A Network of Wireless Lines.
One of the most ambitious schemes
in which wireless telegraphy is to bear
an important part looks to perfecting
a system of transmission by which all
the British islands in the Pacific shall
be connected with one another and
with British Columbia. This includes
not merely the relatively small islands,
but areas of such magnitude as Aus
tralia and New Zealand. An American
engineer has the matter in charge.
and having just returned from a tour
of inspection over the region men
tioned he reports the enterprise to be
entirely feasible, and his report has
been transmitted to the British colo
nial secretary. In addition to the
daring nature of the undertaking,
what will excite special wonder is its
amazing cheapness. The engineer
mentioned estimates that the total
cost will not exceed $500,000, and in
view of the extraordinary benefits an
ticipated that is a trifling sum. Of
course no details are given out, but
when one reflects on the vast extent
of the Pacific ocean, says the Troy
(N. Y.) Times, something of the char
acter of the plan may be conjectured.
The advantage of direct communica
tion between British colonies without
control of the apparatus by any other
than British hands is of course at once
apparent, and if the project is carried
out successfully it will add a conspicu
ous triumph to what has already been
wrought by "wireless."
Cigarettes in the Navy.
In his annual report, Surgeon Gen
eral of the Navy Presley M. Rixey
recommends that an order be issued
by the navy department forbidding
the use of cigarettes by all persons
in the navy under 21 years of age. it
is stated that in three months the
crews of the battleship Missouri (700
men) used 1,500 books of cigarette pa
pers, 1,200 pounds of smoking tobacco
and 37,000 cigarettes. None the less,
remarks the Medical Fortnightly, 8,000
cigarettes and 15,000 pounds of candy,
together with 1,000 po'unds of navy
plug chewing tobacco and 30,000
cigars, were loaded on the Culgoa in
the Brooklyn navy yard as a part of
the canteen supply.
A new Metropolitan Opera house
prima donna is Elizabeth Parkinson, a
young soprano who has created a real
sensation in Paris and London. She
is a protege of Mine. Melba, who pre
dicts a great future for the western
songster. Her life story thus far has
been one of incessant toil and a hard,
bitter struggle for recognition. In her
fight for musical laurels MIle. Parkina
-she is billed that wray now, with
Kansas City, her birthplace, far in the
background-has had the financial aid
and good counsel of an older sister, a
school teacher; it is this self-sacrific

diva's success possible-the sister andi
The ancestry of the late king of
Sweden Is a practical H'lustration of
the pungent saying: "The first king
was a fortunate soldier. He who
serves his country has no need of an

much in this practical age as results,
and he who can bring results about,
be he king or peasant, is the man of
It has been discovered that trunks
were used by the Romans in the time
of Caesar. There is no reason, how
ever, to believe that any Roman lady
of that period took more than seven
trunks with her when she went away
from home to be gone a week or two.
New York blackmailers have formed
a combination and threaten to hiss
grand opera singers unless they are
bought off. The opera singers might
turn the tables on the blackmailers by
accepting hissing as a compliment.
Women have been appealed to not
to shop over eight hours. Their
thoughtful husbands in leaving small

see to that.
