At the instant of breaking connection there was a vivid flash, followed by a loud explosion. The cell was completely wrecked, and several persons standing near were thrown backwards and deluged with acid. The heavy iron clamps which secured the top to the sides of the cell were forcibly broken. and the iron handle thrown to the ceiling, breakin;, ' out a section of lath and plaster where it struck. The explosion, of course, was due to the spark caused by breaking tho circuit igniting the uncombined hydrogen and oxygen gases in the cell. The above-mentioned journal says a similar accident occurred in Pittsburgh several years ago, with serious results. In this case the cells were in a box closed with a lid, and the explosion occurred while an examination was being made by the aid of a candle, the flame of which ignited the gases that had accumulated before the lia was raised. Other cases have been noted, and as uncombined gases are always present near the end of a charge, due to the fact of the plates only taking up a portion of the gases released at that time, great care should be exercised in approaching a light or breaking a connection, where the situation is such that the gases may have had an opportunity to accumulate Closed cells, such as are used with phonographs, are particularly liable to this accident. I do not think there can be very much risk from this cause; but perhaps some electricians can say. I never hoard of a case in this country. J. M.

Henry Ernest Dudeney (1857–1930) was an English author and mathematician who specialised in logic puzzles and mathematical games. He is known as one of the country's foremost creators of puzzles. The Canterbury Puzzles and Other Curious Problems is a 1907 mathematical puzzle book by Henry Dudeney. The first part of the book features a series of puzzles based on the characters from The Canterbury Tales by Geoffery Chaucer. The ebook contains illustrations, explanations and answers to each puzzle and is still actual in testing your mathematical skills and your capacity of problem solving.
