New Night Letter Service
Will Effect Great Sav
ing in Future
Beginning yesterday a new night
message system which materially de
creases tho cost of telegraph messages,
for those who use tlio wires extensive
ly, was put iu nctivo operation by tho
Western Union Telegraph company.
Tho new system is known as night
letter service and on messages of fifty
words or over cuts the telegraph tolls
down to 20 per cent of the regular day
Brioly, the night letter servieo is
this: Between Globe and every other
telegraph station iu tho United States,
here is a fixed day rate for ten words
or less. Under the new system, a
fifty word message will bo sent at night
for tho samo charge as a regular ten
word day mes'age. Up to fifty woijds,
the charge is tho same. Over fifty
words, however, tho additional words
are charged for on tho basis of one-fifth
of the day word rate.
tFor example, suppose a message is
to bo sent from Globo to Los Angolcs.
The day rate is 50 cents for ten words
or Cc per word. By tho night let
ter service, fifty words may be sent
for JO cents and additional words will
bo sent for one cent each.
Theso messages may bo filed at any
tuno during tho dny or night, up to
2 a. in. They will not be sent, how
ever, until night. As tho night rates
aro only 10 per cent lower than tho
day rate, however, the new night let
ter servico will effect a big saving on
long messages.
In establishing tho new service, it
is generally understood that tho Wes
tern Union is going after business which
is now transacted by mail and telephone
instead of by telegraph. Tho business
man nho wishes to order goods from
the east, the coast, or .elsewhere, mails
his order unless tho goods aro needed
in a hurry, as telegraph tolls on a
lengthy order aro expensive, under tho
new system, however, he can place an
oider by telegraph at one fifth of tho
ti rmer cost and as much time will bo
saved in tins way, a largo night letter
service will soon develop. Tho samo
condition may be said to hold good with

As tho result of a runaway accident
in tho Thatcher boulevard, Saturday
evening, Miss Fay Claridge of Thatchor
sustained a broken anulo ana .Miss lie

Tho two young women wero driving

Bolutoly safe, and had proceeded but a
short distance along tho boulevard to

to turn out to allow another vehicle to
pass. While thoy wero partly out of
tho road, tho animal took fright at tho
burned and blackened grass which skirt

Before Miss Fay Claridge could get
the animal under control, it turned
sharply, cramping the wheels and over
turning tho buggy.
Tlio fracture sustained by Miss Clar

probably incapacitato her for several
weeks. Miss Rebccka Claridge, her
niece, escaped with scarcely a scratch.

Tho Commercial hotel was owned,
through a guardian, by Hcrnian Sydow,

The last link of tho lifo of the can

Tho union of tho fortunes of the
freaks and their manager belonged to a
tinio when there were few railroads, no
ocean liners and few public museums.
It was a time of homespun and fine
linen; of confused views of tho wholo
world from tho little red sohoolliouse;
of P. T. Durmiin and his monstrous can

hardly believe his eyes when ho saw tho

Doctor Warner placed the pair in tho
care of a Mr. Harvey, now long dead,
and they made tho tour of tho museums
and the side shows of tlio circuses. Tho
little Waino, lifting men of 300 pounds
with ease, startled tho country.
Then Dr. Warner thought of his rela

Cambridge. That was iu about 18G0.
Thus began tho union of fortunes be
