Monday morning we thrcfw open the doors on our great January event the annual carnival and sale Mnslln Undergarments, Embroideries and white
good of every description.
lO.OOO plce.n of the daintiest and mont beautiful muslin garments fresh from the factories; every piece new, crisp and of immaculate snowlneas In
the trvntct wile ever planned by the llennett Htore.
We lionght these garments much below the regular, many months ago, vhen the cotton market took a slump and when eastern manufacturers
were clamoring for orders to keep factories and operatives busy. Kvery garment in the sale Is a model of exactness with better maUiriaK better needle
work, more elaborate trimming, daintier laces and embroideries titan could possibly be turned out heretofore at these prices. Beside, the styles are
newer and every garment is cut wide and full no skimping anywhere.
See the great store transformed Into a fairyland of white. See the great white window front. See the "great white way" of bargain tables of em
broideries and laces down the main aisle. Don't overlook the sheets, muslins and linens and white dress goods. A veritable carnival of bargains. At
no other time are such bargains possible. Come.

PA1U3, Jan. 9. (Special.) If the hopes of
Georges and Oustave Laudet, two French
avants. are realised the world at Urge
wilt eoon be Introduced to several startling
vneatloaa. For Inatanee, we are confi
dently promised.' as tho reeult of their re
markable discoveries in word photography
and the reproduction of the human voice
by means of exploalves, that we shall
khortly be listening to rocket which, at
they ahoot into the air and light up the
klek by their brilliant colors, will sing
"Tho Star Spangf.-d Banner," or "Yankee
Doodle." Another result. It "is said, will be
the disappearance of all local defects In
speech. Including, of course, the American
twang, and hastening the coming of the
millennium when the Yankee will be able
to make himself understood to a coikney
without the aid of an Interpreter learned
in the vernacular of each.
In days to come the discovery will de
velop out of all recognition, as an election
eering agent, the gramophone of which
Messrs. Tafi and Bryan have made such
effective use during the last few months.
Speeches will then be communicated to
mighty crowds far beyond the reach of the
votca of even the "silver-tongued orator."
AliHwl to ta jpetard it wUi warn a. tram
that "the line la blocked;" detonation fuses,
under the action of heat, can Inform a care
taker thut a fire hue broken out In a dis
tant part of the premises he has been Bet
to watch; and. finally, the speaking ex
plosive might conceivably be used in war
fare as a word of command.
Result by Gas Explosions.
Georges l.audet's first discovery with re
gard to the reconduction of sound was in
and was obtained by the combustion
of detonating gaseous mixtures. A detonat
ing gaseous mixture la burned in a special
burner, the portions In a state of combus
tion being constantly proportional to the
curves representing the Bounds spoken into
the apparatus. The gus, as It burns, repro
duces faithfully the sounds uttvred. These
results are obtained by the aid of special
apparatus and "were communicated in 1!W6
to the Academy of Science. The invention
reproduces all sounds, of whatever nature
they may be, whether sung or spoken, with
an Intensity equal to eight or ten times
that of ordinary speech. This intensity, as
also the power of the apparatus, may be
magnified by Increasing the pressure of the
detonating mixture or Us composition. The
apparatus employed varies according as you
wish to magnify the direct voice or repro
duce it by taking as the starting point a
gramophone or phonograph disc.
For Instance, If it la desired to reproduce
a speech many times over, It must he reg
istered first of all on a gramophone plate,
which is then applied to the magnifying ap
paratus. If, on the other hand. It la merely
desired to deliver the speech once, all that
is necessary is to speuk it directly Into tho
apparatus, which reproduces It, magnified
eight to ten-fold, without the leaat deform
ation. laveatloa Already Applied.
The Invention has already received a
practical application. In certain theaters
a combination of the cinematograph and
gramophone, may be teen, in which the
actor no longer makes hla appearance in
dumb show, but sings as well. As the
gramophone Is not powerful enough to be
heard all over a hall, Georges Iudet has
applied to it his discovery of the reproduc
tion of sounds by detonating gaseous ml
tures. The success thus obtained with regard to
detonating gases started the brothers along
a fresh path of research. Would It not be
posKible, they asked themselves, to apply
these same principles to the reconstruction
of sounds by fireworks and explosives? In
order to grapple successfully with this new
question, it was first of all lndispensible
to obtain the curves represontlng the suunds
which they proposed to reconstruct. For
some time, therefore, they devoted all their
efforts to photographing sonorous vibra
tions. Speech Already Photographed.
They wore not the first in the field.
Human speech had already been photo
graphed. Dr. Uurage had succeeded In pho
tographing it by using microphone currents
as a medium, but this medium Is very
faulty, for it Introduces deformations into
the curves and thus renders abortive any
attempt to secure absolute accuracy. It is
impossible to obtain with It the niceties
and shades of utterance. An illustration of
this deformation Is found In the mutilation
which the voice undergoes in speaking over
the telephone, especially In the sibilant or
i.lsslug consonants, s. ch, x. f. The brothers
Laudet have now succeeded In obtaining
word photographs by a direct mechanical
process, without the medium of the micro
phone. This process is for the present kept
secret and only the results obtained have
been communicated to the Academy of
Bclence, without any details as to the ap
paratus, as they contemplate applying it to
various Industrial purposes.
By the aid of -their apparatus the Laudets
have photographed human speech without
tho slightest deformation. They have ob
tained photographs of entire sentences with
absolute fidelity. A careful study of these
photographs has enabled thum to draw
aome Important conclusions regarding the
general phenomena of )honation; the mech
anism of the formation of vowels and con
sonants, the Influence of pitch, etc.
Show Defects of Speech.
Their photographs are so sensitive as to
show the differences In the articulation of
different people, so that it Is possible to
study the causes of speech deformation and
defects. As an Illustration of the nicetv
and precision of the apparatus. It may bo
explained that In certain sentences It Is
possible to detect the slightest lisp and
breath. In Gustave Laudet's own words:
"When the mechanical parts which serve
as the registering medium are displaced
under the action of the sounds by Infinitely
small quantities, these movements are per
fectly reproduced on the photographic plate.
Thus we have been able to photograph cer
tain of these vibrations the magnitude of
which did not exceed one-flfty-thousandetb
of a millimeter!"
The Laudets call attention to an Import
ant consequence of their observations, al
though the study of the curves is far from
being terminated. "The photographs of
vowels, a, e, I, o, u, vowels sustslned on a
particular note, present successive periods
Identical among themselves," said Gustae
Laudet. "Such curves are, however, only
obtained In registering song or alow con
versations without Intonation.
Vowel Carve Xot Identical.
"The registering ut an ordinary conver
sation, on the other hand. Indicates thut
the successive jx-rloiTg of the -curve of any
vowel whatever are not Identical among
themselvs. All the time that the vowels
are being pronounced they undergo contin
ual modifications arising from the variation
in volume of one or more of the composing
harmonics, be tt from the disappearance or
reappearance of certain of these harmonics.
"In a running conversation the different
organs forming and modifying the resonant
capacities are constantly in movement; the
result Is their continual modification,
whence arises also an equally continuul
variation of the harmonics.
"As an illustration, we have taken from
a phrase at random a word of two syllables
and have considerably enlarged It; the del
icacy of our tracings has allowed us to re
duce considerably the horizontal scale, so
as to render more apparent these continual
modifications of vowels, the reappearance
of accessory sounds and of different har
monics which have become graphically
visible.
"The curves of sound thus registered will
render It possible to analyse more easily the
phenomena of phonation, both from the
physiological point of view, as well as from
the mathematical."
Boon to Voice Specialists.
One of the Immediate results of this dis
covery will be the services It can render
to professors of diction and to specialists
when called upon to diagnose diseases,
malformation ar.d peculiarities of the
organs of the mouth and throat. In cor
recting peculiarities of pronunciation, such,
for Instance, as those of a Frenchman
from the south of France, of a Itreton,
of an Alsatian, as compared with the
recognized standard; or those of an Irish
man or Scotchman as compared with the
standard of pure English; the professor
of diction will find his task greatly facili
tated by being able to confront his pupils
with the photographic proof of the peculiar
ities he seeks to correct.
The success which has attended their ef
fort along thU line of research has been
so decisive that the problem of the re
construction of sound by means of fire
works and explosive matter is now assured
and will shortly form the subject of a
fresh and sensational communication to
the Academy of Science.
1 have endeavored U sketch In the fore
going suggestion soma of the ue to
which Messrs. Laudet think of applying
their Invention,
Value to rhyslctata.
Physiologists and physicists will cartainly
make use of Messrs. Laudota' discoveries
in the registration of speech and sound
either for the confirmation or the modifica
tion of their theories. Take, for Instance,
Helmholtz's theories on phonation. Accord
ing to Helmholts each vnwrl Is character
ized by one or more fundamental harmonic
Independent of the pitch on which the
vowel has been emitted. The investiga
tions which Messrs. Iaudet have mad Into
this theory by the aid of their photograph
Justify them In disputing its accuracy.
It is, however, especially manufacturer
and tradesmen who are watching these
discoveries with Interest, for the applica
tion of them to industry bids fair to furnish
them with fresh outlets for their commer
cial activity.
George and QuHtave Laudet seemed pre
destined to become inventors, for their
father. Georges laudet, was a mechanical
engineer of considerable reputation. Among
bis numerous Invention was that f the
team crane In HwO. Ten years later he
Invented a machine for extracting huge
block of stone from quarries and reducing
them automatically to paving stones
Numerous model of hi various Invention
am still exhibited at the Conservatoire
Natlonul des Arts et Metier In Paris.
Specialist la Aooastloa.
M. Georges Laudet. his son, became a
civil engineer, and devoted himself abov
all to the tudy of electricity and me
chanics. For tlui last eight years he hnu
specialised In acoustic, sacking to re
corbtruct and amplify sound. The result
he has obtained In i that relatively short
space of time are truly astonishing,
M. Gustave Laudet I also an engine n
of the School of Physic and Chemistry,
where be was a pupil if Prof. Curie, whos
name ii forever connected with riidium
and who tragic death Is still in every
one's memory. Curio whs worshiped by
hla pupils, who looked upon him as u de.ir
friend rather than a professor. A Hula
anecdote illustrative of this great scleiillnfs
modosty la too good to be omitted here.
"At a Uin when Uin whole civilized world
wa ringing with Curie's funic," said M.
Gustave Laudet to me. "I met Mm on
bunday up by the Avenue do l'Ubserva
tolre. lie wa wheeling tho perambulator
in which was his first born baby and hi
wife wa hauling on 1 Is urm. They looked
Just like a couplu of bourgeois uut for
their Sunday walk." Mine. Curie, whose
modesty equals that of her husband, has
tukfn the lamented professor's place at the
College do France and is carrying on h;l
work of research.
