Theory What Prof C V BoyS termed the miracle of radium has naturally received much attention in London scien tiflc circles At a recent meeting of the science branch of the British aseocia tion Lord Kelvin In a paper which he read made an interesting suggestion In connection with Its perpetual emission of heat at according to M Curies cal culation a rate of about 90 centigrade calories per gramme per hour He said that if the emission of heat at this rate went on for 10000 hours there would be as much heat as would raise the temperature of 900000 gramme of water one degree centigrade It seemed utterly impossible to Lord Kelvin that this would como from the atore of energy lost out of a gramme of radium in lOOrto hours It seemed therefore absolutely certain that the energy must somehow be supplied from without He suggested that ethereal waves might In some way supply energy to radium while it was emitting heat to matter around It Lord Kelvin Illustrated his theory by the following comparison Suppose a piece of Willie and a piece of black cloth hermetically sealed In similar glass cases were submerged in similar glass vessels of water and exposed to the sun Tie water in the vessel containing tho black cloth would be kept very sensibly warmer than that containing the white cloth Here the thermal energy was communicated to the black cloth by waves of sunlight and was given out as ther mometric heat to the water In the glass around it Thus through the water there was ac tually an energy traveling Inward In virtue of the waves of light and outward through the same space in virtue of thermal conduction Lord Kelvin suggested that experiments be made comparing the heat emission from radium wholly surrounded with thick lead with that found In the surroundings heretofore used WHO FIRED FIRST SHOT Gunpowder linn Hron In 1e rOIl On turle Known to II LUIIllle fore Birth of ChrUt There is abundant evidence that the origin of gunpowder and artillery goes far back into the dim ages of the past The Hindoo code compiled long be fore the Christian era says Stray Sto rte prohibited the making of war with cannon and guns or any kind of fire arms Quintus Curtlus met with fire weapons in Asia and Philostratus says that Alexanders conquests were ar rested by the use of gunpowder- It is also written that those wise men who lived in the cities of the Ganges is ove threw thetrtltenetnles thtmll n II ffiIshootingpowder in the year 275 It was used in the siege of Constantinople in G68 by the Arabs in COO at Thessalonlca In 904 at the siege of Belgrade in 1073 by the Greeks in naval battle in 100S by the Arabs against the Iberians in 1147 and at Toulouse in 1218 It appears to have been generally known throughout civilized Europe In 1300 and soon thereafter it made its way into England where it was manufac tured during the reign of Elizabeth and we learn that few arms were possessed by the English In 1310 and that they were used at the battle of Crecy In lHIi

be called the city of crickets said a man who has Text as says crat for I have never found as many crlcketsany whereon earth as I found out there It is not simply a case of the cricket on the hearth It Is a case of the cricket everywhere you go I have been trying to figure out why it Is that these insects are so plentiful in the Texas town in question At night they swarm around the electric lights like thtf hugs we are familiar with in other places It is impossible to walk along the streets without stepping on them And there is a just a bit of poetry about the situation lin San Antonio with respect to cricket life there The people generally look upon them with a feeling of affection and it Is a rare thing to see a citizen show any sort of igdifferencdto the members of this Interesting family No man would think of treading on a cricket They take particular pains not to do anything that would In any way Injure the lives or limbs of crickets I was peaklnc of the poetry of the situation It Is a fine thins to hoar the crickets crooning early in the evening They chirp as cheerfully as if they were hidden away in the weeds of some romantic dredge or on the hearth which has been immortalized in verse and song Men hurry along the streets women brush along with their musical skirts and all the while the crickets keep on crooning their little love songs just as if the pulses of humanity were not beating about them It Is Interesting picturesque poetic and If I had my way I would christen San Antonio the City of Crickets I think the name would add color to a city

all strangers who come among us The advantages of the city are such as to need very little urging on the part of those just mentioned to make others see the advantages as they actually exist The fact

forefathers in Trousdale county Venn along about 1SOO or 1605 lust a few years after Tenneasee was make a state and is of plain straight glass without the beveled edge incased in a plain square frame of polished oat Its great age is its most attractive feature today yet se dare Kay that the ruling passion inherent in the gentler sex which was as pro nounced then as now was as well antis fled by rapturous gazing into its depths as it is now by the prolonged attentions before the more expensive French plate possessed by the grand dames of our country The ladies who arranged their coiffures anti adjusted their wed ding trousseaus before this inexpensive combination of glass quicksilver and woodwere as beautiful as happy and withal as vain as those of today who employ a fleet of maids and a combination of adjustable and detachable mirrors aud silver and gold backed haud glasses The husbands too of those far distant timesthe men who tot oqly made history but homes com munities and states whose mdouiit ible will and perseverance have established and maintained the integrity of the great southland whose hands knew the contact of the woodman ate and the plow handles and whose strong arm was ever ready to strike in defense of the homes they loved and cherished they too were aw happy and contented to look upon their features in this old fashioned looking glass as those of to day who boast of mirrored halls and crystal palaces The mirror is exceedingly well preserved and with proper cure bids fair to continue to reflect the beautiful images of the fair sex of the Johuou family for ages yet to come Thee present owners are duly and justly proud of their relic and as it is handedt sown from generation to generation on into the aeons of time the noire may rightfully feel the thrill of pride that accompanies this ancient token f which has reflected the images of the greatest men and the noblest women the state of Tennessee has ever kuown they who wrested it from the

democracy nUll entertaining by reason of thu peerless style of that inimitable Stump speaker Mr McUhesney The former gentleman was extremely pel lucid in the arguments ho advanced pis delivery was as KUiotth as the running brook and the intonations of u penetrtting as none other did during the past campaign ofepiritij of 4 Fulton county and captured his audience ere he had spoKen live minutes His stories of the individual republican i leaders especially of Debow Belknap and Bradley were possibly the bestand most laughable ever told here His address was of a light nature up to his touching on the scenes the death of Governor Goebel In his recitntion of these he grew strangely dramatic ana with much pathos de scribed tilt death bed scenes of the martyr d governor Ere he concluded there were sears in many eyes and a welling up of hearts that brooded no good to the republican party in Ken tucky so long us the state remained intact and history recorded the dark deeds of 99 The question of who shall rule in Kentucky has been settled for fotr years more and settled right and these two gentlemen elected on the Demo critic ticket us clerk of tho court of appeals and secretary of the state

for a levee prQti tiag West Hick man have for the time being abandoned the project not as impracticable but because of evident disinterestedness of thejowuors of property which would be effected It was hoped that the agita tion along this line would result in something more tangible than talk but after a thorough canvass tho promoters have about decided that nothing can be done this year and although it is in definitely postponed the fact remains that sooner or later it must be built It is an absolute necessity that the property subject to overflow be afforded proper protection from the encroach- mentsI of high water ere it will bring in the real estate market anything likdI what it is worth For this very obvious reason it would seem that the delay in building the levee is but a

KnruierM Included KetritM 3loii t j trout Circulating A well known business man says that the ordinary observer did not stop to consider what a cool summer meant to the entire business community accord ing to the Philadelphia Record Said he It affects everything that depends upon trade for life I have no doubt that the present slump in stocks Is due In part to the cool summer which has made the crops so uncertain Let us start with the farmer He has had poor luck with his corn melons and all kinds of truck The merchants who sell summer clothing and all kinds of seasonable wear have hardly paid expenses every seashore resort has been running light This means so much money lost from circulation and all the mechanical trades and in dustries must suffer Of course no one Is to blame and the only thing to do is to live and let live until a real hot sum mer comes to push tilings along again CHARITY FOR CRIPPLES liifortiiuutfM AIiNtl Iiy Sxlely Curl oiiMly nmoil The tinllil of the I Brave
