SLETTERS BY TELEGRAPH. riene
Western Union to. Inaugurate a tiest
New Service Known as Night
Letters at Nominal Rates.
Announcement is. made by the of ti
Western Union Telegraph Company will
:that it will shortly be prepared to the i
handle - long night messages at the to t'
rates customarily charged for ten- form
word day messages. but I
It appears that the Western Union soon
has a large unemployed mileage of libe]
wire at night ' which is not earning wist
anything. These wires must be main this
tained in any event to take care of
the reguler day business, and it is ap
parently the idea of the new inter- A
ests in the telegraph company to let field
the public have the benefit of them. line
The. announcement states that "a posy
special Night Letter service will be con
established as soon as practicable. for
The charge, for this service will be sist
the standard day rate for ten words, cha
for the transmission of fifty words or His
less,.and one- fifth of each standard Lel
day rate will be~charged for each ad- bro
ditional ten words or less." the
To be taken at these rates "Night rea
Letters" must be written in plain' yo
English language, that is to say, code thi
words or communications written in
foreign languages will not be accept
ed. The messages will be taken at
aniy hour up to midnight and trans
mitted at' the company's convenience
duriig the night for delivery the fol- .
lowing morning.; For the present the
new service is confined to Western
UniOn offices in the United States.
The tariffs charged for Night Letters
are so low it is expected that the new
service will be largely availed of by
business .concerns and others 'to:
quicken :ttheir correspondence :by
using the telegraph instead of the
mils. A Night Letter sent.by tele

The Base Ball Team is Getting Ready for the

Next Saturday our basket ball teamq t
goes to Alexandria to play the High it
School. Past experience has taught a
us to make no rash assertions in re
gard to what we will do, but it is not
going too far to say that we will do
our best. The boys have been put- T
ting in some good hard practice, es
pecially on team work. The Pine
ville game put a few new ideas into
our heads and their especially good 1
team work was one of them.
Those boys who intend to play ball 1
when the base ball season opens
have put in some hard work putting

There will be no school Thursday

wear happy faces.

program last Friday, and as usual the'
program was an excellent one, espec
ially the music. The public are cor
