to a Sanitarium.
William R. Triixton, jr.,a member or the
finn of Oindoiff i Truxton, dealers in
agncult nra! implements at No. 207 Sevcnt h
street nonliwcst, was tak?n to a priw.ro
sanitarium, near Baltimore, yesterday, lie
lias a mental disorder which leads luin
to belli vc that he 1st a millionaire.
AVhile a man in comfortable circum
stances, his friends liave noticed during
the lost few months J hat h2 wasextremely
lavisli with hi- nu.ney, Kpendiug it without;
stint, and maMnc purchases of articles
for -v hid: he lud no ue. He told his
friends that, lie ivafe a millionaire, and
coiilo buy nnj thing that lie cared for, and
that lil ina me was inexhaustible.
It was first noticed that .Mr. Truxton-
mind was deranged last siininier at Atlantic
City, wheic he made large and extensive
purchase, lived most extravagantly, and
during the shoit time that lie spent at the
lesort expended nearly ?2,000.
Xot loug ago lie announced his Intention
of donating $2,000 to the Assoelued
Cliaiities, and Secretary Wilson, for a
time, wfts led to believe tliat the corrers
of the chaiity buicau were to be hand
somely incieabed. A few days since
.Mr. Truxton pui chased upward of $3,000
woith of diamonds and jeweliy at Harris
& tih.'.ftrs, which he said lie intended
to bestow as Clnistmas presents. It is
thought that his malady is not of a per
manent nature ana that he will rccowr.
The Products From Wood.
(Fiom the Boston Transcript)
It isnot Kcnurally known that over ixty
per cent of wood iuay be con'ertcd into
liftuid The strongest hydraulic pcrssure
would not squcc7cone-ialf of 1 percent
of moisture from dry wood, but by put
ting the .sunc iratcrJal inU an iron re
tort and converting it into charcoal by
mean.s of heat, the gases and smoke, to
the extent of fully 65 per cent of the
weight of the wood, m.iy be condensed
into liquid called pyroligneous acid, and
700 pounds of charcoal. The pyroligneous
acid from one cord of -wood produces nine
gallons or 62 per cent crude wood alcohol,
200 pounds of acetate of lime, and about
25 gallons of tar, besides 35 bushels of
charcoal After the pyroligneous acid
is neutralized -with lime, the Wood nlmluii
is distilled off, the lime holding the acetic
add in iohilion.
After the xeparation of the wood spirit
the roniaJninp liquid is boiled down jn
opn pans to a sugar, which is dried ana
becomes the acctat9 of lime of commerce.
Aeetato of lime Is used for making acetic
held. Fully three-fifths of all the wood
alcohol rnd acetate of lime produced in
the world mo made in the United States,
Fully 15,000 acres per year are cleared
for this pupcirse. AVood alcohol oirords
