N January 1, 1926, this company will take over
by purchase the property of the Penn State Tele-
This will bring about the elimina-
tion of the wasteful duplication of telephone facilities
in a large part of central Pennsylvania.
The work of physically consolidating the two plants
is completed at the following points and former Penn State
subscribers in these places will receive full Bell service
beginning January 1:
Altoona Centre Hall Lewisburg Milton Shenandoah
Annville Frackville Lebanon Minersville Spring Mills
Ashland Girarduille Mt. Gretna Orwigsburg State College
Bellwood Hollidaysburg Mahansy City Palmyra Strasburg
Boalsburg Lock Haven Millersville Schuylkill Haven Tyrone
At the following places, it will require some time to
effect a unification of the service but every effort is
being made to push the work to completion:
Bellefonte Gap Lancaster Quarryville Sunbury
Christiana Jersey Shore Lititz Shamokin Northumberland
East Petersburg Kulpmont Manheim Snow Shoe Tamaqua
Ephrata Lampeter Mt. Carmel St. Clair Tremont.
There are certain toll changes of which the sub-
scribers affected have been notified. Bills will be sent
out in January in accordance with the regular billing
practices of the company.
We appreciate the responsibility which rests on us in
furnishing a complete telephone service in these com-
munities. It is our aim to merit the confidence of all
of our subscribers—old and new—by rendering the best
telephone service that is humanly possible.

a friend zontributes the following:
Now at last her journey’s ended,
And all cares have been laid down;
She has heard the welcome message,
Enter in, thy work is done.
So, dear mother, while we miss you,
And we gaze with tear-dimmed eyes,
‘Well we know that thou art waiting
In that home beyond the skies.
Beyond the chilly winds and gloomy skies,
Beyond death’s portal there is a land where
‘beauty never dies.
‘Whose life is never doomed by shade but
‘Where death at last shall set me free, and
swift to him my soul shall fiy.
Oh, may my shout triumphant be,
I am the Lord’s for evermore.
