-====== Telephone Codes ====== 
-The first published telephone test was John Hilliard'​s "​Twentieth Century Telepathy"​ in The February 1905 //​[[http://​​display/​38603/​The+Sphinx/​6|Sphinx]]//,​ Vol. 3 No. 12, p. 150. Bill Kalush has found a reference to Houdini having performed such a routine in the 1890s. 
-Rufus Steele'​s //​[[http://​​display/​15021/​Card+Tricks+You+Will+Do/​23|Card Tricks You Will Do]]// (1926, p. 22) includes "Mind Reading by Telephone"​ by Bill Bournau, which has the earliest instance, discovered to date, of coding by including or excluding actions made by the spectator during the call to the medium. This predates Read's "​Calostro Act" by six years, and Annemann'​s "Weird Wire" by twelve.
