Two Schools Hiue Mothers' Bay
Mothers' Day wa3 observed at the
Lincoln school building Thursday and
at the Washington building Friday. At
the former about ninety mothers were
present and at the latter 125.
At the Lincoln building addresses
were made by 13. T. Tramp and Supt.
Tout, and nt tho Washington building
the speakers were Miss Annie Kramph,
Dr. Mct'abe and Supt Tout. At both
buildings Informal talks were made by
mothers and teachers, and this was
followed by tho serving of light re

In the respective buildings.

In tho United States the telephone has been ex
tended to small towns, farms and ranches much more
generally than in any other country.
In American towns of under 100,000 people, and on
the farms and ranches, there is an average of one tel
ephone for every 12 persons; in Europe there is less
than one telephone for every 200 people.
Nearly 58 of American telephone exchanges are
in very small towns with less than 300 subscribers.
In tho small towns and on the farms in Europe the
telephone is a near curiosity.
The private companies in America have given the
American people the lowest telephone rates any
whero and have extended the service until this coun
try now has more telephones and more telephone
wire than all the rest'of the world.
