.of nu ice famine 'this year, which has made its appearance in the papers \Vith itSacouatomed regularity, wduld fihd little credenes ajtn ong 1 oesean travelers ttt thid sen sofa. Incoming 1 steamers report a redundant superfluity of ice floating about in tbe North Atlantic, and many of them have been greatly delayed by itj not that they might pick up niid- ocean cargoes to ease the strain in the ice-cream t market, but in dodging about among the bergs and floes, that experienced navigators declare are of unusual frequency and size this year. The passenger steamers are generally taking more southerly routes than usual, and so have to a certain extent avoided the frigid dangers experienced by some of the foreigners that have recently arrived. The usual track of West bound steamers is literally blocked with vast plains and mountains of ice that are bearing down on the Labrador current, and bringing the possibilities of arctic travel almost to our doors. The Kansas City on her last trlpthis way had to bear away far to the south-west to avoid thirty-four big-bergs; and the American clipper ship General Ktiox sailed along a great ice field in •which the lookout counted thirty-two bergs. These-may of course have been the same as those sighted by the Kansas City, in which case, however, the statements gain in corroboration what they lose in variety. ' The State of Georgia, a freight steamship from Aberdeen, struck into an ice pack off the coast of Newfoundland, that grew more and more compact -as she advanced, and the captain was finally compelled to change his course to the eastward, but not before the ice had broken a hole S)x4 feet into the forepenk of his vessel.

The company disbanded soon afterward, and ho removed to Augusta in 1802. His parents being advanced in years and possessed of little or no means, he entered the office of tho Constitutionalist and assisted in their support. He became city editor of this paper in 1863, and in 1860 the southern agent of the New York Associated Press. The next year he took charge of the business management of the Chronicle,.and ; in 1873, as the partner of 'Mr. H. Gregg Wright, then a leading sou them editor, bought the paper, which in 18?

Two timbers, nine feet long, 'served as a foundation, and across these were nailed four foot lengths of two-and-a-half inch plank. The face of the mat was covered with -oakum; And the contrivance was hold in place «ver the hole by chain cables passed completely under the ship's keel, taut, and made fast to the deck on •either side. A smaller mat was fitted over a, smaller hql« on the port bow, and with her nosp thus protected the •vessel pushed her way into open water, only to have her defenses torn ofJ by high seas which unrestrainedly into the yawning aperl/iires time she took a, header into :» a, and poured out again, in cataracts every time she rose to meet another, Fortunately the collision bull?7 head proved strong, and the steamship finished her voyage without further; mishap, and no more plates were ?}ppe4 |Fom tbe bow, The iee is likely to increase rather than to dimmish in tbe Atlantic for tbe present, but steamers about to sail from the other side will doubtless take' warning from tbo ships lately arrived, <m4 follow the more southerly course of the liners while this unusually large quantity Pf iee Js floating abput in the wanted paths of westbound Mrs, Abigail Hpbcvt observed a, few o the one hundredth anuiyer- her birth at her home in , N.

He wens w» the national democratic convention of 1864 as one of the. delegates from tho state at large, He was an earnest advocate of Cleveland's nomination for President at that time, and was vigorously opposed by the strong sentiment in the Georgia delegation in favor of the nomination of Mr, Bayard. He was emphatic in bis belief that good politics demanded the nomination of Cleveland, and before tbe meeting of the convention the handful of Cleveland men on the delegation had convinced tbe majority of the delegation of the wisdom of such nomination, and the vote of Georgia, was so recorded.- After the convention of 1881 Col, Walsh opposed the effort to displace the tariff plank of the platform of that convention, and substitute for it the sweeping tariff reduction policy that was being urged, and which afterward received the approval of President Cleveland in his. famous message of 1887. He believed that it was unwise and impolitic to precipitate such an issue upon the country on the ev0 of a, Presidential election and has held f rout that day to this, that had the party manifested woro conservatism, Mr, Cleveland would have been elected as his own successor.

Two Colls, 200 yards iu diameter of nluc turns ertoh of ordinary telegraph wire, Were erected on poles 800 yards apart, and owing to induction currents from telegraph lines, 200 yards awiy, the nicssjagc's could be read quite easily, -although the colls were entirely insttlntcd and Were not "earthed." It was found that niessogos could bo Sent with ten cells with p effect ease, and even With only five cells. The success of these experiments has demonstrated that the application of the invention can be greatly widened. It can be vised not only for communication between rock lighthouses and the shore, but in many other wnj's, notably on war ships, wihere tho coils could be placed for the purpose of establishing instantaneous communication with other ships during maneuvering or fighting. "•'-./Tlte Phonograph In Conrt. It will be remembered that soon'after the first electric underground road was laid in London proceedings wore taken against the railway company to recover damages for reputed injury to buildings near tiie line, by the nccus- sary excavation. TJie most important evidence brought Into court was afforded by a series of photographs. The engineer of the road,-who was-wise in his generation, had sent a photographer to make pictures of all the buildings along the b'ne of the road before sxca.- vations were begun. He consequently had a reliable record of their original condition. When the road was completed the photographer was again sent on the same orrand, and AVhen the two pictures, "before" and "after," were compared in court the hardest of swearing as to the supposed damage went for nothing. Science has again buen invoked as a witness in a case in a London court in the shape of the phonograph. The plaintiff sought-to obtain an injunction against the defendants on the ground of a nuisance caused by vibration. It was claimed that the vibration made it intolerable to the occupants of adjacent houses. Sometimes tho top and sometimes the bottom of the house was affected. In some instances families were shaken iu their beds ni'Vl prevented .from sleeping; clocks were stopped, and iioises were caused in the liouses from the sympathetic vibration of different objects. A phonograph was brought into court and placed before the judge, and tho uoise of the vibration nnd jnrring caused by the working of defendant's machinery wass reproduced. Tho phonograph had been set in the various rooms in the houses affected, and the phonograph cylinder indicated to the judge who listened to it more than a whole army of witnesses. 041 Duplicating tlie Effect of Light by Electricity. A. B. Dolboar describes bow tbe effects of light can be duplicated -with suitable electric apparatus. If a coin be laid on a plate of glass and a few sparks from an electric machine'be allowed to fall oil it the .glass surface will not appear to have been affected after tbe colu has been removed. But if the glass bo breathed upon the image of the coin "will at onco be seen. That It is really engraved on tho glass surface Is certain, otherwise it could be easily rubbed off. If a piece of pbo- tographis paper be substituted for tbe glass it -will have tbe imprint of the coin on it. It is not even necessary to have tbe sparks fall on tbe coin, for if the glass bo inclosed In a dark box aud brought near to tihe> short sparks of an Induction machine, tbe ether waves set up Avill aft'ect'the photographic surface, which may afterward bo developed in tbe ordinary way. In this way it Is possible to take the photograph of an object In absolute darkness, I. e., solely by means of the ether waves sot up by the sparking of a static machine. Prof. Dolbear, while pointing out that this is tit present an almost untrodden field of investigation, looks forward to the time when the qualities and colors of the surfaces o| many things will • be changed at.'wIU by tbo application of eleetrJo wives of suitable length, whereby proper chemical relations may be established, and -be believes that the eleeti'Je machine |e destined soon to bet come ft necessary adjunct to the apparatus of tho photographer, I« the transition through which tbe whole world is passing, in phiping JtseU upon another basis, the electrical field is one that is making real strides in the way of economical appliances. JSlec* triclty is slowly but surely waking a revolution Jn housekeeping, and pleasantly robbing that department, of a great deal of drudgers, ami the tendency is still onward Jn developing new appliances which add to the luxury of our later-day civilization. Tho latpst device in this way Is an electricftlly- •heated shaving pot. The base of the pot Is hollow, IHje the bottom of a champagne bottle, the Jamp being slipped Inside. The lamp Is of about eight candle power, and its cost is aliout 2 cents.
