WHAT IS CHRISTMAS

Washington, Dec. 3.-The wireless
telegraph as a means of carrying to
the farmers agrictltural-market news
such as prices and conditions, is to be
tested by the Department of Agricul-
ture in cooperation with the Bureau
of Standards. The experiment is to be
tried in half a dozen Maryland and
Virginia counties adjacent to the Dis-
trict of Columbia and if successful
will be extended over, the country.
Plans Laid
The plans contemplate the eventual
use of 17 wireless stations over the
country. The wireless 'news of mar-
ket conditions and prices will be sent
broadcast and arrangements will be
made with numerous private licensed
operators who would aid in' distribut-
ing the reports to farmers and others
interested in the territory covered.
10 Stations First
Present plans for the system pro-
vide for the use of 10 wireless sta-
tions with a 250-mile radius, eight in
the East where market centers are
more numerous and closer together,
and two in the far West; two 300-mile
radius stations to reach the outlying
points of Maine and New York, to be
located in the northeastern part of the
country, and five 500-mile radius sta-
tions west of the Mississippi river.

Each of the distributing radio sta-
tions would be connected with the
Washington headquarters and other
distributing stations by leased tele-
graph wires of the present market
news service of the department, and
twice a day woul receive for imme-
diate release by wireless a summarized
report of market conditions and quota-
tions at the principal market centers
and shipping points. Detailed reports
of market conditions in the immediate
territory served would also be re-
leased, as well as crop and weather
[reports issued by the Department of
Agriculture.
Upper Peninsula Logging Curtailed
Houghton, Mich., Dec. 3.-Because
of conditions in industrial lines in
the Copper country and the with-
drawal of the mining companies from
the timber market, a curtailment of
from 35 to 40 per cent in the logging
business has become necessary, ac-
cording to members off the Upper
Peninsula Loggers' association, who
discussedhthe situation at a meeting
here. The curtailment already has
gone into effect in the woods and at
the mills in the district.
