Chas. Meyers, of Port Jervls,
while passing Jadwin's corner, was
struck on the head by a block of
wood which dropped from the top
of the telephone pole, located at
that place. It was very fortunate for
Mr. Meyers that his hat was strong
enough to deflect the force of the
blow, for the weight of the block
and the distance It fell was sufficient
to have fractured his skull had It
not been for the lint. The tele
phone company gave Mr. Meyer a
new hat and he went on his way
thankful for his narrow escape.

The Finest Residence In America
E. H. Harrlman's palatial resi

orders to have the work done by
the time he returned from Europe.
The walls and Interior nrc finished

About two weeks ago the Bell Tele
phone Company instructed the Consoli
dated Telephone Company to remove its
wires, from pole lines on High and East
Street, they apparently being under the
impression that they owned the pole line
in question. The Consolidated Company
very promptly informed them that the
line in question was the property of the
Electric Light Company, and on Thurs
day of last week a conference was held
between the Bell, Consolidated and Elec
trie Light officials, at which time the
Electric Light officials informed the Bell
people in no uncertain manner that the
line in question was the property of the
Electric Light Company, nnd that the
Consolidated Company had every right
to occupy the same, by agreement with
the Electric Light Company.
Notwithstanding this, without a word
of warning the Bell Company cut every
Consolidated wire in question, on Tues
day morning, thereby disconnecting
about fifty telephoncs.thinking to cripple
the Consolidated Company in this dis
trict, nnd the subscribers be forced to
co over to tho Bell Company, however
within 24 hours afterward the Consoli
