Can be conducted and make Itself visible In
These remarkable conclusions concerning
thought transTrdss'on are re tched by Prof.
Kottk, of Moscow, a pyr-hoKlst with a
European reputation, says the Chicago
Inter Ocein. tie publishes them In a

Ms conclusions are based on a girl 14
years old, daughter of a professional
thought reader, and her father. He chose
them because their minds are trained.
Kotlk'i audience was composed of the
members of the "Inner clinic" of Moscow
unlverdslty, who may be regarded as rx
VorU in fsjrohology. The girl's eyes were
carefully bandaged, her ers were Uuffed
with paraffin juid cotton-llteralltf, she
was blind and deaf for the time.
In the first experiment her father stood
on a hire wsider lour, he holding her
hand. She "read" quickly and accurately
all the words and short sentencts her
father presented to her while he held her
hand. The words urd sentences wre writ
ten by persons In the audience, and most
were In langUTges which neither father
nor daughter understood. A physician
wrote In Greek. The girl, her eyes bound
still, reproduced the Greek characters In
chalk on a blackboard.

puwer f r the geivrnt'or. of elcctrlrl'y s
furntshed by the recent closing of negotia
tions In Ceiads for a new transmission
line. It will start from Niagara, run west
ward to Dundas (fifty miles away), and
there divide Into thre branches. One will
extend to Toronto, a second by way of
Guilpli to Stratford,, and the third by way
or LondV.n to 8t. Thomas. Borne day the
list one may be cabled on to Windsor,
opposdtu Dotroll, but no such plan Is con
timplated at present. From the starting
point to the end of the longest branch the
distanre will be 170 miles. The whole sys
tem, now put under contract, hns a length
of 3i miles. The wires will be if alumi
num and will be carried on steel towers.
They are expected to convey 40,'10-horsepower,
to be supplied by rne of the Cana
dian corporations already doing business,
the Ontario Power company.
Tie notable feature of this Installation,
reports the New Yoik Tribune, is the high
pretmre UlO.OeO volts) at which it will
transmit the current. Whin the Industry
of ci'-vryirg power In the f rm of . !-c-tsli
ily t" a iv'nt remote fr .r.t the po'nt of
origin w-a In Its infancy, the limit of skill
and safety was L'.CiO volts. Electrical en
gineers knew that the higher the pressure
they used the smaller was the metallic
conductor which would serve their pur
poses. The feasibility of any project of the
kind depended largely on the cost of the
copter wire required, and there was seen
to be a point beyond which It would not
pay to employ It. Hence there was a dc
Flre to use the highest possible pressure,
and energetic efforts were made so to Im
prove Insulators that they w.-u!d not per
mit lenknge. U was comparatively easy
to raise voltages, but difficult to prevent
the escape of current when they had been
developed. Leakage hot only meant the
loss of power, but It threatened disastrous
accidents along the line.
Hy degrei s, however, remarkable gains
have been effected. In IsSS the first trans
mission line tram Niugara t Buffalo, em
ptying a voltage of 11,0(0. went Into opera
tion. The second between those points
began Its service In 191 wth a pressure
twice as great. Two years ago there were
tlx or eight lines In the world using a
voltage of ,or, and at least one carrying
TS.niiO volts. Some of the older lines in
California were designed to vcrk et "S.OnO
or 0 v l'r but the ever me: t lid n t
give perfect satis. action at first, and the
attempt was temporarily abandoned. A
Michigan company, which has supplied
Grand Rapids with a current of 72.000 volts
for about three years. Is said to have oper
ated a parallel line for the last few
months at lOO.OuO volts.
Wonderful as are these ad varices, they
have been largely inspired by the pioneer
work done at Niagara under the guidance
of scientific advisers of International repu
F.eonomr In Kleetrlc I.lnbtlns.
In nearly every house there are places
where eight candlepower. ot even four or
two candlepower could be substituted for
the sixteen candlepower lamps, thereby
effecting a great saving. The? small
candle power lamps give light enough for
closets, stairways, cellais, hallways, pan
tries and woodsheds, or storerooms.
Small inndlepower lamps have have the
double advantage of ssving the customer
money when In use and not costing hlrn
so much when accldently left burning. It
Is well enough to use tho new hish lower
lamps for reading or where a well lighted
room Is desired, but It Is safer for the
eyes and better for the p.e-ketbook to
use less brilliant lamps whele a great
amci nt of lluht la r.r.x m cesrary.
Hall lamps or porch lan ps w hich an.
kept burning should be of not more than
two or fjur candlepower. These lamps
give ample light for so small a space
and really cost less than kerosene. There
re numerous times In every home where
It Is desirous to burn a lamp all night.
In case of sickness a lighted lump
throughout the night Is quite essential.
ujo less brlllant lamps where a great
saving for this purpose.
When It Is realized that a sixteen
candlepower lamp uses 33H per cent more
current than a twelve candlepower, 87
per cent more than an eight candle power,
three times as much as a four candle
power, and five times as much as a two
candlepower lamp, the economical ad
vantage of the smaller sixes Is apparent.
If the householder who compalns about
the electric light bill from month to month
will obseive the following rules he will
find that the cost for lighting Ms home
Is, nothing unreasonable.
Don't waste light.
t'se the smallest candlepower lamp
which will do the work required.
Cse reflectors for close work.
Keep a fuw of the new metal filament
lamps on hand for use wh-re a large
amount of light Is required for any length
of time. Tin y will pay for themselves
many times over.
A blackened lamp means a dimmed light.
Throw It away. Paying for current to
operate a dim light la the height of
extravagance. One new lamp will often
give as much light as two old ones.
Don't spoil a good lamp by surrounding
It with a light killing shade. Many of
the ornamental shades are nothing m,e
or ess tbaji fancy Klass light-spong. s
which absorb most of the light rays.
Rooms finished in dark colors requlro
more light than rooms finished in llgot

An old Irishman named Casey made a
lot of money is a contractor und built a
fine house for his children.
The sons and daughters were much
ashamed of the pleliinn father, and Casey
was always kept In the rear of the house
when they had a party or a reception. One
day Casey died, and there was great to
do about It. The children had a fine coffin
with plenty of fluweis. and Casey was laid
In state In tlm paTlor.
That evening an old Irishwoman, who
had known Casey when he was a laborer,
cams and asked to see the face of her deaf
friend. They conducted her to the parlor.
She walked up to the coffin, took s, long
look, and said:
"Faith, Casey, an' they'vs let ys Into th'
parlor at lusht."
