Kridenees That It Is In the Atmosphere,
Its Efl'ect Upon Individual*���The Benefits Which It Will Iu the Near Future
Bestow Upon Mankind.
It is a scientific fuctthat the atmosphcro
oontains moi-o or less electricity at all
times. Over a century ago Benjamin
Franklin gave a practical demonstration
of this truth by drawing a, current of electricity from thc upper atmosphere through
a kite. Other-experiments of a similar
nature resulted in tho death of several ex-
pcr! mentors, they having unwisely lost
-light ot the fact that it was necessary to
Dure some protection in the shape of,insulation in case of an overcharge.
These- experiments have proved beyond
iloubt that electricity may bo drawn from
the atmosphere by simple means, all of
which have been long understood and are
quite natural; moreover, we know that it

atmospheric conditions Chan others Dry

may never lie possible to obtain a constant
lor any given elevation, but it is pos��if>h
to so govern the current drawn from tin
jlouds or a clear sky by passing it to c.-ii-tl.
through lightning arresters or possibly re
���iistance coils that by the lime it reaches
the desired point its potential would be so
i-edtved as to allow its charge to be utiii/.eil
in charging'storage batteries
Now, it may bo said that under the
most adverse conditions tho current would
be found too weak to bo of value, but 1
��� believe that even under such condition*
there would bo suflicient electricity gath
ered to continue- in force that previously
stored without failure or loss of power
provided the capacity of storing is sufficient to meet thc wants of an emorgencv
ot this character
This'would provide against the unstable
atmospheric element, and, the periods and
conditions under which its greatest vol
uiiwj exists being known, extra precaution
and provision niust bo made for storing for
f 11 turd use.
It is contended by some that the ocean
affords the best facilities for gathering and
'storing this valnablo power. -I contend
that, although tho ocean may be the better x-iinductor, it would bo more difficult
w/  o ���.�����_�� * %s

Besides, there ureiii addition to be gathered

crated by the tl-ousinds of dynamos, etc.,
which is ol itself today a vast power and
is hardly utilized btiore the power is lost.
There is nothing to prove that a current

Have you  ever thought of   tho great
volume of electricity  which  our atmos
phero   contains?   We  inhale  with   overy
breath  u sullicient quantity to strengthen
and  invigoi-ate us    lt is one of  tbe mest,
important   elements.    There   is   an  ebb
.. ind. flood w-avo to our atmosphere which
is similar  in   its   action to  the  tides of
the; ocean.    Its  maximum   pressure oe
curs   at   certain   hours of  the   day and
night and its minimum at opposite hours
When the  pressure U at its minimum the
electrical force of our  bodies is least, anal
at such  times we are greatly  enervated |
and weakened, and at periods of excessive
luinn.lity similar effects in our  physical
condition 'may. bo observed..   .'When..the ut-
mosphero is, thoroughly saturated,1 it is a
more, perfect  conductor, and  tho current
readily leaves us for that offering the least
resistance.    All  these forces tend to show
.ind   prove  that, there is an electrical  dis
charge from i��io substance to another, and
fully demonstrates that it needs but the
oest conductor to gather aiul 11   proper ra
cept.-.cle to  store the  electric fluid   whicij
constantly surrounds us
Several experimenters, are already em
ployed in devising a plan for gathering
and storing atmospheric electricity, and I
am, confident from tho progress already
attained in this lino that it will not bo
many years before atmospheric electricity
can be properly stored and utilized, taking
the place of nil lighting, heating and motor power employed at the present day
The possibilities mill uses to which thii
power may bo applied are innumerable I
ox pec t to seo it used in every house in as
,'mpio n manner as gas or water, so that
,t shall be within the reach of the pour as
well as the wealthy
The earth and atmosphere were given to
men. mice and bugs for useful purposes;
the earth has responded to many of their
w.in ts. and now, as scionc:1 progresses and
we are becoming more enlightened, the
possibilities of atmospheric t|tialities and
iiuuntities are open for experiment.���R
