We are told   by this   individual |     A

Its influence on iron is similar to
that of tungsten, but the use of
molybdenum in stell gives the steel
a greater toughness, at the same
time rendering it more readily
worked when hot. Molybdenum
steel also stands hardening better
than that alloyed with tungsten.
For tool steel 2 to 4 per cent, of
molybdenum is added, for other]
qualities from 1 to 2 per cent.
Ores of molybdenum, which is
never found in a native state, but
generally in the form of molybdenite, a sulphate of molybdenum con-
tontaining when pure 41 per cent,
of sulphur and 50 per cent, molybdenum, have been discovered in
many places, notably in Sweden,
where extensive deposits occur at
Veslanfors and on Ekhoim island.
It has also been found recently near
Lake Chelan in the Okauagan district of Washington. A vein of
molybdenite one foot wide '
found on the line ofthe White Pass
railway and a company formed at
Skagway to work it. This deposit
is noticeable as it is reported to
contain $50 in gold to the ton.—
