The Federal Wireless Telephone and Telegraph Company was one of the subsidiary companies of the American Wireless Telephone and Telegraph Company, and primarily dealt with a section of the United States running from New Jersey through Ohio. The company affairs were lead by the notorious stock promoter L. E. Pike, and most persons unfortunate enough to have bought the company's stock soon found it all but worthless.

The Whole World is Talking About Wireless Telegraphy.

      The inventor of this system, in an interview printed in the
"New York Journal" August 20th, states that he has no more
doubt that he will in a short time be sending Wireless Messages
across the Atlantic Ocean than he has that cars run up Broad-
way.
A Most Marvelous Invention.

      The "Philadelphia North American," September 20th states
that the first wireless message ever received in Philadelphia was
sent to that paper, penetrating brick walls, buildings, river
craft and other obstacles. Nothing could stop it.

      Have you read in the New York papers how ocean steamers
 |  150 miles apart, communicated with each other through a dense
 |  fog. Do you suppose there will be a single steamer in 12 months'
 |  time without Wireless Telegraphy? Do you realize how many
 |  lives will be saved through this wonderful invention? It not
 |  only prevents accidents, but when a steamer is in distress she
 |  will be able to call for assistance.
 |        Do you realize that the Federal Company absolutely con-
 |  trols the great Gateway of Commerce on this side of the Atlan-
 |  tic and that the revenues from this source alone should be enor-
 |  mous?

Don't Delay.          The Opportunity is Yours.              Will You Grasp It?
