The author of this admirable little work has, for many years, been closely connected with Mr. Thos. Edison in his marvelous clectrical experiments and inventions.
From his practical standpoint he has felt the need of just such a book as he has been led to prepare. Boys of fourteen years of age and upwards will find in the work practical information in the various branches of electrical sciences.
Six editions have already been sold in America and three editions in England.
"It is not intended, in the slightest degree, to put it forward as a scientific work, but it will probably give to many the information they desire without requiring too great a research into books which treat more extensively and deeply of this subject."

Mr. Thos. Edison writes: "I have the MS. of AN EPITOME OF THE SYNTHETIC PHILOSOPHY.
your 'A. B. C of Electricity,' and find that the statements you have made therein are correct. Your treatment of the subject and management of the matter have impressed me favorably
How can I dress in style at moderate cost? I want my clothes just as handsome as Mr. Spendmuch wears, but I can't afford to go to his tailor, Mr. Chargehigh, for he will want almost a fortune for one suit and an overcoat.
I DON'T WANT TO
go to Mr. Lackstyle Readymade, his clothes have no tone at all-beside they have such a 'commonplace' appearance that a gentleman positively feels uncomfortable in them.
HERE IS THE IDEA:
Go to E. O. THOMPSON, the only American firm that has a house in London, where they make up their special clothing with even more style than Mr. Chargehigh, and sell it cheaper than Mr. Lackstyle Readymade.

In the discussion caused by Mr. Plumb's offering as an amendment to the dependent pension bill a repeal of the limitation of the arrears of pensions, a number of estimates were mentioned, as to what the cost to country would be, if the amendment were adopted. Mr. Plumb's estimate was where in the neighborhood of $500,000,000," but he had read a report in which Gen. Black, the then Commissioner of Pensions, had estimated that the cost would be $380,581,300. Gen. Raum, the present Commissioner, estimated the cost at $470,000,000 to $480,000,000. Mr. Cockrell's estimate of Gen Raum's ability to estimate, led him to estimate the cost at least $600,000,000. Notwithstanding this slight difference of $219,518,700 in estimates, Mr. Plumb's amendment was rejected; Messrs. Allision, Ingalls, Mauderson, Mitchell and Plumb and Sherman, Republicans, and Messrs. Turpie and Voorhees, Democrats, voting aye. Several Senators who voted no, expressed their belief in the wisdom of Mr. Plumb's ainendment, but thought it was of sufficiently great importance to be brought forward as a separate measure, in which case they would vote for it.

And that, therefore, Legislative Regulation is injurious for them.
Among these was Mr. Blair, whose estimate of the cost, by the way, was "perhaps 1,000,000,000," but he was sure the country could well afford it, and that the old soldiers were really in need of that amount. Mr. Plumb then offered as another amendment, a pension of $8. a month to all persons who had served ninety days, and had reached the age of sixty-two. But although Mr. Plumb estimated that the cost of this would be only $10,000,000 for the next year, (gradually increasing until 1905,) this too was rejected the vote standing 19 ayes to 39 nays. The estimates of the cost of the bill without Mr. Plumb's amendments, varied from $36,000,000 to Mr. Blair's hope that it would be at least 72,000,000. It was finally passed, as drawn, by vote of 41 to 12, all the nays being Democrats. This bill was vetoed three years ago by Mr. Cleveland.
The State of Michigan, on motion of Mr. Davis, comes in for several millions for internal improvement, $3,738,oco to be expended at Mary's River and $1,684,000 at Hay Lake Channel. Texas, on motion of Mr. Cake, is to receive for the completion of the entrance to Galveston Harbor, $6,200,000 in all, of which not more than $1,000,000 is to be spent in any one year. In addition to these Appropriations, a small one of $14,675, on motion of Mr. Voorhees, was made: to be applied to the purchase of the Capron Collection of Japanese works of art. This collection is now in the National Museum. During the discussion relative to this bill, Mr. Voorhees was asked by Mr. Hale, if the passage of the measure would in his opinion, assist in the amelioration of the condition of the farmers, about which he had been so much disturbed last week, but Mr. Voorhees showed that the collection had been made
