Moissan's experiment throws strong light on the condition of the carbon in melted iron, a question of great practical import. Finally, the discovery suggests additional information as to the processes going on beyond our earth, which sometimes send meteorites to us laden with diamonds; within the earth, by which reservoirs may be filled with natural gas. The discovery widens the field for the transformation of matter and increases, as well, the possibility of interpreting the secrets of the mineral world. Samuel E. T1llman, Col. U. S. A.
