Lord Kelvin, now more than 75 years oíd, has just taken out a patent on an improved device for making soun'lings at sea. Although his life work has been phUosophical rather than ■mechanical, and has related mainly to the theories that underlie physical phenomena, Lord Keivin is the author of useful instruments, among them the siphon recorder, for registering cable messages, and the quadrant electrometer.
