' Tills distinguished woman died nt Bos

As n pioneer in tho movement for tho
legal nud political elevation of women
she hail lived throngli ridicule, obloquy
and vfn persecution, until nt last sho
was honored nnd reverenced as tho hero

Tho yonng icoplo of this generation
cannot properly appreciate tho persis
tent conrago displayed by Lucy Stono
nnd her Bister women's rights ngitators
when they started out in that movement
40 years ago. All tho prejudices of so
ciety wero against them. They wero
looked upon ns monsters, as women who
had unscxed themselves nnd as enemies
of every conservative social institution.
They wero jeered, hooted, mobljcd nnd
insulted. Lucy Stono was n name of de
rision. She was despised and objurgated.
Tho sight of n woman as a speaker on n
public platform or as nn officer of a pub
lic meeting provoked astonishment nud
contempt. At this time, when every
right advocated by Lucy Stono is grouted
to women nud is exercised by them as n
matter of course, miclt unreasonable nud
tumultuous opposition at u period so re
cent seems inconceivable.
Complete woman btiffrogo exists in only
tho two stntcfl of Kansas and Wyoming,
but in tlJ htates of tho Union sotnu de
gree of wouian sulTrago is allowed, and
in all of them women can have every po
litical privilego on an eutiro equality
with men whenever they nsk for it, and
they will in no wiso tuffer cither in ina
culino reverence and admiration or in
public estimation IjccauMi they mako tho
demand. Every legal right sought by
Lucy Stono has been granted to women.
They nro even treated with partiality by
tho laws, as compared with men. Their
individuality is respected. It is not lost
Every avenno of activity is open to
them, nud they can pursue it without re
proach or criticism without even at
tracting attention because of their inno
vation. They aro as free as men to earn
their living in nny lawful way they
please. They aro not debarred by any
social prejudlco limply becauso they aro
women from following any honorable
career, public or private, which tliev
may desire. They nro debarred only by
tho natural physical limitations which
hut them out from employments re
quiring great strength and endurance.

AN ARTIFICIAL LARYNX.
A Highly Interfiling nnd Succefful Ex
periment on tho llumnn Throat.
At ouo of tho recent sojsions of tho
French Academy of 3Iedicino Dr. Pcrier,
surgeon of tho Larlbolslere hospital, pre
sented for the examination of his col
leagues a mnto who expressed all his
ideas by speech that is to say, by modu
lated sounds. Tho history of this man
is most curious nnd interesting from a
icientlfic point of view.
Ho wns habitually enjoying robust
health when ho was stricken with nn in
curable affection of tho larynx, tho first
symptoms of which wero observed in
January, 1891. Tired of tho treatment
that ho had to undergo for two years, ho
expressed a desiro to bo operated upou
ns radically ns possible.
Fortified with such nuthorlzation, Dr.
Perier proceeded on tho 12th of Juno
last toDperato upon him for tho total ex
tirpation of tho larynx. Every ono
knows that the region of tho larynx con
tains tho very organ of tho voice, nnd
that the vocal apparatus of man, if it is
indisputably the most delicate, is tho most
perfect of that of the higher beings. Its
distraction through disease or accident
13 consequently followed by aphony. The
operation onco terminated according to
tho rules of nrt, tho bkillful surgeon
formed in tho nnterior wnll of tho neck
a small orifice, which he left open. This
opening, consequently communicntlng
with both tho exterior nnd the pharynx,
wns reserved for experiments upon tho
re-establishment of the voico by means
of nn artificial larynx. Convalescence
proceeded quickly, und on tho 23th of
Juno tho health of tho patient was suf
ficiently re-established to permit of such
Iu concert with 3Ir. Anbry, manufac
turer of surgical instruments, Dr. Perier
directed theso tentatives toward tho
adaptation of an artificial larnyx, actu
ated by a blowing deuce, nnd not by tho
air issuing from tho trachea. Tho np
paratus relatively simple that they de
cided to ndopt, consists of a metallic
reed inclosed In n tube, nnd tho plates of
which, arranged in contrary directions,
obliterate half of tho light at each ex
tremity. This tube terminates above in
n spherical surface, cajiablo of being ap
plied hermetically to tho oriflco in tho
front of the neck. Below it is connected
with two elastic reservoirs, coupled nnd
mounted upon n metallic S bhnped ar
mature, permitting of ouo communi
cating with tho other in order to obtnin
a continuous current of nir of mean in
tensity. Ono of tho reservoirs is put iu
communication with a blowing device
formed of n bulb similar to thoco that
nctuato vniKirizers. Under tho effect of
tho curreut of air tho metallic reed en
ters into vibration nud emits n constant
note of uniform tonality, which is ap
proximately that of the ordinary diupa
son. Tho sound thus produced is led, so
to spenk, into tho buccal cavity.
It remains, then, in order to convert it
into truo spoken language, only to mnke
it undergo, through the Intermedium of
tho tongue, lips nnd teeth, us iu ordinary
pliuiiation, tho Eerlesof modulations that
produce tho nuances nnd the difference
in tho pi enunciation of words. These
nuances, as incredible ni tho fact may
seem at first sight, ure, it appears, ob
tained quito easily. An education of r.
few days suffices.
