Cracker
zP.
TIM exploilon that wound up the
Fourth of July Celebration
f5/ on Cooney Itl&nd.
Two mammoth firecrackers stood in
the window of Casey's grocery. They
were 12 inches long and proportion
ately thick.
For a month before the Fourth of
July these gigantic indicators of en
thusiasm had stood in the window like
British soldiers on dress parade, while
a predatory spider hung a filmy ham
mock between them and calmly killed
his buzzing victims over two powder
mines.
The firecrackers were the admira
tion and the envy of all the boys in
Cooney Ufand. It was seldom that a
youthful nose was not flattened against
the window pane (ri ardent covetou3
ness.
But the price demanded by Casey
for the thnnderers was prohibitive, so
far as the boys were concerned,-and
there was not one of them patriotic or
courageous enough to invest 25 cents
in a single ecstatic explosion.
Said Mickey Finn timidly one even
ing when he had been sent by his
mother to get a quarter of a pound of
tea and halt a pound of pork:
'Mr. Casey, I suppose now, that
whin wan o' thim.big fellows wlnt oft
it would blow the stars out of the
mm,f-
In Ardent Covetousne6s.' '/w t,'
iday and remain a loss on his hands.
In order to deepen the impression al
ready made upon the boy Casey per
mitted him to handle one of the twins.
The boy's eyes had widened to
their utmost capacity when he was
outside the window, but no* that he
could feel the red jacket his hand3
trembled with the eagerness of pos
session and he would have given ten
years of his life to own it.
"Take It along wid you, Mickey,"
said Casey, cajolingly. "Thlm crack
ers were made in Chow Chow, in
China, for the Cooney Island trade,
and I want to get rid of thim I have
on hand before I send another Order
to Wan Lung, the haythln."
"But I have no money," said Mick
ey sorrowfully. "My father is goin' to
give me three bunches of little fire
crackers and a plnwheel, but I know
he wouldn't buy wen o' thlm big fire
crackers for me."
"Well," continued Casey, "you come
down here to-morrow mornin' and
carry in a half ton of coal for me and
I'll give you the big cracker."
The next morning Mickey was busy
for two hours carrying chestnut coal
In a nail keg and dumping It in Casey's
cellar. Just after noon, with a smile
covered with coal dust and a bosom
full of chuckles, he received his prize.
1
sky?" hiB mind filled with blissful
thoughts of mighty explosions.
Casey stopped measuring out a half
pint of New Orleans molasses, raised
a monitor finger, and replied:
"Micky, my boy, I'd be afeerd to tell
you what would happen if I stood wan.
o' thlm big fellows out on the side
walk and'touched t^g stem wid the
lighted end of a five cent clga-ar. The
noise would be terrible, terrible, my
son. 'Twould make your head ring
like an anvil,'- and you would see
sparks like fireflies.
"Would it blow .the house down?"
asked the boy in an awed whisper.
"No, I don't think It. would," said
Casey. "It might shalce the chlmly
down and break all the glass in the
windys in small pieces, and there
would be paper in the streets as
would fill an impty barrel o' flour. Oh,
but thlm big fellows is mighty power
ful, "Micky, mighty powerful. They
use them in China to kill murderers
and robbers. They put wan o' thlm
big firecrackers bechune the teeth of
a murderer and make him light the
fuse wid his own hand' and blow his
own head oft. Thlm Chinese is mighty
crool, Mickey, mighty crool."
This vivid description inflamed Mick
ey's desire, which was Casey's motive
In telling it, for the incident occurred
on the eve of the Fourth, and Casey
was afraid that "the big firecrackers
would be carried over the national hol-
No grass grew under his bare feet
as he ran homeward, the precious
powder 'mine clasped to his bosom.
Holding the big fireoracker aloft as
he darted through the kitchen door,
he exclaimed:
"Mother,1 I have it! Ain't it a
beauty?"
"Well, I don't see any thing-about ft
to be makln' a fuss ovef," said Mrs.
Finn, who, like most mothers, had
no love for fireworks. "Now, don't be
brlngin' it nearer to me, as Mickey,
ran toward her. "I don't want to be
blown Into the middle o' next week.
Throw the dirty thing away! I'm
afeered o' me life while you have it In
your hands 1 Now, don't be goin' near
the stove wid it! Arrah, ye little
spalpeen, will ye take It oft the stove?
Take it oft afore ye blow the roof off
the house!" and the frightened woman
•ran into the bedroom and peered
throughthe keyhole.
With "the recklessness of boyhood,
Mickey exclaimed, as he lit a match
and reduced his mother to hysterics
by pretending to light the firecracker
stem:
"You needn't be afeered, mother. I'll
nip it out afore it goes off."

of the Fourth passed away in thg Finn
household varied by the boy with oc
caslonal visits tp the neighbors, whom
he threw into a panic of fear by pre
tending to light the big explosive.
Mrs. Murphy and her three children
were gathered around the kitchen
table when Mickey placed the lighted
mammoth in the middle of the table,
Two of the boys went head first
through the window, while Mrs. Mur
phy tried to crawl under the kitchen
stove.
All this excitement afforded the boy
a good deal of delight, but he re
served for the evening the culmina
tion of his joy. He intended to blow
his father up as he sat in his chair on
the back stoop.
The genuine Kinesfonl's Oswego Corn Starch—

stand* alone for purity, wholesomenesa and re
fined delicacy.
Mickey thought it would be an in
spiring sight, to witness his father fly
ing across the back yard and plow
ing up the ground with his nose. In
order that he might have an audience
appropriate to so great an occasion,
Mickey had spread the news among
all the boys of the neighborhood, and
at nine o'clock 50 boys sat on the
fence surrounding the back yard. Mr.
Finn, tired of the excitement of the
day, had fallen asleep in hi$ rocking
chair on the back stoop, when Mickey
lit the stem of the big cracker and
placed it carefully under his father'
chair.
The moon shone brightly, illuminat
ing the grin on every boyish face.
Every ear was strained to catch the
faint^hissing of the fuse and every eye
intent upon the sleeping man.
The fuse burned itself out, and the
silence and suspense was deepening.
A minute passed dnd another, until
Mickey could stand the strain no long
er. He reached down and lifted the
firecracker from beneath the cha,ir.
As he held it up in the moonlight
to examine it, a mosquito lit upon his
father's nose and the old gentleman
awoke Grabbing the flrecrack.er from
his son's hand he arose and holding it
aloft, he said:
"Boys, there will be no explosion

I was afeered that Mickey might do

is over, and ye may as well go home

SKY ROCKET PHILOSOPHY.
The boy who was burned last.year
•lias a short memory.
It is estimated that there are 80,
000,000 horses in the world. This is a
flood day to leave the skittish ones In
the bara.
The poet who wrote, "If you're wak
ing call me earlylived in a country
where they didn't celebrate the Glori
ous.
If there is one particular thing that
boy doesn't want to be on the Fourth
of July it is a girl.
Wouldn't an old-fashioned celebra
tion leave ft good taste in the mouth?
Throw the ear trumpet away you
will not need it to-morrow,"
We hava forgiven the British long
ago for licking them.
We should pause for moment in
our frenzied celebrations ai\d[ solemnly
reflect on the gre$i truth fhat Christ
mas is coming. "i
Only those over nine arei sorry that
Fourth of „July comes but once a year.
In fact, for them it comes-all week,
but they are kicking because It
doesn't last until the night before
Christmas. Thei small boy knows that
the Fourth of July was made for him
and that he was madefor the Fourth
of July and he is satisfied that he and
this Fourth are mates. He hasn't for
gotten how\ we licked the British, al
though the recollection of that great
scrap may be hazy with some of the
people who have money enough, to pay
a week's board in London.
FOURTH OF JULY DON'TSI
Don't allow the children to bend
ever fireworks which will not "go off."
They sometimes do it- unexpectedly
with unfortunate results, to the little
meddler..
Don't neglect to send for a physl-"
clan at once in the case of a serious
burn, to prevent a possible scar or
worse still, blood poisoning, from ig
norant or improper treatment of the
wound. ...
#v-:-
V--..'''.
Don't forget to have some remedies
for burns at hand. When the skin
is not broken by a burn scrape a raw
potato, place on a piece of soft linen
and use as a poultice. Bicarbonate of
soda—the ordinary baking soda—is ex
cellent" for burns whether the skin'
is broken or not. If broken apply the
dry soda, If unbroken dampen the soda
with water to make a paste and apply
to the spot. The pain will be InBtant
ly Relieved.
Facti About Firecrackers. „v'%
The greater part of the almost
$2,000,000 worth of firecrackers annu
ally exported by China comes to New
York. And the United States stand
next to China in its use of them.-
Thousands of Chinese men, women
and children work at the making of
firecrackers, for there are no manu
factories there, the work being done
by hand. They receive only about
$1.40 for making 10,000 firecrackers,
laboring from six. in the morning until
11 at night seven days a week.
So a Chinese woman *r child works
like a slave for two days to earn what
Is spent on a few bunches of firecrack
ers by the urchin bent on doing jus
tice to the Glorious Fourth.

ONE GIANT CRACKER
TO CONTAIN 187,500 POUNDS
GUN POWDER.
OP
This la What It Would Be If All the
-Little Crackers of One Fourth
Were Put Together In
One Tube.
There are—to be exact—13,048,637
boys between the ages of four and 20
years In the United States who are go
ing to celebrate the Glorious Fourth.
And this takeB no account whatever
of the old boys, between the ages of
20 and 80, with a few verging on the
edge of 90 for good measure. These
boys are going to celebrate in the
good old-fashioned way with firecrack
ers and toy pistdls and cannons and
skyrockets and nigger-chasers. They
are going to make a lot of noise and
a. good many boys are going to get
their fingers and thumbs blown-off
and their faces, filled with gunpowder
and their ears trimmed. But that
doesn't make any difference they are
going to celebrate nevertheless. Now,
there is no'iise dragging out statistics
to show how- many boys were killed
and maimed and sent to the hospital
last Fourth of July. You will waste
your ink in writing down the figures
and your breath in talking about them,
bjit you will hot stop the small boy,
nor the big boy, nor the middle-aged'
boy, nor the old boy from celebrating.
All your arguments will have no
avail.
Suppose all the firecrackers that
will be fired off could be concentrated
into one colossal firecracker and that
all the boys la the United States could
be assembled around It and that at a
given moment It could be fired off,
winding tip the whole business of a
Fourth-of-July celebration at one fell
swoop. Jfhere would be one mighty
shock to the nerves of nervous 'old
women and shaky old men. There
would be one big sizz and one big
bang ttet would, be heard all the way
around the world, and then all would
be over everybody would, have cele
brated the' same amount of money
would have been spent and quiet and
peaoe would be resumed. Now, let's
see how it can be figured out
First of all, one must ascertain how
many firecrackers there are in the
United States. One of the largest
dealers says there 'are now 160,000,000
firecrackers in this country waiting to
be exploded- on the Fourth of July.
Another large dealer Bays this esti
mate is too'high and places the num
ber at 20,000,000. Wlien- one consid
ers, however, that there are more than
13,000,000 boys in the country and that
the first estimate allows somethin
less than eight firecrackers for eac!
boy, one muBt admit that the figures
are, perhaps", not so far out of the way.
But one of the chief alms of this ar
ticle is conservatism, and, therefore, a
compromise position will be taken and
the average of two estimates will be
used, which places the number of fire
crackers at 60,000,000.
Next, let us see how much gunpow
der tliere is in these 60,000,004 fire
crackers. The best authorities on -this
subject say that in the average fire
cracker there Is one-twentieth of an
once of gunpowder.- This calculation
Is based on the number-of "lady-fire
crackers,"-which are the smallest, on
up to the big cannon crackers, includ
ing the tremendous "Hunt" and Num
ber 18, which contains two ounces ot
explosives. With this good start it is
simply a matter of mathematics to
learn that in all the firecrackers of the
United States there are 8,000,000
ounces ot gunpowder, which, of course,
means 187,600 pounds. This, has all
been easy. There is your firecracker.
All you have to do is to get your boys
together, apply the match to the fuse,
wait a second with bated breath and
then—
But hold on! How about the dam
age?
For many years there have been
learned discissions concerning the
force of various grades of explosives.
The experts call it potential energy.
Some time- ago two famous French
men—Roux and Sarrau—made a se
ries of experiments to determine the
exact extent of the potential energy
of the most powerful explosives and
the results of these experiments have
become the standards of the best in
formed experts on this subject. It
was learned from. these studies that
the average -potential energy of gun
powder Is 480 foot-tons, to the potind.
You will observe, therefore, that there
w«uld be a good deal of "business"
concentrated in a gigantic firecracker
containing 187,500 pounds of gunpow
der. & this immense cracker there
would be stored 90,000,000 foot-tons of
potential energy. Startling as are
these figures, to the layman they mean
little. Let us compare them to some
.object with which we are familiar.
Take the Flatiron building-in New
York, for instance. -Its weight is 50,
000 tons. Now, if there are 480- fotit
tpns of potential energy in each pound
of gunpowder, it would require 104
^pounds of gunpowder to blow up a
building weighing 50,000 tons. This
amount of gunpowder, Is scientifically
applied, would do the job completely
and raze the big structure from base
ment to roof. Such an explosive effort
as this, however, represents, but a
Bmall part of the force in the Supposi
tional king of giant firecrackers, which
would contain 90,000,000 foot-tons of
energy—enough to blow up (according
to exact mathematical -calculation)
1,800 structures, similar to the Fiati'ron
building before you could say "Jack
Robifison!"
So, perhaps, after all, It may be as
well to postpone the btillding of this
c/reat universal firecracker until our
experts have learned .a little better'
how to handle high explosives.
