The circumstances of position and use are so very varied that no general statement of its mode of application will apply. Sometimes it is stored in reservoirs at the point where it is used as a motor or a ventilator. Fisk and Waterman's compressed-air reservoir. Fisk and Waterman, January 17, 1865. The reservoirs for compressed air are located within the mine, and connected by comparatively large induction-pipes with the air-forcing pump at the mouth of the mine.
