eration of the water to a sufficient extent to crystallize it; that is, form it into ice. Reece's apparatus operates substantially on the Carre principle. The ammoniacal gas employed passes under considerable tension from the refrigerator into a cylinder having a slide valve, entry and exhaust ports, similar to those of a high-pressure engine, so that the gas is utilized to drive the pumps of the apparatus. From the cylinder it passes to the absorber and is returned to the reservoir. Seely employs anhydrous ammonia. The generators are filled, or partially so, with dry, pulverized chloride of calcium. One of the generators is heated by steam coils, the generated gas passing through the condenser, evaporating in the refrigerator, and is finally absorbed by the dry chloride in the other receiver, to which heat is then applied in its turn, the other reservoir now becoming the condenser. In Johnston and Whitelaw's, the liquid, bisulphide of carbon, after being vaporized is, wi
yline, powdered camphor, and nitric ether. When gun-cotton or pyroxyline is heated with powdered gum-camphor it is dissolved, and this material, under the name of celluloid, is extensively used as a substitute for hard rubber for combs, billiard-balls, dominos, knife-handles, dental plates, truss-pads, coating metallic articles, and for the manufacture of imitation coral, ivory, tortoise-shell, horn, and the like.

r malt to produce glucose. Hawks, June 27, 1865. Ground malt is macerated with corn meal and elutriated to remove saccharine, which is evaporated in vacuo. Goessling, September 5, 1865. Soak corn in alkaline ley. Crush, strain, and add the starch to a boiling acid solution, defecate with charcoal, neutralize with alkali. Evaporate and crystallize (?). Goessling, September 5, 1865. Two modifications of the last. Watson, December 5, 1865. Kiln-dry meal, and macerate in water. Seely, January 10, 1865. Saw-dust purified by alkali, macerated in boiling acid solution, and added to 5 times its quantity of starch, and 10 times the quantity of water. Concentrate. Deissner, June 19, 1866. Corn boiled in water; malt, sugar, and flour added. Hirsh, October 16, 1866. Corn soaked in dilute sulphuricacid; heated to 170° Fah.; ground, sieved, washed; starch boiled in solution of sulphuric acid, sulphuric alumina, and charcoal.

slots in the edges of the studplate. B has studding and frame of angleiron c, with panels of iron lattice-work d, which is covered in entirely by concrete material e. C represents on a small scale one or two rooms of a house constructed on Seely's plan, with corrugated sheetmetal and angle-iron. D has an open framework of metallic sections f, with sides of double wire gauze j. inclosing plaster of Paris, and with an outer sheathing of metal h, in imitation of masonry, isolated from thehouse; the pier having an open way beneath it for the flow of the water, being constructed on iron columns, and the wharf having a cart-way around it to facilitate loading and unloading vessels, and the delivery of freight from the warehouse. Seely's pier and bulkhead. Fig. 7160 shows the application of iron to pier and bulkhead work. The hollow piers of metallic tubular sections are so formed that each tube or section is locked between two tubes or sections when arranged in lines or
