Two years ago wc had plenty of materials for telephone
construction and enough trained employes.
Then war came.
Many of our highly, trained men joined the colors.
The maintenance of an efficient operating force became
constantly more difficult because of the unusual demand for
woman employes in other lines of work.
Equipment was hard to get.
The government asked us to stop all but the most essen
tial construction work.
We gave the best telephone service during the war that
' conditions would permit, but it was not and could not be as
good' as you had previously enjoyed,
We face today the period of reconstruction;
Our old employes are gradually being released from mili
tary service and are resuming their old positions.
Our equipment, weakened by two years of restricted con
struction, is gradually being expanded and replaced.
We cannot restore conditions to a pre-war standard in a
few months, but our efforts are centered on improving the ser
vice, and it is steadily getting better.

(Coprriiht, iia. tr w.t.rn Ktmvtvtt union.)
It was the most delicate and melo
dious respiration possible, but three
pairs of smiling eyes turned Involun
tarily toward Ethel Brlggs, and the
sprightllcst of the trio, Lonr Vance,
"Sneeze on Tuesday 'and kiss a
In pretty exaggerated lndlgnntlon
Kthel directed a mock resentment nt
"Improbable and Impossible!" she
declared with confidence, and the In
cident drifted Into obscurity nmld the
casunl chatter of the hour.
Ethel was a heart-free, winsome be
ing, on a week's visit to Alda Prescott.
There were two other girl guests and
Lorn was one of tho"m. A fourth wns
expected (hat evening or on the train
next morning. Ethel had nnnounced
her Intention of meeting her nt the
depot. Lorn, Alda nnd Dora Wnyne
stole off to n movie show about 7
o'clock. Ethel wnlted hnlf nn hour
and went out Into the hall to put on
n wrap and a hat, to find Lora had
assumed tho fancy of using those
pnrts of her wardrobe, leaving her
own picture hat and audaciously lond
checked wrap In their place. Friendly
exchange of this chnracter was a com
mon feature with the group, nnd there
wns nothng better to do than to ac
cept the situation nnd mnke the best
of lt. Tho depot 'was only a few
squares distant nnd Ethel soon reached
lt. She remained outsldo on the plat
form, walking up down Its length,
nnd rousing to vigilance nnd Inter
est ns tho train, comprised "of three
conches, came to a stop.
Ethel centered her nttentlon on the
two rear cars. She was somewhat
disappointed as, watching the car
platform and scanning the Interior of
the conches through the windows, she
ninde out nothing of her expected
"She will come on the morning
train," decided Ethel, and wns about
to start away when the last passen
ger of the smoker swung off, cnught
a side view of the wrap that en
veloped Ethel, hastened toward her,
threw one arm about her and Ira
printed a warm,N resoundlhg kiss on
Ethel uttered a suppressed scream.
U some one had fired a cannon ball
nt her she could not hnvo been more
astounded. With vim. she tore her
self free from the embrace of the
new arrival. Her eyes glowed with
poorly suppressed Indignation, her
lovely face assumed an nngry flush.
"How dare you I" she quavered, and
her dainty fists clenched tightly. She
had swung quite within the radius of
tho platform light. The stranger re
ceded two steps as though ho had been
driven back by a blow. His face was
n void of consternation and embar
rassment. "Thunder I" he exclaimed, and the
genuineness of his emotion wns evi
denced by the .fact that he blnnkly
dropped tho satchel he carried, and
stood rooted, staring at Ethel like a
pprson turned to stone.
Ethel was tingling all over, trem
bling, on lire with a resentfulncss she
wns too ladylike to express In words.
Then, strange vicissitude of girlish
emotion, she felt the smarting tears
come to her eyes. Angrily striving to
suppress them she briskly rubbed the
tell-tale pink spot on her cheek with
her handkerchief. She shot another
wrnUiful glnnce at the Stranger. Wns
he audacious or simply n clown? nis
eyes were riveted upon her. nis fnco
was n vast blank. He stood like n
statue, unmindful of the fallen
satchel, like a person fairly hypno
tized. Still, there was nothing of de
finnco, ridicule or rudeness In his eyes.
Ho tried to speak.
"Regret mlstnko pardon "
wcro parts of disconnected sentences
thnt floated to Ethel's hearing, but,
with a pettish, spiteful air, Ethel hur
ried across the street. What should
she tell hen friends? Should she tell
them anything at all?
She entered the house, flushed,
trembling nnd excited. The girls had
not yet returned. Somehow she could
not get her mind nway from the Inci
dent of tho evening. Elhel roamed
about the house, dlsturbod and rest
less. When there enmo a ring nt the
door bell Rhc hastened to respond to
It, hoping It was Lora and tho others
returned from their mild evening dis
sipation. Ethel opened the door. It
wns her turn now to pose stupefied.
There stood the mun of the depot,
the owner of tho Hps that had swept
her dainty cheek I
"Thunder 1" ho again uttered, and
beforo he could speak further, and
before Ethel comd arouse herself, gay
voices and lively, tripping footsteps
'announced the coming of Lora and
"Why, Bartleyl" exclaimed Lora,
rushing up to. the stranger nnd kissing
"Girls, my brother Miss Prescott,
Bnrtley, nnd Miss Vernon, nnd our
denrest, cleverest of all, Ethel Brlgg.o,"
Introduced Lorn, and Ethel under
stood, but In tho face of a calamity
for she sneezed!
"Kiss a stranger!" whispered bright
eyed Lora mischievously, and Bartley
Vnnco heard nfl well, and his fnco
reflected the damask hue of Lora's,
and In her forgiving smile ho fancied
he read a presage of closer friendship
In the future.
