Timberville, Tuesday March 9, 1920.
Pandemonium reigned in telephone circles here Friday morning when an electric light wire became entangled with the telephone line wires. Bells rang incessantly for about four hours and talking over the lines was practically impossible. The power plant is about three miles distant and no lineman could be found for some time. However, nervous persons were at last able to take their fingers from their ears.
