SCIENCE FOR THE PEOPLE.
-aa
M. MOTET* RAFID VESSEL.
IL l.aotil Pictet, tlie well-known chemist,
recently devised a steamboat from which great
things w?n* expected in the way of sneed,
the main idea being that the vessel would rise
out of the waler in proportion to its speed, and
that tlie ordinary increase of faction nt high
speeds would thus be avoided. This ve.--.sel has
just been Hied on Lake Geneva. With a
length ol about sixty-seven feet and a width of
thirteen feet, tlie new vessel is peculiar chiefly
in having a bottom that is of parabolic form
lengthwise, the concavity downward ; trana
Tersely the bottom is nearly straight; the sides
are vertical. A keel reaching from about the mid?
dle ol' the length incloses a screw shaft. Among
other results IL 1'ictet show.-, that the force of
traction of this reese] is always leas than that
of an ordinary vessel of the same general form
and going at the same rate, 'lin* advantages
of tue parabolic curve only become appa?
rent at a certain sppe d, depending on the
width, length, and tonnage, and tue parama?
tta <M the parabolicCUrre. 'Hie lone ol trac
tiou passes through a maximum, at a certain
Teloeity lor each vessel ; beyond that point,
the work of the motor, and so tin expendi?
ture of fuel, diminishes, though the speed in?
creases. Experiment has yet tO decide the
limits of this second period.
The emergence ol the vessel* very small for
small velocity, grows very quickly when a
speed ol' Ive menes (say 17 feet) pet second
has been leached ; anti it converges rapidly
toward an upper limit. The recoil of the
screw for different velocities increases to a
maximum, then constantly diminishes nnd
lends to become nil for an indefinite velocity.
Tbe engine used proved faulty, anti in several
nf the experiments the vessel was towed hy a
steamer, at velocities rising to 21 kilometres
(say 17 miles); when this last is readied, an
economy ol one-half is realized (growing from
16 kilometres). _
TWO COLD POLES.
It is now recognized that there aro iu the
Northern hemisphere two poles ot cold, or two
placet, when* the lowest temperature i.-. reached?
one in the northeast ol siberia, tue other in the
Arctic Archipelago of America. 1 hen geograph
leal position has not been exactly defined, bul
it can be atlirmed?according to Hie Aatur?
that the pole of Asiatic coid is to the noun ot
Yakutsk, and that ol American cold to the
northwest ot Parry Island. Near the Siberian
(Kde, which is ml..nd, and at a comparatively
ow latitude, between 00? and 70J, tlie climate
ol' the continent is characterised by a severe
winter and a hot bummer; at the American
pole, in a maritime region, between b> and
8b? lat., the .lintel is mihi er and Hie summer
cooler.
lill recently, Yakutsk was thought to bc the
coldest place on tin* earth, its mean tempera
turo in January being?45 ; but then- have
beni lound near Werkojanuk, in Silten, al a
latitude of 67 . pl ces with s mean January
Bssanenturc of?SS . The pole ol enid is local
i/.i d ut thiantace during lour month-, ot <ht
year, viz. november to March ; but during
April aud May the pole is displaced tow.ml
the northwest, returningafterwarus in the di?
rection ol Weikoj.iiisk, which is thc only place
always Inclosed in tha isotherm of?40? urning
tho mouths ot November. December) January,
and Fe br nun ol' eat li year. The mean annual
temperature of the pole of Siberian cold is es?
timated to be 2?. M. Klu'sthak. a member ol

BOILING EGGS.
Having explained the scientific principles in?
volved, Mr. Maitieu Williams gives in Kuoul- J
edge these iiiiections foi boiiingeggs: lake a |
aaacepaa holding a pint of water and raise tbe
latter lo the boiling point. Then pul an egg in
tbe boiling water, place the saucepan on the
hearth mihi leave it there wita the SKI ia it len
mimili a oi more. An egg ao cooked, lie m; s,
Will ba tender and delicate, evenly bo thrungli
out, no part being ha.il while another part is
aenii-iiiw and slimy.
The same principle may lie aiq lied to a lei; of
mutton. Fust, in older to seal the pons, the
meat should be pat into boiling water; the
irater should be kept boiling lor live or ten
minutes. A coating of firmly coagulated si
bomen will thus envelop the joint. Now, in?
stead of boilim: er ?' simmering'' Ihe water, set
the saucepan aside, where the waler .wll retain
a teinperntuie ol about lbO?, ur :?_ ' below thc
boiling-point. Continue lins about half as
long again, or double the usual time given in
the rooken--books for boiling a leg of motton,
and try the etlect. The usual addition ol salt
to the wafer is desirable. It has a threefold
action : fiist.it directly acts on the superficial
albumen with coagulating etlect ; second, it
Slightly raii-es th? boiling point ol thc water ;
and third, by increasing the density ot the
water, the ** eior-niosit* ' Of oozing out of the
tuices is less active. These actions an* slight,
mt all co-operate in keening in the juices. A
leg of manon tm houim: should he fresh, and
Uot M hung "as for roust ing.
PRESERVATION OF STEEL
Experiments aie at present being carried on
In belgium, says Iron, to preserve s.eel, and
steel gnu barrels iii particular, by cot-ting ihem
thinly witta copper by a proceseof whieb M. F.
Weil is the in \eutor. [tani cu inn ity consists in
the composition of the baths um tl, In which the
usual aud al Mais dangerous alkaline eyanores
aie replaced br uruanie acid* and glycerine.
According to M.Weil, these baths require no re?
newal Ol oigamc elements, and can bu used
Con!inuously, when they are saturated with
peroxide of copper. They possesaalso the ad?
vantage?ouing to the property inherent in or?
ganic alkaloids, of dissolving the peroxide of
iron, without attacking the metallic iron itself
?of cleansing the steel belora the commence?
ment of the coppering process, and more per?
fectly than can be Hone mechanically. Tho
Goonaring is effected by putting poiotis clay
vessels, tilled arith caustic soda lye in which
einc plates have been immersed, in the basin
containing the organic copper base (alkaloid)
and the sled. '1 lie zinc plates are connected
with the steel ardelis to be coated ."-nh copper
by a thick copper wire. Tba ainslie lye may
be aseSl over and over again. Should it become
saturated with oxide of zinc, it is snfflcienl for
ita regeneration to treat it with sulphide of
?.odium, wlien the oxide (of zinc) will be pit-tip
itated, nnd a valuable by-pioduct obtained, by
which the cost of tin* inness will beeonsider
hlv rei
lill, ocr
ui>ies but a very short time.
A NEW ALLOY.
Id tho new alloy of copper, iron and zinc
coiuddciablu difficulty has been experienced in
securing a uniform admixture of the iran. A
London experimenter is said to have overcome
this hy his method oi Introducing tlie iron Into
the mix! un* of zinc nnd copper. When ordi?
nary wrought iron is introduced iuto molten zinc
the latter readily dissolves OT absorbs tho
former. The exact point ut saturation or the
proportion dissolved or absorbed reties with
tlie temperature at which thu molten zinc is
maintained during the precess, and it is by
carefully ascertaining and couti oiling thii tem?
perature that a perfectly Uniterm product has
been obtained. The metal thus produced, and
to which the name of Delta metal I as been
given, is stated to be as much superior to brass
as phosphor bronze is to gun mt ta), or as steel
is to iron. It posses-**.-, great strength and
toughness, and samples cast io sand give a
breaking strum of twenty-two tons lier square
inch. _
PHOTOGRAPHING .SOUND.
The direct photography of sound vibrations
lias ree-ntlv -*_**n effected bv Professor Boltz
mann, as follows: A small, thin platinum
plate wran attached perpendicularly to the
eadie of a thin iron plate, which, as in tbe
telephone or nbonograpb, wns fixed on a wall
puce and vibrated to sound. With a solar
microscoiie au image of the platinum plate was
?eOMBsed on a screen. Then a prepaied photo?
graphic plate was quickly moved across, iu the
Diane of the screen, by a stiong spring, while
the mouthpiece was spoken to. A bounding
line between light anti shadow was so obtained
ton the prepared plate, formiug a curve which
Mosalv corresponded to the sonorous vibrations,
lo the vowels pretty wmple curves corre
?pond, often approximate!y curves of sines.
often interference curves of two or three curves
of sines. The consonants give very multifa?
rious curves.
IMPROVED ELECTRIC ACCOMULAT. IRS.
i A gieat improvement has beeu effected in ac?
cumulators, says The English Mechanic, by a
combination ot the Fnure-^cllon-Volckiniir pat?
ents. The Pullman train on the Brighton line,
which formerly was lit hy eighteen incandes?
cent lamps, supplied by seventy Faure accumu?
lators, is now illuminated wit ii forty incandes?
cent lamps, the eui rent for which is supplied hy
.50 Faure - Bellen ?Vdckmar accumulators,
whom* total weight i6 less than halt those for?
merly employed. According to Professor Ayrtim,
the old accumulators weighed ISO pounds in
working ot dei, and nave a curr* nt equivalent to
one horse-power for thiee-ijuarters of an hour ;
whereas the new pattern weighs only about
seventy-five pounds, and gives a horsc-poWCT
for au hour.
SOLAR PROTUBERANCES.
Spectroscopies who liave studied the solnr
protuberances uilirni that the matter of thees
rises with the tremendous velocities of ***", 100
or 120 leagues per second. M. Faye, however,
who has been lately expounding hi*** theory of
solar phenomena in the Paris Academy, ex?
plains the appearances in the following way:
The gas forming the protuberances expands
in space, is enormous!f cooled and ceases to i.e
visible; hilt presently the solai radiation, which
smoontsto 1,300 tc 1,500 calorics per square
meter ami per second, heals it again and
renders it perceptible. The risibility commences
at the lower side of the cloud liv hydrogen, ai d
advances upward to the top. M. Faye holds
thal it li this phenomenoa that is propagated
with the high velocity juM referred to, a'jd not
the gas itself.
A NOT 11 LI J FLESH PRESERVER,
The action of very diluted nitromuriatic
acid (agaa rtgta) on meat and other animal
substances has beni recently studied by Signor
Paves!, who linds the substance an excellent
preserving agent; meal in pieces of aboul
one keg, kept in the liquid in wooden vessel*.
remaining unaltered and savory lor years. The
meat treated may also be dried at 15 ' to L'ii
without undergoing change, apart from s di?
minution of volume and the appearance of a
brown color. Pol for I few hours in water,
the meat recovers its original softness and nat?
ural color. _

RELIGIOUS INTELLIGENCE.

sion to do those things it ought not to do and leavo

locresse in privntn fortunes within the iifetuue ol s

proprlaleness. I.'iehes implies leisure and wars of

The social results ot ml ibis are to bo deplored;
but they must ls* iracrtl to ihe cause we havo luiii

many w.'iuen manif st. le tin* great regret of tho

never cease to want to lie nerhusilajd'scoiupanion ;
but if she is to succeed ste must know-far more
than siittii-ed her sex a generation ugo. The men of

If, instead of Judging ail society by that ol tlie
