Psi Upsilon Reunion.
.Pursuant to the call published in the GLO BE
of yesterday, an informal reunion of the mem
bers of the Psi Upsilon fraternity took place in
the parlors of the Metropolitan Hotel yester
day afternoon. Th gathering was not as large
as was expected, the great disaster in Minne
apolis having detained many gentleir of that
city who would have otherwise attended. Th
meeting was organized by calling Hon Ren
saeler R. Nilson, (Yale 1846), to the chair, and
appointing W Willis, Esq. (Dartmouth
1877), secretary. The condition of the society
was then informally discussed, and it was re
solved that an association of college alumni be
longing to the society should be perfected dur
ing the coming year.
On motion of Rev. E Neill, Judge Nelson
and Prof. Jabez Brooks were appointed a com
mittee to send a message to the general conven.
tion of the fraternity. The following is themes

Slaughter Houses in the City Limits.
To the Editor of the Globe:
As the health officer, Dr. Mattocks, is very
prudently calling the attention of the public
to the necessity of renovating and ventilating
cellars', and points with an unerring finger to
the fatal diseases that are superinduced by
neglecting these sanitary precautions, would it
not also be well for him to give his official and
professional views as to the expediency, on san
itary grounds, of permitting the further con
tinuance, within the city limits, of these too
numerous and unbearable nuisances, slaughter
houses? I ma ny parts of the city, complaint
after complaint has been made, and the au
thorities have been requested to abate them as
nuisances, and yet they continue to exist, to
the great annoyance of those who reside near,
or have occasion to continually pass by them.
If slaughter houses are to be permitted with
in the city limits, why should not an ordinance
be passed by the council, regulating their con
struction, with reference to the water supply
and sewerage, and not permit them, as now, in
every butcher's back yard, without any refer
ence to the facilities for cleanliness.
If butchers could not afford to build slaugh
ter houses in compliance with such an ordi
nance, then they would be compelled to go
outside of the city limits. There can be no
dou bt that Dr. Mattocks will be emphatically
supported in any measures he may adopt to
BBGTJLATE these unmitigated nuisances.

TffJB IVYBXTOB TELLS OV SOME OF
Letter Writing to he Superseded by Talking
^-Books Reproduced Aloud a Hundred
TimesRevolutionizing the Telegraph
and Every Thing Else.
Thomas A. Edison, the inventor of the won
derful phonograph, contributes a letter to the
North American Review, from which we extract
The probable application of these properties
of the phonograph and the various branches of
commercial and scientific industry presently
indicated will require the exercise of more or
less mechanical ingenuity. Conceding that the
apparatus is practically perfected so far as
the faithful reproduction of sound is concern
ed, ma ny of the following applications will be
made the moment the new form of apparatus,
which the writer is now about completing, is
finished. These, then, might be classed as ac
tualities but they so closely trench upon other
applications which will immediately follow
that it is impossible to separate them hence
they are all enumerated under the head of
probabilities, and each specially considered.
Among the more important may be mentioned:
Letter-writing and other fonrs of dictation
books, education, reader, music, family
record and such electrotype applications as
books, musical boxes, toys, clocks, advertising
and signalling apparatus, speeches, &c, &c.
Letter-writing.The apparatus now being
perfected in mechanical details will be the
standard phonograph, and may be used for all
purposes, except such as require special form
of matrix, such as toys, clocks, etc., for an in
definite repetition of the same thing. Th main
utility of the phonograph, however, being for
the purpose of letter writing and other forms
of dictation, the design is made with a view to
its utility for that purpose.
The general principles of construction are,
a flat plate or disk, with spiral grooves on the
iC3, operated by clock work underneath the
plate the grooves are cut veiy closely together,
so as to give a great total length to each inch of
surfacea close calculation gives as the capac
ity of each Bheet of foil, upon which the record
is had, in the neighborhood of 40,000 words.
The sheets being but ten inches square, the cost
is so trifling that but 100 words might be put
upon a single Bheet economically. Still, it is
problematical whether a less number of grooves
per inch might not be the bettei planit cei
tainly would for lettersbut it is desirable to
have but one class of machines throughout the
world and as very extended communications,
if put upon one sheet, could be transported
moie economically iii an upon two, it is impor
tant that each sheet be given as great capacity
as possible. Th writer has not yet decided
this point, but will experiment with a view of
ascertaining the best mean capacity.
The practical applicatiou of this form of
phonograph for communications is very simple.
A sheet of foil is placed in the phonograph, the
clockwork set in motion, and the matter dictat
ed into the mouthpiece without othei effort
than when dictating to a stenographer. I is
then removed, placed in a suitable form of
velope, and sent through the ordinary channels
to the correspondent for whom designed. He
placing it upon his phonograph, starts his
clockwork and listens to what his correspondent
has to say. Inasmuch as it gives the tone of
voice of his correspondent, it is identified. As
it may be filed away as other letters, and at
any subsequent time reproduced, it is a perfect
record. As two sheets of foil have been indent
ed with the same facility as a single sheet, the
"writer" rtay thus keep a duplicate of his com
munication. As the principal of a business
house, or his partners, now dictate the import
ant business communications to clerks to be
written out, they are required to do no more by
the phonographic method, and do thergby di
pense with the clerk, and maintain perfect
privacy in their communications.
The phonograph letters may be dictated at
home, or in the office of a friend, the presence
of a stenographer not being required. The dic
tation may be as rapid as the thoughts can be
formed, or the lips utter them. Th recipient
may listen to his letters being read at a rat of
from 150 to 200 words per minute, and at the
same time bu sy himself about other matters.
Interjections, explanations, emphasis, exclama
tions, etc., may be thrown into such letters, ad
I the early days of the phonograph, ere it
has become universally adopted, a correspond
ent in Hong Kong may possibly not be supplied
with an apparatus, thus necessitating a written
letter of the old-fashioned sort. I that case
the writer would use his phonograph simply as
a dictating machine, his clerk writing it out
from the pnonograph at leisure, causing as
ma ny words to be uttered at one time as his
memory was capable of retaining until he had
written them down. This clerk need not be a
stenographer, nor need he have been present
when the letter waR dictated, &c.
The advantages of such an innovation upon
the present slow, tedious, and costly methods
are too numerous, and too readily suggest them
selves, to warrant their enumeration, while
there are no disadvantages which will not dis
appear coincident with the general introduction
of the new method.
Dictation.All kinds and manner of dicta
tion which will permit of the application of
the mouth of the speaker to the mouthpiece of
the phonograph, may be as readily effected by
the phonograph as in the case of letters. I
the matter is for the printer, he would much
prefer, in setting it up in type, to use his ears
in lieu of his eyes. has other use for them.
It wpuld be even worth while to compel wit
nesses in court to speak directly into the pho
nograph, in order to thus obtain an unimpeach
able record of their testimony.
The increased delicacy of the phonograph,
which is in the near future, will enlarge this
field rapidly. I may then include all the say
ings of not only the witness, bat the judge and
the counsel. I will then, also, comprehend
the utterances of public speakers.
Books.Books may be read by the charitably
inclined professional reader, or by such leaders
especially employed for that purpose, and the
record of such book used in the asylums of
the blind, hospitals, the Bick chamber, or even
with great profi1
and amusement by the lady
or gentleman whose eyes and hands may be
otherwise employed or, again, because of the
greater enjoyment to be had from a book when
read by an elocutionist than when read by the
average reader. The ordinary record sheet, re
peating this book from fifty to a hundred times
as it will, would command a price that would
pay the original reader well for the slightly in
creased difficulty in reading it aloud in the
Educational Purposes.As an elocutionary
teacher, or as a primary teacher for children, it
will certainly be invaluable. it difficult
passages may be correctly rendered for the
pupil but once, after which he has only to ap
ply to his* phonograph for instructions. Th
child may learn to spell, commit to memory a
lesson set for it, &c.
Music.The phonograph will undoubtedly
be devoted to music. A song sung on the pho
nograph is reproduced with marvellous accuracy
and power. Thus a friend may in a morning
call sing us a song which shall delight an eve
ni ng company, &c. As a musical teacher, it
will be used to enable one to master a new air,
the child to form its first songs, or to ing him
Family RecordFor the purpose of preserv
ing the sayings, the voices, and the last words
of the dying member of the familyas of
great menthe phonograph will unquestion
ably outrank the photograph. I the field of
multiplication of original matrices, and the
indefinite repetition of one and the same thing,
the successful electrotyping of the original
record is an essential. As this is a problem easy
of solution, it properly ranks among the proba
bilities. I comprehends a vast field. Th
principal application of the phonograph in this
direction is in the production of
Phonographic BooksA book of 40,000 words
upon a single metal plate ten inches square
thus becomes a strong probability. The ad
vantages of such books over those printed are
too readily seen to need mention. Such books
would be listened to where now none are read.
They would preserve more than the mental
emanations of the brain of the author and as
a bequest for future generations they would be
unequaled. For the preservation of languages
they would be invaluable.
Musical Boxes,, Toys, &c.The only element
not absolutely assured in the result of experi
ments thus far madewhich stands in the way
of a perfect reproduction at will of Adelina
Patti's voice in all its purityis the single one
of quality,* and even that is not totally lacking,
and will doubtless be wholly attained. If, how
ever, it should not, the musical box, or cabinet,
of the present will be superseded by that
which will give the voice and the words of the

Advertising, etc.This class of phonograph
ic work is so akin to the foregoing that it is
only necessary to call attention to it
8peeoh and Other Utterances.It will hence
forth be possible to preserve to our future gen
erations the voices as well as the words of our
Washingtons, our Lincoln*, our Gladstones,
etc., and to have them give us their "greatest
effort" in every town and hamlet in the coun
upon our holidays.
Lastly, and in quite another direction, the
phonograph will perfect the telephone and
revolutionize present systems of telegraphy.
That useful invention is now restricted in its
field of operation by reason of the fact that it
is a means of communication which leaves no
record of its transactions, thus restricting its
use to simple conversational chit chat, and
suoh unimportant details of business as are
not considered of sufficient importance
to record. Were this different, and our tele
phone conversation automatically recorded, we
should find the reverse of the present status of
the telephone. I would be expressly resorted
to as a means of perfect record. I writing
our agreements we incorporate in the writing
the summing up of onr understandingusing
entirely new and different phraseology from
that which we used to express our understand
ing of the transaction in its discussion, and
not infrequently thus begetting perfectly in
nocent causes of misunderstanding. Now, if
the telephone, with the phonograph to record
its sayings, were used in the preliminary dis
cussion, we would not only have the full and
correct text, but every word of the whole mat
ter capable of throwing light upon the subject.
Thus it would seem clear that the
men would find it more advantageous to ac
tually separate a half mile or so in order to
discuss important business matters, than to
discuss th em verbally, and then make an awk
ward attempt to clothe their understanding in
a new language. Th logic which applies to
transactions between two individuals in the
same office, applies with the greater force to
two at a distance, who must discuss the matter
between them by the telegraph or mail. An
this latter case, in turn, is reinforced by the
demands an economy of time and money at
every mile of increase of distance between
"How can this application be made?" will
probably be asked by those unfamiliar with
either the telephone or phonograph.
Both these inventions cause a plate or disk to
vibrate, and thus produce sound waves i har
mony with those the voice of the speaker.
A very simple device may be made to a duty
for both the telephone and the phonograph,
thus enabling the speaker to simultaneously
transmit and record his mssage What system
of telegiaphy can approach that? A similar
combination at the distant end of the wire en
ables the correspondent, if he is present, to
hear it while it is being recorded. Thus we
have a mete passage of words for the action,
but a complete and durable record of those
words as the result of that action. Can econo
my or time or money go further than to anni
hilate time and space, and bottle up for poster
ity the mere utterance of man, without other
eltort on his part than to speak the words?
I order to make this adaptation, it is only
requisite that the phonograph shall be made
slightly more sensitive to record, and the tele
phone very slightly increased in the vibrating
torce of the receiver, and it is accomplished.
Indeed, the "Carbon Telephone," invented and
perfected by the writer, will already well nigh
effect the record on the phonograph and, as
he is constantly improving upon it, to cause a
more decided vibration the plate of the re
ceiver, this addition to the telephone may be
looked for coincident with the other praotical
applications of the phonograph, and with al
most equal certainty.
The telegraph company of the futureand
that no distant onewill be, simply, an or
ganization having a huge system of wires, cen
tral and sub-central stations, managed by
skilled attendants, whose sole duty it will be
to keep the wires in proper repair, and give, by
switch or shunt arrangement, proper attention
to subscriber No. 923 in Ne York, when he
signals his desire to have private communica
tion with subscribir No. 1,001 in Boston, for
three minutes. Th minor and totally incon
sequent details which seem to arise as obstacles
in the eyes of the groove-traveling telegraph
man, wedded to existing methods, will wholly
disappear before that remorseless Juggernaut,
"the needs of man for will not the neces
sities of man surmount trifles, in order to reap
the full benefit an invention which prac
tically brings him face to face with whom he
will, and, better still, doing the work of a con
scientious and infallible scribe?
