The Frenoh soientifio journal, ' La Nature,' states that the extraction of oil from wood m Sweden is becoming year by year a more important industry. Those parts of the trees whioh have hitherto been regarded aB useless, suoh as the stumps and rootß, are no longer left m the forest to rot, but are subjected to various methods of treatment, by which not only wood oil but also turpentine, creosote, acid of vinegar, oharooal, and tar, are obtained from them. The "Merchant's Journal" reports that the Frenoh Minister of Agriculture has recently had a number of tests made whioh all go to show that meat can be preserved by sugar m a much more satisfactory manner than by salt. The salt is somewhat cheaper, but its effeot is to destroy quite a degree of the nutritive qualities of the meat with whioh it is brought into contact ; while if meat is paoked m powdered Bugar a coating is formed over the outside, the juioeß of the meat are retained, and not the leaet harm results. When eugar-preserTed meat is to be used, all that is necessary is the soaking of it m water, whioh speedily removes whatever traces there may be of the preserving substanoe. It is thought that the result of this investigation may lead m time to important changes m the meat-preserving industry.
