That pole of the galvanic battery by which the electricity enters into the substance suffering decomposition; the positive or + pole. This nomenclature was adopted by Professor Faraday. A-nor′tho-scope. The name given by M. Plateau of Brussels to an instrument invented by him and intended to produce a peculiar kind of anamorphosis by means of two disks rotating rapidly one before the other; the hinder one is transparent and bears distorted figures, while the front one is opaque and is pierced with a number of narrow slits. On revolving the disk the distortions appear as amusing and interesting figures and pictures. As in other toys of a similar kind, the effect depends upon the persistence of impressions on the retina. — Brande

The English Parliament had prohibited th
of science was ordered by Ptolemy Philadelphus in the college of Alexandria. He even authorized the vivisection of criminals condemned to death. Herophilus of Cos was among the first of the professors in this great school of medicine. The practice of dissection was very repugnant to the prejudices of the Egyptians, where to touch a corpse was defilement, as we see it also to have been among the Hebrews, who became habituated to many of the Egyptian modes of thought. Vesalius, born at Brussels 1514, died 1564, was among the most noted of the school of modern anatomists who have pursued the study of dissection. His distinguished professional career was terminated by an unfortunate affair, which turned out to be a vivisection, as the supposed cadaver proved to be living. The relatives who had granted the dissection denounced Vesalius to the Inquisition, who would have burned him but that Philip II. stepped in and had the sentence commuted to a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

One of the worsted yarns in a loom for weaving Brussels carpet. It proceeds from a bobbin on the frame and through a small brass eye called a mail, by which it is lifted when its turn comes to be raised to form a loop in the pattern. See Brussels carpet. End′less-chain pro-peller. One in whiff that portion exposed to the air. The Bour pan is somewhat similar, but the revolving, heating surface is made up of steam-heated drums on a shaft, revolving in a pan having a semicylindrical well. The evaporating cone C of Lembeck, near Brussels, consists of a double-walled cone c c about 16 feet high, and heated by steam in the space intervening between the walls.

Machine-made net or quillings, wholly plain, whether warp or bobbin (known as bobbin-net, tulles, blondes, Cambraic, Mechlin, Malines, Brussels, Alencon, etc.). 4. Lace, the ground being wholly made by machine, partly ornamented by machine and partly by hand, or wholly ornamented by hand, whether tamboured, needle-embroidered, or.) A thong formed of the combined ends of the cords by which a certain set of yarns are raised in the process of weaving Brussels carpet. Each yarn (termed an end) passes through an eye (the mail), to which is attached a cord passing over a pulley a, where the roadway is nearly on a level with the water. It is also used in fortifications. The drawbridges (a) of Brussels were balanced by weights attached to chains passing over standards that stood immediately over the walls of the canal, a
rument as the guillotine, which has a turning plank and track, with other devices for an artistic performance of tragedy. See guillotine. Mail. 1. (Weaving.) One of the small brass eyes through which the end or worsted yarn passes in a Brussels carpet-loom, and by which it is lifted in order to form the loop which distinguishes the surface of that variety of carpet. See Brusselscarpet. 2. (Nautical.) A device consisting of interwoven rings, like mail-armor, used for rubbing off e.

Open-work fabric for curtains or screens. See musquito-canopy, etc. Net′ting-ma-chine′. Lace is said to have been first made by machinery in 1768 by Hammond, a stocking-weaver of Nottingham, England, who invented what was known as the pin-machine, for making single-press point-lace in imitation of Brussels ground. The warp-frame for making warp-lace was introduced in 1782. The first attempt to make bobbinet by machinery was in 1799, but no successful machine was produced prior to 1809, when Heathcote patented his machine, in which, by means of bobbins, a series of diagonal weft-threads are passed around and intertwisted with the parallel threads of the warp. Many subsequent improvements were made on this machine, which has been variously modified to produce different kinds of netted fa

When cut, it may be, — Turkey, Persian, or Wilton by being woven over wires of the breadth of the cloth. Pile-weaving. In Brussels carpet and uncut velvet the wires are simply withdrawn and the loops left stan found in certain carpets, velvet, velveteen, fustian, etc. In the Imperial Brussels the figure is raised above the ground and its pile is cut, but the ground is uhe process of cauterization.
