A WOOD THAT NEVER ROTS. Englineers have often to deplore tlhe rotting of railway sloolpers, of piles, and of woodtl usedt to support galler les, in the building of ships, etc. En ginleers, chemists, physicists, btolo gists. doctors, who, for the construc tloll of diverse ;iplaratlls may require a wood possessitlg a nximnllm resist aluce to thle cansz s of destruction, par tIcularly humidlty, are interested in this implortant question of the un putrescibility of woodl. The ideal \wouli be to findt a woodt of a chlarac Ler susceptlble of resisting putrefac Lon natulrally. Now it appears from recent researches thalnt the wood of the itaingrove tree nmay be considered as ablsolutely uniputrescible. Numeor ous sample of mangrove wood (Rhizo phora racemose) sent. froil French Guinea were, in 190t, pilacedt at Col longes (Cote d'Or) in a soaking pit in tihe tdepot of sleepers of the P'aris LSyons-alediterraniean aillway Cor pally.

IIis coat vas our their show windowss, with a full tie scr!ptlon of how it saved the wear er's life. And as a fitlting reward for their enterprise their sales actually doulbled. A \Welsh milller lost a sovereign in a bin of flour, and after spending luany nallltvailintg hours ill search of it told a friend of his misfortune. "Perhapis it will turn utp in one of thile sacks." suggestedtl thie friend, whereupon thile miller was seized with a brilliant idea. lie advertised in the local papers, offering ...
