The Committee on tho Horticul
tural l'avilion site yesterday visit
ed the lot on Temple street which
ex-Mayor Beaudry his oflered to
doDate to the Society. This lot is
circular in form with a diameter of
300 feet, is surrounded by a street
sixty feet wide aud occupies
one of the most commanding looa
tions in tlie city. The only objec
tion urged agilust the locality is
that it is now somewhat remote
from the center of population; still
the distance from the Court House
is no greater than the lot which Mr.
ltivara proposed to sell to the Asso
ciation. Temple street has a street
car grade all the way from the
junction of Main and Spring to tlie
site proposed, and there is at pres
ent in existence a charter for a lino

Of phonography, turned off fresh
from this mysterious machine, for

proper machine to causo it to yield

upon it with admiration—an admi
ration wliich is by no means so an-
prooiative as it ought to be. Mr.
Urown tells us that this tin foil
contains friendly greetings and

and it is for us only a piece of tin

very closely in a pattern as Inuo-
cent, apparently, as that which
figures on a Lilly's gown, we sup
plement our own ignorance of the
phonograph hy the following from
the New York Times't Washing
Mr. Edison, tlie inventor of the
phonograph, gave exhibitions wllh
the instrument at the Capitol in
tlie presence oi a large number of
Senators and Representatives.
Messrs. Garfield, Cox, of New
York, aud others spolte in the pho
nograph, and tbeir voices and
speeches were reproduced with re
markable accuracy, the volume
and peculiarity of sound and em
phasis of each speaker being
plainly recognized. In an
interview published in the Afar
Mr. Edison describes a mar
velous discovery recently made.
He says: "Night before lust I
found out some additional points
about the carbon which I use iv my
carbon telephone, It may be useil
as a heat measurer. It will detect
one fifty*thousandth of a degree,
fahrenheit, I don't know but what
I can make an arrangement hy
which the heat of the stars wili
close the circuit at. the proper time
automatically and directly. It is
curious that the heat of a star mil
lions of miles away should close a
circuit on this miserable little
earth, but Ido not think it is im
possible." Of the practical uses for
wliich the phonograph may be
made available, Mr. Edison says:
"I expect to have my improved
phongraph ready in four or five
mouths." This will be useful for
many purposes, as a business man
can speak a letter to tbe machine,
ami bis offlce boy, who need not be a
short-hand writer, can write it
down at auy time, as rapidly or
slowly as lie desires. Then we
mean to use it to enable persons to
enjoy good music at home. Say,
for instance, Adeline Patti sings
the 'Blue Danube' into tlie phono
graph, we will reproduce the perfo
rated tin-foil on which her singing
is impressed, arid sell it in sheets.
It can be reproduced ill any pallor
with equal fulness and about one
half I tie origin il volume. In the
same way tlie tones of a great elo
cutionist cm be preserved aud

ican Philological Society wants one
of my improved phonographs to

Too Much Marrying.
[St. I.cuis Republican.]
There is a young ludy in tills
city who has more parents and
step-parents living than any one
she ever heard of. This is the way
she tells the story:
"You know papa and mamma
never could agree, and so finally
they got divorced. I don't say
whose fault it was, but mamma
really did behave ugly sometimes,
and even I could not get along
witli her. So when the separation
came I went to live with papa.
Shortly afterwards mamma mar
ried again, and papa was not long
iv following suit. I did not like
it very well at first, but my step
mother turned out first-rate and
I got to like her splendid. Then
papa seemed to get infatuated witli
another woman that, he got ac
quainted with, and she wheedled
around him until siie made trouble,
und the result was another divorce,
and papa soon married the woman
that made the trouble. When the
separation took place I went with
my step-mother, because I loveil
her and because my services were
necessary to help take care of the
baby. Then what does she do but
go and get married. I declare I
never saw so much marrying in ray
life. It only happened a little while
ago, and my now step-father
—I suppose he is—treats me In a
very kindly sort of way, as if be
couldn't help himself, hut didn't
like it a bit. I can't go back to
mamma, because she is mad with
me for going with papa in the fust
Instanoe, and I can't go to papa be
cause of that wheedling woman,
and I can't bear to stay where I am.
It is too bad that a girl should have
afaiher and a mother and two
stepfathers and two stepmothers all
living at once, and not a home that
she can feel at home in.
San Stefano, where the peace ne
gotiations between Russia and the
Porto were conducted, is under the

a Russian ambassador has often
been imprisoned, and the walled

Will re-enter Constantinople when

voutly .worshipped walls live the

taking of Constantinople, and have
lived mi until now with one side
oooked and the other waiting until,
in the fullness of things, it can in
Its turn be submitted to the lire.
During the massacre of Chin a

ping before. Mrs. Giles undertook
the task in order to illustrate tbe
ease witli which one may sing when

hitters, the leading alterative tonic of
the United Stales, has induced many of
these compounders of drums in disguise
to attempt the counterfeiting ot this
standard medlrine, but their efforts have
uever proved successful on a large scale,
und they have themselves in many In
stances notoriously "come to grin,"
through tbo iustrumeniulily ot the law.
