ut longer and wider than the bed so as to form a coverlid for the person who lies upon the inflated bed. When the bed is collapsed it can be folded in such a manner as to form a knapsack, and is provided with straps to enable it to be worn as such when on the march. Hamilton, July 16, 1867, ties the upper and lower surfaces of the bed, of air-proof material, by means of cords which are secured to button-headed screws and cap-nuts, which clamp the material and make the joint air-tight. Gilbert, February 11, 1868, stuffs the beds with elastic, hollow spheres of rubber. The same device was employed by a patentee in England, whose bed is described in the English Cyclopaedia, London, 1859. It was found to be too expensive for general use. An inflated air-bed is shown under bed; copied from a German work of A. D. 1511. Air′--blast. See blower. Air′--brick. An iron box made of the size of a brick, and having a grated side. It is built into a wall, and forms a ventilatin
s. Elec-trep′e-ter. An instrument for changing the direction of electric currents. E-lectri-cal Appa-ra′tus. Gilbert, in his book De Magnete, 1600, first introduces into the nomenclature of the sciences the word electric, deriving it frormined by distribution of mass, or by the forms of continents and by the extent of the deep intervening occanic basins. Gilbert was surgeon to Queen Elizabeth and James I., and died in 1603. The electric-telegraph preceded the electro-magnetic bich a thin layer of an amalgam composed of tin, zinc, and mercury is spread, and a suspended flap or apron of silk. Gilbert, in 1600, conjectured the fundamental identity of the forces known as magnetism and electricity, and measured the streng The strength of the electric force excited by the rubbing of glass, sulphur, amber, wax, resin, etc., was measured by Gilbert by means of an iron needle (not very small) moving freely on a point, versorium electricum; very similar to the apparatu
mode of stating it, set it down as being from 2° to 2° 30′ to the east. Columbus first noted a line of no variation about 100 miles west of the Azores. It is a remarkable fact that the earliest European writer on terrestrial magnetism, William Gilbert, whom we cannot suppose to have had any knowledge of Chinese literature, regards the mariner's compass as a Chinese invention which had been brought to Europe by Marco Polo. The compass of the Phoenicians is believed to have been a needld his services can hardly be exaggerated. The Arabs sailed by the compass during the Khalifate of Cordova, which lasted till A. D. 1237, when it was subdued by the Moors. An authority states that it was known in Norway previous to 1266. Dr. Gilbert, physician to Queen Elizabeth, states that P. Venutus brought a compass direct from China in 1260. See Klaproth's work on this subject, Paris, 1834; Sir Snow Harris's Rudimentary magnetism ; the researches of Biot, Stanislaus Julien, etc.
e rubbed with a wire scratch-brush, and burnished with a steel burnisher wet with cream of tartar. Graeger's process of covering iron and steel with copper consists in first treating the object, previously well cleansed, with a solution of protochloride of tin and afterward with ammoniated solution of sulphate of copper; from the latter metallic copper is deposited, firmly adhering to the object, which may be afterward polished. Zinc and galvanized iron may be coated in the same way. Gilbert's process of coating hard metals with tin or alloy consists in enveloping the metal to be coated, rolled into sheets of proper thickness, with a sheet of tin or alloy varying in thickness from .01 to .35 of that of the hard metal. The surface of the coating material is carefully rubbed smooth to prevent the formation of blisters or wrinkles, and the compound sheet is passed through polished rollers under a heavy pressure, by which considerable heat is generated, firmly uniting the surfaces
although indeed from very imperfect observations, as early as 1530, or a century and a half before Halley. The movement of the magnetic lines, the first recognition of which is usually ascribed to Gassendi, was not even yet conjectured by William Gilbert; but at an earlier period Acosta, from the information of Portuguese navigators, assumed four lines of no declination upon the surface of the globe. Hardly had the inclinometer, or dipping-needle, been invented in England by Robert Norman, in 1576, than Gilbert boasted that by means of this instrument he could determine the position of a ship in a dark and starless night. Pope Alexander VI adopted the line of no variation discovered by Columbus 100 miles west of the Azores, as the easterly limit of the papal grant to the Spaniards, May, 1493. He was not aware, no blame to him, that the line was slowly moving east, and would soon be far removed from its first-observed position. It was reserved for a future age to show the in
