After distillation the refluod oil Is no
longer green, but Is as transparent as
ipring water and beautifully tinged
with purples and blues. It Is not yet
ready for use, however, since It must
be "washed." Tbe fluid Is emptied into
a large circular tank In which it is
treated with acids, these being poured
In and mixed with It by means of pow

When it has been well shaken It is
allowed to settle, and the adds then

TIGER PROOF HOMES.
Malay Houte, Frail and Flimsy,
Sometimes Perch In Tree Tops.
Tbe ordlunry Malay house is built on
posts from five to seven feet high, but
one which I came across was perched
high up in a tree. It was the home of
a roan, his wife and family, and they
Informed me that It was placed In this
unusual situation so as to be out of the
way of the numerous tigers which then
Infested the neighborhood.
As tigers have been known to Jump
eighteen feet In vertical height some
where about twenty feet Is considered
to be the limit of safety. The Malnyao
hous? is a fruli and flimsy structure of
sticks tied together with rattan thatch
ed with palm leaves and walled with
plaited bamboo or, as in this case, with
tbe bark of trees.
It is therefore an easy matter for a
tiger with its great strength to break
Into a bouse and attack tbe Inhabitants.
Many instances of this have been re
corded in Malaya. In one well known
case a whole family were killed except
one man, who, climbing up into the
roof and thus escaping the notice of
the tiger, was a horrified observer of
tbe cruel mauling and ultimate slaugh
ter and devouring of his relatives.

Lit Without Microbe.
Microbes are not Indispensable to all
life if they are indispensable to any.
Tbe question has been definitely set
tled. A rage completely sterilized at
90 degrees was made and the open
ings of the cage closely stopped with
cotton and protected from tbe outside
by a hermetically closed metallic cham
ber. Such manipulations as were nec
essary in onlng the cage were made
by bands guarded by aseptic rubber
cloth. Into such a sterilized cage three
bens' eggs were placed after having
been externally sterilized. The cage
was fitted with a glass pavilion or
chicken run, where the chickens could
develop during their six weeks' sojourn
in the cage. In the cape were sterilized
air, pure water, sterilized sand nud
sterilized feed. Tbe exix'tiiiient showed
that life does not depend uxn mi
crobes, but that the vital work of the
organism Is easy and natural when
everything is sterilized. -Hurler's.
Ratio of Pdlorie.
Though the pillory bns been nbollsn
ed, there are still to be found In vari
ous parts of rural England relics of
this old time method of punishment.
One of the most complete examples
may be seen within a few nilics of tht
metropolitan border. In the pictur
esque village of Itoydon, Essex, not
only are tbe old stocks and whipping
post still preserved, but close beside
them stands also the wooden "cage"
In which the roysterer of bygone days
was incarcerated. Is there another
such Interesting trio of punitive relics
to be found elsewhere In Euglund?

That t lie general trend of business
