H, Preece. chief engineer and electrician to the postofftce, has put up a wire a mile long on the coast near Lavernock and a shorter one on Flatholm, a little island three miles off in the Bristol channel. He fitted the latter wire with a "sounder" to receive messages, and sent a message through the former from a powerful telephonic generator. _ That message on the mainland was distinctly leard on the island, though nothing connected the two, or, in other words, tho possibility of a telephone between places unconnected by wire was conclusively established. . There is a possibility here of interplanetary communication, a good dual more worthy attention than any scheuie for making gigantic electric flashes. We do not know if we can communicate by telephone through the ether to New York or Melbourne with or cables, but wo do know that, if we cannot, the fault is in our generators nud sounders, and not in any prohibitory natural law. Will our habitual readers bear with us for a moment as we wander into another, and as many of them will think, asupra- sensual re-ion? The thought in a man s brain which causes him to advance hia foot must move something in doing it, or how could it be transmitted down that five or six feet of distance? If it moves a physical something, internal to the body, why should it. not move also something external, a wave, as wo all agree to call it. which on another mind prepared to receive it—fitted with a sounder in fact—will make an impact having all the effect ia the conveyance of suggestion, or even of facts, of the audibility of words? Why. in fact, if one wire can talk to another without connection, save through ether, should not mind talk to mind without any "wire at all. . . None of us understands accurately, or even as yet approximately, what the conditions are, but many of us know for certain that they havo occasionally, and by what we call accident, been present to particular individuals, and that, when present, the communication is completed without cables, and mind speaks to mind independently of any machinery not existing within itself. Why, in the name of- science, is that more of a "miracle"—that is, an occurrence prohibited by immutable law— than tho transmission of Mr. Preece s message from Lavemock to Flatholm/— London Spectator.
