About Sound Waves.
One of those scientists 4ho are al

in thought has come forward with the
statement that sound itself Is not ex
traneous, but exists only because of
nerve. In other words, If the ears of
the human race were removed tomor
row the world would be absolutely
noiseless to humanity. The contention
is that the sound waves, traveling at
a rate of 1,090 feet a second, create
invisible ripples In the air just as a
pool ripples when a rock is thrown
into it. The greater the force of these'
waves the louder the sound. But there!
is no noise until these sound waves
strike the sensitive nerves of the ear.
Thus, reverting to the original proposi
tion, the air waves themselves would
be noiseless did they not operate in
conjunction with the humani sems of
