QUICKNESS OF QUICKSILVER.
Brownsville Business Man Has an
Interesting Experience Attempt
ing to Warm Thermometer.
It was yesterday morning that M.
Ranzeau at the Texas Confectionery
had rather an unpleasant experience
with a thermometer. On exmaining
the mercury in the slender glass
tube he noticed that the fluid had
4!>l»earently congealed, thus form
ing a break in the fluid. After try
ing to shake the same together, he
tried heating to n^ake the liquid
run, but when the match was ap
plied the glass bursted, throwing
flaming bits of mercury over his
head and hands.
Mr. Ranzeau says that he is now
well aware of the fact that the
mercury in the glass tube of a ther
mometer is quicksilver and that it
will burn. And says that he does
not care to experiment with a ther
mometer in a like manner again.
Freight Receipts.
The freight receipts yesterday
were:
Five cars of merchandise, one of
coal, one of gravel, one of structur
al material, one of salt and one of
