whilst the changes which tho honey

syrup, without a trace of solid sugar

gradually rosumna a crystallite ap

What is Tin War 7
It doos not appear to be genorally
known tbat tbe article so commonly
tisod for household nleusila, for
cans, for roofing, etc., called "tin,"
really contains very little tin, sel
dom more than one part in forty or
fifty. Tin, pure, ia a silvery white
metal, and is the lightostand eatiest
melted of all tbe metals in common
use it boing about five eighth as
heavy as lead,, aud require only
about two-thirds tbe best to melt it
I'ure tin is called "block-tin," bnt it
is rarely used pure, the utensils
said to be made of block tin. being
alloys with otber metals. Our com
mon tin ware is really tin pUto a
thin sheet of iron, com tea witb a
fllui of tin. Dales of iron of tbe
proper size snd tbiokooss are sour
ed witb sand and acid until perfectly,
clean, and then dipped several times
in melted tin i a coating of tin of
variable thickness adheres to tbe
tbe iron. Tbe object o( coatiug iron
witb tin in this manner is to protect
tbe iron from rusting. Tin, when
exposed to air, does not rust or even
tarnish, while iron readily does co,
