China Installs Sets.
Radio telephone sets have been in
stalled at Pckin and Tientsin, China,
covering a gap of 90 miles. These

regular commercial business, have
been broadcasted. Manufacturers in
America report many orders being
received for small sets and it is only
a matter of time before the youth of
China will be experimenting with and
operating radio apparatus.
The new Amateur Radio club for

In places where electric light or
power wires are strung on poles or
housetops grave danger: lies in
stringing radio wires in close prox
imity. Disastrous results in some
places have caused warnings to be
sent out. A broken-radio wire fall

or a serious fine. .'".
Bootlegging is not solely confined
to dealing in illicit liquor. Patent
rights on radio equipment are being
violated on a large scale and the
radio bootlegger who disposes of
this equipment is reaping a fortune
equal to his contemporary in the
"wet goods" line. In quality the
bootleg radio apparatus is just about
the same as the bootleg liquor.

attracted nearly 1,000 Omaha In

Thyroid's Pep Power,
The person with too much thyroid
makes up a considerable part of the
The person with too little thyroid
is generally somewhat agitated about
himself or herself. Some don't like
the looks of a goitrous swelling on
the neck; some object to A changed
expression of the eyes; some arc not
happy about the nervousness and the
irregularity of the heart beat.
Too much thyroid is a condition
which makes for nervousness, appre
hension and worry.
On the other hand, the rule is that
those with too littly thyroid appre
hend nothing and worry less. Some
of them "jes' sets and spits" and
some of them "jes' sets."
Hypothyroidism, or too little thy
roid, may show itself in no way ex
cept through the personality or be
havior. Some are lazy, indifferent,
or without ambition, but are not dis
eased, so far as anybody knows.
Some will not work, but they will
go fishing. Some will work, but they
haven't enough pep to get anywhere.
In fact, that word "pep" about ex
presses it. People with too little thy
roid are "pcpless." People with
enough thyroid have 'pep." People
with too much thyroid have so much
"pep" they are regarded as nervous,
on edge, without poise, badly bal
anced. ' "
But too little thyroid may carry
its subjects beyond the realm of per
sonality and behavior and into the
realm of disease.

Keddy was high up in a beech

angry that he could only look up at
him and chatter.
"You haven't answered my ques

"Perhaps you aren't . a good judge
of beechnuts, l'erhaps I'd better
ask Jasper Jay."
That threat made Frisky Squirrel
angrier than ever. He darted up the
tree as fast as he could scramble. If
he hadn't been so angry he would
have known how utterly useless it
was to try to catch Reddy Wood
pecker when Reddy was looking

YES, THERE IS A BIG
DIFFERENCE IN GASOLINE
And the difference is very ap

but the blame is usually laid on the
spark plugs or the carburetor.
Just keep these facts in mind.,
A motor makes from 1,200 to 3,000
When a low grade of gasoline is used,
one that is not volatile and pure, it
does not respond to the spark quick

is over before it ignites. This un
consumed gasoline is then thrown
off through the exhaust and much
of it often slips down past the piston
revolutions per minute. That's
