At the direction of Chief Forester William S. Graves, tests, of this plan of communication were initiated In this district last season by H. A. Adams, telephone, engineer, who was assisted h\ Everett Cutting. United States signal corps standard sets were selected for the experiment, ami one was placed in position, .after almost interminable difficulties, at the Mud Creek ranger station, near the Lolo hot springs; Montana and another at Beaver Ridpe, Idaho. ' While the air-line distance ue- t\veen the two stations is but 12 '-mile's, the distance by trail is 30 miles, rrtuclr, wf It' almost impassable even with pack animals. At last, however, after mishaps that included pnclt horses off the trail, packs displaced and rolling down mountainsides, and batteries and • equipment all but lost, the antennae ..were hung high on convenient pines.

Stockholm.—English would undoubtedly be the most suitable as a world language, in the opinion of Professor Caruoy of Louvain university, Belgium. 'He made this statement In Lhe'Torn of a reply tp the question addressed by. the Northern Peace society to prominent linguists In various countries as to which language would be best adapted to universal use. After declaring'in favor of 'English, Ml Campy wrote: ' '. • • '• '•'''!•'. ' '"The German and French- languages have.lost their place through;thts'^war. Tlio English language Is a hospitable rone, being, a kind o£ compromise. be twcen the Latin -and -Germanic tongues ;:also it Is simple and is;-s T poli- en by most progressive nations' of.the world, and 1ms pfte of the most betiuti-. ful literatures of'modern times."- Why Moses Foroade Pork.

That dreadful imilnily is rare nowadays becntise we cook our pork thoroughly, and-' :ui.v "trichinae" that, it may contain are killed by-the heat. . Not until recently, however. ' has It come to be known • that trichinosis is really a disease of (ho rat. Pig-sties are usually hiiuntetl by those four- 'footec! vermin, which the pigs often kill and eat, thereby necomlng infected. The pig. however, serves rueivly as an "intermediate Host" for the parasite, which, when taRen*al!ve into the Iranian body,, proceeds to multiply at a fabulous rate, the tiny wqrmllke or- gBnisins'invniling'the tissues with serious and ofttimos fatal results. Anna Gould Aids Aviators. Paris.—The Kcsciusko squadron of American aviators on the Polish'front has found a muoh^ieeded godmother In the Duchess de Talleyrand, formerly Anna Gould of New Tori;. The duchess, has presented l,fX)0 -francs to the .squadron. Tbe\ pilots receive only $25 monthly and their food and winter clothing "therefore •were deficient. • .'

Why Indian le Honored. On a. hillock overlpoking .the town of frobblnsville,' the' county seat of Graham, one of the southwestern counties of North Carolina, Is to be erected a memorial to the Cherolcee Indian warrior • Junaluska, "I ' .tried, t but failed." Junaluska was always re- .ferrred the jsiirly white settlers as the "friendly Indian." He was born in the mouritahjs of Chercilcee couury, Carol Inn,' in 1758. At'tlie battle of Horse Shoe .Bend, Gen. Andrew Jackson with liis white troops-had the Greek Indians-hemmed in sit the-bend< of the river. Junaluska;'who had previously attached himself to Jackson's force's,, .intuitively, grasped the situn-. tion and • swam .-the river ' and cut loose the Creeks' canoes. Being unable to escape iu their boats, the hostile Indians were surrounded by Jackson's men an'd decisively beaten. In recognition of Junnluska'syexpioit and signal assistance to the white 1 men, the movement to place this memprial on the Graham county hillside has been undertaken. . How.
