Thirty years ago tha telephone was a luxury. Today,
through personal Initiative and private enterprise. It has become
a necessity within the reach of everybody. Where once a busi
ness hsd but one telephone with a limited talking range, today
that business has service with a range three-quarters of a conti
nent broad, and every brunch of every business Is linked to ev
ery other by nn Intercommunicating telephone system.
The telephone has earned Its responsible plsce snd there are
