and the Atlantic coast navy stations.

through the ether. At intervals the
instruments sparked off N. A. R. (the
call for Key West, 975 miles away.) No
official messages were sent but the
results of the test were noted at all '
stations on the Atlantic coast.
Covers 3,000 Miles. 1
The radius of the new plant will be
about 3,000 miles. This range prob- 1
ably the acme of wireless operation, :
will be attained gradually and it may
be weeks before the big plant is "tuniea
up" to its. highest efficiency. Communication
with the Pacific coast will
be attempted only at night for
the present. Later on throughout the
day, the secretary of the navy at his!
desk in Washington will be within
instant communication with Key West,
Guantanamo, Colon, the naval coaling
station, the winter manoeuvre grounds |
and all Atlantic stations. When the I
system is work perfecfty and the chain
of stations is completed,. Washington
will be in touch with Hawaii, Sanoa,
Guam, the Philippines and Pearl Harbor.
The completed system will cost
about $1,000,000. The seas will not
longer be a wilderness for the navy.
Ships, because of weaker equipment,
can not talk with the powerful plant at
Arlington, but they may relay messages
to the various stations for transmission
Three Huge Towers.
Three huge towers on the brow of
a hill overlooking the Potomac and ;
dwarfing the Washington monument
hold the aerials. In their construction
some skilled iron workers who
bad braved death on many skyscrapers
declined to work at such dizzy ,
heights. One tower is 600 feet above
the hill, where its base rests, and that
is 200 feet above the river. The others
measure 450 feet. At
tbe base of the towers are the <
sound proof workrooms; quarters for <
operators and barracks for the ma- i
rines who will guard the towers.
Within a year the towers are expe-cted
to be talking with the Philippines by
relays through Guam and Hawaii. :
WdtJiin the next few days the station
will attempt communication with the
powerful station at Clifden, Ireland, *
the nearest working plant on the other *
6ide of the Atlantic. Officers are hope- '
ful of the outcome.
* To Bridee Atlantic*
Constant communication is. now be- '
ing maintained by a commercial company
-with Clifden and Cape Race,
New Foundland, and other stations are
being constructed for the purpose of
bridging the Atlantic with aerial intelligence.
A commercial company
virtually has completed the erection
of powerful plant at Sayville, L. I.,
which will have as its European terminus
a station of similar design in
the vicinity of Berlin. Still another
near New York is projected with its
sister plant in Norway.
The Arlington station, however, i
marks, the most advanced step thus j
far taken in the establishment of regular
and steady communication by
wireless over long distances, although
the records of the army and navy department
disclos-e many "freak" messages
sent and received over great
spaces. Thes*\ however, were exchangd
under the most favorable conditions
and for the most part are re
garded as accidents.

PROPOSED NEW COUNTY.
Form County of Musgroye, the Name
in Honor of Mary tfnsgroYe, and
to Commemorate Battle.
Clinton, Oct. 28.?A committee has
been appointed from the chamber of
commerce to take charge of the proposed
establishment of a new county
in this part of the State, of which
Clinton will be the county seat. The
proposed county will include portions
of Laurens, Spartanburg, Union and
N'ewberry. In gea-ral, the lines will
run straight, except when a stream
Acts as the boundary. The territory
as it is drawn on the plan will em3race
about 250 square miles of Laurens
county, nearly 100 miles of Newberry,
about 40 of Union and 30 of |
Spartanburg. It will contain a population
of approximately 30,000 people
and assessed property in the neighborhood
of millions of dollars. The principal
towns will be Clinton, Whitmire,
Renno, Cross Hill, Mountville, Cross
Anchor, Cross Keys, Goldville and
It is proposed to call the new coun- J
ty Musgrove. It will contain the bat-1
tie ground of Musgrove Mill, where!
Mary Musgrove, heroine of the Revolution,
witnessed, from her perch in
a tall tree, the struggle of the Patriots
against the British army, and witnessed
the defeat of the British and
the glorious "victory of the- forefathers.
As there is not a coainty in the State
named for a -woman the people here
wish that in honor of the noble women
of the land, and especially in honor of
the heroine of the women of the Revolution,
that the new county be named I
for Mary Musgrove and for the battle j
of Musgreve Mill; thus doubly commemorating
the heroism of the noble
women, and further memorializing the
greatest historic event in the area of
the proposed <new county.
Of the thirty thousand population in i
the new county about one-iourtn win ^
reside in townsi, a larger proportion
of town population than now exists '
in any of the four counties save one.
It will contain forty miles of the Sea- ^
board Air Line ajid some eighteen
miles of the Columbia, Newberry and
Laurens railroad, also seven banks* ,
five cotton mills and two oil mills.
It is worthy of note that Clinton ii
peculiarly fitted to furnish. to the ne^
county of Musgrove an ideal county
seat. Clinton is situated on a high T
ridge, tlue highest point in the county. r
It is an extremely healthy and rapidly 1
growing city. It is hdghly moral, amd k
the people are generally noted for ed- a
ucation and honest business. No oth- r

the matter of credit of its business a
houses, as it ranks absolutely first in *
this. It is a desirable town1 from an e
educational standpoint Here is located
the Presbyterian College of South
Carolina, the college for young men }
sustained by the Presbyterians of this
State. The largest Presbyterian or- ?
phanage in the- United States, the p
Thornwell orphanage, is located here, n
A. first-class graded and high school p
is maintained. About iorty proi?=wui? 0
and teachers are employed in Clinton. B
Three cotton mills, with over 80,000 b
spindles and nearly 2,000 looms, consume
much more cotton than is pro- p
duced by Clinton's trade area. This t
results in a high price being offered b
for cotton. Clinton is within three t;
miles of the centre of the area wmou i
it invites to come into the new coun- e
At present the people of Renno and C
Whitmir? must come to Clinton on the ii
train and then go to Newberry, and c
those who live in Mountville and Cross p
Hill must come to Clinton before go- c
ing to Laurens. The new county seat p
will be from twenty-one to three miles is
nearer each of the towns, by rail, than t

' Clinton pledges to build a brick or t
ston# court boose and jail, to furnish t
the new county with a county home s
for the poor and a farm, and pay all e
the expenses connected with the "bringing
of the records from other
counties here, and to support only
those men for office who will work t
for the good of the whole county. At I
