Wattron, $12,000, Orine Thomas T Hed- An Invention to Revolutionize MuhIc. A new invention, is being per fected which if successful will revolutionize music. Music tea chers and musical prodigies will be far . more scarce. Dr. Thad- deus Cahill of Hollyhoke, Mass., is working to perfect an inven tion to distribute music through telephones by means of electric ity. He is establishing a plant in New York; this will accommo date 1000 instruments and will send the notes forth by thi? means to the homes of the sub scribers. The invention will do away with all the strings, reeds and other means devised by man to produce sound. They will be replaced by a battery which will transmit musical, electrical wav es, and these will be adjusted to as many different vibrations as the strings on a piano would be. To be sure the piano key board will be necssarv to produce this music. The pressing of the keys will operate a switch that will close the circuit leading to the alternators adjusted to produce just the note the piano string would produce. The. receiving telephone will have a megaphone devise that will senu the music through a room, restaurant or church. Ex United States Commerce The foreign commerce of the United States for the fiscal year ending June 30th, 1905 exceeded in both imports and exports that of any preceeding year. The ag gregate is $2,636,074,737. This exceeds the total of the preceed ing year by $184,120,095. The value of the imports is $1,117, 513,071. That of the exports is $1,518,561,666. Europe pre sents the largest foreign markets of the United States, taking more than a million dollars worth of our exports, while all the other parts of the world take less than half a billion dollars' worth. In Europe, Great Britain is our lar gest consumer. North America comes next. to Europe in this matter, taking $267,465,000 dol lars' worth of our exports. Our chief trade in North America is with Canada. Next comes South America, but the amount of ex ports from us is only $58,994,- 000 dollars' worth. Argentenia comes f.rst in South America Our exports to Asia are about equal to those to South America, the figures being $57,773,000 Japan comes first in Asia, China next. The figures for Oceania and Africa are, respectively, $35, 545,000 and $30,869,000. Our increasing trade with other parts of the world, together with the efforts making in Europe against American goods, has decreased the percentage of our exports to that continent so that whereas, prior to 1887, it was overeighty per cent, in 1905 it stood at lrogrcN8 of tlie White Races The success of Japan over Rus sia, sa38 Dr. S. L. Guhck in his "White Peril in the Far East," begins a readjustment of the bal ance of power among the nations a readjustment which promises to halt the territorial expansion of white races and to check their racial pride." There are facts in the "march of the white man" which are interesting just at this period of the world's history. An amazing increase of the white races has taken place dur ing the past two hundred years. According to the staticians, at the end of the seventeenth cen tury they formed but a small fraction of the world' total pop ulation, only about ten per cent, and it was not certain that they could defend themselves against the remainder, at a time when the Turks were threatening Cen tral Europe, and when Africa was dominant in the Mediterra nean. A century later they rium bereJ about 150,000.000. To day they comprise about a third of the entire population of the CHAS. CAHN General Merchandise. Dry Goods fit Notions.
