"PHANTOM" VOICES WIRES NO LONGER ESSENTIAL FOR TELEPHONES REMARKABLE PROGRESS The days are gone when the only way in which voices from the domes- tic telephone could be transmitted was through a wire, To-day there are 4,000 miles of "phantom circuits" in South Australia in which voices trave) through the air between twin wires. In vie whote of Australia there are 26,000 miles of these phantom circuits, besides ordinary telephone and tele graph channels. Pnantom circuits are being employed because they save wire, and conse quently money. And they are just as effective as the ordinary method.

The Deputy Postmaster-General (Mr. 12. p. Ramsay) explained yesterday that in South Aus tralia there were 8,000 miles of teie graph carrier channel, and 1,730 mile...

Quinn) and the manager (Mr. Rodney lowler).

Mr. Quinn described one variety of cherry that grew tremen dously for 12 to 15 years before it yielded a decent crop of fruit, and another that threw out suckers, which tended to overgrow the parent tree. "This orchard is not ideal cherry land, he said; "it is too shallow. The trouble with us here is that the trees are grow ing in an isolated spot. Starlings gather in thousands, and mop up the fruit so soon as it starts to color, leav ing only the stems and stones. We thus had to estimate whether the crop lias been good...
