made to imitate the conduct of light
waves in soveral particulars. This gifted
investigator, now connected with the
University of Bonn, concentrated tlie
rays to a focus with a parabolic mirror.
Refraction as well as reflection was ac
coiiplishied. Electricity, proceceding in
straight lines,.was diverted from Its course
by a prism of pitch. The phenomena of
