U J Groat, In Pittsburg Dispatch.
Were nil the itoJuct! now poifected
which tliu bintti of limn lias conceived
duilt.g tlie past 12 months, tlio uiipavcd
air vould be out hlglnwos; iiliusiilioi
tscenee would Illumine our homes with
a mellow glow llkc duj light; all our
heavy vvotjs would bo done by wind,
tide find cumin ussed alt , wo would talk
b wlie wfili friends In tliu Antipodes
and see them face to face; would sohe
tho most lnlilcate pioblems instunrlj
b the applkatlon of electilclty to oui
1 lalns, and would photogiaph not onl
colois, but bus lellefs, voices, ill cams
and emotions Such ailments as pneu
monia, epilepsy, lockjaw, blinko bite
and insanity would bo us easily cuicd
as tho most ordinary cold, and the
body Itself would be made pi oof against
disease by the -injection of mlciobe hlll
cis into this si stem. To bail to the
North Pole by balloon would be an
oidinaiy Situiduy evening pleasuie
trip, and to communicate with the in
habitants of distant planets would bo
an eoiday occuirence.
No doubt, some Of these projects ate
Islonaij, but most of them aie in tliu
lunge ot piobablllty, for impel feet ap
pliances ulieady exist to uchlee such
l exults They will not llnd their way
into oidlnuiy use, of couise, until they
are so fat lmptoed hat it will be tcon

TIIH CHIEF ACHIEVEMENT.
The Kteatost achievement of the jear
was at its, thteshold It was eatly in
Januaij when 1'iofessor Roentgen, of
AVuizbuig unlveisltv, astonished tho
world b .showing tliat such substances
as wood, leather, aluminum nnd human
llesh ate not opaque, but as tianspar
ent as glass, and that there is anothei
and more powerful medium of Islon
than oidinaiy light a msteiious me
dium which is itself Invisible This
discovery was the mote suipiising bo-
cause it was never hinted or guessed
at before, but was entiiely new. It
was found that few things wete abso
lutely opunue when Roentgen or "X"
lajs weio tinned upon them, and that
common glass Is hauler for these
beams to penetiate than thick boatds
No booner was tills dlscooiy an
nounced than the whole civilised wot Id
bicamo interested in it, our own coun
tt most of all. Theie was scatcely an
inventor or a college laboratoiy that
did not begin expetlmentlng, and al
most daily fiesh capabilities of the new
jnjs levcalcd themselves At llrst only
shadow giaphs wore taken by camel a
and Ciookes tubes. Later both those
instruments wcie dispensed with, and
bj means of the ias, the naked ee
pierced wood and tissue, even pone

gazed upon the Inner structuie of sjlel
EXPERIMENTS WITH X-RAYS

and Tesla have latgely added to our
.stodi of knowledge in the bame dltec
ticm 13ut though science has found out
much that the Roentgen tay can do, It
is still ignoiant of what It is. Some
suimlse it Is a fotm of radiant heat;

Oregon, with a paddle-wheel machine
modeled after a salmon. Dr. Wolfert,
of Hetlln, und Mr. Bustnrd, of Eng

Besides Professor Langley's, the only
lenlly successful ex-pet Iments In air
navigation tint Ins tho jenr were made
on the old-fashioned kite ptlnclple by
Chailes II Lninson, of Pot Hand, Me.,
and William A Eddy, of liuionne, N.
J., who have consttucted kites sttong
enougli to lift men Into the air. With
these the government weather bureau
Is now exploilng the cloud legions In
staich of data for making more pei
fect weather fotecusts
Dlscoveiles in photography duilng
1&U6 have been sulllolent to stagger one
who has not thought of the collective
tesult. The Roentgen dlscoveiy may
be consider etl under this bend. Ptofes
sor dates has photographed In a datk
loom with invisible ias of light. The
photochionograph made duilng the
yeal for the use of the at my, plctuies

ruither ndvances in coloi photography
have been made, though the dllllculty
of pi luting orf the colois from the
negatives lias not been temoved. Dr.
Pucker, of 'England, has caught the

when awakes, recognises as tho Indi

btattling Is the asset Hon of M. Nnr-kletrlco-Jodko,
of Russia, that ho has
photogiaphcd ttue love; or tathor that
he has caught tho electtlc disoluuges
exchanged when the lovers clasp hands
which dischatges uro not found in the
bund clnsp of mete friends.
TO TAKE THE PLACE OF STEAM.
Of more practical benefit to mankind
will be the invention of new motois to
take the place of steam. One substan
tial advance has been the harnessing
of Nlagaia Falls, after years of toll on
tunnels and masonry. It was duilng
the New Yotk Electilcal exhibition
that Chauncey Dopew, with a cut tent
ft out the fails, ilabhed a message
mound the woild In four minutes The
same power is now tinning the wheels
of fuctotles of JJuffalo.
Two new 1 -invented motors have
been in opeiation on the sticot car sys
tems of New York for some time
compiessed air, and a combination of
stoingo nnd thlid-iall systems.
A new stylo of electtlc locomotive has
been ptoduced Jointlj by the Baldwin
Locomotive w oiks, of Philadelphia, and
the Wcstinghouse Eleittleal wotks, or
Dr. Jacques, of Boston, has dlscov
et ed a method of extt acting electilcal
onetgy ditect from coal, without the
aid of a steam engine. Pett oleum mo
tots fot blcjeles und hotseless mall
wagons have been products of the jeat.
Anticipating tlie time when fuel will be
bcatce and expensive, Einest Gelaich
lias been at woik on a wave motor on
the coast of California, to utilize the
vast powet of the tides
Nowadajs nearly all piofessional ln
ventois ate electtlclans, for tlie possi
bilities of tho mjbteiious fotco beeni
to be gi eater than even jet di earned
bj' science Edlbon has ptoduced a w w
electtlc light, which he calls a ilitoi
cscOnt lamp, that glv es an intetibe w hlte
light. The most staitllng innovation
in tills lino, though, is that of D. Muc
railane Mobie, who dispenses with
wlies altogether and pipes Ills elertilc
itjF, like gas Thtough glass tubes ar
tanged mound a loom he dlsttlbutes
evenly a soft, phosphoiescent glow, the
best countetfelt of dajllght jet de
vlsed. PEDDLING ELECTRICITY.
Even now, electiicltj- for domestic use
Is peddled from house to house in
New Yoik city, like milk In cans Edl-
'bon lias imptoved the telautogtaph, In-
entert the ptevlous jear, in a still
better device fot transmitting plctuies
bj wlie, callins ills Invention the au
togiaphlc telegia'jh. Ptofessor Row -land,
of Johns Hopkins unlvetsltj-, has
devised the multiplex pilntlng tele
giaph, capable ot sending ten sepaiute
messages at once over a slnjrle wiie.
M. Klldlschewskj' has been expetiment
Ing vith long-distance telephoning un
der watet. He has aheady talked
tlitough beveral bundled mileas of wiie
uudi tlie Don tlver, and now asplns
to make his voice heatd bj' cable ucioss
tho Atlantic Alexundet Giaham Bell
hat Invented a tudlophone, bj' which lie
ttansmlts a bttnbeam over tho telephone
foi long distances.
James P Pembciton, a Tennesseean,
has tlie most wondeiful ptoject of nil
for using the wire His Idea Is to opet
ate linotype machines fiom cential
news agencies, putting the dispatches
dlic-ctlv Into tv pe, wlies being attached
to the kej s of machines all ov er the
count! ' and woiked fiom the cential
agency bj a single oprratoi.
Among other 1M)G Inventions mado
possible by electilclty ate tliu eophone,
for detecting the exact dliectlon of
bounds at sea du;lng a log, Edison's
vltascope, foi tepioducliig plujs; Lu
mieie's clneiuatogiaphe, which, like
the klnetobcope, aheaely out of date,
ptoduces ilgutes In action, but in addi
tion piojects them In magnified foim
so that whole audiences may bee them;
First in Styles,
First in Quality.
Lowest in Prices.
A Smliig ot; from 25 to 50 Cents
on tliu Dollar.
Cor. Lackawanna and Wyoming Ayes
Dr. Frank Close's telectroscopc, en
abling tnlkeis to peo each other face to
fnee, though sepitated by hundteds
of miles; and tho Italian phonendo
scopo, to detect tho presence of dis
ease by sound. This last Is of such ex
ceeding delicacy that it makes a wink
as audible as a cannon shot.
INVENTIONS FOR SLAUGHTER.
Those piping times of peace are pro
line In Inventions for wholesale slaugh
ter In time of war. During the' j car,
In tho struggle for supiemucy between
big guns and minor pinto, the tide of
vlctotj' has once moio turned toward
the guns, through Increased power and
Improved projectiles. Mot cover, two
tjpes of submutlne totpedo boats,
which are now being peifected, the
Gathmunn and tho Holland, tin eaten
to make the most powetful battleship
as defenseless us a tub.
It would lengthen tho attlcle too
much to even mention all of the Inven
tions of the J our, but It wouldn't do
to slight a few of tho most Impoitant,
such as the Hawkins method of mak
ing steel, a substitute for the Besse
mer piocess, the Invention of a saw
lnanulnctuier ol Suglnnw, Mich. A bl
cjcle pabscnget cat, which inny be pro
pelled by Its own occupants, or else
attached to h, liain, and a bubmailue
blejclo foi the use of deep sea dlveis,
me new vailatlons for .the benellt of
wheelmen. Then tlioie is th attempt
of Mr, Emmens, of Emmenslte explo
sive fame, to lev he alchemj1, claiming
his ability to tiansinuto silver Into
'J ho pi ogress of th" healing nit has
kept pace with the mnrcli of invention.
The biggest sttlde In advance, if It
succeeds, Is tho supposed dlscoveiy bj
Dr. Edson, of New Yotk, who thinks
lie has found a method of killing In the
blood nil disease germs. This lie seeks
to accomplish by hypodeimlo injection
of asepsin, relieving tlie stomach of
tho task of assimilating drugs. The
immensity of such uu innovation w 111 bo
leallzed if It can be ptoved that, exclud
ing violence and accident from the cal
culation, the new remedy would wind
off any but a putely natural death, at
the end of man's allotted time on eaith.
That Is, no inttuslve diseases, like pneu
monia or fever, which cut off Its victim
in tho prime of life, could withstand
tho attack of the getm klllei.
PRINCIPLES OF INOCULATION EX
TENDED. Duilng the jear tlie pilnclple of In
oculation, which had already pioved
eflectlve against smallpox, hj'dtophobia
now awaiting a more propitious bea
and diphtheila, lias been extended to
the cute of lockjaw, snake-bite and in
sanity. Pneumonia is treated by Dr.
Mot an, of Elj ria, O , who draws off the
poNonous matter by ptoduclng m Un
cial abscesses whcie thej' can easily bo
temoved by the knife.
The first epileptic sanitarium in tho
woild has been established at Mt. Mol
lis, N. Y under the name, the "Ctaig
The sphj-gniogtaph. an instrument to
measure heait beats, is an 1S9C inven
tion Massage by water power, which
has been Intioduccd Into the New Yoik
Otthopedlc hospital, is also an achieve
ment of the yeat.
The eftect of vaiious foods upon the
human si stem lias been the subject of
expeilment In the Wesleyan unlveisity
of Connecticut. In a specially ptepared
alt-ti,lit loom, pmtltioned off by glass,
and Into which air is pumped, several
students have voluntmllj' caged them
selves, one at a time, subsisting upon
diets scientifically prepated for them.
Attempts have been mado duilng the
jeai to exploie the shadow j' boidei
land which lies between body and spit It.
The unheal d of thlnss which photo
graphj" has essayed in this line I have
alieadj- mentioned; but there mo two
mechanical inventions which ttench
closely upon psjchologj. The pendu-
lent chtonobiope now in use in tlie Uni-veisltj-
of Now Yoik Is designed to
meaaute the btaln of a living man, to
detetmine ills mental capnclty. Julius
Einmer, Inventor of tlie long-distance
telephone, has contrived what ho calls
a ' thought machine." You can think
in the presence of a dellcatelj" con
sttucted cjllndet, and the appaiatus
bj' means of chemical and electilcal
fot cos, will bottle your Ideas, as it wete,
just as Edison's phonograph stores
awaj' one's voice and words.
MAKING A DUNCE QUICKWITTED.
In the city of Washington there are
two laboiatotles where scientists are
devoting their lives to experimenting
upon the shadow land I have mentioned
Piotessor Elmer Gates Is the leading
splilt of one He Is studjlng the phyl
c.il side of mental action, and his aim
is to build up the brain, just as by caie
ful dieting the body of an Invalid may
be built up. One ftult of his rescauhes
Is tlie electrostat, which, bj1 dltectlng a
stteam of electilclty upon the bialn,
will enable the owner of the oignn to
concentrate ills mental po,ets upon a
problem as lie could not do without
attlficial aid By using the electiostat
the stupidest dunce maj become quick
witted so claims Pi of l-nsui Gates.
The othei Institution Is a patt of
Undo Satti s owit buieau of education
and has founded the wiw science of

EXPLORATIONS IN VENEZUELA.
Ptofessor Mail: IIenij of London,
has explored the Interior of the Otln

The stie.imeis which Issue fiom It have
a close connection with sun spots, and
the vaiious changes of both, It Is be
lieved, have gieat InlliKiice over our
tenestrlal climate. It Is hoped that
tho study of tliebe solar agitations will
enable future meteiologlsts to exactly
fotecast the weather In advance.
Owing to a clouded sky the various
expeditions which sailed to notthetn
latitudes to obseive the eclipse of Aug,
9 wete almost complete failures.
On Feb. 10 a lemarkable aerolite sped
acioss Spain, being visible In thtee
quarters of the peninsula. When it
exploded, not far fiom Madrid, everj
building In the city was shaken and
light stiuctuies weto leveled. The dust
which was showoted ftom the mys
teilous visitor covered tho country,
even setting lire to two houses In the
town of Logionl. The entlte visible
flight of the meteor consumed not less
than half a minute.
RETURN OF PERRINE'S COMET.
Pcirlne's come levislted tho visible
heavens In Match. For a time It
seemed to bo headed ditectlj- for out
woild, but it vanished before tho naked
eje could discern it
The most disquieting dlscoveiy made
In astionomy of late jeais is that the
motion of the eaith mound its axis is
not uniform; that It wobbles like a top
which has neailj spent its force. This
conclusion was fotced upon scientists
by tho otherwise unaccountable vaila
tlons of latitudes, and they ate now
busj- in sixteen obseivatoiies studjlng
the diiectlon of distant stars to llnd
out all they can about tho ciankj be
havior of this planet.
Tlie completion of the Yetkes tele

invented an lmpiovcd lens which will
inctoase bj" 100 per cent, the power of
any size of telescope. Piofessor Elmer
Gates, of Washington, has invented a
lens of oxjgen, said to be far better
than glass, and having the additional
advantnge that there is no limit to the
sUe Into which It can be made.
Contemplating all those new things,
