MAKE PROFIT FROM POULTRY By GARRET SMITH. One of .the most romantic passage* in the secret history of the World War I* the story of how the Ordnance Department of the UnXted ' States Army made It possible -for America, until then utterly lucking .In ammunition and in faculties for making It, to manufacture/unlimited quantities of powerful explosives out of 'air and 'rock. It , was largely the kno-wjedge of this ^act thnt forced Germany to surrender when she did. The secret was aecnred from Germany herself. It wai an open business transaction between business nub, whereby we apparently acquired nothing more military than 'a process for making a high fra'de fertilizer known as cyanamld. . • Prank -Sherman Waanbnrh, head of the froup of business men who bought tlils process, conceived the term of the Idea In the early nineties while la South America as consulting engineer In connection with the production and •hipping of Chilean nitrate of soda. Nitrogen compounds are' an essential part of all commercial. fertilizers. The tn large quantities are in Chile. This supply was diminishing. ' Germany, which Tiad Been taking about one- third of the Chllean'nltrates, was already experimenting with processes for their artificial production.- In 1907 Mr. Woshburn secured in Germany the American rights of the cyanamld process which had been Invented In that country. Turning Air Into a Weapon. By this process air, which is a mixture of about four-fifths nitrogen gas and one-fifth oxygen, IK placed in con talners and subjected to pressure and cold until it turns to ft liquid. Then the nitrogen is distilled In much the same manner as alcohol is separated from water. But before this nitrogen can be used as a fertilizer it must be .combined with a chemical combination of lime and carbon known as calcium, carbide, produced by burning ordinary limestone in big rotary kilns and combining It In the electric furnace with carbon' supplied In the form of ordinary coke.

By an- otliSr process nitric acid Is extracted from another batch of this same sya- namrd. Then the ammonia and nitric acid are combined and there you have ammonium nitrate ready for. packing Into shells with TNT. There are three kinds of explosives used for burstirrg shells In modern warfare — TNT, picric acid and ammonium nitrate. The United 'States was equally deficient in raw^^terlals and 1 plants for raariufacrurlng"'all three of these explosives. Under .the best of conditions the cost of either TNT or nlti'lc acid is about two and one-half the cost of ammonium nitrate. But the United States was- wholly dependent upon Chilean nitrate of soda as .a raw material for ammonium nitrate, with the exception of a small production of nitrogen from the coking of coal. The Chilean supply was 4,500 miles away from New York City by way of the Panama Canal, and the route by way of the Straits of Magel- lan^ls nearly twice as long. A Record Building Operation. Shortly after the war began In Europe the German government entered Into the fixation of -air nitrogen for military explosives on a vast scale. It was not, however, until the fall of 1917 that the' United States government took it up. The Ordnance Department asked Mr. Washburn's company to organize a subsidiary corporation, known as" the Air Nitrates Corporation, with Mr. Washburn as president, to act as ajtent of the government for the Construction and operation of the air nitrates plant at Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
