to drive a piston in a cylinder, the power being intended to work a pump. The distance, the friction, and the leakage were too much for the Doctor, and the inversion of the process, making the primary engine exhaust instead of condensing, had no better effect. Thinking that it was the volume of air in the pipe which made the second cylinder unresponsive to the action of the primary cylinder, be reduced the size of the pipe, but still the pumping-machine would not move. In Auvergne and Westphalia the project was tried on an extensive scale, attempts being made to drain mines by these means. About one hundered years after the experiment of the philosopher of Blois, a Welsh engineer used the power derived from a heavy fall of water to work a blowing-cylinder from which air was conveyed to a blast-furnace a distance of a mile and a half. The resulting blast was feeble. Some forty years since, a Mr. Hague took out an English patent for the application of compressed air to workin
ing a disagreeable flavor to the meat. In some cases the twigs or branches of aromatic plants are added to the fuel; juniper is used for smoking the celebrated Westphalia hams. Corn-cobs are frequently used. Exclusion of air. In 1808, M. Appert invented a process for preserving provisions by parboiling, and inclosing them in ory furnace, and the process is stopped on the instant that the carbon has been sufficiently eliminated. Reported to have been first made by Anton Lohage, of Westphalia. In 1848, he began his trials at the Haspe Iron Works, near Hagen, in Westphalia, and after some time he succeeded in producing steel of good and uniform qualiWestphalia, and after some time he succeeded in producing steel of good and uniform quality by the ordinary puddling process. His invention was patented 1850, in England, by Ewald Riepe, and introduced at Low Moor; but, owing to the quality of the pig-iron, its use was very limited in England until, in 1858, Mr. William Clay introduced the process on a large scale at the Mersey Steel and Iron Works, Liverpool. In Ge
k. These two rails had, during the period of little more than three years, been exposed to the traffic of 9,550,000 engines, trucks, and carriages, and 95,577,240 tons. It is an amount of traffic equal to nearly ten times that which destroyed the Great Northern rails in three years. The result of this trial was to induce the London and Northwestern to enter very extensively into the employment of steel rails. Railway rails are made of puddled steel at the Hoerder Iron and Steel Works, Westphalia. The process consists in bringing a number of balls together to a heavy hammer (say a 12-ton steamham-mer), which welds them together into a homogeneous bloom. The faces of the hammer and anvil are hollow, so as to keep the metal together, and the bloom is sent at the same heat to the rolls. A number of puddled steel balls are welded into one, in a furnace, as a single puddled ball is not large enough to make a rail. Weight. The tendency to increase the stability of the track by in
