Owing to the very general and
increasing use of gasolene, l:he fol

peared in the New York American,
"Properly handled, gasolene is as
safe as water-carelessly handled,
and nitro-glycerine is not one whit
less dangerous. Yet ther?'s many a

.. "Most of us appreciate tha~ gaso

that gasoline used to-day m?iy ex

extremely volatile, the vapors which
so rapidly pass off are heavier than

floor, often collecting in a uorner
under a table. Then a flame is
brought into proximity and the fire
department is kepftbusy.
"This vapor will slowly travel

In case of gasoline becoming
accidentally ignited, it is useless to
try to extinguish the flames by

will only float on the water and
continue to burn. Dry sand is very
effective as an extinguisher, and a
