f the war, he was knighted, and in 1784 entered the service of the Elector of Bavaria as aide-de-camp and chamberlain. To that prince he was of infinite service in reorganizing the army and introducing many needed reforms. He greatly beautified Munich by converting an old huntingground into a handsome garden or park, and the grateful citizens afterwards erected a fine monument to his honor. Thompson was successively raised to the rank of major-general in the army, member of the council of se again visited England, and returning to Bavaria in 1796, when that country was threatened by the war between France and Germany, he was appointed head of the council of regency during the absence of the elector, and maintained the neutrality of Munich.

roup of debatable phenomena known as mesmeric, hypnotic, psychic, and spiritualistic. Reports of a large number of varied and careful experiments in induced telepathic communication are published in their Proceedings; branches of this society have been established elsewhere, notably in the United States. In this connection also an international congress of experimental psychology has been formed: First meetings held in Paris, 1889; second, at University College, London, 1893; the third at Munich in 1896. In a report of this congress, 1893, it was stated that in a census of hallucinations undertaken by 410 members of the congress, 17,000 answers were obtained from Great Britain, France, America, Germany, etc., to the question, Have you ever, while in good health and believing yourself to be awake, seen the figure of a person or animated object, or heard a voice which was not in your view referable to any external physical cause? The answers in the negative numbered 15,311, and thos

A cheap equatorial, with coarsely divided circles, and a large field in comparison to its aperture. Its name suggests its use, and the resultant find is subjected to the more accurately graduated and more powerful instruments of comparatively limited fields. The comet-seeker of the Washington Observatory was made by Merz and Mahler, of Munich. It has an object-glass of about 4 inches in diameter and a focal length of 32 inches. Low powers are used, that it may embrace a large field and collect the greatest possible quantity of light. It cost $280. Com-mand′er. 1. (Nautical.) A large wooden mallet, used in the sail and rigging lofts in driving the splicing-fid. 2. (Hat-making.) A string on the outside of the conical hat-body, pressed upon it down the sides of the block, to bring the body to the cylindrical form. <
overies previously made by others, for many important discoveries of his own, and for the courage and perseverance which he manifested, in endeavoring to render his system of practical utility to mankind by bringing it prominently to the notice of the public; and he lived to see it adopted in its essential features throughout the civilized world. In the mean while Gauss and Weber, and after them Steinheil, in Germany, were at work, and constructed a short line between the Royal Academy at Munich and the observatory; this, by means of right and left hand deflection-needles, was caused to print dots on a continuous slip of paper, moved by clock-work. While making experiments in connection with this work, Steinheil made the important discovery that the earth might be used as a part of the circuit, thus enabling him to dispense with one half the length of wire which was thought requisite. The attention of Wheatstone, in England, appears to have been drawn to the subject of telegra

Mr. Mullett, the supervising architect of the Treasury Departmnent, indorses the statement, and prefers sound oak timber to cast-iron, especially if it be treated with a liquid silicate. Fire-proofing by rendering the timber of the structure incombustible has been frequently attempted. Payne's process consists of immersion in a solution of barium or calcium. Professor Fuchs of Munich recommends as a material for rendering wood fireproof a composition of potassa or soda, 10 parts; siliceous earth, 15 parts; charcoal, 1 part, fused and formed into a water-glass and applied in solution. It forms a vitreous coating. An English composition is as follows: Fine sand, 1 part; wood ashes, 2 parts; slaked lime, 3 parts. Grind in oil, lay on with a painter's brush, the first coat thin and the next thick. Fire-proofing may be said to be accomplished when—1, the building is o

See Woodbury process; nature-printing; Heliotype; Albertype, — so named from Herr Albert of Munich. Gem. A precious stone, as a diamond, ruby, sapphire, emerald, topaz, opal, etc. Some of those in the following list are only semi-precious, and are not strictly gems. In a mechanical point of view, they have about equal interest. Some cor on the wheel, then replaced the mass in the furnace, so that the vitreous matter might expand and fill up the spaces. He thus combined good pieces of glass, so as to build up lenses of flintglass of fine quality. Guinand joined Frauenhofer in Munich in 1805, and returned to his native canton in 1814, where he died, and was succeeded in his business by his sons. Glass-spin′ning.
