To protect themselves from the heat they erect Arches under which numer Ous armies of them pass in safety. Some limes the Arch is made of grass and Earth gummed by some score lion.

When the Moon and the Sun Aro on the same Side of the Earth As w the Case at new Moon they unite the Force of their attractions in heaping up. The Waters of the sea. The same thing happens when they Are on opposite sides of the Earth As at full Moon for then each by attracting in an opposite direction assists the other in pulling Mil Tho Ocean so to spunk As oho might pull out the sides of a rubber Ball. According to the theory in question the same forces of the Sun Ami Moon which raise the tides put a Strain upon the urns of Earth which by causing Ihn strata of the works to slip arid slide a Little. Produces earthquakes. When the Moon is at its Quarle sits pull is at right jingles to unit of the Sun and then us is Well known the tides Are lowest. Then too.

The weight of testimony thus far in regard to the various methods proposed for rendering Wood i combustible or unalterable by heat appears to be against the claim that n building encumbered with inflammable substances can pass through such u. Test uninjured. It is known that the methods resorted to for preserving Wood against fire Are principally two Viz. The injections of Saline solutions and the application of a paint or coating. The former has been found practically ineffective and Lias even been pronounced by some is of dangerous tendency in the Case of Wood of Large dimensions though the treatment May be applicable to pieces of Wood of email size. It is remarked that of All the various substances which have been brought for Ward for this purpose the concentrated solution of phosphate of ammonia has proved the most valuable Tho Nso of this substance in fact notwithstanding its High Cost such Peculiar advantages is to have recommended its employment in All cases where Tho mat Ter of expense is not important.
