To realize the tremendous velocity If this phenomenon It may be com pared with the speed of the voice, found travels a little more than 100 test a second. A person talking Into a radio nuismitter can be heard 15 miles iff sooner than his voice would aught by a bystander 10 feet away! to fact. If present-day radio trans Dlsslcn were capable of It, the an touncer'e voice could be received by ladlo nearly 200 miles away, at (bout the same time that the person ,0 feet oft would hear It. The tlfne It would take for the •Dice to travel these comparative Ilstances would be one ninety-third d a second. A radio message spoken In New Tork can be caugbt In Portland >re., In one sixty-second of a second. Ï sound alone were capable to «.rry the message this distance. It rould take nearly four and one-half lours to reach Portland. In one second, a radio flash could nake seven and one-half trips .round the earth.

TAUNTON, Mass.—In face of a despair that grow« deeper every day, a mother here keeps hoping—almost against hope—that her kidnaped baby will come back. More than three years have pass ed. But Mrs. Clarence B. Smith keeps up her dally vigil In her little bungalow on the edge of a dense New England woods in West Dlghton, a hamlet nearby. Unable to altord private direc tives or advertising campaigns, for her husband "works out" among neighboring farmers, Mrs. Smith has been carrying oh her search alone. Recently she found a youngster In Her hope was greater than ever be fore. But Investigation proved that the boy was Robert Choquette, son of a wanderer and now a Massachu setts State char*», Hope Feto mal. Disappointed mors keenly than even ever before, the mother bit her Ups, resumed her search and waits on patiently. "One child," she says, "was found after many years. My Russell has been gone for less than four. Some deys he will be restored to us. 'To lose a child by death causes enough suffering. But the uncer tainty of knowing whether the child Is dead or alive Is far worse." Toung Russell disappeared on April 12, 1919. "I came home from work late In the afternoon," says his father, "and spoke to the boy as he was playing with a kitten not a hundred feet from the house. "Twenty minutes later I called him to supper. He did not answer." Within two hours Taunton police were on the scene. State police fol PAM OC9 KIDNAPING CASES Charlies Ross, disappeared from a Pennsylvania town In 1X74. Newer heard of since.

Mystery still un solved. Boy Scouts and neighbors lowed. searched the wooda All the search Ing was to no purpose. A description of the boy was broadcast: Age, four years and one month, tall and slim build, medium brown hair left eye badly crossed, hazel eyes with long lashes, white even teeth; dressed In gray-striped overalls, torn blue coat, blue stock ing cap, brown shoes with rubbers and brown stockings. But It was of little avail. The boy hasn't been seen or heard of since. Various theories have been offered In explanation. "Wildcats,"' says one police offl olal." were shot in these woods soon aftsr. have left a trail of torn clothing. "Kidnapers would probably have written a note asking ransom.

McKee, of Wallingford, were burned at 7 o'clock last night. The blaze Is believed to have been Incendiary. It Is the fourteenth barn In Dela ware oounty, Pa. burned within the last six weeks and the third In four days. More than 200 chickens, three horses and two cows were killed In the fire.

Machinery, wagons and feed were destroyed, and the total loss Is near ly *8,000. Edward MoCarey, deputy lire mar shal of Delaware county, Is Investi gating the cause of these reoent fires. Ho said yesterday that It was quite evident they were the work of a fire bug, who also has been operating In Chester county. He said It was prob able that either a fuse or a candle Is used by the Incendiary, so that he has time to get out of the neighbor hood before the blaze is dlsoovered. As no one could benefit by the fires, the fire marshal believes the person responsible Is a pyromaniac.
