from Nikola Tesls. describing for the
first time his very interesting expert
menu in radioirrsDbr. The scientific
world has been wsiting an expressioi
of opinion from 31r. Tesla, who li
known to hsva begun his experiments
within an hour after the news of pro
fessor Roentgen's discovery was cabled
to this country.
In connection with Mr. Teela's oom
municaiton. tha Electrical Review
prints two remarkable radiographs.
One of these shows the right shoulder
of a man taken through his clothing,
a plate of glass three-sixteenths of an
inch thick, and two inches ot wood,
This radiograph, wbich was made at a
disunoe of four feet from the souroe of
the X rays, shows the ribs, shoulder
bones and bones of the opper arm.
The other radiograph shows a oopper
wire, bent to form the word Roentgen,

feet from the wooden side covering the

In regard to the nature of the X rays,
"I sm getting more and more oon

stresm of material particles, which
strike the sensitive plate with great
velocity. It is now demonstrated be.

Tesla bas secured radiographs show
ing the bony struotureof birds and rab
bits even to the hollow of the bones.
He hat secured a radiograph of a rabbit
after an hour'a exposure in which, not
only every deuil of the skeleton is
visible, but also a dear outline of the
abdominal cavity, location of the lungs,
and the fur are shown. Radiographs
of large birds show the feathers dis
tinctly. In another insunoe, an ex
posure of forty minutes gave radio
graphs of the human skull, showing
clearly not only the outline, bnt the
oavity of the eye, chin, cheek, nasal
bones, the lower jaw and connections to
the npper one, the vertebral column
and connections to the skull, the flesh
and even the hair. Mr. Tesla oontinues
his communication in the following
"By exposing the bead to a powerful
radiation strange effects bsve been
noted. For instance, I find there is
a tendenoy to sleep, snd time seems to
pass swsy quickly. There is a general
soothing effect, and I have felt a sensa
tion of warmth in the opper part of the
head. An assisunt indt nendentlv oon-
uriura me tenaenoy to sleep and a
quick lapse of time. Should these re
markable effects be verified by men
with a keener sense of observation, I
shall still more firmly believe in the
existence of material streams penetrat
ing the vault Thus, it may be pos
sible by these strange appliances to pro
ject a soiuble chemical into anv cart
of the body."
