operating continuously throughout the train are found in the patents of Marks, 1854, acting by rods and chains; Stewart, 1859, having rods and cog-wheels; Burrows, 1862, by rods and levers. Devlan's patent of 1861 acts by grasping the axle of the wheels; Blanchard's, 1866, by a shoe on the rail. Of the car-brakes exhibited at the Paris Exposition, 1862, Creamer's was automatic, instantaneous, and simultaneously applied to all the wheels of each car. The machinery of the system in common use remains unaltered, but there is added to it a reserved power in the form of a closely wound and powerful spiral spring, which may be set free by the pulling ofking the water from the one below it, and delivering it in turn to the one above it. B C shows the Coignard centrifugal pump, as shown at the French Exposition, 1862. A vertical section across the axis of one of these pumps is shown at B (Fig. 1216) and another section, also vertical, through the axis, at C (same figure). Here
erbourg two apparatus of this kind were employed, maintained by a single battery of 50 pairs of Bunsen, affording sufficient light for 800 workmen. The magneto-electric light was applied for illuminating the lighthouse at Dungeness, England, in 1862, and was introduced at La Heve, France, a year or two later. The machines employed at each are very similar in construction and entirely so in principle, the English apparatus being arranged after the following manner: — Eighty-eight bobbins oontents of the wagons or cars are discharged. A strong belt, carrying a series of buckets, travels over a drum at the lower end and also over one at the upper end, where the buckets tip over and discharge into the upper bin. This, as seen in Fig. 1862, has valved spouts F which direct the contents into either one of the deep bins A. The floors of these bins are over the tracks, and valves in the floor allow the contents of the bins to be discharged into cars or canal-boats, which are brought be
en complete, the utensil resembles papier-mache or varnished leather, and is light and durable. English patent 1,403 of 1862 cites the use of the silky down of typha or bulrush. The down is separated from the seeds by a willowing process and blowives, the effect being a shear cut upon the fiber passing between the edges, which shave past each other. See also Chase, 1862; Pitts, 1856; Marble, 1872.

the engagement of the rack-teeth with those of the spur-wheel. See Dr. Barnard's Report of the French Exposition, pp. 60 – 63. The same excellent report gives an account and illustration of the Lenoir gas-engine, of which three hundred were, in 1862, in use in France. The essential portions are a horizontal cylinder with a piston which communicates motion by a crank to a shaft which carries a heavy fly-wheel. The great weight of this wheel is for a double purpose: to absorb the force suddenr and of ammonia have been made with it. See ammoniacal engine. R. Waller (English patent, No. 1019 of 1854) uses condensible and permanent gases; as carbonic acid, ether, air. Vaporizes by steam or hot water. Arbos (English patent, 3108 of 1862), steam and gas combined. N. H. Barbour (No. 46,769, March 14, 1865) has a traveling car with reservoir supplied with carbonic acid from condensing stations along the route. See compressed air-engines on this principle; Bompas and others, pp.
not congeal at the freezingpoint of water, and the solution, thus made extremely cold, was then made to pass between cases containing the water, and, by reducing the temperature, secured the requisite congelation of the same. Twining's patent of 1862 is of this class. Next in sequence may be considered a French invention, in which the freezing agent employed was amylic ether, which is capable of being dissolved by sulphuric acid. The ether being expelled from the acid by heat, under a preser defeat of the Merrimac in Hampton Roads, March 9, 1863, rendered this little craft historic. She foundered in a storm, off Hatteras, December 31, 1862. See monitor. See also armorplating, p. 152. The Ironsides, completed at Philadelphia in 1862, was the only formidable side-gun iron-clad ever put in service in the United States. She was 240 feet long, 58 1/2 feet beam, and rated 3,250 tons, 1,600 horse-power. She was plated with solid plates 4 1/2 inches thick, and carried eighteen very
upon its back. By its means, the vocal chords of the interior of the larynx are exhibited, and have been photographed. One constructed by Dr. Turck in 1857 was modified and improved by Dr. Czermack of Pesth, 1856, who exhibited it in action in 1862, in London. Mr. John Avery of London is said to have constructed a similar apparatus in 1846. La-ryngo-tome. Laryngotomy, or the opening of the larynx, was practiced by the ancients in quinsey. It was recommended by the Greek and Arabian pe into a large receiver (a), and turned the exhaust-steam upon it. From the receiver the steam and smoke were conveyed by a pipe (b) to the chimney, which device soon developed into the steam-blast. Puffing Billy was at work more or less until 1862, when it was laid up as a memorial in the British Patent Office Museum. Hedley died in 1842. In 1815, Dodds and Stephenson patented an engine (shown by side and end views, Fig. 2985), in which the power might be applied either through wrists,

The Exhibition of 1862 in Paris showed several varieties of this art, which, in one of its nfall, etc. Stephen Chester of Elizabeth, New Jersey, patented in 1862 a telegraphic meteorometer which records at frequent intervals by a he has hitherto kept to himself. According to a statement made in 1862 by Mr. Farrants, president of the Microscopical Society, Mr. Peters ed with the tracer x. See Micrograph; Fig. 3132. It was stated in 1862 by Mr. Farrants, that the Lord's Prayer, containing 223 letters (ames calculated that with Peters's machine, at the London Exhibition of 1862, the whole Bible might be copied 22 times in the space of one squareor the United States by Captain John Ericsson, and launched early in 1862.

At the London Exhibition in 1862, a few yards of English muslin were shown, woven from a thread .0021

A name for an absorbing or draining shaft, bored or dug in the ground and used to carry water through a retentive to a porous stratum in which it may escape. See absorbing-well; drain-well.
