An Application That Kxptaini Some o
the Illusions of the Mirror.
The mirrors in common use are as a rule
provided with a reflecting surface consist

A thin film of metallic platinum is de
posited upon the j;lass by precipitation
from a solution fif the chloride, by oil of
lavender and afterward burned in by heat

thus incorporating the reflecting surface
into the trlass itself.
A peculiarity of this coat ins of platinum
is its extreme thinness, which readily al
lows hirht to lie transmitted through it.
Thus if the light falls upon the mirror
from the front it will be reflected back
again the same as in an ordinary mirror,
but if the source of the lisht is behind the
plate of platinized glass the rays will be
transmitted to the observer standing be
fore it, as if it was a plate of ordinary
glass. The illustrations from La Nature
show an amusimr application of this prin
ciple. The mirror, explaiuA The Popular

is extinguished, and the person looking
into it sees only his reflection. If now the
niche in the rear of the glass is illumined
the reflected image disappears and the vic

own features the less flattering image de
picted in Fig. 2.
Lnder favorable conditions ordinary

The Longest Day.
It is quite important, wheu speaking of
the longest day in the year, to say what
part of . the world you are talking about.
The latitude of a place changes the length
of the day to a remarkable extent. At
Stockholm. Sweden, it is eighteen and one
half hours in length. At S-pitztiergen the
longest day is three and one-halfl mouths.
t Lot'dou, England, and Bremen, Prus
sia, the lougest dav has sixteen and one-
half hours. At Hamburg, in Germany, and
Dantzig, in Prussia, the longest day has
seveuteen hours. At Wardoe, Norway, the
longest clay lasts rom May 21 to June 22
without interruption. At St. Petersburg,
Russia, and Tobolsk, Si!xria, the longest
day is nineteen hours and the shortest five
hours. At Toruea, Finland, June 21 brings
a day nearly twenty-two hours long, and
Chrisrmas one less titan three hours in
length. At New York the longest day
is about lifteen hours, and at Montreal,
Canada, it is about sixteen hours.
How Fiith Hook Are Marie.
The Industrial World tells how fish hooks

at 1.453,023,000 inhabitants. Steam has ac
cordingly enabled man to treble his work

economize his physical strength while at

1 A Botanical Curiosity.
At a meeting of the Iioyal Botanic socie
ty the secretary brought to the notice of
members a portion of a large poplar lately
blown down in the gardens, showing a net
work of roots running almost round the
trunk, between the bark and wood, at some
distance from the ground. The plant bad
apparently derived its nourishment, not
from the soil, but from the decaying por
tions of itself.
