Worlds PlatinurH Supply
The maih source of the world’s sup
plies of platinum is normally Russia,
which once had an output of 300,000
ounces per annum, derived from gravel
beds. As a result of the war the price
of platinum Is about three times what
It was formerly, and the temptation
has been considerable in this couptry
to boom platinum mining.
To this end all sorts of properties
have been pronounced to be capable of
producing platinum from ores of vari
ous kinds, and even shales and sands.
As a matter of fact, this country Is
practically destitute of platinum, ns It
is of nickel and tin, and the cases in
which the United States bureau of
mines has been able to check claims
advanced have revealed nt the most
practically unworkable traces of the
metal,” writes Engineering.
Strict Forest Law
Defacement of signboards and oth
er government property in the nation
al forests is a misdemeanor which
often results in fines. In the Umatilla
national forest, Washington, a tourist
who wanted hts name to be handed
down to posterity via a signpost was
overtaken within a few hours from the
tiriie he practiced writing his signa
ture. The judge gave him his cheiee
of backtracking 25 miles and erasing
his name from the signboard or pay
ing a fine. He chose the former.
Internal Organs on Film
Loman and Comandon, two doctors of
France on the faculty of the school of
medicine at Paris university, have suc
reeded in taking motion pictures of the
internal organs. The film was taken
ot the rate of 17 Images a second. The
leveloped film showed the movements
Df the heart especially well and the in
vention will be of g^eat aid in diag
nosis, it is said.
Device to Test Dyes
A new apparatus, called a “fadeo
meter,” has been Invented In Europe
for testing the fastness of dyes. Vio
let carbon arc lights are used, 40 sam
ples being tested at one time If nec
essary. Half the sample Is exposed
to the light, and the other half pro
tected by a metal shade, so that after
test an exact comparison can be made.

his death was given as dialation of the
heart. Mrs. Harrington, their son,
