Bridges of boats were in general use in the Middle Ages, and are still used on the Continent of Europe. One at Strasbourg is 1,300 feet long, and there is another at Cologne. One across the Seine at Rouen was constructed by Nicolas in 1700. Boat-bridges, in a military point of view, are classed as ponton-bridges, the pontons or bateaux and the road-bed being transported on wagons with the army, and thr
iring in a kiln. 2. (Horticulture.) A plant-house where a relatively high artificial temperature is maintained in order to facilitate vegetable growth. The botanic gardens of Pisa, Padna, and Bologna, established from 1544 to 1568, did not contain hot-houses. In the thirteenth century, however, Albertus Magnus, who was equally active and influential in promoting natural knowledge and the study of the Aristotelian philosophy, possessed a hot-house in the convent of the Dominicans at Cologne. This celebrated man, who had already fallen under the suspicion of sorcery on account of his speaking-machine, entertained the king of the Romans, Wilhelm of Holland, on the 6th of January, 1249, in a large space in the convent garden, where he kept up an agreeable warmth, and preserved fruittrees and plants in warmth throughout the winter. This entertainment was exaggerated into a tale of wonder in the chronicle Joannis de Beka, written in the fourteenth century. There is no evidence

Vindeline de Spire. The name and residence of the inventor of signatures are doubtful; it appears they were inserted into an edition of Terence, printed at Milan in 1470, by Anthony Zorat. And an edition of Baldi Lectura super Codic, etc., was printed at Venice by John de Colonia and Jo. Manthen de Gherretzem, anno 1474; it is in folio, and the signatures are not introduced till the middle of the book, and then continued throughout. Abbe Reve ascribed the discovery to John Koelhof, at Cologne, in 1472. They were used at Paris in 1476, and by Caxton in 1480. Si-le′Si-A. (Fabric.) A linen made in Germany. Si′lex. See silica. Sil′hou-ette. A profile or outline representation of an object filled in with black. The inner parts are sometimes touched up with lines of lighter color, and shadows are indicated by a brightening of gum or other lustrous medium. The invention has been ascribed to the daughter of Dibutades, a potter of Corinth, who drew the outline
wire with gutta-percha, which was laid between New York and Jersey City. Telegraphs of wire coated in this way were extensively introduced into Prussia in 1847-48, and in the latter year a guttapercha covered wire was laid across the Rhine at Cologne by Dr. Siemens. The first submarine cable ever laid in the open sea was laid between Dover, England, and Cape Grinez, France, in 1850. It was a single strand of wire, 27 miles in length, covered with gutta-percha, unprotected by any outside 0250 1865Trelleborg to Rugen, Germany5580 1865South Foreland, England, to Cape Grinez, France2530 1866Ireland to Newfoundland1,8962,424 1866Ireland to Newfoundland1,8522,424 1866Lyall's Bay to White's Bay4150 1866Crimea to Circassia40 1866Colonia to Buenos Ayres304 1866England to Hanover22427 1866Cape Ray, Newfoundland, to Aspee Bay, Cape Breton91200 1866Leghorn, Italy, to Corsica65100 1866Persian Gulf160110 1866*Khios to Crete2001,200 1867South Foreland, England, to La Panne, Fran
