Anton Dern, who has successfully conducted the Northern hotel for twenty years, has decided to retire from business. He has arrived at the age~of seventy-six years and feels that he must spend his remaining years in the rest that is the reward of a fruitful life. On July 1 of the present year he will turn the management of the hotel over to his son-in-law Geo. Forcey and his son Walter Dern. Aiter that date they will have entire supervision of the hotel property and they contemplate making a number of changes. Both have grown up in the business, and ought, therefore, to be successful f m the start. The Northern hotel was erected in 1884 by Mr. Dern. During its erection he suffered a mishap, and that he did not lose bis life seems miraculous. One day while on the staging of the third story he made a misstep aud plunged to the bottom of the basement; in the decent ladders broke bis fall or he would have been killed. As it was, he suffered the fracture of several bones. After the completion of the hotel it was rented for a year by A. T. Stewart. Louis Schlecht then conducted it for about two years. On May 1, 1889, Mr. Dern took charge and has conducted it ever since. Since its construction the accommoda tions of the hotel have been increased by the building of an addition aud numerous improvements have been made. Mrs. Dern, who supervised the work of the kitchen, has been iu poor health for a number of years and, it is thought, the rest which will come with the change of management will great ly benefit her. WIRELESS TELEGRAPH. A subject of considerable mystery on the west side the past few days has been solved. Last week two poles spliced together, bearing a window screen, was erected ou the roof of the A. F. Stanke buildiug, 409 S. Third Ave. Since that time many people have won dered what the strange device meant. Some thought it some new fangled arrangement to attract attention to the meat market below. Others offered various opinions. But the mystery has been solved. Mr. Stanke’s son F'rauk, a boy fifteen years of age, has been making a study of electricity and the results to be ob tained from the mystic blue spark. He is alf wrapped up in the study. One of his friends, Wells Turner, has a wire less telegraph outfit for sending mes sages. The two recently got their heaus together and decided to arrange a transmitting and a receiving station. This they have done. The mast ani screen on the Stanke building on tL * west side is the receiving station and messages from young Turner’s home ou the east side to his friend, in the wireless code. Up to the present, young Stanke has not attached a transmitting apparatus, and can therefore only take messages, which are caught by the mast and screen and pass out of a telephone receiver. The boys have experienced difficulty on account of the strong current of electricity pas sing througn the street car company’s wires, which causes a buzzing sound in the wireless apparatus. This they ex. pent to overcome by making some changes. While both boys are very young they have shown remarkable cleverness in the arrangement and haDdliDg of their apparatus aud should each continue to pursue his studies in electricity, they will some day become electrical engineers of renown. It will be of interest to anyone to in vestigate their methods of sending and receiving messages. MOTHERS’ MEETING. On Thursday at 3 o’clock p. m. a mothers’ meeting will be held in M. E. church and the great grandmothers will be the guests of honor. There will be music by various singers of the church and C. A.

Brigham, will give a talk on “The Mission of a Mother.” The meeting will be a great success as there is a committee of twenty-five ladies of the church who are looking after the details. Conveyances are to be provided for all who cannot atleud otherwise. HAND INJURED. F\ E. Bradberg, head miller for the Northern Milling company, met with a serious accident yesterday. The com pany had been installing some new machinery and Mr. Bradberg was in specting same. He saw something on one of the roller mills which was in motion, and in attempting to brush it off his foot slipped end his left hand was caught. He braced himself and as quick as thought, pulled his hand from the machine. The result was the crushing of the second and third lingers, so badly that the second had to be amputated at the first joint. The third finger may be saved. Had Mr. Bradberg not been able to pull his hand from the rollers in the instant he would have lost his arm.
