French Decide to Abandon Their Use In War. ARE REGARDED DANGEROUS. Extram* Su«c«ptibility of Exploilv* Hat Outweighed Its Wonderful De tonating Qualities — Tra/nandoutly Successful Experiment* Were Mad* With Volatile Agent When It Wa* First Used. Pails.—After a good deal of experi mentation the French army has given up its attempts to uae liquid air as a high explosive In warfare, because of Its extreme susceptibility to detonate from shook. Tremendously successful experiments were made with this volatile agent at flrit, but they were successful only un der perfectly agreeable conditions. For instance, bombs for bombarding aero planes were made with liquid air as the explosive which some Judged to be a hundred times more powerful than bombs of a similar size employ tug picric acid or any of Its proto types. But it was soon learned that the sudden descent or even rapid swooping of an aeroplane carrying liquid air zombs might set off the dan gerous cargo. It happened on one oc casion. An aviator dipped suddenly, and nothing was ever found of him or his machine. Then the bombs were carried over elaborately prepared targets and drop ped from captive balloons. The effect of the explosion was marvelous. In stead of reducing the target to match wood and wreckage, the detonation actually wiped out every vestige of the place where the huge, cumbersome target had been. It was estimated that the concussion of the explosion would have killed any living creature within 130 yards. Shell charged with liquid air can not of course be tired from any pro jectile, the shock of firing would de tonate the explosive and wreck the Attempts have been madp to use liquid Rlr grennilp* and liquid air bombs In trench mortars, which are fired by a spring, much us v catapult's missile Is pivjocted. Dut t!:o extreme "touchiness" of the explosive has out weighed iii wonderful detonating qualities. The Germnns nlso have fail ed to utlltiie liquid air thus far. A TRUE UEORGE WASHINGTON H.

Philadelphia.—George Washington, a United States marine from Kentucky, who does not bid fair to emulate the truth telling record of bis illustrious namesake, marched m-eiidly down Broad street with a newly won sharp shooter's medal pinned to the breast of his uniform. Attracted by the medal, which close ly resembles the Maltese cross worn by some European heroes, an old gen tleman asked him how he bad won it, . and George delivered a picturesque ac count of stirring deeds on shell torn battlefields, while one b.v one the crowd gathered and listened In awe struck silence. "But I say. old chap." interrupted a stranger, "where did all tills happen?" "Oh. somewhere in France," return ed George cheerfully, and the spell binder's HUdluUCe melted away.
