SUCCESS REALTY COMPANY
Mail Oar Fire
Last Saturday as Mail Carrier
Bailey was making his run from
Weatherford, to Colony, a mail
sack filled with papers and parc-
els which was tied on the car
fender, was discovered to be on
fire. Quick work saved the car
and its load of mail, except the
one sack which was burned,
only a few pieces being rescued
from it. The fire is thought to
have caught from the exhaust.
Photographs have been sue
cessfully cabled across the Atlan-
tic. The first pictures transmit-
ted were probably those taken
in New York, of the recent
international yacht race and re-
produced a few hours later in a
London, newspaper. There are
several methods of transmiting
photographs by wire and even
by wireless electricity, but the
system followed in cabling the
yacht pictures is probably the
best. The negative containing
the photograph is ‘‘coded,” or
prepared for transmission by an
ingenious device which reduces
the picture to an arrangement
of messages which resemble an
ordinary cable code and can be
transmitted as such. This mes-
sage can be handed into a tele-
graph office for transmition like
any other message. On being
received on the other side of the
At lantic this message is placed
in a machine resembling an ord-
inary typewriter and is in turn
reproduced by a series of holes
in a long tape. The tape is then
placed in the reproducing
machine with an undeveloped
plate and after being transmitted
the plate is placed in a develop-
ing bath which reproduces the
original picture in every detail.
Some details are lost in the
sending, but it is promised that
the machine will soon he per-
fected and long distance trans-
mission of photographs will be
