Many Material Problem* May ■ Solved Thrnnch the Sewly- Dlaoavered Substance. It will be seen at once that the ma terial possibilities of radium are enormous. Among many suggestions as to the outcome, are: the transmu tation of metals (the making of gold no less); solving the problem of light without heat; the perfection of wire less communication; the cure of cer tain phases of blindness; new sourcoa of heat, and, since it would now seem that there is, after all, but one sub stance in the world (w hich appears to our untutored sense to assume various forms merely because each form con tains a special number of particles to the atom), chemistry may undergo such a rejuvenation as will result In the most unheard-of discoveries, says an article on “Radium and Human Life,” in Everybody’s Magazine. Already an hypothesis has been worked out to the effect that the emanations from radium and kindred substances are on a par with the rays which go to make up the aurora bor ealis. It is, in fact, thought quite pos sible that the aurora is merely cathode or Roentgen rays on a gigantic scale, and the phenomenon of Roentgen rays is analogous to that of radium rays. Out of this has come the suggestion that we may soon be able to predict weather changes with greater accu racy than heretofore.
