    What Dynamite is and How it is Made.Few people know what Dynamite is, though the word is in common use. It is

    a giant gun powder, that is an explosive material, varying in strength and safety ofhandling, according to the percentage of nitro-glycerine it contains. Nitro-glyce-rine, whence it derives its strength, is composed of ordinary glycerine and nitric acid,compounded together in certain proportions and at a certain temperature. Nitro-glycerine, though not the strongest explosive known, being exceeded in power bynitrogen and other products of chemistry, is thus far the most terrible explosivemanufactured to any extent. Nitro-glycerine by itself is not safe to handle, hencedynamite is preferred. It is extensively made and consumed in the United Statesunder various names of Giant, Hercules, Jupiter and Atlas powders, all of whichcontain anywhere from thirty to eighty per cent, of nitro-glycerine, the residue ofthe compound being made up of rotten stone, non-explosive earth, sawdust, char-coal, plaster of Paris, black powder, or some ether substance that takes up theglycerine and makes a porous spongy mass.

    Nitro-glycerine was discovered by Salvero, an Italian chemist, in 1845. Dyna-mite is prepared by simply kneading with the naked hands twenty-five percent, ofinfusorial earth and seventy-five per cent, of nitro-glycerine until the mixture as-sumes a putty condition, not unlike moist brown sugar. Before mixing the infusorialearth is calcined in a furnace, in order to burn out all organic matter, and it is alsosifted 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 fulminate of silverin copper capsules provided with patent exploders.Nnro-glycerine is made of nitric acid one part and sulphuric acid two parts, towhich is added ordinary glycerine, and the mixture is well washed with pure water.The infusion is composed cf small microscopic silicious shells, which have lost theirliving creatures. The cellular parts receive the nitro-glycerine and hold it bycapillary attraction, both inside and out. The earth is very light. Water is expelledfrom it by means of a furnace, and then, in the form of a powder, it is mixed withnitro-glycerine. Nitro-glycerine has a sweet aromatic pungent taste and the pecu-liar property of causing a violent headache when placed in a small quantity on thetongue or wrist. It freezes at 40 degrees Fahrenheit, becoming a white, half crys-talized mass, which must be melted by the application of water to a temperatureabout 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

    education to ascertain the day of the week upon which any day of the month inthis century fell or will fall on :

    To the given year, rejecting the century, add its fourth part, rejecting the fraction.To this sum adcTthe day of the month and the ratio for the given month, as pertable below. Divide the sum by seven, and the remainder (not the quotient) willbe the day of the week, counting Sunday as the first day :
