RURAL TELEPHONES INCREASING FAST (Continued from third page.) y-tien:, it alone has sold over eighty thousand rural telephones within the oast six months. An up-to-date farmer once said that ie would as soon think of mowing his aay with an old-fashioned scythe as of trying to conduct his farm auccess rully without a telephone. These ire the days whei agricultural Amer ica is reclaiming so-called waste and; is buying farm implements that reduce toll and increase pro ductiveness and the telephone is the instrument that Is going hand-in-hand with aU these improvements in the rural communities. The farmer or ranchman who sells his products or stock keeps well in formed on the fluctuations of the market by mean.? of the telephone. He sells at the top price and calls iiis phone a Teal money-saver. If there is sickness in the house he can locate the doctor even If he has to phone across the county. He can ?et in quick communication with the veterinary surgeon if some one of his nresious animals becomes suddenly indisposed. For his wife and children there is a means of enlivening the iong day by conversations and ex change of visits with neighbors. N'eighbors on Western farms are of ten many miles apart but they can ie brought nearer than next door with the aid of the telephone. These are some of the many reas ons why rural phane3 jumped 449 per cent. In the United States and 2,350 per cent, in the far west in five years. It can truly be said that the country telephone has had its part In the winning of the west. Indian blankets at Funk's. Individual silk waist patterns Funk's. at A LITERARY AFFAIR. By ARTHUR D. BERWICK. (CopyriKht, 1!JS. liy American I'rf., Asso ciation.! H was a pretty town, but iiiui'diiiaie ly dull. The branches of the trees formed au arch over the streets they were rather roads giving In summer a delicious shade. Hut few people walk ed on tbem. aud where there was a footstep It sounded loud. In winter there was no sound at all, for snow covered the ground, aud even wheels could uot be beard. He went there In midsummer. He didn't go from choice. He was obliged to go. There was a deal on. and he must manage It from ibis quiet spot. His work wns principally waiting for people to make up their minds to sell what they owned and for instructions. The town possessed a dainty little library. He weut there for something to read. There was a cheerful ap pearance Inside, logs blazing In a broad tiled fireplace. The librarian, a girl of twenty, stepped to the desk. "I would like a book of some kind." he said. "I'm cooiied up here with lit tle to do aud insufferably bored." .jrhere were booksjonjhe desk which be took up and wanned listlessly. ' "What book would you liter asked the librarian. "I haven't the slightest Idea." "You'll find- the card rack over there.' "Couldn't you susgest something?" I Fictlnur j "Yes." t "El.nve you rend 'Robinson Crusoe?" 1 "Yes. wheu a boy. Wby sbould I read that now?" j "Well. Crusoe was alone on bis U ! land; you are alone here. You might I pet some sugsestion from him as to ! how to occupy your tlnip." "Thank you: I'd rather read this. The Heart's Highway. I could do better In recommending books to you." "What would you suggest?" I "'Pur Yourself In Ills Place." i "That's Impossible. You are a man. j I a woman. You are a stranger; I am I at home here." "1 niu a bachelor, and you. I pre j sume. are a innid." I "How would -When n Man's Single' j suit you?" "I think I should like It better than 'Robinsou Crusoe.' Would It help me?" "Possibly. When you have finished It you might take up this one: 'It Is Never Too Late to Mend.'" She blushed ns she said It. "The oue appears to be a natural sequel of the other. What's this, 'Red as a Rse Is She?" " She blushed still deeper. "We are uot getting on. I wish a novel to while away the time, aud I don't find oue. "You are right. This conversation can do you no good, and It might pro duce" " 'Ritter Fruit.' " he interrupted, reading the title of a volume she handed him. She turned away, nnd he. going to the card rack, fingered the cards for nwhlle in silence, looking aside occa sionally at the girl, who st by the Are reading. Presently he selected a book. She jabbed It with a stamp and. glanc ing at the title, gave her head a slight toss. It was "A Pnsslng Fuocy." "Better take that," she said, handing him "A Bit of a Rogue." He came again the next day nnd the next, taking out books and keeping up the same sort of chat till the autumn arrived. Then he finished his work nnd before leaving weut to the library to return what books remained with him. "I go tomorrow," he said, "Thanks for the books. Tills one," laying "The Wooing O't" on the desk, "I have en Joyed very much." He looked at her with nn unmistakable glint lu his eye. "I thought you would prefer 'A Mid summer Madness.'" "I warn you that you may cast ridi cule on my feelings" " 'Once Too Often,' " stamping a book of that name. "Have you considered what I said to you the last time I was here?" he asked. "Y'es. and I regard it" the stamp came down on "A Flirtation With Truth." "How can you say that? I told you I loved you nnd wished you to be my wife, giving you time for considera tion." "And my answer is that I prefer this retreat and independence to the city and slavery to nn artificial life." He stood regarding her lugubriously. Presently his eye, falling to the desk, lighted on a book. He took it tip nnd handed it to her. It was "A Woman's No." Thus far the desk had been between them. Lifting the latch to the gate that shut him off from the Interior, he went Inside. She was leaning on the desk, ne stole his arm arouud ber waist and spoke low in her ear: "I came into this library n few months ago to seek solace from loneli ness. I found It. but not In the books I have taken out. for I have not read one of tbem. Nevertheless I appreci ate them because they have nfforded us a language of love. They have served ns shields to that diffidence which hedges n newborn affection. But they are no longer needed. Let us now talk plainly. Tell me, do you love me. and will you marry me?" "I will." When he returned to the city he was commended for his patience In remain ing in a dull country town until every bit of the work assigned him had been satisfactorily closed. It was only when the winter came on and they received bis wedding cards that they under stood the reason for bis acquiescence in his hard lot. Literal.
