" the great electrician Edison defines it us follows : "My mind is not of a speculative order , "said Mr. Edison ; "it is essentially practical , and when I am making an ex periment I think only of getting somo- tliing useful , of iiuik'ing electricity per form work. "I don't soar. I keep down pretty close to the earth. Of course , there are problems in life I can't help thinking about , but I don't try to study thoin out. It is necessary that they should bo stud ied , and men lilted for that work tire doing it. I am not lltted for it. I leave the theoretical study of electricity to th ) physicists , confining my worlc to the practical application of the force. It is my belief , however , that every atom of matter is intelligent , deriving energy from the primordial germ. The intelligence of man is , I t.iko it , the sum of the intolligoncics of the atoms of which ho is composed , livery atom has an intelligent power of selection and is always striving to tret into harmonious relation with other atoms. The huinnii body , I think , is maintained in its integrity by the intel ligent persistence of its atoms , or rather by an agreement between the atoms so to persist. When the harmonious ad justment is destroyed the man dies , and the atoms seek other relations. "I cannot regard the odor of decay but as the result of the olToi-ts of the atoms to dissociate themselves ; they want to get away and make now combi nations. Man , therefore , m ty bo regarded in some sort us a , microcosm of atoms agreeing to constitute his lift ! as long as order and discipline can bo maintained. But , of course , there is disaffection , re bellion and anarchy , leading eventually to death , and , through death to now forms of life. For life I regard as inde structible. ' "All matter lives , and everything that lives possosbcs intelligence. Consider growing corn , for example. An atom of oxygen comes flying through the air. It seeks combination with other atoms and goes to tbo corn ' , not by chance , but by intention. It is'soiv.ed by other atoms that need oxygon'and is packed away in the corn whore it can do its work. JNrow carbon , hydrogen and oxygen enter into tlio composition of every organic sub stance in ono form of arrangement or another. The formula CIIO , in fact , is almost universal. "Very well , then , why does a free atom of carbon select any particular ono out of lifty thousand or more possible jositious unless it wants to ? I cannot see how wo can deny intelligence to this ict of volition on the part of tlio atom. To say that ono atom bus an allinity for mother is simply to use a big word. The atom is conscious if nv.in is con scious , is intelligent if mnn is intelli gent , exercises will power if man does , H , in its own little way , all that man is. VVo are told by treologists that in the mrliost periods no form of life could ox- st on the earth. "How do thpy know that ? A crysta , s devoid of this vital p.'inciplo they say md yet certain kinds of atoms i'n variably UTan o themselves in a particular way to form a crystal. They did that in .foolugieul periods antedating the ap pearance of any form of life'and have ueon doing it over since in precisely the same way. Some crystals form in branches like a fern. Why is there not ifo in the growth of a crystal ? Was the vital principle specially created at some particular period of the earth's history , or dta it exist and control every atom of matter when the earth was mollonV I cannot ttvihd the coii''ltision ' that all mutter is composed of intelligent atoms ind that life and mind are moro syn- onyinus for the aggregation of atomic in- .elligenco. "Of course there is a source of energy. Nature is a perpetual motion machine , tnu perpetual motion implies a sustain- ng and impelling force. "When 1 was in Berlin I mot Du Bois 3avinond , and wagcing the end of my Ingoiyl said to him , EWlr.it is that ? ' What moves that linger ; ' lie said lie lidn't know ; that investigators have for twonty-livo years boon trying to find out. If anybody could toll him what vaggcd this linger ihb problem of life vould bo solved. "Thoro are many forms of energy re sulting from the combustion of coal indor a boiler. Some of these forms ve known something about in a pract- cal way , but thqro may bo many others vo don t know anything about. "Perhaps electricity will itself bo superseded in time , who knows ? Now a loof.-itculc in the , , , human stoumoh is equivalent to coivUundor a bailor. By oxidization it oxoitos energy that doo's vork , but what form of energy is it ? It islet lot steam pressure. It acts through the nerve cells , performs work that can bo measured in foot pounds , and can bo transformed Into electricity , but the actual nature- this force which pro duces this work which makes elTeotual tlio mandate of the will la unknown. "It is not magnetism , itdoosn't attract Iron , It is not electricity at least not such a form of electricity 113 wo are familiar with. Still , here it is neces sary to be guarded , because so many different forms of electricity are known to science that it would bo rush to say positively that wo shall not classify vltiil energy as a form of electrical energy. Wo cannot nrguo anything from dllTor- oneo in speed. Nerve force may travel us fust as electricity , once It gets started. The apparent slowness may bo in tlio brain. It may take an appreciable time for the brain to set the force going. "i made an experiment , with a frog's leg that indicates something of the kind. I look a leg Unit was susceptible to galvanic current. The vibration pro- ilticod a note as high as a piccolo.Miilo Iho log was tilivo It tcspondod to the electrical current ; when it was dead it would not respond. After the frog's leg hud been lying in the laboratory three days I couldn't make it squeal. Tlio ex pcriment was conclusive as to this point" Tlio vital force in the nerves of tlio In was capable of acting with speed enough to Induce Iho vibration of the diapluigm necessary to pro.luco sound. "Certainly this rule of speed is much greater than physiologists appear to al low , and It scums reasonable that there is a close allinity between vital energy and electricity. I do not say they are identical ; on the contrary I nay they are very like. If one could learn to make vital energy directly without fuel , that Is without beefsteak in tbo stomach , and in such a manner that the human sys tem could appropriate it , tlio elixir of life would no longer bo a dream of al chemy. But wo have not yet learned to make electricity directly , without the aid of fuel and steam. "I believe this is passible ; indeed , I have boon experimenting in this direc tion for some time past. B'tt until wo can learn to maUo electricity , like na ture , out of disturbed air , J am afraid the moro delicate task of manufacturing vital energy so that it can bo bottled and sold at the family grocery store will have to bo deferred. "Electricity , by the way. is properly merely a form of"energy and not a lluid. As for tlio other which speculative science supposes to exist , I don't know anything about it. Nobody has dis covered anything of the kind. In order to malco their theories hold together they have , it seems to mo , created the other. But the ether imagined by them is unthinkable to me. 1 don't say 1 disagree with them , because I don't pretend to have any theories of that kind and am not competent to dispute with speculative scientists. All I can say is , my mind is unable lo accept the theory. The other , they say , is as rigid as steel ana as soil UH butter. I can t catch on to that idea. "I believe that there are only two things in the universe mailer and en ergy. Matter I can understand to bo in telligent , for man himself I regard as so much matter. Energy I know can take various forms and manifest itself in dilTeront ways. I can understand also that it works not only upon , but through matter. What this mailer is , what this energy is , I do not know. "However , it is possible that it is sim ply matter and energy , and that any de sire to know too much about the whole question should be diagnosed as a dis ease ; such a disoa.se as Gorman doctors are said to have discovered among tbo students of their universities the dis ease of asking questions.

New York Titnos ; Tlio czar is a man of rather limited mental endowments and acquirements , who does not easily sco more than ono thing at a time and who gets to see that slowly. In other words ho is a born ' 'pottoror. " IIo has no idea of system and no executive lal- otit. IIo would not bo selected to man age the alTttirs of a village if ho wore an ordinary citizen. It is tlio very irony of fate that lie has boon made responsible for tbo management of half a million villages. IIo has an abiding sense of the sacredness - ness of this responsibility , and ho toils assiduously over the task as it is given to him to comprehend it. Save for brief periods of holiday-making with his fam ily ho works until 2 or ; i o'clock in the nforning oxaming reports , reading sug gestions , and siuningr papers. No man in the empire is busier than he. The misery of it is that all this irksome labor is of no use whatever. ' So far as the real government of Russia is concerned ho mightjits well bo employed in wheeling bricks"from ono end of a yard to the other und then back again. Even when ono tries to realize what "Russian gov ernment" is like with its vast bureau cracy essaying the stupendous task of maintaining an absolute norsonal super vision over every individual human unit in a mass of a hundred millions , and that through the least capable and most uni formly corrupt ugonts to bo found in the world the mind cannot grasp tbo utter hopelessness of it all. The ablest man over born of woman could do next to nothing with it at least , until ho had cleared the ground by killing borne scores of thousands of olllcors.
