“A long time before the experiments many of these bamboos were soaked together in absolute darkness, or in, as is said there on the Earth, orange ‘light’ obtained from the I burning of ‘Simkalash’ which was obtained from a certain kind of what is called ‘clay’ deposited in the soil of your planet, and the deposits of which are usually found near accumulations of ‘Salounilovian acids,’ which in their turn are formed from ‘Mamzolin’ or, as your favorites call it, ‘naphtha.’


“These bamboos were soaked in a liquid consisting of:

(1) The white of the eggs of the bird then called ‘Amersamarskanapa
(2) The juice of the plant called ‘Chiltoonakh
(3) The excretion of a quadruped being bearing the name ‘Kezmaral
(4) A specially prepared what is called ‘mercury-amalgam’


“When these bamboos had been thoroughly soaked, they were inserted one by one into other thicker bamboos which had not been prepared in the said manner, and the ends of which were hermetically sealed.


“These latter preparations were of course also made in absolute darkness, or in the orange light of Simkalash.
