MAKING LIQUID AIll.
A SCIENTIST EXPLAINS HIS CHEM
Professor Dewar's experiments May I'rovl
to Be the Greatest Investigations of tli
Century Powerful Uases Reduced to i
The Pall Mall Budget of London pub
lished an interview with Professor James
Dewar on what is represented as being
"a great scientific discovery." -that ol
making liquid air. Introductory to the
interview the article says that "his liq
uefactions of permanent gases and the
use of vama to preserve great cold inarli
one of the most important chemical dis
coveries of tho century." It is held bj
scientists that any gas may be liquefied
if the pressure and cold may be obtained
and a vessel of sufficient strength tc
withstand the great pressiuvs.
Of the gases that may be liquefied car
bonic acid gas has been found to bo the
cheapest and readiest made, and while it
has been known for many years that it
could be liquified it has generally been
bo prepared only in small quantities foi
scientific uses. The nse of compressed
air as a motive power has presented many
difficulties, the principal one being its
bulkiness: hence largo vessels must be

nomical and ready way of liquefying it.
it will tend to solvo a problem in carry
ing a motive power in storage bulk that
will be of great benefit to tho students in
this line. In the talk with the represent
ative of The Pall Mall Budget, he says:
"Well, I don't think there's very much
to say, becauso I've told all I have to tell
about the matter in my two lectures,
but I do believe there's a great deal more
to be learned ttbout the subject. You
see. at present we've got these gases down
to 10 degrees below zero, and the lowest
possible temperature is 74 degrees be
low. If wo could get some 30 degrees
lower down, we might liquefy hydrogen.
Hydrogen has never been liquefied in a
free state yet.
"Now, it's a strango thing that air can
be made into a homogeneous fluid. You
would think, as oxygen can be liquefied
at 1S2 degrees and nitrogen not until
192 degrees, that as you made the air
colder and colder the oxygen would be
come liquid first and then tho nitrogen.
I saw tht prediction made in a stand
ard work only tho other day. Now, 1
dare say, you will ask why the oxygen
don't come down first."
Stepping quickly back to the desk Pro
fessor Dewar took up a pencil and began
to draw with rapid strokes on the back
of a letter. The diagram when it was
finished looked more like the law of di
minishing returns turned up on one sido
than anything else that I am acquainted
with. While he drew he rapidly ex
plained how the influence of atmospheric
pressure on the different volumes of ni
trogen and oxygen in air makes them
boil almost exactly at the same tempera
ture. As ho made each point ho frowned
a little, drawing up the wrinkles between
his eyes. "Now, that, in tho old theo
logical days, would have been taken as
a providential dispensation. The strango
thing is that when liquid air evaporates
again they are under the same pressure,
and tho nitrogen goes off first, as you
"Ozone can be liquefied by acting on
the vapor given off from liquid oxygen
by electricity. It is a splendid dark blue
color, almost as dark as indigo. Ozono
has not the same molecule as oxygen,
and the electricity breaks up three twos
into two threes. That is the secret of it.
The queer thing about liquid ozone is
that when it goes back into gas again it
explodes. You wouldn't think it, but it
is stronger than dynamite as an explo
sive. It's simply because the ozono goe3
back into the molecular form of oxygen
so fast. Tho force that comes from tho
electricity makes it explode without
meeting with any outside body. It's a
"We have discovered that liquid oxy
gen acts as a lens. It is so transparent
to heat, so to speak, that even at 1S2
degrees below zero you can focus heat
on it from ono side and light a pieco of
paper by it on the other. You know
that's just what happens in the earth.
The sun's heat gets focussed on to the
earth through the lens formed by tho
vacuum of space, which is so cold that it
hasn't any temperature at all absolute
Professor Dewar gave a lecture on
"Liquid Air" at the Royal institution in
the presence of the Prince of Wales, tho
Duka of York, Lord Salisbury and other
notable persons. lie showed that by tho
withdrawal of heat the air is converted
into a liquid with total loss of chemical
properties, incapable of supporting com
bustion, or of entering into combination
even with phosphorus and sodium, while
certain physical properties remain. Tho
conversion of oxygen into ozono was also
described, and tho retention by oxygen
of its peculiar optical properties at the
lowest temperature was demonstrated
by the very dense and well defined bands
of its spectrum. In ordinary conditions
oxygen bUows no unreasonable thermal
absorption, but at low temperature its
thermal absorptive power becomes mani

Hall road Fares and the World's Fair.
I The World'8 fair in Chicaero is not a
private venture for private gain, but a
great public undertaking for the public
good. The states and the national gov
ernment have contributed directly to
this undertaking, and the railways must
do their share toward its complete suc
cess, both directly and indirectly. Tho
purpose of the fair is in the main educa
tional. That porpose will bo defeated
unless a very great number of visitors
are able to visit Chicago, and by study
ing the exhibits learn the lessons that
they teach. The great majority of t'd?so
visitors most go to Chicago by rail, and
if tho railways, by ungenerously high
fares, discourage the visitors who must
count each dollar of expense, then the
railways will have failed in their duty
toward the public. The very jieople
who will be most benefited by visiting
the fair are those who must carefully
consider tho cost.
A matter of $10 or $15 in railway fares
is nothing to rich men. but it is a great
deal to the artisans and mechanics and
farmers of the country. Besides being
wrong in itself, such a policy would bo
shortsighted, even from a purely selfish
standpoint. In tho development of the
country and its growth in wealth the
railways profit directly and quickly.
The centennial exhibition gave a great
impetus to trade and resulted in the
growth of many industries. This Colum
bian fair will do the same thing, and in
its complete success the railways have
an interest that the managers cannot af
ford to ignore. IIarier's Weekly.
