Ingenuity of the Anaru Worker,
The ingii)iiily of tho agito worker is
not conlineU merely to cutting, eiirvinj
and polishing bis inaterinl into all man
tier of shapes, lie hai also siieeedod in
varying its cidor by artificial nieaiis
i in- niynrs coiiijiosiii iiu ugate vary
coiismeruoiy 111 porosity, tno.-o tljttt (in
trnnspareiit, for example, being less jio.
roiis than opamm layers. Some, iie
deed, seem to bo altogether impervious
nt ordinary ircssuro and temperature
ntnl again workers both ut Oberstoin
and in India have availed themselves of
this peculiarity in applying the staining
processes, a Hintnijlo agate, after be
Ing thoroughly dried, is immersed in r
mixture of honey and water or in olivo
oil, and is kept thus for nt least thren
days, exposed to a moderate heat. It is
tin mi washed, dried, and put into a ves
sel containing euoiigh sulphuric acid to
cover it. 1 he vessel is then exposed to
a goutlo heat for a varying number of
hours, when tho porous layers are found
to have become niiieli darker 111 color.
The reason of this is that these layers
having become completely saturated
with the sirup of oil, are acted upon by
the sulphuric acid which decompose
the sugary or oily coiistituentand form J
in its place a deposit of carbon. It is
in this way that banded ngato is ron
vei ted into onyx, with its black mid
white layers, used in the production of
caiiu'oes and intaglios.
Exposure to strong sunlight was long
ago found to give 11 reddish tint to gray
colored agates, and this suggested the
burning of such stones to convert them
into earnelians. At Obcistein, likely
stones for this purpose are first dried
thoroughly, then saturated in sulphuric
acid, and afterward exposed in an
earthenware crucible to a red heat.
They are allowed to cool slowly, and
are then seen to be of a bright red col
or. Not content with imitating the
rarer natural varieties of agate, such as
onyx and carnelian, German nianiif c
tnrers have taken to staining agates
blue and nil sorts of colors unknown in
the natural stones. Analiiie dyes, us
unnatural as they are fugitive, have al
so been lately used for agato staining.
It is possible that the stones themselves
may yet be artificially produced. In
deed according to King, a Florentino
anatomist long ago accomplished this
feat, although, unfortunately the secret
died with him. He is said to have pet
rified human viscera into real agates.
"In the hospital of San Spirito may bo
inspected still by the incredulous,"
says King, "a tabic top made up of
hearts, lungs, livers, etc., thus agatized
into one large slab meet board for a
banquet of vampires!'' Organic re
mains in agates are not unknown, for
Bowerbank states that in tho moss ag
ates of Oberstein lie lias found micro
scopic organisms, and Dr. Heddle that
lie has found undoubted organic re
mains of considerable size in agates
from Ayrshire and other localities.
Pleuhonton'H Hlue Glass.
The blue-glass theory still lives,
crown, it is said, to be a theory no
more. While a thousand scientists from
dill'erent parts of the world are fiin;
off their little pet theories about every
thing in tho heavens above and the
earth beneath, the mild Ocn. A. J.
l'leasonton, with his blue plassy eyes
shaded by his broad-brimmed lii'h lint,
takes his accustomed constitutional
down Spruce .street iu the curly morn
ing, serene in the consciousness that as
many practical results have followed his
idea as any outside tho realm of me
chanical science that the big scientilic
congress now in session bus to deal
with. Though so many forms of the ap
plication of electricity are disclosed at
the exhibition in progress, Gen. rieas
onton thinks his little blue-glass wrink
le has as manv valuable electric kinks
in it as the Ellison light, for instance,
and will prove us valuable to mankind.
All the good that comes from his com
bination of blue and sunlights ho be
Mevcs results from electricity.
This theory of General l'leasonton's
will be actively revived at tin1 approach
ing State Tail", where there has been a
building erected in which he proposes
to exhibit some animals developed tin
dor the influence of his ideas of light
and color. He will exhibit u H-yenr-ohl
colt, lif toon and three-quarters hands
high, beautifully developed in form,
which is said to equal in all respects
the best 5-yeur-old horse. Its dam is a j
half-sister of Parole, both coming from
Leamington, Col. Arislides WeWi's
horse, whoso stallion, Alarm, was this
colt's sire. It, was born and reared un
der blue glass, in u hot and dry atnios
phere, intended to be as like" that of
Arabia as possible. Some young cows
will bo shown that arc-3 years old nnd
have already hud three calves; also
some pigs that under blue glass have,
hnd three litters in ten months. Gen.
l'leasonton is himself a line illustration
of his theory. Though now over 7G
years old; ho is active und spry, his r-yo ,
Is keen and bright, and he is altogether
more like a man of M.-lWwkhliia

During a chat with the foieman of
thu street-car stables, James E. Harry,
tho subject turned to a discussion of the
characteristics of hoists and mules.
He had been 11 close student of both,
and the result of his experience is that
the mule is entitled to the higher rank
in sagacity. n
Mr. Harry went on to say that the
superiority of Hm mule is shown in his
absolute refuel to put his foot in a
hole in a bridge or crossing. Horses
seein to endeavor to liml a hole, if there
is any lying uroiind. and break their
legs. This n iniiU) will not do, nor can
he be forced lo advance if he thinks
there is danger. "The horse," said
Mr. Harry, "lias more courage, the
mule nioro sense,"
It has been an amusing study nt one
of the stables to watch u sly, inisehiev
oils little mule that is rather too fond
of liberty. It seems that the mules are
fastened to their stall bv a chain, on
the end of which Is crop!eeoof iron,
which is slipped length wie IhroiHi u

crosswise over the bole prevents the

In tho yard of ono of Hm; down-town

mules are generally tied after being
