Dr. J. Mount Bleyer, of this city, has been making a collection of voices for nearly five years, and ne has now fully five hundred specimens, which can be heard at any time by putting them in bis phonograph and setting the machine in motion.. Dr. Bleyer makes a specialty in diseases of the throat, lungs and respiratory organs, and his use of the phonograph "and micro-graphophone have been made solely for tho purpose of ascertaining the practical value of these inventions in regard to medical and other sciences. The voices are afl taken-on wax cylinders, five inches long by three in diameter. "Few people have any idea," Dr, Bleyer said to a reporter the other day, "of the wonderful changes that fcave been made in the phonograph since it first came out from the workshop of Mr. Edison. The instrument has now been so perfected that it is capable of faithfully representing every word, syllable, vowel, consonant, aspirant, or indeed sounds of any kind. "A curious feature of the modern phonograph is the difference made in the key of the voice by an increase or decrease, in the velocity of the cylinder. If the hitter is turned as fast in transmitting the voice aa it is in receiving, the sound is reproduced with almost mathematical fidelity. If, however, the cylinder is turned more slowly, the voice is reproduced in a much lower tone. So, on the other hand, if themechan- istn is moved more rapidly, the voice is reproduced in a much higher key. This curious fact enables a person. to hear him-' self speak as if he had been endowed with different^vocal organs. "A contralto, for example, who sings a song into the apparatus in her usual style may hear it reproduced as she gave it, or, by chancing the speed of the motor, ^aa a soprano, mezzo soprano, high treble, or, on the other b,and, ^ta a baritone, basso, or even basso profundo. Of course there ia a change in the time corresponding with the change in the key. The high, .treble sfasgs so. rapidly as to grate npqn the 1 ear, while the basso vocalizes so slowly as to suggests somnolent fatigue. Strangp td say, the quality of voice which the French call tim-. bre remains unchanged, no matter what time is employed. r*' IN MEDICENK. "But it is in medical science that the phonograph is destined to exert a greater influence. Its vdlue in this branch is barely beginning to be appreciated. For some years I have occupied myself in studying the uses to which this machine might be put in the medical as well as in other sciences, and I can safely say that already in the present stage of its construction the phonograph can be made to record many of the symptoms usual in diseases of the respiratory organs, in both, normal and" abnormal states. For. instance, the voice of singers with a good, voice may be recorded and kept for comparison, in case of any ailment, making the normal record a standard. , "Phonograms of tenors, baritones and bassos may be preserved, the voices studied as to tbe different shades of tone^tod quality, and be found of value in clinical, aa well as. in other, demonstrations. Good records of specimen patients, illustrating a certain cough, such as the whoop or.whoop- ing cough, . asthmatic cough, bronchitis. stenosis of the larynx, and in croup and diphtheria would be of great benefit, particularly in cases pf diphtheria and caoup where the stenosis is marked. "A standard of operation might be selected, and the students, listening through a cylinder, receive the impression therefrom, as to about the correct time when operative interference becomes necessary. With tho aid of such practical demonstration in the lecture rooms pf our colleges. I am certain, that our ptudents would gain more* from, 'one lecture than from, £wo dozen of tfoeojy draary and prevailing ones. "Ojoly too frequently, when we demonstrate some, parttgatey u> our students with a view V> tifosfeatliig certain points of Interest therein, a proper subject cannot be found, and words moat feebly take the place of fadts. Wow, It good records of clinical cases In one,** private or hospital experience , could be taken and kept, then living examples would always be in readiness and could be presented hV the various stages of the case." Dr. Bleyer inddently remarked that he' thought these .phonograpnio patienta would soon be placed in one or more of the medical colleges. He himself has a large collection pf cylinders illustrating the different forms of long 1 and thasffc diseases, Including stammering, cot^bihg, hoarse- neai and nasal troubles. . FHOBOGBAFHS Of EUOCOTTOIt "You must remember," said Dr. Bleyer, "that the many uses toxwUch this valuable machine may be put are just beginning to be realized. A practical application of the phonograph has been suggested by DC. Richard S. Roselthal, which is abeady productive of very satisfactory, mutta.
