Over thirty years ago, the

So much for purposes J They are mere words except
when backed up by performances.
The Bell System stands to-day the greatest agency of
wire communication in the entire world. It lays no claim
to perfection of service, for human beings will sometimes
lapse, and steel and copper fail. But it does assert that
in speed, accuracy and cordiality it has progressed with,

a still further improvement to-morrow,
That it has spanned the continent and sped the spoken

but it is even more than that in the countless little things
