cornet, cymbal and a whole orchestra
of Instruments, with the chanting of
carols, a long, gayly decked procession
marches through the principal streets-
children of all ages, each divisios
dressed in its speciai color (white, blue,
pink or yellow), and all bearing some
badge or emblem or grasping some
bright ribbon attached to shrine or
crucifix. The effect of grouping and
color is very artistic. Here and there
in the throng older, stronger hands
bear aloft precious relics, upon which
the spectators reverently gaze. Msny
novel features come into view as the
procession passes along, but the pret
tiest sight is the train of beautiful chil
dren in fastastic dress marching over
the flower strewn pavement, each
small person gravely absorbed in the
special part it performs. - Pittsburg

Lord Kelvin's Dreama " Reality.
"I hope to live to see the day when,
a dream I have had will come true,"

electrician, to the students of Columbia
university in New York the other day.

we shall have the transmission of elec

age of 40.000. When I first talked of
that fifteen years ago. I was laughed
at, but with the wonderful tranawla'
lion of power at Niagara Falls my
dream looks to be near fulfillment is
the close future."
Lord Kelvin's dream Is nearer ful
fillment In this country than has bees
demonstrated at Niagara. Long dis
tance transmission of electrical power
has reached a higher development on
the Pacific coast than in the east.
The Bay Counties company in Cali
fornia is now supplying current for
power purposes at 40.000 volts at a di,
tance. of 224 miles from the generator.
The Snoqualmie Falls Power company
Ia now transmitting current for power
purposes fifty miles at a voltage of 30,.
000 and expects within a year to be
supplying the territory from Portland
to Vancouver, over 300 miles, at 60,6000
volts. The latter plant is near Seattle
and now supplies current to Seattle and

been dreaming American electrical en

according to the French ideas of cli
