, and Lilley, 1819. Ericsson's air-engine (1855). Ericsson patented improvements in air-engines in 1851, 1855, 1856, 1858, and 1860. The following affords an example of one of his engines. Ericsson, specification patent of July 31, 1855, dbruary 7 and 14, 1865. According to some analyses, wootz (East Indian steel) is alloyed with aluminium.

This work was constructed under the superintendence of Don Lucio del Valle, between 1851 and 1858, and is 47 miles in length. The river gorge is crossed by a cut-stone dam, 98 feet in hight, its wings abutting upon the the process of baking. 9.

D. 79. Bread was made with yeast by the English bakers in 1634. Was made by machinery in England in 1858. Was artificially inflated with carbonic-acid gas, with which the water of mixing was impregnated, by Dr. Dauglish, in 1859. Aerated bread was made in the
nlet and outlet pipes for the gas, and a revolving helix of wires or a helical frame with wide-meshed cloth. Varmaique, 1858, has a siphon arrangement for the supply of an upper chamber, which discharges by a pipe at the bottom of the lower chamber; the gas passes through the chambers. Vesian, 1858, introduced the float operating the valve of the admission pipe for the liquid. Martin, 1858, added a lamp, to expedite the vaporization. David, in 1859, used a bulb of displacement, to pr1858, added a lamp, to expedite the vaporization. David, in 1859, used a bulb of displacement, to preserve a constant level, instead of an automatic valve of admission; and this was so arranged as to maintain a uniform hight, although the liquid varied in density as evaporation proceeded. Ashcroft, 1857, had a float to govern the ingress of air,e application of compressed air as a water elevator, see Air as water elevator, compressed. In the city of New York, in 1858 or 1859, Captain Ericsson arranged a power to run sewing-machines for a clothing firm in that city. A caloric engine in t
by the rheostats r r and R R′ to points x z. If the resistances of circuits C to z and C to x are proportionately to each other as resistances of circuits x y or line, and z to earth, there will be no current in transmitting across the bridge x z, in which the relay or receiving instrument is placed. The larger portion of the incoming current, however, passes through and actuates the relay, as it offers the path of least resistance. Moses G. Farmer, of Boston, invented a duplex system in 1858, in which he used a key which preserved the continuity of the circuit, and also reversed the battery at the sending station, this reversal making the signals at the distant station, the relay being prevented from responding by the current of a local equalizing battery closed simultaneously by this key. Du′plex-type. (Photography.) A name given to a mode of taking two photographs of the same person in different positions by two operations, so that he shall appear in two characters — s
n the varnished roller. The points are moved by elaborate machinery, and the effect is analogous to that of the eccentric and rose-engine lathes. 2. An apparatus on the principle of the pantograph, but provided with a cutting device and machinery for causing pressure upon the surface to be engraved, so as to produce lines similar to those made by hand with the graver. Collas (English patent) engraving-machine, 1830. Electro-magnetic engraving-machine used in Germany, 1854; in America, 1858. Guerrant and Field's engraving-machine was patented in 1867, and was in operation in New York City during the year 1868. To engrave by means of this machine the operator sits with a copy of the drawing, photograph, or whatever design is to be engraved, directly in front of him. A small pointer rests upon the drawing, and the whole operation consists in moving the pointer over the several lines of the copy. The pointer is operated by two small cranks, one of which produces a vertical and

(Diamond-cutting.) The projecting points of the triangular facets in a rose-cut diamond, whose bases join those of the triangles of the central pyramid. Fi-a′cre. A French hackney-coach. Fi′ber-gun. A device for disintegrating vegetable fiber. Lyman's patent, No. 21,077, of 1858. Flax, hemp, jute, cane, or wood are placed in a cylinder and charged with hot water, steam, gas, or air under great pressure; the cover of the cylinder being suddenly removed, the mass is projected into a chamber where the sudden expansion of the fluid under pressure ruptures the cells and tears the fibers apart. Attempts have been made with more or less success to use this system of rapid exclusion of the matter, under pressure of generated carbonic acid, resulting from the treatment o

The Bishop rock lite gear-wheels on the axles, and all propelled by a gear in the center, driven by a pitman from the walking-beam. See Who invented the locomotive-engine? London, 1858, written by O. D. Hedley, the son of the inventor. Hedley's locomotive was objected to by residents of Newcastle, on account of the smoke. He therefore passed ,000 miles. See Clark's Recent practice on the locomotive ; Tredgold on Locomotive-engines, London, 1851; Heusinger and Clauss's Locomotive Maschine, Wiesbaden, 1858; Weissenborn's American Engineering, New York, 1861; The student's guide to the locomotive, London, 1849. The following figures, from the Railway Times, show th
c and Roman inhabitants of Britain had notches, forming a dress. Fig. 3156 is a collection of views of different millstones, which will not be described at length. The upper examples are quarter dress; then follow specimens of radial-and-circular dress, then a number of curved and circular systems. In addition to the features involving direction are others, such as openings in the bed or runner, forming pockets, or for ventilation, or to allow escape of fine flour. Natcher's patent of 1858 is for ruling lines with a diamond on the land of the stone to give it a cutting quality. In corn and feed mills with serrated iron plates for grinding, the dress is different, as shown in Fig. 3157. Many of these plates are frustums of cones or conoids. Millstone-dress (buhrs). Mill′stone-dress′er. A machine for cutting grooves in the grinding-face of a millstone. In one form of the machine, the lines radiating from the center are made by a tool raised and dropped by a cam

Another name for the pump-bit or shell-auger, used in boring out timbers for pumpstocks or wooden pipes. (See bit.) A slit-nose bit. Nose-hole. (Glass-making.) The open mouth of a furnace at which a globe of crown-g
