A singular way oí rernovmg oxygen frorn the air by the aid of a plant is described by Dr. T. L. Pbipson in The Chemical News. Inside a glass bell jar, suspended over water, is placed a mushroom, and sunlight is allowed to fall upon the plant. The mushroom absorbs the oxygsn from the air in the jar, and the carbonic acid forraed duriug the process is absorbed by the water, which gradually rises in the jar to one-fifth of its height. The mushroom now dries up, but its animation is only suspended, as may be proved by introducing beside it a green plant, vehen it yeill recommence to vegetate, being nourished by the oxygen exhaled from the fresh plant.
