**HIS DEAD WIFE'S PHOTOGRAPH.** 已逝妻子的照片

This story created a sensation when it was first told.

这个故事一经流传就轰动一时。

It appeared in the papers and many big Physicists and Natural Philosophers were, at least so they thought, able to explain the phenomenon.

它曾出现在许多研究报告中,许多著名的物理学家和自然科学家都一度认为,至少他们曾经这样想过,可以解释这个故事里的现象。

I shall narrate the event and also tell the reader what explanation was given, and let him draw his own conclusions.

我要讲讲这个故事和关于这个现象的一种解释,最后你们自己将得出结论。

 This was what happened. A friend of mine, a clerk in the same office as myself, was an amateur photographer; let us call him Jones. Jones had a half plate Sanderson camera with a Ross lens and a Thornton Picard behind lens shutter, with pneumatic release.

事情是这样的,和我在同一间办公室工作的一个朋友,是个业余摄影师;我们就叫他琼斯吧。琼斯有一台半感光桑德森相机,配套一个罗斯滤镜, 还有一套带气压释放阀和滤镜的桑顿-皮卡相机。

The plate in question was a Wrattens ordinary, developed with Ilford Pyro Soda developer prepared at home.

问题是,感光板使用的是一个普通的莱顿感光板,冲印使用在自己家调配的伊尔福连苯三酚海波显影剂。

All these particulars I give for the benefit of the more technical reader.

以上这些细节是为了方便更多的懂行的读者了解情况,

Mr. Smith, another clerk in our office, invited Mr. Jones to take a likeness of his wife and sister-in-law.

我们办公室的另一个同事,史密斯先生,请琼斯先生为他的妻子和妯娌拍些照片。

This sister-in-law was the wife of Mr. Smith's elder brother, who was also a Government servant, then on leave.

这位妯娌是史密斯先生的哥哥的妻子。他的哥哥也是一位政府职员,当时正在休假。

The idea of the photograph was of the sister-in-law. Jones was a keen photographer himself.

拍照是这位嫂子的主意。那时琼斯先生自己也是个爱到处给人拍照的摄影师。
