For the practical Examination each Candidate is required to provide himself with the necessary re-agents and apparatus.

The following lists, which contain all that is needful according to the usual course of analysis, are intended as a guide to Candidates in making this provision. But each one is at liberty to furnish himself for the Examination with such materials as he has been accustomed to employ.

[blocks in formation]

Three funnels, about 2 inches diameter.

A dozen test-tubes, about 6 inches long by § inch diameter.
Another dozen test-tubes, about 6 inches long by inch


A packet of cut filters, about 3 inches diameter.

A stand for test-tubes, to hold 24 tubes.

A glass stirring rod, about 8 inches long.

A small retort stand to support the funnels.

A spirit lamp, to contain about 3 oz., provided with a wick and

with 5 oz. of spirit in a bottle.

A washing bottle, holding about 1 pint, to be filled at the time of the Examination.

Two pieces of platinum foil, about 2 × 1 inch, and two platinum wires, about 3 inches long.

A mouth blowpipe.

Two or three pieces of hard glass tubing, and of charcoal, for blowpipe experiments.

A bent tube, fitted with a cork, for conveying a gas from one test-tube to another.

A pair of tongs to hold the platinum foil.

A penknife or spatula.

A cloth.

A test-tube brush.

The room in which the Examination is to be held will be opened half an hour before the time, for the purpose of allowing Candidates to unpack and arrange their re-agents and apparatus. Distilled water and matches will be provided for them.

N. B. The attention of Candidates is called to the importance of writing out their analytical notes in a proper manner. The Examiner can judge of their knowledge and work only from these notes, and cannot give any one credit for a complete analysis if any steps or important statements are omitted in the description of it. The account of the examination of each substance should be written out before proceeding to the next, so that the actual experimenting and the recording of experiments may be carried on as far as possible together. Candidates are cautioned against the common practice of wasting their limited time in preliminary, and therefore random, experiments with the blowpipe. They should first discover by a systematic analysis what the bases are and then confirm their conclusions by as many special tests as possible including those made by the blowpipe.
