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.

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

"I think I should like It better than

"Possibly. When you have finished

blushed ns she said It.
"The oue appears to be a natural

She blushed still deeper.

"You are right. This conversation

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

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

up the same sort of chat till the
autumn arrived. Then he finished his

He stood regarding her lugubriously.
Presently his eye, falling to the desk,
lighted on a book. He took it tip nnd

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

"I came into this library n few
