Has a First Class
The time has arrived when you
can talk and wrap up -what vou
say in a sheet of paper, put a two
cent stamp on it, send it to your
friend and he can unwrap it and
hear every word you said in ex
actly the same tone of voice you
used in dictating it. This is all
possible, provided you both own
phonographs, the new machine
that has just made its advent. It
looks like a sewing machine. It
runs noiselessly, by foot power,
and all you have to do is to talk
to it through a mouth piece on
the end of a flexible rubber tube.
You can talk as fast as you like
and as loud; you can whistle, sing
or furnish any kind of music, and
the graphophone will take it all
down, and reproduces it every two
minutes for the next 100 years if
you wish, each time accurately in
every syllable and tone, even to
the little peculiarities of your
The way it's done is this: Your
voice travels through the tube and
agitates an isinglass diaphragm at
the cud of it, and the diaphragm
gives motion to a needle, which
records the sound-waves on a little
black cylinder or a flat sheet of
pasteboard ot wax and parathne.
Then you hear it again by the re
verse process, the little, recorded
wave traveling back again along
the tube to your ears, both of
which it enters by means of the
forked ends to the tube, which di
vides near the face of the hearer
and sends the sound in both sides
through little transmitters which
barely rest on the fleshy pa'rt of
the ear. Two men can. carry on'a
dialogue with the same grapho
phone. Thus a lawyer could take
a deposition, or a newspaper re
porter could perpetrate an inter
view, and then send the block
cylinder up to the type-setter, who
could put it on his graphophone
and put it in type word by word,
or two words at a time, or a whole
sentence, just as he wished, for
there is a regulator to n, or the
type-writer man could reduce it to
Two of the cylinders can be
talked to on the same machine,
and thus you have one to send
away and one to preserve. Here
are some of the things it will de:
It will preserve your wife's cur
tain lecture when you have Won
to the lodge and you can sit down
to the machine and listen to it
when you return about 2 a. st.,
without causing your better half
the annoyance of sitting up to de
liver it in person.
It will enable you to near the
death bed remarks of a friend in
his own voice fifty years after he
is in his grave, and your grand
children down to the thirtieth gen
eration can hearyour parting words
in the same way.
It will take a man's will in his
own voice and words, and when it
is presented to probate it will be
its own witness.
It will give you Patti's singing
or Edwin Booth's oratory or the
dulcet melody of tho bewitching
harp that plays up by the O. R. &
N. dock, and you can hear it all
in your own house, and when you
feel lonely you can send out to the
nearest graphophone ' store and
buy a couple of dozen good stories
on cylinders and hear your graph
ophone relate them.
And this is only a part. Reader,
use your own imagination. 11
you've a girl tuat is somewhere
else, just think of her voice coining
to you over the rail, perhaps 1000
miles away, saying, "Don't flirt,
Charley." And think whaUterrifio
dunning letters you could write!
What scoldings you could trans
mit by mail in all the grandeur of
your own voice.
Well this machine has come. -It
is the result of the agile in
genuity of Professor Charles Sum
ner lainter. A company has been
organized, and the machine is
being put on the market, nnd is
already in use in many places. '
Then, again, a newspaper man
can connect his graphophone with
the telephone and send in a Jong
special, which can. be taken on
another graphophone at the other
end of the line.
Besides this it will record a
number of voices speaking at- the
same lime. Areporter talked into
a graphophone and the grapho
phone talked back in his own voice
and the voice of other people, and
sang to him and whistled and gave
a hand-organ sonata at the office.
There is an invention being per
fected to go with the graphophone.
It is a jet of water-receiver, which
will take all tlie 'voices in a circle
of thirty-one feet, thus doing away
with the speaking-tube. The
pasteboard cylinders of the graph
ophones hold about a third of a
column of language, and cost
about 3 cents. They come in
smaller pieces. So one can write
a letter on the graphophone and
it will cost him less than stationer.
My son, don't jump at conclu
sions when you see" a man going
to the bank with his head in the
air and the ends of two $20 bills
ostentatiously sticking out between
the lpaves of his bankbook. He
may not be going to deposif 5,
000 in twenties. He may be go
ing' to take up a ninety-day note
that is so close to a protest that
the recording angel is listening

Regulator -presents itself as a most
aumiraoie remedy, uwmg to us mini
action it can bo taken bythe weak and'
debilitated at all times nnd under any
circumstances with perfect safety. One
of tlie most venerable of the U. S. Sen
ate, the late A. II. Stephen'", of Ga., said
"Simmons Liver Regulator is mild and
suits me better than more active rem
edies." The Chicago authorities think
that too many men are slugged
and sand-bagged along the banks
of the filthy stream called Chicago
river, and a police patrol boat is
loudly called for. Since January
1 last nearly 100 bodies have been
taken out of the river, in most
cases the victims of thugs or river
