    Since I neither wrap the horn strap around my neck, nor blunder through the woods in the manner of a club-footed moose, I don't consider that to be a serious hazard. :grin:

    "but afterwards it so happen'd, that in getting out herself, a Horn of Gun -Powder which hung over the Window took Fire, and blew her away back into the Room, where she was burnt to Death; hardly any Thing of her Remains were to be found the next Day, but two or three of her Bones."



    Having spent my career in the fire service for 30 years I have some experience with fire and ammunition and powder buring. I have to say I do not believe the reason she ended up back in the house was because she was blown into it.

    How wash, or worse. Thet's nonsense.
    We all know we are carrying an explosive around in a horn. Only safety valve we need is a working brain.
