'Young America." After this address
diplomas were presented to fifteen
.graduates, twelve young ladles and
throo young men. This was tho largest

tho valedictory address In such an
efficient and cffectlvo manner. She
having received tho class honors was

When Your Voot Is Asleep.
After being for a long tlmo In a con
strained attitude n peculiar numbness
and pricking arc often felt In tho arm,
leg or foot This Is caused by some' In
terruption to tlio circulation nuu can
usunlly bo removed by nibbing or ex
ercise. The reason of tho sensation,
whlcji Is decidedly uncomfortablo while
It lasts, Is that prcssuro for a certain
length of tlmo deadens the sensibility
of a nerve. V hen this pressure is slid
dcnly removed, as straightening out
tho leg nf ter sitting with it doubled un
dcrnonth the body, sensibility gradual

ity n pricking sensation is felt; rind
thoso successive prickings from tho

What Dividend Should
a Telephone Company Pay?
We believe that we should pay such a return on the money
invested in our property as will enable us to obtain additional
money necessary for making extensions and improvements re
quired by the public.
If we do not earn enough to get this new money the public '
will suffer from the curtailment of extensions and improvements
that should be made. We make additions to the plant out of new
f money invested and not out of profits from the service sold.
There aro many problems peculiar to the telephone business
necessitating extra expenditures which we cannot control. There
are occasional expenses caused by sleet storms, floods and torna
does which amount to thousands of dollars. Then there may be
increased taxes or possible exactions from governing bodies re
garding methods of construction, operating requirements, etc.,
which add to our expenses. These costs always bear upon the
problem of dividends.
This company is and will be satisfied with a fair average
return on the money actually invested in the busness. We have
absolutely no "watered stock." A dollar has been invested in
physical property for every dollar's worth of securities issued.
'All wo ask or havo a right to expect i: such a return on the
money invested' in' our property as could be obtained on the!
money if it were invested in other business enterprises involving
In special oases in the extension of business where extra
ordinary risks are taken which entitle us to some extra profit
in consideration of such risks, we shall only ask for that return
, on the investment which any equitable commission or courti
would award us.
