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

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

Colonel Henry C. Wilcox, of Fall River,
died suddenly at the Massachusetts General
Hospital a few. days ago. lhe deceased com

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."

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.
