Natural (Jus In Knirlniul.
In the minds of the public natural
gas has always been so intimately
associated with the United States
that information of its existauce in
Knglaiul, for example, comes in the
nature of a revelation.
In Cassier's Magazine, however,
Inverness Watts tells us that natural
gas was discovered in Kast Sussex
as long ago as 1875, when, in mak
ing experiments on the tempera
tu.e in a bore hole at various depths,
and on lowering a light into the
bore tube, an explosion occurred.
Among subsequent further dis
coveries, the most important one
appears to have been made in 1896

The domestication of the Zebra, '
says the Loudon Chronicle, is no I
longer regarded as hopeless, and 1

since 1898, consuming about 1000
cubic feet each night.
More recently many other borings
have been successfully made for
natural gas in various parts of
Sussex, and are likely to have an
important influence in attracting
and developing new industries.
Rehearsed Ills Own Funeral.
Captain A. C. Courtney, who
died in Kansas, was 88 years of age,
the son of a soldier of the Revolu
tionary War and Captain of home
guards during the Civil War. For
Stordy, published in the Journal of
the Society of Arts, we learn that a
serious attempt is being made to
utilize the herds which range in I
the Kast African protectorate.
Under Mr. Stordy's direction a
stockade or lionia was erected in a '
favorable sopt on the Moreudat
river, inclosing an area of about
forty-eight acres. Out of this pro-
jeeted an arm, into which the herds
were to be headed. Four or five

that afforded by the present surface
spring supply. Accordingly a six
inch bore tube was sunk, commenc
ing at the bottom of a sump seventy-
three feet deep, into which the sur
face water had been allowed to flow.
Gas appears to have been discovered
a long time before its inflammable
properties were tested, a strong
odor of gas having been noticed for
some days, but the smell was at
tributed to the presence of "foul
air" in the bore tube.
