1912 Farmer's Handbook- How To Use Dynamite- Dupont Red Cross 160 Pages For Sale
How to Use Red Cross DYNAMITE
~ITEM DESCRIPTION~ What ever happened to farmer's using hundreds of pounds of dynamite to make farm chores easier? This 160-page 1912 Dupont Red Cross Dynamite How-To booklet outlines many uses for dynamite on a typical farm, back in the days when you could buy dynamite at your general store...-
This very complete booklet shows how to use dynamite - and the results of using it- to dig drainage ditches, blast out huge rocks in the field, clear stumps the easy way (it made kindling of the stump), break up subsoil for better plant size and health, excavate cellars, blast out post holes, sink wells. No mention is made of car bombs or blowing open safes. It was far cheaper to use dynamite than manual labor to remove tree stumps (around 30c per stump, do it yourself). I remember as a little kid visiting a relative's Indiana farm riding around helping to blast out large rocks that the plow hit.
The booklet is 9" x 6", and after the numbered pages. there are advertising pages for other DuPont products such as "Learn Trap Shooting- The SportAlluring for Men and Women"; Sporting Black Powder; Smokeless Sporting Powders. Instructions are given for ordering dynamite directly from the factory (the only warning given is by law it must be picked up from the freight station within 48 hours).
Email with any questions or if you need more details. This is a fascinating piece of farm history.

~PAYMENT, SHIPPING, PACKING MATERIALS~ As you probably know, the wise rulers of have recently decreed that payment via their own company, PayPal, must be made available for ALL items sold on . PayPal will be happy to accept your credit cards and echecks. I am not allowed to list other acceptable methods of payment, but recent info on the site says that if a buyer emails me wanting to pay using a method other than PayPal, (and that method is acceptable to me) they may use that method .
Shipping in the USA: The US Postal Service just gave us a huge price increase in nearly all package services. The current postage cost from Northern Indiana to your door will be displayed near the top of this sale page.
Foreign Shipping- Most packages under 4 pounds (about 1700 grams) are best shipped First Class International, the cheapest possible service. However, the recent price increases on all foreign shipping using FCI have increased enormously to all countries, even Canada. In most cases prices are DOUBLE what they were- plus the 9% "tax". Flat-rate box and envelope prices also had huge increases.
I ship next business day.Try not to be shocked by the prices- sellers are not trying to make money on postage, just need to cover their USPS costs plus cost of packaging materials.Cost also has to include the new 9% postage & handling by onmy total shipping cost.
- I hate reserves, and bet you do too.
