Lavoisier and Chomlstry.
Lavoisier (1743-94) comes very
near being the "father of chemis
try." Although neither the science
of chemistry nor yet a change in its.
objects can be said to have orig
inated with Lavoisier, the means he
introduced of attaining those ob
jects, tho ideas he put forth con
cerning the constitution of bodies
and the explanation he gave/of vari
ous phenomena were strictly new
and gave to this science in the twen
ty years preceding his death a com
pletely altered aspect. The mine of
chemistry had yielded rich returns
long before Lavoisier came. He
availed himself of the old work
ings and, extending them, opened
the main lode.—New York Ameri
Growth of Eloctrio Scions*.
An Englishman, Dr. Gilbert of
Colchester, may be considered as
the founder of the science of elec
tricity. He was the first to care
fully repest the observations of the
ancients and applv them to the prin
ciples of philosophical investigation.
Dr. Gilbert's experiments, extend
ing through many years, were pub
lished in his book "De Magnete,"
which may safely be said to be the
first modern work on the science of
electricity. Gilbert was born in 1540
and died in 1603.—-Exchange.
