Strength of Aluminum.
Aluminum Is a widely distributed
constituent Of the earth, occurring In
a number of forms of combination;
most r'uindant as silicates In the dif
ferent varieties of clny. Tho most
striking property of aluminum Is Its
lightness. Aluminum Is not, section
for section, comparatively r. strong
metal. It Is only about as strong un
der tensile strain, section for section,
as castlron, nnd has less than one-half
the strength of wrought Iron under
ordinary conditions. Under compres
sion the metal has u very low elastic
limit, although Its extreme ductility al
lows the metal to flow on Itself so
freshly as to mako It for special pur
poses a very safe metal to use In com
pression. P'ire aluminum Is white with
a decirta bluish tint, which becomes
much moro marked on exposure, when
n thin film of white oxide on Its sur
face prevents further tarnishing from
the air, but seems to give by contrast
to the metal as a background an en
hanced bluish tint.

WAS ANCIENT ROMAN ROAD
Watllng Street Probably One of the
Oldest Thoroughfares In the
Watllng street from a very early pe
riod was applied to an old Itomnn rond
that extended across England east and
west from Dover through London and
into Wales. One historian snys: "The
milky way was known to our early
English ancestors as Watllng street,
signifying tho rond by which the he
roic sons of Wneltla marched across
tho heavens. When they settled In
Englnnd they transferred the nnme
Watllng street to tho grent Romnn
rond which they found traversing the
Island, from London to Chester, Tor
Hons of the rond still bear the nnme."
Tho Drltlsh cyclopedia accepts that
part of the trndltlon thnt applies the
nnme of Wnfllng street to the old Ilo
mnn rond, but It Ignores the milky wny
theory nnd snys: "Tho derivation of
Watllng Is unknown, but nn Ensllsh
personnl name may Ho behind It. In
the Elizabethan period and nfter It,
the nnme Wntllng street seems to hnvo
been nppllod by nntlqunrlcs to many
Roman or reputed Roman roads In va

mnp makers and Inferior writers on
Romnn roads still perpetunte the Ac
