As most of our readers lave ‘heard of the excellence of the large lantern-slides that were exhibited years ago at the old Polytechnic, they will, doubtless, be interested in knowing that we are making arrangements to devote an evening, later in the year, for the exhibition of guch sets as can be shown with two of the large lanterns. As soon as we have definitely fixed on a date, we shall have pleasure in ‘announcing full particulars. The slide and lanterns are the property of Mr. E. H. Wilkie. Mr. Wirxre, who was connected with the Polytechnic in its palmy days, is now writing a series of articles for our columns on optical illusions in connection with stage work. sd * * On April 11, when a lantern entertainment was being given at North Botany Town Hall (Sydney), Australia, the reservoir of the spirit jet burst. An elderly lady near the lantern got so severely burned that her injuries proved fatal. A great panic prevailed, and in the excitement a woman dropped a baby from the gallery, but some people below caught it, and it was found to be uninjured. A patent has been applied for ‘‘ for a method of producing photographic magic-lantern slides, pictorial representations, prints, and the like, from living or artificial models, without the aid of scenic effects, by combinations of artistic and photographic manipulation,” and a company is preparing to work this patent. The artist-manager is to be Mr. Weeks, who, we learn, has entered into a contract for five years.
