r Interesting Discoveries Concerning
Most Useful Metal, Ths^Havs Recently
Eeen Mae'e.
\ j
Tory fascinating are the unsolved
problems of metallurgy which were
discussed at a recent meeting of an
institution of <->vi! pn<rinoprc.
There is a common carbon stool
which, when heated to ~-~t degrees
centigrade and quenched in brine
bends on becoming cold. 4X <togrees,
and possesses' the hardness number
22S on the Brinnell scale. If heated
only ten degrees higher, to 733 degrees,
and then quenched and cooled, it
bends only l\t> degrees and ito liardr
ness becomes 512. Finally, when the
heat is increased another 5 degrees,
to 749 degrees, the effect is that the
steel will not bend at :ill and its hardness
number rises to 713.
All these results are produced by a
range of temperature less than that

spring#day. There is a steel containins
20 per cent o? nickel which is almost
non-magnetic and has a tenacity
of 40 tons per square inch. If immersed
in liquid air it becomes strong?
ly magnetic and its tenacity ?isesvto
115 tons. Then, after returning to ordinary
temperature, it retains a tenacity
of 115 tons.
Many Members of the Famous Soi- ;
tiler's Fami'y Lost" Their Lives
in the "Massacre." I
In the battle of the Little Big Horn, ;
popularly known as the "Custer ; 1
Massacre," in the government's cam- ;
paign against the Sioux Indians in ;
- the summer of 1S76. and in which. .
besides Uen. ueorge a. t usier, every
man in his command lost his life, several
near relatives of Custer were
among the killed.
4 With Custer in that memorable '
fight was his brother, Capt. Tom
Custer, the only man in the United
States army who held two medals for :
* capturing two flags with, his own ,
hands in the Civil" war. After the .
battle the Sioux chief, Rain-in-theFace,
nlade good a previous threat,
and accomplished a terrible revenge -
for an old grievance against Captain j
Custer-by cutting open the breast of ,
the brave young soldier and eating his j
heart. Calhoun, a brother-in-law of j
i the general, was among the slain, as .
was Boston Custer, another brother ,
of the general, who was civilian for- j
age master of the Seventh cavalry, ;
and Autie Reed, the general's nephew j
?a mere boy, who wanted to see
something of life in the West. an<i
who had welcomed with joy this opportunity
to make the campaign.

Learned Barbarisms. * j
The use of Greek or Latin roots j
from which to form new words, re- ^
quired by the advance of scientific (
knowledge, is almost universal among
learned men. On the whole the practic-e
is useful, but it can be carried to j
absurdity. Dr. Brudenell Carrer, the
English oculist, in one of his books,
i protests against doctors who air their
supposed acquirements by coining hor- r
m rible verbal compounds that are usu- ^
H ally intended to express very simple t

Paradise of Departed Heroes. |
I The way in which the departed ^
Scandinavian heroes passed their time ^
in Valhalia, or in the palace of Odin.! .
. is described in several places* in the 1
Edda. * \l
They have every day the pleasure ' ^
of arming themselves, marshalling1
themselves in military order, engaging
- in battle, and being all cut to pieces; 1
but when the stated hour of repast, "
arrives their bodies are reunited, and ,
they return on horseback safe to the *
hall of banquet, wfcer^ they feed! r,
heartily on the flesh of a boar and
drink beer out of the skulls of their *
k enemies, until they are in a slate of
B intoxication.' Odin sits by himself at
p a particular table. The heroes are
' . served by the beautiful virgins named
Yalkirie, who officiate as their cupl
, bearers. But the pleasures of love 1
do not enrer at ail into the joys of this : v
extraordinary paradise. (
