to make another combined assault on the
caucus program and try to force action
before adjournment, but tho regulars In
sisted they had enough votes to block any
further rebellion. Both Republicans and
Democrats ore anxious to get away next

iously crippled tho insurgents.

therefore, contends that It's his right to
ellmlnato as many dogs as possible to pre

As he has nothing more serious to do, he
has been carrying out his antldog cam

doesn't attack a dog with a club or a brick.
Neither does he feed It poison. His proc

he had seen Burke around a number of In
Jii'ed dogs In the neighborhood. He took
him before Magistrate Baker.
Jim admitted his hatred for dogs and
confessed that he first got them mad and led
them on a chase In front of cars and
wagons, so that they would be either killed
When the prisoner declared he did this for
tho sake of mankind, the Magistrate
couldn't see It that way.
"Even a. dog has a. right to live until It
does something which deprives it of that
pleasure," said the Judge, "so, for the sake

ACK thirty years ago, when the tele
phone pioneers were just setting
forth on their long path of experience
and progress, bright young boys of
fourteen or fifteen were engaged to
operate the crude contrivances that
were then called switchboards. But
their lanpiiape unci nrmnnpr' wow nnf-
rageous, and tha expediency of em
ploying young women operators was
To the earnest, studied effort of the
young.women at the switchboards the busi
ness owes much. Telephone operating, to
day, in the Bell System means more than the
self-control and voice modulation we have
come to know so well; all is not mere rule
and rote. Back of it there is personality and
a training of the most careful and scientific
Public requirement and with all right demands a
maximum of speed and efficiency with a minimum of
error. So came to be established the Telephone Schools of In
struction, of which there is one in constant session at 406
Market Street "Here each embryo operator must first show
herself to be "well poised, gracious andlert. The telephone
'language," the voice inflections and finally the intricacies of
the apparatus itself are taught and individually mastered.
After the "theory" there is practice at a real switchboard,
but one without connection to the outside world. The "subscribe
ers" are instructresses and the operator-to-be here trains her fin
gers and her mind by handling "dummy" calls of the hundreds of
varied sorts that will later come to her Though each student oper
ator is paid throughout the several weeks of her instruction she
does not take a position at a central office switchboard until after
having proven her proficiency at the School
This consummate care and detail in the training of operators
insures to the Bell subscriber a service that is as near perfect as
human skill and effort can make it
