Last night, worn out by hours of
t il down in the busy marl's turmoil,
1 sut me in the fireside glow, and
read some talcs by Kdgar I'oc. I
had not read those anecdotes since
I was young and full of oats, but in
my memory they stood as something
grandly, weirdly good. So now 1
took the book and read of buried
men who were not dead; of one-eyed
cats and tell tale hearts, of moldy
b.mes and poisoned tarts; of ghostly
freaks who sat in tombs and talked
about their divers riuoiru; of Ushers
in their crumbling homes, of skulls
and worms and catacombs; of
gloomy dungeons underground, of
wine wherein men drowned; of con
dors' wings and owls and bnts, and
tubs of blood and ring-tailed rats.
I threw that silly book away. One
idol more has feet of cla ! Or is it
that my taste is punk, since 1 have
soured on l&dgar's junk? Is all that
rot concerning bats, and ghosts and
ghouls and sorecyed cats the kind
of stuff that stirs the heart of one
who has regard for art? I do not
care for art myself; I take some
volume from the shelf some book
that has a joyous strain, whose
author was not quite insane and in
its cheerful pages find refreshment
for the heart and mind.

In view of the efforts at the pres
ent time to curb amateur wireless
telegraphers nnd the protest of the
latter against monopoly of the at
mosphere by commercial and gov
ernment stations, It is interesting to
note the decision recently handed
down in the case of the Lake Shore
and Michigan Southern Railroad
Compnny, the l'ostal Telegraph-Cable
Company, and the Western Un
ion Telegraph Company versus the
Chicago, Lake Shore and South
Bend Railway Company. Suit was
brought against the latter company
because its 6,6co volt single-phase
trolley line affected inductively the
lines of the telegraph companies and
the signal system of the railroad
company. The court held that the
use of the single-phase alternating
current on one's own premises does
not constitute a nuisance, even
though the electricity may escape
and interfere with the operation of
electrical devices on adjoining prop
erty; that the companies bringing
suit held no monopoly of the at
mosphere, and if they found their
system interfered with, that they
should provide such mechanical or
electrical devices as would protect
