The meteorite which fell at Porto

The manufacture of carbon for use
in electric lighting and for other pur
poses has grown to be a great indus
try in the West Virginia gas belt. The
processes require great heat.
Lyman B. (JoiT, a manufacturer of
Pawtucket, K. I., has organized a
"Hoys' Club" which has a nightly at
tendance of 300, and he has deoided to
provide it with permanent quarters
at a cost of $72,000.
A process for rerolling steel rails
has been in usage in the United States
ior several years. Worn-out rails are
reheated and rerolled, and are stated
to be superior for wear in that form
to the rails when first made. The in
ch strv has grown rapidly.
In Russia oil holds absolute sway.
And from Baku to Nishni Novgorod
petroleum finds favor 00 railways and
steamships alike. For 2,000 miles
nlong the Volga boata ply from north

which 8,000,000 tons is used in Russia
In the operation of dredging navi
gable channels at the mouth of the
Moruya and Shoalhaven rivers, in New
South Wales, it was discovered that
the mud contained gold dust. An au
tomatic gold saver was then attached
to the dumping machinery, and it is
estimated that enough gold will thus
te obtained to defray the expenses of
keeping the channels open.
According to 1'rof. Spalding, the
white pine tree seldom attains a height
greater than 160 feet or a diameter of
more than 40 inches. A tree of this
variety once measured by the division
of forestry of the department of agri
culture was 170 feet tall and 48 inches
thick. That tre.- was 4H0 years old.
It was a little sapling 60 years before
Columbus sailed from I'alos. ,
TRICKS WITH FLOWERS.
Color Schemes Unknown In th Floral
World Produced ly the Ilea
The chemical expert has by no means
a monopoly of pretty experiments
evolving marvelous color schemes
hitherto unknown in the floral world.
One artist suggests a simple and in
teresting experiment which is espe
cially successful with pausies, and
which a child' may easily perform.
A saucer, a little ammonia, a flower
or two, and a glass tumbler are all the
implements needed Co enable one to
present a bunch of exquisite green
pan lias to the uninitiated. Such a gift
is sure to awaken much enthusiasm
and test the ability of the recipient to
take a joke, says a New York ex
change. The viola tribe is easily influenced
by the application of chemicals to the
soil or by atmospheric conditions, and
hence is particularly susceptible to the
fumes of ammonia. A little of the
liquid poured into a saucer, with a
bit of paper laid over it, on which to
rest the tiowers, acts very quickly on
the chlorophyll, or coloring matter,
when the fumes the confined by a
tumbler. The reason is this: Chloro
phyll is in its nature acid. The fumes
of ammonia, jii the other hand, are
alkaline, an excels of which first neu
tralizes the acid present in the fresh
Bower, and then changes it to an alka
li. The effect of the alkali varies, of
course, according to the predominat
ing color of the subject.
Kepeated experiments showa marked
tendency toward green, simply be
cause purple and blue are standard
colors among violas and are thus af
fected. A few interesting color changes
are: Shaded purple with white edge
is converted into green, with blue vein
ings and yellow border; maroon
striped, dark green and blue; pale blue
becomes pale green; white always
takes on a yellow tint, and a pretty
cerise comes out in vivid blue. Yellow
Sweet teas are also fertile subjects,
and pung.-iU fumes develop the unex
pected with a rapidity that an expert
hybridizer might envy. Some wonder
ful symphonies in green are evolved
from pink and lavender creations.
Ammonia cannot be said to improve
nasturtiums, but surely produces cu
rious freaks. Yellow blotched red be
comes yellow blotched bronze green,
und a purely flame red a spotted dark
There is, of course, DO permanency in
colors thus enforced. The most won
derful symphonies will hold their own
for a time, but if placed in water in
the open air they will return to nor
mal coloring in a few hours.

What led the secretary to make the

1'rof. Starr, of the University of Chi

og that the marvelous advance of
the Japanese in the learning and civ

proved too rapid ami was making
them the victims of an epidemic of
brain fever that threatened their ex
tinction as a nation.
"Statistics show that students in
Japan arc affected more by eye trou
bles from overstudy than by brain
fever," said Secretary Yomma. "It is
true that our young men are very
studious, but our young women are
not expected to be scholars. They
are encouraged in the cultivation of
feminine graces and charms, and it is
becoming a fad with some of our
statesmen to advocate a liberal mar
