>> Joke: 1042

An invention has been made at Georgetown observatory, Columbia, called the photo-chronograph, and the instrument causes a star to record the time of its own transit across the meridian. It is to be hoped this photo-chronograph is not to be applied to domestic uses. Fancy a man having it scientifically recorded what time he crosses his threshold at night. We surmise there would be scenes in the morning.
