRL GETS PROOF Mayor Kagc is Convinced and Marries Addie Rhodes and Albert Tackwell. After they had been refused a mar riage license on account of the extreme youthful appearance of the bride, Al Tackwcll and Addie Rhodes, yesterday afternoon managed to put through a deal whereby they obtained their li cense and were married by Mayor Kage. The couple employed an autoist to take them to Jackson where they ap plied for their license in person before Recorder G. S. Siemers. There seemed to be little doubt about the age .of young Tackwell. The cou ple presented a happly spectacle as they lined up before Siemers and re quested the license. They were well dressed and the girl was pretty. Siemers balked on the girl's age. He was skeptical as the girl protested she was more than 18 and old enough to get married What the couple said was worth hearing. Eventually Siemers remark ed: "Tell you what I'll do. 111 fix out a marriage license and send you back over to Mayor Kagc in Cape Girar deau. You have someone verify the age on this application and it will be all right. Mayor Kagc then can go ahead and issue the license to you on that condition." The couple assented and after ob taining the papers from Siemers sped back to the Cape in their auto. In the Cape the girl's aunt, Mrs. Clark James swore to an affidavit that the bride was of a marriageable age and the wedding nuptials proceeded, the Mayor performing the ceremony.

BLAMED FOR COAL RATE BOOST IN CAPE (Continued from Page 2) ture having been pointed out, Harrison said, concurred with the new tariffs in blanket form. " ' The next step was by the C. & E. I. in publishing a supplement to the tar iff they brought before the commis sion making the advanced rates be come effective on September 30. This tariff contained the Cape Girardeau coal rate. The commission eventually publish ed its decision September 16, allowing the new tariffs. They then could be come effective without a new thirty days' notice that seemed to be absent when the news of the advance was first learned in the Cape. C. L. Harrison yesterday talked with F. C. Reilly, general freight agent of the Frisco, by long distance telephone, and learned that the Frisco's attitude toward the new coal rate is sympa thetic with the Cape. Reilly said that the Frisco did not wish the 75 cent rate on coal to become effective and had asked the C. & E. I. to suspend the tariff till an adjustment can be made. Reilly declared that he and the Fris co's legal department were anxious to avoid any controversy that easily may grow out of this rate advance. He represented that the Frisco had un wittingly concurred in the advanced rate when it was presented in what may be termed a blanket form and the significance of that one item had not been pointed out. In making the city's appeal to the commission for a rehearing in the Cape's coal rate case, the Frisco con curs in the pcition for a re-opening of the case. If the Commission decides to re-open the case, it virtually would place the Frisco and teh Cape together in trying to prove to the commission that the C. & E. I. should not be al lowed to advance the rate. Harrison yesterday remarked that the commission already had decided that rate on its merits, that is, de termined that the C. & E. I. is entitled to a greater remuneration for the serv ice it performs than it has been get ting, and as a consequence may refuse to order a return to the 60 cent rate. He anticipates, he declared, that the commission will say that the contract between the city and the Frisco is a j thing to be settled between those two parties and that on the merits of the case, that is no reason why the C. & E. I.'s rate should be cut down. The C. E. I. is the only road that will be allowed to participate in the advance of 13 cents. Such a decision cutting off any hope of a return of the 60 cent coal rate will mean that the Frisco's contract with the city has been abrogated and that it will be necessary for the road to make a compensation fixed by the board of arbitration. The city will file a notice of the contracts abrogation with the road's receivers and warn them of trespassing. "The road will become a transgres sor on the city's property," Harrison declared, "and it will be time for the Frisco to jump and jump quickly. The roa dsimply will have to come to time. The city has made its declaration that there is no compensation possible for this loss of the coal rate. "It will be a shown down. I believe that the matter will come to this pass, too. I expect the commission to refuse the return of the old rate. That will mean war. Why, it will be possible for the city to simply get a sheriff, take a chain down to the Frisco tracks and tie up the freight service. "It would be out of the question to stop passenger traffic because of the U. S. mail. "Additional train service in the new Caruthersville accommodation is not a compensating feature in this case, tl is a money maker for th? road anil be sides the Mayor has plainly said, the city did ont ask for that train."
