I NEW ANTI AIRCRAFT INVENTION. I Mr. J. A. Sambrook, a well-known resident of Ellei-mere Port, has, after many months' experimenting, perfected a device which he claims will be an ef- fective weapon of offence against Zep- pelin?. A Zeppelin can remain afloat when pierced from below because of the escape of gas being infinitesimal, and the object of this inventionis to pierce a Zep- pelin at the top and at the same time ignita the escaping gas. The new weapon is an ordinary-sized bullet, charged with a special prepara- tion known only to the inventor. Travel- ling at a tremendous velocity, it emits a tail of sparks, and as it enters the Zep- pelin the sparks will ig-nite the gas and cause fire. and es it emerges from the envelope at the top will also ignite the gas there. The bullet can be fired from ordinary rifles, but is most adaptable to aircraft and machine guns. It occupi es twelve seconds before it is spent, but is capable of travelling several thousand feet before its effect has been vanished.
