We clip the following for the delectation of the workers in Boylston Hall:
Oh, come where the cyanides silently flow,
And the carburets droop o'er the oxides below,
Where the rays of potassium lie white on the hill,
And the song of the silicate never is still.
Come, oh, come, tum ti tum tum,
Proxide of bromine and uranium!
While alcohol's liquid at 30 degrees,
And no chemical change can affect manganese;
While alkalies flourish and acids run free,
My heart will be constant, dear Science, to thee,
Yes, to Thee! Fiddle dum de,
Zinc, borax, and bismuth, H, O plus C!
