Nitroglycerin and its peculiarities  are littlo known, even in l__alltio_  whoro it is mado. People, generally  give it a. wide'berth, and ovon a less  number know how it is manufactured. Probably in no place in the  United States is thero such a great  amount of tho explosive used ns in  the Indiana oilfields, says 'i'he Philadelphia, Press. Indiana has four nitroglycerin factories, and seldom visited hy curious people. ���������  The' explosive is mado from a composition of acids and glycerin. It' is  generally pale yellow in color, and  quite colorless when pure. It is odor-  lessj-nnd has a sweet, pungent, aromatic flavor. If touched by one's  'toiiKue. or oven brought into contact  with tho skin, il will produce a. severe hcn.dn.cho. A largo tank, called  an agitator, is whoro thc fluid is  mixed, and tho mixture is composed  of i.T|iinl parts of nitric and sulphuric  acids. Tnsida tho tank aro several  paddles, like those of a churn, and  it is hero that tho real danger exists.  Tho paddles aro put In operation and  a steady stream of sweet glycerin ia  turncd inlo a vat until 1250 pound-  are thoroughly mixed with tho l'.SOO  pounds of acid. Tho chemicals coming in contact produce an intense  heat, and in- order to obyiato the  danger cold water is run through  pipes encircling and running through  the vat. At 85 degroes F. a red vapor, almost like fire, arises. If cutting ort thc supply of glycerin in the  agitator does not lower the temperature, it is time to say farewell. Before no degrees are-reached nothing  but atoms of the structure and its  contents are left.  Colonel William A. Meyers, of Bolivar, N.Y., was the man who mado  and exploded the first round of nitroglycerin in an oil well. Ho built tho  first factory in. tho I-iuted States,  near Titusvillo, Ta., in 1808. Up to  that time powder had been used to  torpedo oil wells. It was then that  an explosive that could be discharged  under water was found in" nitroglycerin.' , Colonel Myers' father was a  Philadelphia chemist and taught his  son how to make it.  The first well torpedoed was on  Coloiii-1 Mills' lease, near Titusville,  and the dharge consisted of on,y two  and thc charge consisted of only two  pounds. Oil was worth 89 a barrel  then, and a torpedo that would  double the production of a well was  worth almost what thc maker chose  to ask' for it. Colonel Myers built  12 different factories in different  parts of the oil regions from 1SGS to  1885,-when he retired from tho busi-  ni.'SH. Only one of the original factories stands intact to-day. Myers  made several fortunes and spent his  money like a prince, hut, fortunately  for him, he still has a snug stun laid  by. ���������       *'       .,.���������.'���������       .   -  -f.^-.fa^f.-f.,f-jf^-^ff-Bf-^.

Since then, however, relief has come  from the moat unexpected quarters.  The situation    has* been,  distinctly  ���������cloared*  and   the.  country,   has now  ground   to   hope   that . the   cabinet  ��������� moans to act, not talk, and is thinking of the work ahead rather than ot  self exculpation.  Thanks ili-stly to Mr. Wyndham,  the.under secretary ot state' tor war,  then to Goschon, first lord o������ tho admiralty, much ot the gloom has been  dispelled nnd the- nation ia made to  ���������'feel.'.:', comfortable on the essential  ,_l-t, now that the deficiencies ot organization have been fully recognized  and that the government has determined to remedy them.  The redeeming feature of the debate in parliament has been the  epeech of Mr. Wyndham on the work  ot the war office.  Ho has ralBed his reputation greatly and haB brought himself Into the  rout place sb a minister who has a  great fuUire.  He has not spoken as a dreamy  tatalist like Mr. Balfour, willing to  hSalevc that' whatever is, is * wrong,  hut in duo time it will turn out all  right. Ho has ; not neon apologetic  is. his tone, but told the plain story  of a military organization worthy of  the resources ot this-mighty empire,  by which nearly two hunured thousand men in tho course of live  months havo been brought Into. tho  hold to Ciilit the Queen's battles.  This single, speech has dispelled the  illusion that the Unionist government  is lacking in administration; eHlcicncy  and has done much to invigorate public opinion.  It is a strong warrant for the belief  that ministers, when the debate is  oT-i' and ������tlie address is .finished, will  produce a series of large measures of  Imperial defence, and will accompany  them by������ the mobilization of the fleet  as a warning that European intervention In South African affairs will  not be tolerated.

Feb. 5.--The war office has  Sir William MacCormack, president  ot the Royal College of Surgeons,  who' volunteered his services for the  South African war, sends an Interesting* account to! the Lancet of his  first experience with wounds inflicted  by tho Mauser bullet. The case.B ho  reports are from the Wynberg* hospital,   near  Capetown.  "I saw a large number of injuries  made  by   Mauser   bullets;  which   aro  -omarkablo   for*   tho   small   external  wound produced.   In three-fourths, if  not oven a- larger proportion, }t was  impossible, to tell the exit from the  entrance wound, they wore so similar in appearance.'  Some were quite  healed,  but .moBt  were slits covered  with an adherent black Bcab slightly  depressed     and   sauc'er-llko,     Doubtless,   somo   contraction,    had     taken  place  in  henling,  but ���������   tho ; size  was ���������  much smaller than the end of a lead  pencil  and -quite  circular.*    A    few  ���������xlt wounds were slits due to slight  deflection of the bullets in their passage.     These   wounds   were ' already  healed   like  an   Incised  wound    and  showed   a  linear   cicatrix    half    an  inch   long.   Probably   most   of   these  Injuries wore inflicted at a rango of  1000  yards,' although - the  men    said  500  was  tho distance  In very  many  Instances   at  which   they   had- been  hit.   One man, a Gordon Highlander,  had his elbow smashed up Into small  pieces.    He  believed  it was, an    explosive bullet; but- it might have been  a Mauser at short range, for he was  hit  at .a-range  of  300  yards.     The.

They   also  fire hollow bullets which*!would have  explosive effects.    The Mauser .bullet  weighs,    I  believe,  about 2.3   grains.  Our.;Lee-Metford  is "a little heavier,  about 2.7 grains, and does not carry  so far by, many hundred yards; while  tho    old , Martini-Henry. , is    nearly  double   it's   weight,- * or*', some    4:0  grains.

J. G. Allen in wards 1 and 2 and A.  McRae in vard 3 have taken charge  of a subscription list to, give each of  the\Revel-lrike contingent a parting  present of cash vs a practical token ot  the esteem in which this place holds  tbe pluck and piitrintisiu of its repr������-  s������ntHtiv,e> in SiMithcnmi's Hoise. .The  ���������pi oceeds-of-tonight __sni<ike_r_in .the  opera house will also be "devoted ' lo  t���������is good object.  Tbe attorney-general is proposing an |  imendmeut to tbe Railway Assessment Act, correcting the very obvious  clerical error, referring to a subsection  which does not exist, ut the same  time thereby confirming tbe contention of tho C. P. R. that no municipalities created since 181)5 have any  power to assess railway lands, held for  any purpose whatsoever, within their  limits. It. is stated that the intention  of this Railway Assessment Act was to  protect railways from municipalities,  which might otherwise be inclined to  put it lead pipe cinch on tlieui. It  seems lo the Herald that railway  companies, having the. saitie legal  protection against unjust assessment  ns any other corporation, are quite  sufficiently protected without giving  them a lead pipe cinch on the municipalities. The attention [of Mr. Kellie  lias already been called to the matter.  But be is monkeying about with his  grandstand play and mountebank  bills regulating the length of hair to  be worn bv underground miners arid  is quite willing that ibis gross piece of  class legislation should be. left on the  statute book. Trying to urge him to  perform his duty to his constituents is  about as encouraging us kicking a  dead mule.  SEE THE-  Acrording to tbe promise given in  the Lieutenant-Governor's speech the  premier has introduced amendments  to the Public Schools Act, which will  have the effect of placing the public  schools in incorporated towns entirely  under the control of the municipalities,  subject nf course to the regulation and  supervision of the council of public  instruction. The salaries of teachers  are to be fixed and paid, buildings to  be leased, erected or enlarged and all  other expenses are to be incurred at  the disci etion of tbe board of school  trustees and borne by tbe municipalities, assisted by a per capita grant  of $20 per annum in cities scheduled  in the third class, such as Revelstoke.  This grant will be calculated on the  average actual daily actendance for  the half year, preceding tbe payments, which will be made quarterly,  Seven trustees are to form the board.

An important amemlinent is also  proposed to the Municipal Elections  Act allowing municipalities, if Ibey  chose to adopt the Imperial automatic  voting machines at elections. An  amendment proposed to the Revenue  Tax Act. will, if adopted, lie of very  general interest. It reduces the provincial poll tax fj-oin four to three  dollars.  Fire in the C.P.R. Oil House  On Tuesday morning about 11 o'clock  repeated calls from the C. Pi R. shops  steam whistle gave an alarm of Hre  to which No. 2 fire brigade promptly  responded. On arriving in the yard it  was found that the fire, which occured  iu tbe oil house, was already extinguished. The. storekeeper had  noticed names coming through tbe  Moor and had , promptly ripped up a  plank and turned on. a babcock extinguisher, which soon smothered the  fire. The fire probably originated in  oil soaked hoards of the floor getting  overheated by the steam pipes, which  run underneath to warm the building.  Had it ever gained any headway at all  tbe result in the storehouse full of  barrels of oil would , have been ' appalling.  War, War, War!!  In all its grim earnestness is in  full swing.
