METALLIC PROPERTIES OF ZINC SULPHIDE. Experiments of the United States Bureau of Standards have shown that zinc sul- phide may be prejpared in the form of short wires or strips, like a metal, and that when thus prepared it has many of the properties of a metal. The wire, which may be drawn hot, is found to con- duct electricity like a metal of high speci- fic resistance and practically zero tem- perature coefficient. The strips, rolled at zoom temperature, h*ve a large tempera- ture coefficient, and show both metallic and electrolytic conduction at the same time. The resistance of these strips hae been examined with both alternating and direct current, and hae nearly always been j found higher in the former oaee than in the latter. The pttaaage of a email alter- j nating current of a frequency as low as j sixty cycles increased temporarily the re- ] swtance of die sulphide, while a small direct current produced the opposite effect, j <
