The Wonderful New Metal.
At one of the leading colleges of
Cilifornia, a short time since. Dr. Ed
ward Booth of the department of
chemistry delivered a lecture on the
subject of the new metal radium.
The discovery of radium came through
a peculiar quality which uranium
was observed to have in making im
pressions on a pbotographii plate.
This action was first thought to be
due to sunlight, but is was sc -¡dent
ally found that sunlight was not
necessary,and from this fact eel relists
were led to discover radium as a sep
arate and new element.
The source of radium is the miner
al pitch-blend, in which the radium
is present only in ab^ut the same pro
portion as there is gol3 in seawater.
To obtain enough of the new metal
to corer a nickel four tons of pitch-
bleud must be worked over, and prob
ably not more than two table-sp-ron-
fulls have ever been extracted; so
tiiat the valuation of 63,000,000 a
pour.d which has been placed on the
new metal is only ah approx.mate
Some of the most characteristic
radium are that it
gives off light without any apparent
change in condition, that it gives off
heat sufficient to melt its own weight
of Ice every hour, aod retains this
capacity indefinitely, though it is
probable it suffers an infinitesimal
loss of weight. The peculiar activity
which the new metal possesses, and
that Is most likely toprove of value to
mankind, is its apparent ability to
kill or paralyze bacteria. The power
of its peculiar radiation of light and
beat may be seen in me fact that if
the activity if oie grain of radium
could be liberated all at once it would
lift a twelve-ton battleship ten feet
into the air. It does not seem prob
able that radium exists In nature in
anything like a pure state or that it
will ever be very much easier to obtain
than it is at present.
