Honor Were Even
A man was sitting beside the bed of

Said the latter: :
'Tve got a confession to make. Ten
years ago I robbed the firm of 50,000
I sold the blue prints of your Inven
tion to the rival firm I ptole the let
' ters that were used against you in
your divorce case."
"Don't worry" said his partner.
"Don't worry I poisoned you I"

Da Vinci Had Vision
of Conquest of Air
Artists and writers are commonly
supposed to be Impractical people, and
yet we were reminded only the other
day by u local colorist that Leonardo
da Vinci wrote the first treatise on
nieelmnhiil flight and demonstrated
the principles of the parachute. Du
Vinci was a painter, sculptor and mili
tary and civil engineer. He was ulso
an architect, and drew the first tech
uical design for Imitation wings. In
his device the flyer was to occupy n
horizontal position and work the fly
ing stroke with his arms and feet by
means of ropcS passing over pulleys.
The winj:s resembled those of the but.

Wants No Deputyship
, Pendleton, Or., Oct. 22,
In all political campaigns both
large and small there are found mis
representations and false statements
designed to injure candidates and dis
turb the equanimity of the voting
Having served as Sheriff to the best
of my ability for the past four years
and desiring to see the best interests
of Umatilla County maintained I am
sincerely anxious to see Mr. Charles
Hoskins elected as my successor,
Therefore, I take this method and op
portunity to deny certain false rum
ors that have been and are being cir
culated to the effect that I am plan-
ning to become a deputy sheriff and
hold such a position under Mr. Hos
Such a position has not entered my
thought and Mr. Hoskins has never
mentioned the matter or suggested
such a possibility to me. He knows
the law precludes such an arrange
ment and making any promises be
fore his election would be a serious
I am sure these rumors are be
ing promulgated for the purpose o
injuring Mr. Hoskins in his campaign
and I am making this statement with
out his knowledge for the purpose of
setting at ease all those who have
any suspicion that I am in any way
going to try to influence his policies
when he is elected.

Walter M. Pierce
Ladies Worried Lawmaker
About the time that women began
to flutter their wings and, Indeed, In
1S06 they, were wearing bellowed
sleeves, the Britisii parliament waxed
Indignant that ladies were Invading
without precedent Its sacred precincts.
But a London paper at once reminded
that "Ladles attended parliament In
droves more than 200 years ago. The
Lord Shaftesbury of the time, an aus
tere personage, complained of these
droves, and once the speaker caused
shouts of laughter by suddenly de
claring In the midst of a debate that
he could espy petticoats. After this,
evidently not wishing to be seen so
much, the ladies came less often and
sometimes they came In disguise."

Telephone Typewriter Installation at Police
Headquarters, New York City,
Y means of the printing tele
graph service, or the tele
phone typewriter as it is com
ing to be known, instant transmis.
elon ot communications between
distant offices, factories, etc., ia
made available, providing each
connected unit of the organization
with typewritten copies ' simul
taneously. In other words, the
telephone typewriter makes pos
sible typewriting at a distance.
The telephone typewriter service
was first used in 1917 by one ot the
large press associations whose ex
acting requirements it met admir
ably, but recently it has been
adapted to other commercial users
and particularly to large industries
having a widespread organization.
A one' feature ot the program
involving the new communication
system of the New York City Po
lice Department, a telephone type
writer switching system has been
installed which provides communi
cation between General Police
Headquarters, Manhattan, and all,

the borough police headquarters
and to all the Manhattan precincts,
also from each of the four borough
headquarters outside of Manhattan
to each precinct station, in that
borough and to other strategic
points. The complete system com
prises more . than 100 telephone
typewriter sets.
This service was officially turned
over to the Police Department by
the New York Telephone Com
pany, Mayor Walker sending the
opening message in the presence
of President McCulloh and other
telephone and police officials. The
following day a stolen truck con
taining $10,000 worth of merchan
dise was recovered forty-five min
utes after its loss was reported,
through a description sent to all
precincts in Manhattan by the aid
ot this system.
The system Is arranged so that
an operator at headquarters may
send from a keyboard to any one
precinct, to any group, or elmul'
taneously to all precincts, the mes
sages being printed automatically,
in page form at the receiving ma
chines, which are placed close, to
the desk of the officer in charge of
the precinct A signal lamp is as
sociated with each line so that the
receipt ot a message may be
acknowledged by each station.
Lines are also provided for incom
ing messages from the headquar
ters in the other four boroughs.
Telephone typewriter service Is
also being furnished on a some
what smaller scale to the police de
partments in St. Louis and Boston,
and to twelve cities in Connecti
