the opinion that in iliwovtring the

of tho anly remaining unknown quantity
necessary to an alisolute solution of the
electric light problem.
Some intoreming . experiments were
made in Menln I'ark vosterdny, wliich
havo determined Mr. Edison to reduce
the size of the carbon borsesliotis in the
glola-a. Two light that have been burn
inu contaiitIy for nearly 2oti hours, were
taken down in order to ascertain whether
they bad depreciated by combustion
ai nco lirst lighted, iiy inciins of the gal
vanometer, an nccurate tosl. was made,
and the result was compared with the
original tests. No reduction had been
untie. That is to y, the amount of
oxygen that bail gained admittance had
been so inlinitesiuiul tlmt tho combus
tion of the onrboti could not bo measured
by tho lincst and nicest test. It was
found too, that, by reducing theaizeof
the carbon horceshooa one thinl, eleven
lights ooutd be generated jier horse
power instead of eight. By increasing
tho resistance of tlie lamps from 100 to
2iHl ohms Mr. Edison finda that be can
still further increase, tho number of

not bo attempted. Aftliougtl wr.'raV-
