oan uncommon kind of blackstone
shale which is composed of animal
and vegetable remains is remarkably
light yet yields a large proportion
of a heavy volatile oil. The
oil is extracted by dis
tillation and the residual product is
reduced to grains of different sizes
varying from a fine powder to the
size of a pea. The powder is claimed
to have an instantaneous effect upon
obnoxious matter while being also
tasteless and colorless and
harmless to all animal life. In the
granulated form the substance acts
powerfully for filtering and sweeten-
ing water. The oil mixed with
other substances is used as a man-

ell resigned from Vassar college she
went to live in Philadelphia. Two of
her old pupils residing in the Quaker

mer professor immediately. On the
way to the hotel where Miss Mitchell
was staying the two ladies debated
with themselves in what form it would
be better to put their inquiry. If they
nsked for Professor Mitchell the clerk
aot having had the superlative advan-
tages of Vassar would probably say
that there was no such gentleman in
the house. On the other hand how
could they so lower the dignity of theL
dearly beloved psofessor by inquiring
If Miss Mitchell were at home?

and alter being argued pro and con it
was finally decided infs.vorof the miss.
The iguorance of the clerk was a fact
and not to be gainsaid. Accordingly
the ladies on reaching the hotel walked

for Miss Mitchell. Much to their con-

no such person in the house.
