Observation Is a quality that. Is easy to cultivate If you make vp your mind to do so. Try to notice the birds and beasts, the men and things yon see ;every day. Ask yourself at night what jyou have seen during the day. At first your answers will be very short, but ;oon you will find that you are beginning really to sqe things. It Is not difficult, and It is well worth while. Allied with observation Is the power of Imagination. . The first enables us to see things as they are ; by means of the second we see things as they might be. Imagination makes use not of the outward eye, but of the : minds eye. Dictionarys Last Word.

WHAT EVERY GIRL SHOULD KNOW BEFORE MARRIAGE In- formed. Everybody knows that she j was made much of by our dignitaries ; that ten degrees were conferred upon her by our universities; that President Harding himself made the presentation to her in the White House with appropriate words In the presence of a brilliant gathering of notables, and that a .tired and happy woman finally sailed away with her precious gram of radium stored In a mahogany case lined with steel and lead. She said she was going to take a real rest and that she hoped In September to go back to her work In the Curie institute in Paris now that she again has radium to work with. The Institute divides Its work along two main lines. One has to do with the study of radium and radioactive substances purely from the viewpoint of the physicist ; the other deals with their application to the treatment of human ailments. She will also carry on an extensive Investigation of mesathorium, another radioactive substance enough of this was presented to her to bring tbe value of the combined gift to $165,-000. al - in New York City alone from kid ney trouble last year.

Missouri stock 550 (U. THE RIGHT TERM , But where this American radium came from and how it was produced Is another story, which may profitably be told in this connection. It is especially Interesting, Inasmuch as the total worlds supply of radium Is estimated at only 140 grams (a gram is one twenty-eight- h of an ounce). The Illustration by comparison shows how small Is this amount. The lower section represents that made by the principal American radium refinery, the dark section that made by other American refineries and the upper layer that produced abroad. So, though radium was not produced In the United States till 1913, this country now has made about five times as much as the rest of the world. While Mme. Curie, by discovering radium, introduced a new conception Into the fundamental problems of existence, she actually produced very little radium, since she was denied the ores with which to work. Moreover, she gave It all away to the medical profession of Europe. A very small portion found its way to New York. In 1911 the late Joseph M.. Flannery of Pittsburgh, who had made a success with vanadium as an alloy for steel, dfevoted his attention to the production of radium. The ores of other countries being out of the question, he turned to the carnotite deposits Prior to of southwestern Colorado. the World war this carnotite ore had been shipped to French and German producers of radium. The mining and handling of carnotite ore In southwestern Colorado Is attended with difficulties. The region Is desolate and practically uninhabited. Water is scarce. Flannery had hfs troubles. He had to train new men. He finally established headquarters at the only spring of Clearwater within 100 miles; here the Standard Chemical company maintains all the offices' for its mining work, transportation and supplies. Eighteen miles away the company built the largest concentration mill In " the radium world, through which has passed the ore from which has been refined more than half the worlds supply of radium,. Burros carry the ores- - from the mines to the mill, and water and supplies to the miners. Mme.- Curie worked on European ores which contained about one gram of radium- to every five or six tons. In the Colorado ores there is about ZiAzvz&cjpnx ctzyzsiKfSf one gram to every 500 tons. Moreover, the carnotite miner Is a pocket hunter. Sometimes the ore appears on the surface and along rim rocks; then extraction is easy. More frequently the ore Is found under a heavy overload of other material; then reg- ular mining tunnels are run and dynamite Is used to break the rock for transportation to the surface. The pockets vary widely ; - some contain only a few pounds, while exceptional pockets have contained 1,800 tons. First, of course, the pocket must be found. Prospecting Is done by drilling in likely spots with Jack hammers and with diamond drills. Where the overlay is not more than 25 feet deep the jack hammer, operated by portable gasoline compressors and compressed air, is the cheapest method of working. Under other conditions the diamond drill Is used. Hamilton Foley writes for the Pan American Union an Interesting account of the operations of the company and of the production of the radium presented to Mme. Curie; the pictures used herewith are among the Illustrations. He says In one place: Let us follow the various operations from the extraction of the ore to the final recovery of the radium. At the concentration mill In the wilds of Colorado 500 tons of ore are reduced to about 125 tons. In a powdered form this quantity Is shipped d in sacks, by wagon and, where possible, by motor trucks, the 65 miles to Placerville, Colo. Here a narrow-guag- e railroad takes It to the transcontinental railroad at Salida, Colo. From Salida it travels the 2,300 miles to Canonsburg, Pa., just outside of Pittsburgh, where the company maintains its concentration plant. No. 2. It should be noted that at the mill in Colorado, and in the operations pertaining to it, some 300 men are necessary to carry through all the detailed work. Also, that when the ore is taken up by the Colorado mill, there is only 1 part radium for every 400,000,000 parts of the ore; but when the ore reaches the mill at Canonsburg the proportion is 1 part of radium to 100,000,000 parts of the ore. The task of the Canonsburg men Is to reduce this mass of ore to less than a quarter of a ton, and in such a way that whatever radium may have been in the greater mass will be found in the small residue. This Is done with regularity and precision, notwithstanding that in the elimination of the 1-- one-fift- 10,-00- capacitated for many hours after In- spectlng a poppy plantation.

It should be noted In this connection that whatever small quantity of vanadium and uranium there may be in this material Is saved while this final reduction is being made. The actual recovery of whatever radium there may be In the tons of material handled at these two great concentration plants is made elsewhere. When the 125 tons of material that reached Canonsburg from the mill In the West have been reduced to less than a quarter of a ton, this residue Is sent to the radium research laboratories of the company In the form of radium barium chloride. By suc- - dinl luminous. - POISONOUS fractional crystallizations ol the radium chloride and, at a latei stage, of the bromide, most of the radium is obtained In a salt containing over 95 per cent of pure radium bromide. By still further - chemical treatment the bromide Is converted Into the sulphate or the chloride, and in the therapeutic nse of radium these two salts find the largest use. Mme. Curie, several years ago by general request, fixed an International radium standard. This is deposited In Paris and the leading cities of the world have replicas of It. So now radium preparations are measured by comparing the electrical energy cap rled by their gamma rays with thai of the international standard. While radium has still many mysteries, ll may be said for the benefit of the general public that Its energy appears to be given off In three rays, which are known as the Alpha, Beta and Gamma rays. It Is stated that the Alpha and Beta rays are electrical and that the Gamma ray Is rather a vibration than a ray. The Alpha raj is believed to 'comprise 85 per cenj of radiums activity; It travels with about the speed of light and has no penetrative power. The Beta ray is about 10 per cent of the activity, the speed ol travels with about light and can penetrate about an Inch h and olead. The Gamma ray can penetrate more than three Inches of lead ; when It strikes a hard substance It breaks' up Into two rays corresponding to the Alpha and Beta rays. It Is the Gamma ray that is used in .bloodless surgery. The Alpha ray does not burn. The Beta ray Is kepi from the patient by a screen that absorbs It. The Gamma ray seems to have the peculiar quality of picking out useless or harmful tissues for its first attack; It will harm useful tis; sues only after harmful tissues have been burnt away or dissolved. Radium is handled in glass tubes incased in leiul containers. Those who handle it constantly usually get pretty badly burned sooner or later. Flesh burned oy radium cannot be healed ; it stmplj disappears and is gone. One of Mme, Curies hands has been affected and her general health has been undermined by Intensive wartime work with radium. A gram of radium makes a small . thimbleful. Its current price is A gram Is divided into a thousand parts, each ef which is called a milligram and sells for $120. Physicians who use It have from 50 to 25 The state of New York miligrams. lias recently purchased 2j4 grams for use in the treatment of cancer. With radium worth $120,000 a thimbleful, how Is It that the dials of even cheap watches can be made luminous by Its use? Its this way: The luminous material on the dial is a com. bination of a most minute portion ol real radium and a special zinc sulphide. These atoms are do small that It would take hundreds of millions of them to cover an Inch. As each atom explodes, a projectile too small to be seen under a microscope files oft and strikes a crystal of the zinc oxide. The heat generated by the Im pact makes a flash visible to the eye, As these explosions occur at the rate of about 200,000 a second on the watch dial, their combined flashes make the ' cesslve A WONDERFUL BOOK mi el M tafef Hi, Mmttd to ll A Mothers Knov That Genuine Castoria Jalgohol-- 3 PER CENT, Aefahfeftcpanll Always similatindthelbod IlngtteStnflttifeaMBcwdsa I vnwnmDR?
