CAS AND ELECTRICITY.
A. llrllllMDt Light til ltcnult of III Kill
Quite a sensation was created a week
or two ago by Trofessor Vivian Iewes
Informing the member of the Gas In
tltute at Kdlnburgh that a French
clenttst, M. Penayrouso, had discov
ered a means of Increasing the Illum
inating power of gns something like fif
teen time. Professor Lewes had
ten made awnre of the discovery dur
ing a visit to M. Denayrouse In Farls,
and he hnd obtained permission to ex
periment with the new method of gas
Ughtir and to make a communication
upon the subject to the Kdlnburgh
meeting. In the Invention M. Denay
rouse hnd first teen struck with the
Idea of applying the principle of the
blowpipe to the burner. He employ a
Batnp with a spherical-shaped metallic
body and an Incandescent mantle. In
the bod of the lamp Is placed a very
email dynamo working a ventilator
and receiving the current from a couple
of small accumulators. The electrical
nergy required is exceedingly small
and is said to be only about one-third
volt and one-tenth ampere. This Is,
itowevar, quite sufficient to force a
current of air through the mantle and
cause the gas to burn with remarkable
brilliancy. According to M. Mellet the
lamp has a density of thirty-five to
forty carcels and consumes seven liter
of gas per carcel. Professor towes
had, however, been shown a lamp of
eighty cnrcels (about 800 candle pow
er), and he was convinced that the light
was quite as brilliant a an arc lamp.

A case of unusual strictness In Sab
bath observance I reported from West
Auburn, Me. A farmer wa waited on
by one of his neighbors, who asked for
the loan of his team the following Sun
day to take his wife and children to
the cemetery. At first he flatly refused
to let the team, arguing that It would
be a sin to receive money for such a
thing on the Sabbath day, but he finally
said to the neighbor that he would
think it over and let him know Satur
day, remarking that he would pray over
It In the meantime. Saturday the neigh-
bor called and the farmer said that he
pondered and prayed over the matter,
and come to the conclusion that It
would be no harm to let the team, but
that the neighbor must not pay for It
until some week day following. So the
neighbor hired the team to go to the
cemetery on Sunday, paying for It on
Monday, and everything was satlsfac
Work for the Blind.
A new occupation for the blind U
made possible by an Invention of the
mechanical engineer Maznew of St.
Petersburg. According to the "Nowoje
Wremja," he has fastened to the Rem
ington typewriter an attachment en
abllng the blind to write upon this ma
chine from dictation. One of these at
tachments was on exhibition In the
typographical exhibition In St. Peters
burg last month, a blind lady showing
off the advantages. The key-board used
by Maznew is more than four times the
size of the original keyboard, the char
acters of the Brail alphabet for the
blind being attached next to the ordl
ary characters of the type bars.

A wholesale dry goods merchant of
New York city recently gave a supper
to twenty of his friends engaged In the
dry goods business In the city. As one
of the guests happened to speak of the
state In which he was born, the host
made Inquiry into the nativity of the
others, and it turned out that the twen
ty men were born In twenty different
states of the union. Five were natives
of New Kngland states, four of south
ern Btates, seven of states running from
New Jersey to the Mississippi, two of
states beyond the Rocky mountains,
one of Nebraska and one of New York.

A sad blow at "Journalistic enter
prise" ha len dealt by an unfeeling
Judge In California. An ambition
young reporter on the Ix Angele
Herald, who had wearied of ordinary
assignments, conceived the Idea of win
ning fame by getting up a sensation. So
he feigned Insanity, was brought be
fore the court for examination, wa
pronounced a subject for the asylum,
and was sent to the state Institution at
Highlands. After staying long enough
to get material for a good "story," he
wanted to get out. but In order to se
cure hi release, was obliged to tell the
whole story of his deceit. The Judge
who had committed him cited hlra to
appear to answer the charge of con
tempt of court, and sentenced him to
pay a fine of $200 or serve 100 day In
J.ill. The Judge accepted the plea that
no disrespect for him personally had
been Intended, but explained that con
tempt of court was not an offense
against the person of the Judge, but
against the government, because It Is
an unlawful interference with the or
derly administration of Justice by the
tribunals created for that purpose. In
this case the reporter, by deceit, had
caused the machinery of Justice to be
set In motion, Involving considerable
public expense, and when brought be
fore the court acted In a disorderly and
Insolont manner to Induce the court to
make an Improper and Illegal order.
The judge proceeded to express these
views upon the plea that a Journalistic
criminal ought to be treated more
leniently than one not in "the profes
sion." "Possibly from the standpoint
of a reporter, uch conduct may seem
right and proper. It Is possible even
that In some quarter an attempt to
deceive a court of Justice, and by de
ceit to procure an improper and illegal
order an order Involving the expendi
ture of considerable public money, and
resulting In the sending of a sane man
to an Insane asylum may be looked
upon as legitimate Journalistic enter
prise. I hardly think, however, that,
upon sober second thought, any citizen
would bo regard it. One who embarks
upon such an enterprise an enterprise
which Involves a violation of law, an
enterprise which Involve the commis
sion of a public offense must abide the
Monks Who Drink Beer.
Washington, D. C , Aug. 18 It Is
understood that Mgr. Satolll is giving
hi attention to the question raised by
the petition to himself for the suppres
sion of the brewery conducted by tho
Benedlollne monks at Beatty, Pa., with
a view to harmonizing the differences
as to placate the complainants and at
the same time not deal harshly with
the ecclesiastics who conduct tho brew
ery. He is f Ivlng his attention to the
petition not only from tho point of view
of the petitioners, but also considers
the fact that the monks are native Ger
mans, who cannot see the harm in
drlpkijjr beer made after the maimer
pursued in the fa' norland. The effort
will be to settle the dispute without
any formal decision.
