While driving with his sons recent
ly, the king ran down a cyclist with
his carriage. Although the accident
was due entirely to the carelessness
of the bicycle rider, the king stopped
the carriage and went to the assist
ance of the young man, whose ma
chine was smashed. His majesty, who
is very fond of cycling and who re
pairs his own machine, saw that he
could put the broken bicycle in run
ning order again. The young man
seemed helpless and stood looking on
while the king worked for ten min
utes repairing the damaged machine.
When the' king had finished the work
the rider asked him for his card, prom
ising to patronize him whenever his
machine needed repairs. As the rider
stood with wide open mouth looking
at the king's name engraved on th*
card, the royal party drove away.

The importance of the proposed
Wireless connections between Norway
and New York would seem to justify I
a somewhat detailed account of the i
plan. The Marconi company negoti-1
ated with the governments of all the
Scandinavian countries. But Norway
was chosen for the site of the station
at the eastern terminus on account of
its favorable geographical position. If
the station had been built in Sweden
or Denmark the messages would have
crossed England, which would have
made wiring difficult. From Norway,
on the other hand, messages can be
sent exclusively across water, the
shortest line between Norway and
New York passing north of Scotland.
The stations to be built at New York
and in Norway will be by far the larg
est and most powerful of their kind
in the world. The distance between
the two stations will be 3,750 English
Kites. The distance between the pres
ent stations in Canada is only half as
great. The regular rate will be 25
cents a word, while the present cable
rate is 35 cents. The rate for press
messages will be 12% cents a word.
It is estimated that the Norwegian
