A small hand-mill in which roasted coffee-berries are ground by passing between the serrated surfaces of opposed steel disks or rollers, or roller and concave, as the case may be. Coffee is the berry of the Coffea Arabica, a shrub of the order rubiaccoe, and its fruit resembles the cherry. Bruce says that it is native in Abyssinia. The use of the infusion as a beverage cannot be traced back very far. It was carried by Selim from Egypt to Constantinople, but does not appear to have been publicly sold till 1554. Its use was forbidden by the mufti, but again permitted by an edict of Solyman the Great. The Venetians brought it from the Levant in 1615, and in 1645 it was introduced into Marseilles. Coffee was introduced into England by Daniel Edwards, a Turkey merchant, in 1657. T

One of the harps has 21 strings, the other 12. These most florid and striking of all the representations of the Egyptian harp are on the tombs of the Egyptian harps. kings at Thebes of the time of Rameses III., 1235 B. C.; of them Bruce says: They overturn all the accounts hitherto given of the earliest state of music and musical instruments in the East; and are altogether, in their form, ornaments, and compass, an incontestable proof, stronger than a thousand Greek quotations, that geometry, drawing, mechanics, and music were at the greatest perfection when this instrument was made, and that the period from which we date the invention of these arts was only the beginning of the era of their restoration.

rt to have originated in Egypt, — the land where, over all others, the husbandman could tell when he sowed his grain how much he was to reap in harvest; where the chances were reduced to the minimum; and where, first of all lands, a cultivated leisure was possible. The musical instruments of Egypt utterly disprove the statements of Diodorus Siculus, that music was unknown in that country. A remarkable instance, which may stand as a complete refutation, is found in the harps discovered by Bruce depicted upon a tomb near the ruins of Thebes. These were so superior to the harps of 100 years since, that doubts were entertained of the fidelity of the representation; but Rosellini's Monumenti della Egitto, and Wilkinson's Ancient Egyptians, have removed all doubts. (See harp.) The testimony of Herodotus, Plato, and others also enforces the statement, that music arose in Egypt and came thence to Greece. When the Israelites left Egypt. they carried away with them some of the arts wi
lel. We have then arrived at the harp, which must have been used for ages before it attained the splendid proportions and finished appearance of those found represented in a tomb of the time of Rameses III., 1235 B. C. These figures are called Bruce's harpers, from their discoverer, and are illustrated under the section treating of that instrument. See harp. The Old Testament Scriptures abound in the names of instruments of the harp kind; the lyre, the psaltery, and instruments of 10 stlding a plectrum. e is a bow-shaped twelve-stringed harp, from an Egyptian painting copied by Wilkinson f is from an Egyptian picture representing a figure playing on a harp with triangular frame and perpendicular strings. (See harp, for cut of Bruce's harpers.) g is a medieval cithara. h is a psalterium, from an illuminated Ms. of the fourteenth century. i is a dulcimer, from the Musurgia seu Praxis Musicae, by Ottomarus Luscinius, Strasburg, 1536.

culiar machine, worked in a manner analogous to the engravers' plate printing-press, and the sides are squared by a saw (see stereotype-saw; stereotype saw-table), and beveled by a plane while held on the shooting-board (see stereotype shooting-board). Any flat shallow places into which the paper might be pressed and gather ink are worked deeper by the stereotype routing-machine (which see). Dipping-pan. Stereotyping apparatus. Stereotyping was introduced into the United States by David Bruce, of New York, in 1813; the first work cast in America was the New Testament, in bourgeois, in 1814. The curving of stereotype-plates to adapt them to a cylinder printing-press was patented in England by Cowper in 1815; but was not practiced with any great success until of late years, when it was introduced upon daily newspapers in connection with the revolving type-cylinder of Hoe.

y of Philadelphia, established A; 1796. The old hand-mold and spoon reigned supreme till 1838, when the first successful type-casting machine was invented by David Bruce of New York. Machines for casting a number of types, simultaneously projecting from a common sprue, like the teeth of a comb, had been invented in America and in Europe, but no success attended them. David Bruce's machine is the model of all American and many European type-casting machines. The great difficulty experienced in the development of a machine for typecasting was in the fact that the resulting type was porous, and about 15 per cent lighter than the hand-made, each of whichis estimated at 25 per cent. The quality is, if anything, superior, and the machine enables steam power to be used for the production of some varieties of type. Bruce's type-casting machine. After casting, the jet, or surplus metal, at the foot of the type and which filled the ingate of the mold, is broken off; the sides of
