"VEST POCKET" WIRELESS SET IS
MADE PRACTICAL BY NEW YORKER
Bedford Hills, N. Y. A compact
and efficient wireless receiving and
sending apparatus, invented recently
by Dr. H. Barringer Cox, of this place,
is to be lent to one of the foreign pow
ers for use in the trenches, according
to announcement of the inventor.
The device, which may be strapped
around the waist and deftly hidden by
the folds of a cloak so as to be invis
ible to an unsuspecting person, is in
reality a "vest-pocket" wireless ap
paratus, as complete as any.
The sending apparatus consists of a
box in which are five dry cells and a
viDrator. The electric pulsations are
started by tapping a telegraph key,
and the current, which the doctor says
is modified with a hidden transformer
of his own invention, sends out its
messages in waves, long and short,
The equivalent to a half watt, or one-
eightieth as much as is required for
the ordinary electric light bulb is the
amount of electricity necessary. From
the box projects a wire.
In warfare use this wire is carried
down the leg of the soldier and con
nected with a metal plate or Bpur in
the shoe. The receiving instrument
consists of a drum about which is
coil of wires. On top of this iB a fine
deflector. It has a pair of ear-pieces
such as is worn by telephone operators.
Dr. ,Uox can send and receive mes
sages by this instrument over a dis
tance of 18 miles. When he desires
to receive a message be raises his cane.
Stock Exchange Clerks Overworked.
New York So tremendous has been
the volume of trading on the stock ex
change this week that several prom
inent brokerage houses announced that
they were considering the advisability
of asking the board of governors of
the exchange to declare Monday a full
holiday, in order to give their over
worked clerks a rest. Many firms have
been obliged to work their forces day
and night. In one house two clerks
were taken away in an ambulance in
an exhausted condition.
The exchange governors, when ap
proached on the subject of closing the
exchange, maintained that they had no
right to cut off the security business
of the country on such short notice.
The promise was held out, however,
that should the great volume of trad
ing continue next week, the declara
tion of a special stock exchange holt
day would be considered.
Chicago Under Sunday Lid.
Chicago Mayor Thompson, in i
message to the city council, announced
that the owners of all saloons in Chi
cago hereafter would be forced to obey
the state law, which provides that
they remain closed on Sunday. The
mayor ordered the city collector to
notify in writing all persons holding
licenses for saloons that they must
comply with the requirements of the
state law. For many years owners of
saloons in Chicago have defied the
state law governing their operation on

Third Alfalfa Crop Put In.
Portland Following is a Bummary
of the crop conditions in Oregon for
the week, as reported to the local office
of the weather bureau by special cor
respondents throughout the state :
Although showers fell in the West
ern counties on the 23d, 24th and in
some limited areas of North Central
Oregon on the 24th, which benefited
pastures and gardens to some extent,
there is still need for rain in all por
tions of the state.
The warm weather has been favor
able for the maturing of fruit and gar
den truck. The picking and drying of
prunes has been about completed and
the harvesting of apples and pears has
begun. In the Eastern Oregon valleys
the peach crop was very heavy and the
quality excellent, but owing to an
over-supplied market many tons of the
choicest fruit is going to waste.
Threshing has been practically com
pleted, and the farmers are preparing
the soil for seeding, but little wheat
will be sown until the fall rains have
While waiting for the rain, ranchers
are hauling their wood and winter sup
plies. Irrigated crops of alfalfa are very
good, and the third crop is being put
up in some sections.
Tomatoes are plentiful and of excel
lent quality. Seasonable fruits and
vegetables are in the local markets in
abundance, and the quality is very
Cranberries Are Popular.
Tacoma Cranberries are proving
unusually popular with the trade and
the supply on the local produce market
is good. As a substitute for black
berries, dealers say, cranberries are
what is wanted. The berries are roll
ing in from Cape Cod and are of fine
size and color and hold up unusually
well in shipment. They are quoted
wholesale at $9.6010 per barrel. This
week saw the first appearance this
season of grapefruit from the Isle of
Pines. The first receipts are a trifle
green and are bringing 15 cents each.
Egg Prices Go Up.
Tacoma Some dealers Bent prices
on fresh ranch eggs soaring and whole
Bale quotations now are from 36 to 38
cents a dozen. Cold storage eggs re
main steady at 27(a28 cents a dozen.
The rise in the fresh product is at
tributed to a scarcity and an advance
of the ruling market of Puget Sound.
Butter and cheese are unchanged. Fa
vorable weather conditions have pro
longed the tomato season and the best
ones to be had are offered at 4550c a
box. Cantaloupes, grapes and apples
are among the leading sellers.

SIR ROBERT L BORDEN
Sir Robert L. Borden, premier of
Canada, recently visited Great Brit
ain and France for the purpose of dis
cussing with the authorities the co
operation of the Dominion In the war,
Couriers by boat and train as well as
mail advices brought in reports of tre
mendous property loss and rumors of
many drowned along both Bides of the
Mississippi river south of here.
Boat passengers arriving from Em
pire, near Doulloth canal, about 50
miles down the Mississippi, reported
that only four large houses still Btood
at Empire and that about 200 persons
were marooned in them. The state
conservation commission here started
a rescue vessel for that point.

reported marooned and some were said
to be clinging to tree tops. Relief
vessels were sent to rescue them.
Bay St. Louis, Miss., on the Gulf
cost, reported one dead and property
loss will run into millions.
Removes Bar to Wireless.
New York The invention of a de
vice with which it is hoped to prevent
static interference with wireless com

Talcum Powder Is Taxed.
Trenton, N. J. Federal Judge Rell
stab has decided that talcum powder
used for toilet purposes is a cosmetic
and taxable, and the seizure of a quan
tity of the article by the government

of New York, to determine whether
under Schedule B of the emergency
stamp tax act of October 22, 1914, tsl

as on a cosmetic. U. S. District Attor
ney Davis said at least $500,000 in rev
enue was involved in the test suit.
Part of Deckload Lost.

One of the woeful aspects of soup-
making in the pre-enamel-ware

iron kettle; for washing a kettle big

day, however, one can have the trim
enameled kettle In any size, light, yet
strong, and all It needs Is hot suds
and a good rinsing to make it beauti

MAKES A SPLENDID DESSERT
French Way of Serving Peart Will Be
Found About the Best That Hal
A French Pear Dessert. Every
Frenchwoman knows the value of com
bining cooked fruit with cereal for the
family dessert. Here is her favorite
way of serving pears: Peel, core and
cut in halves half a dozen firm pears.
Cook them slowly for an hour in a
sirup of two cupfuls of water and one
of sugar. Meantime boil in a double
boiler for about an hour a half cupful
of rice in two cupfuls of milk, with a
small piece of butter and sugar and
vanilla to taste. When the rice Is
cooked turn It into a mold. The French
cook keeps the rice warm while It is
setting in the mold, but it would prob
ably suit the American taste better to
place the mold on ice. When ready to
serve turn tbe rice out on a round dish
and arrange the pears neatly in a bor
der. Pour over them the sirup in
which they have been cooked, flavored,
if desired, with a little rum.
Canned Pears. Bartlett pears are
considered by many housekeepers the
beBt for canning. If not perfectly ripe
they can be easily mellowed by wrap
ping them up in a woolen blanket, but
they must be a little under rather than
over-ripe for canning. To every quart
jar allow seven or eight medium-sized
pears, a pint of water and one-fourth
pound of sugar. Cut the fruit In halves,
pare, core and throw at once Into cold
water to prevent discoloration. Put the
sugar and water first into a preserv
ing kettle and let heat slowly; when
the scum appears remove it carefully.
and as soon as the sirup bolls hard add
the fruit and boil all together from
three to ten minutes.
Put a cloth wet in cold water around
the jar when putting In the hot fruit,
in order to prevent breakage, and fur
ther make sure against this by putting
In a couple of pears and a little juice
at a time. When the jar is full run a
silver knife down the sides of it to let
out the air bubbles, and seal tightly
while the fruit is still hot. Canned
pears should be kept In a cool, dark
Seckel pears, which may be canned
In the same way, are best when picked
directly from the tree and canned at
once. If too hard both they and the
Bartletts may be boiled for ten min
utes or less before putting them In the
