to certain 'death:
The be rrel of a rifle has, running the length

The 'great object therefore to be 'obtained,

to give the rotary Motion. and to stfve the I

- Ar, reneli gunsMith invented a rifle which ,!
had its qeeCh pin project wedge shaped,' a
'bout two inches into the barrel: The ball,.a
conical„ shaped one, was then
the barrel, and a few heitvly blows by 'Abe

so as tO il the grooves in- the barrel. '
nie ball, now so famous, is -an ini r
proxerne tupoil all balls, inasmuch as it makes
the poWd .r slug or spread the ball, instead of
the rutin er doing that work. - 1
- Thei,,bll is oblong with a conical point; in
