An IntcroflUlnB procciM ( for Kencratlng electricity from coal without the Interven tion of the steam engine la described In the December Hnrper by the Inventor , Ur. Wil liam M Jacques. .Slttlni ; before nn open flro , B < tjs the writer. I have often ill earned of converting the storod-up energy ot the coal Into some form of energy oven more useful to nnn tlmn heat.Vc know that , theoretically at loaHt , nil of naturc'fl forces are Intcrcon- \ertlblo. why should not the potential en ergy of coal ho concerted directly Into elec tricity Instead of heat ? Could all of the energy bo extracted from n single pound of coal nnd made to do mechanical work , this work would more than cn.ua ! a day's labor of a very strong man. In the great coal fields that nro distributed OUT the mirfacu ot 'he earth nature has stored up a supply of energy safely catltn.ited to einial the hrtnil labor of the entire population ot the world continued for 1,000 jc&nt. The most convenient and useful , because the most tractable , form ot energy Is elec tricity. In the facility with which wo may at will anil without wnsto convert It Into Bush other form of energy as happens to bo desired lies the superiority of electricity over the rest of nature's forces. Having electricity , wo may easily product ) beat or light , or mechanical motion , or chemical force. ; but electricity Itself has hitherto been produced In quanllllcs only by the use of complicated mechanism and with great wasto. nicctrlclty Is today generated by a dynamo name that Is turned by nn engine which Is operate by steam , and the steam Is made from water by means of heat derived from the combustion of coal. Qut this la a long and circuitous process , with a largo Icnk- at every step. Much of the energy of \nKO goes up the chimney as heat or fltnoko , much of the heat Is lost In hollliiK the water to make steam , much of the ex pansive force of the steam Is wasted an It oncapes from the engine ; much of the power of tlio engine IH wasted as friction , and there Is nome loss In the dynamo Itself He- cent tents , mndo by n committee of the Nn- tlomil Electric Light association , of clght > model n electric light and power planti , . . . show thnt the average plant wastes 97I per > cent and utilises as electricity only 2 C per cent ot the energy theoretically obtainable from the coal. RL13CTKICITY DIHCCT FROM COAL. The problem then was to convert the en ergy of coil more directly Into electricity ; to do away with the dynamo nnd tlio Gleam engine , possibly even to ijo away with heat llsclf A multitude of experiments were mudo. In the earlier dajs my attempt was merely to do a\vay with tlio djnamo and with steam , nnd convert heat Into olectticlty. A flic of coke , burning on an Insulated grate , gave nome slight electrical manifestations , but they wore not encouraged Hxjici Inicnts with various novel forms ot thermopile weio tried , but a consideration of the theory of the sub- lect teen made It evident lint It was not oven theoretically possible to convert more than a very small percentage of the energy of the coal Into electricity In this way The gent ration of electric currents by allot nntcly healing and cooling Iho magnetic COICH ot wire cells gave no promlfe ot elllclent resulls I tried nature's plan of pioi'uclns ; lightning the evaporation of water and continual dissipation of vapor globules and though I succeeded In producing mlnlaturo thumlor- nloims , the nuanllt. of olcctilclty obtainable waa not aulljclent for any commercial use. Indeed , my researches have led mo lo doubl whether the Utal energy ot a good , brisk tlinnilorutonn , dramatic as l Us display , Is equal to the energy radiated from a bedroom flic. For a mlntilt * fraction of a second the force of a stroke of lightning Is tcrtillc , but Its duration Is so brief that , even If It could bo harnessed , It would he capable ot doing very llttlo useful woih Many other plans , all of them Intensely Intorosllng from a purely scientific point of view , were tried ; but from most ot them no current was ob tained that vvja economically capable of be ing put to any Industi lal use Nature ) Is a coy mistress , jet she likes to l o wooed , and to the diligent suitor gives occasional token of encouragement ; and It linppcncd thai ono day I surprised her In her secret , and discovered llio way by which wo may abandon , even combustion and heat Itself , and convert the stored-up energy of coal directly Into cloclrlclty. It eanio almost as n rovelallon Ibal If Iho oxygen of the air could bo made lo combine with the coal under such circumstances that the production of heat could bt > prevented , nnd at the eamo tlmo n conducting path could bo provided In which a cunent ot elcctilclty might develop , the chemical af finity of the coal for the ox > gen would necessarily bo converted Into electricity nnd not Into heat ; for any given form of energy will bo converted Into such other form as tlio surrounding conditions maUe most easy Given the proper conditions , tlio potential energy of coal would rather coiucit Itself Into electricity than Into licat. This led to experiments In which coal was submerged In n liquid o that llio ogcn of the air could not coiuo in direct contact with the coil and produce combustion. Kiirthcr , such a lUiul.l was chosen that when air was forced through It to thn coal the o\jgen of the air would temporarily enlor Into chem ical union with the liquid and then bo ei nuclod out by a further supply of ox > gen and foiccd to comblno with the coal Wo may plcturn cnch successive atom of oxvgcn , on Its way from the source ot air supply llnoiigli the liquid to the coal , as temporarily ontcilng Into chemical union with each of a row of atoms ot the liquid , Just as each successive man as ho circles around In tliu "grand light and left" of dancing tcm- ponirily elaspfl hands with each of the ladles of the sot. When one unbalance passes thioiigli another In this way it furnishes a path In which an eloctilo run cut ma ) flow , so thai by causing the oxjgen to combine with the carbon through the Intervening liquid oppoitunlty Is furnished for un elec tric cunent to develop , nnd tdncc combustion cannot tnKo pluce. the chemical alllnlty of the conl for the oxjgen l cunvciti-il directly Inlo electricity , ami not Into lietil. Liquids which Ibus allow atoms of oxjgcn and a current of electricity to pjt-M thiuugh them may bo called "elect ! olytic carrlcin " A IiSIHAllLn TnLUl'HON'IJ INNOVATION. When n busy nan wants to talk over the telephone Ids patlenro la always tried lo learn that tlio man he wishes to communi on to with 1 "busy talking. " On some much- occupied lines this m.iy happen so often ai > to become a positive nultunce , nnd the In convenience ot It Is apt to be felt In many di rections. Tlio Incl0ent.ll low ot money or tlmo may fall on llio called pulisrrlb. > r as well as the caller , nr , after ono or two \tiln endeavors to tmiKo the connection , n call l llkoly to bo directed cUcvv hero. The simplest form ot relief for nn overtaxed line IH a douhlo-track connection with the roatral oi lier two separata lines nnd stations , using ono for outward und tlio uthci for Inward calk * . Many people arc now adopting this method with gratifying results.

Tlio most striking point at- forilod by tliwo Improvement ? , npait from their manifest advantages , Is tlio way In wired limy suggest tint woato hut Just on- torlug the era of luxurious telephony , and Jjefore long the telephone will bo ux l for serial , business nnd even convorc.illotml pur- pos"8 to an extent never dreamt of. LONO DISTANCi : 1KLKPIIONY. Arcoidlng to olUclal reports the popular luo o ! telephone * , pu compared with thn two of the U'lriirnpU , li In the ratio nf 10 to 1. In ISM the number of telegiaph in err ; ) gee a-iit In the Lntttil States was In round tin- uiox 75ho'000 , while the telephone vvai , iiacil 750.000 TOO tlmcii. The latter , of courue. lucluJoJ In cities ami between short-dlnlance points , but Uio reports ot the companies alee * show lhat long-cllatanco telephony Is growing with amorlng ntrhlcs. The recclpti of the tele graph companies are nlrc.nl > beginning lo feel Iho effeel of this new form of competl- llon , where Iho sender and receiver of mes sages have Iho advantage ot personal and direct communication It Is reported that a now syndicate hns en- lerod Iho field with the nnnoiinced Intention of competing with the long-dlstanco company for publ'c ' patronage. Indcpendont local ex changes , which now number nearly 1,000 , are to be connected by long-distance wires , and the entire country Is to bo furnished with a network ot arteries for verlnl communica tion. The recent expiration ot the main Hell patent. * ) and thu present nssatiltn on the ller- llncr patent by the government are appar ently responsible for this prospective compe tition with the older concern Public Interest In the development of long distance telephony , tvivs the Chicago Chroni cle1 , Is centered In the dual question of rates nnd wrvlce To become genuinely poptilnr lolepliono service must bo cheapened. This Is particularly true of lnni-illtanco service , In which the proivnt rale1 * are practically prohibitory , except for Important business mcasigca or In the cnsc of the comparatively wealthy. There Is no valid reason why these rates should co illniio Iti thl cm of develop ment nnd clicniK-ncd cost of material and construction. If competition will bring long-distance telephony within roach of the masses It will bo a distinct public gain. AN ILICTIUC POSTAL unvicn. The electric It'ltor box. Is by no means nn unfamiliar device. As tlio postman's mall li dropped Inlo the strecl door box electric contact Is made and n bell Is rung In ttio kitchen. This Is a very "Itnplo nnd admir able provlrlon against the possibility of an Important teller that may demand nn Instant icply unnoticed In Iho box A varl.illon ot this dovlco Is now u ° od for calling the ntton- .tlon of postal clerks to the Incoming of special delivery Idlers The Invention , which Is credited to a former letter carrier , consists of a slanting box , at the lower end of which there Is n sheet of metal working on swivel Joints. When a letter IB dropped Irlo Iho box II slides down upon the metal sheet ami holds the lower cdgo down , thus making nn electric circuit Hint rlngi a bell con tinuously until somebody goes to the box nnd lots llio teller oul , which I done bj unhook ing nnd raising the front part of Die box.
