experiments Dr. Roberts seut a cur

of a baud wus taxeu, showing perfect-

! even were this not true the Teat would
be remarkable in that he is the first
man to ever make himself the con
ductor of a current of electricity of
great power enough to create an X-ray.
The secret of Dr. Roberts' success In
his experiments Is that lie employed
what is known to be a static current
through his body. The static-current
has no volume, but great power. It Is
not the potential energy that kills, but
tho volume. This may la Illustrated
by an analogy. A needle might be
passed through the body with great
rapidity and power, but It would not
be ns harmful as n thousand needles
passed through slowly nnd with little
power. In other words, the power, the
voltage, has nothing whatever to do
with the physiological effect. It Is the
number of needles, the amperage. Still
the experiment Is not without danger. It
requires a nice adjusinent of machin
ery to produce the proper kind of cur
rent, it requires a thorough knowledge
cf certain conditions to apply the cur
rent perfectly. It requires a familiar
ity with ek-ctrlc currents to prevent
shock. To Dr. Rolierts It had little or
no danger. "Tho Idea or passing an
X-ray current through my body was

profession has exactly what It needs
to balance. The static current Is elec

tension. It Is sometimes called I-'rank-llnlc

Identity with terrestrial electricity. It
Is electrical pressure without volume.
It Is nlmost free from amperage aud

ically, It Is the great Invisible messen
ger for light heat and electricity from

generating of tho static current Is sim
ple. An Initial charge of electricity
must bo Imparted to tho armature or

plates aro set In motion with artificial
power. About tho revolving plates a
certain multiplication of the certain
electricities takes place by theJnfluunco
of ono charged body upon another, with
tho resulting output of static currents
depending upon speed, number of and
diameter of plates and atmospheric
conditions. This machlue, which Is not
moro thun live feet long, six feet high
and three feet wide, Is capable of gen
