addition to an exceptionally good representation of
the more interesting of Maine's minerals.

The specimens have been selected with a view
to showing perfection of crystallization, beauty of
color, and the noteworthy characteristics of minerals
in general. Many are very rare, others of a quality
not easily duplicated. The wonder of the novice
is excited by some of them, such as the lodestone,
whose invisible power lifts nails and other pieces
of metal; tiie Uruguay "water bottle," whose
translucent walls show a spoonful of water securely
sealed up ; and the huge Iowa goede, which is a
rough, rouiuled stone when closed, but two concave
basins of marvellous quartz and calcite crystals
when opened.



Tie a string around your finger to remind you
of the Poland Spring book of views.
