B. Stickney, of Ann Arbor, at the library building last evening, uuder the auspices of the Columbiau club, was listeued to with deep intei-est by a good sized andience. 'Nicola Tesla and Recent Marvelons Discoveries in Electrieity and Ether' was the subject, and it was handled in au able marnier by the speaker, who is au ardent admirer aud stroug champion of th ServĂ­an whose startling electrical discoveries have opened up a new era in the world of science. Although Nicola Tesla is but 37 years of age he has f athotned many of the hidden mysteries of electricity and is the patentee of 127 inventions along this line. Prof. Stickney suggested that the world was upon the eve of even greater discoveries in electricity and ether, the latter of which he denominated as a storehouse of energy, and ventured the prediction that in flve years from now the world would stand face to face with materializad forces of which it does not now even'dream.
