yhy is rain water soft? Bncause it is
not imp'regnaled'with earth and mineralsj
Why Is it more e.-sy-'tJ wash with' soft
water than with hard! Because soft- water
unites freely -with soap, and dissolves it in
stead of decomposing it as hard, water does.
W.hy" do w.66d ashes make hart! water
soft?' 1st. Because the carbonic acid 'of
wood-ashes combines 'With' the sulphate of
lime in the bard water, and converts it into
chalk... -2d. Wood ashes.convert soma of
the, soluble salts of water, jpto insoluhle?
and'thi'ows them down as asediment, by
which the water' remains' more i pure.
Why has rain water such an unpleasant

with decomposed organic matters, washed
from roots, trees or casks in which it "is eoi

Tlie grounds upon which they astr this
