Chicago.Minlng the air Is a pic- turesque term that has been applied to the extraction of "gaseous ores" from the atmosphere. Strictly speak- ing, the air we breathe Is a mechanical mixture of a number of gases, and It is because these gases are fiixed me- chanically ad not combired chemically that it is practicable tb separate or extract them commercially in order that they can be utilized for different purposes. The elementary gases in the at- mosphere are eight in number, so far as present knowledge discloses. They are f pund in the following proportions: Nitrogen, 78 per cent; oxygen, 21 per cent, and the remaining 1 per cent, by volume, consists of argon, neon, kryp- ton, xenon hydrogen and helium, Air Products industry New, The air-products industry, which is concerned commercially wltl the ex- traction of the gaseous ores of the at- mosphere, is a relatively new comer In our busy life. Its development fol- lowed the perfecting of apparatus for compressing and refrigerating air re a liquid state. After the air Is liquefied. the various elements composing it may be separated from one another, because each has itsown evaporation point. Perhaps 99 per cent of the oxygen recovered from the air is now used In welding and In cutting by means of the oXyacetylene torcl. .Because of the intense heat generated in burning these gases together---that is, a tem- perature of 6,832 degrees, FRhrenheit' steel and Iron can be cut or welded readily nd quickly. 1'Itrogen and argon have come into Torpedo Plane Screened by Smoke This cemarkable 0hotograph shows a navy torpedo plane flying through an .t-aftjald moke screen during recent battle practice off the coast of south- California.

Until recently, the common practice in lamp making was to create a low-pressnre or partial vacuum In the bulb which, of course, was necessary to prevent the oxidation of the filament. With the perfection of the tungsten filament and the de- velopment of the inert-gas-filled lamp It became possible to produce a greater intensity of light with a given amount ef electric power. Neon Rare-Gas of the Air. Recently, it has been mggested that nitroge be used In the canning Indus- try to displace oxygen from the con- tainer at [be time of sealing. Nitro- gen, because of its inertness, does not injure compounds or combinations, and it ls believed by some experimenters the nitrogen would, therefore, keep the foodstuffs fresher than Would be the case if oxygen were presenta Non is one of the rare gases of the air. It requires 55,000 volumes of air to extract one volume of neon. It has recently been etracted industrial- ly as an electric current indicator be- cause of Its acute sensibility to elec- trlclty. In the presence of an electric current It grows a deep orange color and, inclosed in a small glass tube. it Is used to indicate If spark plugs of the csllnders of gasoline engined are fune- tlonlng properly. By placing the tube against the spark plug while the engine Is run- nlng It Immedlatedly registers the con- dition of the plug whose dreult ha been interrupted. It also has an appli- cation in incandescent lamps used as signs. The fllamet of the lamp, In this case, is fasbioned into ; letter or a word and is made of a Special compo- sition steel.

Helium. another Of the rare gases, I recovered more economically from natural gas, as it is found In some parts of the country, particularly near Fort Worth, Tex. The alr service of both the army and navy are interested especially in the gas for Inflating dirigibles. Helium has the highly important quality of being noninflammable, and in this respect differs from hydrogen, which is ttlghly inflammable, andburns with explosive intensity, forming wa ter vapor with the ,xygen of the air. While helium Is four times as heavy as llydrogen, It is only one-fourth as heavy as oxygen, and two-sevenths as heavy as nitrogen, so that a balloon In- flated with it ascends readlly.
