I would run out the buirzy and hitch

later smoked the two cigars without
batting an eyelash. It did not make

tever cared a great deal for smoking.
I Imagine that during the last fifty
years I have smoked on the average
as often as once In six months.

There are, In Greater New York.
l.SOG.&sO telephones. They are used
for 8,000,0)0 calls per day. That is
understandable enough, as a great
part of the business of this largest
city In the United States Is done by
telephone. There was a day w hen some
body in the home usually went to
market Now most of them telephone.
Brokerage houses do most of their
business over the wire, although late
ly the switchboard operators In these
pWices of Investment and chance have
not been so busy. Stores, hotels, news
papers, buslm.'sse of every description
find constant use for the telephone.
You don't run over to a friend's or
neighbor's place any more; or, If you
do, you first telephone to find out
whether he Is In. The working boy
used to have to wait until evening to
call on his girl. Now he can tele
phone her In his noon hour and gen
erally does. Women make half-hour
social calls over the phone. An In
teresting bit of news can be relayed
Instantly. All htimnn emotions, which
can be transmitted by the voice, trav
el over the wires.
I sometimes have wondered what
would happen In a city such as New
York If some day the telephone sys
tem suddenly were destroyed. I can
think of nothing which would paralyze
or Isolate a city quicker. The renult
for a time would be panic and chaos;
although the telegraph and radio
might take up some of the burden.
A man who stnmers tells me that
he never has any difficulty In pro
nouncing any word If he closes his
eyes. He worked that out from the
discovery that he never stammered
when talking In the dark.
