little pleasant fiction of mine, but
be assured they are pure history.
Hut from' this time on, our
wonders, and our wonderful men
come in groups, and I am obliged
to speak of Cyrus West, Field,
Alexander (lialiain iScll ami
Thomas Alva Edison, in the same
sentence. Ask me to furnish a
list of illustrious names for the
Hall of Fame, and you shall have
it by return mail. Field's ocean
cables have changed the social
and commercial relations of the
world. Hell's telephones have be
come familiar to us as the post
office, and almost as indispensa
ble. Edison we call the wizard.
He never surprises us. We expect
anything ami everything from
him. He has given us all the
music of the world. From grave
to gay; from lively to severe, lie
makes us laugh, or cry at will. I
was in Chicago when the tele,
phone first came into use, and it
was long before people ceased to
wonder at its mysteries. On a
cold night in winter, at midnight,
a Chicago lady living on the north
side telephoned to her family
physician, who lived on the south
side, '-'Come at once, my baby has
Mhe croup." It was a cold night
to go out, perhaps thought the
doctor, the lady is mistaken. He
answered back, "Let your baby
cry into the telcpl c." When
the doctor heard the little hoarse
cry he called back, "Your baby
has nothing but a bad cold, wrap
if ii warm and 1 will see it in
the morning." This little story;
simple as it seems to us now, was
told all over the Cnitcil States.
I must not leave this interest
ing field without speaking of
wireless telegraphy. We need
not be ashamed to confess that
we had no faith whatever in such
a wild chimera. We were not
born testenlay it was almost
an insult to our intelligence. "o.
no, gentlemen, you cannot pro
ject messages into space without
wires, or cables. And yet. tin
touching, pathetic story of brave
.Jack Inns, and his wonderful
work, was not so long ago. The

or cables, caught up ami answer

in any experession regtarding
this divine, man made providence
brave Jack Mins has told the
whole story. San Francisco con
ceived the idea of talking with
.Japan hy wireless telegraphy,
and seven hundred miles away.
San Francisco is familiar with
great enterprise. We remember
that the war steamer Oregon was
built in that city, and that she
made her wonderful trip of thir
teen thousand miles, ami was
sound as a nut at the end of the
vflyage. San Francisco gets the
Panama Canal completion jubi
lee, but I must tell you about the
wireless talk with .Japan. The
message was projected into space
at half the distance the message
was caught by two steamers and
repeated to the coast of .Japan.
Thus Kan. Francisco talked with
Japan one hour with only one
relay in five thousand seven hun
We are told that I!oaz oidered
his reapers to fall occasional
handfuls of grain for Ruth the
gleaner. I do not know any one
who has bee nslyly dropping
golden grain for me, but my
gleanings seem almost as rich and
bounteous as the first harvest.
I have been talking into space,
projecting messages into space,
and now strange voices are coin
ing from out immeasurable space,
and uttering sublime words not
lawful for man to hear. A !
little girl had been taught that
we all were made of the dust
the earth. One (lav the family
was lrazimr upon a wild whir
wind of dust, when the lilt!" oik
quietly said : " I think (Jod is go
ing to make a little boy."
