Bale-ties. In connection with the subject of ties for bales may be mentioned the devices for baling cut hay, and for baling feed and forage rations, to condense their bulk for transportation. The latter are especially intended for military
500 feet above the level of the sea. The Mexican name is cacauatl. The tree is 20 feet in hight, and frequently planted with intermediate rows of coffee-trees, to shelter the young cacao-trees from the scorching heat. The crops are gathered in December and June, and a well-bearing tree will produce from 20 to 30 pods, which are gathered in a period of three weeks or so, as they turn yellow. After being allowed to lie in heaps for a time to farther ripen, the pods are opened, the pulp removed,the efflux, and opened new ones. In the thirteenth century the Zuyder Zee was converted from an inland fresh-water lake into a gulf of the sea by a storm which destroyed the barrier between it and the latter. The Roman legions under Drusus, B. C. 12, dug a canal between the Rhine and the small river Sala, as a military defence; this became enlarged into a third branch of the Rhine; it is mentioned by Pliny. A fourth branch, the Leck, was created subsequently, in a similar manner, during an in
es that Necho commanded the Phoenicians to make their return to Egypt by the pillars of Hercules. Strabo, while discrediting the accounts of circumnavigations previously said to have been accomplished, does not deny the possibility of the circumnavigation, but affirms that from the east to the west there was but little wanting to its completion. Bartholomew Diaz reached and actually doubled the Cape of Good Hope in May, 1487, but, deterred by the storms, put back and reached Portugal in December of the same year, so that it was reserved for Vasco da Gama to first pass beyond the region of storms which surrounds the Cape and enter upon the waters, usually more placid, of the great Indian Ocean. Humboldt says: I have shown elsewhere how a knowledge of the period at which Vespucci was named Piloto Mayor would alone be sufficient to refute the accusation first brought against him in 1533 by the astronomer Schoner of Nuremberg, of having astutely inserted the words Terra di Ame
The mode of construction and operation was ascertained by a man named Foley, of Stourbridge, England, who traveled to Sweden and fiddled his way into the affections of the workmen at the mills, where he took mental notes of the machinery and brought them to England, where he established a factory. In July, 1790, Thomas Clifford patented in England a machine for making nails from the prepared rod by drawing it between rollers having cavities corresponding to the shape of the nail; and in December of the same year he patented a process for drawing bars or plates to a varying thickness and cutting the nails therefrom by a punch. Machines of this kind were in operation at French's factory, Wineburne, Staffordshire, England, in 1792. Cut-nails were first made in this country. About 1775, Jeremiah Wilkinson of Cumberland, R. I., cut tacks from plates of sheet-metal, and afterward made nails and spikes in a similar manner, forming the heads in a vise. Ezekiel Reed of Bridgewater
of their firmness and tenacity, come from Greece and Barbary. That from the West Indies is harsher, coarser, and less durable than the Mediterranean kinds. On the Barbary coast sponge-fishing is most actively prosecuted during the months of December, January, and February; at other seasons the places where the sponges grow are overgrown with sea-weeds, which are swept away by the storms occurring in November and December. The summer fisheries are conducted in shallower water by divers orDecember. The summer fisheries are conducted in shallower water by divers or by wading; the produce is less and the quality inferior. Three methods — spearing, diving, and dredging — are employed. The Greeks, who are the most skillful and successful sponge-fishers, employ small boats, carrying a rower and a spearman, the latter of whom views the bottom through a tin tube, furnished with a sheet of glass at the lower end, which is held beneath the surface of the water. He manages to transfix sponges at a depth of sixty feet by using three or four spears, thrown with s
