Candle Power of the Fire fly's Light. The efficiency of a firefly's light is fifty times that of . our ordinary illumihnntvS.- This jlucs '. not mean that it is fifty times the light. .Messrs. Herbert E.-Ives and C. W. Jordan relate - how : they measured the light of a firefly. They held glow-warms, -which are the larvae of fireflies, and give a steady, un winking light* against a disc of white blotting paper under an il lumination of 190-metre candles, and hy an equation, into which it is unnecessary to go here, calculat ed that the glowworm's light was equivalent to .00-1 (» candle power per srpiara centimetre. "This cal culation is made on the basis of the light furnished by the .glow-worm under natural conditions. Hy var ious kinds of stimulation its bright ness may be much increased. The flash of the firefly is probably many fold, perhaps fifty or one hundred fold, as bright as the steady glow of the' larva.
