The effect of thi? maneuver eiecated by the entire line of battle woojd not fail short of the redicoloas. Tne significance, however, of the old expression to illustrate lack of experience in war, "He never smtlt gunpowder." is now t lost with all the rest of the pomp and panolpy cf war, f-jr the ill-smeUmg smokeless ponders that release noxious gisea wlien burning have been discarded. It is ascertained by experiment that the best gmoteless powders are made bj uniting gnn cotton and nitro-glycerine. Tnese sabiitanees enter into the composition of the smokeless powders of every government and of the private experiments. It is also proved thar icsiead of using low grade of these, th« highest explosive apents in the world, the bsst resoles are attained by uniting the highest grades of each. (inn cotton is really cotton fiber soaked in a large f.xieEs'of a mixtureof the strongest nitric and sulphuric acids. Tnis produces the highett grade of gun cotton. When taia is thorougly freed fro u acids it has always proved to be a very stable compound. Tne ordnance .department of the United States navy hai always shown a preferancs for this over any otber high explosive, and their officers have made the very beet quality. Nitro-glycerinp. is made by mixing sulphuric and nitric acid with ordinary sweet glycerine, instead of with cotton fiber as in the manufac'ure of gun cotton. G)y<> erine is described as "a sweet vicid licquid, formed during the Boonification of fatty substances, consisting of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen." The "fatty" substance" usually emplojed in the manufacture of gljcerine is lard—pure, innocent lard, the adipose tissue of the pig. Who would tiiink, when he saw a pig rooting in a field, or even when dead and hung up in a butcher's shop, with his hind feet spread so far apart that his whole body is split wide open, (hat he represented such terrible possibilities of destruction ? Or.e ordinary pig, when his "fatty bubitarc?" has been properly treated with nitric and sulphuric acid, could blow up and entire bloi:k in the'city of New York. Mixing tiiese harmless acids with the tqualiy inoffensive glycerine is what produces the dangerous result, and the process is aleo attended with great peril. The materials are mixed in a large steel tank, called an agitator, in which there are many coils of lead pipe, through which a stream of ice water is kept flowing during the process of mixing. Should the temperature of the mixture happen to rise above 85 degrees P. an explosion would occur. Nitro glycerine is very sensitive, and in order to guard against the shock of a sudden blow or severe concussion, it is kept stored in earthen tanks, which are sunken in the ground Before being delivered into the hands of the public for blasting purposes it is uiu- ally mixed with some.substance, such as wood pulp or fuller's earth, to act as a buffer and take up the concussion. According to tbe different methods of so preparing the crude material, we have the various high explosives of commerce, such at* dynamite, forceite, rack-a rock, rend- rock, etc., tbe strennth of which depends upon the quantity of nitre-glycerine in the compound, the standard of measure being what is called "75 per cent, dynamite"—that is, a mixture containing 75 per cent, of nitre-glycerine to 25 per cent, wood pulp. These compounds will not explode from an ordinary jar and will burn without exploding, but they freeze. 42 degrees Fahrenheit, and very many of tbe fatal explosions that occur among those who are using dynamite cartridges come from an attempt to thaw them in cold weather, or in placing them near a fire to keep them from freezing. Notwithstanding the fact that through the constant use of dynamite, men get careless and dibu,.,ter« goon occur, still we muvfc admit tbut it is a treat agent for the benefit of mankiud. Dynamite and the st*arn drill together have made the upoer part of Manhattan Island available for'all luo purposes of a great city. And ao expert have thoie become who are cons'ant- ly handling the drill and the explosive Maxim, brother of the inventor of the Maxim gun. This eeerns to be absolutely smokeless; its products of combastion are not deleterious or unpleasant; it is perfectly safe to manufacture; it is perfectly stable under ali_conditions of teraperatare or exposart; it is not injured by water; it will neither foul the gan nor corrode the cartridge ca^e; it is sure to ignite, and is attended with very little recoil. This would seem to be the ideal powder, and it probably is, when the proper gun and cartridge are found with which to use it. The difficulty with most of the best unokelesi powders is not in the powder, but in the pun, for the conditions are to different as to require an entire change of arm. In tbe first place, the necessary initial velocity will not be developed unless there is sufficient pressure of projectile and a perfect eaa check is used. Then the velocity is §o high in the gun that a leaden bullet will not take the rifling, but will feaj Giat be esn bom iibe, tbe resali of Ihe csmmoa i _ IB2 nay.

Of American levity and American] joylessnes', the writer of the clever paper that» cellar can be blasted out of ,.„,„ rock right alongside of » building already erected, and in pot much greater " new bullet has to be devised. Col. Buffington, of the ordnance corps United States army, while working in conjunction with Mr. Maxim, at th Springfield Armory, Ma=B., invented i steel covered proj'-ctile filled with lead which he blackened by a niter process t prevent from rustine. There are groove for a lubricant a" the base of the bnlle which prevents tne lead filling from burst ing through th? steel caging "and leaving the latter in the bsrrel, as sometimf s oc curs with the Austrian and French pro jeotiles wh:-n using the smokeless powder This bullet has been improved upon bj Captain PaJiiser, of the British army and his projectile has produced better results than any other that has been tested There is really no such thing as a noiseless powder, tho'ugh of ariy all smokeles powders make a noise that, being at i. much higher pitch and of less volume than when black powder is used, cannot be heard at so great a distanc'i. With *.he noise and smoke of the battlefield eliminated from an engagement, anc nothing left but the deadly weapons o precision at great distance in the hands o expert marksmen, and the still more deadly machine guns pouring a ceaseless torrent of misiils from which there is no possibility of escape b? concealment, war is quite another affair from what it was in ffpodoid days. There will be few survivors of future battlefields, and a consequently shorter pension ro 1, so that the investion of wonderful engines of dpstruc- tion does not make war more terrible; it siroply makes it impossible.
