The members of the Oklahoma and
Kansas Legislature, and are so called
reformers, ought read Judge Pollock's
I opinion on “Regulatory Laws," in the
Label the Boxes.
Every household has large boxes at
least for hats, sometimes for furs and
waists and other articles of dress, and
many small boxes for other belong-
ings. In the hunt for something al-
most forgotten the housekeeper often
squanders precious moments in
searching through every likely deposi-
tory and probably comes upon the
object of her quest In the last box
of the selected group. All this waste
of time and energy can be saved by
the use of labels which record the con-
tents of each box. Some recently
noted captions of this kind were:
“Blue Velvet Hat." “J. B.'s Panama
Hat," "Small Tacks and Nails,'' "Emp-
ty Bottles," “Corks."

New York, Sept. 80—President Vail,
surrounded by a few officials of the
American Telephone and Telegraph
company, picked up the transmitter In
his office here and called John J.
Carty, the chief engineer at San Fran-
cisco. The latter replied almost in-
stantaneously and the men conversed
for several minutes In a clear, distinct
The transmission of audible speech
to Europe by wirelesa can be taken as
an assured fact, In the opinion of offi-
cials of the company here who added
that it would have been attempted be-
fore this but for the European war.
They declared that talking from New
York across the Atlantic and from here
to Japan is now but a matter of in-
stalling the necessary apparatus.
Inlaid linoleum when first laid
should be given a coat of good floor
polish made of wax and pure oils free
from acids of any nature. This should
be well rubbed into the linoleum to
fill the pores, then the linoleum should
be polished. When necessary to clean
use a good soap, which must be free
from alkalies, and luke-warm water. Do
not use soda or any of the strong
soaps or cleansing compounds, which
are apt to destroy the finish and color.
Some prefer that the inlaid should be
polished once each month with a good
floor wax. but the soap and water
method is believed to be the best.
Washington, Sept. 80 —Wireless
telephone connection across the conti-
nent was accomplished for the first
time today, when experiments extend-
ing over several months culminated In
successful transmission of the human
voice by radio from the great naval
plant at Arlington, Va., across the

under direction of Captain Bullard,
chief of the navy's radio service, in
co-operation with the American Tele-
phone and Telegraph company, and
the Western Electric company.
Secretary Daniels announced the re-
sult last night and predicted that fur-
ther development of wireless tele-
phony would make great changes in
long-distance communication, both for
military and naval service. In commer-
cial usage. Successful operations of a
device for automatically transferring
to the radio telephone conversations
originating on metallic circuits also
was accomplished in today’s tests.
President Theodore N. Vail and oth-
er officials of the American Telephone
company at New York talked easily
with the Mare Island station, the con-
versations traveling over an ordinary
metallic line from New York to Arling-
ton and thence by radio across the
