It is established by chemistry, that
there are seventeen elementary substances
in the composition of the human body.
More than nine-tenths of the whole bulk
of the system is composed of four gases
which are invisible when in a free and
uncombined state, viz: oxygen, hydrogen,
carbon and nitrogen. Besides these sub-
stances, there is, in every full man, enough
stances, there is, in every iuu man, enougu
phosphorus and sulphur to tip a gross of

lime, to form a lye sufficiently strong to

ANewUsc of (he Leaves of flic Pine.
Not far from Bereslau, in Silesia, in a
domain called the Prarie of Ilumbolt,
there exists two establishments as aston
ishing for their produce as for their uniou.
One is a manufacture which converts pine
leaves into a sort of cotton or wool ; the
other offers to invalids, as curative baths,
the water used in the manufacture of that
vegetable wool. Both have been selected
by Mr. de Panuewitz, inventor of a chem
ical process, by means of which it is possible
to extract from the long and slenderleaves
of the pine a very fine ficaccous substance
which he has named woody wool, because
like the ordinary wool, it can be curled,
felted and woven.
All the acicular leaves of the pine fir,
and of the coniferai in general, are com
posed of a bundle of fibrillie extremly fine
and tough surrounded and held together
by a resinous substance under the form
of a thin pellicle. When by a decoction
and the use of certain chemical agents the
resinous substance is dissolved, it is easy to
separate the fibres to wash them and free
them from all foreign substance. Accor
ding to the mode of preparation employed,
the woolly substance acquires a quality
more or less fine, or remains in its coarse
state ; in the first instance it is used as
wadding, in the second to stuff mattress
es. If the pine has been preferred to the
other kinds of pitch trees, it is on account
of the length of its needle shaped leaves.
It is thought that a similar result might
be obtained from other trees of the same
The tree can be stripped of its leaves
when quite young without any injury.
The operation takes place when they are
still green. A man can gather two hun
dred pounds of leaves a day.

Sometiiixg New. Ingenuity is every
day adding something to the comforts and
conveniences of life. We were yesterday
shown some samples of an improved met
allic Pen, which is exempted from the
great defect in the steel pen, and that is
corroding. This is obviated simply by
the skilful application of Gntta Percha.
Mr. B. L. C. Schlessinger. is the inven
tor. The pen is coated with gutta percha,
which is unaffected by the strongest acids,
and, being pointed with platina, the pen
writes as smoothly as a lead-pencil. They
are to bc had of the sole agent in Wash

dollars a groce.
A Creditors Stratagctn. A week or
two ago four creditors started from Bos
ton, in the same traiu of cars, for the pur
pose of attaching the property of a cer

Maine. He owed each one separately,

they arrived at the depot at Farmington,
which was three mile3 from where the
debtor did business, they found nothing

The 'fourth man' quickly paid over the
money, took the reins and backed the cab
up to a bank slipped it from the harness
and tipped it up so that the door could
not be opened, and jumped upon the horse'.-
back and rode off 'lick-a-ty-switch,' while
the 'insiders' were looking out of the win
dow, feeling like singed cats. He rode to
a lawyer's, and got a writ made and serv
ed, and his debt secured, and got back to
'the liotol inst as the 'insiders' ?anif nn
