A Useful Invention
The Sunday Daily Oklahoman con-
tained quite an article concerning an
original telephone invention perfected
by Harley Wright. Mr. Wright is the
eldest P011 of Mr. and Mrs. L.
Wright, living southwest of Cashion
Harley is a junior student in electrical
engineering at the Oklahoma Agricult-
ural and Mechanical college at Still-
water, and has ju-t recently been
granted a patent on a telephone de-
vice which completely puts a stop to
eavesdropping on party lines and whicn
will decrease (he consumption of wire
lines to one-tenth of the amount now
nt.'ce-isitated in the systems in u e. He
received this patent March 9, 1U15.
Harley has always considered eaves-
dropping on party line* a nui?ance and
was disgusted with so m>ny always
trying to hear everything that was
sai J over the line and determined, about
three years ago. to invent something
tnat would jut a stop to this t uisance.
Harley's plan is to put an additi nal
bell on each telephone, whether box or
desk arrangement, which, when rung
rerves as a block, cutting out all con-
nection on the party line. The central
operator can p ug in or ring any phone
on the line without molesting the oth-
ers. This equipment can be attached
to the inside of the box, ther< by pro-
hibiting the would-be listeis from tamp-
ering with it, as the boxes can be lock
ed. All of Harley's friends here wirh
bim abundant success with his inven-
Fishermen, Take Notice!

Despite the downpour of rain last
Thursday, the Miparshomor Male Quar-
tet of the Methodist University, of
Guthrie, together with their excellent
pianist, Mr. Thoburn Taggart, autoed
to Cashion, and gave a concert pro-
gram in Rector's hall in the evening
which was a credit to the young gent-
lemen and a pleasure to all their aud-
itors. Be9id<j qmrtet selections of a
high order, there were admirable vocal
solos and readings. Mr. D T. Morton,
reader, is fine as an impersonator.
Among the musical numbers, beside
the lovely Buona Nette from Nevin,
well rendered by Mr. Taggart, we may
make especial note of the College Med-
ley, selection from Lammermoor, and
Norton's "Juanita" as given by the
Quartet; Lehman's "If 1 Built a World
for You," sung by Mr. Fred E Miles.
Mr. Paul L Parker, son of the Rev.
L. J. Parker, has a rich, deep bass
voice under splendid control. If "the
Boys" coma again, under clear skies,
they will undoubtedly have a crowded
