HOW DYJN./.MITE IS .MADE.
Dynamite is one of the many
products or combination of nitro
glycerine, and is about thirteen
times as powerful as gunpowder.
The discovery of this potent and
dangerous explosive was made in
1846, by Ascagne Sobrero, then a
pupil in the laboratory of Pelouze,
the eminent French chemist, who
devoted twenty years of his life to
the investigation of the chemistry
of oils and fats.
Dynamite was patented in the
-United States May 26, 1868, the
patent being granted to Alfred
Nobel, of Hamburg, Germany, as
signor to John Bandmann, of San
Francisco. It consists of a com
bination of nitro-glycerine with a
substance of great absorbent pow
er, such, for instance, as fuller's
earth or rotten stone. By this
-composition the explosiveness of
the nitro-glycerine is controlled,
as it were, and the compound is
capable of withstanding all the
ordinary dangers of transporta
t tion, while at the same time its
' explosive power is not lessened.
e The process of manufacture is
very simple. You take a certain
proportion of nitric and sulphuric
e acid, and mix them with certain
r- other proportions of glycerine,
ef which is the escense of fat, to
d make the nitroglycerine. To
make dynamite you need only to
mix nitro-glycorine with some ab
- sorbent material--foller's earth is
S' the best-to have dynamite.

so that decent peopie can attend

pecially to the ladies, we are very
sorry to say, that our parish is
very unfortunately cursed with a
few, individuals who make its busi
ness to go to places of enjoyment
with the express and sole purpose
of indulging in everything unbe
coming a gentleman or citizen of
a civilized community, cannot a
stop be put to this; we think that
if the necessary steps were taken
these hoodlums would On long be
compelled to keep the peace,
which would be a course of grati
fication to every man, woman and
child, throughout the whole
length and breath of the parish.
Some Maine girls mot and re- g
solved in the followihg pithy and a
pointed style :
"That we receive the attention
of no self-stylcd young gentleman
who has not learned some busi
ness or engaged in some steady
employment, for it is apprehended
that after the bird is caught it
may starve in the cage. h
"That we will promise mar
riages to no young man who is in
the habit of tipping for we are
assured that his wife will come to
want and his children go bare- d
"That we will marry no young c
man if he is not a patron of h i t
neighborhood newspaper, for it is
not only a strong evidence of his
want of intelligence, but that he[
will prove too stingy to provide c
for a family, to educate his chil
dren, or encourage institutions of (
learning in his community."

In a short time the clergyman
was bending over the couch of the

rather the aroma of whis.key.

"that our friend has already hIad

"Yes, he is drunk," calmly re
