THE DAILY EVMINU TELEGRAPHPHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, DECEMBER, G, 1B70.
DTNAMITE. The assertion that the more dastr.ictive war is made, the greater the toudenc to shorten its duration, is perhaps not far from the truth. Nevertheless, ono recognizes with something of a feeling of horror that many of the terrible means in vogue for the slaughter of the hurunu race Lave their origin in investigations undertaken by scientific met with the view of increasing the knowledge or ameliorating the condition of mankind in general. Thin in essentially the cans with the aubstanoe whose name heads this article. Invented originally for the purpose of assisting the psncef ul labors of the miner nnd the engineer, it is now em ployed as the explosive agent of the torpedoes which defend the rivers and harbors of Ger many against the aggressions of the Trench fleet. Every ore knows what glycerine is a clear Byrnpy liquid, sweet to the taste, and hoeuo what grdusy to the touch. Its scopo of em ployment ranges from the surgeons dispen sary to the lady 's bondoir. ChemiHU term it a triatomic alcohol, and it may be derived from fat or t allow by the action of liuio and anlphnric aoid. Its properties are many and varions. but an they have no bearing npon the present subject, we shall abstain from noticing them. If a quantity of nitric acid be added to twiee its weight of enlphurio acid, and glycerine be poured into this, and carefully stirred the whole being surrounded by a freezing mixture wo obtain that wonderful substance known as nitro glycerine, which has more than ten times the explosive force of gunpowder. It forms on the surface as un oily-looking liquid of a pale yellow color, is perfectly inodorous, and has a sweet aromatic taste. It is poisonous, whe ther taken internally or absorbed through the skin, and small doses of it produce distressing headachea. Although practically insoluble in water, it dissolves readily in either alcohol or wood-spirit. Nitro-glycerine was discovered in tho year 1S47, by an Italian, named Ascogue Bobero; but its practical application is eulirely doe to the researches of Alfred Nobel, a Swedish mining engineer. It does not explode when brought into contact with fire, and remains unchanged eveD when raised to the tem perature of boiling water; but at about forty degrees Fahrenheit it becomes con verted into au icy mass, which merely re quires fric tion to develop all its explosive qualities. This peculiarity had been the cause of many lamentable accidents, when M. Nobel commenced a series of experi ments with the view of rendering its em ployment comparatively safe. After some time, he found that mixing it with about ten per cent, of wood-spirit rendered it practi cally harmless, nnd this method is now gene rally adopted. When required for uro, the wood-spirit can be removed, and all the pro perties of the nitro-glycerine restored by the simple addition of water, which, mixing with the spirit, sets free, as it were, the nitro-glycerine. The only drawback to this plan ia that when the nitro-glycorine is re converted into its original stu e, it id of course quite as dangerous as ever. To obviate this, M. Nobel has invented a new mixture, which he terms "dynamite." It consists of seventy-five per cent, of ni tro-glycerine and twenty-five per cent, of very tine t--uui,Vand is a brownish-looking powder, something like sawdust, only gceusy to the tone!). It burns without explosion whed placed in a fire or brought into con tact with a lighted match. If struck with a hammer un an anvil, the portion struck takes tiro without inflaming the dynamite around it. As a proof of the perfect security with which it may be handled, we may mention that M. Nobel has placed h case con taining about tight pounds of it (equal to nearly eighty pounds of ordinary powder) on a brink lire, and that the dyimruitu was con mimed without noise or shock; while a similar case was (lung from a height of sixty-five feet on a hard rock w ithout producing the slight est explosion. A weight of over two hundred pounds was then let fall from a height of twenty feet upon a box of dynamite; tho box was smashrd, but again there was no explo sion. The nsuil method of firing dynamite is by means of a copper capsule cout;iiniag fulmi nate of silver, the latter beiDg inllamed either by the ordinary slow-match, or by the electric spark. Tho employment of this capsule and detonating composition is absolutely essen tial to tho t xplosion of dynamite. In order to give some idea of the force developed by Mich an eypli.ion, it may be mentioned that a spoonful of it placed upon a block of . quartz, covered with brickH, uud tired, caused the quartz to bo broken up in to pieces about tho size of a pea, and reduced the bricks to pow der. Like nitro-glycerine, dynamite con geals at a comparatively high temperature; but to restore it to its proper condition, it is only necefsury to put it in a warm place, or if it is contained in closed cartridges, to plunge it into warm water. In mining operations, dynamite possesses many advantages over nitro-glycerine, be sides those already mentioned. It has been usual, for instance, to pour the nitro-glycerine in a liqvdd state into the holes bored in the rock for its reception; and running from these into some unknown crevice, it has fre quently, when fired, produoed au explosion under the very feet of the miners, causing, of course, a disastrous loss of life. To ob viate this; it has been necessary to employ cartridges which do not completely fill up the bore-boles, so that a portion of the explosive force is wasted. Dynamite, ou the other hand, being of a pasty consistence, yields to the least pressure, and completely fills up the holes, so that a given weight of this snb stance is almost as effective as a given weight of glycerine, while at the same time it is safer ven than gunpowder. It remains to be seen whether the antici pated advantages will be derived from its em ployment as ammunition of war. Mask Twain's Advice to Little Giisls. Good little girls ought not to make mouths at their teachers for every trilling offense. This retaliation bhould only be resorted to nnder peculiarly aggravated circumstances. If you have lothing but a rag doll staffed with sawdust, while one of your more fortu nate little playmates has a costly china one, you should treat her with a show of kindness nevertheless. And you ought not to attempt to make a forcible swap with her unless your conscience would justify you in it and you know you are able to do it. You ought never to take your little brother's "chewing gum" at 'ay from him by main force; it is better to rope him in with the promise of the first two dollars and a half you find floating down the river on a grind atone. In the artless simplicity natural to his time of life, be will regard it as a per fectly fair transaction. In all ages of the world this eminently tdauiible fiction has lured the obtuse infant to financial ruin and disaster. If at any time you find it necessary to cor rect your brother, do not correct him with mud never on any account throw mud at him, because it will soil Lis clothes. It U better to scald him n little; for then yon attain desirable results yon seoure his im mediate attention to the lessons yon are in culcating, and at the same time your hot water will have a tendency to remove im purities from his person knd possibly the skin also, in spots. If your mother tells yon to do a thing, it is wrong to reply that you won't. It is better and more becoming to intimate that you will do as she bids you, and then afterwards act quietly in the matter according to the dic tates of your better judgment. You should ever bear in mind that it is to your parents that yon are indebted for your food and your nice bed, and for your beauti ful clothes, and for the privilege of staying home from school when you let on that you are sick. Therefore you ought to respect their little prejudices and humor their little whims, and put up with their foibles until they get to crowding you too much. Good little girls always show marked defe rf nee for the aged. Yon ought never to "sass" old reople unless they "sass" you first. The Simple Annai.s ok thk Poor. At Fortugal Cove, writes our Newfoundland correspondent, I used to stroll through the village in "the glomiiin," and through the open doors and uncurtained windows I could seethe inmates of the cottage "at home," and Item something of their "homely joys and destiny obscure." The lads and lassos I often met in couples, roaming about in the sweet summer evening, and in many cases, it was evident from the friendly relations between them, that a new cottage would shortly be needed. In fact, the grand fmssion was cropping out in this little liam et as strongly as in the gas-lighted city, and I pondered on that universal law of sympathy between the sexes which was at that moment drawing myriads of fishes towards the shore from the far oil' depths of ocean, and which, bounding and billowing in the human breast, creates the sacred ties of hnsband and wife, homo and family; laying the foundation of States and building up family life all over the world. And as 1 saw through the opon door the big, weather-beaten fisherman tossing his crow ing baby in his strong arms, while its little fists were clutching at his bushy whiskers, and the mother looked on its precocious per formances with pride and joy, I thought that the happiness of this poor couple, who had perhaps scarcely a blanket on their bed, or more than a barrel of 11 our as a provision for the future, was as great as that of the lord and lady of broad acres, rejoicing over the advent of the heir of all their vast pos sesions. A Taunton, Mass., bee-keeper seems to have had rather a "sweet thing of it." During the past year he raised and sent to market a ton wclpht of honey. The novelty of a woman of forty-five run nlner away with a youth of nineteen was re cently witnessed by the louugers about the rail road 'depot at Detroit, Mich. Richard Shello, of Loiransport, Ind., having failed In au effort to induce a barber to cut his throat with a razor, retired iti disgust from the shop of the latter, and swallowed enough arse nic to kill a dozen men. Captain Norman Kurd, one of the last ot the veterans who linked their fate to the Re public of Texas, died recently at Galveston. Ho was born at Middle Iladdam, Conn., on the 31st of March, 1785. The Troy Press asks what has become of the Ellsworth Monument Fund? "The enows of ten winters." adds that journal, "have fallen on his grave, and yet the life service of loyalty has not crystallized into a monument to mark the epot." A Port Huron, Mich., dealer has just re turned from Liverpool, where he made a cou- traet to deliver 10,000 barrels of apples at 5 per barrel, tie realized a net profit on the transac tion of iVi't per barrel. Colonel Henry C. Wilcox, of Fall River, died suddenly at the Massachusetts General Hospital a few. days ago. lhe deceased com manded a colored regiment at New Orleans at the time General Butler was relieved by General Banks. Two hundred and fifty-s'rx feet of pier, up to tho water-liue, have already Deen constructed at Chicago with the s.w.uuu appropriation made during the last session of Congress. The whole work of building a harbor refuge, it Is estimated, Will cost U24!l,875-52. Mrs. Flynt, the plaintiff in the celebrated Flvnt-Coolidge dress-making case at Boston, has abandoned her exceptions to Judge Heed's rulings, on which it would have beeu possible to cairv the case to the Supreme Court, and has accepted the amouut awarded by the jury, with costs. A Minnesota paper, In referring editorially to the after-dinner speech of an admirer and subscriber, says: "Mr. Barlow's inimitable style of elocution and gesticulation knocked into a cocked hat the most sublime, powerful, and successful tragic efforts of Forrest, Ma creody, Murdoch, Booth, and Fechter." California seems to be still overstocked with young men who find it very dithcult to secure situations. A gentleman recently writing trom San Francisco savs: "there is not a solitaryopenlng m the State of California, vast as it is, tor another booK-keeper, clerk, sales. man, half-educated doctor, minlng-btock broker, or general adventurer. A tinait travelling salesman for a commer cial house in New York, who made the acquaint ance of a beautiful, young lady of Cincinnati, at an Eastern watering-place last summer, recently stole a march upou her dilatory lover by sud denly appearing in the native city his of c Laimir, and marrying her in less than hour an alter arriving. A petition to the Legislature of Michigan, asking for the passage of a law to prohibit the tying of the feel or legs of aulmals for trans portation, is at present in circulation for signa ture throughout that State. The object is to compel butchers and market men to provide caeca or crates for conveying cattle and sheep from one point to another. The old-fashioned German custom of ad' vertleing the hetrothal ot young people was recently renewed by a Teutonic family residing at Cleveland, Uhio, in the following announce ment which appeared in the Akron Ger mania: "The betrothal of our daughter Andrea with the printer, Mr. W. Miller, in Akron, Ohio, is hereby given notice of. II. Geutz and wife, Andrea Gentz, WUhelm Miller, betrothed." Thc Indianapolis newspapers appear to bo rather badly exercised in an endeavor to dis cover the standiD of a mysterious individual who settled down there some time since and started an immense wholesale cracker establish ment in partnership with a worthy young cltl r.en. The individual in question bails from Boston, but having absented himself from busi ness for some weeks past, his creditors have begun to grow suspicious, and declare that if he does not soon return they will brand him as the central figure in a swindle ol no mean propor tion s.
