indications the coming season will give
local theater-goers more famous artists and
new plays than was the case during the
past dramatic \~ear. With regard to the
artists at least this is certainly a consum
mation to be wished for, as it is some
what surprising that of the new actors
and actre<-es who played in the
East last season — new" that is to
America — not one of those who had just
gone home to Europe, with their pockets
full of dollars, has come west of Chicago.

ences, but he isnot a dramatic artist, in the
theatrical sense of the word.
The fact that San Francisco has not been
hearing many of the newest plays, is not,
perhaps, a great loss. Critics anil the pub
lic alike, in the East and Europe, are begin
ning to weary of the eternal problem play,
which never succeeds in solving a single
social problem, and is only written to p>an
der to a certain fin de siecle craze for sensa
tionalism. Works like "The Notorious
Mrs. Ebbsmith," may be cleverly con
structed to make a bid for popular" favor,
but even the people who enjoy them most,
do not pretend that such plays have merit
enough to live.

Two Californians Who Withstand Strong
The Salambos, brother and sister, who
puzzled Orpheum audiences last week with

they have interested physicians by their
endurance in resisting electric shocks that
would prostrate any ordinary man or
Just before going on the stage the
brother charges himself with a quantity of
negative electricity by a process which he
keeps secret. His sister is charged with
the positive current, and when they bring
their fingers together, without touching, a
spark is produced. The Salambos will in
troduce new features into their electrical
act this week.
Araann will add the chief executive offi
cer of the State to his impersonations to

Survivors From the Colima Are Still Depict
ing Their Rescue,
The Colima rescue scene has proved so
successful at the Circus Royal and Water
Carnival that it has been decided to con
tinue it for another week.
The picture of the storm is made real-
istic by putting the house into complete |
darkness, while the water in the arena is
heard dashing and splashing to the accom- ;
paniment of the low rumbling of thunder.
Momentary flashes of light reveal the sea- :
men struggling in the water grasping bits !
of wreckage. When the calcium lights are
turned on the seamen are seen in an ap
parently exhausted condition attempting
to gain a portion of the deck, which has
floated into view. There is a good deal of
hope and despair expressed in pantomime
before the small boat from the San Juan
appears and rescues the men.
The survivors from the Colima who ap
pear in this scene have fallen cleverly into
a realistic way of acting their parts.
Tne Columbia Theater.
The comedy, "Nancy & C 0.," will be
produced at the Columbia Theater this

''A Night Off," will be presented.
Lillian Russell Alarmed.
For a few hours last Thursday night
Lillian Russell- was pretty badly fright
ened. Her voice gave out during the
finale of the first act of "The Tzigane"—
"dried up," as the singers say. The ex
pression which came upon her face when
this event occurred was not observed by
the general public, but those of Miss
Russell's friends who were watching her
at the moment could read it easily enough.
It said, as plainly as if the words had
I spoken: "My voice is gone. Will it ever
come back?" It was a look of intensest
I agony. As soon as the curtain came down
Miss Russell rushed to the dressing-room
where she wept bitterly for a long time
her understudy finishing the performance
| Ha PP. i] y, there turns out to be no
occasion for any alarm. The voice of this
beautiful woman needs a period of rest
that is all. It has been overworked for a
very long time, and when Miss Russell
recently caught a severe cold, instead of
endeavoring to lighten her labors, she
about doubled them, by rehearsing her
new opera all day long "and singin^ the
music of "La Perichole" at night." The
task would have been severe enough in
all conscience, had she been in the best of
condition. 11l as Miss Russell was it ex
ceeded her endurance. The physicians
say there is no permanent impairment
but that she must keep quiet for a reason
i able period.
The Electric Ele.
'ator for Business
uviwunhj use. — mere has been tierce
fighting during the last twelve months be
tween the hydraulic and the electric ele
vator systems. It is hardly surprising
that the older system, which has done good
service, and is still efficient for buildings of
moderate height, under certain conditions,
has had to give way to the more flexible
electric system, which is equal to the re
quirements of the tallest sky-scraper ever
built. The question of rivalry has been
virtually settled \by ? } the adoption of the
electric elevator in large, new, representa
tive buildings in Chicago, Minneapolis and
San Irancisco. after open competition

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SUNDAY, JUNE 16, 1895.
now recognized by many of the leading
architects of the country.
As tnere are not less "than 50,000 eleva
tors in operation in the United States, the
commercial importance of this addition to
the electrical field will be seen. Central
stations are already laying themselves out
for electric elevator business, and one sta
tion in New York is now running some 250
electric elevators of a total of 3000 horse
power. Although this system is adapted
for heavy work, especially in tall build
ings, and is coming into general use on
account of its saving in space, ease of
handling and high efficiency for business
purposes, one of the most important of its
utilizations will be for domestic needs. In
five years' time a well-appointed house
will as naturally have an electric elevator
as a bathroom. To many delicate and
elderly persons the mounting of steps is a
grievous burden, if not a serious source of
injury, and before long stairs will be looked
upon as a barbarism. It is now as easy
and cheap to have an electric elevator in a
private house as in a large office building.
The cost of operating it in, say a five-story
house, making fifty or sixty trips every
day, will not exceed $3 or $4 per month. It
is made to work automatically, so that
there is not the slightest danger. An in
valid or a child can operate it; it stops only
at each door and starts only when the ele
vator door is closed. For starting the old
lever is discarded, and all that is necessary
is to press a button.
Possibilities in Telegraphing With
out Wires. — The continued success which
has attended experiments in sending tele
graphic messages through space promises
to lead to remarkable developments. An
English electrician says it is difficult to
forecast the future of this new telegraphy,
So far, signaling has been carried on by
this means in one direction only, but
there is no reason why messages should
not be duplicated, and even quadrupli
cated. Further details are now to hand
of the establishment of communication
between the island of Mull and the main
land, near Oban. a few weeks ago, when
the connecting cable broke down. It will
be remembered that an insulated wire
was laid along the shore of the island,
and messages through it were sent to
the mainland across two miles of in
tervening space. * The oilicial report
states: "An ordinary Morse circuit
could not have given better results. The
chief difficulty was the incessant scream
ing of the wild fowl." W. H. Preece, in
commenting on the achievement rinds a
very different explanation of this supposed
"screaming of the sea fowl." He says
that strange, weird and mysterious
Bounds are frequently heard on long
lines of telegraph in the calm stillness of
the night, but whether they are due to ter
restrial or to cosmic causes remains to be
discovered. The sun's photosphere when
disturbed by spots may be subject to vio
lent electrical storms, and the vast jets of
incandescent hydrogen that flame up with
terrible velocity may excite electrical oscil
lations through ethereal space of such a
frequency as to influence our terrestrial
circuits. It may thus become possible for
us to hear on earth the electric storms of
Ay Electric Incibator.— The idea of
hatching eggs by electricity may appear
somewhat far-fetched, but electric incu
bation is not only being carried on in Ger
many, but is growing into a large industry.
A Strasburg electrician, who has been ex
perimenting for three years, proves that
with the electric incubator 90 chickens can
ordinarily be counted on out of every 100
eggs incubated. His apparatus is made
for 50, 100 and 200 eggs, and not only obvi
ates many of the difficulties connected
with the ordinary form of incubator, but
makes the process of hatching surer and
! quicker than it has ever been. The
! manipulation of the apparatus is
! brought down to a very simple phase,
the main feature being the maintenance
of a carefully regulated and uninterrupted
supply of current. An automatic attach
ment keeps the temperature within a
tenth of a degree of the normal heat of in
cubation. The degree of saturation of the
air is similarly maintained. The quantity
jof current required is very small. After
I the chickens are hatched they are turned
into an "electric mother," the upper part
of which is devoted to the freshly hatched
birds only, while the lower part is arranged
so that the chicks can run around on the
ground and at the same time find heat and
protection when they drsire it. The elec
'■ trie incubator has be'en found of great ser
: vice for winter work.
Finishing Cloth and Paper by Elec
tricity.—An electrical journal gives a new
method of finishing cloth and paper by
electricity. In the finishing of certain
kinds of woven fabrics and obtaining moire
and figured effects it has been the practice
to use hydraulic presses and heated platos.
The plates are heated in furnaces and
subjected, after the fabrics or paper have
been placed between them, to hydraulic
pressure. The difficulty with this system
is that during the operation the plates cool
and the action is not regular. The
adoption of a form of electric heating gives
exactly the required regularity and
constancy of temperature and makes the
process perfect. The plates are made hol
low, and the heating wire is wound within
it in the shape of a spiral, imoedded in
sufficient resistance to produce the neces
sary heating effect. A flexible cable
passes from each plate to a switchboard,
where electrical connection is made. As
the current is turned on in any of the
cables the plate to which it is attached is
raised to the required beat, which is main
tained undeviatingly until the process of
finishing is completed. The invention
comes from Germany, but it is such a man
ifest and radical improvement on old
methods that it is certain to be applied
largely by American manufacturers of
woven fabrics and paper.
A Power Loom Run by Electric Motor.—
The running of textile machines by elec
tricity is gradually but certainly supersed
ing the old costly and troublesome shaft
ing, pulleys, etc. A German iirm have put
upon the market a power loom actuated
entirely by electricity. The loom is of the
"Bradford" form, which is much used in
Europe for light woolen and cotton weaves,
and haß a 6-drop box motion on one side.
The medium size has a breadth of reed of
6-4, and makes in the neighborhood of 145
picks per minute, using something like
one-third of a horsepower. The electrical
connections are so made that the stopping
and starting of the loom are regulated
automatically, and should the filling break
or the spool become empty, the loom
ceases work in the usual manner. There
is by this arrangement a great saving of
labor, and the weaver can superintend a
large number of looms.

Alameda contains the largest borax re
finery in the world.
There are, no doubt, very many people
in the State unaware of the fact that there
are but two borax refineries worthy the

is located in New York City, and is a part
of a general chemical works. There is con
sumed in the United States about 140,000
tons of borax a year.
The Alameda works supplies half of this,
and not an inconsiderable amount of the
remainder is imported from England, not
withstanding a duty of 2 cents a pound.
The Pacific Coast contains all the borax
deposits yet discovered in the United
States. Nevada for years furnished the
crude supply, but just now it is being
drawn from Southern California. The
mines are about ten miles from Calico, and
the crude borax is hauled out by twenty
mule teams, a picture of one of which is to

The use of borax lias greatly increased of
late years. Not very long ago it was used
only as a drug. Now it is used in the
manufacture of soaps for toilet purposes,
as a disinfectant and curative, and very
largely for preserving meats, in the latter
supplanting saltpeter, and to some extent
taking the place of salt. Its price for years
forbade its use in larjje quantities in com

methods of refining the price has greatly

After three years of acute suffering from bron-
chitis and insomnia and having been treated dur-
Ing this time by physicians of both the old and nr\r
schools without the slightest improvement I con-
sulted Dr. LI Po Tai Jr., who at once found :h«
direct cause of the trouble. After a course of treat-
ment with him I can pronounce myself cured. I
