Nobody knows when the first person learned how to strike a spark to light a camp- fire But it must nave happen- ed many thousands of years ago Strange to say, the original invention was not much improved until about a couple of centuries ago Nobody came up with anything like our modern matches until the 1820s What's more, these first chemical matches were very smelly and far from depen dable Nowadays, we strike a match in a moment with no trouble at all But in pioneer days, our neat chemical matches had not been invented Then many people used a flint and steel gadget to strike a spark and it often took half a hour to light a fire This method of striking sparks was in vogue for ages before anyone thought of something better Scouts, of course, know that it is possible to light a camp fire by rubbing two dry sticks together The rubbing is fric- tion and friction creates warmth Eventually, the rubb ing of dry sticks creates enough warmth to ignite a pile of dry leaves and start a campfire A modern match also works by friction, but chemicals are used to do the job in a jiffy The first effort to graduate from flint and steel tinder box was made in the 1780s Fric- tion was not used in these ancestral matches Instead, a small strip of twisted paper was tipped with phosphorous Since this hot-tempered chemical ignites in the presence of oxygen, the paper twist was sealed in a glass tube When somebody wanted a light the tube was broken the oxygen in the air rushed in and united with the phosphorous to start a fiery flame It was invented in France in 1781 and called the phosphoric candle or the eternal match Five years later it was sur- passed by an Italian invention called the pocket luminary (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co 1973) by Charles schulz ssssssii III ABNER by al capp YOU PROMISED ME.

During the day you can save money by making DIRECT DISTANCE DIALING a business economy policy, rather than calling person to person. And after 6 p.m. most DDD calls can save you even more. Dial Direct calls go at the low station-to-station rate, and save you a lot of time in the bargain. Even if you only make a few long distance calls, the savings can add up to dollars a month. Why not have an ACT Service Adviser conduct a DDD seminar for your staff in your office? It need only take 20 minutes. But it can make a difference to your company's phone bill!
