Sending a telegram from most cities after the war is over will be as simple as dropping a letter in a mailbox.

This machine, known as a "Telefax," sends messages automatically so that the receiver gets a faxsimile copy of the original telegram.

The telefax is fast and 100 per cent accurate.

Morse could scarcely have foreseen such developments in the industry which he made possible by his invention of the telegraph a century ago, when he sent his first message, "What Hath God Wrought!" on May 24, 1844.
