It was designed as an improvement on the Prussian needle-gun, or zundnadelgewehr, to which it was opposed in the Franco-Prussian war of 1871, and derives its name from the inventor. A paper cartridge is employed in the gun as originally constructed in 1867, but in 1869 M.

e turret in which the gun is mounted so as to cover the embrasure; depressing the gun during loading below the embrasure, etc. For counterpoise carriages see: — Brewer's gun-carriage, 1870, is supported on a platform which is supported by levers within a curb, and a weight suspended from the ends of the levers counterpoises the gun, carriage, chassis, and platform. Callender and Northrup, 1864, have a platform supported by a piston in an air-cylinder beneath. Eads (1865, 1869, and 1871) causes the recoil of the gun to depress it backwardly and downwardly, it being poised on its trunnions on the end of an arm which oscillates in an are. As the gun descends, a piston traverses in a cylinder, compressing air therein, and the elasticity of the air assists in restoring the gun to its position when the loading is complete. Coughlan, 1870, has a cogged segment and weighted toggle which allow the gun to depress by the force of recoil. Taggart, 1863, has two guns on a cylindri
ose in November, 1835, which had segmental reciprocating dies to shape a straight blank by giving it the requisite thicknesses at the respective parts, and the creases for the nail-heads. The piece rested on a rocking anvil-bed. His patent of September 10, 1843, described a reciprocating rectilinear movement, cutting off from a heated rod a straight blank and impressing by dies, which made the fullering and nail-holes. His patent of June 20, 1857, was reissued June 3, 1865, and extended in 1871. In it the motions are rotary and continuous. The red-hot bar is introduced at the side of the machine, and a sufficient piece cut off by a descending cutter. It passes between guides to a stop, and is held in place till a bending-piece on a roller comes against it and carries it along. This piece corresponds to the inner shape of the shoe, and with this as a former the blank is carried past a series of dies which press it to shape, thinning the inner edge, thickening the heels, pinching
Canton Valais, Switzerland. The winding road is shown in the view, climbing up a spur of the mountain, which is immediately west of Mt. St. Gothard. See also views in Lippincott's magazine, Vol. VIII. p. 324; and London Engineer, Vol. XXXII., 1871, p. 233. The longest inclined plane on an artificial road is said to be that from Lima to Callao, which is about 6 miles, and has a descent of 511 feet, or about 1 in 60. The ascent from the Konkan, or flat country of Bombay, by the Western in Watt's original engines was 1/8 that of the cylinder; but, according to present practice, it ranges from 1/4 to 1/2 of that of the cylinder, and sometimes even more. See condenser; air-pump, etc. See Burgh, On condensation of steam (London, 1871). In-jec′tion-en′gine. (Steam-engine.) One in which the steam is condensed by cold water injected into the condenser. See Cornish engine; atmospheric engine. In-jec′tion-pipe. (Steam-engine.) The pipe through which the injecti

In Fig. 2963, the stay-rods D D, which hold the guides for the crosshead F, bind the cylinder E and shaft-bearings together to resist the rending strain. The link-block M L K is adjusted by shimming, and is held in any desired position by the toothed link H and the pinion O. See Burgh's Link-motion and expansion-gear. London, 1871. Link-worm′ing.

nable it to volatilize the bisulphide of carbon in a. g is a gas-holder to hold any superfluous gas, to keep the capacity adjusted to the varying volume of the contents. The boiling-point of the bisulphide of carbon is 118° Fah. The process is adapted to dissolving the oils contained in the strippings of machine-cards in factories, and saving the waste from the axles of car-boxes, the journal-boxes of machinery. See also Sim's and Hutchinson's processes and machines, patented 1869, 1870, 1871. These are also particularly intended for extracting fusel-oil from grain. Oil-fil′ter. Robinson's oil-filter acts by the upward pressure of a column of water below the oil. The operation is as follows: — Robinson's oil-filter. Oil-gas apparatus.
