"P' RAYS MAY FIND MINERAL
Apparatus Invented br i Florentine
for War Slay Find Wider
Tho experiments made In France In Au
gust last and In Italy during" the last few
months by the Florentine Inventor, UUvi,
In regard to exploding deposits of powder
without contact by means of the so
called "F" rays, have been duly chron
icled In tho newspapers, says tho United
i i . r-t . . i .1 m .7 n.nit.i. A
none a magazine or a mine ai consider
able distances Is conceded to have a high
vnluo as a weapon of war; and that Is
probably the primary value of the dis
covery. However, the Inventor has stated
that the greatest value of his Invention
will ultimately be found In a purely com
mercial field, namely, the locating of
mineral deposits in the earth.
The secret of tho apparatus lies, of
course, with the Inventor, but he has
given some general Information In regard
to the operation of the "F" rays. The
aparatus n used by Ullvl is equipped
with resonators. Tho "F" rays directed
or aimed by the apparatus cause the
jefconators to sound tones which vary In
accordance with the body through which
the rays pass. In his experiments In set
ting off explosives by means of the "F"
lays, Ullvl has specialized on the note
or tono given out by the apparatus when
tho rays encounter the explosive and Its
(untalner. The sounding of the note gives
him tho accurate direction, after which
tho rays nro Intensified or focused, so
to speak, until the explosion occurs. Par
enthetically it might be added that the
' F" rays, under the Ullvl system, are
valueless against explosives which cannot
le fired by Ignition.
in me courso oi tnese experiments uiivi
has discovered that each metal encoun
tered by tho rays has a distinctive tone
on the resonators, which tone varies In
ncoidanee with tho character, volume
and density of tho body of metal encoun
tered. The Inventor believes that an ap
paratus of tho type now used by him,
perfected with a view to accurately
classifying different metals and their
volumes, could bo employed with certainty
In tho exploration of mineral land and In
locating oro Bearing ledges. At present
ftlvl is entirely occupied with tho mili
tary and naval value of his Invention,
and it Is Impossible for him to give any
attention to the commercial .possibilities
of his discovery, but it hus been suggested
lo him that for an apparatus capable of
discovering mineral In land and of ap
proximating the mineral bearing value
thereof a market might readily be found
In the United States.

matter will be settled Monday and that
the place will go to Fred Mower or

friends and much support. Dean Ringer,
It Is thought, will be attorney for tho
board to succeed A. C. Pancoast, who
will not be a candidate to succeed him
self. After the organization of the board there
will be the letting of contracts, Including
much painting and Interior decorating
work. Tho contracts will run well In the
thousands and many of the contractors of
tho city aro expecting to get a chance at
tho bidding. School contracts have al
ways caused moro or less difference.
President E. R. Leigh has expressed the
thought that the board may finally de
cide to buy material and do the work with
its own painter, as Is done in some of tho
other cities. But whatever way the board
decides, Its decision Is being awaited with
much Interest by the small contractors
and labor men.
