In the ordinary way, decomposition of carbide is accompanied by a species of effervescence, but the bubbles should break smartly and leave the surface of the liquid reasonably free from foam. Sometimes, however, the bubbles do not break, but a persistent "head" of considerable height is formed. Further production of gas only ...

Over one of these the birds hung and flew with an incredible density like that of gnats or hiving bees; the mass flashed white ...
