But this subscriber like Many others fails to appreciate the manner in which people who will not subscribe for a a phone take advantage of their More progressive neighbors. This correspondent writes editor of the morning news. It is amusing to notice How the citizens of Washingtonville and surrounding country appreciate the Telephone system which was installed Here last september. All of the subscribers of the Telephone service Are greatly benefited by it. We feel As if we were moving with the times of the Century. We also congratulate the Exchange operators for their promptness in making connections and responding to All inquiries made of them.
