GUN COTTON BASIS OF SILK
French Inventor, After Long Study,
Hat Evolved a Truly Wonderful^
According to Count Hllalre, Inventor
of artificial silk, which Is now pro
duced by vast factories In Switzerland,
Belgium, France, England anjl the
United States, It has for Its basis noth
ing less than gun cotton. One of the
greatest problems he had to^solve In
perfecting It for everyday use was to
render it nonexploslve.
The gun cotton under the chardon
net process Is first dissolved In a mix
ture of alcohol and ether and then
spun through fine capillary tubes by
means of hydraulic presses.
Other chemical processes give it in
combustible and nonexploslve quali
ties, together with the cvsistency and
the transparency of the finest silk from
Japan or China.
It took just 30 years of the 80 which
Count Hllalre has completed to per
fect his discovery and render It of act
ual and practical commercial value.
The illustrious chemist and scientist
has just been elected to the supreme
honor of membership In the French
Academy of Sciences for his discovery
of how to put one over on the gllk
worms. During the war he had been
decorated by the French minister of
war with the Cross of a Chevalier of
the Legion of Honor for discoveries
relative to the manufacture of high ex
plosives growing out of his researches
made primarily to render artificial silk

The woman who declares she would

Nowadays the up-to-date miner car
ries a package of electricity about with

storage battery attached to the back
of his belt, and is connected by a cord
with a lamp fastened to the front of
The lamp, provided with a reflector,
throws quite a flood of light in front
ef the miner. But its chief advantage
is absolute safety.
In olden days miners (who must, of
course, have light) carried about with
them open-flame lamps. These caused
Innumerable disastrous accidents
through ignition of coal dust or gases.
Sir Humphry Davy's invention of a
safety lamp whose flame was protected
by a wire gauze saved an immense
number of lives. It is in common use
today, but the electric mine' lamp Is
better and more convenient.

It required five years to develop a plant that would
measure up to these specifications.
There were five years of hard engineering effort back of
DELCO-LIGHT before the first plant was put on the
market three and a half years ago.
Today DELCO-LIGHT is furnishing the conveniences
and comforts of electricity to more than Seventy-five
Thousand farm homes.
It is providing an abundance of clean, bright, econom

and other small machinery.
And everywhere it is demonstrating its wonderful efficien
