BARB WIRE 'PHONES.
Farmers Near Spdkane Form a Tele'
phone System With a Central Of
fice at Freeman.
Spokane, Dec. 24. The farmers of
the Mica district, in the southeastern
part of this county, have formed a
telephone syndicate, known as the
Richland Telephone Company, and
have made arrangements for placing
120 Instruments among the families
of that neighborhood.
In place of the regular telephone
wire the barb wire fences are utilized.
Tho whole country teems with them
and consequently there is no difficul
ty in running the line. Already there
have been about 20 "phones Installed,
with a central office at Thomas' store
at Freeman, with a switchboard there.
With this arrangement a fanner In
one section of the district can call
up a resident of another part without
the least trouble or Inconvenience. It
is the intention of the syndicate to
establish a central office at Mica and
connect with Spokane and Palouse.
For Ladies. For Gentlemen.
