and New Urunswick. All aboard, all
aboard, gentlemen!'' And then the
machine being put iu operation, it re
peated the cries loudly and distinctly.;
Inquiring of the ingenious inventor
how often this series of cries could be
repeated by rotating the same tin-foil
record, he replied that he had used the
same tin-foil sheet a thousand tiims,
and found it still effective.
Already this most extraordinary dis
covery has been applied to practical
purposes, and the American Clock Com
pany have purchased the right to at
tach it to their clocks, which will not
strike, but call the hours: 1 o'clock! 2
o'clock ! 3 o'clock !
Alarm clocks will also be arranged
not to rattle with discordant rings, but
to call out: "4 o'clock! wake up, wake
up! what are you sleeping for at this
hour?" The guard at the depot gate will be
superseded by a phonograph, which at
the proper time will announce the next
train and name its stopping stations.
The number of toys in the shape of
talking dolls which will fill the land
and enliven the nurseries is beyond all
calculation, and no one can begin to
name all the uses to which the inven
tion will be applied.

The Livingston Mansion Burned.
We clip the following from a New
York paper. Gen. Ilobt. 11. Living
ston of Plattsmouth, is a descendant
of the family mentioned, and was nam
ed after Judge Hubert It. Livingston.
father of Chancellor Livingston:
"The old Livingston mansion, near
Barry town, which was burned last
week, Saturday, had a history. The
estate, comprising 400 acres, was pur-

Co-EJncation of the Sexes.
While girls unquestionably have
their uses in the economy of nature,
nnJ possess "merit3 exclusively their
own, it may be boldly asserted that
they are totally unfit to pursue in corn
puny with young men the studies
which constitute the curriculum of ev
ery respectable college. One of the
earliest studies of the Freshman year
is the art of getting the janitor s cow
into the fourth slorv of the dormitorv'
fft i . " ...
j.ms can ne reauiiy mastered bv any
young man of good abilities and habits
of industiy and perseverance; but be
tween girls and cows there is a great
gulf fixed. The girl from her earliest
youth, looks upon the cow as a feroc
ious beast, prone to keep young ladies
in Jfie air in positions fatal to the pro
!t arrangement of her back hair. To
suppose that three or four young lady
students are capable of the complicat
ed pushing and pulling necessary to in
duce a cow to climb several flights of
stairs is to suppose that the natural
feminine fear of cows can be eradica
ted by the mere process of matricula
tion. Thus we see that one of the
very easiest of college studies is quite
beyond the range of female intellect.

sion overlooking the Hudsonwas erect

in honor of the patriot. Mrs. Mont
gomery s maiden name was Janet Liv

Judge Robert Pi. Livingston, and a sis
ter of Chancellor Livingston and Ed
ward Livingston. In ISIS, when the
remains of General Montgomery were
brought from Quebec and deposited in
St. Paul's church yard, New York, the
widow stood on the front piazza of her
house and saw. the vessel go by; and
when a salute wa3 fired she fell in a

TLe EeTelations of the "Phonograph
There is now lying before me a sheet
of "tin-foil" about twice the size of a
sheet of note paper.
Th eye can trace along its shining
surface a number of parallel lines, com
posed of slightly indented dots or marks
somewhat like those made by a tele
graphic message on a slip of paper.
This sheet of "tin-foil," while quite
smooth and unmarked, was- wound
round a "drum" and placed in a "pho
nograph" (first cousin or sister to a tel
ephone), and certain words were spoken
and certain cries uttered into the mout h
of the instrument, across which stretch
ed a disk of "tin" or "ferreotype plate."
provided with a minute "tracing-point."
This point touched lightly on the tin
foil, which, being rotated, passed in a
continuous spiral line beneath the said
tracing point. Consequently, the vi
brations proluced in the diaphragm by
the spoken words caused the tracing
point to correspondingly indent the
ua-ioii. xuere was thus produced on
iuo im-iou a record of the vibrations
which constituted the spoken words.
To retransforra thi3 into speech, all
that was necessary was to move the
drum back to its original position, so
. that the tracing point rested on the
tin-foil at the place where it had begun
to produce its indentations.
On now rapidly turning the "drum,"
the indented tin-foil passing under the
tracing-point, caused it to move (fol
lowing the indentation), and thus to
vibrate the "diaphragm" in exactly the
same manner in which it had been mov
ed before by-the tones of the voice.
This motion of the diaphragm ( won

The Dairyman humorously puts the
soimyuies of the undecided cheese-
maker on the skimming question. as
follows. We can only wish that Mac-
beth's witches may take the man who
takes the cream from our cliee.se:
lo skim or not to skim that is the
question. Whether 'tis nobler iu the
man to suffer the slings and arrows of
temptation's power, or take the cream
from evening's mess of milk; and by
skimming end it? To skim, to churn
no more and by the step summarily
end the question and the thousand ar
guments that rise up, cream like! 'Tis
a consummation that should give tis
thought. To skim, to churn! to ti-iui.'

rub! For best of butter there's an o'er

cheese, must give us pause. Theie'B

so very small; for who would ruin, what

or from proud men's tab.es drive the
use of cheese, because so poor, and
make them think they do not relish that
which Englishmen with every meal doth
take, because impoverished and taste
less, made by use of skimmer? Then
the extra work to grunt and sweat
over the churn rnd bowl, and the uten
sils of the butler room, with dubious
hope of getting one's reward in the in
