The Invention Resembles a

That Weapon.
There are scarcely any of the minor
arts which have received so much atten
tion during recent years as has photog
raphy. While it Is painfully true that
a long-suffering community now and
then lifts ' up its voice praying for the
extermination of the omnipresent nui
sance, the amateur photographer, it
nevertheless is indebted to photography
for valuable services without number.
Indeed, it would be very hard to men
tion any particular field of industry and
art which is not indebted to photography
for some improvement or other, In the
scientific world the camera has per
formed wonders that were scarcely
dreamed of twenty-five or even fifteen
years ago. The branch of the art in
volving instantaneous photography ot
subjects in rapid action has been a field
of which the amateurs have fought shy:
but if one is to believe notice* of recent
improvement 111 cameras especially
built for this purpose, the markets will
soon offer much of a decidedly unique
type. gQg
Instantaneous Photography.
Most of the work in instantaneous pho
tography has been of. an unsystematic
and desultory nature and limited scope,
chiefly because the operators ,were
promoted more by curiosity than any
thing else to see what cou la be done in
this line. Mr. bridge, of California,
has the honor of making the first lateral
photograph of a horse trdlting at full
speed for the purpose of settling a con
troversy among horsemen as to "whether
all the feet of a horse while trotting were
entirely clear of the ground" at any one
instant of time, This was as early as
1872. It was not till several years later
that he conceived the idea that animal
locomotion might be investigated by

means ot instantaneous photography
with splendid results, of value
to the artist as well as to
the student of science and the phi
losopher. Mr. Muybridge's method of
•securing his plates was simple enough.
He arranged a number of cameras side
by side in a line parallel to a track over
which the subject was to move, By this
means he obtained an Instantaneous
photograph, at regulated intervals of
time and distance, of a continued move
ment of man or, animal passing before
.... this battery of eras. The pictures
Obtained thus caused a great sensation,
t ■ \ especially in regard to the movements
'of the horse, and it was proved that
[neither horsemen nor artists had had
the slightest idea of the correct position
.1 of this animal, when running, jumping
or trotting.
I Professor Eakin's method of securing
a plate showing a succession of actions
in a movement instantaneously photo
graphed is very ingenious. The object
obe studied is moved in sunlight
before a dark background, prefer
ably a deep recess painted
black. A disk with one or more
_^~«. openings in it is

Whiie the open

the camera re

so on again and
again as often
as required until
the object has
moved beyond
the range of tne
lens or plate. On
this plate are
now a series of
images which
can" be easily
compared. With
the present "ex

obtained are
very fine. If the

'•' no ai. yaw.v. vent a camera
that will give us a picture of the- sea
lion's laugh, the mocking echo or a
Chlcagoan's modesty?" exclaimed -ah
ardent amateur photographer at a recent
meeting. While this young person was
somewhat unreasonable in his demands,
he might be surprised to know that a
Frenchman has brought a photograph c
apparatus to Mich perfection that titer*
will be no limit of securing pictures or
anything within -reasonable demands,
let the objects ; be what ihey may, in
motion or othefwTse.
The .'proposition is nothing more or
less than to put a "photographic gun"
on the market. This instrument," which
in reality is nothing but a camera of
unique shape, has been" in existence for
some time past, though not. on account
of its price, within the reach of the av
erage amateur. To Prof. Morey. -of
France, belongs the honor ot -first in
troducing, this curious gun to the pub
lic, and the professor in Ills turn does
not claim for himself the original con
ception of the. contrivance, 'hut he has
brought it up to its present perfection.
One can easily understand what a
wide field of "possibilities is opened
for an operator armed with this "photo
graphic gun.'' First of all, -ifj- he is-, so
inclined Miedoimhty amateurcan "pose"
for admiring friends as' a "dead cold
sport" when, tossing his'camera gun on
his shoulder and strapping his cartridge
belt full of '"extra sensitive dry plates,"
he goes forth in quest of game. Then
that bugbear of a timid photographer—
the tramp— will no longer dare to -stop
him and make him "take" him-an^ihis
brother tramps in numberless attitudes.
All he will have to do is to aim his gun
camera at the intruders, take a snap shot
and the tramps will flee. Tnere are hun-

dreds of other advantages to be derived
from this newfangled machine. *iffi~
' But from a serious point of view this
photographic gun is ot the greatest pos
sible value for obtaining good instan
taneous photographs of animals which
hove hitherto escaped without having
their pictures taken. Birds in particu
lar, will, of course, be one of the chief
objects to be photographed. At a recent
exhibition there were some specimens
of such pictures shown which were
truly marvelous, not only from a scien
tific point ot view, but perhaps more
from tlieir suggestion of artistic possi
bilities. One of these latteu showed
an eagle soaring in the sun
lit heights of ethereal blue. The
easy grace of his poise as fif he
sailed along on outstretched wings was
admirably shown in half a dozen plates
taken at intervals of less than a second.
Of course, this was an exceptionally line
study, as the action of the object was
comparatively slow. Another good speci
men, or rather series of plates, showed
a number of sea gulls rising and falling
in their graceful curves as they hovered
over the undulating waves in search of
food. In such study the Chicagoans
would have ample opportunity on the
lake front. Still another continuous
plate showed a startled duck in its er
ratic flight. In looking at this plate one
could not help but feel grateful that the
subject was explained, as it looked as
muck like au ordinary duck as a ruffled
penwiper.
Advantages of the Gun.
Armed with one of these wonderful
photographic guns you canine yourself
! to the woods and enjoy ali the excite
! ment of a day's hunt without incurring
the risk of any of its dangers. Sus
pended at your side you carry the am
munition in the shape of a dozen cylind
ers containing twelve plates each. The
gun is in appearance but little different
from an ordinary breech-loader, except
ing that the barrel has a higher eleva
tion from the butt. 'The photographer
is transformed into a hunter pure and
simple, ready to take his game on the
wing at any moment. A bird comes in •
range; up goes the gun. Instead of the ;
deafening report of a cartridge there. is
but a sharp click of some revolving
wheels as the plates are moved. The
bird aimed at grins as he flies on, think
ing what a ruin old duffel: you are.
Everybody is hftppy and nobody hurt,
no blood spilt and nose out of joint from
a kicking gun.
The camera gun can be used not only
for birds but for every conceivable ob
ject where there is a desire to obtain in
stantaneous plates illustrating any
movement. Some idea of the swiftness
in taking these pictures can be had when
| it is said that a good Operator is able to
take more than a dozen fine pictures in
a second. The cylinder wnich holds
- the plates can oe "charged so as to give
twelve, six or three pictures, which, of
course, are larger in proportion to the
number of plates used. ' To give a sec
ond of time for taking a dozen photo
graphs of this nature is considered a
generous allowance by experts in their '
line, many of whom use less than half a
second for taking the same number of
plates. 'v"*- : -I f fifi'fififif
Among the interesting specimens ex
hibited at the meeting mentioned were
two that attracted a good deal of atten
tion for their clearness, as well as for
the subject they illustrated. One was a
"continuous" plate giving the eight
different phases of a hysterical yawn.
The expression in the various stages of
the yawn is irrisistibly comical. An
other is of a man who, when told that
pictures were produced in such an in
credibly short time, laughingly ex
claimed: '"Oh! get out; that's non
sense!". Somebody caught his picture
while uttering these words, and he saw
himself in tliree different attitudes, all
very happy.
There will be a very large and com
prehensive display of everything con-'
nected with photography at the world's
fair, and the thousands of amateurs and
professionals in this delightful branch
j of art will have an almost inexhaustible
i field for study and observation.

] Chicago, Feb. 18. — It was found to-;
day that most of the puts on wheat sold
yesterday bad a profit in -them,
and J further heavy lines - were
put. Pardridge secured perhaps
1,000,000 bu in that way from 70% cto
76% c. There was some fresh export
business reported from the seaboard.
There was very general heaviness.
Wheat, corn, oats and provisions were
all considerably lower at the close than
on the day before. The respective de
clines are in wheat and corn, each %c.\
oats, %c; pork. 2)£c; lard, from 2,^c to
sc, and ribs, 7%c.
Wheat at the opening was about y,c
lower than yesterday's closing, held
-firm and then declined %c for May and
Xc for July, ruled steady, and the clos
ing was %c lower for May and lc lower
for July. There was free unloading of
long property, including a number of
important lines from suoposed clique
sources. The weakness was a continu
ance ot the feeling developed by the
snow storm, while cables were weak
and lower and the prospects were that
the visible supply might show an in
crease of 350.000 or 400,000. The stock
situation in Wall street and the general
financial outlook created some distrust
and were an important bear factor.
Corn was heavy through lack of sup
port, lt seemed to be a day of general
liquidation. • Operators were talking
about the big visible supply, which tar
exceeds that of last year at this time,
and pointed to the indifferent cash de
mand, the fairly liberal movement
from first hands and the small export
business. "Shorts"' were fair buyers at
the decline and caused a slight reaction.
Oats . were also slow and weak, and
followed corn.
Hog products were very sparingly
dealt in and for lack ot assistance from
the usual supporters sagged almost
steadily and closed near bottom figures.
Estimated receipts . for Monday:
Wheat. 179 cars; corn, 325 cars : oats,
315 cars; hogs, 20,000.

,38)^. But in the late dealings the sell
ing was resumed, and Reading re
tired .to 30%, „ while New En
gland dropped $% per cent '. to
40. The last-named, however, dropped
Ififi per cent toward the close, its final
loss being 2? per cent, but Reading at
30% was down \%. A story that the
other coal roads , were shading March
prices induced. some bear selling, and
Lackawanna was depressed IJ£ per
cent to 149%, and Jersey Central 1 per
cent to 124. . These losses were after
ward made up. The action of the Penn
sylvania in withdrawing from connec
tion with the New England wus a factor
in making lower prices for that stock, as
indicating more powerful opposition to
the combination.
y Among the industrials some early
weakness in Cordage, which was de
pressed,! pjer cent to 03%, was followed
by 'a recovery to GO, but Sugar 'was
strong Irom the outset, rising pearly 2
per cent to 125%. The late, drive, how
ever, wiped out these gains, and both
closed with a small loss. Burlington at
one time showed a gain of 1% per 'cent
and General Electric of 1%, but both
closed practically unchanged. Manhat
tan rose in the early dealings from 159%
to 102%, but yielded a portion of the ad
vance, closing only 1 per higher at
101%. The remainder ot the list was
inclined to advance, but remained with
in narrow limits and their final changes
were insignificant, . . fff. : .

Wheat was lower, as the late clique
prices were not sustained. Country
team roads are improved, and in some
parts farmers are selling freely. This
gives.' fresh railroad movements, with
grain in transit that may be turned to
any' market that promises the best, re
sults. Whatever the clique dealing in
Chicago may be, it seems to wetTken
under large possible receipts. With it
others fall also, for they were sustained
by that mysterious influence not under
stood. Cables were flat, and the weather
was not bad for winter grain on the
ground. Minneapolis received 264 cars.

And the rack went scudding by;
Spectrally the branches lifted ■■ -.
Naked arms against the sky. .'.'-.'
What cared we thouph time was flitting,
What cared we though wiuds made moan,
In the witching twilight sitting
All alone?
She withiD a rocker cosy,
I upon a hassock low. -
Watching o'er her face the rosy
- "Cupid dimples come and go;
For the lover firelight heightened
Every blush with ardor Dold,
And her locks of brown were brightened
Into gold.
Like the fabulous '•Jack Homer"
-- Of the' merry nursery page.
Gleeful from a dusky corner ...
Grinned an idol jgray with ace:
And methought his dark lips muttered, '
Whit I longed to there avow; -
"Tell her," were the words he uttered,
"Tell her now I"
Then there fell a silence sweeter : . ,
Than when air is stirred with song, ifi '.".
Thau when strains in mellow meter ...
Swing with rhythmic sweep along.
In her eyes a look beguiling
Bade mc not to break the spell; . .
