Notwithstanding the digression, we have not wandered so far The flame will now be recognised to evolve a dense smoke, from the study of metals as the reader may have supposed. which may be white or black according to circumstances. If This light and invisible gas -hydrogen-has many of the pro- collected from within the flame thus, fig. 39, the stain is black, perties of a metal ; indeed by certain chemists it is considered Fig. 39. to be a metal; at any rate, it has the singular property of com. bining with two metals in a marked degree, and with a third to a less extent. These metals are arsenic, tellurium, and antimony. This circumstance furnishes us with a sufficient link of connexion to lead us at once to arsenic as being the most important metal of the three; but there is another connecting link. Arsenic, as I have mentioned already, is one of the few calcigenous metals (don't pass the term calci. genous without understanding it, I have explained its meaning once)--one of the calcigenous metals which does not yield a black precipitate with hydrosulphuric acid; so let arsenic be our present theme. The student has heard of arsenic frequently enough; he has perhaps, however, never seen it, for the true arsenic, i.e. the metal arsenic, is rare. What people usually call arsenic is really a white powder, a combination of arsenic with oxygen ; in like manner, the substance usually called manganese is being composed of particles of metallic arsenic; if collecte ! really an oxide of the true manganese, which is a britile metal without or above the flame, thus, fig. 40, the deposition : something like steel in aspect. Arsenic is also a resplendent brittle metai, as will be evident hereafter, Yig. 40. The substance I wish you to take for the purpose of studying the general properties of arsenic, is the white arsenic of the shops. There will be some difficulty in procuring this, however, druggists not being allowed to sell it, except disguised by the mixture of other substances; perhaps, therefore, the casier, and certainly the safer plan, will consist in the purchase of about a drachm of a very weak solution of white arsenic, used in medical practice under the denomination of liquor arsenicalis. The strength of this solution is one grain of white arsenic in fluid ounces ; a very weak solution consequently, but strong enough for our purposes. The experiments about to be performed are not theoretically interesting merely; they will comprehend one of the processes, and perhaps the best of al, followed in the process of extracting white, being in this case white arsenic, otherwise called arsenic from bodies which contain it. The objects I shall have in view are--firstly, the extraction of arsenic from the liquor metall c arsenic into its oxide is most readily observed arsenious acid or oxide of arsenic. The conversion of arealis : secondly, the examination by tests of the arsenic in the tube experiment, wherein the black crust of methus txtracted. tallic arsenic which extends a certain way up, żey to Experiment 1. Take a bottle with tobacco-pipe shank and perforated cork. Pour into the bottle, the usual ingre. Fig. 41, a, changes to white arsenic, say at b, and eventually escapes. Whilst operating with the tube, do not forget to smil the garlic-like odour produced by tric metal arsenit when volatilizing. This smell is an important indication of the presence of the metal.
