SYSTEM O WIRELES
Offices to Be Established in Twin
"''Cities and Dnlnth.
LOWER RATES ARE PROMISED
Said Charges of New Company Will
Be Less Than Wire Messages, by
Telegraph or Telephone.
Wireless telegraphic communication
is to be established, within a month,
between Minneapolis, St. Paul, Du
luth, Milwaukee, Chicago and Detroit
by a Minneapolis company. As soon
as the system has been tested com
mercial messages will be accepted.
The rates, it is promised, are to be
lower than for messages by wire, tel
egraph or telephone.
The Minneapolis Wireless Telegraph
company has been organized to estab
lish the new form of communication
between the cities named. It has or
dered supplies, and, inasmuch as the
establishment of the means of com
munication is simple, thirty days is
not too short a time in which to begin
the experimental work. The company
is a private affair and no stock has
been issued. Officials of the Interna
tional Vailograph company of Minne
apolis are backing the new company.
H. W. Wiecking of the former com
pany is to be secretary treasurer.
George Almour, for two years in
charge of wireless telegraph on the
battleship Missouri, will install the
system for the company.
The Minneapolis station will be in
the Metropolitan Life building and the
aerial wires will be set up on the roof
of that big structure. The Ryan hotel
roof will afford the connection for St.
Paul. The purpose in going to Duluth
is to get water communication with
Chicago and Detroit. Wireless mes
sages work better over water than by
land, hence the detour by way of Du
luth and down the lakes through Mil

family dog-, a collie, and the faithful
animal was still by her side when
found. She had apparently lost her
way and died of exposure.

Heavy Cutting of Lumber for 1907

mentioned 214.000.000 feet were tout.
Estimates for the cutting next year

Ghostly Appeal After a Raffle That
When John Hickey left a raffle at a
house in West Caldwell, N. J., on
Christmas morning and started for his
home in Little Falls he carried slung
over his shoulder three turkeys and
four geese which had fallen to his
fortune, says a West Caldwell special
dispatch to the New York Times. The
others at the raffle had asked him to
leave at least two of the fowls to be
sent to the homes of poor families, as
they had done, but Hickey grinned and
said his wife had a good appetite.
Just before he departed the others
lapsed into ghost stories. So as be
walked down the overshadowed road
near the carpet mill his nerves were
not so very steady. As he reached the
old mill dam and heard the drop, drop,
of the water Hickey felt he was not
alone. He turned about quickly. As
he did so he felt a touch on his arm.
A white object stood close to him.
"Give to jthe poor!" said a hollow
The object vanished. Hickey began
to run, but the white thing kept close
behind him—so close that it was able
.to touch him several times.
"Give to the poor!" repeated the
voice. •$ "3/-
Hickey faced about and swung his
bundle of fowls at the shape. It van
ished. Then he began to run again.
Still the thing followed! Whenever
Hickey stopped the ghost would touch
him and then vanish, although Hickey
could not have seen even a white ob
ject very far off, the road lying be
neath trees that meet overheads After
numberless efforts to shake off his pur
suer Hickey stood.
"Give to the poor," said the ghost,
"or I'll drive you to your grave."
Hickey threw all of the turkeys and
geese in the ghost's direction.
"Here, take the things," he said and
ran back to West Caldwell, where his
adventures excited mirth among those
still at the raffle.
When it was daylight Hickey went
home without discovering any solu
tion. After he had been in his home
for some hours Mrs. Hickey found two
turkeys and three geese lying on the
rear veranda. Hickey explained to hia
wife, who hadn't heard of the ghost.
"I won those birds at the raffle.
There was one more of each, but I left
them to be given to the poor."
"John has had a change of heart,"
Mrs. Hickey told her neighbor.
