Carrier pigeons, and not wireless, will h?- used by Lieutenant I'orte on his trans? atlantic flight, according to Glenn Cur? tiss. When seen at the Hotel Astor last nicht Mr. CurtlM said he thought the OS abqut ten tlmei as effective as ? wireless and fifty times as light as the ? equipment for wireless. "Why, your wireless apparatus would weigh a hundred vounds, and It could reach only 100 or l?O miles," he added, "while the pigeon, granted he welsh? as much as two pounds, can flv a thousand miles. With birds, too, you don't run any ; risk from ?parks, which constitute a ? grave peril to an aeroplane." I Mr. CurtlM said the first flight of the boat wo;;ld be made to-morrow.

In an affidavit filed by ber coun? sel, former District Attorney John B. Merrill, of Jamaica, Mra. Sprague also Implicates her husband's cousin, J. Rus? sell Sprague, a young lawyer, of Far Roc ka way. She accuaes the lawyer of assisting rn the plot to conceal from her that an sc tion was being brought against her. Mr? Sprague, who is twenty-one years old. Is living with her mother. Mrs. Eliza? beth Dalton, at Edgemere. Her baby Is ?Ith her. In her affidavit Mrs. Sprague alleges that her huaband wishes to get rid of her so as to be able to fulfil the wiah of his rich mother, that ho marry Mlaa Laura Werden, an orphan, who for two years haa been living in his mother's home as an adopted daughter. The young wife affirma that she and Sprague, who is twenty-four, lived hap? pily together from their marriage at ?

If you don't sign it I will kill you and then myself." She asserts Sprague told h*r the paper meant nothing, but was merely to satisfy his mother, who was angry on account of Miss Werden. With her hua? band, she says, she went to the office of ht?, cousin, the lawyer, and there signed the paper, without knowing what It waa Now she believes that It waa a sup? posed confession by her that she had de? ceived her husband as to her character at the time of their marriage,, and la now being uaed as the basis of the annulment suit.

Merrill aaid last night that the suit, having been kept secret by virtue of the machinations against her for that pur? pose, Mrs. Sprague had put in no an? swer, but he will try to-morrow to ha\e the default reopened, am. will make a vigorous fight to defend the action, which he characterized as extraordinary.
