New Use for Refined Paraffinc Wax.
A now and important use for relined
paralllno wax seems to have been dis
covered by h prominent rcsidont of
Ohio, living near Lancaster, who had
two trees badly damaged by storm, ono
being a maple and tho other an apple.
In onch caso a Inrgo limb was broken
down from tho trunk, but still attached
to It Tho limb9 wero propped up and
fastened securely with strrps, very
much as n broken leg might bo fastened
with splints, and then molted relined
wax poured into and overall tho cracks.
Tho "surgical operation" was entirely
successful. Tho Paralllno prevented
the escapo of tho sap, kopt out the rain
and moisture which would havo rotted
tho trees, prevented tho depredations of
insects, and tho limbs seem thus far to
bo perfectly re-attached to tho trees.
