True Friendship Heareth All Things
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
The object of love Is to win; the ob
ject of friendship is to serve. So friend
ship is often more daring than love and
may proceed upon a less selfish founda-
Friendihtp belongs to the tame lineage
with loyslty and devotion. It Is based
on principles of honest choosing of the
best in life and It never closes ita eyes
blindly to facts. It asks in the real in
te rests of the person for whom it cares.
It gives, and forgets the gift. U trusts
and Is worthy of trust In return.
Perhape in all the world there Is noth
ing more rare than real friendship. Many
of us call friendship what is merely a
congenial comradeship taken up for sel
fish reasons; perhaps 1o avoid loneliness,
perhapa to have an audience for our own
cleverness, perhaps to have strength on
which to lean. But such so-called friend
ships inevitably prove their own weak
ness because thoy cannot stand the test
of time or hardship.
Sometimes one broken hour cssts asun
der two people who have called them
selves friends. Laughter and tears en
Joyed and endured together are forgot
ten. Services generously accepted and
generously offered no longer count.
No sense of obligation can ever play
a part in a real friendship, no sense of
failure at a given moment can count. If
you have no Instinctive feeling thut the
friend who lias always been loyal will al-
wae be loyal; if you are not loyal to

GARRETT P. SERVISS.
"Will you kindly explain the phlllsophy
of the renewal of power In the case of a
running dynamo? I am, of course,,
aware that the excitation of metals gen
erates the potentiality, but would like to
have ex plained
; whore the ultimate
I whether It is con
stantly erawn from
the earth, or air,
or where. F. D. C."
Here Is a de
finition of a dynamo,
tnken from a text
book, which v. ill
servo to put the
nature of your
clearly before the
m;nd or the aver
age reader, who Is probably familiar with
the name "dynamo" without knowing Just
how the machine so called works:
'.'The dynamo is a machine for con
verting mechanical energy into electrical
energy by means of electro-magnetic
Induction. A dynamo does not create
elect lloity but generates, or produces, an
induced electromotive force which causes
a current to flow through a properly
Insulated system of electrical oonductors
external to It. The amount of electricity
obtainable from such a generator v (the
dynamo) Is dependent upon the me
chanical energy supplied."
For the sake of stiil greater clearness,
it should be added that the "electromo
tive force" generated In the dynamo is
produced by keeping aa eleotrlo conductor
In rapid motion across tha field of action
of a magnet. The saraa effect results if
it is the magnet which' moves while the
conductor remains at rest.
To maintain the motion, mechanical
power must, of course, be expended, and
this fact Is usually regarded as furnish
ing a sufficient explanation of the mys
tery of the origin of the electric current
which flows from the dynamo. As in the.
definition quotod above, tha maintenance
of that current Is ascribed soiely to the
mechanical power expended. But this
explanation ignores the part that the
magnet plays In tha phenomenon, you
might whirl your conductor round by.
mechanical pawer until doomsday with,
out getting a sign of electricity U there
were no magnet at hand with Its invisible
"lines of force," filling the space about
it as they curve round between its polet.
It is the "cutting" of these lines by the
moving conductor that gives rise to the
eloctrlo ourrent.- and the wonder of it is
the the magnet seems never to become
weakened or exhausted. We sea how w
keep up the mechanical power, but we
do not see how the magnet keeps up Its
supply of force undiminished. It re
stores its "cut" unes continuously and
Instantaneously, or keeps their strength
Intact, in spite of the fact that energy Is
being constantly taken from them.
In fact, the magnet exhibits the same
mysterious property quite independent of
Its use in the dynamo. Take an ordinary
bar magnet, which is simply a pieoe of
magnetised steel, and with it you can
magnetise, by mere touch, hundreds of
other bars without apparently diminish
ing the original store of magnetism.
Perhaps the most interesting explana
tion of this mystery is that offered by
Dr. Gustava Le Boll. He believes that
.the Inexhaustible stare from which the
energy is drawn it to be found in the
heart of the atoms of matter. It is
that marvelous thing called "intra
atomic energy," the demonstration of
whose existence is ono of the greatest
additions to human knowledge that has
ever been made. The energy shows Itself
in the bombardment of almost Infinitely
minute projectiles which radium Inflicts
upon its surroundings. '
What radium does conspicuously, there
Is reason to think that all other kinds
ot matter do Imperceptibly. This process,
by which infinitesimal particles called
corpuscles are shot off from the atoms of
material things, is named dissociation.
The corpuscles may be, In effect, nothing
mora - than moving electric charges, but
we have here nothing to do with that
aspect of the question. What immediately
concern us is the probable fact that all
matter tends to turn, or to be trans
formed into a form or state which we
know as energy. Here, then, is the
source from whloh the dynamo draws its
Inexhaustible supply. This Is. the form
In which Dr. Le Bon puts the explana
tion: ."When we sea at work those gigantic
dynamos whence torrents of electric fluid
flow, we should not say that they repre
sent movement transformed into electric
ity. It is simply the lntra-atomlo energy
of dissociated matter which appears
under the form" of electricity."
