"It may appear simple to dispense with a telephone as either a desire not to be both. ered or as an economy measure, but just try to do it and see what happens. "You may think that, when you cut off your telephone, you are merely doing some- thing that concerns yourself and family. You may feel that. after all, it is your busi- ness whether you haven telephone or not. If your failure to hace the telephone incon- veniences friends and acquaintances, that is just too bad, butafter all they do not pay for the service. "Imagine your surprise, then, when the world declines to admit that you have a right to dispense with telephone service. Unable to reach you directly, by telephone, kind friends Ou not take the trouble of ma- kinu a personal call or using the United States mail, but they call up the neighbors and beg them to kindly call you into their homes to talk over their telephones! Or -they ask the neighbors to relay messages. "Even members of your own family, de spite your orders, will surreptitiously use the neighbors' telephones, The net result of all this is that you are placed in the pu- sition of saving ttre cost of a telephone at the expense of your neighbors. "You intimate to the neighbors, as po- litely as possible, that you would like to have them refuse to be bothered by tele. phone calls from your friends, You inform them that you authorize them to use any excuse they lille to.evade the necessity of acting as your messenger. "Does this make any difference? It does not. The neighbors assure you that it is no trouble, they are glad to accomodate, and insist that members of your family use the telephone as often as they like. And all of the time you know they are thinking: "Well, he ought to be paying for his own telephone service." "In conclusion, let me state the 'phone fellows kin put in the biggest 'phone they got in stock at my house any time they see fit. The sooner, the better!" (From the Lewistown, Pa., Sentinel.) TELEPHONE SERVICE IS ALL WE IiAVE TO SELL ul i|ii. l |l Make Apples Blush By turning the ultra violet rays of a mercury lamp on green apples, using a filter of some special glass, the Boyd-Thompson institute of plant re- search has been able to speed up the action of the sun and turn the green fruit into a beautiful red color in 40 to 96 hours without burning or over- h6ating. In other words, the fruit is colored quickly by improving on the sun's methods. If the peel Is too old or crushed no "color results, as Dr. .Tohn M. Arthur. In charge of this in. vestigatlon, found that only living cells of the apple peel will respond to this treatment.

"To the office," he recorded on tim Tuesday of Easter week, 1666, "but, I,ord, what a conflict I had with myself, my heart tempting me a thousand times to go abroad about some pleasure or other." For the encouragement of many he was able to add: "However, I did not budge, and, to m~ great content, did a great deal of business."

There was Battles the Kingfisher coming straight down the Laughing Brook with a min- now in his bill, and of course he was bringing It to hls babies in their secret home! In a minute or two he, Peter, would know the secret l In his excite- ment Peter started to sit up so as to see better. Just In time he remem- bered that he wasn't supposed to be there at all. If Rattles should see him he certainly wouldn't go to his home In spite of the hungry babies Peter knew must be there waiting for fish. He wouldn't be so foolish as In show where his home was by en- Then, As If Satisfied That No One Saw Him, He Shot Out Into the Air. terlng it when be knew that he was being watched. To do such a tiring wouldn't be good sense. So Just In the very nick of time Pe- ter ducked down among the grasses and, peeping between them, watched Rattles. He could see tim sharp eyes ~f Rattles looking suspiciously at both banks as he came swiftly on. Peter knew without being told that Rattles was trying to make sure tlmt no one was watching hhn, and lie cbuckled as he snuggled down a little closer to the warm earth among tbe grasses. "I wonder what be wouhl do and say If he knew he was being watched," thought he. But Rattles didn't know, and he saw nothing to mak~ him the least bit sus- picious, He came straight on until he was right opposite the big sandbank across from Peter. Then he turned and flew straight toward it, and a sec- ond later had disappeared. Peter couldn't believe it, but it was so. It seemed somehow as if that bank of sand Imd swallowed Rattles the King. fisher. He had disappeared so quick!y that Peter hadn't seen exactly where he dbl go. Peter raised his head and stared across at the sandbank. It was yellow and smooth, and nowhere could he see a hole. "Great Jumping Jupiter r' exclaimed Peter, and rubbed his eyes that he might look better. But this didn't help him any. Rattles the Kingfisher had disappeared as completely as If he never had been. Peter was still staring foolishly when he saw a few grains of sand trickle down from the very edge of tim bank where some grass and weeds hung over the edge. Without thinking why he did it, he ducked down out of sight and then peering between the grasses watched the spot from which he had seen the sand trickle down. Was there a dark spot there Just below the edge of the bank half hidden by grass and weeds~ Peter Blinked and stared again. Yes there certainly was a small dark spot there. Could it be a hole? It might be. Peter decided he would watch it. He didn't have to watch long. In fact, it was hardly a minute before he saw~ something nlove over there. He l~eld his breath. Then what do you think lie saw? Why, he saw first a big stout spear-like bill thrust out and then a head with a queer rough top. knot. It was the head of Rattles the Kingfisher! There was no doubt about this, for no one else had a head like hls. For a momen~ Battles was per- fectly still, looking this way and look- ing that way up and down tim I,augh- ing Brook.

There was ~lo doubt In Peter's mind now. tie had found the tmme of Rattles, and it was in a hole In the ground, Just as he had been told. "I never l" exclaimed Peter as he sat up and stretched, "I never! Can you bed~t that? A real bird living la a hole in.the groundl I never !" What more Peter might have said will never be known, for a movement down below the Laughing Brook caught his attention, It was Billy Mink, and It was very clear that Billy had also discovered the home of 1~ ties tim Kingfisher, HIs bright, b~ eyes were fixed on that bole in the bank, and he was swimming ~tr;,,ight across to the shore Just below, Peter wondered what would bappen next.
