DBS' MOINES. Iowa, Jan. 6.— Modern' science brought crlmo 'detection 1 "- one step closer to the crtmlnaj with announcement by Major Park'A. Plndley, former. Polk .county sheriff, tha't - ho ,, hag -discovered • a . method whereby. It may be determined absolutely' whether or .not a ( person \hus fired a gun .within the last five hours. After several weeks of experimentation, 'Flndloy announced that -he had made co.n'dluslve' testa before authoH L tative' witnesses. ''..'' His method is .this: The hand of e^ .suspect is coated with melted paraffin which is allowed to .harden and then •scraped, off into a' dish. A , prepared solution of sulphuric acid and phenylamlne is then added to the -paraffin. If tho solution turns a bluish color, the suspect has fired a gun. within the previous flvo'houra, according to Major Findley. The color Is formed by tho solution coming In contact with a nitrate. Gunpowder contains potassium nitrate which forms a nitrous oxide _gas. when the powder rexplodes. -The 1 pbros-oi the hand absorb the gas, which In turn clings to the paraffin. . .- ' Three Boys Drown While Saving Child {Amoofated I'rem Lcated Wire) ADDISON, Vt,, Jan. 6.— Three boys were drowned In Dead creek yesterday, after they had pushed to safety a 10-year-old "girl who had broken through thin' ice while skating.
