[In Keely's jargon] "Elements are defined as simple substances out of which no other two or more essentially differing substances have been obtained. Compounds are bodies out of which two or more essentially differing substances have been obtained. A molecule is the smallest part of a compound or element that is capable of existence in a free state. Atoms are set down, by those who believe in the atomic theory, as the indivisible constituents of molecules. Thus, an element is a substance made up of atoms of the same kind, a compound is a substance made up of atoms of unlike kind." [HYDROGEN - Snell]
