Found by a Camper In the Blue
Weston, Aug. 27. Frank Patlson, a
camper In tho Blue mountains, found
a deserted camp in tho hills near
Fletcher's saw mill last Sunday,
which had apparently been loft last
year vory suddenly and tho owner
had novor returned. Blankets, cook
ing utensils nnd everything which
goes to mako up a perfectly appor
tioned camp were found. From all
indicatioiis tho camp had been tho
abiding place of two mom. They had
either left vory hurriedly or had gone
nway with tho intention of returning,
but for somo cause nover did so.
Patlson had been out hunting and
became separated from tho rest of
his crowd. Ho was beating his way
through tho underbrush at tho head
of a small stream. Suddenly ho broko
through tho brush Into an opening
which showed every ovldenco of hav
ing been a clearing by somo human
hands. After looking around Patlson
discovered a plnco which had been
rudely constructed for a fireplace.
Near this wero several blankets and
comforters. They had been thcro so
long that they were decayed. Over
tho fireplace sat a kettlo and frying
pan, bucket and two cups woro sitting
near. Patlson turned over tho blank
ets to mako an Investigation nnd

from tho country or got away from

Plan for Communication Between Air
ships and the Earth by Wireless
World's Fair, St. Louis, Aug. 27.
Before his sudden departure for
France a few days ago Santos-Du-
mont, the aeronaut, discussed with
W. W. Bradfield, Marconi's Amerlcau
manager, a plan contemplating tho
use of the Marconi wireless telegra
phy in connection with the airships.
M. Santos' idea is to take with him
into the clouds at the World's Pair
aerial exhibltons in 1904, one of the
lightest of the Marconi outfits and
thus establish wireless communica
tion with the airships. The airship
inventor has already learned tho
wireless alphabet and is learning to
send a certain code of signal sen
tences. Tho two Instruments, tho re
ceiver and tho transmitter, with tho
batteries, weigh only a few pounds,
and as tho ship has a capacity of
five persons, but will havo nobody but
Santos-Dumont on board at tho tlmo,
the scheme is thought to bo perfectly
practicable. "To go by yourself on a
trip of this kind," said M. Santos,
"Is, of course, a Httlo lonesome, but
to havo a machine by your sldo which
practically talks to you would bo
like a companion."
