A Virginian veteran used to tell how
Andy Jackson used boles of cotton In

urally n matter of Indifference to Ultu

Some of tho cotton happened to bo

devotion, lie could not bear tu tear
himself away from them. He was
standing over them when Jackson tin

to the chief, bo will: "Monsieur. It Is
damage for your men to take my cot

ENERGY OF RADIUM.

If ono could utilize tbo energy of a
ton of radium through a apace of thir
ty yeara tt would bo sufficient to drive
ahlp of 15.000 tons, with englnea of
10.000 horsepower, at a rate of fifteen
knots throughout the wbola thirty
yeara. To do thla 1,500,000 tons of coal

Theso are not fanciful figures, for the
energy Is there, though, aa a matter of
fact. It Is unlikely that man will ever
produco much more than half an
ounce of radium a year.
Still, the fact li Important for this
reason that science Is convinced that
the radium In radium bromide la not
tho only clement which possesses this
marvelous store of energy, but that the
calcium In gypsum and the sodium In
common salt contain also this energy
Tbo evidence of the wonderful atomic
energies In the common elements of
everyday material Is rapidly accumu

that perhaps theso same discoveries
may In tlmo alter tho whole future of
tho human race.
