She felt both relief and embarrassment, It meant that the young officer had decided to overlook the unfortunate innuendo of Curtis Stanley's, and would never ask for an explanation.

This theory says that all matter-- Is ultimately electrical at basis;inthat the nature, atom is exceedingly complex and is built up somewhat like our soin lar system, with a central nucleus the middle (like our sun) and a number of particles revolving about it, as our planets revolve around the sun. The distance between them would be as great, proportionately, as the distances between the various planets and the sun, in our solar system! The central nucleus, on the modern theory of matter, consists in a negative charge of electricity, while the particles revolving round it are These charges of positive electricity. differ in number, and the various "elements" are merely qualities of the atom, due to the differences between the number of the positive within the atom itself. charges ELEMEXTS CAN BE CHANGED.
