RIOIUM'S USE IN SURGERY
Its Rays So Powerful That They Can
Destroy the Useless or Dis
The use of radium In hospitals U
becoming more and more demanded
by the medical profession. Tho Sci
entific American, In telling of Its med
ical and surgical uses, explains that
It Is a tool end not a medicine. The
radium gives off three rays, known as
the alpha, beta and gamma rays. Tho
first, about 85 per cent of the total ray
force, can be stopped by tissue paper;
the second will penetrate 35 millimeters
of lead, while the third has a vibra
tion himllnr to the X-ray. This my
Is the one used In surgery.
The rays are sent Into the body,
and so powerful nro they that they
can penetrate to a great depth, and
there destroy the useless or dlsensed
tissue. As the good tissue has a
greater resistance than the bad, the
highly skilled operative can boor the
gamma rays on the olulcted part until
they hegln to destroy the good tis
sue, when the treatment must stop.
Knew What Was in Danger.
A couple of darkles were digging o
hole in hurd ground under u side

hole, held a small Iron pipe upright
upon the end of which the other pound
ed with n largo sledge In order to
loosen up tho dirt. Tho sledge wield
or swung the heavy tool rather reck
lessly and It looked as though he might
miss at any moment nnd strike his
comrade's head, Just below. A pass
ing white man muttered: "Better be
more careful, Tom, or you'll bring that
sledge down on Andy's head."
"All right, boss," replied tho sledge
swinger. "Ah'U be more careful; dlr
am de only sledge we got." New
