At all dinner-parties given, by the Prince and Princess of Wales the menu is invariably couched in the French language, no matter what the nationality of their Royal Highnesses' guests may be. But with the King no hard-and-fast rule obtains with regard to the language employed for the menu cards; and these, decorated with views of Buckingham Palace, are printed in colours. Electric cannon are announced from time to time, but still appear quite impracticable. In the case of the latest invention in this line, that of Prof. Birkeland, of Norway, a model has been constructed that can propel a lib. projectile with great force, the gun appearing to be a mere cast-iron tube wrapped with copper wire, and probably operating on the solenoid principle, but in applying this principle to cannon capable of projecting a 2-ton shot to a distance of several [ miles many difficulties arise.
