Then dip the wetted end of the thread into the cup of a burning wax candle, and apply it to the exterior of the flame, not quite touching the luminous part, but so as to be immersed in the cone of invisible but intensely heated air which envelopes it. Immediately, an irregular sputtering combustion of the wax on the thread will take place, and the invisible cone of heat will be rendered luminous, with a peculiarly coloured light, according to the salt...

I attempted, in vain, to form a crystalline hydrate of common resin, (it always separated in transparent globules,) and, as we have no satisfactory evidence that resins ever occur crystallized, this condition of the Liriodendrine may be regarded as alone sufficiently distinctive. It is true that M. Pelletier states his having seen the balsam of copaiba in a crystalline form ; but the article, besides being of a compound nature, was at least thirty years old at the time of observation.

If the minutest quantity of vegetable or animal matter is present, the solution is discoloured; and, with common distilled water, the discolouration is strong. To prove that the cause of the change of colour is the one assigned, it is sufficient to allow the coloured matter to subside, decant the colourless solution, and expose it again to sunshine. However powerful the sun's rays are, no further effect...

This was obtained by Mr. Hensmans, who was led, by numerous experiments, to conclude that the alcohol was always identical, but that the difficulty more or less great, always found in rectifying it, as well, also, as the difference in taste, depended upon the presence of a fatty matter, and a little acetic ether. The fatty method...
