W. C. T. U. Mid-Year Convention
Sessions in Elm Park Church.
Infcrmentad Article Was Firmly Disap
proved but No Keflalte Aetlon Was
Planned Many Interesting
Topics Considered. '
The mid-year convention of the
Woman's Christian Temperance unions
of Lackawanna and Luzerne counties
began In the Kim Park church yester
day morning and will be continued dur
ing today. Tonight John G. Woolley,
the famous temperance orator, will lec
ture in the Academy of Music under the
auspices of the convention. His sub
ject will bv "Christian Citizenship."
The programme as arranged for yes
terday was carried out almost in its
original form, there being but few dis
appointments by reason of the non-ar-rival
of expected speakers. Mrs. C. I).
Simpson presided.
Devotional exercises led by Mrs. J. M.
Howell, of this city, opened the morn
ing session. A resume of the mid-year
convention of last year was read by
Mrs. Annie Furrey. of W'anamie.. Then
wus presented by Mrs. Howell the sub
ject "Alllllated Interest," in which con
nection Mrs. C. 11. Cool in discussing
the Womau's Temperance Publication
association made un ardent appeal for
more generous support of the associa
ton's publications. She referred es
pecially 1o the Signal and the Bulletin,
the respective organs of the national
and state unions.
Mrs. Francis T. Vail, of this city,
read a paper an the union's hospital in
Chicago which was fuunflVd ten years
ago and had 200 patients last year. It
is the only hospital In the rutted States
where alcohol 'is not used lh treating
Cnfcrmonted communion wines
formed the subject of Mrs. C. H. Cham
berlain, of Kingston, wllo arlirmed that
many men had been led to drink
through the taste acquired at the sac
rament. She said that thirteen unions
In Luzerne county hud inllucnccd about
twenty-tivechurchestoabandon the use
of unfermented wine. In the discussion
which followed. Mrs. Cool urged her
hearers to leave their church rather
than approve by their membership the
use of unfermented wine at commun
ion. One young lady in the audience
averred that a young woman's union,
of which she had been a member, in
duced the pastor of a Massachusetts
church to use water Instead of wine at
the sacrament. Itev. T. M. Furey. who
was asked to speak on the subject,
said he disapproved of the substitution
of water for wine as such action would
destroy the letter and spirit of the
Lord's supper, but he advocated the
use of unferniented wine. Then ensued
a general discussion which did not
bring about any definitely arranged
course of action.
Mrs. Simpson announced the follow
ing committees:

After listening to a recitation by little
Ethel Long, of Kingston, an adjourn
ment for lunch was made. Lunch was
served in one of the church parlors.
The devotional exercises which
opened the afternoon session were led
by Mrs. L. M. tlateu, of tills city. Ad
dresses of welcome were made by Mrs.
VT. tl. Yost and Mrs. C. D. .Simpson.
A period entitled ".Model Mothers'
Meeting" was led by Sirs. E. L. Ste
phens, of Wayne county, nnd Mrs. C.
Frank. Dr. Anna Clark, of this city,
delivered a very sensible talk from a
medical standpoint on 'Teaching
Truth," and Mis. J. J. Rankin, of Haw
ley, read a paper. A considerable
period was devoted to discussing the
benefits of sclentitie. temperance In
struction and the best means for milk
ing such instruction general. At 4. 45
o'clock the session adjourned.
The evening session wns tinder the
auspices of the Elm Park Epivorih
league, and included a discussion
opened by Hev. J. K. Eckman on the
best metliodH to abolish the liquor traf

What It Is, How It Was Made and What
It Alcana-Aa Explanation Which Can
Be Understood by All.
Columns of academic discourse con
cerning the so-called Roentgen, or N.
rays have left many people confused
rather than Instructed. It has re
mained for Professor Henry Crew, of
Northewestern university, at Evanston,
III., to put the subject in a light com
prehensible to laymen. "It is to be
presumed," says Prof. Crew, "that
everyone knows that the chief source
of popular interest in X rays lies in the
possibility of their application in va
rious arts and applied sciences. The
fact that a human hand was one of
the first objects photographed by Ro
entgen apiiears to have been a some
what important factor in producing
this tide of :ubllc enthusiasm. 1 say
this because Lenard, at Bonn, some two
years ago, had made silhouettes with
cathode rays, and had shown that these
rays would easily pass through an
aluminium sheet placed in front of the
photographic plate.
"In scientific circles, interest In this
discovery of Lenard's was both wide
spread and deep. Lenard's paper was
translated into both English and
French Journals of bclence, but the
newspapers had not a word to say
about It. Now that everyone is read
ing whole columns about X rays. It
may be worth while to say a word
about the history of the case and then
a word about the present status of the
case. In general It may be said that
the physicist finds these rays quite a
ptiKzle, for the simple reason that ho
does not know just where to 'pigeon
hole' them. The combination of prop
erties which they possess is something
very novel,
VAcrrsr tpbes.
"A 'vacuum tube' Is one from which a
part of the gas it once contained has
been punuied out. When the 'vacua'
thus produced are moderately high, nnd
the tube made of fluorescent glass, the
combination Is generally called a 'CioiK
sler tube.' after C'eirsler, a skillful me
chanician at I'.onn. if, however, the
vacua are pushed much higher, so that
only one-nillliontli, or less, of the orig
inal gas remains, the tube is called a
Vrookes tube,' after the well-known
Engll:-li cl-emiKt. William Crookes.
"Slaxwcll says the word 'cathode'
wuh coined by Faraday and Whewell
conjointly. U Is used to dcsclbe the
end of t!ie wire by which tile electric
current leaves the tube, it liieunH in
Greek 'a road leading out of.' If now n.
metallic object be scaled r.n in one of
these Crookes tubes I'm shadows may
be easilv seen ir.ion that nart o! the
wull of the tube opno-K.. ,.otv-..ri .
so soon as ti liip;li voltage current is
passed tmoii;;li the tube. J uc i.ys
which produce Ibis shadow- and which
evidently originate on the cathode are
known as 'cathode rays." our knowl
edge of the existence of these ir.yi
and our miiio'.i knowledge of their
properties i: due to Crookes and Ilit
tovf. "The behavior of this highly rare
fied nmtier (perhaps groM.i mutter, per
haps clhti) wus so unique that It re
ceived a special name ni;l lias been
known for tunny yea;:! us 'iimHc In the
radiant condition,' or. more briclly, 'ra
diant matter. It has been culled also
the 'fourth state of matter' to dis
tinguish It from the oilier three solid,
liquid and gustiuis.
"The m xt lin'ioriiiiil property of
these rays was discovered by the la
mented Herla i:i the iiutii'i;n of I'm.

the Cnlveralty of Bonn. lie Hint

certanly very icmarkablc behavior for
panicles of mutter, al len-t for par
ticles of v matter. So strange.
Indeed, was tb!:t nroperLy of cathode
rays thr.l many thought It gave the
d-uthl.l.ov to Cinokes' view viz. : that
these rays are streams of highly rare
lied but ordliiary matter. Hertz
thought ef them as di? lurhances in the
ether. It was shoivu, however, on the
other hand, ti .it these rn.vs could be re
flected by a magnet, just ui. a copper
wire conveying a current would be.
And this act lod id hers to maintain the
older view-viz.: that cathode rays
were strcamu of matter hi 1 1 1 - ordinary
"The next Important step was made
by I.iiuird, now tit Aix la chapelb-,
then at I'.onn p.s nsskitunt to Hertz.
Lenard. in the latter part of IS!):!, suc
ceeded in gvtliii), these cathode rays
out of the tube In which they were gen
erated. Tin Ir study thus became u
matter of com. a i ill lee ease, Lcntird
says It was at the s.un;vstioii of Iferii:
that lie sealed an uluioliiiillii window
Into the walls of Ids Crookes tube and
thus provided an exit for the cathode
rays. A somewhat cuitohs window:
one perfectly air tijtlit and pe.-fictly
opiiitue to llrrht of all known kinds.
'"i'iie rays once outriiiie, i.ciiurd quick
ly discovered new and startling prop
erties In them, one is the fuct alluded
to above, that these rays will pass,
through substances perfectly opaque
to ordinary light, and still affect the
photographic plate.
"Some .substances, especially denso,
were found to be less transparent to
cathode rays, so that one could obtain
silhouettes of these latter substances
eVen In daylight.
"The state of the question remained
practically as described until the be
ginning of this year, when Roentgen,
a physicist long known and highly es
teemed In the scientific world, showed
that rays which are in very many re
spects similar to those which Lenard
had studied could be observed through
out a veiy large region roundabout un
ordinary Crookes tube. Hut In two
features, at teast, these new rays are
quite different from cathode rays. They
are not appreciably delleeted by a mag
net, nor are they so readily absorbed
by air as are cathode rays.
"These differences (each of them pos
sibly only differences of degree) are all
important from the practical stand
point, in the present state of ignor
ance as to the Identity of these rays
Roentgen has proposed the name 'X
"Roentgen's paper describing quite
fully his numerous experiments will be
found in Nature, Jan. 23. 18!I6. It Is a
model for any worker In science. For
Professor Roentgen has followed the
advice of Sir Philip Sidney and has
been 'rather doing things worthy to
bee written, then writing things fltte
to lie done.'
"Some of the questions, then, upon
which one is bound to withhold judg
ment are these:
"1. Are not X rays possibly a modified
form, an extreme type, of course, ot
cathode rays in air? The authority of
Roentgen himself Is against this view.
"2. Are these rays to be considered a
phenomenon of the ether or of ordin
ary matter?
"3. If they belong to the ether, do they
belong to any form of radiation now
known, or, may they possibly be some
thing entirely new?"

An Attempt to Revive the Oil Kpisode.
Chuflnc-Dish Lecture for Sled and
Women Tonifiht Candv Lec
ture This Moraine.
Another large audience, in fact the
largest of the week, attended Mrs. Ror
er's cooking lecture yesterday after
noon. The thing hns got to be more
than a fad now, although many ladles
Joined the class early in the week sim
ply because It offered something new.
Everybody at once became interested
and are attending the last of the lec
tures because of their great worth. The
value ot the cookins exhibitions does
not rest solely upon Mrs. Rorer'a art;
that she is a good cook goes without
saying, but she lias the happy faculty
of talking without being tiresome, and
is able to instruct and Illustrate at one
and the same time.
Mrs. Rorer hud been requested to
qualify her statements of Wednesday
that pure olive oil is not on sule in
grocery stores or by Jobbing houses and
to read a telegram from a well-known
New York wholesale house offering to
forfeit $100 If its oil was not pure. She
declined before the lecture began to do
either, and when, during the lecture,
an elderly woman arose and started to
read the New York telegram, the wo
man w as requested by Sirs. Rorer to re
main silent. So the episode ended, and
was not referred to during the after
noon. .... Ol
Tonight, beginning at 8 o clock, will
be given a chutlng dish lecture, which
will be attended by gentlemen a well
as ladles. The admission fee will be 60
cents, which will also be chanted for
attendance at tomorrow mornings
candv lecture, to be given especially for
young ladles, although other persons
will be welcomed. These are extra lec
tures, which are not included in the
course tickets.

Sam T. Jack has several good com
panies on the road but none is more
entertaining than the one which
Willi be seen at Music Hall tonight and
tomorrow afternoon and night in
"Sly t'ncle from New York." a com
edy by Harry Montague. The plot of
the skit runs like this: "My Uncle" Is a
60-year-oid bachelor, hat) a wild, hut
well-meaning nephew. The nephew
squeezes money out of the uncle on the
pretense that he is married and has
two children, who are named, at the
suggestion of the uncle, Jeremiah and
Dorothy.The undo suddenly drops in on
his nephew at the latter's home in San
Francisco. Then the fun begins. The
bogus married man scrapes up a family
among his acquaintances and palms
them off on his uncle as his own. A
woman with Spanish blood In her viens
and a dagger in her shoe, gives the
scheme away and there is trouble. It
all ends happily, however, and In a
laughable way. The company Is a
clever one. Songs and snecaltles are
introduced and a pood show grlven
throughout. Among the members
of the company Is James St urges
who will be remembered by Scran
