Nlcoa Testa an nounces an Important discovery. He say that he has perfected vacuum tubes at such high illumination power that they may be used In lighthouses and that (hey will enable the photographer to work by rdght as well as by day. Th. result wMcit Mr. Testa has attained l.ave been achieved by the u3 of hie vacuum tubes and hi oscillator. The light which he is able to produce by this mean fa as bright, aa that of the noonday sun. By Its use every line of the object photographed may be made to stand xn clearly and distinctly. It is known chat it is" difficult to secure light whL-h will penetrate a fog. It la believed that light from the vacuum tufco 111 eventually be used for this purpose. It Is likely that prajUcai experiments will soon be mutle in some lighthouse on this coast for the purpose of deno-MUrat-Ing the practicability of Mr. Tenia's ind ention. L. A. W. pRE.SIPENT.
