Tlie part tlie telephone plays in business ami uncial life is
often never appreciated un- til an emergency arises. Recently
a case arose where bong Distance was asltcd to gel on the

It was not known where he was, but lhe message was extremely
urgent, Without detailing th'e work of the operator, or the number of places called, it is enough lo say thai, the party w*a*i located and a messii"e sent o ut by row Iroal thai he was wanted on

the summer I'hey have lolled; an ',
llit'ii Ihere comes a lot-rent���the foci
is mosl alihorenl���an all their work
is spoiled. Their road is washed lo
thunder; and they repeal, their blunder, 'tlicy build It up again; they eul
iheir bootless capers with graders a"d
wiili scrapers, misguided s'ns of nie
The reads aro dragged and "traded',
and manicured and spaded, and when
