A molecule of alcohol is composed of two atoms of carbon, six of hydrogen and one of oxygen; so synthetical al cohol is obtained by uniting- these atoms accordingly. For a long time it has been known that by direct com bination of carbon and hydrogen in the electric arc, acetylene can be obtained. Sufficient hydrogen must be added to the acetylene to produce ethylene, a constituent of illuminating gas. In combining water with the ethylene al cohol is obtained. Thus, alcohol is pro duced in France without the employ ment of vegetable matter. MftKiiKlceiit Crentnrc.

DIVORCE IN ROYAL FAMILIES The Hiiiine of Hnne Hai R ilrcori That Wax Abhorred by Queen Victoria. Queen Victoria disapproved ver> strongly of morganatic marriages, al most as much as she did of divorce, and she dealt' very peremptorily witb her son-in-law, the husband of he* favorite daughter, Alice of Hesse, who took unto himself a morganatic wife shortly after the death of the grand duchess. This lady was the Grafin Hutten Sznpska, with whom Duke Louis lived only one week, so vehemently did his mother-in-law , let him heai her mind on the subject, says LondoD Sketch. The Hesse family, .ndeed, are some what addicted to both divorce and morganatic marriages. \ Wilhelm of Hesse was divorced from I'rincess Elizabeth of Schaum burg-Lippe; and his sister, Princess Maria Augusta, divorced her cousin husband. Prince von Hesse-Phillip stal, very shortly after her marriage to him. A generation ago Prince Alexis von Hesse, uncle of Ernst Louis, was divorced by his wife for cruelty, a? he used to 'drag her about in the cor ridors of his palace, Mon-15ijou, in Berlin, by the hair. While out of the recent ancestors of the family, Wilhelm Ernest Fred erick <,f Hesse was actually married four times and divorced twice! WORLD'S PETROLEUM SUPPLY. Scientist Declares That Deposit* of the Globe Are of Voleattlo Origin. E. Coste, the president of the Cana dian Mining institute, recently read an interesting paper before that body,, says the New York Commercial Ad vertiser, setting forth his reasons for believing that the petroleum deposits of the world are of volcanic origin. He points out a number of facts which render the theory at present generally held by geologists ? that it has arisen directly -from the decomposition of or ganic remains, animal and vegetable untenable. He calls attention to the fact that no such process is at present under way; that all organic decomposition of animal matter is so rapid and com plete that there is no opportunity for the entombment of anything but bones in sedimentary rocks; that as the oil deposits of the lower Silurian limestone of Ohio and other fields are below the carbon tferous beds and as it is generally aclir. iKed by geologists that previous to the latter r>ge there was very little vegetable life on the earth, these enormous deposits could not have arisen from organic remains, because there were few organisms at that time, and, finally, that if petrol eum was due to the destrrrtive distil lation of coal, there would now be no coal beds, all having lons> ago been transformed into petroleum and a cokelike residue.
