The invention and appliance of the spectroscope extended our knowledge | of this peculiarity of light, th) ugh not informing us of the ultimate cause I lie red, orange, and yellow rays of the solar spectrum were found to contain actinism. It commences feebly in the green, becomes stronger in the bim-, and is most abundant in the violet. It is found to exist also, very abundant in the dirk space outside the visible spectrum — the ray-waves being of such extreme velocity that the eye can not transmit them to the brain without retarding appliances.
It may be stated as a general rule, that when the luminous is most abundant the actinic force is lea.-t. and eke versa within the proper limitations Tile actinism is greater in the early morning, and in the spring of the v\ar
When actinism was first discovered the idea prevailed that lo increase the act leis ut was greatly to quicken the germination of seeds and cuttings, and
to assist in the loimatioii of the coloring matter of leaves, lilue-glass was therefore used, aud is still used, in the hot~housea, for that purpose. Latter uni more oonsaiencioua experiments have, however, proved that it not the increase of actinism blit the decrease of the light rays thai hastens the germination. On*the.other hand it has been conclusively demonstrated that it is the red rays alone whit-’produce thcgreeu coloring matter (thtf%ilorophyti?ie) to which ive owe the health of the world,
