Invents Electric Light After
He Stubs His Toe on a
Dark Crossing.
law or snuff recited
, By A. R. GROH.
From Mrs. Gladys Matoush, 556
Meredith avenue, Gregory, S. D.t
comes a request that I write up
Thomas A. Edison, his early life
and scientific achievements."
'I am glad to get this request and
shall direct upon Mr. Edison the
searchlight of my wisdom.
1 Thomas Alva Edison was born in
1847 in Ohio, U. S. A. While he was
a small boy people did not know that
some day he would become the great
est inventor in the world. One sum
mer evening, while out walking, he
came to a dusty place at a crossing
and. as it was dark, he got his shoes
all dusty. . ' ,
The boy decided then that some
day. he would invent the electric
ll8Timelwent on. He finally got a
job as newsboy on the Grand Trunk
railway and before long he was a
telegraph operator. He invented
' things that saved the telegraph com
panies millions of dollars and every
once in a while they would raise his
pay $5 a month.
Becomes a Wizard.
; Soon he started out in business for
himself as an inventor and rapidly
became the great "wizard" that he is
todav. We could never hear "Cohen
at the Telephone" or the Fifteenth
Bulgarian Rhapsody in B or any of
the other classics on the phonograph
if Edison had remained telegraph
operator, fo he invented the phono
grapht He also invented the in
candescent light.
I saw Mr. Edison once. However,
I do not think he remembers me. Tt
was in a large crowd of about 10,000
people and he may ot even have
tern me. If you should desire a
fuller biography of Mr. Edison you
may be able to find it at the library.
.A great legal question is presented
for my decision by John Klaseus,
Creighton law student, who ad
dresses me as "America's greatest
phrenologist" and says h would ap
point me judge if he had the ap
pointive power.
"Your first ease," he writes, "will
be to decide the legality of a law
which 'forbids the importation, sell
ing of giving away of snuff or any
of Its substitutes.' " ,
. I Wants the Law.
He further Informs me that I will
find a case of this in 144 Northwest
ern Reporter, page 661, at -the Doug
las county law library.
All right, John, call the court to
order, f have looked up the case you
mention. State vs. Olson. This case
has to do with a South Dakota law
and it defines Snuff as "any tobacco
that has been fermented, dried, fla
vored, pulveriied, cut, scented or
Otherwise treated." '- ' ' ' ' '
In view of this, of course, and bas
ing my construction of the "quid"
pro nullus a priori and taking into
consideration the court's decision in
the similar case of State vs. Schnit
telbaumer (171 Illinois Territory,
page, 3,694), as well as the case hav
ing similar bearing though Somewhat
more t pluribus unum and therefore
ex , parte vobiscum, State vs.
Srbjrinklvetmotski (974 Oregon,
page 1,753), the court holds that
snuff, being tobacco non vult and the
statute in this case providing that if
not it should stand semper idem, the
court so decides, fixing the costs on
the plaintiff.
Remember also, John, that you can
be an upright man and good citizen
even though you are a lawyer. Yes,
indeed. . '
Two Autos Collide On
' ' North Side Boulevard
Three young men of prominent
families in a racing automobile mirac
ulously escaped injury when the car
they were in was rammed on the side
and turned completely over by an
other high powered car on the Flor
ence boulevard at Boyd street shortly
after midnight. The occupant, of the
overturned car were Dr. James O'Neil,
2607 Bristol street; Albert Meneray,
secretary-treasurer of the Omaha
Nursery company, and T. Iforris of
Benson.- A. L. Rose was the driver
and only occupant of the other car.
According to Dr. O'Neil, both cars
were going at a moderate rate of
speed north on the boulevard. Rose
was in the lead. Suddently Rose
turned off to the left and .'. other
car, in trying to veer out of the path,
was struck squarely on the side, turn
ing completely over. The windshields
of both cars were completely mashed
and both cars wrecked. Outside of a
bad shaking up, the occup. tits of
neither car receive! a scratch.
The overturned car belong to Albert

sieh is the ship which, since Decem
ber 15, has housed alt the entente le
gations accredited to King Constan
tine, save the Italian mission. A small
boat, once a tacht, it is a far from
comfortable dwelling for so many
diplomatists and their families.
The various cabins have signs on
them indicating that one or the other
is the British, French, Serbian, Bel
gian, Russian or Roumanian lcga
tipn. The main saloon at meal times
is a common dining room as interna
tional in character as that of any
Swiss hotel in the tourist season. By
dint of Ions, enforced residence at
close quarters, some of the little nice

French, the common diplomatic
tongue, is here solely the language
of the French. Each group sticks

Reading a Thankless Task,
After the common -breakfast, the
tables are cleared and the reading
of the Athenian morning papers is
the order of the day a task usually
falling to Mr. Filidor, the Roumanian
minister, the readiest translator from
Greek. The task is' rather a thank
less one, as the Athenian newspapers
have little good to say oi the entente

are generally of similar tenor, albeit
from the other side. The news of
the day digested, there is the first
conference and discussion on the
day's program. Once the conference
adjourned, the legations separate,
each to occupy a set of tables of its
own for its work when there is any
to do. ,
The British and French legations
are the busy ones. The Roumanian
minister, almost entirely cut off from
his government, of whose seat he
is never quite sure, is a forlorn fig
ure, pacing the deck while his col
leagues labor. The Russian minister
is somewhat busier, especially since
he acts as his own cook. The Serbian
minister disappears frequently, quietly
slipping ashore and making his way
to Athens, to return only late in the
evening, spending the night aboard
as a pure matter of form.
Runs His Own Typewriter.
At one table Sir Francis Elliot, the
British minister in shirt sleeves is
tapping the typewriter himself, at
another one of his secretaries is lost
among the maze of papers that with
every roll of the ship slip to the
floor. Nearby at another table two
other British secretaries are playing
chess. In a corner four of the diplo
matic ladies have organized a day
long game of bridge. The Belgian
charge watches the bridge, sadly, his
thoughts far away on the sand
dunes that are all that remains of
his native land.
On the opposite side of the cabin,
Jean Guillemin, the French minister
holds sway. Nervous and restless, he
is constantly up and down, rushing
back and forth from his cabin or
breaking in on his British colleague
who listens to comment or discussion
impassive, returning to poking one
finger of each hand at the typewriter
keys when the storm has passed. Cap
tain de Roquefeuille, the French naval
attache, hurries in with the latest re
ports from the Athenian cafes, filled
with the lurid color characteristic of
the Orient. The eager French gather
about to drink them in, with many

Invention by Which the
Blind Are Able to Read
Correapondence of The AMOcl&ted Prew.)
London, March 6. At the Roetgen
Ray society's February meeting Prof.
Fournier d'Albe demonstrated an in
strument whereby, with . practice,
blind persons are enabled to read
ordinary print by sound. The instru
ment depends upon an application of
selenium, and is a development of an
instrument which Prof. d'Albe used
four years ago to enable sightless
persons to locate bright lights or
brightly luminous patches by means
of the ear and to discover shadows
intercepting the light. In this case
the light shining upon the silenium
arms of the machine caused certain in
terruptions or changes in the electric
current passing through them, which
were translated into sounds by means
of a telephonic contrivance. The
later apparatus is a more delicate
adaption of the same idea.
A small, revolving perforated disk
is illuminated by a half-watt lamp,
and the image of a line of luminous
dots, furnished by the rvovling disk,
is projected upon the type to be read.
The light thus reflected from the type
is passed to a set of silenium bridges
conncted by a telephone relay, and
sound corresponding to the various
letters of the type are carried to the
receiver. Each letver of the printed
matter, as it passes over the small
aperture in the slab, gives a different
sound effect from any other latter,
and with practice a blind person can
recognize these distinctive sounds.
This sound alphabet, of course, has
to be learned, but with practice the
line of type can be moved across the
aperture at the rate of several words
a minute, and the sense becomes in
telligible to the reader, or hearer.

Russia Will Become
Definite Force in
War, Says Milukoff
. London, March 26. Foreign Min
ister Milukoff has outlined the atti
tude of the new Russian government
in foreign affairs to a number of Pe-
trograd and Moscow journalists. A
Reuter dispatch from Petrograd
quotes the foreign minister as say
ing: "We shall remain faithful to all past
alliances similar to that with our al
lies, which would still further be
strengthened and become still more
cordial and sincere. The change in
regime will disperse the distrust our
allies had a right to feel toward the
late government It is Russia's duty
to continue the struggle brilliantly,
both for its own liberty and that of all
"By the change in regime we defi
nitely won the sympathy of neutrals,
especially Sweden, while Finland,
thanks to the restoration ot its con
stitution, has become our sincere
friend. Our allies came into touch
with the new regime without an in
stant's delay, understanding that the
old regime was a religious hindrance
to that organization of the Russian
people which is necessary for a final

w;ight in the coalition of allies. It
is a productive force. Henceforth all
rumors of a separate peace must van

national for freed Russia to come to
