The Telephone. Operation Puzzles. The telephone remains the acme of all electrical marvels. No other de vice- does so much with so little en ergy. -No other engine operates with a breath. Nothing is simpler to oper ate and nothing is more difficult to comprehend. Even the inventors, who have lived with it for a third of a century, still regard it with amazement. It can be used by a child, yet it can not be explained by any man of na tural science or philosopher of the world. .

"No," lihe replied. "I only know what is done. I do not know how it is ac complished." How can a child's voice compel the vibration of a million pounds of cop per wire, stretched 1600 miles between Denver and New York? How can three conversations be held at the same time on only two pairs of wires? How ca...
