The discovery of hydrogen by Cavendish, in 17GO, led Joseph Black, professor of chcmislryiij the-University of Edinburgh, to suggest in one of his lee- ttu-cs that a weight might be lifted from the ground by attaching to it a sphere of some suitable material filled with this very light gas. This idea, casually . : uttered, but not followed up, was remembered some years later by Tiberius Cavallo, an Italian merchant, who, in 1S72, tested its truth by experiment, His attempts to fill paper bags ivith hydrogen failed, owing to the rapidity with which the subtle gas escaped through the pores of the paper. Then he collected the gas in. soapy water, and a bubble of gns ascended; so that a soap bubble filled with hydrogen was the 2rst balloon. This'experiment seems to liave'been repeated by Cavallo before the lioynl society, nnd is described in their "Transactions," but it was pursued no further, the practical energy rot being forthcoming at this stage, when it -u-as nothing more than a scientific curiosity and an interesting experiment, apparently too trifling to be. worfil more (li.ln thought. — Gentleman's Magazine. .-."10 JUlcycIo In the Future.

September, C2 l-lGfi'M 7-lCc; December, Petroleum oil, which was discovered fn this country in ISM, has been known and used for illuminating purposes for more than 2,000 years. ]n one of the Ionian islands to-day there is sin oil spring in action which was mentioned by Herodotus more than 20 centuries ago; There are old oil wells in the north of Italy and the same fluid is used in Persia. J'or many years in the United States petroleum has been known and usedfor medicinal purposes. There are creeks n the c-nst which in the early part of .he_ century were always covered with he oil which came from springs on the muks. This was skimmed ofT and sold by the Indians for medicine at 75 cents •allon. It was not until 1SJ.| that ex- lerimcnts were made toward obtaining ight from the oil. When oil was first drilled for and irought up at the 7-ate of 25 barrels a ay the mariict was glutted, but soon as its value became apparent other veils were started and tlic great jn- ustry sprr.n^iip. In those days numcr- us cooper-shops were necessary and mpoyed hundreds of men, who made le stout barrels to hold the oil, these arrels bringing fortunes to the coop- s: j j ers; teamsters who hauled the barrels ' made $15 to $30 a day; drillers made eight io Ion dollars; fanners who had existed 0:1 sterile farms suddenly discovered oil and were rich; employment was given to hundreds and money in the oil region flowed as freely as the oil itself. The si reel s in the towns which sprang up in these regions became masses of thick mud from the constant tcamagc nnd an empty wagon was a load for two horses, while a loaded one was sunk to the body of the wagon in the sticky soil. J.l was not an unusual sight to see horses drowned in mr.d in the middle of the street. The first ronn whobuilta pipe line for the easier transportation of the oil built one Z\' a miles long. It was clumsy in construction, and after months of toil nr.d the expending of. his fortune nnd that of some of his friends the pipe line wns announced ready for the test- One thousand barrels of petroleum were started and only EO reached the other end of the pipe, the rest escaping through defective valves. The next man who built a pipe line made a success of it, but as soon ns it was in working order the well from which it ran gave out. The enormous output of oil—30,000,000 barrels—in 1S04 mode important the question of storing the superfluous oil. Wooden tanks were first used, but they let the oil evaporate, and to-day we see the 30,000 and even 35,000 barrel iron tanks which in some places are in groups of 300, with a combined capacity of 0,000,000 barrels. The only loss is when a tank is struck by lightning and the oil is burned up. In case of fire in one of these immense tar.ks the great danger is that it will explode .and scatter the burningoil into the other tanks and destroy them. So, to prevent this, a cannon is brought nnd numerous balls Cred into the burning tank around the bnse, this allowing the oil to escape and burn quietly with- Oiitan explosion. Petroleum oil isof many different colors. The. Pennsylvania, oil is dark green, the Canadian black, that from the shores of the Caspian sea. varies from the clear white to yellowish green, brown nnd black; 1 California oils are light green when brought to the surface. In the process of refining petroleum many valuable articles of commerce lire produced. There is gasoline, vaseline, naphtha, paraffin and rhigo- line, the lightest of known fluids, its evaporation bei::g So rapid that.the atmosphere falls to 10 degrees in 20 seconds. • It-is nsod by physicians! to produce local anacsthcsis.—Chicago News. is the title of a story written for the manufacturers-of NONE SUCH by one of the most humorous writers of the day.
