April Fool Whistle -- April Fool's Day, 1899

"An April Fool whistle can be made as shown in the illustration, and filled with flour, which will fly into the face of any one who tries to blow it. A B (Fig. 1) is a tin tube, stopped by two pieces of cork. One at the end has holes in it and a glass tube through it, as shown in Fig. 2. The other figures explain themselves.
[The Young Folks' Cyclopedia of Games and Sports, 1899]
