Oiling the Waters When the Seas Are
When the captain of a wave beaten
ship pours oil upon the waters he does
not empty a barrel of keroqene over
the side. He has somebody''stitch up
three or four cotton bags, which he
fills first with oakum and then with
oil. usually equal parts of fish oil and
kerosene. The bags are then tied
tightly at the tops and pricked.all over
with a sail needle to permit the oil to
exude and are hung from the be:'
davits and weather chains to drip their
contents on the raging billows. The
bags must not be allowed to get emp
ty, but must be refilled every two
hours. For six bags ten gallons of
oil are used in thirty hours. Some
times if it is very cold the oil congeals
and will not run out through the holes
fast enough. and the mouth of the
bag Is then loosened to let it escape
In that way. Its effect Is magical on
a rough sea. A huge comber will
arise, threatening to bury the laboring
vessel under tons of water, but will

Relative Hardness of Precious Stones.
The relative hardness of various
stones is easily determined by testing
the power of one stone to make
scratches on another. If a diamond Is
rubbed with one of the points of a
topaz, the topaz point is blunted and
the mark which will be seen on the
face of the diamond is only the dust
of the topaz, which can be brushed off
with the finger. But if the topaz is
rubbed against the diamond the lat
ter is unaltered and the surface of the
former is marked with a scratch
which can be removed only by fur
ther polishing down. It is on the basis
of this process of comparison that a
scale of comparative hardness has
been formed represented by ten sub
stances. of which diamond is the high
est and graphite the lowest in the
scale. It is a curious fact that these
