WHICH? i !
What Is ths Best Receiver for DX?
t The Question has been asuea,
many times what is the best re
ceiTer for distance!! What typo of
4et win ' bring me the loudest
signals j from ; ; the greatest dis
tance? j ; I
Before discussing this point in
detail. I remember that there is a
limiting factor on all reception,
nd that factor is the static leyel.
No matter how sensitive our re
ceiTer might be, there is a cer
tain point where the static noises
are always going tale louder than
4the niirnftl. and no receirer will
kPull la signals beyond this point
The range changes with weather
'conditions; sometimes, the static
iwill be so low that we can with
a sensitiTe set get signals oyer
'thousands of miles before the
static begins to get stronger than
the signal. But no receiver can
fierce the wall raised by the static
The 'auestion. then, resolres It
self into: what receiver can I get
.that can always be counted npon
to reach oat to the static limit 7
Needless to say, we are going
o hare to resort to radio fre
quency amplification to a certain
extent For c.w. telegraph signals
there are reasons to believe that
rezenerative detector is! about
as good as anything else" for, d
but for phone there is a distinct
dvaHtice la "the use ot radio
frequency amplification. ( f
Radio frequency . amplification
for phone stations I may be divid
ed Into two classes: First, tae
Bbort-wave r.f. ' amplifier, such as
the ! neutrodfne, which amplifies
the signal on its original wave
length: and; second, the super
heterodyne,? which changes the
incoming phone signals to a long
wate. which Is then more easily
amplified a radio frequency, than
the original short wave.?
Up untili a very few months
the superheterodyne has been re
garded as the last word In sensl
ttve receivers. However; there is
every ireason to believe! that
well-designed short-wave r.f. am
pllf ler will do just as well, and
perhaps slightly better. The diffi
culty with amplification at short
waves Is in keeping the amplifier
from going Into oscillation,' and
this has discouraged many- " But
careful design and i thorough
shielding will go far toward cre
ating a stable amplifier.

Without going Into the theory
involved la the two systems,' we
may state thfct there are points
favoring the short-wave amplifier
as the best for reception of very
weak signals, if we can get- the

CHAPTER NO. 262
WHAT HARRY UNDERWOOp
ASKED UADOE TO TELL, .
j k HIM -
Columbia Hghway Stages.
Must Settle Rate Battle
I shall not soon forget the hour
in which 1 1 drove Harry Under
wood' from the big Smythe-Hop-
klns house Tat Southampton, where
he had been masquerading as Don
Ramon Almirez, to Greenport by
way of the Shelter Island ferries.
In one respect, at least, it was
like escorting the. ghost ot some
one I had known. The voice and
manner were the unforgettable
ones of Harry Underwood, ' ' but
they came from beneath heavy
snow-white mustachlos and Van
Dyke beard, which not only thor
oughly disguised, him, but added
20 years to his age. When I had
known him his hair, also, had been
black, with Just enough gray
sprinkled - through it to make a
most striking frame for his ruddy
faee. i Now his hair was all white,
and to all appearances he was ah
old man.; still handsome, still vlg
orous but undeniably old.
"Pipe the Manner." ' . ;
Disconcerting also was the kal
eidoscopic manner in which; he
changed from one personality to
another.!; From the time he had
taken . the seat beside me; in the
car, up to the moment we entered
the Smythe-Hopklns grounds, even
through the unexpected -encounter
with-Dr, Pettlt, he had been the
old. Irresponsible, rough, slangy
Harry Underwood. But at the en
trance to the home where he had
been tentertained he was trans
formed on the Instant into the
courtly:; dignitary whom he was
impersonating. Yet he could not
resist the Impish Impulse to excite
my laughter by muttering out of
the corner of his mouth as the cor
rect English butler appeareq
his summons: 1 r !
'Pine the manner. Ain't 4
Just the sweetest?" 1 ij
-I did not hear the tale he. told
the butler as an excuse for getting
his belonging out of th4 house.
That it was a convincing' story.
nn.l nlon that he had distributed
convincing largesse I deduced
from the obsequious bustle which
pervaded the house. And it, was
in surprisingly, short time that
two of the butler's helpers ap
peared and deposited the steamer
trunk In the tonneau of my car,
and the Imposing butler himself
escorted the supposed Don Ram
On to a seat beside me find direct
ed the disposal of his smart band-
luggage in the spaces around the
K It was not until we bad left the
grounds that the man at my side
spoke: " -
"Is your well-known Puritan'
conscience in its usual well-oiled
condition, or could It be I a bit
rusty?" ! - -:
"Why?" I asked non-commit-
tally. j J
"Because It Is quite necessary
that your story to the Smythe
Hopkins family should agree with
the tale I just told the butlerV
Harry Underwood's Story.
"I do not see that my conscience
has anything to do with it,' I re
turned. - "If you relate to me
what you said to the butler I have
no right to question its truth."
He laughed lightly. j
"You won't go back of the- re
turns, eh? That's a good little
girl. You're improving under the
Dicky-bird'B tutelage. You'll be
a petticoated little Machiavelll in
time." : . - :tf '4 a ' -.
' There was an intangible some
thing in his voice that betrayed
subtle disappointment,1! and.
guessed that with the inconsisten
cy ot his type of masculine soul,
he would have preferred me to ex
hibit what both men used to dub
my "buskram principles,' even at
the cost ot interfering -with - his
plans. ; ' .: $ ;
I made no answer, to Ills sally.
for I felt a sudden shamefaced
conviction that - he i had ' Jestingly
spoken the truth, and that I had
lost in part the rigid ideals of my
youth. But. In loyalty r would
not admit even to myself that as
sociation with my husband's ten
ets hSjd anything to do with the
chance. There was nothing for
me to do but await Mr. Under
wood's farther speech, and this
did not come until we were out ot
the streets of Southampton, and
had turned iim - the - delightful
winding wood road leading to Sag
"I told His Nibs back there all
about the accident," he began,
"and gave him .your message.
Then I explained my presence by
saying that I had had a heart at
tack, and : that you had brought
me to a physician on the way
here. - rii say you brought me to
a doctor all right. I don't know
of a better nerve tonic than the
sight ot dear, old Herble Pettit
was. And his treatment -et me -was
sure invigorating, . .
"My get-away." Je went on, "I
explained : by saying that I unex
pectedly . had met a man - from
South America who bad given me
information-which called for my.
fn....., A T XT 1- .
an Indefinite period. And every
word of that's the gospel truth.
Your father once stayed In South
America, and he certainly gave me
an earful requiring my presence la
New York long enough to get a
train out ot it. So you won't hare
to soil your pretty Hps with any
thing that isn't the truth. Tell
'em I said I'd write to them as
soon as I got into New York.
Now, enough of them! he add
ed abruply. "I've got more Im
portant i things to say to you. I
want you to refresh your mem
ory, and to tll me every, little
thing you know about Grace Dra
per's devilment last year. Your fa
ther didn't have time-to spHl it
but he said he was sure you would
tell me the whole cursed story."
