the stronar arms now folded over the
heart never to beat again. Tho girl
would eo out in the small stable, and,
laying her head on the oJd horse's
shoulder, sob and cry as u her noart

home, for her mother was broken in
health and spirits, and never ccasea to
mourn for her boy. All tho work of

people of that ilk, aro very anxious to

Considerable quantities of beauti
ful objects of artificial amber are now
being produced in Vienna. Tho sub
stance employed in its manufacture is
chielly colophony or resin, obtained by , .
decomposition of turpentine, though
several other ingredients aro used to
give it the requisite qualities. Tho im-.
nation is said to be perfect, and the ..
production has even tho eloctrio prop
erties of amber. Ingenious manufac
turers' have even introduced into the
substance foreign bodies, insects, etc.,
to make the similarity more striking.
Natural amber requires a temperature
of 285 to 287 degrees C. to fuse it, while
tho imitation becomes liquid at a much
lower temperature. 1 "

which, when distiliod to recover the

amounts to 8 per cent, of the original "

caustic alkalies, and is precipitated from
these solutions by acids. Hydrate of
