Mystifying With Chemical Magic (Sep, 1936)
I like how it states that all of the stunts are harmless then proceeds to explain all the ways the ingredients are not.
Mystifying With Chemical Magic
WHILE all stunts described above are harmless, care should be exercised in the handling of the phosphorous and sulphuric acid (H2S04). Phosphorous when exposed to open air for periods longer than two minutes will burst into flame, therefore submerge it in kerosene when not in use. To protect your fingers from its effects powder them with chalk or talcum. A pair of small forceps may be also used, if available, in handling small pieces of the chemical. In handling the sulphuric acid be sure that none drops on clothing as it rots material.
A Water-Driven Ferris Wheel for the Camp (Jun, 1924)
I’m not sure that this would work very well… Not to mention building it the middle of a river with a decent current would be less than easy.
A Water-Driven Ferris Wheel for the Camp
By D. R. VAN HORN
THE chief merit of the amusement device shown in the drawing is the fact that it will give the users alternate sun and water baths as long as they wish and without effort on their part. Because of this wholesome fun and the simplicity of design the wheel is a desirable addition to any summer camp situated on a stream with sufficient current to operate it.
OK Skinnay! Lookut Our Rolley Coaster (Oct, 1921)
“Oh Skinnay! (The Days of Real Sport)” was a 1913 graphic novel about a child’s antics. Current uses of the word “Skinnay” are distinctly less savory.
OK Skinnay! Lookut Our Rolley Coaster
IT’S a far cry from the Bronx to Coney Island. Besides, Coney Island costs money. The children in the neighborhood of Crotona Park, New York City, therefore, have made a scenic railway all their own. It is better, they think, than all the Coney Island rides put together, and they have had the fun of making it as well as riding on it.
