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 lead. 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. PROGRESS AND MISERY. 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. Dr. Irving Fisher In New Vork Chris tian Advocate. Scottish Pearls. A number of people In Scotland make u livelihood by searching for the precious stones which are occasionally to bo found ensconced In the Interior of fresh water mussels. To a lesser extent It Is also carried out on some English and Welsh si renins, but none of these Is so prollllc In pearl bearing as the northern rivers. There ore au thentic records of Scottish pearls be ing found which rlvnled any tbe orient bus produced so far as translu cency and (lawlessness are concerned. A writer of the eighteenth century Kates thai '.'0,000 was a moderate es lluiute of the value of pearls then fish ed annually from Scottish rivers, while It is a matter of history that a German who formed a syndicate of Ushers in INtlft acquired stones to the value of 12.000 In that year alona Ilut the Industry Is not so remunera tive nowaday a.

Tbe dread ot premature burial haunted Harriet Martlueau. who would certainly not be classed as a fanciful person, and she bequeathed 10 to her doctor to see that her body wan decupllated before burial. Ed mund Yates In his will stipulated that his jugular vein should be severed and left '-'0 to pay for the operation. Lady Rurton took even stronger pre cautious. 8he enjoined that ber heart should be pierced with a needle before auy steps were taken to certify ber death and that ber body should after ward le submitted to a postmortem examination. lxndon Chronicle, Lucky or Not, "Eve was really a very lucky wom an." remarked Mr. Henpeque.

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 them. 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 responsibility. 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. FINDS KISSING MICROBE. 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. BUYS HOUSE FOR BABY.
