HEATING POWER OF WOT C, Contrary to a widespread belief that hardwoods give more heat in burning than soft varieties, (he scientists at Washington are con tending that the greatest heat ing power is possessed by the wood of the linden tree, which is very soft. Fir stands next to linden, and almost equal (o it. Then conies pine, hardly inferior to fir and linden; while hard oak pos sesses eight per cent, less heating ca pacity than linden, and red beech ten per cent. less. ALL. HE KNEW ABOUT IT.
