The Corpimculai Theory
It has always been a severe strain
on the credulity or linamnation of
the chemical student to be told of
items of matter merely hvootheti-
y'l units but now if you are to
keep pace with tiie investigations
and conclusions of the day it will bo
necessary to look upon the atoms as
till a verf complex entity, and to
picture it as made up of hundreds
of constituent particles. These
particles, Prof. J. J. Thomson of
Cambridge who has been foremost
iu devclopinir this theory, calls
"corpuscles. '' Prof. Thomson's theo
ry is based on the fact, as la
believes, that the masses of flying
matter constituting the cathode
rays in art excited Crookes tube are
much small than the atoms ol
chemists and physicists; and that
these smaller "corpuscles'1 of dif
lereut substances have similar
properties. Thus a corpuscle ol
nydrogen does not appear to differ
from a corpuscle of nitrogen. In
other words, so far as the present
,cage of research goes, the corpuscle
. cprcsenls the pi-otyle'' or original
iiiolncr substance from which till
.v-'imiiicnl elementary substances are
iiypotlietically assumed to have ori
ginated, iiy this theory all corpus
cles are alike. When several
;i.undrcd' of thoni combine in one
!iorm they make an atom of gold,
'ior instance, and when they coiuoinc
! in another form they make an atom
!of iron. A Crookes tube thus be

vili'inents are being broken up intt.

protyle is ever secured it will onlv
remain for man to discover the
secret of compounding it syntheti
cally into any element he wishes,
and on the day wheu that is done

During the early day of the X-ray
discoveries, it will be recalled, the
Oehavior of the rays, was referred
to by some investigators as represeu
tiug a physical ; "bombardment"
by minute particles of matter pro
ceeding from the cathode. The new
theory contemplates something ot
this kind as a fact, and we begin to
get back again to Franklin's idea of
an electric "current"' as physically
existing m a modified sense. Should
the theory advanced by Prof. Thom
son continue to be supported by
investigators it goes without saying
that it will work a profound change
in our view of our . relation to the
Root' Sounds an Alarm.
The political sensation of the. week
has been a speech made by Secre
tary of War Root at the annua!
banquet of the New York . Grant

in which he referred to the nevstsity

had reference, to Germany's designs
Ion Brazil. Tho part touching on
this subject was as follows:.
"No one who re&ds the papers
can fail to see, that the course of

stretching out for territory; and he
will finally be brought, ,to say that
the- AmericiMi peoplt; will be forced
to abandon the Monroe doctrine,
