"No, I am not even with you

mission that they are seeking an
Increase in the telephone i toll

eral mass of users. This he at
tempted to do throtrsh the quoa

' !Mri Tomllnson explained fur-

This was preceded by an attack
by Shaw on Major Babcock's sugr

'logical point of Increase, and cu
bing the fact that the toll charges

plorer, Here Tonight
Some or mis marvelous story of
the part electricity played in war
was presented at the hautauqua
last night, wheniiurnell Ford, late
of the government service, snowed
a few of the achievements of Am
erican electricians. The war quit
almost too soon for the good of
science, for, driven by the fierce
spur of war, they were preparing
a series ol electrical surprises
that had all the terror of the su
pernatural and the realities of
mathematics. Electrical science
made the greatest progress in -the
few years of the war, than for a
century before, Mr. Kord saidj
and the science has only gotten
far enough along to show what
vuster marvels yet remain un
proved. Wonders Yet to Come
"These boys who rear that all
electrical wonders have already
been discovered by Edison and
Marcont needn't worry a Uit," he
said. "There is infinitely more
ahead of them than there Is al
ready known, and it is infinitely
easier to get, with the momentum
"There are millions of hor3ei
power all around us. that we need
onlyAo know the secret of to un
loose for the benefit of all man
kind. Water power is not sur
ficient. The sun, with its ligbi
and heat, will be a vast source of
power; yet there are other giant
powers that we can develop t
and we are developing them now."
Marvels Demons! fated
The speaker presented many
marvels of high tension electric
ity. The high tension current
that he used carried 3,000,000
volts and it looked and sounded
as scarey as a cave full of rattle
snakes. But with it the speaker
performed many startling experi
ments, demonstrating how this
high voltage current can be made
to serve the arts, the sciences and
the trades. With it he was able
to show how the submarine boat,
torpedo, or even the cruiser or
other boat can be controlled from
cne central station. Mr. Ford
was one of the governments
right hand men in developing the
electrical defence and offense ag
ainst the German submarine. The
process has been carried to such
perfection that only a few days
ago one of the British dreadought
battleships was maneouvered by
wireless through the whole fleet,
without a soul on board to con
trolu Its course"

"But you wunt to keep away

speaker. "The spirits of Chris

they could, they would not coniS;

could and we would have them.
The ouija board and the things
it represents account for a vast

people were standing at the rear.
