of a young man with a leaning to
ward photography and an Insatiable
curiosity. looking for a suitable
light for night picture taking, Roy
Mott, a young research engineer of
Cleveland, Ohio, tried hollowing out
the carbons of arc lamps and filling
them with various substances. When
he found the light he sought, he
continued experimenting. One of his
chance discoveries was u light that
duplicated sunshine even more
closely than the old-type all-car

Other types of carbons have been
developed for special medical uses.
One Is filled with an Iron core,

especially for rickets, is filled with
several metals. A carbon cored with
the metal strontium gives a red
light containing heat rays that re- j

(Baskervill In News.)
Raleigh, March 8 — If the Gener
al assembly stays In session much
unger Governor O. Max Gardner
may have all his appointments to
make over again, despite the fact
that none have been announced yet.
In the last day or two there have
been indications that there is a de
finite movement on foot to block
the transfer of R. A. Doughtoii
from his present post of commis
sioner of revenue to chairman of
the highway commission, as has
been scheduled. Until the last few
days it has been conceded in cir
cles close to Governor Gardner that
Doughton would be appointed
chairman of the highway commis
sion. In fact, for a time this ap
pointment was to. have been an
nounced last week and commission
er Doughton was all ready to move
down to the highway commission.
However, Governor Gardner has
remained firm In his intention not
to announce any of his appointment
until after the general assembly ad
journs, and in the meantime those
who are especially interested In see
ing Doughton remain on as com
missioner of revenue are doing
everything possible to dissuade him
from accepting the high commis
sion appointment and to get hire
to remain in the revenue depart
