Lum and Abner – A Bottle Of Nitroglycerine. 450911

Lum is sure he has uranium atoms in his box of dirt. He tries to explain to Abner his idea to get them separated by boiling them out. His next idea is to use something more potent to wash the atoms out. Just what is Nitroglycerine? The expression, “Rome wasn’t built in a day” confuses Abner. The need to be patient only leads to more figures of speech to confuse him, as he figures why does the expression always refer to Rome, and were people in a race to build cities back then? The mention of Nero only makes Abner think of a dog’s name. Could his hound, Blue, learn to play a fiddle too? The idea of his dog playing fiddle in carnivals is enough to make him want to abandon the uranium business. In all the excitement, and a careless moment, Lum has an explosive situation on hand with his Nitroglycerine.
