"The age of electricity is only jost
dawning," .id Assistant Commission
er of Patents Greely, "and one ad
vance in this direction which ?we are
about to witness is the . conversion of
the steam, railroads of this country
into electric railroads-a change that
would have been accomplished already
to a large extent but for the immense
amount of money invested in locomo
tive and the first enormous expense of
installing an electric plant. Cars
have already been run by electricity
at a rate exceeding 60 miles an hour,
and electric locomotives have proved
themselves superior to those depend?
; ing on steam power. One advantage
of the electric locomotive engine is
that it emits no smoke or cinders, and
the water power of any river within a
few miles of the line may be utilized
instead of fuel to run it.
"The first electric road for city or
suburban traffic was put in operation
a dozen years ago.. At present there
are in the United States more than
15,000 miles of such roads, represent
ing a total investment of $900,000,000
and employing about 175,000 persons.
In 1880 there were caiy three electric
light and power establishments in this
country, to-day there are more than
10,000 such establishments, employing
50,000 men and $500,000,000 of capi
tal. The telephone in 1880 was just
- beginning to be commercially known;
now there'axe over 1,000 exchanges,
using 600,000 miles of wire and em
ploying 15,000 individuals and $85,
000,000 of capital.
"These few figures give a notion of
the wonderful progress^ made hythe
electrical art during the last few years
of the nineteenth century. It has ex
tended itself over the industrial field
to such an extent as largely to modify
social and economic conditions, inci
dentally giving gainful occupation to
a vast nnmber of persons. To-day
the support; of considerably over 1,- ?
?00,000 people in this country is de
rived from enterprises which depend
upon electricity, and to this number
there 'will be an enormous addition 1
when electricity is substituted for
. steam as motive power on thc rail
"Electricity is invading all the arts
and industries. The manufacturer
.finds it more econbmic to attach a
motor to each of his machines, dis
tributing power through his .factory
by means of wires. Coal is now cut
in the mines by electric power, carried
to the pit's mouth by the sume agency,
and loaded upon electric cars for tran s
sportation. The demand for copper
for.electrical uses is mainly account
able for the fact that the output of
this, metal in the United States has
been multiplied by six since 1880. To
make a telephone circuit from Boston
to Chicago requires over 1,000,000
pounds of copper. .
"Many marvelous things are being
accomplished with metals by the aid
of electricity, among which may be
mentioned the welding together of
such substances as steel, copper,
nickel, etc.-a task that was deemed
impossible until recently. With the
employment of the electric arc a new
chemistry of high temperature is in
prospect, promising fresh discoveries
of high industrial value. By this
means a heat of 7,200 degrees Fahren
heit is attained, which is sufficient to
reduce all known substances. Hence
the electric furnace, in which gold,
iron, platinum, and copper are volati
lized, and by the holp of which actual
diamonds have been manufactured
"Already we have learned how to
send seventy-two messages simulta
neously over a single wire. We can
transmit the handwriting of an indi
vidual by telegraph, and in the same
way we can actually reproduce half
tone pictures at long distances. Be
fore long we shall be able tc reproduce
full typewritten pages by telegraph,
just as we now send words on a paper
ribbon, and wireless telegraphy seems
to be in sight. When the proposed
Pacific cable is laid, it will be practi
cable to send a message around the
world in three seconds, and it iz prom
ised that a method will bc found for
telegraphing between ships many miles
apart at sea. Even now it no longer
seems so very wonderful that by the
touoh of a button at the naval obser
vatory in Washington each day at
noon 100,000 clocks all over the United
State's should be set to the true time,
while time balls are dropped at the
same instant at all seaports ca the
Atlantic and Pacific coasts, for the
benefit of marines.
"The great problem likely to be
solved in the twentieth century is the
transformation of heat into electricity
direct. When this is accomplished,
Biddy in the morning will start a fire
the heat of which will fill a series of
storage batterie* that will do most of
the work of the household during the
day, illuminating the dwelling, pro
pelling the machine fans, running the
sewing machine, operating the dumb

waiter, and so forth. This, however,
is only a faint suggestion of the ad
vantages tobe gained by the discovery
I speak of. Electricity will then be
come an exceedingly cheap source of
energy, and the sun's rays may even
be employed to manufacture the fluid.
! If, as does not seem unlikely, a twen
tieth century inventor finds a practi
cal way of harnessing the tides, the
j latter will produce at very slight ex
pense all the electricity required to
run all the machinery and to heat and
illuminate all the houses in the United
"The houses of many rich men to
day are run to a great extent by elec
tricity, which lights them, ventilates
them, and even operates the family
elevator. This kind of elevator is
itself a very new invention; it has no
attendant, but is so controlled by the
invisible force stored in great jars of
lead and acidulated water in the bat
tery room that is as safe and docile as
any well trained servant. Anybody
who wants to make use of it presses a
button, and the car comes responsive
ly to the floor desired. Stepping
aboard, the passenger touches one of
a series of buttons inside, and the car
transports him to the floor he wishes
to go to. If the promises of electri
cal experts are to be accepted, our
dwellings before long will be lighted
by electricity without wires.
"An extremely valuable product of
the electrical furnace, by the way, is
carborundum-now being made in a
large way at Niagara-which is the
hardest of all substances save the dia
mond, and therefore serves extremely
well as an abrasive. By electrolysis
aluminium is separated from its ore,
and thus has been brought to a point
of exceeding cheapness, while by the
same means ordinary brine is sepa
rated into two valuable products
chlorine for bleaching and sodium for
"Electricity is now recognized as a
most useful agent in medicine, being
employed in a great variety of ways.
In some complaints it has a remark-'
abie- power of stimulating function,
and it has been found that certain
drags put on a moistened electrode
can be carried into the body with the
current, so as to benefit directly a dis
eased part. Various kinds of morbid
growths are removed instantaneously
and painlessly by electro-cautery, and
the only successful method for getting
rid of superfluous hair is that of the
electric needle, which is gently intro
duced into the hair follicle and kills
the root. Nowadays operative instru
ments for the nose, mouth and throat,
whether drills, saws or what not, are
controlled by electricity, while tiny
incandescent lamps, swallowed by the
patient or otherwise manipulated, are
utilized to illuminate thc cavities of
body and head so as to reveal condi
tions to the physician.
"Street cars are not only run by
electricity, but are illuminated and
heated by the same agency. The
beaters used for this purpose require
no attention, regulate the temperature
exactly as it may be desired, and,
when used on railway trains, do not
endaoger the safety of passengers.
One of the latest improvements is to
provide each berth in a sleeping car
with an incandescent light, so that
one may read if slumber comes not.
Similarly, incandescent lights are now
provided for carriages, and they are
even coming into use for cabs. The
emperor of Germany has his closed
carriages lighted in this way, and in
addition, the harnesses of his horses
are covered with small glowlights of
different colors, so as to produce a very
"The twentieth century will see
electricity introduced in the kitchen
in place of coal and wood. In order
that this may bc accomplished it is
only necessary that the fluid should
be made a little cheaper, inasmuch as
it serves much better for all culinary
purposes. The electric oven bakes
bread ideally, and meats prepared in
it -onot require basting or watching,
while broiling or frying may be done
in superior style on thc electric range.
The electric chafing dish is attachable
at a moment's notice tz an ordinary
lightwire, the current is turned on,
and i/umediately the oysters begin to
stew or the eggs to frizzle. In the
electric kitchen of the near future
there will be no coal, no ashes, and no
smoke; there will be no fuel and not
even a battery, inasmuch as the re
quisite current will be furnished from
the outside, as gas is now. The sad
irons used on Tuesdays for the family
linen will be heated by electricity,
and will be kept thus at a constant
temperature, so that they will never
scorch things and will not require
changing or re-heating. Already we
have electric curling-tongs, which, be
ing hitched to a light wire, are war
ranted not to singe the hair.
"Electric boats are now plying on
the canals of Venice, and launches
similarly propelled are being made for
American warships, the power being
derived from storage batteries beneath
the boats. The trolley meanwhile
threatens to supplant the industrious
but uncertain mule for the propulsion
of canal boats. In the cities canned
electricity, as it might be termed, is
now delivered to customers, the emp
tied batteries being taken away every
day and replaced with full ones. At
the same time agricultural machines
mn by electricity are being introduced
to the farmers, and there is even a
device for the wholesale electrocution
of weeds. Among recent inventions
are an electric incubator, and experts
are making experiments in the forcing
of thc growth of plants by electric
lights and by current put through
Whatever may bc said against Sen
ator Tillman, we cannot help admiring
his political courage and his blunt
frankness in dealing with political is
sues. Tillman calls a pitchfork a
pitchfork and spares not. He is quo
ted as having Faid in a recent speech
that thc dispensary was not intended
to be moral, but .simply to give the
people plenty of good liquor and to
give the profits of the liquor business
to the State instead of the bar keep
This is tie literal truth. The State
of South Carolina is engaged in the
liquor business for the profit that
there is in it. Or perhaps we would
be nearer to the truth if we should
say that the Tillman party inaugurated
the dispensary system for the good
that they could get out of it. -Now
that Tillman has told the truth, let us
hear no more about the dispensary
system as a movement in the interest
of temperance. It is a movement in
the interest of politics, and while it
has been of profit to politicians and
possibly of profit to the State govern
ment, it has been a disgrace to the
people of South aCarolina and a source
of no end of strife and scandal.

was ordered written, and this was one
of the compositions :
"The boy is not an animal, yet he
can be heard to a considerable dis
tance. When a boy hollers he opens
his mouth like a frog, but girls hold
their tongue 'tili they are spoken to,
and they answer respectable, and tell
just how it was. A boy thinks he is
clever because he can wade where it is
deep, but God made the dry land for
every living thing, and rested on the
seventh day. When the boy grows up
he's called a husband and stays out
nights, but the grew up girl is a wid
ow and keeps house."

So extraordinary is this combat that
it would bc held a romance had it not
been witnessed by a whole army. The
hero was Jean Louis, one of the great
est masters of swordsmanship who ev
er lived, and the combat happened in
Madrid in 1813. He was the master at
arms oC the Thirty-second regiment of
French infantry-the First regiment,
composed entirely of Italians, forming
part ol' the same brigade. Regimental
esprit de corps and rivalries of nation
ality caused constant quarrels, when
swords were often whipped out or bul
After a small battle had occurred in
the streets of Madrid, in which over
200 French and Italian soldiers had
taken part, the officers of thc two regi
ments, in a council of war assembled,
decided to give such breaches of order
a great blow, and to re-establish disci
pline they agreed that tho masters at
arms of the two regiments should take
up the quarrel and fight it out.
The details of the battle were simple
and quickly arranged. The duel was
to take place in the open and in the
presence of the whole army. The crack
i swordsmen of the two regiments were
selected, and each group arranged the
I order in which their men were to face
' their opponents. The next day was thc
time set for the bloody ordeal.
: Shortly after daybreak, as the sim
rose, the army assembles. Then a mo
ment of expectancy.
The drum Is heard. Two men naked
to the waist step into the ring. Thc
first is tall and strong. His black eyes
rove disdainfully upon the gaping
crowd. He is Giacomo Ferrari, the
I celebrated Italian. The second, tall,
also handsome and with muscles like
steel, stands modestly awaiting the
word of command. His name is Jean
Louis. Tho witnesses assume their
places on either side of their princi
pals. A deathlike silence ensues.
"On guard!"' The two masters cross
swords. Giacomo Ferrari lunges re
peatedly at Jenn Louis, but in vain.
His every thrust is met by a parry.
He makes up his mind to bide his
! chance and caresses and teases his op
Jean Louis, calm and watchful, louds
himself to the play, when, quicker than
lightning, the Italian jumps aside with
, a loud yell and makes a terrible lunge
at Jean Louis-a Florentine trick, often
successful. Rut, with extraordinary
rapidity, Jean Louis has parried, and
risposts quickly in the shoulder.
"It is nothing," cried Giacomo, "a
mere scratch/' and they again fall on
guard. Almost directly lie is hit in thc
breast. This time tho sword of Jean
Louis, who is now attacking, pene
trates deeply, Giacomo's face becomes
livid, his sword drops from his hand
and he falls heavily on the turf. He is
Jean Louis is already in position. He
wipes his reeking blade; then, with thc
point of his sword in the ground, he
calmly awaits the next mau. Ile has

I A sinister click of swords is heard, a
lunge, a parry, a rispost, and then a
cry, a sigh, and all is over. A second
body Is before Jean Louis. A third ad
; versary advances. They wanted Jean
Louis to rest.
"I am not tired," he answers, with a
smile. The signal is given. The Italian
is as tall as the one who lies there a
corpse, covered by a military cloak.
He has closely watched Jean Louis'
play, and thinks he has guessed the se
cret of his victories. Ho'multiplies his
feints and tricks, and then, all at once,
bounding like a tiger on his prey, he
j gives his opponent a terrible thrust in
the lower line. Rut Jean Louis' sword
has parried, and is now deep within his
opponent's breast. ?
"What need to relate any more. Ten
new adversaries followed him, and the
ten fell before Jean Louis, amid the
exeited yells and roars of au army.
At the request of the Thirty-second
regiment's colonel, who thought thc
lesson sufficient, Jean Louis, after
much pressing, consented to stop the
