My phonograph will occupy about
.as much space oa the merchant's
desk, or, ut the side of the desk, as
the type-writer does. It will work
automatically by u small electric
motor. Suppose the merchant wants
to write a letter; he pulls the mouthpiece of the phonograph to him,
starts the motor with a touch and
says what he has to say in an ordinary tone of voice. When he is
done he pulls out a little sheet and
rolls it up for the mail. The recipient places this sheet in a similar
phonograph,touches the motor spring
and the instrument will at once read
out the letter in atone more distinct,
clearer, more characteristic of the
voice of the writer than any telephone you or I ever heard. The
phonograph voice is not a very loud
voice, perhaps not more than twice
as loud as the sound you get from a
good telephone, and an earphone
will be necessary. In aiming for
loudness in the phonograph, I went
astray in my first experiment; I
should have tried for clearness. Of
course there are no disturbances in
the phonographic message such as
those made by induction along a telephone wire, and na the apparatus
will repeat the letter over again
it is possible to understand every
syllable, even in a noisy office. I
have forty workmen employed in
making the tools for the manufacture of tlie first lot of 500 phonographs. They will cost $60 apiece.
Now for some speculation as
as to what people may do with the
phonograph. I am confident that
it will be found in the office of every
busy man, I am confident that the
editor and reporter of the future will
never think of losing time by writing with a pen or dictating to the
stenographer when the printer can-
set type better from the dictation of
the phonograph than he can from
eopy. I have already perfected an
apparatus which allows the phonographic message to be given out in
pieces of ten words each. The printer touches a pedal with his foot and
the phonograph says ten words. If
he sets the ten correctly, he touches
the pedal again and gets ten words
more. If he is in doubt he tries another pedal, which makes the phonograph repeat. In the future some
method may be found of combining
the phonograph and telephone—
that is to say, the phonograph may
be made so delicate as to take down
the sound from a telephone and give
it out again when wanted. As yet
I have not attempted any such
thing. The vibrations of the telephone diaphragm are too delicate for
use in the phonograph. In business
I think the phonograph will be used
evorwhere. > Outside of business it
is hard to say exactly to what uses
it may be put. As it will record
and repeat any kind of musical
sound, and as the process of duplicating the phonogram, as I call my
sheet of metal which has passed
through the phonograph and become
impressed with certain sounds, is
very cheap, the phonogram copy of
a lecture, a book, a piny, or an opera
need cost but a trifle. For music
I know you will simply laugh when
I tell you what I have done with
the two instruments that I have finished. I have got the playing instruments of an orchestra so perfectly that eaoh instrument can be heard
distinct from the rest; you can even
tell the difference between two pianos of different makes; you can tell
thevoiceof onestranger from another;
you can get it reproduction of an
operatic scone in which tho orchestra, the choruses nud the soloists
will be as distinct and as satisfactory as opera in this sort of mina-
ture can ever be made. Opera by
telephone has been done in Paris nnd
London more or less successfully,
but the phonograph will eclipse the
telephone for this purpose beyond
all comparison, and phonographic
opera will cost nothing, because the
phonogram can lie passed through
the phonograph, if neeessary,a thousand times in succession, and once
the machine is bought there is no
other cost beyond the trifle for phonograms. For books the phonogram
will come in tho shape of a long
roll wound upon a roller. To make
the first phonographic copy of a
book some good reader must of
course read it out to the instrument;
once thnt is done, duplication to any
number of thousand or million copies is a simple mechanical work,carry
and cheap. Now just think a moment what that means,
BY TELEGRAPH.

Birous of landing iu the United State,

for that eulogj, I predict thlt tile
Plymouth pulpit will on thit diy be
ton hot to hold hiui, or, at least, if he

■«Haj Evening, Kev. ns, ism.
Our cotemporary of the News, in
his patronising way, expresses
pleasure at observing that the Columbian has been devoting attention
to the possibility of prune culture in
British Columbia, and assures us
that the "doubt" we have with respect to the success of such an enterprise in this province is groundless. Since wc expressed no doubt
at all on the subject, it was very
good of our cotemporary to givo that
assurance. On tho contrary, we
stated that 11,000 prune trees wero
■et out in one county of Washington Territory this year, and that if
prunes can be successfully grown
there they can be grown successfully
in British Columbia.
The trustees of Vancouver public
school are at loggerheads with their
head teacher, and seem to have resolved to discharge him. The trouble grew out 0. a severe punishment
administered by the teacher to one
of his pupils who had  been   misbe-
haring, and ..bo rebollod againot tho
teacher's executive authority. This
is the source of most of the disagreements which disturb the peace
of our pnblic schools. The question
of corporal punishment in public
schools has occupied much attention
among educationists, but thero is
yet considerable difference of opinion as to whethor it should be resorted to or uot. It is evident that,
if discipline is to be maintained at all,
the teacher must have power to punish those who defy his government.
For young children wo believe there
is no better means of commanding
obedience than the moral suasion of
the rod. It should be applied only
when absolutely necessary, but the
{tower to apply it should be abso-
utely in the hand of the teacher—
otherwise he will find himself powerless against a spirit of rebellion.
Corporal punishment ought never to
be inflicted in anger, The Vancouver teacher is said to have got into
a passion because of the conduct of
the boy whom he thrashed. Ii this
is true, he committed a grand mistake. Punishment indicted in anger
partakes too much of revenge, and
is sure to produce hatred and retaliation in the victim. It should be
held aa the. vindication of the law
simply, and as something that cannot be foregone without weakening
the law and the stability of school
government. Those who resort to
the rod injudiciously and in anger
are as far astray as those who ae
elare for the abolition of corporal
punishment entirely.
An item appeared in tho Columbian of Saturday with reference to
the association of highbinders existing among the Ohinese, and the
difficulty of bringing to justice any
person who ia under the protection
of that organization. Singularly
enough on the very same day a case
cam* before the court at Victoria
which shows not only the existence
of such an association, but also reveals some of its methods. Lam
Lop Fon, a Viotoria highbinder, was
brought before the court on a charge
of threatening'to murder Mr. Vroo-
raau-Gardeiicr, the Ohinese interpreter in the customs house, because that gentleman had been interesting himself in rescuing young
Ohinese girls from slavery and shame.
It il well known that numbers of
these girls are purchased in China
and sent out to this country, and
that they are kept in a state of perpetual slavery by tho persons to
whom they are consigned. Several
of these have been rescued by means
of the philanthropic people of Victoria; and placed in the house of
refuge, where they a:-e being taught
and cared for. Mr. Vroomun-
Oardener has interested himself in
this work, in which his knowledge
of tbe Chinese language and his experience with Ohinese customs have
made him a most valuable assistant.
For this " interference " of his, three
members of the highbinder association signed a letter threatening him
with death if he attempted again to
interfere with their arrangements.
It is for this threat that Fon is now
called to account. The threatening
letter was produced, and evidence
heard, resulting in the prisoner
being committed for trial at tho assize court. This is a case of more
than ordinary interest. The existence of a secret organization of tire
nature described is not in the interest of justice. Its purpose is to
set at defiance the administration of
law whenever it conflicts with the
arrangement of its members, and
there seems to be a determination
that the most violent measures shall
be resorted to, if necessary, when
law standi in the way of the secret
society. It is to be hoped some
means may be found to teach tho
highbinders that they cannot with
impunity set up a society of their
own in this country for the regulation of matters which fall within
reach of our own laws, and they
must particularly understand that
we will not permit them to resort to
auusinition for the accomplishment
of their purposes.

wields the sword, iho dajpor, the club,

Each did this to show that the hand was
empty and that neither war nor troach-ry
was InUmrled. A nnin cannot well stab
another while hu is tihi'-iged in the aet of
shaking hands with h.nr, unless he be a

strives to aim a cowardly blow with tho
left while givinj: thrr right nnd pretending to be on goo I term: wit'i liiin.
"Did you over ohsm-e I hit tho ladles
never skako bauds with tho cordiality
of nion unless it bu with each other?
Tho rcrrs.ru is o'vious. It is for thorn
to receive homer: ■, no) to give it. Thoy
cannot bo oxprfcu-d to s row to persons of
tbo orher sex a warmth of grueling which
might be nrisint'rpt'.ri -l unless such

"Every man shakes lrtinds according
to his nature, wart:: :>r it be timid or
aggressive, proud or humble, courteous
or churlish,1 vulgar or rclinod. There Is
certainly a great rut in llrmilshaking, but
I tell you the kin I of handshake I hato,'
nnd that is onu of the wnnt I call tbo
jolly gool fellow handshakes. Ono of
those follows will grasp your hand,
Biiuooze it until trio tears run down your
check and then,' '■.s'n-z your arm in tho
Kline maimer as a pniiiii handle, will go
on slinking ull tlie trim IfJ is talking to
you, letting it ns easy for' a moment or
bo, with tho exccp.ion of a littlo spasmodic shako now an I ngai.r,only, however,
to start it nfrcsir. Th.r lirst time you
imagine he is doing it because he is
extremely glad to sue you, but when you
seo him manifest the same cordiality
toward people whom bo met for the lirst
time and toward those with whom lie has
been Intimate for years you know ho is a
humbug or is, at any rate, acting from
habit. But oi all thu men to be avoided
the man who squeezes your hand in nn
excruciating ma.uir'r on a false pretense
is the worst. He dislocates your joints
to convince you that hu regards you
highly, and as soon as you are out of
sight forgets you or thinks that you are
no. 'great shakes1 after all or, worse still,
abuses you behind your bock.
"Another and even more odioua Und
of handshaker is he who offers you his
hand, but will not permit you to get fair
hold of it. To bo treated with cool contempt of supercilious scorn which such a
mode of salutation implies is worse than
not to bu saluted at nil. If hands are to
be shaken let - it be done properly.
Another species of handshaker I detest
is the man who oilers vou one finger instead of five, as much aa to say, I am
cither too preoccupied myself or think
too little of you to givo you my whole
hand. With such n man the interchange
of any but the barest and scantiest
courtesy is rendered dilllr'iilt by any one
who has a particl" of self-f sport,
"Yet nnothor objection iblc man is tho
one that shoves out his left hand In greeting you. Thnt is discourteous, sometimes
intentional and sometimes not, but it is
nn act that no true gentleman would
commit There is really no reason why
it should be moro discourteous than to
kiss the left cheek instead of the right,
but doubtless the custom that makes the
right hand imperative in all sincere salutations dates from those early times when
handshaking first began, and the hand
that shook or was ahaken in friendship
was of necessity weaponless. The poor
left hand that one would think ought to
be of as much value and strength as the
right, just as the left foot or leg is as
strong as the right foot or leg, because
they aro both used equal, has fallen into
disrepute aa well as into comparative disuse, until it has become an accepted
phrase to say of any proceedings that ia
inauspicious, artful, sly or secretly malicious, that it ia 'sinister'—that it ia left
handed. ''
"I do not," he continued, "object to
shake hands on certain occasions, bnt it
is this perpetual 'shake, shake,' with
everybody that I object to. It is pleas-
nut to touch the hand of an honest man
or woman, and to be on such terms of
acquaintanceship with either of these
masterpieces of creation as to justify you
in the. thought that you are their equal.
Even to grasp the paw of an intelligent
dog, who holds it lip for you to shake on
being asked to do so, is something pleas-
ant. For the dog, unlike some men,
would acorn to give his paw to one in
whose eye and in whose face he, by hla
fino instinct, in some reapept the equal if
not the superior of reason, discovered
treachery or evil. As I have said, it is
the continued handskaking with Tom,
Dick and Harry Wat ought to bt put»
■top to.

HAIRS ON PLANTS.
How ther Serve ln Mnny Ways as a Help
and Protection.
The surface of many plants is covered
with hairs. These hairs are usually
slender outgrowths of tho epidermal
cells, and may consist of rows of cells
placed end to ond. The end cell may bu
sharp pointed or consist of a nearly spherical body. Many of tbe hairs branch so
as to give tho plant a wooly or folt like
covering. Some plants have stiff hairs
with sharp, hooked points and these are
easily broken off, after which an irritating fluid may How out. Of such are the
hairs upon the nettles.
Thu structureof tbe hairs upon plants
Is so various that it is natural for any onu
to inquiro as to the uso of these surface
outgrowths. When we look' at tho buds
which are formed in the autumn, and
hnve the future young branches as their
vital parts within, it is found that tho
scales are thick and often covered with a
dense growth of hairs. Over it all there
may be a coat of varnish whicli serves to
keep out the moisture. It iB not difficult
to see that in such casus tho hairs serve
as a protection. In short they help to
keep the young inclosed tender parts
from without, in much the same way
that the hair upon the animal bodies is a
protection against cold and other external
trying circumstances.
In like manner the hairiness of ordinary leaves and stems may aid in protecting the plants that bear them. These
hairs form a layer through whicli tho
liquids of the plants do not readily pass.
This may be of great advantage, and it
is a matter of general observation that
plants which are at home in an arid situation most abound in hairiness. Thus
the grasoss and even shrubs of the dry
plains of this country are characteristically light colored, due to the multitude
of hairs that cover the surface. This
rule is so well observed that an expert
may easily claim the ability to determine
the natural habitat of a plant by noting
the nature of its epidermis.
It is true that the hairy covering may
serve to protect the plant from animals
which would otherwise feed upon, and
possibly destroy it. Iu such coses the
hail's are often large and stiff, and become disagreeable to the palate of tho
animal. But, however this may bo, tho
chief uses of the hairs of the arrial parts
of plants Is to mitigate the sudden changes
of temperature, and act as a check to
rapid transpiration of moisture.
Whon we go below the surface of tho
soil the plan changes, and then the plants
aro provided with Dans for the purpose of
increasing the absorbing surface exposed
to tho food-bearing particles of soil.
These root hairs, as they are termed, aro
most abundant upon the young fibrils,
and therefore are located wliere tho surrounding circumstances are most favorable for the rapid taking up and quick
transmission of the soil water.
Hairs servu many special purposes, as
for example In the flowers, where they
may form structures which materially
aid in the cross-fertilization of plants
through the visitation of insects.
Hints on Swimming.
It is a trite bit of advice that everybody
who doesn't know how to swim should
learn, but the advico is worth being insisted on. The school children of Loudon
are taught to swim, one afternoon in each
week being devoted to that purpose, and
the art should be a feature of our schools;
but for those persons who cannot swim
and will not make tbe effort to learn, a
few bintson the subject from un exchange
may prove of extreme value, especially in
this season of rowing, sailing, fishing and
bathing:
It is, unfortunately, not generally
known that a finger laid upon an oar, or
the gunwbale of an overturning boat, or
a board, or almost any floating object,
will sustain the human body in calm
water, Persons who have been properly
taught, and have acquired the habit of
acting with self-possession in the water
when they are upset, do not attempt to
climb upon the overturned boat, but
simply take hold of it aud quietly support themselves. A boat half-tilled witii
water, or completely overturned, will
support as many persons as can get their
hands upon the gunwale if they behave
quietly.

"It Saved My Life"
Is a eommon expression, often heard
Irom those who have realized, hy personal use, the curative powers of Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. •* I cannot say enough
In praise ol Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, believing as I do that, but ior its use, I
should long since have died from lung
troubles.—!!. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About six montbs ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me ol sleep ana rest. I had used vart.
ous cough balsams ahd expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A Mend advised me to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to Say that lt
helped me at once. By continued use
this medicine cured my cough, and, I
am satisfled, saved my life.—Mrs. B.
Coburn, 18 Second st., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
for over a year, and sincerely believe I
should have been ln my grave, had lt
not heen for this medicine. It has cured
me of a dangerous affectiorwrf the lungs,
for which I had almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—D, A, McMullcn,

Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved my life.
Two years ago I took a very severe Cold
which settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took the remedies they
prescribed, bnt failed to obtain relief
until I began using Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Two bottles of this medicine
eompletely restored my health.—Lizzie

"The commissioner is much interested

Alaska, and recommends the colony to
the protection and care of the United

This morning about C o'clock the
steamer Gladys while lying at her
wharf keeled over and sank. The only
persons on board at the time were
the deck-hands and a Chinese cook,
and they had just time ennugh to
jump ashore in order lo lave a wetting. The cook was getting breakfast
reidy at the time the steamer sank,
and up to the moment she began to
sway from one side to the other, there
was no intimation that anything unusual was wrong. Wheu the accident
was reported to Mr. Townsend he im -
mediately telegraphed to tho government agent, at Victoria for permission to allow the Snogboit Samson to
assist in raising the Gladys. Iu tho
course of a couple of hours a tolegram
arrived, giving permission, and Capt.
Grunt took the Samson to the wreck
and commenced operations. From the
pOHsiliun the steamer lies in, it is impossible to determine^he cause of the
disaster, hut the general opinion is
she sprung a leak or started a plank
and went down almost immediately afterwards. On Harrison
river yesterday morning the Gladys
cut hor way through ice,an inch thick,
for some little distance, which may have
been the ultimate came of the sinking.
Up to the time of going to press tho
efforts to raise her had not been successful, but it ia expected she will be
beached safely to-morrow.
