IT RESEMBLES A FULL FLEDGED TELEGRAPH COMPANY* An Axnfctear Organization, the Member* of Which Have Their Homes Connect* ed by Wire*, So That Thejr May Com mnninte with Each Other by Telegraph. One of the most novel or unique or ganizations in Brooklyn is one that has recently gained a new lease of life ttirongh the infusion of new and vig orous blood and by ?he a thorough reorgan isation. It is called the Phenix Morse ^Teleprraph club, and is perhaps the only ie of its kind in the United States, old organization was formed in *379 and stalled in life under the name Otf the Phenix club. It was inaugurated *Y a number of young people, some of Whc were engaged in occupation as ifclegraphera, and others of different vo cations, who took pleasure in studying tiie mysterious language of dots and dashe*. A private telegraph line was established and connected with the res iliences of the members. A busy wire it was too. The hum of conversation, if it can "be termed such, was constant throughout the evening. Storios were ^pa-ssed over tha electrical current, jests and jokes bandied, chess and checkers glayed by individuals who liked this jjprt of recreation, and in fact as good a time was usually japsel as if the mem liers were brought in contact with each Other by person in one room. Jokes of an innocent character were also carried on over the circuit, which 2|ad the advantage in so far as to allow the perpetrator to remain unknown or Siaking it unnecessary to flee from the Wrath of the person upon whom it was sted. Quite a number of these are ttock property among the old members, "*bo relate them to friends with as much gusto and enjoyment as if they had oc curred only yesterday. One of these is tso the effect that two memlers after practicing with another in the early evening, during which the sender trans fuitt'l the Mor.-e characters i* fast as fie con Id, or as telegraphers would say ^'fushed" the receiver, notwithstanding Jjlie protests of this unfortunate disciple .—pf America's noted inventor. The latter jn'umised himself that a speedy revenge ,3*vould follow, and sought to find some lueans whereby he could make the *'rusher" as uncomfortable be had ieen previously. -H The practicing finally eatne to an end, *|inri the receiver waited until an on ly hour of the morning, when he his victim had gone to bed and the click of a sounder would strike rl^"' and quiet with the distinct «f a blow from a trip hammer.

Here are located the battery room, which furnishes the powerful fluid by which the wire is worked, and another, which in called the operating room, su v/hicli are placed four sets of instru nents uad a double practic ing outfit.

Eight cells of liutt t'-vy work the I circuit, which covers distance of near ly eighteen miles ia this city, mainly in the upper residence section. The old "string'' was overhauled by an ex]jerieuced lineman recently and put in sufficiently substantial shape in order to enable it to more readily resist the wear and tear of a line in a large and busy city. The circuit is placed along the housetops on the route, and trouble of any kind or, as an operator would say, "bugs" are rarely met with cr experienced. Twenty-three so called "office*" are on the circuit, all of which have their calls in the same maimer as V -v V v Triumphal Enity mis Bent!

He called in this furious style until he had awak ened the sleeper, who jumped up out of bed and went to the instrument, ex pecting to hear that something dreadful had happened. He answered the call qnakingly. His indignation can be im agined when the query came slowly and distinctly: "Will you please tell me the time my clock lias run down." His answer is not recorded, but it is safe to assume that the immediate vicin ity became as warm as a hot box of an overheated wheel. N The organization went on in the even tenor of its vray until two or three yoara ago, when it began to languish, partly on account of a defection of members who moved away from th^ city or be cause the remaining persons would not shoulder in the proier or necessary man ner the worry and expense of conduct ing such and organization. Then came another club which w is purely social in its character and which was also called the Phenix club. It may have been that the similarity of names caused a bond of friendship to be established or that some of the members of this body wore capable of handing a key and working the electrical current. However this may be, the two organ izations were amalgamated aad a new order of affairs brought about thereby. The name was changed to-the present one, and under which it started out with bright and prosperous auspices. V', -l-\ 1 VERNON BR09. Absolute Kings of the Air.
