BORED BY BRAINS.
HOLE DRLLFD THROUGH A
BOARD BY MENTAL EFFORT.
Electric Wizard’s Workshop-
Electricity to Run Railroad Trains
Between Big Towns and Cities- How
to Make Bananas.
From the New York Herald.
“I enu make you think a holo through a
half-inch board," was the rather startling
remark made to a reporter.
The speaker was Edward Weston, of
Newark, one of the leading experts in elec
tricity of the world.
“Well,” replied the reporter, “I. have
heard of a man who could talk the ears off
„ bronze statue, but your idea goes way be
yond that. What is the trick l"
“No trick at all,” said Mr. Weston. ‘‘l
ani iu sober earnest. I will convince you
that the mere mental effort needed to solve,
for instance, a mathematical problem, can
lie list'd siumltanoousiy to drive a motor
that will bore a hole through a board.”
“Is this another Keely affair?” asked the
“I see I shall have to convince you by ac
tually performing the experiment/’ said Mr.
Weston, “so come out and spend the after
noon at my laboratory.”
The invitation was accepted, and the re
porter spent not only the afternoon, but
most of the night, with Mr. Woston, who
lias long been electrician for the United
States Electric Lighting Company, but who
was recently released from connection with
that company by the expiration of his con
MrWeston has fitted up in the rear of his
place, at Newark a laboratory for the pur
pose of scientific experiment and research,
it is a veritable Aladdin’s palace, having
been created by the “slaves of the (electric)
lamp,” and having as many magical appur
tenances as ever the genii could boast of.
Entering the physical department, Mr.
Weston produced two thermopiles. A ther
mopile is a device for generating electricity
direct from heat. It consists of bars of dis
similar metals placed close together, alter
nately, so that a section cut through the
thermopile would resemble a chess board,
one metal representing the black and the
other the white squares. These bars are in
sulated from each other, except at alternate
ends, where electric connection is made.
The application of heat at once excites an
electric current in the thermopile, as was
shown to the reporter by several experi
“Now,” said Mr. Weston, “I will connect
two of these thermopiles by this wire. They
are connected in opposition, so that as long
as the same amount of heat is applied to
each they will neutralize each other, and
there will be no electric current to run this
electric motor, which is in the circuit. But
if one is healed more than the other the
greater current will overpower the lesser, to
use a commonly understood way of express
ing the result, and a current will pass to
“I place one thermopile in this dish, sur
rounded by water, which I keep exactly at
the normal temperature of the blood—9B.s°.
Of course that would excite a current, but
I neutralize that current by placing the
other thermopile in contact with your tem
ple. You see, the two thermopiles now
counteract each other, since the same de
gree of heat is applied to each. Now, take
a problem in mechanics and solve it. Are
TACKLING A PROBLEM.
With a thermopile pressed against the
starboard lobe of his alleged brain, and
enough wires and other electric appliances
close at hand to send him to Lucifer if he
refused, the reporter intimated his willing
ness to attack a problem, If it were only a
“All right. Now, suppose you drop a
stone down a coal shaft and hear it strike
bottom in five seconds, how deep is the
shaft? Remember, s=vt, and and
you can a110w*1,142 feet per second for the
velocity of sound.”
It is hardly necessary to say that the re
porter struggled with that, problem with an
energy born of despair. He quickly forgot
all about the electric experiment, and was
bent upon reconciling the conflicting de
mands of the time of the stone’s downward
flight and the time of the upward flight of
the sound made by its striking the two in
tervals equaling five seconds.
Suddenly he was aware of a buzzing in
the motor. It began to spin faster and
faster until he lost interest in the problem,
when it began to slacken speed.
“Ah!” said Mr. Weston, “stick to your
mechanics or you deprive the motor of
power. You must keep up your mental
exertion if you want to bore that hole.”
Thus adjured, the reporter struggled with
the mechanical and algebraic difficulties of
the case, until, having got utterly muddled
with v and g and t, he couldn’t have told
whether the shaft was 50 or 500 feet deep.
He made a valiant struggle, nevertheless.
A PROMISE KEPT.
As his supposed brain wrestled with the
problem the temperature of his head in
creased and the thermopile in contact was,
of course, heated above its twin, which re
mained at the normal blood heat. As this
difference in temperature generated ah
electric current, which current ran the
motor, it was evident, that the latter was
being driven practicably by the reporter's
efforts to solve the problem. And as the
motor, with a loaded flywheel, carried a
fine drill on its axis the piercing of a piece
wood by the drill was easily accomplished,
long before there was the least prospect of
the depth of the coal shaft being discovered.
Thus Mr. Weston had literally kept his
promise of making the reporter “think a
hole through a half inch board.”
Further experiments only added to the
reporter’s uncanny suspicions as to the com
pany he was in. Mr. We6ton has not the
appearance of a dealer in the black art, but
certainly he would havo been burned at the
stake had he lived in Salem two hundred
years ago and done what he now does.
AN UNPARALLELED LABORATORY.
His laboratory is not exclusively devoted
to electricity. It consists of four distinct
departments—mechanical, physical, chemi
cal and experimental. Scientific men who
have seen all the chief laboratories of the
world, say that there is no Oihqr in this
country which is at all comparable to Mr.
Weston’s, except the one at Cornell Uni
versity, and even that locks something of
the completeness with which details have
been provided for by Mr. Woston.
Passing through the chemical department,
the reporter’s unscientific interest was at
tracted to a small vial containing a sub
stance of a beautiful reddish pink. Some
how ho was drawn toward that particular
bottle, with an aching desire to smell of its
“I wouldn’t, if I were you,” said Mr. Wes
ton. “If you want a case of catarrh worse
than you ever dreamed of or imagined, you
might take a sniff or two there. Not ordi
nary, every-flay catarrh, you know, but a
Rood all- winter-and-next-suinraer affair.
“Now, here is another sweet odor. One
slight smell of this bottle would render you
instantaneously insensible and make you in
capable of moving for a long time. No, It’s
not. deadly, except in very largo quantities,
nut it is a most clangorous compound.
USEFUL IN WARFARE.
“It could be used upon a man asleep,
without rousing him to consciousness, and no
would he regarded, to all intents and pur
poses, as a dead man while its effects lasted.
II it were usod in warfare a whole ship’s
company could bo instantly prostrated,help
less and unconscious, by the oxplodou of
one shell loaded with it o’n the vessel’s deck.
It is very cheap, indeed, and I should not
be at all surprised to see it used in war.”
“What is itf"
“It is nitrate of amyl, and if you want to
get a little of it, just, catch a bedbug; they
wnell just alike."
“Have you any other agreeable specialties
in the way of smell*?” aeked the reporter.
“Well, here is one, but I cartt let you
smell it. This is cacodyl, and it kills, not
on sight, but on smell. It is t,sul)ho-organic
compound with arsenic, and it aso is very
cheap. A whole army could bo killed oif
by a few shells full of it. If wt coine to
that—and n small .State might resort to it
if threatened with invasion by a large one
—we shall very nearly put an erd to war.”
“Your laboratory is very lx>atiful, very
complete ami very scientific. Mi. Weston.”
said the reporter, “but couldnt you find
something more agreeable to stew me than
these suggestions of Chinese methods of
“Well, how do you like this?’ queried the
scientist as he uncorked under the reporter's
nose a big bottle with an almost colorless
liquid in it. The odor was like that of a
plantation ripened banana—one of the kind
that the St. Domingo darkies like to cut
“just at de full o’ de moon”—the perfection
of banana in short.
“Now, that is acetate of amjl,” continued
Mr. VV eston, “and if all the banana planta
tions should give ou I could make a very
r~* imitation of bmeuias out of corn starch
and that liquid.”
“Holy smoke!" said the reporter. “I’ve
heard of artificial eggs, and if you can make
artificial bananas I’ll believe the egg story.
What’ll you make the skins of?’’
HOW TO MAKE BANANAS.
“Oh! that’s easy. Here is a substance that
is tough and cheap and it can be easily
moulded into the proper shape. Then the
corn starch filling can be poured in and the
banana is ready ter sale. This stuff for the
skins is merely common cotton, saturated
with sulphuric and nitric acid—gun cotton,in
fact—dissolved in a mixture of ether and
alcohol, and the solvent then evaporated.
It becomes then aasolid, resembling fine
white horn, very tough; the toughest sub
stance known. It can be shaved into sheets
of the proper thickness and the banana peel
color can easily be given."
As the reporter had eaten bananas at Mr.
Weston’s lunch table that day he began to
have grave doubts. Even the Havana
cigars offered him in the library had a sus
picious look. What if they’ were manufac
tured out in that dreadful laboratory, too?
The whole place was uncanny. Electricity
was “on tap,” so to speak, everywhere. He
didn’t dare to wipe his feet on the innocent
looking door mat, because it might be
merely a battery in ambuscade. Sure
enough on risking an encounter with a very
commonplace scraper, a couple of brushes
sprang out by electricity and cleaned off
the Jersey mud in no time.
Doors opened when one approached them,
and mysteriously closed when ono had
passdd. There was no gas—only incandes
cent lamps, and it was not necessary to go
near them to light them. Standing in his
hall Mr. Weston lighted up every room in
the house successively.
ELECTRIC RAPID TRANSIT.
‘‘l have solved the question of travel by
electricity,” finally said Mr. Weston, “and
I am now building an experimental motor.
There will, of course, be improvements in
deviaes, but there is nothing further to be
done in principle. That is complete and
leaves no question that we can travel be
tween New York and Philadelphia, drawn
by an electric motor as rapidly and safely
as by steam power, and more cheaply.
There is no guesswork about my assertion.
It is so certain that I stake my professional
reputation on having the trains running as
soon as the patents are granted, the roads
ready to make the experiments and the
motors built. Of course I cannot now make
public the principle, but I may say that it
differs from any of the existing methods of
operating electric motors on railway lines.
It is not merely a scientific possibility, but
a practical, commercially available and
economical solution of the problem of elec
tric railway motors.”
Mr. Weston's reputation as an expert in
electricity gives to his assertion a value that
will be readily recognized by other scientific
men. He is peiflmps even better known in
Europe than hols in' this country, owing to
the recognition there given to the indi
vidual, while here his personality has been
overshadowed by the company whose suc
cess depended upon him.
Park Benjamin, the well-known scientific
ex;Wxt, when questioned concerning the
nmir-Lje made by Mr. Weston, said:
“If Weston says the thing is a certainty,
it is a certainty. He is the most accurate
man in things scientific 1 know. He will
never declare a thing a success—no matter
how promising—while in the experimental
stage; bnt when he says he knows a thing
he does know it positively.”
The Work of the Signal Service for
the Past Year.
Washington, Oct. 17.—The annual re
port of Gen. Greely, Chief Signal Officer,
is made public. The report says:
It is intended to make careful experiments
the coming vear with homing pigeons, and the
Chief Signal officer has directed that expert
mentis be made from Key West toward Cuba,
with the expectation based upon the
opinion of experts, that by training
these birds in nights from the seaward
a United States squadron in the vicinity of Ha
vana might be enabled to communicate rapidly
and certainly with the naval station at Key
West. If such flight is possible from Cuba, it
could be eventually extended to the windward
islands and even to Nassau. The increase in
the length of hours in the daily indications has
resulted in a reduced percentage of verifica
Through restrictive legislation the Chief
Signal Officer finds himself compelled to permit
new officers to serve, their apprenticeship in pre
dicting at the expense of the whole country. It
has occurred, as might be expected, that novices
in the work at times made erroi-s that subjected
the service to criticism, which, while well
merited in such cases, cannot Is: considered
valid criticism of the methods followed by the
The general percentage of successful in
dications during the year have been: For
weather, 74.5; wind, 69.1; temperature, 74.4,
a general average of 73.5. The result is not
satisfactory to the Chief Signal Officer.
Reference is made to the discontinuance of
the West Indian service and its renewal is
suggested in order that notice may be given
of approaching hurricanes. During the
year tnere have been 1,050 storm signals of
all kinds ordered, of which 1.034, or 68.5 per
cent, have been verified. This percentage
is the lowest for years. The bureau
has in view the early display of
signals which will not only indicate whether
the storm is to be light or severe, but also
to show whether the winds are to come from
a special quarter, and, a matter at times of
great importance, whether the storm centre
is approaching or has passed the station.
Caught an Eagle at tho Masthead.
From the Kingston Freeman.
Robert Burley, of Rondout, is a sailor on
the schooner Isle of Pines, of this port. One
afternoon recently, when off New London,
Burley saw an eagle alight on the topmast
of the* Isle of Piues. The actions of the bird
showed t hat it had come a great way and
was tired out. Burley waited until night,
when he climbed the rigging to tho topmast.
The eagle was fast asleep. Burley grasped
the bird by the legs. It showed light, and
tore the flesh on one of Burley's arms in
several places with its talons, anti it also
attacked his head and face with its strong
beak. After a struggle Burley, bleeding
from numerous wounds, reached the deck
with his captive. The eagle measured about
five feet from tip to tip. Burley has sent it
to his brother, Henry Burley, here.
