The woman who cannot look well In an
evening gown this season Is a hopeless
proposition, for the deslKners have offered
an amaslng latitude of lino and period. To
be sure, there Is still the slender silhouette.
The femliilno Insistence upon that point
gave a s ight check to the autumn move
ment toward full skirts and materials of
more body; hut this insistence has brought
about a happy state of affairs.
The dressmakers, while making the con

pasHlon for flowing lines and as a result
we have drapery without clumsiness and a
type of clinging slenderness devoid of the

The New Zealand lmuie of representa
tives has empowered the executive to make
regulations requiring passenger ships to
cany wireless telegraphy apparatus. It Is
probable that some vessels trading between
New Zealand and Australia will be fitted
with the necessary apparatus within a few
months. New Zealand is standing out
against tha recent movement to connect the
Pacific Islands, Australia and New Zealand,
because the government wishes to await
new developments. The prime minister
states that both Mr. Marconi and M. Teala
Informed him recently that great advances
would probably be made upon existing sys
tems. Hlr Joseph Ward adds that within
twelve months New Zealand will probably
adopt a syKtem which will ensble. communi
cation with Australia to be carried on by
day or by night. A conference of represen
tatives of Australia, New Zealand and the
Pacific Islands will meet at Melbourne on
December 18. .
During the last few weeks negotiations
have been taking placje between a repre
sentative of the Marconi company and tha
Natal government with regard to the estab
lishment of a long-distance wireless station
In the vicinity of Pletermarluburg to con
nect with the Intermediate stations at
Mombasa and Aden. Mr. Vyvyan, who has
coma out to Natal In connection with the
schema of Imperial wireless telegraphy, has
applied for a license to erect a station-, such
station at tha end of twenty years to be
come the property of the government. Tha
company, however, stipulate for a fourth
share of the net receipts (which It Is esti
mated will be equal to 5 per cent on tha
capital employed) for a further period of
twenty years, the station at the end ot that
period to become tha absolute property of
the government. Tha company, It Is under
stood, asks tor no exclusive rights, and
guarantees to charge not mora than 26
cents a word for ordinary niessages and
not more than I'i cents for government or
press niessages. The chief objection put
forward against the grant of the license Is
said to be that if the Natal government
grants a Jlcenae, and tha Imperial govern
ment refuses to allow the Marconi company
to erect Intermediate atations on British
territory, tna way will ba paved for a
foreign wireleaa servica between South
Africa and tngland, tha alternative eastern

route to Mombasa and Aden being by
Italian Somallland and Italy. However,
even If Natal refused a license a station
could be erected In Portuguese territory.
Experiments have been made In Swit
zerland showing that tha higher altitudes
provide exceptionally favorable locations
for wlrelets telegraph receiving stations.
Messages coming from points within a
radius of 2,000 miles have readily ben
picked up In the Alps. This is probably due
to the fact that there are few Intervening
objects between these elevations and the
sending stations which would be apt to
Interfere with the Hertzian waves. It has
always been difficult to send messages
across the AlpB, or even from one part of
Switzerland to another over the high alti
tudes, for the reason that the mountains
absorb much of the energy.
