"Radiogram."
Messages Bent and received by what
is called wireless-telegraphy are here
after to be "radiograms" to tho navy
department Tho word Is certainly
an Improvement ion the clumsy "wire
less," but It is not particularly good,
since radiation la by no means pe
culiar to this form of communi
cation, Indeed, there is some excuse for de
nying that In It there are any "rays"
at all, In the sense commonly given
to that term.
"Telegrams," as originally sent,
really were written from a distance,
but In the new process the man who
sends the message creates no record
of It at the point of receiving, and he
Is therefore hardly a "radiographer,"
and no more is the man who takes
the sounds he hears and records them
as letters,
"Radiogram" is too obviously a
mere adoption of "telegram." The two
processes have little in common, and
though both make use of electricity,
the nature of the uses ia entirely dif
ferent. At least it seems to be; no
body knows very clearly what is done
la either case.
HELEN GOULD BRIDE
OF FINLEUSHEPARD
Only 100 Guests Present For
The Simple Ceremony-Gives
Dinner To The "Bread Liners"
Of Bowery Mission On Wed
ding Day.
Miss Helen Miller Gould, the world's
greatest woman philanthropist, was
married to Finlcy J. Shephard, of St.
Louis, last Wednesday at her home,
Lyndhurst, In New York. The wedding
was very quiet and simple, there being
only 100 guests present, who were rel
atives of the bride and groom. The
house was artistically decorated In
American Beauties, white roses and
potted plants that came rom the bride's
own conservatory. Miss Gould had all
the employees from her Fifth Avenue
homo and those at Lyndhurst, even to
the man who tended the cows in the
pasture, who was 62 years old, to see
her married. They stood in the hall
way and saw as much as the big folks,
later they were eacb given an envel
ope containing a bank note. The bride's
wedding gown was of duchess ivory
satin with a three and a half yard
train. It was trimmed in rose point
lace and seed pearls. The veil was at
tached to her hair with a bunch of or
ange blossoms and extended the length
of her train. She w re a string c
pearls, an heirloom of her mother's
which encircled a diamond pendant
with an almost invisible platinum
chain, a gift of Mr. Shephards. The
bride carried lilies of the valley. Her
nnly attendants were her two little
nieces, Helen and Dorothy Gould, who
acted as flower girls. Mr. Louis Shep
hard was best man for his brother.
Mr. and Mrs. Shephard did not leave
immediately on their wedding trip, but
will go later to Europe. When they re
turn they will make their home at
Lyndhurst and Mrs. Shephard will con
tinue her life work.
In the midst of her many duties in
preparing for her wedding Miss Gould
had time to think of others. She want
ed to do something for Bowery Mis
sion in New York, so she gave to the
"Bread Liners" a feast on her wed
ding night. There were 2,000 hungry
mouths fed and as many hearts made
glad by the beautiful act of this noble
woman. Mrs. Shephard was the recip
ient of many handsome wedding pres
en s, numbers of them being from Y.
M. C. A's Railroad, army and navy
men, who wished to express their grat
itude for the kindness she had done
them.

to leave Cloverport, Mrs. Heyser resigned
her place as teacher of the Ladies' Bible
Class, (the T. E. L. Class.) The class
regrets exceedingly the loss of her as

regular teacher.

GRAND
AND
HIKING
Will Be the Latest Invention ol
Thomas A. Edison Talking
Motion Pictures Have Been
the Work of 37 Years.
Thomas A. Edison is indeed a wizard.
In an interview with the New York
representative of the Denver News,
Mr. Edison said he believes the end o
the present legitimate stage is at hand
as a result of his newest invention, a
talking motion picture machine, called
the Kinetophone, which proved success
ful in a demonstration a few days ago.
The News Interview follows: The In
ventor explained why he thinks the
present $2 show must give way to the
cheaper form of amusement, which, he
declared, will give almost as much as the
other for one-twentieth of. the price.
There will be no more barnstormers,
either, because no one will be willing
to pay for second-class acting when the
foremost stars are performing for the
"talkies" andean be seen and heard
for a dime. "Is the machine perfect
ed?" Edison was asked. "Nothing is
perfect," replied Edison, "but it works.
It will be put in operation in Brooklyn
inside of thirty days." "What does
your new invention do?'' "It delivers
at the exact instant of occurrence on
the film any sound made at the moment
such action took place. Every word
uttered by the actors is recorded and
delivered in time with the action; the
creaking of a gate, a whistle, the noise
of hoof-beats, even tho click of cocking
a revolver, comes apparently from the
scene and in unison with the motion."
"Howls it done?" "The phonograph,
which is placed behind the scene, is
wired to the picture machine, which
may be a hundred yards away. The
speed of the talking parts acts as a
brake on the film, so that neither can
get ahead of the other. There are
special records which run as long as
the film lasts. Other records can be
made to come Into place successfully
and the performance may be carried
out through a whole play. Whole
operas will be rendered and the films
can even be colored by hand if the dis
play of color is needed. Small towns
whose yearly taxes would not pay for
three pe:formances of the Metropolitan
Opera Company, can see and heat the
gteatest stars in the world for 10 cents
and will pay because of the volume of
business. We want democracy in our
amusements. It is safe to pay that only
one cut of every fifty persons in the
United States has any right to spend
the price asked for a theater ticket."
"How long did it'take to work out the
plan for talking motion pictures?" was
asked. "Thirty-seven years," replied
Edison, slowly. It is all of that time
since I made a motion picture show in
side a box by dropping the succession
of drawings rapidly and attaching a
record to two other tubes." "And was
that successful?" "Not the kind of
success I wanted. Wnat I want must
affect the whole people. Actors will
have to leave the legitimate stage to
work for the movies In order to get any
money, mis is an tne Deiier ior mem.
They can live in one place all the year
round and barnstorming will cease aut
omatically when no one wants to pay
several times the amount of the movies
show for some inferior production of a
stale play." "Will there, be a great
fortune In it?" "Money?" asked Edi
son. "Why, all the money I make on
nn invention goes into furthering my
experiments. I do not seek money.
Besides, there will be any number of
others begin along the line, and I have
found that an inventor Is always sacri
ficed for the public good, which is satis-,
factory so long as the great masses are
benefited. Often the courts do not up
hold me, but somehow, I get the credit
whatever that Is good for," he added
with a laugh. "Will It not be hard on
actors?" was suggested. "On the con
trary," replied Edlson.-eatnestly, "they
are going to be benefited. They will
be able to lead a normal home life. I
can see nothing In the future but big
studios centralized, perhaps In New
York, employing all the actors all the
year round and at a better figure than
they now get." Bryan's Commoner.
Fine Car Load of Hogs.
Mr. A. B. Skillman was In Louisville
last week with a car load of hogs shipped,
by Skillman & Jarboe from their farms,
near Skillman. This is said to be the
finest load of hogs oit the Louisville mar
ket during the season, They were all
tops averaging 250 pounds and brought
top prices, $7.55.
