Telegraphic communication all over
the country was almost * demoralized
Saturday by what is commonly termed
yy wire chiefs of telegraph offices as
"northern lights" or "earth currents , "
which ground the wires so heavily ,
even crossing them , go that communi
cation is practically impossible. In
many cases the wires go open for ri
minute or two and then close , and con
tinue doing this for hours. The north
ern lights arc visible at night , and If
a person Is lucky enough to be lookIng -
Ing toward the north when the lights
appear there will be reward In seeing
flames shooting up In the far north.
The earth currents , which last gener
ally about two or three hours at u
time , make their visits liore ns a rule
once In three or four yeais. nbotit this
time of the year. Probably thcmo suf-
feiiiiK mfis-tly from thp inu-nuptioii

mean a damage claim. Tlio AwHociat-
led Press wire running into The News
i office , nncl those Into Omaha , gave
