"Please, ma'am," was the prompt reply, "he doesn't live with us. My mamma supports me." "Well, then," asked the teacher, "how does your mother earn her liv- ing?" "Why," replied the little girl, in an artless manner, "she gets paid for staying away from father." EXACTLY.- Wife (at 1 a.m., angrily): Don't try any evasion with me, sir. Where have you been?

The older we are the more difficult it is to readjust our- selves to new conditions, to take on new friends, and to be happy in new surroundings. Winter or summer, at work or during vacation, I awake at about the same hour, and try as I will I cannot long be contentsd. I must be up and at something. "it Is a habit I learned, with difficulty I must admit, long, long ago on the 'farm. but, having learned It, I am a slave to it. I want the same things for breakfast. Wherever I am, I am a little uneasy unless I am in my ewn chah'. I am contented only wlmn i have my old friends about me. And yet I know full well that one should learn to be and to do otherwise, for sooner or later readjustments will have to be made.

He has a wife and a famEy of his own and is a self. reliant and successful man, but there has always been mother to go to when he was depressed or in trouble or felt the need of sympathy. He is as com- pletely lost as a child without her. He wanders about like a strauger in a strange land. not knowing what to do or where to go. He knew that the change must come. sooner or later. but he bad not prepared himself for It. Fuller and his wife were Insep: arable He was a shy man, who held himself In the background in social affairs. No one else could bring him out or put him in as good light aa she could do. He quite sparkled when she was about, but without her he was silent, Ill-at-ease, and not at his best. She died suddenly when still a young woman, but he could not make the readjustments necessary to a life without her. He was like a ves- sel drifting helplessly in a heavy sea.

An historic occurrence illustrating the wonderful progress in long dis- tance transmission took place on January 25, 1915, thirty-nine years after the first outdoor trial over two miles of wire, when Dr. Bell, in New York, talked with the same Mr. Watson, in San Francisco, over the transcontinental line of the Bell System, 3,400 miles long. It is now possible to telephone by wire cir- cuits from British Columbia to Cuba, a distance of 7,000 miles. The latest extension of the range of telephone speech was the open- ing, early in 1927, of public tele- phone service between America and England by radio telephone con- necting with the land wires at ether end.
