prove this to be tho case nothing would
please him more.
While medical men here have not made
an exhaustive search to find if Dr. Bell
waa the originator of the "Imbedding in
tissue" Idea, they believe .that actual
work along this line did not occur until
three or four years later. They cite an
article, written by Dr. William II. DIef
fenbach. of New York, in the Medical
Record of December 1 1913, in which
the early steps In the employment of
radium as a curative agent are described.
Dr. DIeffenbach tells of securing a tube
of radium bromido of 1.500,000 activity in
1902 and of additions being made to this
amount later. In 1906, he says, solutions
f 2,000 activity of radium were dissolved
In gelatine, the object being to use an
animal product as a vehicle for dissem
inating radium within tissues by means
ot Injections. The physician, one of the
pioneers In this line, falls to state exactly
when the actual Imbedding of the radium
Itself first took place.
vvwie they have not been able to find
exact data on the subject physicians In
the office of the Surgeon General of tho
War Department are of the opinion that
Dr. Bell's suggestion was the first of Its
kind to be made.

that Southern women are not pro

than an Indictment of Southern wom

"The president of the Alabama asso

told the truth as a delegate to the

she said that all Southern States are

After a short stay In Washington,
Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont, of New York,
left for New York yesterday afternoon
to attend to suffrage matters there.
"The Congressional Union Is the
strongest and most active suffrage or
ganization." she said. "I have been
watching Its work, and the more I see
of Its methods the more I like them. I
have decided to work with them In future."
Mrs. Belmont recently sent her
check for 15.000 to the union and ac

Mrs. Belmont came here to establish
her own headquarters for suffrage
