    Sufficient time must be given, however, so that all train crews can receive the changed orders at the next station they arrived at. The railways then had to create their own Telegraph Departments to take over the construction, maintenance and operating functions previously undertaken by the telegraph companies. The earliest and most widely used visible signal in telephone practice was the annunciator, having a shutter adapted to fall when the magnet is energized. This is the difference between vowel sounds and other musical tones on the one hand and all unmusical sounds or noises on the other. The Webb C.
