Dr. J. Harris I'ogers, of Washing
ton, is responsible for a now telegraph
invention, whioh will bo known its
visual synchronism. Tho discovery
consists of a method by which two
wheels, thousands of miles apart, may
bo kent revolving in perfect unison,
and tlie application consists in tho
ability to punt and transmit from ono
wheel to another about 150 words a
minute. By means of n small iustiu
ment with ten keys a message is first
perforated on a tapo. This tape runs
through a telegraphic instrument, and
the perforations permit small steel fin
gers to make electrical connections
with an ordinary telegraph who, which
in its turn connects with the receiver
on the other distant wheel, and inllu
onces ten mairne.ss provided with
curves and strokes, which combine to
form llomim letters in accordance with
the original perforations.
The two indicators or wheels which
actually form the visual synchronism
givo 000 revolutions a minute, and
each revolution forms a letter. This
gives about 150 wotdsa minute. Tho
5lor.se characters havo to bo inter
preted, but as visual syuchronomie
messages come out in Roman lettci's,
much labor is saved. "Autographic
telegraphy," said Sir. Rogers, "invent
ed uy the famous electrician, Bako
well, about thirty years ago, and af
terward improved upon by Father
Seech i, Edison, Gray and Sawyer,
failed in liractical applications for
want of tho rapid synchronism now
introduced by me. With tho aid of
the new discovery it may now ha util
ized." Now York Tribune.

New York, Nov. 22. At 1:15
o'clock this afternoon a fire broke out
in the First Ward public school, Long
Island City. One of the pupils of the
school had gone down into the base
ment and lighted the gas jet, when
the wood work next to the jet took
fire and a flame instantly shot up
through a crack in the floor. Over
900 children were studying at their
desks in various rooms of the school
building. When the children on the
first floor discovered the flames shoot
ing up through the boards they raised
the cry of fire. Instantly there was a
panic in every part of the building.
Children rushed pell moil for the nar
row doors, crowding and jostling
each other in their efforts to get out.
Children were piled up at the foot of
the stairs in heaps, and all attempts to
bring order out ol conlusion were at
first fruitless, but finally the firemen
and police were able to check the
children, although they had to con
tend with an excited mob of weeping
mothers that had appeared as soon
as news of the fire spread through the
neighborhood. The fire itself
amounted to but little, and as 'soon as
it was extinguished an examination of
the injured was commenced. It was
found that while hundreds were badly
bruhed and shocked, not one was fa
tally or seriouscd hurt.

The question of tips is nt length to

Another Murder MjHferj.
Chicago, Nov. 22. Another ele
ment of mystery has been added to
the already mysterious circumstances
in the death of Miss Eva Mitchell,
whose body was found lying on the
boulevard, near Forty-third street, in
Hyde Park, on Saturday night. It
appears that she had a very close
friend named Nettie White and this
girl was not present at her friend's
funeral, nor has she been seen since
Eva's death. The police are serching
for her on the theory that it may have

out in Ocrmaiiy. Tho wood is first
treated in a bath of caustic alkali, then
in 11 bath of hyposulphito of calcium
to which sulphur has been added, and
dually in a bath of acetato of lead. In
each of these baths tho wood icmaina
for several liouni. It is then dried und
