GAS WITHOUT COAL.
.Journal of Commerce.
The Jjodoii Journal 'Nature,' describe
and ipvaki approvingly of a new gaa of
this description. The Inventor, Mr.
Ruck, obtains his hydrogen iy passing
steam through incandescent coke, nnd
fregmcnti oi iron mixed, and tho oxygen ni
the decomposed water attaches itself to
the Iron, forming icaUi of black
ruit, and then the hydrogen panes iutc.
a purifying chamber in a comparatively
frto condition. Tho effect of tho Iron Is
to promote tho perfect separation ol the
two gaici composing water that work
being moro tardily donu by tho action of
the red-hut coke alone. The cLargcs '
iron and cokn In the retorti does not need
to bo renewed for several weeks. Tho gas,
ready to do healing work, burns with
a palo hydrogen llamo streaked with a few
green lines of the incandescent carbonic
oxide. This heating gas is said to cost,
lor making, Til. per l,un0 cubic feet, which
sufflies to boll about fifty gallons of cold
water. Ry n lamillar arrangement It
can bo used in ttovei and firc-placci. For
lighting purtioiei, this hydrogen gai it
made to bubblo through n res
ervoir containing rectified pe
troleum of a specific gravi
ty of about 0.080, and l then ready for
circulation nnd consumption, and ii re
ported by nature to havo an Illuminating
jwworor 1CJ cnndlei ' good itaudardj,
with a llow of five cubic feet an hour In
an Argand burner. In tbli form the gas
coils less than la. 8J. per 1,000 cubic leet j
tho cost of ordinary coal-manufactured
gas In London being 2s. Id., when coal
is 20s atoii. It takes a gallon and u half
of petroleum to chargo 1,000 feet of tho
healing gai, anJ In the proceis tho latter
li increased In volume 133,000 feet of
that gai being augmented to 103,000 feet
of illuminating gai after it has been en
riched bv the petroleum. Its merlta
aro slmp'lv questions of fact, nnd it
Is to be judged by Itielf and not bv tbo
failure of any other gales. One udvan
tage of the now advantage il tho com
paetneis ol the neccsiary work; thoso at
ilattorsea occupy nbf.ut tho space of an
ordinary steam-egin of 20 or 30 hone
power, and are large enough to supply gas
to a town of 4,000 inhaltants. There-
markahlo statement Ii alio ma.ie tnal
thu servlins of twenty-nlna Out
of every thirty laborers employed In tho
old process of coal distillation can be dli
tiensed with. If nil Ihe'e thinci aro true
nnd wo confesi It taxei our credulity to
believe the half of the' then tho gai
builness is on the eva of revolution long

TinfoLD AND THE NEW.
No candid reader, who hui thoughtfully
observed, or attentively followed tho
cours ol recent sciuniitlic investigation,
will havo failed to discern, that many of
the tu-culled unprejudiced obiervors Have
evidently laborod under tho promptings
of tamo other purpose than tho direct ei
tabllihment of fact. Thcio "students of
nature," wbllo boldly proclaiming tuein
telves honest seekers alter truth, aro to
evidently tho ardent disciples of iomo
L-lioal ol pbllosonliv . or ino caccr cuam-
ptoni of some new and doubtful theory of
ictence. ioiutse men, ii may juuu
trorn their written nnd proclaimed opin
ion! creed nnd faith aro evil-ioundlng
und hateful wordi they accept nothing
that cannot bo nrovcu bv actual experi
mental tests, and deny nothing save that
which cecins to conaict witn tneio test" as
by them annlied. Wero it not that tho
world demands of it teachers a practice
by which their theories or creeds may no
interpreted and enforced, tho professions
of thio reformers would meet with a
moro general aod hearty recognition
than they havo yet received. Unfor-
naloly for tho establishment of their
theories, however, It too often follows that
a carclul unalysis of tho nrgumont, which
thu student would have us beliovu is ad
vanced solely In tbo interest of truth, ro
veuls the fact that tbo concluiions roaehod
aro such as shall aid In tho euppart or do
fenco of somo doubtful theory or voguo
hypothesli. On proclaiming this fact, and
accompanying it with a hearty word of
warning, "it ii done, not a3 againit tho
claims of puro science, than which none
aro moro worthy of a eandld considera
tion by every thoughtful mind; but
rather that tho untrained obierver rany bo
on his guard ngainst a too ready accep
tance of every new and doubtful theory.
When one of 'tboio modern expounders
ices lit to prefneo bis tneiis with the self
satisfying announcement, that, ir all his
labors he hai boon prompted tolely by an
inherent lovo of truth, and then brings all
tho for.'e of his reason togethor, with tboio
convenient weapons be calls "facts," to
boar ngainst beliofs and sentiments, tbo
most honored and cherished among men,
it is our right and duty
to look to that man's motive.
When wo aro told, as was recently pro
claimed by a well-known Reston profes
sor, that "Faith Is bankrupt and her ac
counts aro under strict oxamlnallon to determine-
what nisoW.remain to b,e distribu
ted among tho impoverished souls that are
hor debtors', It Is well that wo do not per
mit tho startling nnd apparently honest
character of .the ituUmoiit, to lead us
away from tho possible purpose which
prompted its ntteranco. Seo to it, that
while with Ills right hand, tbli roformor Is
tearing away tho tlmo-honored vestmonti
of a cherished faith thoro bo not con
coaled in his left a now thrcad-bnro liv
ery, fashioned to the fancy of this eager
dliclplo. Mark well, that when your
faith Is Mucked, it bo not in tho Interest
of his theory ; and, abovo all; look to It.
lost in tho nccoptanco of theso doubtful
surmises of a pioudo rclonce, thero may
