.something like an April 1 joke, doesn't
it T Bat it's a fact. The Times man was
led U into the attic of the home of Mr.
and Mrs. O. J. Dodge on Elm street
and there introduced to a maze of wires
sikI improvised equipment; was told by
the young operator, Osman Dodge, to
&ct some telephone receivers to bis
ears and, presently, the concert started.
First a contralto voice was clearly
heard, although the words were not dis
tinguishable; then came the sing-song
talk of a man delivering pres dis
patches; again a soprano voice, not so
pleasing as th contralto and with
words not any more distinguishable;
and through it all the intermittent
sputtering of the wireless calls from
one station to another hundreds and
hundreds of miles away. These calls,
stall on. i Bring somefhe with you. In

i rallv to our church services, every
Keedle to say, perhaps, the concert
and the talk in which the voice was
clearly heard came by means of the
radiophone. The receiving apparatus is
the same for that as for wireless teleg
raphy but the sending appartus has to
be of a different type. I he test was
being madt at Pittsburgh (Fast Pitts
burgh, to be exact) as a demonstration-
of the radiophone. The night was
about suited for the transmission of
the wings and talk because the air was
still and cool; and although the sender
was perhaps 600 miles away the voices
could dc. neara wun remarxaoie dis
tinctness, being literally picked out of
the skies.
Thin was not the first time that the
young operator has listened in on musi
cal programs at ljast Pittsburgh. The
concerts are given nightly as a demon
stration, and amateur operators, like
the Barre young man, all over the east
ern section of the country have been
trying their hand at catching the dem
oflWration. Another station in Wash
ington, D. ('., is doing the same thing,
but the Barre operator has nt as yet
caught any of those programs, so far
as lie knows. lie has been experiment
ing with wireless for several years and
has gained considerable proficiency In
the art. He plans to install a large
amplifier in a short time which should
enable him to catch the sounds from
the radiophone much bcti-r and prob
ably enable him to make out the words
of the songs as well as to bear thf
whole of the speeches.

Buttermilk Chick Food
It is rich, nourishing, palatable,
and easily digested. Do not take
anj chances on the food for the
first few weeks. Thousands of
chicks die for the want of the .
right food. Without doubt there
was more Wirthmore Buttermilk
Chick F00S sold in New England
than all other chick foods com
bined. There is a reason. There is
chick insurance in every pound.
