Many people seem to think that ether or other saturators have had their day. On investigation we are of the opinion that this is in the main the thoughts of those who for some reason or other have not yet tried them. The general reason given seems to be that ether is a dangerous thing to handle—-so is a razor for that matter ; but because a child gets hold of one and cuts its fingers, or a lunatic cuts his throat with this instrument, it would be ridiculous to suggest that people give up shaving on the plea that the razor 1s a dangerous instrument, or that steamboilers should be discarded because some one in his carelessness exploded one. We think we may safely assert that saturators, instead of having had their day, are only now becoming popular, and we have not heard that anyone who has given it a thorough trial has anything to say against modern forms, A few more seasons will find them in general use. * On the 11th ult., at the Ashton-under-Lyne Photo Society, Mr, Lees gave anew departure in a lecture on making lantern-slides. He devoted a considerable time to projecting upon the screen a number of slides, showing various faults, at the same time pointing out how these faults could be remedied. During the same lecture he showed slides with clouds printed on the cover glass, and also repeated the same slide without the clouds, thus showing the great improvement in the former.
