Communities can build their own lines

reasonable rates from existing compan-
ies. It is a considerable undertaking,
but the country is already dotted with
independent telephone exchanges thus
established, which seem to be etuineir i_\
The first tiling to do 111 organizing a
telephone company is to agitate the
question and make the neighbornood tin
derstand its great value; that it is a good
business investment; a public improv
ment; a distinct social advantage and
positive personal convenience; that
telephone in the house enables one to
call the butcher, tbe baker, the grocer
and to bring one into quick touch with
the railroads, the telegraph, tiie postolfice
or the bank. The telephone enables the
busy farmer to transact business at the
farm that would otherwise necessitate
his absence from home. In a large
measure it eliminates the only strong ob-
jection to farm life—isolation. With a
telephone in tbe house the farmer's wife
is never alone. Every subscriber i*. as
