Radium mining In tho Paradox Val ley of Colorado haB developod a very curious by-product In tho shape of -mn unlooked-for cure for rheumatism. Tho government buroau of mines haa recently undertaken to suporvlso tho working of somo G7 radium mlnoa In that valley, which contain the most Important dopoBltn of radlum-boarlng oro in tno wonu ine oro is a yoi lowlah mineral known as "Carnotlto." and occurs In "pockots" aaBoclated with uranium and vanadium. It haa been found that the men en caged in working these deposits, If they happen to nufferora from rheu matism, are cured of the malady. Not only that, but their general health aeoms to be benefited in a romarkablo way. ThlB Is u matter of no small Im portance Whllo radium Itself Is the most costly thing In the world, being worth over $2,500,000 an ounce, tho oro from which it Is taken Is by no meanB bo procioua that anybody of moderate moaiiH could not afford, to buy and keep on hand a oonsidorable quantity of it. It takes a ton of "carnotlto" to pro duce a bit of radium no biggor than the head of a pin; and tho cost of the radium Is duo mainly to the difficulty of tho processes Involved in extract ing It, Perhaps if the sufferor from rhou mathim wero to keop a few pounds of "carnotlte" by him he would experi ence rollef. Tho matter, of course, Is wholly one of speculation as yet There Is no question of the faot that radium la good for rheumatism. It has boon used very successfully In tho treatment of this distressing troublo, tho method commonly adopted being to allow the patient to breathe tho emanations of tho mysterious minora through a rubber tube entering th nostrils Lcfthandednesa a 8taln? A German philosopher, Dr. Ewald ,8tier, haB Bet himself with true Teu Itonlo thoroughness to discover tho In iwardnosB of being lofthanded, remarks 'the New York Independent. Accord 'lng to the modern fashion, he begins far back, in fact, with tho monkeys, jwhich, he Bays, aro completely ambi sextrous, there being no signs of right lhandod or lefthanded Individuals .among thorn Tlio examination of tools and Implements of the stone and bronzo agos leads Doctor Stler to be lieve that, in prehistoric times, per haps one-half of the population was lofthanded. Modern lefthanded people ho looks at uBkance, as a kind of ro vorslon to stono age manners, as rem inants of a variety of homo sapiens In process of extinction. The characteristics of lefthanded people as a wholo give them, in his eyos, an unfavorable, even a degen erate aspect, and he pours ridicule on tho attempt to revort to tho ambldex tery of monkey times, which is now at. tempted In our training schools.

Tho more striking of these new animals are two early mastodons, one of which Is large and the skeleton complete; one very largo sabre-toothed tiger, tho first of Its kind found upon this continent; one fossil horse, which is easily one third larger than any of its kind found hitherto; one extra large and interest ing turtle with horny ornamentations, and numerous animals of smaller size. Tho bulk of this material Is now freed from rock, and by June It will be on exhibition. One slab just worked out yielded twolvo great vertobreao and ribs of tho new mastodon with ribs attached.
