In London, a Frenchman claims he has discovered how to
turn mercury into gold and radium. Chemists say the sam-;
pies he submits back up his claim, prove it, if the samples
are bona fide.
The .result of such a discovery? Just a matter of artih-
metic. Mercury costs about 70 cents a pound. Gold costs
roughly, $25 an ounce.
Suppose some one does discover how to turn mercury,
lead or some other substance into gold — the long-sought
goal of medieval alchemists.
The world immediately would have a financial panic that
would make previous panics look like boom times.
For the whole system, being based on gold, would topple.
An interesting problem would arise for us. Gold held in

! Gold and money are separate things. Gold is the trick
mechanism by which you can control money, says Edison.
Edison thinks humanity and the products of the soil should
be the bases of money.
Fear caused gold to become the balses of money.
All men have the desire to get rare things. One of the
rarest is gold. Its scarcity brought it into use as a measure
of values, as medium of exchange, as a.sort of guaranty
that commodities received would be paid for in equivalent
commodities or service.
A Chinese wanted to buy Arabian horses. Said the Arab:
*How do I know you 11 ship me back some silk in exchange
lor my horses?”
Said the Chinese: Here, take this handful of the rare
substance, gold. Tou know that, to get my valuable gold
back, I’ll have to send the silks.*
That is the principle on
