It Is about 93 per cent silica and is con
sequently very hard to work. It Is
being worked, however, in Bavaria. It
in said that when mixed with water It
tonne a plastic, sticky mass, which,
when dried, becomes firm and resisting,
whilo Its volume doea not chango when
exposed to tho fire; further, melted met
ala and Bcorla do' not cling to It, and bo
apyrlto has been found useful for lin
ing furnaces. In tho neighborhood of
the mines apyrlto tempered with water
is used instead of lime water and .iIbo
for plastering. It has In some places
superseded fire-brick lining. 33 lu tho
case of various furnaces. The cupola
of a large foundry can bo thus lined In

tho same material made up Into bricks.

up such violent delights as wrenching
off door-knockers, assaulting policemen
or squaring up to bargeea. Not that

the football matches in tho parks will
readily testify, but, except .it such

and temper under perfect control and
.cultivates a dignified repose of manner
which would od'trodlt to a member of
