GOODBY TO FATHER WINTER
No Doubt That Spring Is Here, With
All the Joyousness That the
Season Should Bring.
The harbingers of spring are numer

of the year to make the heart of ani

with hope. We have been filled with
forebodings. All of our mild December
we said that the autumn was lingering
long this year. In equally mild Jan
unry we prognosticated that we would
"get it" in February. We are still a
little fearful that old Father Winter
may have some ice and snow for us in
his storehouse and so we try not to
be too forward looking.
But a complete plan of the garden
drawn to a scale, with every radish

LUXURY IN EARLY TRAVEL
"Safety Barges" Instituted for Those
Who Feared Hazard of Voyage
on Hudson River.
The frequency with which hollers
blew up on the early Hludson river
boats led to the use of what were
known as "safety barges," and these,
in their day, were considered the
utmost luxury in travel, comparable to
the private cars of the nianates of
today. The h rges were boats with
main fiil( tipper (1(ckst and were al
most as large as the steamers which
towed them. The rabble rode (in the
steamers, ithaled tile smells of the
kitchen and Zhe freight hohls., endured
the noise of the engines. find took the
chances of expllosions, while on the
barges behind the elite traveled in
lixurious state. Food was brought
from the beat kitchen to the barge
saloon over a swaying bridge be
tween the Yessels and was served
with great aplomb under the direction
of the barge captain, who was a noble
figure in the setting.
The upper decks of the barges were
canopied and decked with flowers,
with promenades and easy chairs from
which to view the scenery. At night
the interiors were transformed into
sleeping accommodations much the
same as a modern Pullman, except that
they were more commodious. Not the
least attractive feature of these barges,
according to a chronicler of their ex
cellence, was "an elegant bar, most
sumptuously supplied with all that can
be desired by the most fastidious ind
Recent news dispatches which tell
of plans to establish floating cafes on
the ocean just outside the three-mile
territorial limit when the nation goes
dry, Indicate that luxurious floating
establishments somewhat similar to
these "safety barges" may again come
SCIENTIST TELLS OF TRIUMPH
Professor Claims to Have Perfected
System for Underground and Sub
Speaking recently of his work for the
navy, Prof. James R. Rogers, the in
ventor of a wireless system for under
ground and submarine transmission,
stated: "Six or seven years ago, I
began experiments with the transmis
sion of electric impulses by the ground.
They were renewed during the war
with the audion bulb, which renders
the receiving apparatus more sensitive.
I first established contact with near
by points and before long received with
perfect distinctness impulses sent from
Europe. I placed my antennae in
trenches radiating from a center and
pointing by the compass toward the
distant station from which I wished
to receive. I denonstrated to the navy
depnrt ment that eight operators may
receive at once from eight separate
wires. My system was instalied at
New (1ri(ans. the Grent I;nkes station,
and It'imar, N, Y.. and is now used
at the principal wireless stations in the
United Stat es. I have found tle best
results with mmy wirea hurled six feet
below the surface in damp ground.
Somei of may experiments were conduct
ed in witer 25 to 50 feet deep."-Sclen
