"I am very sorry," said Mr. Edison,
we inventor or more man seven won
ders to a World reporter, M ho called
upon him at Menlo Park j-estarday,
inui i cannot snow you tho aere-
puone to-uay; l nave just sent tho ap
plication ior a patent to Washington,
and have taken the machine I had
here to pieces."
This was a great disappointment to
the reporter, for from what he . had
heard oi it the aerophone was not a
thing to be inet with every da v, where
upon Mr. Edison, who is one-of the
most courteous gentlemen in the world,
undertook to explain its mechanism
and capabilities. The former was less
easy than the latter to understand
That Mr. Edison, however, has Inven
ted n machine which, piacea upon a
locomotive, will raiso its voice and an
nounce In giant tones that can be
heard for miles: "I am engine Marm
aduke, and will stop at Bontoorx sta
tion," or whatever other, warning or
information it chooses, there is not
the least reason to doubt. It seems
probable that Mr. Edison can make
whatever lie likes, and even without
meagre explanation of this latest won
der, which the reporter is herewith able
to give, no person who haa ever met
or visited his workshop at Menlo
Park, should doubt its practibilitles.
In the aerophone which, by the way,
as yet by no means complete the vi
brating diaphram princile now in use
in the marvelous phonograph is made
a key to the mystery. The vibrating
plate which, in the phonograph, moves
a sharp point over a revolving cylin
der, in the aerophone operates as a
valve to open and shut ofl' the fldw cf
steam through a pipe leading .'from
the boiler to a peculiarly arranged horn
or whistle. By this contrivance, it he

"Its quite simple," said Mr. Edison
smiling upon tmV perplexed reporter

this thing can utter words that can be
heard distinctly four miles off, and

With this for the present the re
porter has to content himself. Mr.
Edison having called the attention to
the immense value it would', have-on
shipboard in time of fog or ' in light
houses on stormy coasts, from which,
by its aid. the keepers could hail all
surrounding vessels, inforning them of
there whereabouts, and or the pecu
liar danger of each particular dangers
of each particular coast.
"I have another idea," said he, as
nonchaleiitly as if wonderful ideas
were as cheap as common potatoes.
"I propose, in sending tho exhibit of
several of my inventions to the Paris
exposition, to have a large phonograph
running it the machinery department.
I will have a piece of the foil, elctro
typed so that the impressions upon it
will not wear out by constant use. A
very simple contrivance will shift the
cylinder phonographs for this purxse
after it has passed under the pointer
to the other side, and so a perfect
stream of talk can lc kept up. J
haven't decided just what to make th
everlasting phonograph say but have
thought it would be a good plan to
have it rejcat in several languages
say, French, English, German, Ital
ian, etc - instructions how to get to
the main exhibition of phonographs,
which I presume will he in some oth
er building." :
Familiar as the reporter was with
the habit and powers of this remark
able machine, this idea of one phono
graph crying out all day In different
language the way to its companions,
, seemed almost incredible. Mr. Edison
was, however, perfectly serious, and
proposed while they were on the sub
ject the reporter should test "-witli
him the phonograph's ability to sing
a part song. A double mouth-piece
was then attached to the machines,
and Mr. Edison taking the air, the re
porter volunteering a tenor, a populaj
negro melody was forthwith sung to
the machine, "Now," said Mr. Edi
son, preparing to set the cylinder Ja
motion. "You will, I think, distinct
ly hear 1ki1i parts." Instantly t be :
that began and continued perfectjy
through two verses and'the cfiorus.
"Sometimes, you know,!' sain the in
vfciibir vjth a merry laugh, "rude
people will tulle at concerts; fiupjiosc
we see u we can prouuee tuai cneci.
Reversing the cylinder he then
poured into the mouthpiece a string of
sentences and ejaculations, occasional
ly interpolating a shrill whistle aud a
cat-call. The effect when, the phono
graph again began tooperate wastiroll
and wonderfqt beyopd conception.
The strains of the duet camp forth
clear and harmoniously, hut it was as
if a riot had broken out in a concert
"Can you," asked the reporter, look
ing perfectly aghast at tho hnportur
bable originator of such a contrivance,
"can you" account for for that,
"Oh," said Mr.Edison.with a laugh.

most effectually disposed of by Judge
