proper thing, and whisper

A now invention by Thomas A.
Edison was shown to a few por
boiib at tho West Orango labora
tory about two weeks ago. Tho
now machine is roally a grown-up
kinotoscopo, and is a Buccess.
Edison calls his latest invention
tho vitaBcopo, which, ho says,
means tho machine showing life,
and that i exactly what tho now
apparatus does. Tho viUiscopo is
un improvomonb on tho kinotos
copo, by which tho moving lifo
sizo figures o men, women and
animals are thrown upon a screen
by moans q bright lights und
The first picture hIiowii was n
colored panorama of n serpentino
dauco by Anabollo. Tho film roll
on which tho photographs wero
attached WAS nrrnnmul rvn- lmlf ..
dozen spools and pulleys, and tho
machino was sot in motion. Even
the inventor himsolf was surpris
ed at tho result. Annliolln .Innn,i
for flVO mhmfiVq. nnri flion n nn.
rania of tho English Derby was
thrown upon tho screen.
Tho feature of tho now machino
which astonished all who saw tho
views was tho almost ontiro ab
sence of vibration in tho pictures
as thoy appeared on tho screen,
and which had been tho hardest
ohstaclo to Biirmouut in perfecting
tho apparatus. Tho original
photographs aro about the sizo of
a special delivery postago stamp,
and to produco a lifo-sizo picture
thov aro maonifiod nhnnf. int
Edison expects to bo ablo soon
to improve tho phonograph bo
that it will bo ablo to talco records
double tho longth of thoso which
tho prosont cylinders will contain,
audtho vitascopo and phonograph
will then bo bo combined that it
will bo possible for an audionco
to watclr tho photographic ronro
duction of grand opera and hoar
tho singers and see tho acting
with as much 'distinctness of
sound and vision as if thoy wero
in an opera-house.
