The intimate relation between fire
and air was early recognized, seeing
that experience soon taught that air was
necessary for fire. The experiment of
burning a candle in a closed vessel, now
so familiar to every schoolboy, is a very
old one, and tne inncence of a blast of
air on a furnace bad been probably no
ticed from very remote period. Br
some it was affirmed to be the food of
fire, while by others the same belief was
embodied in the phrase, "Air nourishes
Again, it was long ago observed that
niter, a substance well known to the
chemical philosophers of the past, could
produce intense ignition. It was hence
inferred that, since niter possessed this
property, it necessarily followed that
the two substances resembled each other
in composition. According to Robert
Boyle, the air contained "volatile ni
ter," while Lord .Bacon held that air
contained a "volatile, crude and windy
spirit," and thunder and lightning were
supposed to be due to the presence of
minute particles 01 this niter diffused
The important bearing of such obser
vations is due to tne xact that oxygen
gas, which is one 01 the chief constitu
ents of air and the one to which it owes
its power of supporting combustion,
also forms the largest elementary con
stitnent of niter and is likewise tne
source of the power possessed by that
body 01 supporting combustion.
The action of heat on metals in caus
ing them to lose their metallic lnster
bad also not escaped notice, and Cardan,
a philosopher who lived during the six
teenth century, in noticing the increase
in weight that lead undergoes when
heated in air, attributed it to the gas in
the air, which foeds flame and which
rekindles a body presenting an ignited
