O'CONNOR Latest Novelties in Tobacco Jars and Pipe Racks at Burford's i Wireless Telegraphy is Simple To Initiated Ones By EDWARD BEATTIE Wireless telegraphy,- wonderful as It may seem, Is very simple to one initiated into its "mysteries." When the writer first began his experiment ing. he used a set costing thirty-fivo cents. This was only for receiving, and, of course, could not cover any great distance. There are two distinct operations in wireless telegraphy, sending and receiving. The only part that can be used in both is the aerial or air wires, sometimes called the anten nae. It is put up in the air as high as possible, so as to clear the sur rounding objects, such as trees, houses, buildings, and other similar obstructions, which intercept part of the waves and conduct them to the ground. It is also made as long as posible and is composed of any num ber of copper or aluminun wires, gen erally four or six. although two or eight are frequently used. The rea son that more than eight are rarely put up is that the cross-beam, or spreader, would not hold the strain. An aerial fifteen feet wide contain ing six wires is just as efficient as one of the same width having eight. Either one or two wires are brought down from the antennae to make con nection with the instruments. These are called the leads or lead-in. As all aerials differ in height, length, and breadth,, some instru ment is needed to counteract these differences. This is called a tuning coil, which, technically speaking, brings the circuit into resonance Probably everyone knows what tuning forks are; how if one is brought into tune with another and the first is sounded, the other will sound al so. It is on the same principle that the wireless stations must be "in tune" with each other, or the opera-! tors will not be able to communicate. This operation which will bring the distance station in louder, and "tune out" the unwanted ones is called "tun ing" and is done by means of a tuning coil. But when one is close, it is very hard to keep from hearing your neigh bor, especially if he has a strong send ing set. This objection will shortly be overcome, however, the Marconi people claiming that they can "work through" the most powerful station, no matter how close it is situated. The tuning coil, which was men tioned above, is a cylinder a few inches in diameter on which is wound a layer of wire, extending from one end to the other. Over the cylinder is placed either one or two rods, each having a slide 011 it. The slide makes contact with the wire, and as it is inoved back and forth over the wire, more or less of it is put into the re ceiving circuit, in which it is con nected. There are two connections made to the set, one to theaeriai, and one to the ground. The detector is a piece of appara tus which renders the wireless wave audible in the receivers, or head 'phones. The most common one is made by clamping a piece of mineral, such as iron pyrites, silicon, carbor undum, etc., in a cup. On this crystal rests a piece of wire, or metallic ma terial, which makes contact with it. This wire can be moved around so as I to rest 011 a sensitive point. The wave sent out by the sending apparatus oscillates so rapidly that the human I ear can not perceive it. The mission of the detector is to lower this high frequency. The detector ordinarily has a very high resistance, i. e., elec-| tricity cannot readily flow through it. When the wave reaches the de tector, the resistance is considerably - lowered and part of the wave train flows through, thus producing an aud- < ible effect on the head receiver. * The head 'phones work on the same J principle as the ordinary telephone < receiver, which is sometimes brought 4 into service for short distance work, J only they are built better, are more < sensitive, and made smaller so that 4 they may be mounted on a head band. < If you have ever examined a telephone J receiver you may have noticed that a < thin piece of metal, called the dia-1, phragm, is mounted a short distance M away from two powerful magnets. These magnets exert a pull on the dia phragm and when the wave train af- j fects them, it vibrates and produces ? an audible buzz. The short and long ! buzzes consitute the code, different r j combinations of the former being used ? I for different letters of the alphabet. ' The Continental code is in vogue on the Pacific Coast and in Europe, the Morse on the Atlantic Bea-board and the Great Lakes. The duty of the sending apparatus is to set up powerful enough oscil lations to bridge the distance over which the message is to be sent. The instrument to raise the voltage is eith er a transformer or a spark coinl. The principle is the same in both, the lat ter being a very poor transformer of energy compared with the former, it is not used very much for wireless pur poses, and for this reason will not be discussed in this article. ; I (To be Continued.) < < Unique Marriage Ritual By A Kansas Squire COUNCIL GROVE, Kan. 21. ? A, rcord of a unique early day marriage! ceremony was found here among some j documents in the probate judge'B of-; fice at the court house. In the late 60's "Squire Aplington,' of the first settlers in the country, widely known and well liked, was elected a justice of the peace. He had very little "book learning" and was not much knowledge of law, but he was a rough and ready orator, and when two bent on having the knot tied appeared at his office he was equal to the emergen cy, although he never before had per formed a wedding ceremony and had no form of procedure to go by. Quite a crowd came with the bride and bridegroom, and one took down the words the judge employed. After all the preliminaries had been arranged Squire Aplington faced the bride and bridegroom, Amos Pea body and Amanda Thomas, and their witneses and said: "Fellow citizens, this here man and this here woman havo appeared before this court to be hitched in the legal bonds of wedlock. If any galoot in the mob knows of anything that might block the game if took to a higher court, let him toot his bazoo or else keep his jaw to himself now and for evermore. All in favor of my pro ceedings as authorized by law say T; contrary 'No.' Nobody said 'No,' and the motion is carried unanimous ly, and the court rules there is noth ing to prevent the trying of the case. "Now (to the couple) grip your hands. (The couple Joined hands.) Amos 'Peabody, do you solemnly swear that you'll freeze to Mandy forever and provide for her and treat her square and white, according to the rules and regulations set down to gov ern such cases in the laws of the United States, so help you God?" "Yes, sir, I do," Amos said. "That fixes your end of the bar ! gain. Mandy Thomas, do you solemn ly swear that you'll hang to Amos for all coming time, that you'll nurse him in sickness and be square with him to a true, honest, up and up wife, under the peralties prescribed for such offenses?" . "I swear I will," the bride replied. "Then by the power vested in me as justice of the peace in and for Morris County. State of Kansas, I, John Aplington, pronounce you, Amos Peabody, husband, and you, Mandy ' Thomas, wife, and legalize you to re main such now ahd forevermore, and stand committed until the fees and costs in the case are paid in full, and God have mercy on your souls!"
