The Limb Pkocess of Blasting. A
hot? aud interesting method, called,
the "lime process" has lately been
discovered in England for breaking
oTucoal in a mine -without running
ny of the risks inseparable from
Wasting. The process, which is said
by tbjo London Echo to be a decided
Uccelss. is briefly this:Holes are dril
led yfe the solid coal at intervals
nje&r the roof, and into these are in
serted "cartridges" of highly com
pressed S ery canstic lime. The car
tridges are three inches in diameter,
and of any desired length, but they
ato mude -with a groove into which a
Bniull iron pipe can be inserted. The
Ss beWr filled and the pipe inser-
ra, if is plugged or tamped to pre
sent fke escape of steam, and a num
ber being ready, a small force-pump
is attached by a flexible tube to the
pipe knd the water forced in, which,
ing, -wots the lime. The pipe
lion closed by a stopcock, and the
aamo operation repeated at the next
hole Tne hrst result is the conver
sion of the water into steam, which
itself -tends to force the coal down ;
but after a time the lime swells with
irresistablo power, and the sprags
bng removed, the coal comes down
in largo blocks. The operation of
yratering the lime is performed very
rapidly, a few minutes sufficing to
jire" any required number of, car-r'-idees.
