Publisher Comments:

Dynamite is at the beck and call of any farmer who has use for it. It can be handled successfully by anyone who will use good judgement and follow directions carefully; and it is safer than some people believe. It is true that due respect must be paid to the power stored in a cartridge of dynamite or a cap; but millions of pounds are used annually in this country with comparatively few accidents. If properly employed, dynamite is a reasonably safe commodity.

The object of this booklet is to explain the methods of handling dynamite with the greatest degree of safety and how to secure the most efficient and the most satisfactory results.

(Above publisher remarks are from 1934.)
