That form of electric signaling apparatus in which an insulated wire excited by frictional electricity is — or rather was — used to convey messages by sparks or shocks. For notices of early observationsiderable portion of the town was destroyed, shipping at some distance in the harbor much damaged, and a number of lives were lost. An explosion of a storehouse containing some hundreds of pounds of nitro-glycerine took place at Fairport, Ohio, in 1870, accompanied with much loss of life. The shock was felt at Buffalo, 160 miles distant. Nobel, in 1867, invented a compound called dynamite, which consists of three parts nitroglycerine and one part of porous earth. Dynamite is supposed to
are provided with spirally arranged knives, held between segmental binder-plates. Apertures at both ends are provided, so that the machine may be fed and run in either direction, to sharpen the knives and grind at the same time. McAllister's, 1870, has a cylinder of oblique blades operating upon vertical parallel blades on the concave beneath. In some cases the grinder is a frustum of a cone discharging at the base. Flock-grinder. In the example (Fig. 2028), the box has radial agiards wide to 1 10/16. After fulling, the cloth is washed to remove the soap. The method of fulling woolen goods in early times in Ohio is well described by Judge Johnston of Cincinnati, in his address before the Pioneer Society of that city, 1870. Kicking blankets. When wool became abundant, the method of scouring and fulling blankets, flannels, cassinets, and even cloths, was simple. Every house had hand-cards, and as many spinning-wheels as spinners, and no respectable house w

Coughlan, 1870, has a cogged segment and weighted toggle which allow the gun to depress by the force of recoil. Taggart, 1863, has two guns on a cylindrical carriage which is l position. Moncrieff's gun-carriage. For running the gun in and out of battery, and traversing and operating guns in turrets, see patent of Ericsson, 1866, 1870; Perley, 1865, 1867; Eads, 1864, 1865; Bartol, 1863.

Henderson's process for the manufacture of ironsteel (patents, 1870) embraces the use of fluor-spar and titaniferous ores, and treating crude ores by fluorides and oxides. The Ellershausen process consists in the conversion of crude cast-iron into wrought-iron by the admixture of granulated iron ore, a layer of5.Welling20, 4, 1869. Wurtz1, 1, 1867.Welling27, 4, 1869.

I′vo-ry-black. A species of bone-black made by the calcination of ivory scraps, turnings, and sawdust. It is used as a pigment in the manufacture of paints and printers' ink. I′vo-ry-pa′per. A superior article of pasteboard, with a <
nergetic working permitting the use of a much smaller quantity of water than usual. Mortar-mills, pug-mills, and many other machines come under this description, e. g. machines for mixing the ingredients of pills. Hyde's soap-making machine, 1870, is an instance in which the grease, resin, and lye are incorporated by a revolving stirrer in a cylinder, the operation being continuous. Mal′kin. A sponge with jointed staff for ordnance. Mall. A heavy beetle. See maul, and Fig. 303olving turrets to the British government, which was adopted after the Monitor had demonstrated the value of the invention. Captain Coles was lost in the iron-clad frigate Captain, a vessel of his own construction, in a gale off Cape Finisterre in 1870. See Plate IV. for a view of the Captain. Prior to the inventions of Ericsson and Coles was a proposition of Mr. T. R. Timby, of Massachusetts, who sent drawings of his proposed turret ships and batteries to the United States Patent Office in

m to enable it to volatilize the bisulphide of carbon in a. g is a gas-holder to hold any superfluous gas, to keep the capacity adjusted to the varying volume of the contents. The boiling-point of the bisulphide of carbon is 118° Fah. The process is adapted to dissolving the oils contained in the strippings of machine-cards in factories, and saving the waste from the axles of car-boxes, the journal-boxes of machinery. See also Sim's and Hutchinson's processes and machines, patented 1869, 1870, 1871. These are also particularly intended for extracting fusel-oil from grain. Oil-fil′ter. Robinson's oil-filter acts by the upward pressure of a column of water below the oil. The operation is as follows: — Robinson's oil-filter. Oil-gas apparatus.
