wisheil to mnke some ose of its great
fiieilitiea lying ille at night. It was
ilociileil to iniilie the experiment of giv
ing its put runs the opportunity to
send fifty words nt nlglit for the cost
of 11 ten word day message, to lie de
livered at the stnrt of business the
next iluy. The idea took from the
Ktnrt. liusiiirss men foil in I they eould

! unit much ehenper tlinii the old rutc
iof messages. Then the man awny from
1 home begun to send his wife a night
i letter, which she read at breakfast the
I next morning. Ilnsiness houses began
ito send nppenls to customers by the
jniglit letter. Then the Western I'nion
'went ul'ter the business in earnest and
! now there are I 'J. 100,000 night let
ters uiiniiully.
There is a lot of psychology ubout
the night letter. In the first place
the Western I'nion figured that the
business 1111111 who sat down in frnut'of
his pile of mnil in th morning wuhl
give his first attention fo the tele
grams. This belief was coiiiuiunionted
lo other business men, mid the busi
iiosb men found it was good logic. Now
tiie use of the iiiuht letter has been
developed until it is used for urging
payment oil accounts; used by politi
cians in the business of getting votes;
used to ask contribution to war re
lief funds; used tor placiiig4business
orders, ami for a myriad of other uses.
It Is n part of the American business
svstem.
When it came to the social use ot
the night letter, it was found that the
psvchologv of the telegram was again
a fnctor. It had long been the eus-
toiu for the woman who received a
telegrnm to handle it with the fire
tongs and to pray a few moments that
tiie news was not so bad as it might be
before she opened it. For telegram
formerlv were used in emergence! so-
iullv, and the dread aad fear of tele
grams had to be overcome. This has
been iu a large sense nehieved, and
now- wives ami husbands who are sep
arated send tens of thousands' of tele-
grama every year, which trite, or bus
band reads' at breakfast nud learns
how the other half of the family fares.
Women ' Fear of Telegrama
Hut the old time fear of the telegram
iia not leen altogether overcome by
the night letter. Only this month, when
the nation wide use of the night let
ter was suggested in eonnection with
the celebration of Mother's Day on
Mav 14, by which sons and daughter
eould send' words of eheer to the "Old
r'olks"t Home," it was juggested that
the mother would receive a fear along
with the telegram which would coun
teract the words of eheer they would
read when they opened it. It was at
first suggested that "special envelopes
u naeit which would bear the word
"This U a Mother 'a Oay telegram."
This wa discarded because it was too
expensive.. wpeciui motaer s o.n.
hluuks were furnished, aud the rest of
thn nroblem was solved bv instructing
all mesaeauer bova delivering such
message to aajr to the recipient, "Ma
dam, this is a motaer'a day message'
Telegraph officials hope even this pre
caution will not be necessary in a
year or two.
Telegraph officials believe that the
business nihl social possibilities of the
telegraph have only been tapped. They'
believe there will be more new uses
and greater applications of the ser
vice. As the night letter was inaugur
ated in IIHO to supply a use for facili
ties at night, the day letter was. start
