16 TO l.
ELECTRICITY AS A PLAYTHINC.
There is, and with good reason, a
wholesome fear present in the minds of
most persona when they are brought in
contact with electric power sufficiently
strong to be conspicuous in demonstra
tion. There is a sense of dread as in the
presence of what are called supernatur
al manifestations, and there is still
another fear made lively ty the uses to
which electricity baa been put for vol
untarily and accidentally inflicting
death. But the experimenting invent
ors play with electricity. Not in a sense
of idling away time, but in the sense of
handling it without fear. In a New
York paper a writer, who was evidently
new to such sensations, describes an
evening a party of ladies and gentlemen
of the Electro-Therapeutic association
enjoyed in the workshop ot Nikola Tesla,
the electrician and inventor who has
astonished the scientific world by per
mitting 250,000 v,olts of electricity to
pass through him without harm. The
report is written in a light vein, but
with no apparent desire to overdraw
the conditions as shown. Nikola has
discovered the art of transmitting elec
tricity without a wire, and promises to
make sunshine as soon aa he discovers
how to safely care for the 8,000,000 volta
necessary for that puprose.
During that electric evening 800,000
volts were let loose from intricate ap
paratus, and whirled about the big and
grimy machine shop on coils fastened
to- the walla. The air hummed and
throbbed with the tremendous energy.
Voices were drowned, eara were dinned
and the visitors were filled so full of
static electricity that sparks came when
they touched knuckles, and the liilie
arc lamp9 fastened on hund circuits
held over head were illumined simply
by holding them parallel with the coils
about the room. And then the room
waa darkened,- and the magician gave
his visitors a taste of what he humor
ously calls electric fireworks. He filled
glass rods with soft and beautiful light
without bringing them into direct con
tact with any circuit, but Bimply by
filling the room so full of static force
that it gathered in the pretty crystal
zigzags and made them luminous. As
one of the learned doctors put it in
terma poetical, it was a molecular bom
bardment, and about the prettiest thing
in electrics that one could well imagine.
Then the professor passed round a
sheaf of long glass roda about the
thicknesa of maccarom, but twice aa
long ; and filling a great ball hanging
from the ceiling with the wondrous and
mysterious force, which men are just
beginning to learn about, and which
the wise ones say is the sunlight and
the source of all life, he soon had his
guesta making fireworks, each on hie
own account, for each rod waa filled
with the throbbing,' phosphorescent
light, and the darkened room waa
turned into a veritable fairyland. And,
the learned ladies of the Electric
Therapeutical society, who know
more about anatomy and physiology
and the healing power of electricity
than a whole library of books, and who
can talk in four eylables without a
tremor, giggled and screamed, and
would not touch the instruments that
gave funny little shocka until they had
been gently taken in hand by the
masculine electro-therapeantios just
as if they were mere school girls learn
ing the A B Ca of electricity instead of
learned doctors and profeasorines.
And then the expert demonstrated
how easy it was to play with lightning.
In his own words the ease of the feat is
shown: "When I stand before an
audience and receive into my body a
charge of electricity of 250,000 voltage
power I do it to show how harmless this
agent can be made with proper han
dling. I am enabled to accomplish this
feat by the use of alternating current?,
and any able-bodied man not unusually
sensitive to electric force can perform
the same feat if he will use the same
machine that I do. I have simply
learned how to put the harness on that
amount of electricity. But 2,000 volts
from any other machine would kill me
as quickly as it killed Kemmler at Sing
Sing." And thus the atudy goes on,
and as the usea of electricity multiply,
its terrors decrease.
.. The Republican city convention has
been called for April 16. There is talk
of a citizenB' convention on the 15th.
Too much care in the selection of car
didates cannot be exercieed.

The Saturday Review's coupons are
Dot accumulating to any great extent at
the office of the board of supervisor?.
If the Review would devote more time
to making itself a newspaper and less
in trying to evade the law it would not
be compelled to come out, as it does
now, a reprint of the Gazttte. The mat
ter is readable enough in the Gazette,
but it is rather stale when it appears
the next week in the Review.
One of Lincoln'! Aoswerg.
Speaking1 in a recent speech of cer
tain Wat-liing-ton experiences in Lin
coln's time, 3Ir. Depew said: "While I
was there llr. John Ganson, of Buffalo,
was a member of congress. His face
and his head were hairless and polished
like a billiard ball. He was a demo
crat, but supported the president. The
conditions of the army were very blue
in the east and in the west. Ganson
came in one day and said: 'Mr. Presi
dent, I am risking my reelection in sup
porting your waeacasures. The cam
paign! seems very unsatisfactory. Of
course I will not give out anything' you
tell me. What is the situation at the
front?' Mr. Lincoln, in his searching
and sad way, looked at him for a mo
ment as if he were about to reveal the
secret of the whole army, and then
tumbled Ganson out of the reception
room by saving: 'Ganson, how clean
yon shave.'"
Tbe First Metal,
Gold, because it was found pure and
fairly tractable, was probably the first
metal used by man. Copper, it is true,
is found as a metal, but only in one
comparatively restricted locality. Oc
casionally gold fish hooks have been
discovered in graves in New Granada.
In mining a tunnel in Cauca a gold
hook was found in 1SS2 fifty feet under
the surface of the ground and beneath
what must have the bed of a river.
Copper fish hooks have been found in
many of the ancient burial mounds of
Peru.

Beaukegabd Wilson, who lives near
Yazoo City, Hiss., worked nine mules
the last year and made 300 bales of cot
ton. After disposing of his crop at an
average of five cente a pound and pay
ing his expenses his net profit amounted
to ?3,950.
Montana last year made great prog
ress in the diversification of her farm
ing interests, and she succeeded so well
that her cities were supplied with hogs
from her own borders, her exports of
potatoes were three thousand tons, and
in the growing of fruits and berries
there has been a most excellent start.
