Marriage by telegraph has bt come
quite a common thing in this country,
On the twent v-econd of Mav, Mr. L.
W. Wi.lker and Miss M. M. Budding -
on were married, the bride being in
the Northwestern telegraph company' .-j
cilice at Milwjiikec, Yis., and the
groom in the office at Ovaionna, Minn.
' The cerpinony.' says r. local report.
began at eight o'clock and in a very
sliort time the couple, having respond-
?d to the c imindruias usually pro-
pounced on such occasions, vere pro-
nounccd man and wife and dismissed
with a benediction. The bride wore
in evening-dress of iiL.cic, with i.Lck
crepe si awl, and bore in her hand a
borptet of fl.iwers.' Upon this mar
riage a legal newspaper commented
that, as an ordained minister's authori
t' to marry extended only 'throughout
the State,' tie bride only was married;
that the statute providing that the
declarations of both parties must be
made in the 'presc-nce.' of the minister,
was violated; that witnesses were not
present, or, if they were, must have
witnessed the bride marriage to the
f ''.": ap:i operator, and that no cer
t 11 'ate could have been given, specify
ing the place of the marriage.
Among marriages that were odd in
the in: nner ot their celebration may
be mentioned that of Mr. Horace Tell
and Miss Jones on a public road in
Calvert county, Md.. in July. They
set out for home at seven A. M., so did
the clergy man, and, at the point where
they met the happy couple were u-.-r'-
' ted on horst-back beneath n shading
lime 1 Sth. at Mcntieello. Ill" the
Kev, Duncan McMillan, of Utah, was
united in marriage to F.mily Kent
JolmstOU, daughter of the Itev. Adam
Johnston who otH. dated. The eeremonv
. . , ,. ,
took place uti.lcr two grami nicicory
' trees, the branches above forming a
Ml,-f'l.v n:ltural bower. Guests assembled tin
" j der the trees, and the bride and gro' m
came to the shade preceded by two
one foot in the State and one in the;
Territory, while the bride was in
Nevada and the groom in Utah.
At New Haven, Conn., then
mariiagc on the stae;e. At tlie close
et 1 hp ri'i'i'l'ir nnrt'ormfinee if. was an-
. ... T .
nounced that 'Mr. James Jones, ot
, . .. i ii
Jones ik Creton, the r.lb shots, would

. nnit'd hi marriage to iMiss Jo.e-t
phine Blanchard, a member of the com
pany.' Aft?r Miss Farran 1 ai. i Bos

! ' -teresting as the fiction of Ju'es
I Verne. We have on!v room for a brief
t temetit of the important results of
1 i his labors. Bassing over, the scores
d" ingcuiou experiments made in
r Vr to utilize hU discovery that Ibe
carboa framework ol u trip of paper
r thread was the beat substance po
ible incatidfscent lighting, we will
describe the manner in which the
:ilui of carbon m ptepared for use.
With a suitable punch a miniature
horse-sdioc abo it two inches in length
unl ine-eight!i of an inc'i wide is cut
from n caril of liriktol board. A num-
f these pieces are laid flatwise in a
wrought ;rou mold about the size of
.he hand and scp itated froin each other
by tissue paper. The mold is tlun
eovere '. ai.d placed in nn oven, where
i is gradually raised to a temperature
! f about CuO degrees Fahrenheit.
Phis allow lh volatile po.tiods of Vie
paper to pass awav
The mold is then placed in a ftirnaeo
and heatud almost to a white heat,
ami then removed and allowed to cool
gradually. On opening the mold tbo
charred remains of the little hore-hoe
card board are found. It must bo
taken out with the greatest care else
it will fall to pieces. After being
removed from the mould it is plsccd
in a little glolo and attached to the
wires leading to the generating ma
chine. The globe is then connected
with an air pump, and the latter is at
once bet to work extracting the air.
After the air has been extracted the
glob i sealed, and the lamp is ready
The lamp itself is of tho simplest
construction, and may be manufac
tured for twenty-five cents. It con
sists merely of a metalic stand, at
the top of which is supported tho
paper carbon, its two end being at
tached by proper connection with tho
wires running tot he electric generator.
A vacuum glass globe covers tha car
bon to protect it from th atmonphero
and the lamp is complete. All the
regulators ami other complicate I ac
cessories, which were at first deemed
indispensable to biicces9 and the per
feet ion of which occupied many hours
of the inventor's time, have been dis
carded as unnecessary.
I'm: wires leading from any lniild
ing tlun illumiua'.ed may be nn
through the ga pipes so that in reality
the only change necessary to turn a
gas jet into nn electric lamp is to run
ihe wires through the gai pipe, take
off the jet, and fcrew tte electric lamp
in the latter's place. Mr. Editon
fin Is that the electricity can he regu
lated w ith entire reliability at the con
trol st a' ion, just as the pressure of gas
is now regulated, lty this system of
connecting the wires, the extinguish
ment of certain of the burners afreets
he o h j;s no moe than the extin
guishment of th? same number of gag
burners affects those drawing tho sup
plv 1'r.un '.he sain mains. The Min
. licity of" the completed lamp ecms
certainly to have arrived at the high
est point, and the inventor asserts it
as his belief that it is scarcely possible
t simplify it more.
