It Is a curious fact that while the average man knows that, roughly speaking, there are two kinds of "elec tric light"—the arc light and the In candescent light—he has a hazy notion of the difference between the two. The arc light and the Incandescent light differ wholly in principle, in brilliancy, in appearance and In the mode of use. The distinguishing dif ference to an ordinary observer be tween arc and incandescent lights may be briefly stated thus: Arc lights burn In the open air with carbon stick or pencils, the points or ends of which are heated to a white heat and grad ually consumed. Incandescent lights, on the contrary, are produced inside small glass globes of various shaies from which the air has been exhausted. These lights are caused by the passage of electricity through a fine resisting wire or thread, which Is thereby raised into a white or incandescent light without being consumed on account of the absence of air. If air leaks In the filament Immediately burns up. and that Is the end of it. The term "arc" Is an old one adopt ed years ago, referring to the suppos ed shape of an electric spark in pass ing from one carbon point to the oth* »x.—Harper's Weekly. LIFE CHEAP IN CHINA.
