Sulphur Is bolng tried In Germany
as n wood preservative, u Is applied
lu molten form and as It hardens It
completely fills tho pores. At moder
ate temperatures It Is unaffected by
wntor, weak or strong acids, or alka
lino solutions. A disadvantage Is that
tlio sulphur melts nt 115 degrees F anil
this makes tho treated wood unfit for
plnccs exposed to cotwldcrablo hent.
Tho best wood for uso with this pro
cess Is poplar, tho trials of oak and
plno having been much less satisfactory.
A larpo steamship has recently been
constructed ou tho Tyno having no
masts nt all. Instead of masts 'lie
vessel Is furnished with four large pll

two forward und two aft, which servo
as dorrlck posts. The two forward pll
lurs are connected by a bridge, CO feet
nbovo tho water, which may bo usi'd
for lookouts. Tho vessel Is 42 feot
Jong una 04 feet broad, nnd Is to uo
used In tho far East to carry bulky car

provided for 850 emigrants. Another
vessel of tho smile typo Is building.
J. 12. Thornycroft, au English author

attempts to adapt tho internal cotnbu

this aduptotlon may cow be regarded
us an accomplished fact Trials made
between Hamburg and Kiel with a mo
tor of 70 horse-power showed that the
gus-propelled boat consumed S30 pounds
of anthracite, as against 1,820 pounds
of steam coul consumed by a steamboat
of practically the same dimensions and
junking tho same speed. Giia-eii'glncs
of from COO to 1,000 horse-power for
marine uso aro now being constructed
lu England, and Mr. Thornycroft ox

Many precious stones aro Influenced
by the action of tho rays emanating
from radium. A scientist exposed a
colorless diamond from IJorneo to Uiet-e
rays. Tho stone was colored a light
yellow after eight days and a decided
lemon yellow after another eight days.
On heating tho diamond to 250 degrees
centigrade (482 degrees Fahrenheit)
Uio yellow color was diminished, but it
could not bo entirely got rid of even
at a red heat A colorlcw Drazll dia
mond showed no coloration. A peculiar
behavior was shown by a pale blue
sapphire from Ceylon. After two houw'
exposure to radium bromldo It showed
a coloration, green at first, then light
yellow nnd after a fow more hours red
dish yellow. After a fortnight It was a
dark yellow, approaching chestnut
Tho color could bo got rid of by heat

In Smlthflcld. Mad
ison County, New
York, May 22,
1837, and spent
his boyhood on a
farm there. At 17
ho left homo and
was employed In a
store In a neighbor

AiiiON t. nuns. breaking out of the
Civil War ho was one of the first to
enlist In tho Tenth New York Heavy
Artlllory mid after ho had rendered
material assistance lu recruiting tho
regiment to its full strength he was
mado first lieutenant Within a year
bravery lu action had gained for htm a
commission as captain. At fleam's Sta
tion, In Virginia, ho was captured nnd
was confined In prison nt Salisbury,
Andorsouvllle, Macon, Charleston and
Columbia, escaping from the latter after
being .confined eight mouths. While lu
prison tho presldoutlnl election of 18)1
was held. A black bean meant a voto
for Lincoln, but the prisoners wcro as
sured that If they cast such a voto It
would mean longer Imprisonment for
them and perhaps a gravo ou tho hill
side. Nevertheless Bliss voted tho
black boan. After making his escape
ho wandorcd for eight days boforo
reaching tho Union lines at Savanusih
nnd ho was nearly starved.

A hypothesis that the sense of colors
la possessed to a high degree by animals
and especially by birds furnished a
basis for some of the most beautiful
and fecund of the Darwinian theories
of sexual selection. No Darwinist
doubts that the brilliant colors of mala
birds are to attract tbe attention of the
female birds, and this presupposes nat
urally on the part of these birds a fine
sense of color.
Wallace has asserted that to the fact
that certain plants boar fruit of bril
liant colors is due their preservation;
tho animals, attracted by these colors,
break the fruits from the trees or
plants, carry them off and thus Indirect
ly assist In Iho dissemination of the
seeds which they contain over large
tracts of land. And this function of
selection on the part of animals pre
supposes In them a certain sense of
color. Still, scientific documents la sup
port of these hypotheses are rare.
Dahl, alluding to the scarcity of them
In an article In a recent number of the
Naturwlssenshaftllche Wockenschlft re
lates some Interesting experiments
which he made with a monkey. He col
ored some sweets with a certain colored
dye and some bitter substances with
that of another color and declares that
after a few attempts the monkey learn
ed to leave without even tasting these
articles of food colored with the dye
-which Indicated bitter-tasting sub
stances and seized at onqe upon those
which Indicated sweets.
Varying the experiments sufficiently,
he found that the monkey distinguished
all the different colors readily save
only dark blue., Dabl calls attention to
tho fact that Mayer has stated that
many savage tribes cannot distinguish
dark blue from black and that even
children do not distinguish this color
until later than all others. Scientific
A story is told of a certain candidate
