One scheme was to use a safety-match composition on the end of a fuse.
I sent you a safety-match box full of flowers last night from Leukerbad.

The grenadier wore an armlet covered with a friction composition such as is used on a safety-match box.
He could trust himself—but woe to the groom who so much as scratched a safety-match within his domain.
