WORKER OF WONDER. THIE MARVELLOUS INVENTIONS OF R. E. HOUSE. Sending Roman Characters by Telegraph Has Marked Hlis Debut in the Electrl cal World - His Automatic Sound System. HE- scientific achievements of Royal E. House, whose death has just been recorded, occupy a prominent 1 place in the galelry of invention. Born in Rockingham, Vermont, Sept. 9, 1914, he removed, while yet young, with his parents to Choconut, a small hamlet in Susque hanna county, Pennsylvania, a point farther remote from civilization at that date than is Alaska today. His inven tive talent first manifested itself in the construction of a submerged water wheel for a saw mill, which embodied a principle since used in many forms, and known as the "scroll wheel." Early in the forties he went to Buffalo, N. Y., with the design of studying law with a relative of his family residing there, but having gained access to a limited number of scientific books, he became interested in electrical re searches, and these soon ...

CIIAPTEii IIL. THE GREAT NIGHT SCHOOL OF ORETOWN. Mr. Commissioner Eaton, in his elab orate reports from the Washington bureau of education, condescended not to notice the night school of Oretown. Yet here was a great and curious factor in the educational elements of the coun try. Inside the gaunt building were gath ered some hundred miners, chiefly Eng lish and Swedes, with here and there a native American. They were formed into classes, some spelling in ponder ous earnestness easy words, some wrest ling manfully with the mysteries of arithmetic, some laboriously poring over the page of a primer, and some compelling their unpliant fingers to guide a pen over the mazy page of a child's copybook, but all strangely and sternly in earnest. Eight or ten teachers were scattered around the room. They were miners, who haid little learning, or who had themselves bcen pupils of the school. One was exceptional. He was a broad-shouldered, strong, athletic fellow, better dressed than the "ME AN...

FELIOGRAPHIC CHAT. MESSAGES FROM COLUMBIA TO MEXICO. White-Cowled Mountains as Stations from Which the Flash-Light Signals Will Be Transmitted-New Use for the Sun's Rays (Chicago Correspondence.) T REGULAR IN tervals the world is informed that Edi son, the "wizard of : '. - , Menlo park," and Eesla, the brilliant young inventor, / whose many scien tific discoveries have startled and "./ delighted mankind, C are at work on the problem of tele graphing without the use of wires. "Impossible!" is the first mental ex clamation, and then, "Nothing is impos sible with such men," is the thought that forces itself upon the mind and finds an abiding place. While the pub lic is patiently waiting for the coveted invention the fact is apparently for gotten that telegraphy without wires is already an accomplished fact, conse quently considerable interest will at tach to the preparation now being made for the transmission, July 10, of a mes sage from Mount Nelson, British Colum bia, to Mexico, a d...

PLAY BY AMATEUIRS. TANTON WAS all agog over the amateur theatricals that were to be given for sweet charity's sake. The / young people were deeply interested. Those who were not actually in the performance had helped along its progress by lend ing parts of costumes or suggesting new poses for the tableaux. The "show," as it was generally called, was to include a one-act comedy, several living pictures and a minuet. "Of course the living pictures will all have plenty of clothes on 'em, ex plained pretty Nell Gray, who was gen eral manager and director of the affair. "We shall have Romeo and Juliet, Pygmalion and Galatea, Orpheus and Eurydice and many Mother Goose pictures. In the latter I'm going to have the children-and, oh! dear, I'm so busy." And she trotted away to attend a rehearsal. At the hall she found nearly all the performers gathered and merry arguments were going on as to how certain parts were to be played. The girls were nearly all talking of cos tumes and the men were ...

A TAINTED REASON. Y POOR CHILD, there is insanity in your husband's veins; you should have been told of it before you married him." Good Dr. Ains worth spoke the words kindly, even tenderly, to the dis tracted wife, for he had known Nettle all his life and sympathized deeply in her sorrows. "Oh, it is horrible! Horrible!" the young wife cried in tones of agony. "To think that I should have been deceived until I loved him so desperately! Tell me, doctor," she asked a little more calmly, "what form of insanity do you call it, and can this thing, this mat ter of which I spoke, have anything to do With his condition." Dr. Ainsworth looked sad and grave In a minute. "His father hung himself at the age of 43," he answered slowly, "and the cause of his action, I am told, was the sudden hatred which he acquired for his wife, your husband's mother." Young Mrs. Rayrnond turned as pale as death. "Will my husband ever hate me, do you think, Dr. Ainsworth, and because of the matter on which I ha...

bNE NIGHT'S ALARM. OME YEARS AGO SI was traveling ;through the west Sern part of Iowa. thinly settled, and "toward the close of a warm June day I !began to think that I had entered an in terminable prairie, when I saw against the horizon a soli tary house. It was dusk before I reached it, and of course I desired to obtain accomodations for the night. Hospitalitythen was readily granted to the stranger. I was even welcomed with effusion by a grave, gray-bearded man who appeared as soon as the sound of my wheels came to his ears. His household seemingly comprised four persons beside himself--his wife, a son, a daughter, and a maid-servant. I was almost confounded by the beauty of the daughter. Youth, grace and thought gave additional charms to a face and form classically perfect. I no ticed, however, that there was deep melancholy in her expression. We all repaired to the sitting-room and there the ladies shortly left us. I turned my attention to father and son. The latter was about t...

He was not straitl-laced in his opinions nor in any way puritanical, mut, the utter dis regard of that hay of Rest he had from childhood been accustomed to observe jarred his feelings strangely. The city was 'runi.ig fIn1l blast." Theaters. concert-halls, "dlives" of every descrip tion were open to the public, who seemed bent upon taking every advan tage of enjo.yment they offered.
