scientists arc not delving Into tho
depths of knowledge for tho mere ben

benefit of the world. They place ln
the hands of the well man a meann of
keeping well, in the hands of the sick
man a means of recovery. To the par
ent they give the power nf saving tho
child. Science Is working for you will
you accept the proffered help?

A French engineer has thought It
worth while to calculate the waste en
ergy of the great avalanche of Uemmi
in the Alps, which fell last September,
Ho makes it 1,400 million metre tons,
or, roughly, three times tho samo num
ber of foot tons; that is to say, the en
ergy needed to lift somo threo billion
tons a foot high. The fall lasted a
minute and in that timo developed
about a million horse power. If the
energy could have beenJLurned In to elec
