The Wajs ol the Milkman*
Dairymen who are in the habit of diluting their milk with water have fonnd ont an ingenious plan of circumventing the public analysts. Under the act ol Parliament they can request that their milk shall be analyzed by the chemists at Somerset House, and this they now do. Their object is to gain a little time, for milk quickly begins to ferment, and it is not possible to test with accuracy a decomposed fluid, and say what it consisted of before decomposition set m. Dr. Wynter Blythe instances a recent case of a Waaler xchn nnlrl milk diluted With at least eight per cent, of water. He appealed to Somerset House, and after a little delay Somerset House declared that there was no evidence of the addition of water, so that the case was dismissed. That he had nevertheless made no mistake in the matter Dr. Blythe is certain, as the milk had beensubiected to an independent analysis by Mr. Colwell, who agreed with him. The only way out of the difficulty would be for each sanitary authority to have a freezing chamber, in which reference samples of milk, etc., could be frozen and preserved. Such a chamber would also be found useful for preserving meat supposed to be diseased until the evidence on both sides could be heard by a court of justice.?London News. Food by Chemistry.

WAR'S DEADLIEST WEAPON AND ITS POSSIBILITIES; It Will Vastly Strengthen Our Coast Defences?A Projectile Capable of Destroying Three Men-of-War. ^ | y HE great guna that threw into I , the air an acre of the Atlantic Ocean last week are perhaps, 6 says the New York Sun, helping another cause than that of war, and doing their involuntary share in moving the world along toward that " ? ?-11? ?I scaie 01 irieuuiy yuiet ui tvmw iw I Peace Congresses believe we should dwell. The knowledge of the power [ for dreadful destructiveness that each new improvement gives causes even I kings to hesitate while the name of war grows more hateful to the pedple. I Improvements in explosives and in small and big arms have done this I much for the peace of the world, and now a quarter of a ton of dynamite THE YAPOB JUST AFTEB THE DISCHABQE. thrown a mile and a half out to sea, and placed with an accuracy that has varied only slightly throughout the tests, has oome to aid in the work of abolishing war. There oomes out of these tests the conclusion for New Yorkers that a hostile ship ia not likely to enter their harbor. If the guns at Sandy Hook were not equal to keeping out a foroiVn t-prbaI. then a hatterv of the jruns I ~-o? > ~ w O stationed at Coney Island and at Rockawav could add strength that should prove invincible. The owners and promoters of the new guns maintain that one of the projectiles is capable of destroying three men-of-war. Seven years ago on experiment in the lower bay gave a measured indication of the dfestruotiveness of one of these projectiles when it was discharged at a vessel. An old wooden schooner which had been used in the coast survey was anchored about 1864 yards from Fort Lafayette. An eight-inch pneumatic gun was mounted and loaded with a projectile containing fifty-five pounds of nitro-gelatine, which is somewhat more than onetenth of the strength of the projectiles used in the tests last week- The gun, moreover, had not been brought to its present state of completion, although these experiments attracted publio attention to the use of dynamite. The schooner was ninety feet long and was anchored bows on. The first shot from the gun at Fort Lafayette fell short, and the second exploded about ten' yards from the vessel, broke off the mainmast and blew up a port of the deck. The third projectile ex piUUCU UUUC& fiiQ OWUVUUWi (UiU her out of the water. She seemed to riso slowly into the air and then broke into two parts directly * amidships. Two more projectiles completed her demolition and left only a mass of floating wreckage. This was the result of the experiments made when the gun was incomplete, and the explosive in the projectile only a small proportion of the amount used now. But it indicated something of what might be expected waen one of these projectiles and a vessel should come into close quarters. The news comes from Washington that the results obtained by these last tests, and more especially, the great accuracy with which projectiles have been placed, have attracted the admiration of the ordnance experts in both services. The believe that the success of the gun wiU lead to its adoption for purposes of coast defence, and ther protection ci those coastwise cities for which the Fortification Board has recommended a gen 1 --1- i J-f jjvuuj til ueieuue utuaunb from foreign fleets. The army ordnance officers believe that these tests have proved beyond doubt the dynamite gun will be a most significant factor in the harbor defence of our cities, and that, however strong fortifications may be, they will not prove completely adequate without one of these guns. There was for several years in Washington a prejudice against the gun among naval experts, and the failure of the guns on the dynamite cruiser Vesuvius to work satisfactorily in the exhaustive tests which have been given since the cruiser has been completed has increased the lack of confidence in them. The army has always contended that one of these guns, scientifically manipulated, was capable of greater destructive power than three of the heaviest pieces of ordnance manufactured for coast defense. General Flagler, Chief of Ordnance of the Army, has maintained that while there was great development yet to De secured. in pertectmg tne dynamite gun, sufficient progress had already been made to guarantee its adoption with other ordnance in the protection 01 great cities. Captain Sampson, Chief of the Ordnance Bureau of the Navy, has always been in some doubt as to the expediency of adopting tho gun for use in the navy, but ho believes that the disadvantages which have been encountered, mounting one of the gun3 on a war ship, can be rzz FULL CAIiECKE PBOJECTILE. ^ readily removed with a stationary platform on shore, anil that r.ll the difficulties which prevent its effective use can readily be reduced to a minimum. The recent results obtained nt Sandv Hook are regarded bv crd nance oOcers here as indicating that the use of dynamite in modern warfare has become practically indiepsnsablo to the proper protection of harbors, and they now admit that whatever doubt was formerly held as to the impossibility of securing range and accuracy has been removed by the apparent facility with which tho projectiles were discharged by the fifteen-inch gun last week. The navy was the first to take up the question of using dynamite expelled from tubes by compressed air for the destruction of a ship. Early in 1886 the department ordered the construction of a vessel which was to be fitted with three dynamite tubes mounted forward stationary and aimed by the ship's rudder. The vessel was to have great speed, and it was believed that she would "revolutionize warfare." A favorable report on the system had been made by the Pneumatio Gun Board, and the vessel was built by the Cramps at a cost of nearly $400,000. The firet trial with the guns occurred in 1889. Three shots were fired for range, and fifteen for endurance. The report of the Board says that no attempt wa3 made to eecure acoaracy of practice. The trials being simply to meet the contract requirements as to the rapidity,of fire, and the capacity of the system to main tain that rapidity for a given time. After considering the report, the department ordered a second trial, the projectile to be used being a sub-calibre containing a 204-pound charge of gun cotton and fitted with mechanioal fuses. The result showed that a shell containing 200 pounds of gun ootton or other high explosive could be thrown at least one mile by each of the dynamite guns constituting the vessel's armament After considering maturely all the tests on the Vesuvius, the Chief of Ordnanco reports on the value of dynamite guns on war ships as follows: "Each time the conclusion has been more or less favorable. Each report, however, ha9 stated that the accuracy of the guns leaves much to be desired. It is manifest that the accuraoy of a gun is its most important quality, and without a satisfactory degree of ac curacy all other advantages are 01 minor importance. The difficulty in the pneumatio guns appears to centre in the main valve whioh admits the air to the gun. At all ranges except tbe maximum the successful working of the gun demands that this valve should open and olose in an exceedingly short time, probably a smal I j SIDE VIEW OF THE B fraction of a second. The difficulties encountered in accomplishing this have not been overcome. The department has already expended $30,000 upon experiments with these guns without any decided improvement. Without entering further, at this time, into the merits of the system, the bureau recommends that further experiments be deferred until after the installation at Sandy Hook of the fifteen-inch guns now in course of construction for the War Department. In these guns IJLltf CUlUJJtUljT piumujco W v/fCivwing the difficulties which exist in those of the Vesuvius." Next to the interest that attaches to this establishment of the effectiveness of dynamite as an ammunition, probably as interesting a lessoil of the recent tests is to be drawn from the use i of compressed air in the guns. The officers say that for many reasons it would be impossible to use powder. ; Perhaps the most important is that it i would detonate so sensitive an explo- < sive as dynamite. The 36,000 pounds pressure to the superficial inch, which ; is about the average force of powder, : would cause the projeotile to explode j before it left the gun. Another necessity whioh renders the iue of powder impossible is the importance of keeping the gan cool. Powder would heat it to such an extent that the dynamite would explode. As it is, the pneumatic gun is made cooler by every introduction of compressed air. If powder ^ere used the shell of the projectile would have to be very much heavier than it is now, ana there would be less space for the explosive. The largest projectile now weighs 1120 pounds, and about forty-five per cent. nf fV>in wAiorhf. is in the exnloaive. which in these large projeotilea weighs 500 pounds. The projectile must, moreover, be expelled at a uniform rate. The first shock of the explosion of powder, diminishing until its force oeases, would cause the projectile to explode, while an explosion is prevented by the unvarying pressure of compressed air, which maintains the same rate ?about 1000 to the inch?throughout the gun. Another reason given by the company for the use of compressed air ie that the force of powder is likely to be variable. It is not always uniform, and for that reason greater accuracy is obtained by the use of compressed air, which they say they can be certain will always produce an exaot result. In addition to these advantages, as the oompany regards them, there is, of course, no dirt or smoke or necessity for scrubbing out the gun after it has been used. The idea of using compressed air as* a substitute for powder is said to have originated with a Toledo mechanic named Meffort, who had made a study of explosives. The pneumatio gun of to-day is said to nave developed from an idea suggested to Meffort by arrangement of a piece of gas pipe and roughly made dynamite torpedo. He succeeded in throwing his projectile by means of an improvished mortar, but could not mako it explode more than once or twice in a half dozen efforts. This wa3 due to the faot that his fuses were not adequate. Since that tini3 Meflfort's idea has been improved upon from timo to time until the present, gun was devised, and members of the company say that the latest tests hnvo suggested possible improvements in the details of the gun. The gun and carriage veigh in the aggregate fifty-two tons, but the gun can be moved by the turn of a wheel or aimed in any direction. A teloscope stands by the gun, and through this the gunner plaoes ais aim. The gun is moved by electricity. The compressed air is conveyed from thfl engine rooms by means of pipes to wrought iron and steel reservoirs, (vhich are in chambers under tlie gun . ' '' ' *v ' , > \ X diameter and weighs twenty pounds, To the end of it is attached a brass case, containing a priming charge of 2$ pounds of dry gun cotton. About thirty-seven grains of fulminate of mercury are used to explode the gun ootton. All of the more important parts of the fuse are in duplicate, in order to insure certainty of action. The hammers are locked until the projectile is well out of the muzzle ot the gun, when they are automatically unlocked. The fuses may be set to explode the instant the projectile strikes the water, or two or three seconds later. The projectile flies through the air always in view until it strikes the water. Tons of water burst into the air and then settle down into great stretches of white foam. The force of the shots is felt at Sandy Hook, and one on Friday was distinctly noticeable at Atlantic Highlands, four miles from the spot where the projectile exploded.

From these reservoirs the a-r is conducted by means of large pipes np through the carriage to the THE PBOTECTELE STABTS 02J ITS "WAT. trunnions, and from the trunnions through a large casing surrounding the barrel to the breech. Rotary joints are provided in this pipe at the pintle and at the trunnions, whioh allow the gun to be moved with freedom without breaking the continuity of the pipes and allowing any escape of air. A large valve near the breech controls the admission of air into the barreL The opening and olosira of this valve are automatio and completely under the control of the gunner. A feature of the pneumatio system is- the ability of the gunner to ohange the range without changing the elevation of the gun by controlling the amount of compressed air that escapes at each discharge. When the discharging lever is pulled the large valve at the breeoh opens and remains open o sufficient time to allow a cer tain quantity ol air to escape into tne barrel; then the valve closes before the projectile leaves the muzzle, cutting off the escape of the air and retaining in the reservoir all that was not needed in propelling the projeotile. The length of time the valve remains open ; is under control of the gunner, and byregulating the amount of air that enters the barrel he ragulates the energv imparted to the projectile, and so can change his range without changing the elevation of the gun. 10 PNEUMATIC GtJJT. The system of keeping the reservoir always Btocked with compressed air is a simple one. At each discharge of the gun the air pressure in the reservoir falls according to the adjustment of the valve. If the standard pressure in the reservoir is 1000 pounds to the square inch, one shot may reduce this pressure to 900 or 850 pounds, or any pressure not usually less than 800 pounds. By drawing from a storage reservoir beside the engine rooms, which contains air at a pressure of more than 1000 pounds to the square inch, the pressure in the gun reservoir may be speedily restored. This is, in brief, the compressed air system whioh the company UBes. The Bystem of loading the gun haB been arranged so that there is no dan* M n m .. it ? l ger to do xeazea xrom cue rapid nanaling of the projectiles. The projootiles are brought from the magazines in trays, which are ran onto a loading, carriage. This carriage runs on a circular track around the gun and brings the projectile into position for loading. A windlass is rued lor foroing the projectile into the bore of the gun. It requires four men to load the gun with a nub-calibre projeotilo, while the' full oalibre projectiles, which weigh as much as 1120 pounds, require six men. The company's managers say they have novor had an accident. Captain Rapieff, the designer of the gun tested as recently, says that the projectiles can easily be thrown upon the deck of a vessel. There are two kinds of projectiles used in the gun? one, termed a full calibre, fits the bore closoly; the other, a sub-calibre, is considerably smaller than the bore, and is made to fit snugly at the ends by a syBtem of oiroular blocks, which aro loose and which fall into the water a few hundred f6et from the month of . THE PBOJECTILE IN THE AIR. the gun after the discharge. All of J the projeotiles have ogival heads and long bodies. The gun being a smooth bore, rotation is given to the torpedoes as they move through the air by means of spiral vanes, something on the plan of a ship's propeller, which are attached to the rear. The fullcalibre projectile is eleven feet in length and has a capacity for 5<JU pounds of high explosive. The point is made of bronze and the body of steel three-sixteenth of an inoh in thickness. The explosive charge is divided into two parts by a diaphragm across the interior of the projectile, about at its middle, the object being to distribute equally the strain caused by the setting back of the charge at the instant of discharge, thus causing less shock to tho explosive. The fuse which causes the explosion is situated in the point of the projectile, where it is inserted just before tho loading. The range of this projectile is 2G00 yards. Two sizes of sub-calibre projectiles are used; one ten inches in diameter, which carries a charge of 200 pounds of high explosive and has a range of more than 4000 yards, and the other eight inches in diameter, carrying 100 pounds of dynamite and having a range of 5200 yards. The fuse used in this projectile is somewhat more than twelve inches long and 3J inches in Captain J.
