fha elementary gaaaa In tha at-
■waphara are eight in number, ao far
aa present knowledge dlacloata. They
are fottad In the following proportion*:
fRtrogon. 71 por cant; oxygen, 21 per

etffome, con a lata of argon, neon, kryp
iM, xenon, hydrogen and helium.
Air Graduate Industry New.

traction of tha gaeeoua ore* of the at-
mosphere, la a relatively new comer In
•nr baft Ufa. Its development fol-
tewed the perfecting of apparatus for
eempreaalng and refrigerating air to a
flgntd atete. After the air la liquefied,
the varloua elements composing It may
he enparated from one another, because
dneb has Its own evaporation point.
Perhaps 89 per cent of the oxygen
recovered from the elr Is now used In
welding and In cutting by mean* of the
eatyacetylene torch. Because of the
lateeee heat generated In burning
ttene gaaea togetheav-tbat Is, a tem-
perature of 6,332 degrees, Fahrenheit,

readily end quickly.
Mltfogen and argon have come Into
rather wide application for filling In-
candescent lamps. Until recently, the
common practice In lamp making wa*
to create a low-pressure or partial
weotim In tha bulb which, of course,
wax naceeaary to prevent the oxidation
e! the filament. With the perfection
of the tungsten filament and the de
walopment of the inert-gas filled lamp
It became possible to produce a greater
Intensity of light with a given amoun*
of electric power.
Naan Rare Gas of tha Air.
Recently, It haa been suggested that
nitrogen be used In the canning Indus
Pry to displace oxygen from the con
tfchtar at the time of teallng. Mtro-
pes, because of its Inertness, does not
tnjnra compound* or combinations, and
It i* believed by some experimenter.-
the nitrogen would, therefore, keep the
foodstuffs fresher then would he the
caaa If oxygen were present.
Neon is one of the rare gases of
th* air. It requires 55,000 volumes of
air to extract one volume of neon, li

ly aa an electric current Indicator be

Helium Not Inflammable.
Helium, another of the rare g»-es. I,
recovered more economically from
natural gas, aa It Is found in some
garts of the country, particularly near
Fort Worth, Tex. The air service of
both the army and navy are interested
•specially In the gas for Inflating
dirigibles. Its atomic weight is four,
while that of hydrogen Is one, hydro
gen being th* lightest substance
Helium has the highly Important
quality of being noninflammable, and In
this respect differs from hydrogen,
which Is highly Inflammable, and here-
with explosive Intensity, forming wa
ter vspor with the oxygen of the air
While helium ia four times as heavy
ss hydrogen, It is only one- utrth i«
fceavy as oiygen, and two-sevenths ns
tieavy as nlttogen, ao that a balloon in
dated with It ascends readily.
A sum of $30,000,000 la Invested, proh
ably, In plants in the United states

The officials believe that this In •
