EXPLOSIVE COMPOUND

Nine parts of well-dried and finely powdered chlorate of potash, mixed with three parts of finely powdered galls, will make a highly explosive compound. Do not mix it in a mortar, as it would explode, but by means of passing through a brass sieve. The strength of common gunpowder may be increased by working up with the powdered meal about 12 per cent. of powdered galls, and regranulating it.

…for all you want to know.
