Attention was called to the fact that varying proportions of common salt and water change materially the solidifying-point of the mixture. On a chart it was shown that the freezing-point of the mixture is lowered until a so-called eutectic alloy is obtained, when the point again is higher, according to the proportions. From analogy the same is observed in certain mixtures of metals.
