wonders never cease? It
seems that the wonders of the
fairyland called by the prosaic cog

and a native of Lebanon. The laboratory is the only one of its kind
in the world and is an experiment
of great interest not only to the
University students, but to heating
and ventilating engineers everywhere. It is composed of a number
of glass compartments, each section
being regulated to that of the native land of the plants and animals
therein. Certain compartments permit the penetration of the ultraviolet rays produced by a
sun. Perhaps you can appreciate thatl
