XETALS MOIE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD.
The Rarest and Costilest of all it Galiumn
at $3,250 an Onnce.
Fully ninety-nine persons in
every hundred, if asked to name
the most precious metals, would
mention gold as first. Platinum
as second, and silver as third. If
asked to name others, a few might
add nickel, and a very few alum
inum to the list. Let us see how
near to the truth they would be.
Gold is worth about $240 per pound,
troy; platinum $130, and silver
about $12. Nickle would be quoted
at about 60 cents. and pure al
umnium S or $9 to the troy pound.
We will now compare these
prices with those of the rarer and
less well-known of the metals. To
take them in. alphabetical order,
barium sells for $975 a pound,
when it is sold at all, and calcium
is worth $1,800 a pound. Cerium
is a shade higher-its cost is $160
an ounce, or $1,920 a pound.
These begin to look like fabul
ous prices, but they do not reach
the highest point: chromium brings
$200, cobalt falls at about half the
price of silver, while didynium is
the same price as cerium, and er
bium $10 cheaper on the ounce
than calcium, or just $1,680 per
If the wealth of the Vanderbilts
be not overstated, it amounts to
nearly $200,000,000. With this sum
they could purchase 312 tons of
gold and have something left over,
but they couldn't buy two tons of
gallium, that rare metal being
worth $3,250 an ounce. With this
metal the highcst price is reached,
and it may well be called the rar
est and most precious of metals.
Glucinum is worth $250 per ounce
indium $158; iridium, $658 a pond;
lanthanium, $175, and lithium $160
per ounce. Niobium costs $128
per ounce; asmium, pallidum, pla
tinum, potassium, and rhodium
brings respectively $640, $400, $130,
$32, and $512 per pound. Stron
tiunm cost $I2S an ounce: taintaum,
$144; teluriunm. $9; thorium, $272,
vanadium, $320; yffrium. $144, and
zirconium $150 an ounce.
Thus we see that the commonly
received opinion as to what are the
most precious metals is quite erro
neous. Barr-ium is more than four
times as valuable as gold, and
ga~ more than 162 times as
coty while many of the metals
are twice and thrice as valuable.
Aluminum, which now costs $S or
$9 a pound, will eventually be pro
duced as cheaply as steel. When
this can be done it will push the
latter metal out of a great many of
its present uses, as it posesses great
-strength, toughness, and elasticity,
Zwith extreme lightness of weight.
Its sources of supply are inexhausti
ble, and its present high cost arises
from the difficulty of its extraction
in a metalic form. Indium seems
to be chiefly used for pointing gold
pens, and many of the metals men
tioned have but a limited,.sphere of

out his entire life has shown a
marked mechanical bent and his
own mind has constantly run on
-- inventions, the object of which was
to do by machinery what had pre
viously been done by hand.
His father owned and operated a
large works at Schenectady, N. Y.,
for the manufacture of agricultural
implements, and he showed his
good sense in giving his boys, as
part of their education, practical
instructions in mechanics.
George, in early days was very
-fond of playing ball, and sometimes
his father, ou returning to the
works, would find the lad absent
for obvious r-easons- Those ab
sences ted to interviews. At last
it was decided that George's work
should be arcanged on the piece
system instead of on the time sys
tem. In other works, his task was
thenceforth to consist of a given
amount of work each day which he
might expedite as inuch as he
pleased, and, after it was done, he
was at libeirty to repair to the ball
grounds. Here was an opportunity
for invention, and the lad did not
fail to utalize it. Without any pre
vious knowledge of the now well
known disc method of cutting
metals, he experimented and soon
discovered that with a circular disc,
of soft sheet iron on the highest
speed of his lathe, he could split a
file. He quickly utalized this
method of completing his daily
task, and r-eparing so early each
day to the grounds that his father
at first feared a~ miscount had oc
curred. On watching George at
work, however,.he soon saw with
his own eyes how the remarkable
feat was accomplished.

Nothing is more common than to
hear: "A. man convinced against
his will, is of the same opinion
still." This is an impossible con

eouvinced of an opinion and at the

What Butler wrote was eminently
sensible: "He that complies against
his will, is of his own opinion still."

often misquoted thus: "He that is

"Let him first cast a stone."

The Sabbath Day. -
Last Sabbath afternoon we came
apon a lovable woman of the Pres
byterian faith with her children at
Ler knees teaching them the Short
r Catechism by moral suasion and
by main strength. Her beaming
eyes sparkled with more than their
uisual animation but it *a.s not on
ccount of the children. Upon in
gjuiry we found she was vexed
because her husband had taken his
uggy and gone off to look ovei his
rop. This was not the proper
example to set the little ones and
made her work more difficult.
Now if any other woman has the
same kind of a stumbling block we
beg to state that we have a law to
meet such a case. The statutes
forbid every-body to do any "work
oif their ordinary callings'' and re
gjuire them th abstain from all
"exercises, sports or pastimes'
apon the Lord's Day. One dollar
is the fine for every such offence.

enough our women should try what

Some Curious Announcements of Matriuo

This collection of marriage an
nouncenieits has been copied from
old newspapers published within
the last hundred years, of which
the compiler has examined between
200 and 300 volumes, selecting such
as he thought worth repeating to
the present generat ion. The old
wits were famous for punning on
the names which they could utilize
forsuch purpose, and imany of those
announcements will provoke laugh
ter in spite of one's self. Many
such marriage notices as the com
piler has found have been rejected
as too fat for insertion, and, on the
other hand, he found some that a
were rather too sharp for our mod
