Accidentally Hardened Copper—A Great Mud Flow—Certainty of Antl-Typhold— Electrolytic Iron—Bottled Acetylene— A Hot-Box Signal—An Improved Fixer of Nitrogen—A Meteor’s Burning—A Novel Primary Battery. (Correspondence of The Union News.) The hardening and strengthening influence of a minute proportion of some element in an alloy, which is a marvel and mystery of metal lurgy, is not confined to the various steels. Arsenic is a hardly appreciable impurity of fur nace copper, but it now appears that the electro lytic copper coming so generally into use is too pure for certain purposes. On the Prussian railways it has been noticed in recent years that the number of fractured locomotive staybolts was strangely increasing. Investigation shows that this has followed the increasing use of electrolytic copper and that of 23 broken stay bolts collected 21 were of this metal and only 2 of furnace copper. Of the electrolytic samples only one contained arsenic which was present in all furnace copper bolts tested. The high quality of copper containing traces of arsenic had been already recognized, and railways in Italy and the British Colonies specify 0.15 to 0.55 per cent, of arsenic as necessary in all copper bought. V The outburst of mud of January 17 from near Mount Banajao. in the Philippine province of Tayabas, is reported by C. G. Wrentmore of Manila to have flowed ten miles to the sea, spreading 9,000,000 tons of material in a layer a foot deep over an average width of half a mile. Great numbers of rocks three to four feet in diameter were deposed with some much larger. A landslide had choked up a gorge on the slope of the mountain, and heavy rains had gradually formed a pond behind the dam of rocks and loose earth until finally the obstruction gave way. V Of 5,473 British soldiers inoculated with anti typhoid vaccine. Col. W. B. Leishman reports that only 21 afterward had the diseaso with two deaths, while of 6,610 non-inoculated in the same regiment 187 had typhoid and 26 died. Of the 21 inoculated cases 13, including the two deaths, received old vaccine, much inferior to the im proved now used. V New possibilities in metallurgy seem to be opened up by the Cowper-Coles process of mak ing iron plates and tubes direct from the ore by electrolysis. Ordinary cast iron or iron ore, or material unfitted by certain ingredients for ordinary making of high-grade iron or steel is put into an acid bath and connected to the posi tive polo of a dynamo. For tubes the negative electrode is a wooden core covered with a sheet of lead, a similar flat surface being provided for plates. When the tube deposited by electrolysis has reached the desired thickness it is taken from the bath and is then heated to melt the lead and remove the core. The tubes and plates cost much less than those obtained by melting and rolling. The iron produced is superior in quality and it is believed to be possible not only to utilize iron waste and inferior ore but to ap ply the process direct to ore in its bed, thus making unnecessary the mining and cleaning of ore. V It was discovered some time ago that the great danger of the explosion of compressed acetylene could be avoided by dissolving the acetylene in acetone. Compressed acetylene is now prepared by Claude and Hess by using steel cylinders filled with a porous mixture of infusorial earth, special wood charcoal and a suitable bindbr, and forcing into these cylinders the acetone and then the acetylene. At ordinary temperature and pressure the acetone dissolves 24 volumes of acetylene, which is increased about 12 times at 12 atmospheres. The cylinders have capacities of about one- eighth, one- half and one cubic foot, and contain respectively 12,50 and 100 cubic feet of acetylene, which is stored in convenient form for lighting cars, buoys, etc., and for welding metals. V A novel alarm for hot bearings consists of a small tube and bulb containing mercury, so ar ranged that rise of the mercury with tempera ture closes an electric bell circuit and attracts the attention of the attendant. The apparatus is attached to the bearing in a box two inches square. When many bearings are being watched an ordinary electric bell indicator can be used to show which is becoming hot, and thus much trouble may be avoided. The device is recom mended for steamships and all works having valuable machinery. V For obtaining nitrogen compounds from the air, the new process of Dr. Schonherr is claimed to be an important advance over that now used —the Birkeland and Eyde—which yields bioxide ot nitrogen from air passed over an alternating current arc having its surface Increased by de flection by an electromagnet. The new method employs an electric arc generated within an iron tube. An insulated mass of iron in the tube at one end serves as one electrode, and the tube itself forms the other, the passage of the cur rent between giving the arc. As air is blown in, the arc is pushed along the tube, stretching out to great lengths. By this simple method requiring neither moving parts nor electro magnet—the air is transformed into bioxide of nitrogen, which is cooled too rapidly to de compose. With 100 horse-power, the arc extends several yards along the tube, 30,000 cubic feet of air per hour can be blown through, yielding 50 per cent, more of nitrous product than before. It is expected that 140,000 horse-power from a new turbine plant in Norway will be consumed in working this process. V One of the most remarkable meteors ever re corded is being still given attention by W. F. Denning,the veteran British observer. It passed westward over the south of England on the evening of February 22, brighter than Venus, and various reports indicate that it had a visible flight of about 135 miles at 20 miles a second, with a descent from about 60 to 26 miles. Mid way in the course an explosion seemed to occur. This left a short, luminous streak, which grad ually extended backward over the whole track, becoming bent and distorted, and showing more than two hours. At the end of its path the meteor turned sharply to the east with two violent explosions, following which the lumin ous trail lengthened 80 miles eastward in 15 minutes. The fireball is regarded as the greatest meteoric spectacle in a generation. V The unique new galvanic cell, generating an alternatingcurrent, has electrodes of thin sheets of iron, and for electrolyte uses equal volumes of a two per cent, sulphuric acid solution and a saturated bichromate of potash solution. The action continued'for hours. The current moves a galvanometer needle back and forth in a period of sto 10 seconds, with indications rang ing from plus 0.4 to minus 0.4 volt for the cell.
