Cromwell Wrong
Oliver Cromwell, British states
man and military genius, was wrong
when he told his cavalry at the Bat
tle of Edgehill three centuries ago
to “keep your powder dry,” accord
ing to bureau of mines chemists. A
bit of moisture in the powder of his
guns would have made the weapons
more reliable. Black powder, used
now in mining and by the armed
forces—and often containing the
same ingredients as the powder used
in Cromwell’s time actually is
more sensitive and ignites more
quickly when it contains a small
amount of moisture. This is shown
in a new technical report of the bu
reau released recently.

Popess is placed about the year 1100.
The story goes that a very talented
woman dressed as a rrian became
notary to the Curta, then Cardinal
and finally Pope. Another chron
icler, Martin of Troppau, wrote that
after Leo IV (847-855) the English
man. John of Mainz, occupied the
papal chair for two years, seven
months and four days. He was, it
is alleged, a woman. However, the
legend has been discarded by church
authorities as a pure figment of the
imagination.
