Marconi chose the strip of beach Poole Harbor because it is remote. "Here,” he said one day. “I can be alone •nd <lo my work without fear of inter ruption. and what I once do here on a •mall scale, I can do anywhere in a larg er wav.” The chemist leases that he holds the world in a crucible; so he does 1n elements, and a chemical fact one a proved in his laboratory Is true every where. So it is with Marconi's laboratory with reference to wireless telegraphy,, •nd he is proving important facts an l making discoveries of principles that will hold when ether wav* shall be as fear lessly handled, end spoken of as ly as the steam engine or the electrical current is to-day. Whnt Marconi Ik Seeking. It is now almost year since Prof. Fleming of University College. London, addressed the British Association for the Advancement of Science, on wireless teleg raphy, and, in sending gre* ting* by the Marconi system te the French Associa tion across the channel db ov : and ihat soitk- of the messages exchanged were de tected fifty miles beyond their destination. Messages sent from Boulogne to Dover were read in the , at ions at Chelmsford •way across the hills of Kent and beyond the fog and smoko of London town. The achievement was remarkable, even though the public refused to be surprised. Proba bly nothing short of wireless messages half way round the world would excite unusual interesi now. and doubtless many are wondering whe.her anything more will come of wireles-s telegraphy than has al ready been accomplished. But Marconi has not been contented to •top at the attainment of a hundred miles. There were and are s;ill too many un solved problems for him to r. >t his labors. To prevent the inter■ pti< n < f <\: patches •nd the “jamming" of tin* ins;i ;im* nts, to attain longer db.aiKcs., to m:ts:er the se cret of “tuned'' ether wav. s. and to ; p ply the system practically to shipping so as to increase the safety of vessels at •ea—these were a few of the things he has set out to do. Already the li t'.e strip of coast near Poole's Harbor has witnessed some of these solutions. The writer had the plensi - I of spend ing several weeks recently w 1 h Marconi at the Poo’.e stall n. and of watch ing •he work from day today. Hn<% morn ing began with r wireless conversation with the Isle of Wight station, when or ders were given to the man there to “stand by" later in the day and meantime to look out for any unusual **theiial” oc currences. The English navy was exper imenting with wireless telegraphy at Portsmouth, forty miles beyond, anti the Isle of Wight installation kept up a lively action while thes** experiments w. re going on. Asa rule Marconi wn kept informed •s to the progress of tin* navy, while the navy was unable to "tap” his messages. It was not a fair game, as the admiralty begett to realize. Now they have arrang ed with Marconi for the installation of his •ystem with the latest improvements on some forty vessels. But that, in spite of lls Importance, is another story. Nothing is ever attempt'd at Marconi's laboratory that lias ever boon done before. To be sure, the stations were set up along the beach in the sairrc way •< h morning, but no fact once discovered and verb -d needed to be repeated. Man-'M's r.uylim U.

To the laymaivit would that Mar coni's station* were set up in the same way avtry day, but the initiated observer could not fi to see that there were dif ferent arrangements each day, and at no time was there a station at Poole like the pole-suspended wire we have come to as sociate with wireless telegraphic appar otu- The vertical wire was replaced by a cylindrical can scantling on end and the earth wire by a similar can lying so as to make good connection. To the regular transmitting and receiving Instru ments were added coils and resistances for the purpose of varying the capacities of iupright cylinders. For better con du ting. Ihe receiving station was placed nra! the w ater’s edg**, Itnd the earth can partly sunk iq the wet sand. The instru ments were generally arranged on tables, and in heavy winds, of which there were many, the vertical cans had to be stayed with guys to keep them in position.

Marconi began a seri* s of experiments la?i winter w hich have already led to the discovery of many j important facts in regard to wireless telegraphy, and have solved many of the I most elusive problems that have ever been I encounter dt in the development o’ anew science. Marconi often works syn hetically in stead of analytically. He doesn’t waste litre and *nergy asking why a certain cause produces a certain effect; lie says, "This cause does produce this effect; l don’t know just why, but it works this way. and that is enough.” This attitude of mind has led many to charge Marconi with being a business man instead of a scientist, and, in so far as being scientist means being impractical, this accusation holds good. Marconi is in truth h scien tist. but he constructs his conclusions from actual e\|>erimens and then veri fies those results by theoretical proof, in stead of making conclusions and verifying by actual trials. “My mind works that way,” says Mar- coni, in speaking of the subject. “I tar ry a sort of ;raveling library about me," he added, pointing to a pile of the most abstruse scientific works, “which I read witji a great deal of Interest, and yet I don't work out my problems in the same wav. Bui I get a great deal of satisfac tion when I verify actual experiments by mathematical proof and find everything jan it should bt ’ The scientific spirit is | certainly not lacking in the young man of | ?*’ who fimte in rending treatises on exact electric measurements, variations of vibrations, differential cal culus and kindred topics. Solved flit* “Tniills'* I’rohlrm. The most widespread cry ngainst the usefulness of wireless telegraphy has been been based on the fact that in te ceptlon of and spatches was for a long time possible. It may not have occurred to the objectors that the same fault may be found with wire system of signalling. Hut by mentis of variable conductors and capacities, Macon! has worked out a sys tem by which only certain Instruments can receive certain messages, A. hundred wireless instruments tapping out a hun dred different messages or recording a hundred different dispatches from as many different places ranging in distance up to —let us soy—one hundred miles would be most marvellous, yet Marconi is now able to do that and much more. He has taken up the old problem of “tuning" messages and worked It out practically. He obtained his results on.'y after many experimr ms—one cannot realize how many without having seen them. There is an infinite number of possibilities, but once the proper relation is established between the transmitter and receiver, only a re turn to that relation will bring the true result. A slight variation of the proper resistance at either end is enough to make the receiver inoperative. It is easy to #!' how almost any number of sets of instruments may be arranged, and with a different ratio or relation each acting without Interference from any of the orh | ors. There is a familiar analogy in dif ! ferent tuning forks responding 10 differ j rut notes of a piano, only in the electric | tuning there arc many more possibilities, ! since the electric vibrations range from j one million to billions per second. When the ether wave maker produces a vlbra i tion of 400,0C0,00),000 per second he creates ►light, and when be gets a vibration of trillions per second, he has the X-ray. The problem of prevention cf intercepted messages has been attack? 1 by M Tom masi, who. as reported recently *o the A -ademie .les Signers, used two transmit ters at each station, one of which trans mits the desired message, and the other termed the “blind" transmit ter—a series | of meaningless dot and flashes. By keep ing the range of the blind transmitter a little less than the other, the apparatus J may be arranged so tlm only the real message Is received at the station and any i receiver interposed for the purpose of tap ping will receive both message and the | jumble of a r dots and dashes, so that | the real message is not distinguishable. Multiplex \erlnl MeMangrn. But this plan does not obviate the pos sibility of *n outsider setting up a receiver very near the o her and out of range of the blind transmitter, nor >;et of setting lup a countci transmitter ’ which shall “join" ul! signals Intended for the regular , station. .Marconi's present arrangement ' pro veil is interception of niessages or Jam j niir.g of instruments, and. moreover, per mits the use of a large number of installa tions in the same place. In reality he has improved on the multiplex system of wire telegraphy which is so useful. In the use of the arlnl wire.

JULY 23. 1900. ! often found that ihe vertical wire would | become charged with atmospheric elec tricity and the operator might receive a shock in making the change from ihe transmitting to th< receiver cir- u!, the air and earth wires being directly connected to the receiver. This difficulty was obviated by laseri ing a small induction coil in the receiving circuit, the primary of which is connect ed to the coherer and the secondary to the earth and air wires. The ether waves act on the coherer by induction and the atmospheric electricity cannot since it has free passage to the earth. Another recent improvement is a modi fication of the Morse key by which the “change-over” from the transmitter to the receiver may be made automatically.. This prevents the operator from acciden tally operating the transmitter when the vertical wire is being used in receiving. Per*l*tencc, Patience and Pluck. Marconi sometimes works clays with out apparent result, but he is never dis cour .aged. "I am about as well satisfied,’ said he one day, “when I fail in an experiment as when I succeed, because if I try u thing faithfully once and it does not work. I can dismiss that possibility. After i have tried a great many tilings that fail 1 get the thing that succeeds, and I don’t have to repeat experiments in. future trials.*’ It was interesting to watch him in the “tuning” experiments. There was as much satisfaction in his face when one of his assistants signalled that no effect was produced as when strong effect wiv noted, he simply varied capacities and resistances until the right relation w>s produced. Then he began another series o? experiments. One day he was asked: “How do you know this is radiation? Isn’t it earth leakage?" For answer he disconnected the vertical wire and pressed the key. There was no effect on the re ceiver down the beach. “We don’t know all about this yet,” he said, "but we know the effect of the few things we have tried. I believe it is ra diation—ether waves. The scientists have theories about it,” he went on, “but very tittle is known. It seems curious that the.-e waves should follow the earth’s ; curvature, as we know they do. One man ; believes they collect at a point on the other side of the earth—the antipodal point of the transmitter-and that may be true.” In the evening Marconi reviews the work he has done during the day, and plans the experiments for the A day’s work is a valuable thing to him. because he has the feeling that to-morrow may bring some great development. No kind of weather hinders him. He will only stop work in the rain when it is severe . enough to “short circuit” his batteries or make a shock from the key possible. On stormy days, when work outside is im possible, indoor experiments are carried on from one room to another. The spirit j of work is dominant, and it is always in- j telUgent work. “ ’K rout** us out at night | sometimes,” said one of his assistants, j “At Salisbury we started work one morn- i ing at one o’clock because the nights were good and the days bad.” Persistence, pa tience and pluck are embodied in Mar coni. Drugged Miles by n Hull non. The spirit with which he works is il lustrated by one of his experiences at Salisbury. For days he worked trying c* periments with Vertical wires hold up 1y balloons and kites. High winds playe 1 havoc with the kites, but there was no giving up until good weather came so that a fair trial could be had. On one ooeas sion a balloon broke loose, but Marconi seized the trailing rope and thought to make nn anchor of himself by winding the rope al>out his waist. The baboon, however, was not to be restrained, and, after dragging Marconi four miles across country, it left him against a fence which happened to be in the way. I haven’t any proof, but I venture to say that the young man made his way back and went on with his work, without the interference of u surgeon. It would be like him. At present Marconi is busy with plans for the extension of his work along the line of greater distances than before at tempted and with contracts for the use of the system at sea. as well as on land, where wire systems are not in use. One of his men is at Burkum, Germany, com pleting the establishment of the installa tions for ihe North German Lloyd steam ships and making stations at a Hghthous.* and lightship there. Another assistant is locating stations on six of the Hawaiian Islands and instruments for the complete outfit are now on thy way there. The use of the system in South Africa has been chiefly confined to signalling be tween the Kngßsh ships along the ebaat and stations on land, though Ird Rob erts has made good use* of it on land in some instances. During the recent fear of a Boer p’.of to blow up the English ships the wireless system showed its advantage. The International Company, recently or ganized in France, will place the Marconi system in use along rhe French coast and on the French naval fleet. In addition to all these operations, the installation of the system on forty English warships should ke-ep Marconi busy for some time. Certainly the wireless telegraph has. ceased to he a scientific toy; it bids fair to be one of the most important elements of the future world’s work. Hut Marconi lakes it all modestly. “I don’t think I have done very much yet,” he remarks, “but I am young and perhaps I may yet do something worth while.” Horbern Wallace.

Harvie Jordan of the Cotton Growers' Protective Asscociation. will address a large assemblage of far mers in Americas next Saturday, July 28, upon the important subject of marketing the cotton crop to the best advantage. Several hundred farmers of Sumter anti adjoining counties will come in to hear them. Seasonable rains have fallen within the past week and crop prospects continue good. The corn crop, already made, will \yc the largest and best in several years. The cotton prospect is likewise good ut ibis Htn". though a protracted drought now would injure it greatly. Americus needs more dwelling houses. There is hardly a desirable house vacant in the city. Americus merchants look forward to the besi fall and winter trade in ten years, and many who leave this week and next for tin North will buy stocks accordingly. Even at ibis season, usually the dullest of the year, business is quite satlsfatory, and all Indications point to a splendid trade during the cotton st ason. Between 75,000 and 80,000 hale* of cotton were handled in Americus during the past season and the warehouses and compress did a splendid business. Receipts during the next season will be quite us good, or better. Ill** W IFE h\\\ III>I DROWN \ml w Vv lend Will* M. 11. Mclliikli Died From Heart Disease. Jacksonville, Fla., July 22.—M. R.

Ga., July 22. —Much interest is being manifested in Dublin over the com ing meetings of the Georgia State Horti cultural Society ard the Slate Agricul tural Society on Aug. 1 and 8. Recently the County Commissioners donated $l5O :o the fund being raised by the citizens of Dub lin for the entertainment of the members of i h se societies, and the City Council of Dublin added $1 o to the fund. It is probable that a part of the entertainment will consist of a ride down the Oconee upon the steamers City of Dublin and R. c. Henry. Vo terday the Populist par.y of this county met at the Court House for the purpos' of considering the refusal of Mr John Wilkes to accept the nominat on of Senator and Mr. E. L. Wade, the nomi nation to the oflice of sheriff. Mr. Wade s reisurs were considered good, and Mr. A. M Biown was substituted in his stead, but Mr. Wilkes was prevailed upon to consider the matter for another week. The impression is that he will agree to be came a candidate in w'hich event the full ’icket will br* as follows: Senator, John# Wilkes; representative. J. R. Baggett; or c3l rary, M. S.

Claxton is preparing to take care of teachers and visitors in good shape, and i is hoped that all wtl! have a pleasant and profitable time. DESTRUCTIVE FI HE IN ALBANY. Opera House and Other BnJldlngi Burned lit u Loss of A'-.ruHt. Albany,' Ga,, July 22.—Fire broke out shortly Ix fore 12 o'clock laet night in the Sale-Davis Opera House block, which nar rowly escaped complete destruction. The blaze originated in the cellar of the Albany Furniture Company's establish ment at the corner of Broad and Jackson streets and was raging fiercely when the firemen reached the scene. It was fin ally got under control, however, after .t splendid fight. The principal losers are the Albany Furniture Company and the Sale-Davis Drug Company, 40 whom the building be longed. The Albany Furniture Com pany carried a .-lock valued at from *7,000 to $9,000 and insurance of less than **5.000 In the Hartford, the Traders of Chicago, the Hanover and the Continental. On the building and opera house furnishings, the Sale-Davis Drug Company probably suf fered a loss of $3,500, a portion of which was in the Hamburg-Bremen, the Hart ford, the Western of Toromo and the Phoenix of London. The names of the other companies involved could not be learned this morning. The total loss is estimated at about $8,500, most of which is covered by insur ance. THE LETTER W \S A FAKE.
