TRAVELING PUBLIC. Butter Auditor Cole Receives a Letter From No 0ne Wit" a Load of John Barley The Ft. Wayne Insurance company a Pure Wild cat Concern Trying to Break in the state. It Had a Very Ingenious Scheme Worked Out to Get a State License. Fresh, Sweet and Yellow Free of Tallow Received every Thursday, Kept Constantly on tee Sold at 25c a pound in any quantity from 1 pound to ico pounds Sherman's Grocery instance or request; in the second Instance our laws expressly elates who shall be the agent of a company and all the "power of attorney" agreements and contracts on earth could no more escape this law than an agreement between two parties that "two and two make five" would make that a fact.

Laws cannot be changed by agreements to parties to a contract. As to this company's statement to you that there are several agents In Missisippl who are 'sending them a large amount of business and who have been threatened by me; "that I have male no attempt to prosecute them because I knew I could not win the case, and do not wish to have It tested and the verdict given against me;" it is absolutely false. If they, or any one else, will give me any evidence that any one in Mississippi has sent them, since May, ifl02, or shall hereafter send them, any business (except for himself), I shall very quickly show them whether or not I shall have the law tested, and I know in advance what the verdict of tho court must ant! will be. My advice to you is to let them severely alone, and if you desire to engage in the insurance business, go with some company that complies with our laws, and out of consideration for your friends, advise them to save their money instead of donating it to such concerns as the Old Wayne Mutual Life Insurance Company. Yours very truly, W.

Conservative RUfswrs who drifted past tho building during the afternoon estimate the velocity at miles an hour, but that part of the gale which got as fur dow town as the American Surety building, where the weaOK't bureau instruments are located, registered an average of a mile a minute for the day. It blew C5 miles for one hour early in the morning, and at in the afternoon bad reached a velocity of 64 miles. It had fallen to 4S miles an hour at 6 o'clock last night.

Make Transatlantic certain and Cables May be Laid. The result of recent experiments in Germany with the Pupin system of "leadintr (eleprone circuits to increase the distance, at which articulate speech ran be heard, particularly in.

its application to. cables, have just been made public. Although Prof. Punin some time ago described his invention fully before several scientific societies and patents were known to have been purchased for a fabulous price even in these days of millions nothing has been beard of the practical working of hia remarkable calculations. Tests were made lately in Germany with the co-operation of the German Imperial l'ot and Telegraph office on cables be-'tween Berlin and Potsdam.

By con-i nectiug tip a series of cables coimect-'ing these two points the length of the lino was varied from to 230 miles. At the former distance speech was barely audible on the ordinary cables, but on circuits made up with the In sertion of inductance coils every 4, MO feet, speech was quite clear at the greater distance. With ordinary copper lines the effect was equally marked, a smaller wire being quite as effective as one of much larger size when provided with the proper inductance coils. The real significance of these experiments Is that the satisfactory long telephone communication can now be established between Paris and St. Petersburg or between Berlin and Paris.

As a matter of fact there is nothing but expense to prevent transatlantic telepho- jny and it is quite probable that the shorter submarine telephone cables Mhat will no doubt shortly be laid In tho Mediterdanean, Baltic and North Seas will do much to help solve the mechanical problems inherent to the occ Mr. E.
