THE WONDERS OF ALUMINUM
CAN IIK HAD FIltlM THT. VKItY CHINA
ON YOUK TAHI.r-
Hon the Metal Ij Obtained, fflut It Colts
anil What tt Is L'seel r.ir-lts
Future Promises Wonder
Any hoiiFCholdcr probably could go Inlo
his back jard at nn time and open nn
aluminum mine. Jf he were Industrious he
could easily dig enough clny, or alumina,
within a few months to ileld.when reduced,
hundreds ot dollars' worth ot aluminum,
It he wished further to Increase his pro
duction, sojs the Chicago Hecord, he might
pull down Ihe bricks from the noils nnd
thlinne)s of his home, break up the tile
nround his mantelpiece nnd throw In nil
his china and earthenware utensils, each
ot which contains a large percentage of the
let all his work would, prollt him little.
Por, although the earth is falrl) crusted
with aluminum and every city In the
world Is largely built of lis compounds,
)et man has never discovered a rcrtlly
cheap way of getting the metal free from
Its ore. It has 11 tremendous alllnlty for
the ox)gcn with which It Is combined, two
parts to three In nlumlnn or els), nnd only
11 heat Ilerccr than any furnace can stand,
or a powerful electric current, will subdue
If. If it was easil) smelted from lis ore,
as Is Iron, It Is safe to say that aluminum
would be to-da) the cheapest nt,d com
monest of alt motnls. As It s. Its wonder
ful qualities arc winning for It a steadily
widening range of usefulness. It requires
no very great stretch of faith to believe
that the age of steel will soon bo super
seded b the age ot aluminum.
And ct this universal nnd elementary
chemical substance was wholly unknown,
even In the world's best laboratories, until
KM, when a Uerman named Wohler suc
ceeded In separating a few globules of tho
beautiful white metal, 'thousands ot times
Its weight in gold would not have bought
this early product of the chemist's skill.
As soon as the discovery was made the
whole scientific world turned Its attention
to tho Invention of some method for the
easy extraction ot the tnetnl, but It was
not until thirl) )car later In 1ST.S that
the slightest headway was made. In that
car a Prenchmnn named Dcvllle mixed
crjollte, the double lluorido of aluminum
nnd sodium, with some of the metal so
dium and applied an Intense heat. In
stantly thcro was a lively combination nnd
the aluminum appeared In globules. But
this vns an expensive operation, because
sodium Is an exceedingly valuable metal
and the use ot even a little of It made the
manufacture of nlumlnum on a large scale
Hut scientists went on experimenting
with v.ining success until the early '0s.
lllectrlclty had been used to some extent,
but the results had not been good. In 1&S7
a Prenchmin named llerould patented an
electrical process, which has since been In
use at Neuhausen, Switzerland, and large
quantities ot aluminum havo been ob
tained. In the United States the Pitts
burg Reduction Company is chief maker
of the metal, nnd Its process, known as
Hall's, is the best In the world, being sim
ilar in principle to thn't of llerould The
compaii) Is even now making preparations
to move out near Niagara Palls, where It
can use the power from the turbines below
the falls for generating electrlclt). The
plant will then greatl) Increase Its pro
duction of nlumlnum.
The processes ot reducing clay, while
they are patented, are to a certain extent
trade t-ecrets, veiy rarefullv kept on ac
count of their great value. The) can, how
ever, be described In a general way. lor
running the factory nt Neuhausen water
power is secured from the lthino and an
electrical current of 11,000 amperes and 20
volts, 1,000 000 watts, Is generated. This
teirtllc current Is run over heavy copper
wires to the reduction machine.
The great trouble with an aluminum fac
torv Is the production of Immense volumes
of poisonous gases Shortly nfter the erec
tion of the Neuhausen factor) the lno
ards along the Hhlne began to blight and
die, and the company was compelled to buy
all the land for a long distance In every di
rection Hall's process, used by the Pittsburg He
ductlon Company, Is similar to llcrauld's.
Coollte is used to help fuse the alumina,
and about twenty -two horse-power Is nec
essary to each pound of nlumlnum pro
duced pet hour.
'Ihese modern proces'ses havo brought
down the price of aluminum wonderfully
It can now bo bought for from SO to to
cents a pound a price which could never
have been 1 cached nor even npproaehed by
the chemical processes. It dot s not se-em
probable that the cost of existing mcthoels
ot reduction, worked as they are by the
1 heapest ot ull motors, water power, can be
reduced to an) considerable extern But
Invmlors are working on tho problem and
e new process mi) be dlscov ered w hereby
the ptices will be still further reduced. In
comparing the cost of aluminum with that
of other metals It should bo remembered
that It is onl) about one-third the weight
of copper, and therefore that, except where
lenslle strength is lequlred, a given weight
will to three times as far.
Ono of the first purposes to which alum
inum vvas put was tlie making of nlumln
um bronze for use in e.tstlncr all sorts of
useful ami ornuinental articles. Prom ba to
'" per cent ot copper combined with from
1 to 15 per cent of aluminum, makes the
best bronze The resulting metal has the
well kntwn rich color. Is non-corrosive nnd
exceedingly tough. I'ive per cent of silver
ad let! to aluminum makes a valuable alloy
-whiter, stronger, and more elastic thnn
the pure aluminum In fact, ull metals
alio) well with aluminum except, lend nml
In the last live years the use of alumin
um has Increased in .1 marvelous manner
It is said that the manufacturers cannot
produce enough to supply tho demand,
And )et the public nt luri,e.ls still unac
quainted with nil Its fields of usefulness,
nnd for this lensou It still has a great op
portunity for growth Indeed, there is
perhips no better chance for a )Oimg mnn
stnrtlng out In llfo than In going Into,
learning nnd growing up with the new In
dustry But the very fact that nlumlnum, with
its wealth of wonderful quilltles, has be
come so chtap Is ono of tho thlngH that
has worked against Us advancement. Por
a class of aluminum "cranks" has sprung
up who nro Hooding the country with sto
lies evolved irom their Inner conscious
ness as to the possibilities of the new met
al The best dealers discourage all Im
possible applications of aluminum. A story
Is told of a circus acrobat who went to a
de-aler not long ago und wnnted to buy
in aluminum bar for a trapeze, four feet
long anil three Inches In diameter. He had
heap, he t.iid, that aluminum vvas far
sttonger, more elastlu and Iu every way
far better than the finest gtade of spring
steel A tube of nlumlnum such as he
wanted would have broken at once. The
metal dom not have the necessary tensile
strength for such usuge.
Tho uses of aluminum are practically Infinite-,
A mere catalogue of them would

Por medals and small, useful articles It
has been known for some time Por
household utensils It Is Just coming into
geneinl use, Its non-corroslvcness, ItH
cleanliness and Its tightness make It es.
pcclull) welcome 111 thu kitchen. Jewelers
urn putting Iu aluminum novelties, bicy
cle make is use aluminum Iu many parts
of their machines, sclentlllo and surglcul
instruments arc made of It; nlumlnum
chains uio found useful In mlno machinery

them; diugglsiii till tlie li cases with alum
inum blushes mid combs and the manu
facture! h of hut hers' supplies uie Intro
ducing aluminum goods, Umbrella und
cuiiemakers also use tho metal In place of
wood for sticks. The largest quantity ot
aluminum Is used In making steel, tu
which it Imparts a stipe riot quality. Man
ufacture! s are making bath tubs, and
shoe dealers build up the heels of shoes
with tho ini'tnl. All tho griut war vessels
of thee world have nlumlnum finishings,
and Pianco has built an aluminum tor
pedo boat. Lithographers am adopting
an nlumlnum stone, and cash legisteis

durability urtlllclal limbs aru made best
of aluminum, and so niu horse shoes and
ornamtiits fur collins Ulevuturs are built

Iho ulumtniim inunufaetuiers uro now
making on effort to have their product
used by the government for coins of thu
smaller de-nominations, und they asset l
thai before many mouths an experiment
will be made with aluminum S-cent pieces.
Two questions have always puzzled
aluminum workers, und those ate the dif
ficulties of soldering and of tempering
The pioblem of soldering Is dlmcitlt ow,
Ing to the elcctio-posltliu nature ot alum
inum. Itecently, however, a Philadelphia!!
has Invented u solder In which a small
percentage of phosphorus Is used, und the
results of his experiments are said to be
extremely satisfactory. Hundreds of In
ventors uro working on the problem, ami

Tempering aluminum has always been
regarded as well nigh impossible, al
though, as In the tuso of copper, scien
tists are suru that there iniut lie some
way to do tt If that way enn only bo dis

Very recently the newspapers contained

named Allard whereby nlumlnum may, It

Prom the New York Commercial Advertiser
it Is startling to think that there nre cer
tain parts of the earth where the people
nre cither threatened with famine or nre
actually suffering from It. The most con
spicuous examples of this kind are Labra
dor, the Western Islands otT the const of
Scotland and tho vvestcrn counties of Ire
land. The Irish famine of 1M7. In which
tens of thousands of people died of starva
tion, nnd during which the gteat exodus
from Ireland to America set In, Is recalled
as the most notable infliction of this kind
that has befallen uny people In modern
The economist In studying the cause of
famine In Ireland to-day, which Is In n
similar way a repetition of tho famine of
1S17, Is surprised to see that the exports of
meat, butter, eggs, poultry nnd oats to
Unglund Indicate that In Ireland, ns a
whole, food Is abundant, so abundant that
It Is being shipped to other countries. A
famine in a land virtually flowing with
milk nnd honey Is such an anomalous con
dition ns to startle tho student on tho
threshold of his Investigations. Yet tho
cause Is very evident. The Irish peasantry,
particular!) In llalvvay, Sllgo and Mno.
live principally on potatoes and tlsh, tho
former being their chief nnd often their
only crop. When this crop failed In IS 17 nil
other crops In other parts of Ireland were
above the average, but what availed this
to the man whose solo reliance was pota
toes, when every turn ot his spade In tho
harvest field brought up the rotten tuhers7
These potato growers also raised pigs nnd
poultry, not for their own use the luxury
of meat was almost unknown to many of
them but to pay rent. The wretched
leasnntry have made but llttlo advance In
the Inst llfty years.
If they realized the suicidal folly of
placing their entire dependence on one
crop, or would make the experiment of ro
uting their crops, making their agriculture
more varied, their condition would certnln
lv Improve. Hut they keep on in the snmo
old way, nnd the result Is another famine,
with this suffering land once more a pau
per at the gateway ot more prosperous
If there were not a lesson for ourselves
In this Irish famine. It might bo passed
over ns a dismal mntter ot news that had
lost Its force by tepetltlon. But in parts
of our own country neuly the same condi
tion of affairs has existed since the war.
Tho tobacco nnd cotton glowers of the
South have been depending on ono crop,
this has been particularly the case In the
cotton belt. Although tills region Is well
suited to the growth of hogs and com,
the cotton, planter, Instead of making his
land self-sustaining and depending on his
cotton sales for his cash, has had his
smokehouses in Iowa and his corn cribs In
In years when tho worm or some other
pest Injured the cotton crop, or an exces
sive yield lowered the price beyond the
cost of production, the planter has been
reduced to the veige of starvation, and this
In a land like Ireland In which every
product essential to human sustenance can
be successfully grown.
Ireland s appeal for help will be sure to
meet with a generous response from Amei
Ica, but the evils from which sho is suffer
ing ml.ht rexlound to our own advantage
It our planters could see In it on added
reason for crop rotation, and particularly
for making their farms self-sustaining as
an essential to making them profitable.

to evade the watchfulness of tho hn

Not so generally known, though, per
hips, Is the fact that hardly less sleuth

some other temperance advocate, his half

following story on the subject, told by a
successful Keeley graduate. This man had
for years been In the habit of going on
periodical sprees once In every few weeks,
the effects of each one of which would
last him until he began on anotnei.
He was accustomed to have his supply
of a gallon or more como from Boston on
the afternoon train, which he would, while
still sober, divide Into a hnlf dozen dlfier
ent jugs, and would then hide each Jug In
a different place This ho did In order to
the more securely concetl It nil. In lug, ns
he now tells us, a strong believer in tlie

which he hid beneath the sweat leather ot
Tlmo went on and he recovered from his
spree. One thing troubled him, however;
he remembered th it he had hidden four
parcels of tho stuff, and he was positive
that while on the racket ho had consumed
only thiee of them
Of couisc hu knew he had hidden It, but
where ebouts he couldn't tell, neither could
he find nny note of tlie hiding place any
where among his papers. At list, nfter
several vain hunts, he gave up nil hope of
ever finding that precious quart of whisky.
All this had transpired In the fall. Dur
ing tho ensuing winter the man took the
Keeley cure nnd ver) successfully, too, lor
he has not diauk a jtrop of liquor since his
departuie fiom North Conway. Last July
the reformed man hired out to help a
friend through haying, and thinking a felt
hit to be rather heavy for such a season
of the year, he hunted out his strnvv hit
of thP preceding season the very one ho
hid worn on the last spree.
Placing the old hat on his head ho went
out Into the field and wus walking brlskly
toward the pond when a familiar gust of
wind suddenly tossed his hut a rod or so
away Into the grass.
Hunning up to It the man saw lying be.
side the hat .1 small piece of paper, which
hnd 111 somo unaccountable way blown out
from under thu sweat leather.
Picking It up the owner of thn hat. as
well as tho writer, who was also there,
"In the Old Stove In the Outlet :
"Camp One Quart.":
And that, probably, Is the reason why
one of the best f unllli s In town still keeps
a bottle of whisky, to bo used In case of
sickness But It was bought by the now
unit il sally respected head of the family
for a vastly different purpose.

The Iloy Phenomenon gave his second
public demonstration at the Auditorium
ast night. As on the previous occasion,
a great crowd of interested spectators,
besides hundreds of thoe mulcted with all
diseases that flesh Is heir to, were block
ing the walks and street, long before, the
time of opening. A score or more of the
allllctcd were treated upon the slage, and
all, with two exceptions, were cltncr en
tirely cured or greatl) bcnelllevd by this
iouthful healer. Jt was one of the grand
est, most line Inspiring and putlictlu dem
onstrations of healing tho sick ever per
formed lu this city.
During the exhibition the management
announced that on to-night 11 final nnd last
demonstration would bu given, absolutely
free lo all, In order that tho poor and
others who havo been unable to attend tho
previous demonstrations would havo an
opportunity of securing admission to-nljht.
'that the ago of miracles has passed la
generally conceded, but those who witness
to-night the healing of enses that for years
havo defied ail other modes ot treatment
will havo Just cause to think they have ic
turned. . , , , ,
Now nnd then, though at Intervals of
long years, appears a person possessed ot
the Cod-given power of healing, A power
not tho result of years of study or labor,
but something which surpnssclh the power
of human understanding. This power, com
bined with the equal God-like gift of phil
anthropy and the divine love of humanity
which characterized the Savior during Ills
life on earth, Is 11 blessing to poor, suf
fering mankind, to the halt, tho paralyzed
ami the diseased.
This power Is now In tho possession of a
young man, known throughout the world
as the "Boy Phenomenon." And while he
clnlms no supernatural power, not ono In
tho nucllenco to-night, after witnessing his
many remarkable cures, can doubt but
what his power Is a gift from higher
sources than is usually accorded mankind.
This third public demonstration Is given
at tho urgent request ot hundreds, both
rich and poor, who have been disappointed
In not being nblc to obtain even stnndlng
room at any of his previous demonstrations
and who have earnestly requested that one
more chance be afforded them to receive
The ability of the citizens of Kansas City
to appreciate true merit, has been abund
antly exemplified In every w.iv possible,
llio confidence bestowed upon Dr. Temple
and his treatment, In giving him the larg
est practice ever .accorded a physician In

ami advice A thoiough til ignosis ot each

without asking a single question.
