Invention of the Telephone Evidently
Waa Not by Any Means a
Quiet Affair.
The landlady couldn't stand It any
longer, and the lodgers threatened to
leave unless the racket stopped.
Alexander Graham Bell was the
cause of the trouble. He had rigged
up a contraption In his bedroom and
a duplicate In the room of his accom
plice, Thomas A. Watson. A wire went
out of the window and connected the
two machines.
These two machines, according to
young Bell, were first models of a
revolutionary invention, tlie telephone.
"I don't care what It Is," said the
landlady, "but If you two boys don't
stop yelling your heads off, Into those
boxes, you'll have to pack your trunks
uud get out."
This episode of the angry landlady
happened years ago In a cheap lodging
house In Boston.
The Western Union Telegraph com
pany offered Bell $100,000 for all his
patents. Bell, with vision, realized
that he had a fortune within grasp
and rejected the offer. He and Wat
son went around the country, deliver
ing lectures, and with the proceeds
financed themselves.
Today there Is a telephone to every
nine Americans and more than 24,-
000,000 miles of wire In the Bell tele
phone lines.

that he had forgotten his name, ap- '

a few hours' rest he rime to himself. 1
He proved to tie John Lester, who is
employed by an O.-W. R. & N. bridge
crew at Meaner. Apparently he alight
