It may seem strange, aaya the Toron
to Monetary Times, that there Is in the
banka of Canada a sum approachhiK
1400,000 in 189o it reached $427,108 and
1807 it was $.187,(568 consisting of un
claimed balancea. The sums are vari
ous, ranging from one cent or a frac
tion of a dollar to tnousauas oi aoi
lars. One wonder how many of these
balancea arise. We have been told
that many an old man or old woman
will make deposits and not wishing
their relatives to know of their sav
logs, will say nothing' about the fact.
Should such old persona die the only
way in which this deposit could' prob
ably become known, would be througn
the list of auch sums published annual
ly. Again, there are numbers oi per
aona who, having long bad an account
with a bank, will draw all their money
except one or two dollars. This helps
to account for many a amall aum.
Naturally, tbe older banks have the
larger accumulation of unclaimed
money in this or other ways. The
Bank of Montreal and Ihe British
bank have large tuma, but the city dis
trict saving bank exceed either of
them, having nearly 4,000 separate un
claimed balances, the aggregate of
which is over $80,000. It is only of late
years that the government of Canada
haa busied itself in taking'custody of
.the funds. Not, presumably, that
they were unsafe in the hands of the
banka, but perhaps that it waa a pa
ternal duty of the state to control

It may not generally be known that
for many years 'the general govern mn.t
haa conducted a savings bank for the
accommodation of certain citizens, soys
the Kansas City Journal. An act of
congress of the date ot May IS, 1873,
provides that any soldier in the army
may deposit with any paymaster hi
savings In sums not less than five dol
lars, aud it shall be the duty of thepny
master to srupply the soldier with a de
posit book, in which are entered the
amounts of hla deposits. When the de
posits have readied the sum of $90 the
government ia required to pay the de
positor interest at the rate of four per
orat. per annum. Having once acposiv
ed a sum of money the depositor is not
permitted to draw it until the date of
his discharge. The deposits are exempt
from attachment for debt, but they for
feit to the government if the depositor
deserts from the army. The govern
ment assumes the responsibility tor all
such deposits and a defaulting paymas
ter can work the soldier no injury,

Prof. IhisenK. of. the late college.
Pennsylvania, gives an interesting ex
nlanation. of. the difference between
anthracite and bituminous coal, so far
is the gases are concerned, his opinion
being based on tbe supposition of all .
coal beds, having, been originally
formed, on a horizontal or flat bed.
The anthracite bedvh assumes, were
placed under enormous pressure, or
side pressure, by. the contraction ot
the earth's crust during the cooling
itage, thus forming the coal basins as
now seen at the toot ol tne mountains;
such an enormous pressure resulted in
forcing the explosive and other gases
out of the an.tbra.cite beds to the seams
and crevices ot the veins and to the
fissures, seams and pores of the rock
strata. This compression has been so
great that gases in the anthracite re
gion are sometimes found with the
mighty pressure of 17,000 pounds to the
square inch. On the other hand, thS
bituminous beds have not neen suo
jected to such a disturbance and pres
sure, and the coal, therefore, retains
the gases which it contained original
ly. White damp. Prof. Ihlseng shows,
is produced by imperfeot combustion,
while black damp is produced by per
fect combustion, and destroys life by
kcing devoid of sustaining elements.
