I, -
i There are many types of radio re
ft ' reiving sets hut for the purpose of
ft lids story we can divide them into
S' two classes: Those which squeal
| R., i those which do not. The first,
ft T understand to be known In the
Hi trade us regenerative, that is capable
of broadcasting when improperly
It handled. These, regenerative sets,
|l when forced too far, will broadcast
I* a taedJei of squeals which can lie and
r often is picked up for miles around.
x.-: course the operator is not getting
ft any reception when his machine is
I squealing. Ho also knows that he
Hi is disturbing from ten to fifty people
who are trying to use receiving Hets
|- in Hie various homes about hint.
§! The other class consists of maeh
|i lues that, even if handled carelessly,
| will mil become broadcasters. These
E imregeuerative sets won’t disturtli
E 'the neighborhood even if improperly
E operated.
E Now tlic man with a -regenerative
I • net is acting within his legal rights
a when lie makes use of it. There
E is,no law requiring him to desist
j from lllling the air with doleful
| . sound. Should lie feel maliciously
E. imlined, lu* could sit doWn to his in
I Ktrunient and so handle it as to des
f troy, lemporarily, the usefulness of j
I’"till tiie machines within a tlve mile!
1 radius. On some evenings it would
' appear that several Individuals wergi
!' engaged in doing just this.
I'j Nmv we know there is no one in
Skowhegan entirely lucking in breed
! ing and courtesy. Perhaps these;
t folks, who make a nuisance of them
selves with the radio, would pick up
i: a handkerchief on the street for a
lady or open the door for an elderly
| man to pass and would feel the better
; fur having rendered these courtesies.
I They would not butt into a converse-1
! tion in a boorish, impolite and lncon
I siderato way. As a matter of fact
: they think a good deal of gentlemanly
J and courteous conduct and would feel
[ very badly to he considered lacking
j in this respect. The trouble is, |
I when they g'-t down before their sets.
their anxiety to reach distant point's
I causes them to in* inconsiderate of
r the rights of others. Under those
circumstances they'd bo guilty of
! conduct entirely at variance with
their usual courteous nature. Please,
folks, have a heart. Just u little
thoughtfulness will greatly improve
condition You'll feel better your
ii-ir iii-il incur the gratitude of your
fii-i i1 ami 'neighbors, by proper ut
totum to tills matter.
Ii m il hardly be said that young
iliildi n should not lie turned loose
w i:!i n i --generative set. No mutter
ho. hu.iliie and thoughtful they are,
the.- must inevitably become a nul
sn allowed to bundle a radio
in him without older supervision.
For Vour Hydrometer
’ sii.t'.igi; batteries are coming con
i;i ; ills into greater use. They are
usually a necessary adjunct to the
radio uni of course the automobile
u ai t travel without them. They are
\i \ largely in the hands of amateurs,
ramie who are unite unfamiliar with
tie a iiKlple involved.
'I'h, ituid contained in these fcat
t, is railed electrolyte. The;
: • i n; of iis energy iR determined by
til . the specific gruvity. For mak-l
ling this test, the device called a hy
drometer is used. The electrolyte is
corrosive and no matter where you
put the hydrometer when you are
through with it there will be enough
moisture at the tip to corrode and rot
out about everything with which it
comes in contact. If you ' go into
garages and other workshops where
the hydrometer is used or as you And
theiy in the homes, you will observe
it has wrought havoc with the box
in which it is kept and usually with
the shelf where it is put away.
All this may be avoided by having
a receptacle made of sheet lead. The
expense is moderate. It is much
worth while for the sake of system,
neatness and order. ,
Thirty.one Tears of Faithful Service
* ———
Foremost among Skowhegan's faith
ful workmen is Napoleon Thlbeault.
the local gateinan, who has for the
past thirty-one years been an em
ployee of the Maine Central Railroad
Company. Previous to December I.
1911, Mr. Thlbeault worked for this
company In the section department.
Since that time, he has very earnestly
and efficiently maintained his present
position. Mr. Thlbeault has never,
during this long period, been em
ployed by any other company or per
son.
His working hours each day are
from 7 a. m. to G.10 p. m.. which is
after the arrival of the late afternoon
train. On Sundays he has a half
holiday.
Mr. Thiheault's precedessor, Wil
liam Frye, retired owing to ill health
and advanced age and has since de
ceased.
Unfortunately, the tracks are sit
uated in such a central position in
the town, that the freight trains, in
shifting, must necessarily cause a bit
of annoyance and delay. We all
know, however, how watchful and
courteous Mr. Thibeault is. He
doesn’t, of course, like us to "take
chances." However, he does give us
quick service in raising the gates
when the tracks are clear. A habit
many of us have that he especially
dislikes Is passing, when the gates are
down, beyond the crossing by Fogg's
Drug Store, anywhere along to the
railroad oridge. He, of course, can
not watch us closel'y down so far and
the children especially cause him
much anxiety.
Asked if the automobiles unnoyed
him by excessive blowing of auto
horns, he replied in the negative. He
thinks it is remarkable there has been
so few accidents considering the
amount of traffic. In all the years he
has been stationed at these gates, on
ly two fatalities have occurred. The
first, it will be recalled, was the little
Lane boy, who was killed by the aft
ernoon train. The other was Ed
ward N. Merrill,, who was struck by
a freight train.
Mr. Thlbeault sets us an excellent,
example of faithfulness in his em
ployment.
