D., Pastor  Westminster Prosbytcuan Church,  New York City. ,  Take ye away tho stone.���St. John, xl.��  ,-.'1  'I'  .1  i  :/*  /  i ���* i  *l  ,'r  u  el!  r  !��4  n   v  i'��  ���'  .ij'  1  **  I  V,i  1  i   A'  'J  IV'  * 1  ��  ~t  f",  hi  >f  > 'j  I v'l  (I  %  i <  ?"  a' f  If -:.  d  !  S3,  On the one side of the stone door of  J Lazarus' tomb stood the dark messenger we call dcatli ; on the other, the  mighty King of all life ; for Lazarti3  had been dead four days, and Christ  had come to undo tlie work' of death  ' and to give to the young man the most  precious of all gifts���that,is, life.  He, who had created the worlds and  had kept them in right relations  through all the ages so that they go  singing on their journey could have  hurled that stone away with a word.  But, since' he was working from tlie  human side, He must needs respect  human conditions and give man a share  in His glorious work and also a chance  to learn the lessons of His, great life  on earth, for Christ's mission was not  bo much to make eternal impressions  on matter on the outer world, as to  make impressions on mind���the human  soul. , ,  It happens-, then,' that the chief service   of   man   to his fellow-men is   to  clear away difficulties that the Divine  Person and power  may  work,  as  on  that day human hands had to roll away  the stone from before the  tomb  that  Lazarus  might  feel  the thrill   of life.  Difficulties   are  of  various  kinds,  but  all alike prevent the  free working of  divine power in the soul.     A non-con-  ducter   has   come   between   God   and  man, and this must be removed fiom  the human side because of human sin.  This is why Chi ist c*mc aiound fiom  the side of divinity to the side of humanity,    bnng.ng   His    divinity    with  linn to give e(Tccti\eness to salvation.  The business   of discovery in the natural world is to clear away hindiances  ' and to make channels for forces which  were long ago leposed in nature right  under oui hands and so near that they  actually touch  us.    'Just as the qrcat  discoveries    m   electuary   consist   in  giving direction to that mighty power  that it may become a thing of service  rather than a means of destruction, sol  the clnof Idleness of religion is to clear  away the difficulties in the divine path  so- that God may   work   naturally in,  ihe'hearts of men.      Martha was un-'  happy in the incident of the text because   she ' was   not   willing  to   make  way for'the full woiking of the power  of God.     Most of the unhappiness ol  the   world is   on  the   same   account.  Every   day   we   pass   by   a   thousand  graves of buiied hopes of other people  and never once slop to see if we may  roll away the stone that the light of  God may shine in to give life to the  dead. .,  ,  Tl6w  wonderful   it  would  be if we  tould fully realize that Christ stands on  the human side of every trial and every (  trouble and every disappointment and  every   sin and  says :���"You   do yoiu j  part and I  will  do  Mine I      You remove all that    the human    hand can  take away and I will banish the res.t,,  as with a word I put death to flight ,a��  Lazarus' tomb."     It may not be mu^tf-  that you can do, but if it is  ever ,go  little it must be done before the divine  Eower can work. The world can never  e made better without positive effort The cheerful face, the willing  heart, the forgiving spirit, the helping hand and the godlike purpose  make the journey of life a giand  march of triumph.  But we are also to remove the stone  of   indifference.      Many   people   were  there that day who  did  not seem to  ,   ; care much whether Lazarus ever hved  i .  or not ; and even  Mai tha seemed ni-  I different to any eftort cm.the part o  |   I the Saviour.     So we find in the world  I   Tl to-day   the   head-shaking   and   hand-  !   3 wringing people who say :���"It wilUlo  ,   > UO good; there is no use in trjing.  | It is your place and mine to lilt hard  at this  woild's wcio-ht of soirow tint  the  resuncction   power   of   God  may  i give  life  to   a   dead   woild.      -Mailha  \ and   those   who   were  with   hei   have  i taught us how wc may  loll  away tlie  stone of unbelief and have the power  ���I of  new   and  gieatcr   life;   for   yen  , they hesitated and doubted lie asked  "Said  1  not unto   thee   ihat   if thou  wouldst believe thou  shouldst  see the  glory of God ?"  Then can   we not see   the  glo'y oi  ��� God   without    believing?        Ko,   wc  li rannot.      It is the only way.       ' b"ic  is many a daik grave of departed faith  saaled forcvei because v\c do not believe enough to icach out a hand lr>  help. There arc thousands ot then  in this city.  When .they believed and removed the  stone, what matchless  glory   did  tlicy  see 1     It is only by faith that >ou l.iay  ���see the glory of God.     When wc hear  that an  astronomer  has  discovered  a  new   comet   we  do  not  lead   that he  found  it with  the   unaided   eye.      He  saw it with  his telescope long bmorc  the rest of us knew anything about it.  When    a   man   announces   a   mighty  truth   of  God.   that   he  has    seen   its  beauty and  felt its po.vcr, though  wc  do not see it, wc know that it has been  made known to him by the wowWiul  reach  and levelalion ot  faith.

I  1 During the last three yeaj s considerable eftort has been made to find a  means by winch the odor and taste of  wild onion and bitLei uecdrmay be removed''from milk and cieam. > In the  spring of 1901, the wntcr was requested to try a pitent compound claimed"  to remove all kinds ol 'weedy taste  from milk, but it pioved to be an absolute failuie. Cooking soda (sakia-  tus) was also given a like trial, out failed of the puiposc clantied for it by  some people. llavmcr failed so far  to find an} thing thai when fed to the  cows would remove weea; taste m the  tmilk, the next step wis ti eating the  milk "and cieam. Bitter weed taste  was removed enurelv fiom cieam by  thoroughly mixing it with two or  moie paits of water at any tempeia-  ture above 70 degiecs Fahrenheit, and  then running the whole through the  separator. Saltpetre dissolved in water  was tried as an aid 111 removing the  bitterness, but as good results wc.f  secuied without it as with it. Rapidly  and slowly heating milk and cieam to  various high tcmpeiatures did nut ic-  movc bitterness, but often impaited a  cooked taste. Butter made from  washed cream (as above) was pronounced free of all bitterness by the  station custonicis. Butter made fiom  unwashed cream was decidedly bad aaJ  was often rejected by the custonicis  No means wcie found to remove the  bitter vvced taste horn whole milk In  ���the spring of 1902 milk and cream wci e  treated for the wild onion flavor the  same as in the pi cv ions ycai for the  bitter weed taste���Alabama Agucul-  tural Experimental Station.  "Smoked" Glasses for Hay Fever.  A number of remedies ha- e been  tried for hay fever, each based on a  sepaiate thcoiy. Dr. Fiank E Stow-  ell of Woiccster, Mass, liiinscll a victim, became satisfied that the nutating cau-,e vvjs not always the poheu  of a plant. While hunting around tor  another souice ol lioublc, he came to  suspect that the actinic rays of sim-  hlune1, might be to blame. Theieupon  he put on coloied, 01 "smokcvi ^as-,-  cs, and obtained instant relief, lie  is anxious now to have otheis do the  same and rcpoit th�� effect. Inasmuch  as his own tiouble is of the caily summer'variety, he is not sure what the  effect would be on cases of autumnal  hiy fever. Dr. Slow ell etives these ad-  oitional h.uts about fitting the glasses :���  "The patient should feel a sensation  of icla\atiou conic ovci h's face as  soon as he looks thiounh the glasses.  A .id I would suggest that the shads  ot glass used be such 'is to produce  the above. In my case No. 3 was sufu-  ciently dark."  Colic in Ilcracs.  Dr. Smead, the vetcrinaiy authority,  writes regarding colic in horses :���  "It is of grc?t importance in the  ticatment of colic to fust asccitam  what has hi ought on the attack. If it  is due to the consumplion of a quantity of dry food and ihcic is re ison  to believe there is a hardened mass of  dry, undigested feed in the intestines,  common sense will tell us that this  mass neds to be removed.  I /'Therefore, more is needed than  I stimulants Physic is demanded. And  jwl,��t shall this physic be? Shall it be'  aloes? No, because they increase the  secretions of the'mucous membranes,  and are so far good, but not sufficient  to wet up that-.dry mass  What then shall it be? Oil, oil, oil  every time, sufficient to soften up and  emulsify this mass of,/!iy food. How  much? it may be asked. It is difficult  to  say. '  "Start with a pint of pure raw linseed oil (never boiled). Give with a  rouad teaspoonful ol ginger, ?nd if  there is much pain add an ounce of  su'Iphuuc ether, or h'lf an ounce of  hydi-ate of chloial dissolved in water  and  added  "In an hour repeat and continue to  repeat until theie in a natural rumbling of the bovvels. _        ' , I  "Also use the<sjringe by injecting a  gallon of rami, soapy water in the  rectum, and repeat hourly until the  pain succumbs 01 a p-ssage'is made  In bad cases vviing cioth" out of hot :  water and apply ito  ttiV abdomen.  "In cascs-where the attack may'be  due'to the consumption of a quantity  of soft food or to drinking much cold  water, digestion 'is in a mcasui e slopped, and cei tain gases are formed by  chemical action.  "Nothing vviV better neutralize the  gas thus geneiated than half an ounce  of carbonate of ammonia dissolved in  a pint of water and ponied clown from  a bottle. This will relieve the bloat,  and can be repeated hourly.  " Also, if the pain is severe, give the  hydrate of chloial as before recommended with the ginger, and repeat if  necessary cvciy half hour until the  pain is relieved."  Rains and snows assist to a certain  extent in adding fertility to the soil.  In one year rains bring down about  four pounds of ammonia per acre.  Nitric acid, chlonne. sulphuric acid and  ammonia aic all biought to the giouud,  though the amounts are not large.  Banking the caith<around fruit trees  will serve to piotect the roots and also  cause the water to flow away from the  tiees, thereby preventing pools fio.n  forming around the tiees. The ground  being kept diy, tiees wall endure the  cold the better.

I havo now  Eomo for my bride. ' The wedding is flxod  for  next Thursda3';   our  steamer pass-'  ages aie taken n day or tv\o later, and  t find that the authorities will not allow  nie to marry unless I present a multitude of papers such ns f never dreamed  < ,pfl    Some of them it will take montbn  fco     get,    nnd'   "some     I     can     never  - tet.

I am asked for u. baptismal cer��  tilicate���a Taufschcin.    .Now, no fw as  .' 1'know, I was never bapfi?tid.   I am required  to  piesent a  ceitiliuftte  allowing  ' the consent'of my parents to my marriage���I, a man thirty years old, and in  a large .business of my own! - I am a=kej  to'give  bonds, for. the payment of my  Bebts in Germany.   I owe no such debts;  , put I know no one who will give such a  pond.   I am notified that the banns must  be published^ a .certain number of times  before  the  wedding.'   What  kind  of  a  bountry is this, anyhow?'  "Wo.did the best wo could.

"Y-a-a-s, I ad-  ,nire Roosevelt very much," drawled Mr.  Reed; "I admiro him very much, indeed.'  What I admire most about him is his  jnthusiasin over his discovery of the  1'en Commandments."

A delightful literary find must be credited to the authority of a recent book,  "Sidelights on Charles Lamb." Dining  ene day with a friend and being pressed  to take some rhubarb pie, Lamb declined  because ifrwas physic. "That may be,"  Baid his host, "but it is pleasant and innocent." "So is a daisy," rejoined Lamb,  "but I don't therefore like daisy pie."  "Daisy pie I Who ever heard of daisy  pies?" said someone at the table. "My  authority is Shakespeare," Lamb replied.

The prosecution there  rested, and Lincoln, addressing the court  and the jury, announced that he had no  defence to submit .except an almanac,  which "would show' that theie was no  moon on that night.

Thor4  A well-known theatrical manager/who  is distinguished rather for his business  ability than for his-knowledge of literature, was visited not long ago by an  aspiring playwright.' He had with him,  he explained to the manager, the manuscript of a p{ay based on one of Edgar  Allen Roe's stories, which ha was sure  was destined to make a sensational'hit  on the-stage., The manager'consented to  hear the play, and listened with increasing interest as the playwright read from  his 'manuscript. "He was enthusiastic  when the end was reached. "That's fine!"  he exclaimed���-"fine! Now, I'll tell you  what I'll do: You and Mr. Poo come In  to-morrow and we'll talk this thing  over."  Count Tolstoi does not bear a very  kindly attitude toward the many curious  a'timirers who besiege his Russian home  in the hope of getting a glimpse of the  great novelist. A party of visiting Am-,  erican tourists who called not long ago  to pay their respects were not, therefore,  very cordially received. Tolstoi refused  to meet them; but he reluctantly consented to stand on his doorstep and let  himself be seen. One of the vis'tms, however, could not resist the temptation to  *peak to the great man. "Oh. Count  Tolstoi," she exclaimed effusi\ely, approaching the author with out-tretched  hnnd, "1 enjoyed your last book so  much!" "You refer, I suppose/' leplicd  Tolstoi, "to 'Dead Souls'?"

That Sir Henry Irving is quite capable  of maintaining Lis dignity under somewhat trying circumsiances is shown by  the following anecdote which is told of  the tragedian by Mr. C. R. Kennedy of  the "Everyman" company. On one occasion Irving's company, having been  called to the theater for rehearsal, found  upon their arrival that they were considerably ahead of time. As Sir Henry  had not yet arrived, one of the actors in  tho company, who was noted fo-r his accomplishments as a mimic, proceeded to  jive a lively and elaborate imitation of  Sir Henry's highly characteristic acting.  As ho finished his demonstration, a well-  known voico came from the depths of  the darkened auditorium: "Very good,"  It said. "Very good indeed! So good,  In fa<it, that there is no need for both of  Us in this company."  Lincoln's greatest legal triumph was  the acquittal of an old neighbor named  f)uiT Armstrong, who was.charged with  I'Our Prison Systems.  '  Tho sav.xg-ery of our prison systems,' as  thoy  existed   previously   to   the   time  of  John Howard, says The Literary Digest,  appears  to   havo  been   so, far  mitigated  that that great prison roformer might be  considerably astonished If he eould visit  some of pur American-penal Institutions'  of the present day.    Wo learn from the  Mississippi papers tliat-'lt Is'no uncommon  thlnj?  for  convicts who escape from  the  Mississippi Penitentiary  to  the  inhospitable outside world to come back and ask  to be admitted again;  and the Pennsylvania papers aro filled  with accounts of  the  discovery  of  a- nounterfellliiff   plant  that has been running for months In tho  Eastern Penitentiaiy, in Philadelphia, and  which had escaped, the notice of the prison attendants.   It had escaped,their notice  so completoly, Indeed, so the papers say,  that  they   unsuspectingly   received   from  the prisoners large numbers of the dimes,'  quarters and half-dollars  turned  out by  this   rival "Philadelphia  mint,   and   spent  them In the city until Philadelphia  was  "flooded wi'th them."'   The counterfeiting  business was carried,on by the convicts  mainly "to pass away the time," so The  Philadelphia "Inquirer thinks, as they had  nothing else to do.'  In' a* prison  there is  a great deal of time to pass, .ind the re-_  collection  of  the old  saying about  time  and money might easily suggest the passing of the latter.    Most of the prisoners  engaged in the counterfeiting .lie sj.id to  have been emplovea In the plumbing department,  learning to  become  plumbers,  and the material for the coins is thought  to   have  been   obtained   by   them1,     'i'no  counterfeiting was   carried   on  at  night,  when, only the night watchman, who was  formerly-a Philadelphia-policeman,' was  supposed to be on duty.   The newspapers  comment   very   seveiely   on   the ,pi-JSoni  management, and the critics of the Republican State administration profess to  see a connection between the alleged mis-  government of the State and tlie dereliction of the prison officials.   The Washing-  'ton1 Post remarks satirically :���"Inmates  of   the   Pennsylvania   penitentiary   have  been robbing the State with just as much  daring as though they were outside and  holding office."  A.Dutch Proposal.  The Dutch propose to reclaim the whole  of the Zuyder Zee from' the grasp. of  the ocean, says Walter Wellman, in Me-  Clure's Magazine. It is a vast, a daring,  project, the most picturesque engineering  enterprise known to the world to-day. An  isthmian canal mayrcost more money," but  an Isthmian canal is,"^ after all, only a  great ditch. While other nations > are  seeking colonial expansion, tho Dutch  propose to create a hinterland at home.  They propose to reclaim from the waters an area equal to one-fourteenth pf  all tho present Holland. They propose to  add nearly one-tenth to the 'area of cultivable land In their country. They propose to find new homes, where now th-o  sea rages, for a population equal to i per  cent, of all the inhabitants of the Netherlands. In the United States an enterprise of relative proportions would "involve the creation of a new State like  Missouri or Texas, the reclamation ,of  land enough for more than three millions  of people to live upon and thrive by agriculture.  Freedom of Women.  At the annual meeting of the Girls'  Friendly Society held recently in London  Mrs. Creighton, the widow of the lata  Bishop of London, delivered an address.'  In the course of hei lecture she emphasized a needed warning in discussing tho  changed conditions of lite among wr>men  of all classes. Tho increased liberty which  girls and women enjoy has, she claimed,  resulted in large numbers leading absolutely objectless lives. This was especially tho case In those belonging to the  great middle classes. The sense of individual responsibility needed to be cultivated by each one In whatever station of  life her lot was cast, otherwise instead  of being a blessing, tho freedom now enjoyed by women would prove tho source  of Incalculable mlschleC lo tho moral fibre  of the female character In tho present  and future generations.  A clergyman, somewhere by tho se��  has expreEBed Ms displeasure be-  jause some of the .women who  3omo to his church. have fallen into a  mmmer habit of coming without their  )ats. He has cited St.' Paul as his au-  .hority for declaring {from his pulpit  '.hat women ought-to keep-their heads  jovered in church. They certainly look  7ery nice with their heads covered 'as  our church-going sisters are wont to  cover them, but it seems reasonably  doubtful whether St. Paul, if he had been  .managing a seaside church in the United  States in this year of grace, would have  thought it expedient to raise this question of millinery. In the matter of women's headgear the times have changed  very much, and in nineteen hundred  years both the cost and the disbractive-  ness of women's hats have momentously  Increased. It was the fashion in Oriental Galilee in St. Paul's time for women  to  keep  their  heads   covered in   public  Elaces. So is"it the'fashion'hero now,  ut circumstances alter cases. Tliat our  Women have recently consented to take  off their hats in the theaters has been  hailed aa a merciful, concession, but tho  theaters aro as public as the churches,  and no reason suggests itself .why what  is good form in, the one place shouldn't  be good form in the other.

Tho Declaration of Independence is to  be seen no more by the public, an order  having been issued that hcncefoith tho  historic munuscript shall be kept under  lock and key in a great fire and light-  proof safe.

In European papers, to the* effect  that the Mohammedans of Asia and Af-  ' rica were making an effoit to sink their  differences, and present a, united front  against the inroads of Christianity. The  enrqity between tlie two great sects of  Islam, the Sunni and the Shia. lias for  generations  been  as bitter and  virulent -  ��� as  that   between'any  two  branches    of"  ��� Christendom at any time In its history,  ,and It would seem impossible that   tins  animosity could' be quelled. Moreover."  the Mohammedans have no means'of intercommunication, 'no "religious.newspapers, nor other method of moulding public opinion and bringing scattered peoples to think alike on any subject. ' The  great focus of intercommunication, the  Mecca pilgrimage, is losing its influence.  Its numbers' are steadily diminishing, and  last year it was altogether prohibited by  Government, on account of the plague.  It appears,  however, says Public Opinion, that neither   missionaries   nor   publicists may have given sufficient importance to one uniting force, tho fraternities  which  are  rapidly  springing  into  being  among   Mohammedans.     Professor   Nal-  lino of Naples has recently published in  a Geneva paper an article upon the "Present   Tendencies   of  Islamism,"   treating  of these fiatornlties as a movement   demanding  serious  attention.    It    appeals  that theso orders existed a century ago,  but have been suspected and opposed by  orthodox Mussulmans, who deemed them  to be  opposed   by  the  Koran.    Even as  recently as 1S40 only about B per pent, of  the Mohammedans of the Sahara belonged to them.   But the conquest of Algeiia.  and the ensuing contact with the abhor-  .red "Roumis" (Roman Catholics or Christians)  not only aroused a new effervescence of zeal  through ail  Mohammedan,  Africa, but gave a preponderant importance  to   the   hitherto   despised   fraternities.    Now, ProfOKSos- Nallino savs, fully  S3 per cent, of the Arabs of   North Africa are affiliated with one or another of  these tratoinitles, and in all ot them religious zeal Is kept alive by hatred of tho  Christians.    Thus   pan-Tslamism,    which  even ten years ago was a mero Utopia,  may now become at almost any moment  a  reality.    It  would  suffice   for  half   a  score   of   tho   great   chiefs,   meeting   at  Mecca at tho time of the pilgrimage, to  agree   upon   time   and   method,   and  all  Islim, from the Atlantic to tho Milayan  archipelago,  would unite  in an uprising  against Christians.

Practically no change is made in  tire monthly assessment levied on  members under 55; the cost to them  being as low as 65 cents per #1,000  at ages i8,to'25, furthei they" can  by transferring to a level premium  plan escape the high rate at 55.  The new rate is a/ guaranty  pledge, or $30,000,000", - by the  younger members to members ovet  55 years, and is practically a fraternal assessment to prevent the  "freezing out of old members of the  Order.

At last, when the hoise could no longer endure his cramped and uncomfoi table  attitude, he would c��t a final lepioich  ful glance at his puzzled mastei, and, as  if abandoning all hope fiom that qu,i  ter, woald scramble to his feet and pio  cccd en his way like any oidmary horse  .The doetoi  was finally obliged to use a  patent"harness without bieeching  Aladdin's only other lepreliensible trait  avas his custom of dancing to the musk  of the Cloveily band.   Whenever the doc  tor's business took him to Cloveily, h<  found it expedient, alter his fust e\pcn  ence with Aladdin's walt/mg hoofs, tv  enquire by telephone if  hiena was an^  likelihood that "the band m'ght appea,  upon the streets that day.  " If, by any'chance, it happened to he r  gala day, t'he doctor would turn Aladdiu  out to-grass", and would drive the aucieni  colt; for a summer of idleness had mucti  .improved that misnamed animal.  County fair week was approaching, and  as usual the Bronsons were short of  ready money. Cicely, w ith Iter elbows on  the table, spent se\eial -evenings 'ovci  calculations in,domestic economy, foi hei  autumn waidiobe was in need of leplen  ishing. She had little tune for enibroi-i  ���eay, and the only thing she had evei  paanted was, as she said laughingly, the  front fence. - '      ^  "No," she saJd, "I'm afraid thi3 family  doesn't boast a eingle cdubitable po=  session, unless���  Father!"   ��  "What is it?" asked the doctor, looking up hastily from his book.  ���"Could you possibly get along with  nothing tut the .eOlt to drive all next  week?"  "1 suspect I shaE have to^" returned  the doctor. "All tlie brass bands in th<  county are coming foi the fair. Aladdin dances pretty well for a horse, but  it's haid on the buggy."  . "Then," si.id Cicely, giving tar fathei'-  hand an enthusiastic squeeze, "if you  don't mind^we'Il exhibit him at the fun  as a carriage Iioise. They oirer beautiful  prizes in the horse dopaitment. I'm sine  there isn't a more noticeable horr.e in the  country, so thoie's no danger of hia  being overlooked."  Aladdin did indeed attract much atlen'  tion at the fair. To be sine, the jwlga~  were lather inclined at fust to soofl at  him because of lus gaudy extciior; but  partly because theje was %ery little /competition, and partly because he possessed  certain fine points not appicciated bv\  the careless observei, he was fulallj  awarded a second pn/c.  "I'm glad,' said Mrs. Bronson, when  sho heard of it, "that we have one financier in the family "  Before the week wao over, howevei  even Mrs. Bionson was willing t/> admit  that the family contained two. The tlin/.  Bionsons bpent Friday afternoon at the  fair, going fiist of all to visit their sue  tcssful exhibit. Even w ith his seal let  ribbon, Aladdin looked far fiom beautiful; but Cicely felt the crisp pink pie  roiam cheque in her pocket, and swelled  with pride.  "Is this your hoise?" asked a man,  stepping up and torn lung hia cap leopu r  fully.  "Ycb," said CJcelv, who was for the  moment alone. "At least, it'b iny fath-  ei's."

Thomas   A.

'  Mr. Edison's theory eliminates thu  contradiction of acce��ted natural laws,  and indicates the possibility that the en.  ergy emitted by. radium is merely reflected, o.s it were, from some unknown  source.?' " .       .  "I have made extensive  experiment,  with the Roentgen ray and .with radium," said Mr. Edison to a representative  of "Harper's Weekly," "and have com.  to the conclusion that"- these new substances are not the- sources of  energy,  but are rendered fluorescent by the action of some hitherto undetected efchei  Vibration or ray.   Just as the Roentgen  ray and the Iler/aam wave lemcined un  dreamed of foi cenluries after the phenomena of sound, light and heat vcr��  well undeistood, so  it is not only pos  sible but extiemely  probable that th��Ti  are  other lays  in  the immense  gamut  from sound to ultii-violet which we have  not yet discoveicd     In my own e\pen  ments I have  found  that  the  ordinary  elcctiie aie when raised to an extiemcly  high tempeiature gnes off Ji'iay which  renders oxalate of lithium highly iluoies  cent.   In the same way the Roentgen lay  renders  platinum-baiyum cyanide, _ tung  state of calcium, and  cupip-cyanide oi  potasdum   highly   fluoiescent���that   is,  the X ray sets up in these substances a  condition of activity whicli results in the  emission from them of actinic lays and a  small amount of heat.  "My' theory of radio-activity is that  the. rays winch the new'elements emit  are set up in the same way, the-sub  stances being rendeied fluorescent bj  some form ot ether \ibration which is  undoubtedly all-pcrvadmg, but Iras not  yet been isolated or measured, and which  may have some extra-planetary origin  To accept any other theory is to decline  one's belief in perpetual motion, in get  ting something fori nothing.  "It is not at all stiange that only two  or three substances have yet been found  which exhibit this phenomenon, as theu  aie only three substances known whicl  are rendeied fluorescent by the Roent  "en ray. It is a peculi.ii>( coincidence  moreover, that the only one of the known  fluoiescent substances that is ever fount"  in its natural state, tung-state of cal  cium, is always more or less closely as  sociated with pitchblende, fiom which  all the radium so far made has been c\  tracted.  "I believe this theory is capable ,ol  proof, but I shall be content to let some  one else pro\e it. I am thioiigh foi al  time with expeinnonts in ladio-actiyity  Two of my assistants have been maimed  for life by th^ir close association witl  the Roentgen rays, nnd 1 myself hav<  one eye badly out of focus and am suiter  ing from severe stomach disturbance!  fiom the same cause.
