THE LAMONI TELEPHONE COMPANY

The Lamoni Telephone Company, which was promoted by W. A. HOPKINS, was incorporated in 1897. The line extends through Decatur and Ringgold counties, Iowa, and Harrison county, Missouri, and through its connections with the Bell Telephone Company, gives its subscribers long distance as well as local service. The company employs about five girls, a number of lineman and two or three men who assist Mr. FRANCE in the office work. The present [1915] officers are: Charles FRANCE, president; W. A. GRENAWALT, vice president; Dr. W. J. MATHER, secretary; and G. H. DERRY, treasurer. The above named gentlemen also constitute the board of directors.
