Two Remarkable Statues Lately Unearthed. Lucky Fini of a otcl Frenchman Aa Ame rican AIoag-From Days of Atraham. CAIRO, Egypt Two of the most re markable statues ever found were re cently unearthed by M. Georges Le grain. the noted French Egyptologist, from the ruins of the temple at Kar nak, ou the upper Nile. One of these is in alabaster and represents the great Theban god Amnion. This alabaster god is eighteen feet high, and was orig inally made from one solid block of riione, the largest alabaster statue in ihe world, it was found in three pieces, vvhich were easily put together. The artistic iinish is perfect. The second statue is one that was set up by King lTfurtascn 1 in honor of ais lather, back in the days of Abra ham. On the iap of this eliigy is a oiaO, upon whicn are carved inscrip tions proving the antiquity oi the work. Accoaipanying Ai. legraiu when ae made Lbe discovery was Charles N. Jrowdison, corresponding secretary oi the Cnicago Society of Egyptian Ite seaivii, wno is touring iu tne interest of the society he represents and pho cOgraphlng l-gypt m colors. LOISO DISTANc. Oiaini thai Telegraphy Over Ocean Without Wires is Assuitd. A LI V VOiiiv, A topvciai cable lu itic Journal irom Paris says: Dc jJucretct, tne Elaine ill i-'roncn electri cian, who, like Aiarconi, iuio occ-a c perimcnting with wireless telegraphy and is a scientist of high repute in France, made same experiments, the other day. In the presence of Consul Genr-ral (Jowuy, Deputy Consul Howoa ami a correspondent, he transmitted a message from one chamber in his labcratcry to another, tne wall being no obstacle. Dueretet then dictated the following: "My invention will enable us to send telegraphic messages without wire from Paris to New York. Transatlantic cables are so costly and cumbrous that they will soon be abandoned. 13y rea son of the rotundity of the earth w,e would require two poles, one in Paris and the other in New York, three thousand feet high. If this height is impracticable we can make fast a re ceiving pole in mid-ocean and keep a man there to transmit messages. The pole must be twelve hundred feet high. The automatic recorder that I invented needs no man. It records messages while a man sleeps, and will be of the greatest use for ships and an incalcu lable advantage during Avars." THE SKYLARK'S SONG. Rev. Mr. J. G. Wood, in an article on '"The Wonders of the Spring," says that the volume of sound produced by the skylark is most wonderful. "The lark ascends until it looks no larger than a midge, and can with difficulty bo seen by the unaided eye, and yet every note will be clearly audible to persons who are fully half a mile from the nest over which the bird utters its son?. Moreover, it never ceases to sing for a moment a feat which seems wonderful to us human beings, who find that a song of six or seven mi nutes in length, interspersed with rests and pauses, is more than try ing. JL.ven a practiced public speaker, though he can pause at the end of each sentence, finds the applause of the au dience a very welcome relief. More over, the singer and speaker need to use no exertion save exercising their voices. Yet the bird will pour out a continuous song of nearly twenty mi nutes in length and all the time has to support itself in the air by the con stant use of its wings." AXTI-VACCIXATION. PARIS, April 22 At a meeting of the Academy of Medicine, Dr. llerviu brought before that learned body the results of long study into the question of the ability of persons who had small pox to become tuberculous. The result of extensive investigations shows that the fact of having had 'smallpox makes a person more liable than if he had not had the disease, thus demolishing ano ther anti-vaccination contention. PHOTOGRAPHING THE STOMACH. BERLIN, Drs. Lang and Meltzing describe an apparatus they have in vented for photographing the interior of the stomach. The foremost end of the stomach tube contains a micro scopic camera and an electric light. When the stomach is emptied and filled with air the apnaratus photo graphs the most secret recesses. The negative is about the size of a cherry stone, but can be enlarged. lid you ever see one? It is c? p!a yf;.! 310 harmless as a kitten.
