XXXXIII No. 26 PATRIDGE RADIO STATION AN INTERESTING PLACE The wonder* of the radio and radi» phone were fully demonstrated to the writer last Thursday evening when he accepted an invitation from Irvin T. Patridge to his home for the evening. Mr. Patridge is one of the profes sional amateur operators of ihe city and has been working with his wire less equipment lor several years. He has lately completed a radio phone sending- apparatus with which he has been able to talk with Aberdeen, El Icndale, Fargo and several Minnesota cities, and last Saturday evening- es tablished a record by having his con versation with Aberdeen heard by a St. Paul operator. Inasmuch as the radius of his apparatus is supposed to have onl an area of forty miles, this last accomplishment is regarded as a freak record which may lead to some important discoveries. Mr Patridge has communicated with many stations over the country by his spark set, sending his messages in the Morse code, the same as is used by the telegraph opeiators. The frater nity of radio operators over the coun try have postal cards on which they notify each other regarding the mes sages, such as the distance, the clear ness with which the message was re ceived and the equipment with which they received the message. This gives a wider scope to the possibilities of the work and is undoubtedly* ono the reasons for the rapid strides which the wireless inventions have made during the past few years. Thursday evening the radio conver sation of ar. operator in Hoswell, New Mexico with Santa Anna, Cal., was heard very clearly, later with an Illi nois operator and then with a Sioux Falls station. Mr. Patridge then cut in on the conversation and infoimed the operator that he heard his con versation clearly and he came back with this reply. "Hello, Milbank. Hel- Milbank. I 'got your message. Thanks Old Man, glad you could hear me. Have no messages lot you." Messages of greeting were also heard and the following one recorded from' Dayton, Ohio: Mrs. W. H. Welsh. 707 Robinson, St. North, Oklahoma City, Oklo. Greetings by 'radio. Here until Thursday. Signed Ted. The message was evidently from a young man to his mother. Until further discoveries radio phone operation will not be a suc cess commercially as it has no more privacy than the rural telephone line nd anyone can take the message by turning up his receiving outfit. One of the disabled men's hospitals located at Denver, Colo., has installed u sending apparatus and every Thur* iay evening they give a concert, which can be heard very clearly most of the time. Concerts given by the broad-1 casting station at Pitsburg can also University of Minnesota and Denver were also heard. In addition count less spark sets ticked out their mes sages, which somewhat resembled the buzzing of mosquitos on Static interference, which is similai to the buzzing the message is usually drowned out by it. 4t is rumored that the Westing house company is contemplating the installation of a broadcasting station in Minneapolis. Such a station there would be a wonderful thing for the radio operators in this part of the country, as the concerts which they Mould send out could be taken very clearly. With the addition of an am plifier, such a concert could be made to record loud enough to be heard by a large audience in a good sized hall Such a demonstration was being giv en last Thursday evening by a thea ter owner in a Wyoming city, who was using the concert given by the Penver hospital.

With the removal of the stairway, tl.e soda fountain will be moved to the wall. Tables for the patrons will be in the center as before. An elevator from the basement to the second story will give access to the storeroom. The business of the com pany has been increasing so much that they were handicapped for lack of space. It is possible that they will install a complete candy making fac tory on the second floor at some fu ture time, and give Milbank a good line of home-made candies. The store will be redecorated arid with the new wall case for bakery toods, which has just been complete* 1 the City Bakery will be the finest and best equipped of any in a city of this size in the state.

LAND SALES PICK UP That pec.pic a,e again commencing to get confidence that the world »s not going entirely to the bow-wows, is evidenced by the fact that land seekers are starting to make enquiries for farming lands, and contracts for same.

The state's at torney according to the inquiry, has interpreted Section 29 of Chapter 333 of the Session Laws of 1910, as re ferring to the county highway system only and it is asked what the opinion of the attorney general is in regard to the bridges the county township are required to constfuct and which is re quired by the laws of the state to re pair bridges. The attorney genera! calli attent on to Scction 20. Chapter 333 of the .1*19 session laws, which lead-: "The duty to construct and maintain all bridge* and culverts throughout the county except upon the trunk highway sys tem is hereby imposed upon the board of county commissioners." In an opin ion handed down on April 8, 1921. the attorney general states: "There is a ftroad and geneial provision which would seem' to impose upon the coun ty the duty of constructing and main taking all bridges and. culverts on highways of the county regardless of the kind of bridge, its size and cost of Construction, but it will be noted that Section 30 of the same act provide that whenever a majority of freehold ers of a civil township or a majority of freeholders living within a radius of n proposed location of a bride?, shall petition the county commission ers for the con.-truction of a bridge, ajid the estimated cost exceeds ?2J0 thf «tnttfte imposes the duty on the county commissioners to investigate the necessity of construction and if the board approves the location an.l believes a bridge is required, it is made the duty of the board to erect such a bridge." Further from quoting the above the attorney general says: "The law per mits of no other construction than that the county must construct all bridges costing more than *200. To adopt your construction and to take the view that Sections 29 and 30 of the session laws of 1919 apply only to county bridges, would mean the county would build no bridges on sec ondary roads. Such a construction would clearly not be warranted by the provisions of the highway law." Accoitling to the opinion Section 29 "makes it the duty of the county to constiuct and maintain all bridges throughout the county, that is all bridges costing over S20(.

YELLOWSfONE TRAIL TO HAVE TRAVELING BUREAU The executive committee of the Yel lowstone Trail association, always alert for something that will help the trail, the territory through which it travels, or the tourists, have a num ber of new thing* in store for 'the coming year and among them is one that will attract much attention and be a great benefit. It is the "travel ing information bureau." In the bul letin just put out by the trail associa tion the following excerpt explains the plan: "A distinctly fiew feature -which the Yellowstone Trail Association will put into operation this year is the traveling infoimation bureau system. Plans and arrangements are now be ing worked out in the general offices to have two automobiles in the field along the Yellowstone Trail equipped to give out information, data, map* or anything relative to the Yellow stone Trail, to the tourists n*et along the route. The cars will be painted in ellowstone Trail colors, and carry the official insignia of the organization these cars will be equipped for camp ing out, and will visit every tourist camp along the trail and report on the equipment and method.- in each camp ground the managers of the travel ing information bureaus will camp out every night, meeting and talking with the tourists in the camp grounds, giving out maps and information a bout the trail. The traveling bureaus will prove a mutual benefit to the tourists and the association. The managers of these bureaus will also check up the markings of the Yellow stone Trail and remark the road across the continent. Whenever thf* traveling bureaus can be of a*Hstance to tourists in case of breakdown or trouble, mixed directions or the like, they will be instructed to help such tourists insofar as they can be of as sistance. One of the traveling bur eaus will go east from the Twin cities Ming orgrlhe road to the end of the eastern territory and the other will go west from the Twin Cities to the -Pacific coast at Seattle^ At the end of the trir. at Seattle the car' will im mediately start back doing the same work, always out in the field, always talking Yellowstone Trail, checking up the markers, meeting the Yellow stone Trail citizenship and tourists, giving advice and help wherever it ia asked or needed. The traveling in formation bureaus will be a part of the regular system of free road in foi'mation bureaus now maintained i% eleven of the larger cities along the route and will be under the iurisdic tion of the information bureau depart ment of the association. With the. traveling bureaus working in conjunc tion with the permanent bureaus in the several cities a much mor etUicient information bureau system will be es tablished for the field bureaus w ill be able to gather much important data which in turn can be dispensed thru the permanent bureau after the car leaves the territory the cars in turn will always be within the jurisdiction of one of the permanently located in formation bureaus." -H-A- Death of Young Mottief Big Stone Headlight—"It is with A feeling of deep sorrow that we an nounce the death of Mrs. Lloyd Ger hardt (who was known and loved by all our people as Jennie Kidman) which occurred at the Ortonville hos pital this afternoon (Thursday) short ly after four o'clock.
