JECTT'REa ABOt'T URA1N WAVES.
Within the last few months the icienltflc world
bas been gradually waking up to the immense
pfgelbilitlea of a recent discovery by a young
IteJlan named Mamml. who lives in London. This
(?'--????very promises noi only t?? d?. vclop a practical
ys?fu'neae equal or superior to that of H uitgen's,
which :t eeeemble-s in some respect?, 1 ut also t ?
rtve fresh stimulus to a variety f fascinating
?nd fruitful researches in other directions. The
j-jdunce which the Bavarian professor found, it
???? be remembered, is invisible, and will potM
fjgte many opaque substances, and yet possesses
*f* of th? pr ?perties of ordinary light. That Is
tesa? It produce? photographs, ar.d it will be
-vrne /iminous when it falls on a certain class ???
ngtatance called "fluorescent." What Marconi
v.as d:s, overed if? a form ?if energy which must
be called "electric waves" at present, and which
tra* at first conf?iun?led with The s.i-call d
*>BertstanM waves, but now proves to be quite
different.
?. ng aso as last autumn Mr. Proooo, chief
electrician of the T?rltish postal service, made a
*u-:..f public announceme.it of Marconi's experi?
ments ir. tele?rai,hy without wires by an entirely
r.ew system; and The Tribune referred to the
suhjeet at the time. In the current number of
?'Mci'lure's Maga-ine," however, further details
are snpplledi and while both the scientific and
? - .? r?'ader aro left In tantalizing aus
j-en?*> :n r-arurd t?> t.ie mechanism employed and
some f ?M pnweooao involved, additional light
is thrown on a subject which is destined in tho
near future to command th?? rapt attention Of all
who are interested in the mysteri??us phenomena
if Other wave?. Th" effect of this young Italian's
res?.,r b*0 is sure to be far reaching.
?H'TSIDK A CONDUCTOR.
When eieetri? ity passes along a copper wire
?Ithoji Interruption, it pervades the whole of
t; - ?.*..-? r fr rr-. s irfa ??? ? ? centre. P. jr when
by any monna the current Is made to alternate to
and fro with great frecjuency. It confines Itself to
the surface Something more happejis. too. It
is new believed that ea< h time that an electric \
current begins to Mow In a material conducor,
wr.at ts called an "electro-magnetic field" Is cre?
ai??! around it; that Is to say. a sort of strain Is
9-?t up In ether Immediately surrounding It. As ;
ia the current ceaeen, this strain is relaxed.
and the "field" ceases to exist. It may be imag- !
tned that. In one case, an infinite series of tiny
rrrirs of for<-e are made to encircle the wire at a
- distance frum the surface; in the other
that these rings shrink down slmultane
r.oth!n?rr.ess. But if the alternations
of curr-nt In the wire be very rapid (20,i?i).
100,000 or 1,000.000 to the secmd). then the for?
motion of these? rines of force or-curs with equal
frequency and greater abruptness. Thus, wave?
netted which proceed outwardly from the
C r.ductor equally in all directions, '.ike the rip
? toa on water When a ?tone is dropped in. Some
f th? energy flung off sideways from the con?
ductor never returns. This electro-magnetic
radiance, which is an entirely distinct thing from
what g.es on in the wire Itself, or at its ends, was
: of investigation by the late
- . Berta f Bonn. The brilliant r.sulti
work provoked unbounded delight among
physictota, and lent peculiar bitterness to the
grief to which his early death gave rise.
T: re Is a curie?us discrepancy in the accounts
of H? rtz's work. In some places he is repre
?ented as experimenting with currents having
100,000,t)OJ alternations per second, while else
? he la said to have devised apparatus which
gave him ???,???.???,??? waves a second. The
I however, is immaterial for present pur?
poses. The great dteoovery which he made was
t . he could retract the??, waves by a peculiar \
prism, could reflect them and mak? them exhibit
what are. called th? "interference" and "polarl
| r." pheOOtneevn of light. He alao discovered
that these waves or rays travelled with the ve- ?
loclty of light. Hi.? conclusions have been arcn
<?- r oervod by tho leading scientific auth Ti?
tles of the day.
H-tftlJB EXPERIMENTS.
Now, H-rtz would set up exceedingly rapid
?urtrings of current in one metallic conductor
and then place? a second conductor at a distance
fron M ta what was found to be an advan?
tageous position. The magnetic waves thrown
aterally from the primary conductor through
?.?. ild be cauKht by the secondary, and
could be ma!" to manifest themselves In various
Way? The hiirhest roecsOO was obtained, how?
ever, when the secondary was "Tuned" so as to
? I; that is to say. It was especially de
.? -fi ed to vibrato more naturally at the same
the r;rdiance from the primary wire than
at any other frequency. '

DOES THId EXPLAIN TELEPATHY?
Of late years mu.-h has been heard of "telep?
athy," "thought transferrence" and kindred In?
terchanges of feeling and Idea by a mysterious
process Are the??,-genuine experience?? Andare
they explain?-,! by ether waves at higher fre?
quency than ary yet known? Mr. Crookes be
lleve? both of these propositions credible, al- \
though not yet demonstrated. The vibrations
might be regarded as not susceptible to either re?
fraction or refl?ctl ??. and travelling In straight
lli.es through any kind or matter with ease. The
hypothec**? Is involved in more than one difficulty,
ar.d a vast amount of res-art h is yet necessary
to Its confirmation. In this connection the fol?
li wing passage, from a note to "The Kl-ctrte.il
Engineer," relative to Mr. Crookes's Ideas, may
property be quoted, with the prefatory remark
that the author Is a well-known authority In
e.ectrlcal science. He says:
"It Is very improbable, as I pointed nut long
ago. that brain at than ts unaccompanied by wave
disturbances in the ether. It Is only a question as
to th, ir intensity and capability of awak-ning
thought In a recipient brain. This, as I under?
stand It. Is the real question at issue, not whether ,
there be brain waves, but whether they be capa?
ble of accounting for the phenomena of telepathy.
I Bt.H see no reason to change my opinion aa to
the possibility of this act Ion "

men's trousers, and were small at the bottom, so
thai they were rather l".?e about the ankles.
Thexe bloomera were of black silk, and the Inner

rows of he.,,?? of various color* and work??d In

up and down the side, and made the bloomer?, or
