Accordingto Scientific American, it is made by the ac-tion of sulphur vapor on red hot charcoal,and is used in the manufacture of water-proof materials,theextr»ct1on of oils from had fallen, the arms were cut back to oneand one-half feet. The third year two of the most conveni-ent buds were selected for fruiting spursand one at the end for extension of arm.The two fruit spurs were allowed to bearone bunch each and were trained upwardon wire or string.

Thespecific gravity of the vapor is rather morethan 2}{ times that of atmospheric air, andthe vapor not only readily collects near thebottom of any space in which it is produced,but flows along almost like a fluid, and thevapor may thus reach a fire and be inflamedat some distance from source of production. One of the most striking characteristicsof this vapor is the extremely low temper-ature, at which, when mixed with air, ittakes fii-e. According to experiments, thistemperature is about 415 deg. F.
