Experiments to Perfect New Form
of Communication are Re-
lieved Near Success.
New York, Aug. i.-Aii spocH-
making advance in tho science of
communication is promised, it was
larned yesterday, by experiments
new beiiitf conducted by the
American Telegraph and Tele-
phone Company look.ng toward
the development of a cable for
transoceanic telephone service
which will increase facilities,
provided a circuit of maximum
reliability anil insure absolute
privacy in conversation. All
telephonic conversation across the
occan ia now conducted by radio.
The perfecting of the new cable
will make possible such conversa-
tion by wires laid on the bottom
of the ocean.
~ The perfecting of the long-dis-
tan.ee oubmarine telephone cable,
which will constitute a modifica-
tion of the Permalloy telegraph
cable introduced with great suc-
cess by American cable com-
panies several years ago, is
pected within a short time,
lbs laying of a cable between the
United States and a point in
England or Ireland would give
American comaanies a great ad-
vantage in the struggle now in
progress against British inter-
ests for world supremacy in tho
I'able, wireless and telegraph
fields. The control of world'
telephony is one of the most im-
portant features in t'his contest.
While declining to state defi-
nitely when the new telephone
cable is likely to be ready for
operation, A. W. Page: vice pre-
sident of the American Telephone
and Telegraph Company, declares
that the experiments have pro-
cneded far enough to justify the
hope that the plans will be car-
ried to realization in the near

vleplete the soil and extract all of

Then he dies and leaves it all and

apet'zing cold drinks
ARE EASILY MADE AT HOME
Thoughtful Hosiers Will be Pre-
Pared at all Times to Serve
These Simpler Refresh-
ments to Unexpected
There is nothing that more
marks the thoughtful summer
.'lof.tess than her serving of the
cold summer drinks that are in
demand tfrom home kitchen to
urug store counter.
As a nation, we must have our
cold drinks, all day and every
day throughout; the summer. Bot-
tled varieties are always to be
had, some healthy or nourishing,
aome nothing more than colored
and sweetened water. But the
home-made ores, if the maker has
imagination and originality^ aid
the best of all.
One who has a flare for experi
mentation will combine flavors
for variety, use v^or for charm,
■ nd use lei't-o/'-r fruit and v:te-
able juices for c.ononn and
milk for no irishn 'nt.
A cooling fruit drink will ^tart
the day off with a zest. A noui-
lg milk shake will quench
the middle morning's or after-
noon's hunger and fatigue. Chill-
ed fruit or milk drinks will make
Fnuit flavors may be served
singly or as many as half a doz-
en combined, to produce flavors
new to the jadded taste. Most
of them require the addition of
a little lemon or a lime to bring
| out the flavor more fully and give
body to the drink.
I There are infinite ways to make
the serving of drinks attractive.
While the colored ice cubes are
only for those who have a mech-
anized refrigerator, there are
other ways of making the tray of
iced drinks charming. Thin
halves of lemon may be slipped
over the edge of the iced tea x'lass.
Paper thin slices of oranges and
maraschino cherries look attrac-
tive floating in glasses of fruit
A spray of mint in a glass adds
both color and flavor to the drink.
Whipped cream or ice cream may
oo used as a garnish. For bril-
liant coloring a pinch current
jelly may be dissolved in hot

ings and late afternoons offer
endless varieties of tart or sweet
drinks to cool and refresh the
members of tha household.
The hostess who specializes in
refreshing drinks doer- not, how-
ever, need any Jrpecial equip-
ment. A good-sized fruit squeez-
er, operating by 'hand or electri-
city if one can afford it, and a

shelf a few jars of fruit juices
and fruit syrups—pineaple,
Loganberry, raspberry, grape,
lime and grapefruit flavors, and
ceveral bottles •of carbonated
beverages such as ginger ale.
Possibly she will have a jug of
cider and a supply of malted
milk, chocolate or plain, in pow-
dered and easily dissolved form.
Other flavors and syrups will sug-
It is also a good idea to keep
cn hand a sugar syrup for sweet-
ening drinks, because ,it blends
more easily with cold liquids than
the straight sugar. It is made
easily by boiiing together one
cup of sugar and one cup of water
for five minutes. Put this in a
glass jar and keep in the refrige-
rator ready for use.
If you have room in your re-
frigerator, various drinks may be
made up and kept chilled until
ready for use. But if a large
amount of ice must be added to
the drinks to cool them properly
lemember to allow for the con-
sequent dilution of the strength
and flavor of your drink.
Ice cubes from a mechanized
refrigerator are handier, of
course, and may be made differ-
ent by coloring the water slightly
with a little vegetable coloring
before freezing, or by freezing
tiny sprigs of mint, cress, a
cherry, etc, in the cubes. Chip

glasses conveniently, but do not

This may be made as simply as

makes iced tea a super-delicacy

half an hour at least. Lay a tea
bali or two on top of the mint
