CHEMISTRY IN BUSINESS.'
Some Idea Briefly Given ns to Ita
Howard C. Parmelce, In Success.
A chemist renders very valuable ser
vice to a railroad company and inci
dentally to tho traveling public by
protecting his company against pqor
grades of steel In boilers and rails, and
poor Iron in wheels. Upon his analyst
will depend tho selection of water "for
boiler purposes, and coal for engines
and blacksmith shops. Paints and oils
nro submitted to him for the purpose
of detracting any adulteration, while
babbitt metal and brass will be accept
ed or rejected according to his unnlysls,
lu short, tho nubile little appreciated
tho scientific care taken for Its safety,
and knows little of the varied duties of
tho chemist of a groat railroad com
pany. In like manner, the work of a
chemist in any great commercial indus
try could bo shown to bo equally valu
able and necessary.
It might bo interesting', at this point,
to udd n fow of tho numerous "fakes"
and adulterations which tho chemist
exposes. Alcoholic liquors uro found

put of butter turns out to bo a worth

fit tlsfaotory and expensive experiments
which chemists will advise tho unwary
to turn away from. Antimony sulphide

found to consist mainly of clmreonl.und
