Lead Cases Used to Protect the Kayo
1 tha Strang Substance.
Radium la such a strange substance
that but few person lu nil tbe world
ate erfectly fumlllur wltb It and Ita
peculiar properties.
It throws off a peculiar ray of light,
and if out protected It will In time ex
hnuRt Itself, going no one knows ex
actly where.
Its emanations are such that there
Is but one known substance through
which it cannot pass, and that Is pure
For some time the problem of com
plete protection against Its own loss
through emanations and the possible
loss by burglars was a puzzle to scien
tists and mechanics, but Anally safe
was constructed In London with an
Inner cell of lend about three inches
In thickness, surrounded . by a specially
prepared outer safe, which Is said te
be a perfect safe for radium.
The strange stuff la stored in those
safes and guarded wltb extreme care,
as it la of great value.
Tbe safe door is round and so ad
Justed aa to make It' possible to dis
close any slight defect that might be
caused by tbe use of the opening, and
In tbe Inner portion of the door are
openings through which tubes con
taining mercury can be placed to col
lect any emanations resulting on the
Interior during the confinement of the
curious substance. Mercury collects
the emanations and prevents loss In
that directlon.-Los Angeles Times.
Ths Progreit Must Go on, and tho
Misery May Bo Modified.
Many of tbe inventions of civiliza
tion have their unhygienic side. Tbe
Invention of bouses has enabled man
kind to dwell In all parts of the world,
but It Is responsible for tuberculosis,
especially after glass was devised,
which, whUo letting In the light, keeps
out the air. Tbe invention of the al
phabet and printing has made possible
tbe accumulation of knowledge, but it
bas produced eye strain, wltb all Its
attendant evils.
Tbe Invention of chairs has added to
human convenience, but It has led to
spinal curvature and abdominal con
gestion. Tbe device of a division of
labor has added to wealth, but has
destroyed tbe normal balance of men
tal and physical work, recreation and
rest. Similar fault may be found wltb
clothing, especially corsets, shoes and
bats, and wltb nuni-rona other con
trivances. Tet it would be foolish, even If it
were possible, to attempt to "return
to nature" In the sense of abolishing
civilization. We must not go back
ward, but forward. The cure for eye
strain Is not In disregarding the inven
tion of reading, but introducing tbe
Invention of glasses. Tbe cure of tu
berculosis Is not In the destruction of
houses, but In devices for ventilation.

A number of people In Scotland

of these Is so prollllc In pearl bearing

After Thirteen Years In Havana Har
bor Ruins Are Brought to Light.
The truth as to tbe cause of tbe ex
plosion which wrecked tho battleship
Maine In Havana harbor on Feb. 15,
1SH8. and cost 259 lives is soon to be
known. The work of bringing tb
ruins to light bas progressed to a
point where It is ouly a matter ot
days until tbe spertH cuu explore
When tbe water in the cofferdam em
ployed in baring the wreck hud bee a
lowered t a depth of seven feet a
superficial observation was made pos
sible, and steel ribs bent apart, decks
upheaved and hurled far from their
original position, bulkheads crumpled
like sheets of paper and apparently
Inextricable and hardly Identifiable
masses of construction muterlul proved
that the shattering of the hull of the
battleship was far greater than has
been supposed.
At tbe time of the explosion the
opinion was general that the Malno
had been sunk by a Spanish mine lu
retaliation for the efforts of the Unit
ed States iu behalf of Cuba, then an
oppressed Spanish possession. Now,
however, the popular belief Is that
Spain had nothing to do with the .dis
aster. Spanish and American commissions
bad divers examine the wreck. The
Spanish commission reported that au
Internal explosion sank tho ship. Tho
American conclusion was that the ship
was destroyed by the explosion ot a
submarine mine, but did not fix the
It took a long while to get congress
to act on the proposition to raise the
wreck, nnd this delay was responsible
for the suggestion that there was
something to conceal lu connection
with the battleship's fate. At length
congress showed that It wasn't afraid,
and the facts so long hidden In Ha
vana's muddy harbor are about to be
come known.
The Bteel foremast of the old battle
ship, which weighs about ten tons,
will be shipped to Governors Island.
The remainder of the wreck will be
given an honorable sea burial.
There are sixty-three bodies still in
the wreck, and the Cuban authorities
have mado preparations to recvlve
them as fast ns recovered. They will
be taken to Cabana fortress, where
they will be placed In coffins, and
later will be removed to the collier
Leonloa for transfer uorth.
Chemist Asserts He Can Tell All About
One's Osculations.
Kdward Ilelf, a Pittsburg research
chemist, declares that he has discov
ered the real kissing germ a microbe
peculiar to persons, particularly to
women, prone to much kissing.
That ho can tell by a microscopic ex
amination of a tiny pol l Ion of saliva
from n woman's lips whether Hie ha
ever been kissed by a man and ap
proximately how often Is the astonish
ing declaration made by Mr. Keif.
This applies equally to men, he says.
Any woman who brings lo Mr. Kelt
a teacup that has touched the lips can
find out If her husband lias been kiss
ing other women.
"The microbes of each person have a
different characteristic," savs Mr, Rclf.
" man who does much kissing has
big microbes, the woman who does
much kissing has big microbes, and
so on."
Mr. Helf. who Is a University ot
Pittsburg graduate, discovered the
strange microbe accidentally. As to
the actual and material results from
Mr. Keif's discovery there Is only omr'
drawback -the cost of examination Is
a bit expensive, about $10.
