The climax of the day was reach

demned every executive department
of the Government. for its arrogant
treatment of the only branch of the
Government in direct touch with
the people of the country-the
house of representatives-and
shouted out the nomination of

the United States.
The house thundred its acquies

STARS SING TO EARTH.
Electrician Claims invention to Transit
Music of Planets.
New York.-Mlusic from the
the stars! captuvl melodies from
the planets! Prof.-C. Albertson. an
electrical engineer whose inventon
of the so-cal!ed "magnet train",
created a seisation in scientifc cir
eles a few months ago. has invent
%d an instrument which he believes
is the keynote of ultimate communi
caZon between the planets.
Light rays are the media for
bringing communications with the
stars into Prof Albertson's hands.
F-rom the newv invention the music
and orignal melodies andl harmon
ies of the stars may be extracted as
well as others soundls no mortal
ever heard before. Light rays
iron' the sun. moon. or from the re
motest visible .star in space may be
so utilized as to play the music of
mortal ecmposers in a fewv weeks.
Albetrson says he wvill have his ex
periments brought to such a de-.
gree of perfection that he will give
a midnight concert at his home for
scientists and the press.
"It is a scientific fact," said Prof.
Albertson today. "that a light ray
falling upon the suHfaee of a small
polished steel plate for example will
produce a tone. Graham Bell long
ago demonstrated that a lig'ht ray
may be used as a conductor to car
rv 'the human voice. Mvy invention
merely follows out this line of
thought. I believe 'MIessages from
Mlars' will soon be a reality.
"A tone produced from a light
ray falling on a polished steel plate
is inaudible. however, unless the
plate is inserted into an electric cir
cuit also containing a microphone
or telephone earpiece-this is the
nrinciple underlying my" invention.
Instead of a plate or hollow steel
shell. however. there are involved a
number of small steel cylinders
varying in length. perfectly polish
ed inside andl so arranged within a
box as to v'ibrate freely. The en
tire box is made a part of the elec
tric circuit and in this circuit is also
a microphone or earpiece.
"In front of the cylinder is a re
volving disk which is so perforated
that a light ray will be thrown in
different directions when passing
through small holes. There is a
prism fixed behind a revolving disk
.and a tu.be containing a lens which

"Sounds and music transmittedl
from various plannets tell differen
Storivs." he said. "For instance.
whe-n an instrumnt is aimed at Ar
ctiurus sounds of contrast are heard
at first. It sounded to le like aI
ear splittig hurricane. then like
a roar of a thousand Niagaras.
then soothing like melodious. low
whispering and exquisite. Soft sing
ing. One naturally would think the
more powerful a light ray the bet
ter the musical result. but this not
so. A far away fixed star is the
one that produces the sweetest
tones. This I believe to be due to
the nominterference of reflected
light from the invisible revolving
about the sun."
TRICKS OF A HINDOO JUGGLER.

"When in India I made the ac

to instruct me in all his tricks. I H
said that it was imaginary on the

Vestern nations, was too anima
