the wire rope passes over anti-friction rollers between the rails of the track to and around a large submerged wheel some 100 feet distant from the summit, thence over the drum and other friction-rollers by the side of the track to another submerged wheel at the foot of the plane, around which it passes, and is attached to the rear end of the car. The boat is made in sections, to enable it to accommodate itself to the inequalities of the track when passing over the summit. Inclined plane, Morris and Essex canal. Arriving at a plane, the boat is drawn into the car in the order of its arrival, the team is unhitched, the tow-rope coiled on deck, the boat secured to the car by hawsers, and its two sections disconnected by a lever which pulls out the bolt uniting the hinge. The blade of the rudder is then raised out of harm's way, and the signal is given for the engine to start. After passing the summit the brakes are put on, and the car descends into the water where the boat float
Limerick lace made1829. Laced-stocking. A bandage support for varicose veins, weak legs, etc. Lace-mak′ing ma-chine′. Lace is a delicate kind of network composed of silk, flax, or cotton threads, twisted or plaited together. See lace. The meshes are of an hexagonal figure, in which thick threads are also interwoven to form the pattern, according to some design; and these threads, which are called gymp, form the ornament of the lace. The point-net frame was invented by Morris (England) in 1764, and is a variety of the stocking-frame, making a stitch or loop like that of a stocking, and formed by a continuance of one thread. The thread is by the machine formed into loops, a whole course at once, by pressing it down alternately over and under between a number of parallel needles. A second course is then made of similar loops on the same needles, and the loops of the first are drawn through those of the second in such a manner as to form meshes by retaining the fi

, Kelvedon, England, in 1853. The American machine was operated by the two persons who had shipped it from the United States: one of them was the present writer. The trial was conclusive. The American machine was driven by a portable engine of six horse-power, and averaged 64 bushels of wheat per hour; 448 bushels of barley were thrashed in six hours. nearly treble the work of the English competing machines, and the grain in much cleaner condition. The editor of the London Times. Mr. Mowbray Morris, himself witnessed the operation, and wrote as follows in an editorial of the following day, November 1, 1853:— The machine, which is portable, weighs only fourteen hundred-weight, thrashes easily, and without waste, at the rate of one bushel in forty seconds, and turns out the grain perfectly clean and ready for market. It is therefore about twice as light in draught as the lightest of our machines of the same description: does as much if not more work than the best of them, and,
