Sherman, tells of the coming of inventions which the present generation thinks of as ordinary: T. C. Sherman, of Algona, well known in Fort Dodge, tells, in a letter to friends here, of a telephone connection he and Mrs. Sherman made Christmas morning with a son and daughter in New York and a son in Hollywood, so that all could talk together at the same time. That caused Mr. 'Sherman to recall the beginnings of the telephone and ho gives an interesting •account of what quite likely was ihe first long distance "telephone" .between Fort Dodge and Hurn- iboldt. Mr. Sherman writes: i "I recall that 62 years ago as id boy of 9, my father sent me on a. ,saddlo horse post haste to Hum- iboldt to summon a doctor, and itold me if I could not secure the only doctor there at that, time to igo to the. general store of P. H. iPope, where some contrivance was iiisod to talk over a wire to Fort (Dodge. "The local doctor was out on a .call and I told Mr. Pope my di,lemma. HP took me to the rear ,nf I he store where an object re- isomblinK a toy drum was fastened to tho wall and connected by out- ,siclc wire with the R. W. Crawford .store in Fort Dodge. By tapping ,nn this miniature drum the tap iwould bo answered by Fort Dodge and by shouting against the drum I ho words would bo heard in Fort ,l")odgc, .some times and some limes ,not. This was (lie bognining of the telephone and in tho. short 71 years of my life T have seen its development. T hesitate to think what the development of the next 70 years will be."
