I Studying Road-Binders.
Washington, Dec. 3.—As a irge part of the road work in his country seems destined to e effected by the use of tars in oad treatment and construction, systematic investigation of the ffect of various constituents pon the adaptability of tars as oad-binders is now being made y the good roads division of the epartment of agriculiure. The epartment has prepared a mon graph on the effect of naphtha ?ne upon the consistency of re ned tars. While definite con elusions are not announced, the B results strongly indicate four de ll terminate facts, as follows: That the fluxing value of naph fg thalene for tar pitches is some 9 what greater, although quite !|f similiar, to the heavier naphtha f- lene free tar distillates, until the jf mixture becomes satuated with M naphthalene. 1; That for the harder tar pitches the addition of very small per f centages of naphthalene will produce a marked increase in w fluidity of the resulting prod Jr uct. That for the softer pitches the addition of naphthalene in small 4 quantities causes less increase in fluidity than|for the harder pitch % es. That where naphthalene is ad p ded beyond the point of satur ation a rapid decrease in the flu idity of tars at temperatures I below the melting point of nao f thalene is observed, but at tem I peratures above— its melting point the fluidity continues to in crease. An Egg Worth $1,500. An egg of the great auk, or gare fowl, a bird now extinct, was sold at auction in London for a sum equivalent to $1,500. Not all great auk’s eggs are alike. In length they vary from four and one eighth inches to f five inches. The greater rum k ber found have a white ground, but others are of various shades ; of buff. In some cases the mark ings are spots, shown in blotch | es or lines. It is said that no living auk has \ been seen since 1844. The birds were exterminated by the ruth less traffic in their eggs and I' skins, although their numbers, on the Newfoundland and Lab rador coasts, where once they were very numerous, were grest ly reduced by their wholesale slaughter for food. Many misconceptions hav* survived as to the great auk. | which for years has been regarS i ed as a sort of fabled bird, lik» the roc or thb dodo, or Lewis P Carroll’s famous “jub-jub.” In I size the creature did not differ I much from the tame goose, and its title of “great” was given it to distinguish it from the smaller, \ or razor billed auk. The most remarkable charac L teristic of the great auk was it> inability to fly. Its winge were sc rcely more than fins, which [ aided the bird in swimming.

All the editor has to do is to sit at a desk six days out of a week, four weeks out of a month and twelve months out of the year and “edit”'such stuff as this: “Mrs. Jones, of Cactus Creek, let a can opener slip last week and cut herself in the pantry.” “A mischievous lad of Piketown threw a stone and struck Mr. J Pike in the alley last Tuesday.”] “John Doe climbed on the roof I of his house last week looking] for a leak and fell striking him- j self on the back porch.” “While Harnold Green was escorting Miss Violet Wise from the church ( social Saturday night a savage dog attacked them and bit Mr. ] G'een several times on the pub lic square ” “Issiah Trimmer of Running Creek was playing with a cat Friday when it scratched him on the veranda.” 4 Mr. Fond while harnessing a broncho last Saturday was kicked just south of his corn patch.” Yes, it’s a wonder they draw salaries for it. —Ex.
