TCickola Teela has solved the problem which he set before himself many years •go, and -which may revolutionize the system of cleuiric lighting 1 . It is, eleo trlcai experts say, the nearest perfec adaption of the ffroat force of nature to the use of man. In Mr. Tesln's lab oratory, in Houston street, is a bulb no more than threo Inches In length which, when tie current t»rns into it, becomes n bulb of light. With it a. verj large room is so lighted that it is pos sible to read in nny corner. Yet this U done without flues (md without attachments necessary in existing lights. TJ.u. rays are so strong that the Kharpes photographs may be taken by them No new dynamo is required to produce the current. There is no clanger of harmful shoe-tain its use. Stories have come from time to time from M r. Tesla's laboratory that he was experimenting on a light o£ tins sort Humors of success and failure have followed each other find Mr. Tesla's friendb were inclined to doubt that he wouk" succeed. A half-dozen times the discovery was nt his finger tips, only to elude" him. But now he has told his friends of'his success. Mr. Tesla has been working for many years on his theory of the necessity and the ]inicticnbi!ity of the conversion of cU-cUicity. The present incandescent light gives only I! per cent, of illuminating power. The other 07 per cent, is wasted in heat. In accordance with his theories, which have been already applied successfully to the economical transmission of the electric fluid, be applied himself to the saving- of pome of this wasted energy in ele-.tric light. The bulb which lie has perfected gives 10 per cent of lighu and loses 'JO per cent, of energy. Mr. Tesla dcclnrcs that he will, with the aid of a few more experiments, be able to'produce-10 per cent, of light, so that tlie waste will be reduced to only W per cent. The principle of light is vibration. The illumination is secured by tiic vibration of what Mr. Tesla. cnJIs a vibrator within a. bulb, which holds the vibrating needle within a vacuum. The need It? vi brutes BO rapidly that tL-o figures per second tsound imaginary, but it is Hi is in tensity of eiiei'g-ywliicL gives the light its brilliancy and its apparent steadiness. The lights 110 not h.-ive to be renewed. Friends who recently visited Mr. Tcsla saw him photographed by means of his light. The exposure was but two seconds in'the light of o single vacuum tube or bulb without electrodes, having- a, Tolume of nbont 00 cubic inches. The light, given was approxin.ir.tcly 2iO candle power. The photograph was as sharp '" outlines as though it were taken in full sunlight- Mr. Tesla has recently obtained many photographs in his study of the Koentgen ray. He has photographed the heart of one of his assistants so accurately njs to Hole its expansions and its contractions, and ho has also been able to locate defects in the lung? of several persons. COULDN'T PASS AS AN INDIAN. Colored MUD'S Schcino to De:it n Railroad Failed Him. A few-days ago a colored njan named James wa.s desirous of reaching- the coast, but not having the price of transportation devised «. sdieme, through a hint from a friend, of boating the rafl- roiid coropMiy. His friend told him to disguise himself n.s an Italian by putting a blimkct over his head and body in the same fashion as the noble red ma-n doc-s and geton the platform of apast-cnger.traJD, and that he would then be able to make the journey at littleexponsc. The colored man did as advised, and everything went along very smoothly until he reached Glen's Ferry, in Idaho, says the Cheyenne Leader, whore an eagle-eyed brakeraau discovered that the [ndian impersonator had oa a pair of Baiters showing a very fine gloss, Knowing that nil true Indians wore moccasins tlie brnkeroan thought some- tiling was wrong and investigated tie matter, when the fraud wns discovered ind the would-be colored Indian was thrown from the train. The fact that no faro is cbargccl Indians on government subsidized railroads rendered the jlan a very feasible one, especially in ;his case, .is the party had a bronze complexion. PRISONERS HIGH IN MIDAIR. Jiff Whrol Stops Running, to the Great Dlxcoin fort of Fitmengcn. At JJniTs court, London, there is a great wheel, larger than tlic famous b'erris -wheel of Chicago, carrying 40 .)ig cars. The other evening the wheel started with quite a number of people on board, but suddenly ceased to revolve. Those who were able to do so 'eft the cars. Ladders were procured, nnd later fire escapes, to rescue some of the passengers. But in spite of all these efforts' 'quite a number of people were compelled to remain aloft, and they •woke the next morning early and in a \ery hungry condition. By .means of ropes wins of coffee nnd baskets of read were hauled up to them, and the work cf trying to revolve the wheel wns resumed. At noon the great machine again began to revolve, and the aerial irisoners were finally, released, amid nuc.h cheering .from the crowds, who ind assembled to witness the rescue. Mr*. Thumb*!

Banting Ammonia Plpefietn a Multitude to Weeping. A do/en funerals could not have produced Uic weeping- that there was on, Harrison avenue the other evening, and yet there were no deaths that have been reported. The cause of the tears -was the ammonia that was rnmpant on the street, Bays the Springfield Republican, The Kibbe Brothers company has just bought a new refrigernting- machine for cool lug their chocolate. The workmen had just finished putting it in and had started it for a trial, when a pipe burst and the ammonia vapor, which is used for producing the cold, escaped rapidly into the basement, causing a general stampede. Nothing could stand before the Htinglng vapor, and it soon had the basement all to itself. But that wasnot enough; It spread upward throughout the building, but, as it was six o'clock anyhow, and the employes were just coming out, it diil no harm there. But it also spread out into the street, anil filled it full as for OB Dwightstreet, and the pnssers-by hod to hold their hand • kerchiefs ic their faces. A considerable crowd gathered as near us. they dared, to watch the efforts of one of the workmen to get his coatnnd ve.st, which he had left in the basement in his hurried OKsnpe. It was impossible to go into the place again, and lie got a long pole and angled through an open window for his garments. It was hazardous fishing, however, mid the ammonia, soon drove him away bailed, and he went to his supper in his working jacket. Nothing could be done but let> the. ammonia waste its sweetness till it, was spent, nnd the aroma was powerful nil eight. BONHEUR'S LATEST PICTURE. Portrayal of a Historical Duel Fought by Twu Famous IIor»c». At Lofevrc's gallery, in King street, St. James, London, is the last effort, of that astonishing genius, Mlle.'I!osaI5ou- •hcur. Jn a large picture called "The Duel," an. historical incident of 1734, representing a combat between two fa- mons heroes, the Codolpkin Arabian and Hobgoblin, the property of Lord Godolphin. The two thoroughbred tmi- rials are engaged in fierce fight with teeth a,ud heels, and it is needless to say that such a subject severely ta-xes thi? best powers of an animal painter. The f.unous author of "The Horse Fair" has not failed, and now, at a time of life when she has passed the allotted space of man upon earth, she has produced a work which, in design, drawing, and, execution, she has never excelled in her prime. Those caring for horso pa in ting- will be more than delighted with this really extraordinary production, which Bin-passes the pictures of most of the crrea.test masters and is excelled by none. In an upper gallery at Lefevre's, also, is a portrait of Mile. Louht-ur by Marchioness do. Crass, or, as she signs herself, Consuclo Fould. The great ani- mai painter is pictured slnnding, in throe-qua-rtcr length, wearing a black velvet blouse, paletto. and brushes in cne hand, and the'cther on the head of her noble hound, Lnron. As those of us who ba.vc seen Mile. Bonheur know, sbe is a type cf dignified, handsome old. age; and.in this eminently successful presentment we sec her as six: really : ;i —bright eye?, comely and singularly intelligent looking-. MADE THREATS_WHILE ASLEEP. Jail Sentence Imposed on nil Jowa Man for SliiRiilnr Ml-tcomluct. Fifteen days in jail wa.s the scnU-uce .mposcd by 'the police court 0:1 John Clark, f-r Sioux City, for talking in his sleep. Clark says'the habit dates from his childhood. On the occasion of his offending he wns particularly violent, however. He admits having used extremely profane language, and cxplams !iis knowledge ot the faet by saying thai hn awoke in time to understand a, few of t.hc lust words leaving his mouth. His wife was much nlarmcd, knowing- that he always kept a revolver handy. She jumped out of bed and rushed to u icigiibor's in her nightdress. There hc recounted her husband's behavior, aid she feo-rod be might decide to use is firearms as well as swear at her un- fss some one took- !=teps to woke him, ,nd finally dispatched an officer to the house to ta.ko 1dm in custody. The :ourt thought Clark's habit a very bad >ne and sent him toja.il in the hope of jrcnking it up. WILL HAVE A NEW BUILDING. FREAKS OF A CYCLONE.

FATAL EFFECT OF SERUM. i;hllil of a Berlin rhytilclun I)ln» Imme- tllutoly After Injection.

A servant in the physician's household showing signs of diphllieria, the doctor, to prevent his child from ocntnicting the disease, administered an injection of the serum and the chilli died in a few minutes.
