When the terminal wires of a battery are brought together and tie ii slightly -. pirated, there results a bright light between them. To this light, by reason of its curved form, the name “electric an ” has been given. If the circuit is not immediately broken the ends of the w Ires become greatly heated and melt, dropping off iii glowing globules. A* they melt away the distance between them Increases, and a point is reached at which the electro-motive force of the battery Is no longer sufficient to main- ! tain a current across tho intervening space.

It is difficult for u* to conceive of an age In whh-h “taHrrwdtp*" were not employed for household illumination; Indeed, it would mu rn that their use ought to have antedated the lamp. A* a matter of fact candles are a comparatively modem invention, having been first Introduced In the latter part of the thirteenth century. Originally they were marie by the process of "dipping," with wit (cb most middleaged country readers are familiar. Later they were cast In molds. Candles were early made of wax, and latterly of sperm oil and the products of [letndeum. Candles are spoken of In the English translation of the Bible; but the word should have been renders “lamp." Candles were a vast Improvement over their Immediate predecessor, the lamp, aud mark the third era of Illumination. Tile fourth period dates from the Invention of gas. The honor of this lies between Dr. Hales and the Rev. John Clayton, of Wakefield, England. In 1757 the former described a process of evolving illuminating ga* from mal, while the latter accomplished it in I73U. The first practical application of gas was effected In 1792 by William Murdock, who used it for lighting his workshop, at Kodruth. in Cornwall. In ikon It was introduced In Boho foundry, near Birmingham, and In IMIS London Bridge was lighted by the then mysterious fluid. About this time, Htr Walter Scott wrote from London: "There is a madman proposing to light the town with—whatdo you think? —why with smoke." The next year Its ase became general in London, and In 1882 It was Introduced into the United States at Boston. Natural gas, now ex-tenslvely employed In this Country, ha* taws used ta China from remote ages. BANK OF ALDEN, BDX. HADSALL A SOH, Rid—I* Hardin County, Iowa. -*■ PERFUMES EXCHANGE BOUGHT and SOLO.
