The light may be compared to a bright electric flame or gas jet, bottled in fi; glass sphere and forever remaining the same. Tlie inventor is S. B. Nlckum, who for the past three or four years has kept himself locked up at the novelty shop and rooms over Eckert's place at the corner of ru engaged to construct « n f §ol»r systems, and while do* noting tlaelr operation, ne was led conclusions which caused him to question and finally abandon Sir Isaac Newton's theory of gravitation and attraction. After that other thing;? came rapidly, the discovery of tow to make this new light being one of them. While living at Marion he discovered that beat eleciricity could be interchanged from one to another and in regard to such discoveries wrote to the Pollman Palace Car company, who sent a representative to see him. A flatter Ing proposition was made to Him provided he would turn beat into electricity without loss which stimulated him to search deeper with a view of producing light without heat, and frcm the air. After the theory of gravitation and attraction was thrown atiide, he soon got back to the source of all power—the sun, which la the center of the system of and the New Year to All. John Market and Third streets. It has been known by many that he was working on some fora of invention, but the nature of Che same has been a secret up to the present time. The device is now so perfect in the mind of the the New Otto, bought and some at real bar- Kauffiuan, of over 1DO cases train ptlces.

A n exchange says that In olden tim » a witness In court was required to take *hree separate oaths, the I /standing, the second sitting and wJ third lying. The last seems to ba i he kind that some; take even to thli day If one Is to Judge from some of the testimony heard in tho courts of j astloe. inventor, that the facts have given to the prefs, and wibhin the next few days the metropolitan dailies and scientific papers will be full of it. The nature of construction or process by which this new light U produced, the inventor will not at pies- ent make public. The ligM is contained in a round glass, globe or sphere, in which go-called gravitation and outside connection Is cut off. They can be made of almost any "brilliancy, from the size of a pen to that of the most powerful arc lamp, or even greater. They resemble the light of the noon-day sun, a beautiful, never-changing.never-fllckering white light, and when once made and sealed, remalm constant forever there- alter. There are no wires and no electric current Is used, but the light never goes out, and when not In use can be placed In a bureau drawer or any convenient receptacle 'till needed. The light remains constant, kept so by the surrounding moving matter- air—but the globe is cold, there being; no losii of heat or movement from the; interior to the outside. They can be suspended in any manner, either in ii room or on the street, and can be used for any and all purposes, where a llight Is required. There is no possibility of a fire resulting from th'3 use oil the light, for ttes very instant there Is a crack in tho globe the Hg;ht will go out. It could be broken in a keg of gun powder without the slightest danger of an explosion. edto saw could be duplicated, and a brilliant light be be made thit would be propetual, kept so by force of the surrounding movingjnat- ter In its high state of vibration upon a properly constructed apparatus. He saw the relation between : heat and electricity, and between magnetism and the so-called electric current and light, and that In oxygen or the air was found the source of ail power. From these discovers came the construction of the perpetual lamp as above mentioned, which has been seen in successful operation by several responsible citizens of Logansport That's what the m said when his laundry came h< yellow, orn' and faded.

B. Nlckum. He is known to but few of our people, as he has lived-.only his workshop ifor many years. B about forty years of Cage and a widower with no children. Some years ago he and 3 his brothers operated a machine and .repair ishop on Railroad street, near foundry. During the time he has been working on the, invention, he has written a boo'k on philosophy, ott four hundred pages, shortly to be ([published, in which he explains, the basis of his discoveries. In it, science is to be revolutionized!; Sir Isaac Newton's theory of gravitation is proven false; no such thing as attraction exists; growth of all plant life comes from the air; sun's heat not due to contraction.
