Dynamite is prepared by simply
kneading with the naked hands
twenty-five per cent of infusorial
earth" and seventy-five per cent of
nitro-glycerino until the mixture as
sumes a putty condition, not unlike
moist brown sugar. Before mixing
the infusorial earth is calcined in a
furnace in order to burn out all or
ganic matter, and it is also sifted to
free it of large grains. While still
moist it is squeezed into cartridges,
which are prepared of parchment
paper, and the firing is done by ful
minate of silver in copper capsules
provided with patent exploders.
Nitro-glycerinc is made of nitric
acid one part and sulphuric acid two
parts, to which is added ordinary
glycerine, and the mixture is well
washed with pure water. The infu
sion is composed of small, micros
codic silicious shells which have lost
their living creatures. The cellular
parts receive tho nitro-glycerine and
hold it by capilliary attraction, both
inside and out. The earth 13 very
light. Water is expelled from it by
means of a furnace, and then in a
form of a powder it is mixed with
nitro-glycenne. Nitro-glycerine has
a sweet, aromatic, pungent taste and
the peculiar property of causing a
violent headache when placed in a
small quantity on tho tongue or wrist.

England has sixty-five square miles
of colony to the square mile of her
own area. The area of the British
colonies is nearly 8,000,000 of square
