As to utlizing the azinonium persulphatein place of the potassium persulphate, it ?;o.s found to be oojec-tionahle for several reasons, although the combustion v/ere as good with the potassiun persulphate. The reasons arc: tlie tendencyof uninoniun persulphate to absorb water was very c^eat, and spon-taneous combusticns vrere liable to be the result; T/hen a largeaiiiount of the accelerator v/as up, it apparently decoj-posed to cone extent, -cting on the tartaric .acid; It was foung imposeible to powder tlio aruAoniun persulpliate fine enoUt^h.
