ed is yet a cardinal color. The Etruscan augurs wore jack-boots. The Lamas of Tartary wear red boots and yellow cloaks. They leave their boots in the vestibules of the temples. So do the Turks. The latter brought the practice from Central Asia. There bought a pair of boots; cost me 30 s. — Pepys, 1662. The boot and shoe making business, more particularly since the introduction of pegs, which are said to have been invented by Joseph Walker, of Hopkinton, Mass., about the year 1818, has become a very extensive and important branch of manufacture, machinery being employed in nearly all the operations connected with the business. The first application of machinery in shoemaking is due to the celebrated Brunel, who devised a series of machines, which were operated by invalid soldiers belonging to Chelsea Hospital. The shoe passed through a number of hands before being finished; the operation which each man had to perform was so simple that it is said that the manipulatio

A means of indicating that the water in a boiler has sunk below the point of safety. See lowwater detector. De-tent′. A pin, stud, or lever forming and forth on the table to spread the supply of ink evenly around it. The arrangement was invented by Professor Cowper, and is described in his English patent of 1818. The distributing-roller in printing-machines carries ink from the ductor-roller to the inking-roller. To secure an even distribution, it is found necessary toe an endwise motion to the roller. This is secured in one of two ways. Professor Cowper's plan was to give a longitudinal motion to the axis (English patent, 1818). Applegarth's method was to place the axis of the distributing-roller obliquely to the surface against which it moved. It thus had a relative endwise mo- tio

The endwise motion of the ink-distributing rollers is in the English patent of Professor Cowper, 1818. The diagonal arrangement of the inking-roller, to give it a relatively endwise motion to the inkingtable, is described in Applegath's English patent, 1823. Ink′ing-ta′ble. (Printing.) A table upon which ink is spread to be taken up by the inking-roller. The combination of inking-table, trough, and hand-roller was invented by Professor Cowper, and was described in his English patent, 1818. In his printing-machine, the inking-table passed back and forth under rollers which received an end motion at the same time by means of an indentation along the edge of the table acting upon a frame in which the rollers were mounted. In Applegath's English patent, 1823, the rollers are placed diagonally across the table and receive <

The common carotid by Sir Astley Cooper (successfully), in 1808. The innominata by Mott in 1818, and successfully by Dr. J. W. Smythe in 1864. Ambrose Pare, born at Laval, in France, in 1509, was a member of the fraternity of barber-surgeons; but, such was the reputation he acquired as an operator, he was made surgeon to four successive stained. The American Seal-Lock Company employs sheets of variegated glass, cut into strips, for this purpose. Access to the keyhole can only be obtained by breaking the glass, which of course cannot be replaced. See seal-lock. Chubb's lock, 1818, has six or more tumblers turning on a pin common to all. Each of these must be lifted to a different hight before a stud on the bolt can pass through a continuous aperture formed by a slot in each tumbler when all are in their proper position. S
he extension of the rod. The conical pendulum (g) is hung by a piece of small round wire. The lower end is connected with and driven in a circle by an arm attached to a vertical, rotating spindle. The pendulum-rod describes a cone in its revolution. A rolling pendulum, consisting of a cylinder oscillating in small spaces on a horizontal plane, has been suggested, but has not evinced any qualities superior to the suspended pendulum describing an arc. In Reid's compensation pendulum (1818) the bob rests in a hollow cylinder of zinc, through which the rounded end of the steel pendulum is passed, the zinc itself being supported by the nut at the end of the rod. As the rod lengthens by heat, carrying the bob downward, the upward expansion of the zinc lengthens the rod and raises the bob to an equal degree. The pendulum of the watch is an oscillating wheel termed the balance (h); this is impelled by the mainspring and train in one direction, and is returned by the force of the

Its lid was secured by three locks, which were forced open in 1818, because the keys could not anywhere be found, leaving us to infer that locksmitoe-pegs are said to have been invented by Joseph Walker, of Massachusetts, about 1818. They are made by machinery. The bark is peeled off the log, which is then sater, which were lightened for the purpose.
