An excellent way to mnko copper
oxide for use in batteries Is as follows:
Tako a quantity of copper filings or
Quo copper shavings and heat them In
a cast iron container or in n cruclblo
till they are red hot. Stir them with
an iron rod, and wliilo still stirring
sprinkle a llttlo water over the filings
until they become oclier red. You will
then have a good quality of copper
Copper oxide plates may be made as
follows: Mix tho granulated or conrso
copper oxide with 5 per cent or 10 per
cent of magnesium chloride and heat
the heavy mass in forms mnde of iron
sheeting, tho forms being of tho size
of tho wanted plate. The moro
chloride of magnesium used the moro
porous tho plntes will be. The coarser
the copper oxide tho better will be tho

The Dog Rose.
The "dog rose" has provoked as much
ingenious explanation of its name as
the "horse chestnut." Ono solution is
that the "dog" Is really "dngga," a
dagger, in allusion to tho prickles, a
drawback from which tho Alexandra
Day rose Is free. Unfortunately for
this explanation, tho flower bears a
similar name in countries where it will
not apply. Tho Germans, for Instance,
have-"nundsroso," and Pliny tells how
a Roman mother was moved in a dream
to send some roots of tho wild rose to
her soldier son In Spain. They arrived
just after he hail been bitten by a mad
dog. Ho took,them and was preserved
from hydrophobia, as wero others who
adopted tho same treatment. And from
that tlmo tho wild roso became tho
"dog rose." London Chronicle.
