As turther experiments are carnea with tho new gas called helium - which was recoguized in the sun before it had been foiuid on the earth - the more remarkable it appears. Maiiy cheiuists believe it consists üf two gases, yet they have uot been able satisiactorly to divide it. Professor Ranisay, one of its discoverers, has failed iu every attempt to make it enter into a eheinical combination. Lord Bayleigh has found that it possesses by far the lowest refractivity ever observed iu auy gas, and surprise is expressed at the astonishing distanees traversed by electric sparks in darting through helium.
