Micro" Photography and Armour Plato. The application of micro-photography to metalSt And its revelations of the changes of metallic Structure produced by various methods of work- Ing, have resulted in very striking improvement* and discoveries in hardening steel. One of tht most remarkable is the Holzer-Frith proceiss-in which the alteration in the texture of the metal is «reduced by rearranging its molecular structure. [eat and electricity are uti'-sed as exciting agent* on the crystals of which the metal is composed, and are employed while the metal is surrdunded by Biercury in a hermetically-sealed vessel. No great alteration in the metai is perceptible to the unaided eye; but when examined under the microscope it is Men that the crystalline structure is very much more regular &nd uniform than before. This meaD! Beater toughness, greater elasticity; the metal, af Horoloyical Journal points out, will withstand frtater, more sudden, and more continuous ttmux HUroughouo Its mass.
