Edison was born in the year 1847. He never went to school. All the education he ever got was given to him by his mother. At the age of twelve he was put to work on a railway. Having a great deal to do with newspapers, he managed to pick up the art of printing, and by and by he rescued a station master’s child which was nearly run over by a train. The station master, out of gratitude, taught him how to work the telegraph which had been introduced just then. Young Edison soon acquired great skill at the telegraph which could print its own message. That invention was found extremely useful and several telegraph companies asked him to invent other things for them which were wanted badly.
