Adds to Life's Joys It is so pleasant to sit in one's own homo and talk to ono's friends or members of ono's family who may be hundreds of miles away. Tho Long Distance lines of the Bell System bridge space and bring friends near and far within tho range of personal communication. Bell Telephone Lines Reach Nearly Everywhere. NEBRASKA TELEPHONE COMPANY 6 -XT mm There Is no recent Invention of Kdlson'a that will reach so many plain, average, hard-working, email wage earners as the talking moving picture. As a source of recreation, within pur chase power of even the poorest, the moving picture has already become a world-wld Institution. Its artistic and educational posslbllltcs have hardly been touched. Nevertheless, it must be ad mitted that, as a vehicle of expression, plays are limited art. Just as tHcIn more ancient form, the pantomlnc. Mov ing picture plajrs nre necessarily more or less confined to presentment of pri mitive and fundamental emotions, fear, hato, love, anger, while their humor must always verge on buffoonery, subjects fit for pantomlnc reproduction. Combining speech with the motion picture should broaden greatly Its scope, make possible finer expression of motion, and transform Its horse-play Into true comedy. In brief. It Introduces on Intellectual clement into the moving picture play. The very great appreciation with which the talking moving plcturo was received by everyone, at its first appearance on the vaudeville stage a few weeks ago Is only a herald of the popularity It will have. "It makes the photograph appear al most Insignificant," commented one man In a New Vork thfoter, "you realize at once that you nro listening to something much more wonderful than the phono graph and that the silent moving picture has been merely waiting for this," Hauling of Coal by .

In I "'ie month It hauled a total of 435 tons of I coalan average of 18.3 tons a day.

" Alany handsome library lamps worn damaged by the wind coming through broken windows. At tho homo of Arthur English, n largo library lamp was found hanging out of the window. The cord kept It from being blown away. -At John McDonald's homo a bracket screwed to the wall had been removed by the wind and taken out of the window to parts unknown. W. A.

Dead Lamp Easily . Revived When it is Gently Tapped A night or two ago. Just as Mrs. Day was finishing the washing or her dinner dishes, the Mazda lamp, wliicu had been doing such faithful service In her kitchen for so long, consigned Itself to tho fate of all things earthly and "lit out." Mrs. Day did not like tho ensuing dark ness; moreover, she did not like to part with this particular lamp. It was a sixty watt lamp and she had enjoyed Its rays for a long time. The thought came to her of how the tiny wires Inside nre sometimes sepa rated when tho lamps "burn out." 8he seized the broom and neatly tapped the lamp with the handle. The second or third time her Jarring had Its effect and the Jarring had caused the wires to unite, and again sho had the same bright light with which she had been so loath to part. .

M ZSEPTR5 5i If) LWUM I was visiting for a few days a short time ago at tliu home of a friend, and after a few trials I noticed with dismay that I was not able to sit down to break fast with the family. Although the father went to work comparatlvly lato and the children comparatively early to school, they made no attempt whatever to sltdown to tho breakfast table together. "I should think that you would all soon have dyspepsia, eating In such an Irregular way as this," I said tho third morning when I came Into the breakfast room and found the mother bringing somo toast Just off tho kitchen stove, som indifferent coffee and a soft boiled egg to one youngster, who was seated at the table, while two others played to gether at the other side or the room. I brought tho one electrical appliance she had about her house, a rather large sized disk stove, hastily connected It to the lamp socket and started the coffee to cooking. I then stood the plates for the four of us on edge around the stove so that at least one-half of them would become warm. They could of course be turned so as to heat the entire plate. I broke five eggs (one for good meas ure) into an aluminum pan. The coffee, when done, was set down by the side of the stovo to keep warm (It would not have much of a' chanco to cool), and the eggs were scrambled before we knew It, and each fellow's portion served out on the hot side of his plate. I then took the little wire "pad" which Is so com monly used for keeping hot dishes from the table and found It to be Just the thing for toasting bread evenly on a disk stove. We soon had breakfast all of us -at the same time. There ore electric table stoves which will do any form of cooking and perform two or three operations at the same time, but even if a person has riot one of these, a little careful management Is all that Is necessary to get a good breakfast on any kind of an electric stove. Fritters or anything on that order are delicious cooked on an electric stove. Turns Night Into Day.
