They tried different receivers. Receivers receive messages. Nothing worked. Exciting Sounds June 2, 1875 One evening, Aleck and Watson were working in the shop. Watson was working on the transmitter in one room. Aleck was working on the receiver in another. Suddenly, Aleck heard a weak musical noise. He ran toward Watson. 38 “What did you do, Mr. ” he asked. “Don’t change a thing. ” Watson said the transmitter had jammed. He had tried to f ix it. He had moved the part that was stuck, and a “twang” sound came over the wire.

They said it was not really useful. Mr. Hubbard and Mr. Sanders helped Aleck create the Bell Telephone Company. More Americans started buy­ ing telephones. Aleck married Mabel Hubbard in 1877. The Bell fam­ ily grew to include two daughters, Elsie and Daisy. , and spent their summers in Canada. Mabel Bell often had trouble getting her “night owl” to sleep when he was working hard on an idea. Aleck never ran out of ideas. He made an instrument to help doctors f ind metal objects in the human body.

Owls stayed awake at night, too. By this time, Aleck and Mabel were in love. Aleck hoped to marry Mabel. Aleck kept working on the telegraph. But he also had a new idea. 34 35 Aleck wanted to make a machine that let people talk over wires. He knew that air changes when sounds move through it. Vibrations make waves of sound in the air. Maybe sound waves could also change an electrical current. If they could, spoken words could be sent over a wire. Aleck and Watson began to work on a talking machine, too.
