Interesting Experiment For The Microscope





The embryo grain of wheat, at the time of blossoming, being carefully

taken out of the husk, will be found to have a small downy tuft at its

extremity, which, when viewed in a microscope, greatly resembles the

branches of thorn, spreading archwise, in opposite directions. By

expanding a few of the grains, and selecting the most perfect, a very

pretty microscopic object will be obtained for preservation.
