In dealing with extension in space
we are driven to adopt a similar tie
vice. Owing to the continuity of space
it has no natural divisions capable of
forming a standard unit, and so the
hand, the foot, the arm, have been
adopted as appliances by the use of
which to ascertain quantity of exten
sion. But the device created to ex
press the quantity of extension when
ascertained, is a word chosen to stand
as the symbol of a fixed quantity of
extension, arbitrarily adopted as the
standard unit; and because it is im
possible to deal with extension itself,
we deal with the symbol as if it were
extension. The word chosen in many
cases was originally the name of the
appliance, as "hand," "foot," etc.
But it is to be noted that the term
used does not stand as the symbol of
the appliance, but is the symbol
of a fixed quantity of extension
in space. "Hand" and "foot" when
used to designate those organs of the
human body, stand for things of var
iable length; but used as a symbol to
express quantity of linear extension,
they are constant.
We have a number of these terms,
symbolizing different fixed quantities
of extension in space, as inches, feet,
yards, chains, miles, acres, etc. The
word "yard" is not the symbol of the
implement employed to ascer
tain quantity of length, which has
been taken as a standard unit; but
is the symbol of the Axed and change
less quantity of linear extension in
space through which a yardstick is
approximately capable of extending.
The yardstick may vary in length un
der changing conditions, or become
worn short by use; but neither the
fixec quantity of extension in space,
chosen as the unit, nor the- word
"yard," which stands as its symbol,
can ever vary. Here also, because of
the impossibility of dealing with ab
stract extension, the term chosen as
the symbol becomes itself the stand
ard unit of linear extension in space;
and, aiding it with the numerals, we
use it to express any required quan
tity of extension in space.
Its merit is that it expresses a fixed
and changeless standard unit, which
enables us to express any required
quantity of extension in space, by
saying it is such a multiple, or such a
fractional part, of that fixed quantity
of extension in space symbolized by
the term "yard," thus adopted.
The same conditions require the
creation of analogous devices in order
to deal with the various modes of
manifestation of Force. The number
of these devices has increased as in
vestigation has disclosed new modes
of manifestation of force. Gravita
tion has been long recognized, and
systems of weights have come down
to U3 from remote times. On the
other hand, no devices for expressing
quantity of light, heat, sound, elec
tricity, etc., were known to the an
cients, because these were either not
recognized as modes of force or were
The framers of the constitution of
the United States unwittingly disclose
the ignorance of the age in which they
lived, by the provision for fixing the
"standard of weights and measures,"
thus ignoring all except gravitation,
space and time. Gravitation is the
onl mode of force, whose quantity is
expressed in a term of "weight." The
"degree" of heat; the "horse-power"
of steam; the "candle-power" of light;
the "volt" of electrical force were not
provided for in that instrument, for
the reason that the necessity for them
was unknown to its framers.
No eye has seen a "volt," and all
that can be said of it is, that it is a
"volt." It cannot be expressed by the
terra of "weight;" neither can it bj
expressed by the terms of linear,
square or cubic measures, if we di
rect our attention to the mode of
force called gravitation, we observe
that its specific effect we call
"weight." Weight is the form of our
apprehension of the action of gravi
tation on ponderable bodies. When
we attempt to deal with weight, we
are compelled to adopt a device by
means of which to express quantity
of the force of gravitation, which to
us, when "weighed" is weight found
present in any given case.
A fixed and unvarying quantity of
the force of gravitation, thus appre
hended as weight, has been chosen and
has had applied to it the name or
term, "pound;" and that word has
become the symbol of the quantity of
"weight" chosen as the standard unit
of weight. Because it is impossible
to deal with the quantity of weight
(thus arbitrarily chosen) in itself, the
word which stands as the symbo,.
of the chosen quantity of weight is
dealt with as if it were itself a fixed
quantity of the force of gravitation;
and by means of the symbol so chosen,
aided by the numerals, we express ev
ery quantity of weight, as such a
fractional part of, or so many times
the standard quantity taken as the
unit, and for which the symbol stands.
Now, it must be borne in mind
that we are not here considering the
various appliances or instruments
used to ascertain quantity of the mod'!
of force at any time in question, or
of the quantity of extension in space
or duration in time. We are consid
ering that which makes the use of
appliances intelligible, by affording
a device by means of which to express
or utter a fixed and determinate quan
tity of each. In every instance the
quantity of force, of extension, or of
duration, which is taken as a basis or
"standard unit," is symbolized by a
word or term, which stands always for
a fixed quantity of that which it sym
bolizes; and all comparisons are made
with this standard unit, aided by the
numerals. In every case the quantity
under investigation is necessarily
either equal to, or a multiple c-f, or a
fractional part of the fixed quantity
Thus we express mathematically
how many times greater than the
standard unit the quantity under in
vestigation is, or that it is equal to
it, or how many times less than that
standard unit it is; but we never can
know absolutely how great a quantity
that standard unit is because the na
ture of human intelligence precludes
absolute knowiedge of anything.
Compared with a greater quantity, the
quantity symbolized as the standard
unit is small; compared with smaller
quantity, it is great. A yard, an
acre, a day, a pound, a horse-power,
a volt, each symbolizes a quantity of
extension, duration, or force, that can
be expressed by the use of the chosen
symbol and cannot otherwise be ut
tered. (Continued Next Week.)

The milling trust has sent out no
tices announcing 10 per cent advance
in flour with an intimation that an
other rise in price may be soon ex
pected. That is fulfilling The Inde
pendent's prediction ahead of time. If
coal can be handled to suit the trust,
why not flour, The Independent asked,
but it predicated such action on a
short crop. The milling trust didn't
wait for a short crop.
Edmond Thery and Yves Guyot, two
French economists, in 1897 bet a din
ner on the prices of silver and gold
by the end of 1902. Thery believed a
kilogram of gold would be equal in
value to sixteen kilograms of silver
the world over and of course lost.
The dinner was given at Durand's res
taurant, Paris, a day or two ago.
Frederic Passay. Sir Donald Wallace,
and Molinari Caillaux, were among
the guests. A lively debate ensued.
