Six Varieties of Aal��-��tns.
There is probably no product of Inorganic nature about which thero Is so much
popular mystery nnd uilsoonoeptlon as
asbestus. It Is vaguely understood that
the principal olaim uf this remarkable
product is that it cannot bo consumed by
fire. There aro, however, no loss than six
varieties of asbestus, eaoh of which possesses qualities peculiar to itself. They
may bo classified as follows: Amanthue,
In whloh the libers aw so exceedingly
long, flexible and elastic lhat thoy may In
woven Into oloth; common asbestus, with
the flbere muoh less fleilblo��� it is heavier
, than the flrst variety, a dull green in col-
���r, sometimes pearly tn luster and oily tc
the touch; mountain cork, light enough
to float on water; mountain learber, alsc
very light, but thinner and more ticxiblt
than the lost; mountain paper or blue oa
' bestus; mountain wood, whloh ln external
appearance rossinble3 dry wood. As ���
nietter of fact, nearly all varieties have
more or less the oppooranoo of fossil uud
wood.    Asbestus has been found ln nearly
I all p��rts of ths globe.���New York Led^eE
