THE "WHY" OF RATES
A railroad may haul a carload of flour at a cheaper
cost per sack than if only one-tenth as much were ship
ped, but it costs us d great deal more per telephone to
operate an exchange of 5,000 subscribers than one of
only a thousand.
In an exchange of 5,000 subscribers, every tele
, phone uses is given an opportunity to use his telephone
ten times as much as in an exchange of a thousand
This condition would make the operating expense
and maintenance cost of every telephone and line in the
larger exchange much higher than in the smaller one.
Then, too, in the larger exchange, telephones ever
age farther from the central office, necessitating more
wire per telephone.
Also, as more telepeones are added to an exchange,
the uniting of every telephone with every other one in
creases the individual cost enormously.'
But the service of the larger exchange is worth a
great deal more.

HOW A RELIANCE
Great Feature of the Policies Is
ued by the Reliance Life In-.
surance Co. of Pittsburg.
John M. Patterson, a railroad
.conductor, of Sedalia, Missouri,
took a policy with the Reliance
for 12,000 on the 15-Year Endow
ment Plan, April 13, 1907. A
note by the inspector received at
the time says: "Mr. Patterson
has a family; he is a healthy,
In September, 1907, Mr. Pat
terson had a stroke of paralysis.
which totally disabled him. Sub
sequently his Reliance Policy was
either destroyed or lost, as it was
considered of no value. Recently
Mr. W. L. Phinps. of the Renew
ing Division, while in Sedalia, dis
covered this situation. The at
tention of Mrs. Patterson was
called to the fact that her hus
band's policy had not lapsed, but
was still in force under the Total
and Permanent Disability Clause.
Her own letter is more eloquent
praise of the Reliance policy than
anything else can be. It says:
"Mr. Scott Dear Sir: Mr.
Patterson is unable to write. He
was running out of Jefferson
City at Ihe time he took out the
policy, and I did not know any
thing about it. The policy is
either lost or misplaced. I feel
sure Mr. Patterson will never be
able to work again. He has been
under the doctor's care nearly all
the time since September, 1907.
It will surely be a great benefit
to me and the children. Please
advise me what to do. We,
neither of us, knew of the Dis
ability Clause. It Is very kind of
you to look us up and tell us of It,
and I surely appreciate it. This
has been a trying ordeal to me to
see my husband fighting so hard
to regain his health. Thanking
you again for your kindness. Re
