They undoubtedly have hundreds of tons available. When allowed to escape into the atmosphere it immediately evaporates and forms a yellow gas. If the wind were favourable it would be the easiest thing in the world to inundate the I'country for miles ahead. Being heavier than air, it drifts in a thick fog along the surface of the ground, and escape from its deadly effects it* well nigh impossible.
