Everything is lovely over here, except
that fraffl between h.r and Berlin is
st ill congested, but not quit so bad as
reviously and we will soon have a York
oecial running on regular time to Pots

AVe are all somewhat disappointed, as
Kaiser Bill, a very prominent man (in
b.9 home town), has been promising to
ray a visit to Taris and vicinity all
s;. ring and summer, but for some reason
or other he has not been ablo to get here
yet: in fact, we have given -up all hopes
f him c.cmmg, as he has some very
li.l roads to travel over, ha! ha!
V.'e have seen (julte a number of his
friends traveling in that direction, but
thy seemed to have bad a very rough
'mc of it and didn't seem to be. enjoying
he trip at all. and one might say they

boirg guarded by h bunch of toughs ca'.
e 1 Yanks, tind who they said had been
,:sing th'.m real mean, especially at
. "bateau Thierry. There they say these
same toughs jumped onto them when
-hey wasn't looking (which wasn't fair?)
and beat them up something awful. It Is
also said that the ks,iser's tin Lizzie
with which he intended to visit Paris in
is badly worn and in need of repairs;
in fact, in such a state of collapse that
although he has attempted the trip a
number of times the machine has al
ways broken down when he struck the
F. E. and A. road. And. although b"ing
a man of his word? he will have to fore
go the trip altogether.

Enormous strides have been made

telegraphy in aircraft. One of the
'h.ef difficulties was to overcome the
r:io of the engine. But skill and in
genuity conquered this difficulty almost
completely. It is not permissable to
s'ate Just how it was accomplished.
Tor in these matters Germany has ni'

methods successfully used by the Brit
ish. The effective range for wireless
transmitted fro mthe air has been
largely increased. Not so very long
