Notes, Drollery


Invention, Technology, Telegraphy, Engineering, Amusement

    Discusses some possible uses of the 'innumerable air-tubes' used in crinoline-inflated petticoats, once the latter have gone out of fashion. Suggests using them for holding the electric telegraph wires, for building life-preservers, and for a speaking-tube between London and Paris.
