AN INEXPERIENCED TK..Vr.LEU's UKORI
r.. i , ,
vuu man rcacneu a long nun over
tho little crowd clustered at the op
erator's window nnd asked for a "blank
telegraphic form," explaining that lip
"wished to send a telegraphic dispatch
to his family." Now, when a man
speaks of a "telegraphic dispatch" I
always wake up anil look at him, be
causo the cumbersome title is at utter
variance witli tho spirit of tho telegraph.
Itfs too lone. Tho use of it betravs-

shorter Ins terms. The more nearly he he liv'od. l lAeTraw JHwHy" a: It
can conio to saying "msg" tiio moro
content he is. Ami he dosen't call it a
"telegraphic form;" he asks for a
"blank," black or red, as the cise may
be. And he never "telegraphs" any
body. Ho "wires" them. And he
dosen't cxp'nin to the operator what he
wants to do with the blank. Presum
ably he wants" to write a message.
And as to the matters referred to that
"msg" and the p-vrty for whom it is in
tended, the operator will kuo" a'l that
he wishes to know and sometimes
much more than you want him to know
So I watched tho passenger write
his "telegraphic dispatch." First he
asked the operator: "What day of tho
month is this!" Thero was nothiii"
unusual in that. AH men ask that. It
is the opening line in tho regular for
mula of .sending a "msg." You may
know what date it is before entering
the office, j ou may even have it impress
ed upon your mind by hav ing a note fall
due on that day, but the moment you
poise your pencil over the blank, that
date Hies from your mind like tho tooth
acho from a dentist's stairway. So
when the man asked: "What day of tli:
mouth is this' I was not surprised. I
courteously answered him, as a cover
to npproaching his position, but he did
not believe me. He repeated his nues
lion and made the operator answer.
Then I knew he was very new at it.
He .spoiled thiee blanks before he got
a "telegraphic dispatch" written to suit
him. Rufovcrvbody uses stationery
inoreextiavngantly in another man's
office than he does at home. Tlru Iip
w rote every vv ord in the body of the
dispatch v cry distinetiv ely, but scramb
led hurriedly over the address as though
everybody knew as well as he did and
terstyle, as though his namowasas famil
iar to the operator as it was to his own
family. Rut even this is not uncom
mon. A man will write "Cuiiingliani"
so that no expert under the skies will
tell whether it was Covington or Car
rington, or Cummagen, or Carrcnton,
and when the operator points to it and
asks "What is this?" tho writer will
stare at him in blank amazeiuct for a
moment, and then answer: "Why, that's
my name!" "Well, yes, I know that,"
the operator will say, "but what is
your naint t" Then the man will grasp
for breath and catch hold of the desk
to keep himself from falling, "and finally
shout: "Why, Cunningham of course,
! ! !"and look pityinglyupon the opera
tor and then glance about the room
with a pained, shocked exprtssion, m
ono who would say, "Gentlemen you
may not believe it, and I do not blame
you, but heaven is my witness here is
a uianwhodocs notknow that my name
is Cunningham I' This is not unusual.
Any operator will tell you that he has
met Cunningham scores of times and
lias mort ally-offended him every time
by asking him his name.
Well, my tall man with the thin
neck got along a little better than that
when he handed the operator tho fol
low ing explicit message:
Mrs. IT. Follinsbce, Dalles Centre,
Iowa: My Dear Win:: I left the city
early this morning after eating break
fast with Prof. Morton, a live man in
tho temperance cause. I expected to
eat dinner with you at home, but wo
were delayed by a terrible railroad
accident and I nanovvly escaped bein"
killed; one passenger wa3 terribly
mangled and has since died, but I am
alive. The conductor says I cannot
make connection so as to come to Dalles
Centro this morning, but I can get
there by 8 o clcck this ev ening. 1 hat
to dissappoint you, but cannot help it.
With love to mother and tho children
'I am your loving husband.

sago bwn to 10 words. Wo have no
wiredjirctly to Dalles, and will havo to
semi this message part of tho wav over
another line, which adds largely to
tho cost of transmission. Shall I
shorten this fur you?-' "No. Oh no'
the man with the shawl replied, "I'll
fix it myself." Ten words you say!"
"Yes sir." It was a stunner, for a
fact, and tho man heaved a despairing
sigh as he prepared to boil his letter
down to 10 worik He sighed again
after reading it through once or twice
drew his ptnslowh through "broakfast
with ' and "in the temperance." Then
he scratched over "dinuer vvith'and
went on to erase "and narrowly es
caped." And so ho went on through
tho dispatch. Occasionally he would"
hold it from him at arm's length after
making an erasure, to get at the general
effect. And at last, after much scratch
ing and ciasing, and with many signs,
ho came to the window and said, "Hero
is the telegraphic dispatch to my Wifd.
I havo not been able to condense it int
to 10 words, and do not see how it can
be done w ithout garbling tho senso of
tho dispatch, but if you can do it, you
would oblige mo greatly, as I do not
vv.sh to incur any really necessary ex
pense." And with that he handed tho
operator tho following expunged edi
tion of his original message:

ton alive cause I expected to eat

Cenue but I can. I hate mother

Ron Kit K. FoixiNsifEB
Tho operator smiled once more, and'
in his quick, nervous way that growsT
out of his familiar association with tha
lightning, made a few quick dashes"
with his pencil, and without adding
or changing a letter in the original mes--sige,
shriveled it do.vn to its Very sin
ews, like this:
Sarali H. Follinsbee, Dallas Centre,
Iowa; Left city 'smorning; delayed by aoci

Roonn K. Folmnsiieic.
"There, that is all right." Ho said,
in the cheery, magnetic way these op
erators have. "Fifty cents, iir; only
25 cents if we had our own wire into
Da1Ia, sir; we'll havo ono next spring,
too; saves your several dollars, sir.
That's right, thank you." And tlio
man went and sat down on a chair by
thestovo and stared at that operator
until t'ie rescuing train came along, as
though he wcro a worker of miracles.
And when ho got off the train at the
junction for tho Dalles, 1 henrd him
whispering softly to himsolf: "Stifollns

was practicing his lesson and had
