els. See brake, p. 356. There have been numerous attempts to secure automatic and simultaneous action, throughout the cars of a train, by power derived from a single impulse or operation. Room cannot be spared for their systematic description, but the following patents may be consulted: — Bessemer (English)1841Hodge1860 Hancock (English)1841Dwelley1865 Nasmyth (English)1839Davidson1860 Petit1840Marsh1864 Birch1840Virdin1859 Carr (English)1841Wilcox1856 Walber1852De Bergues1868 Fuller1859Chatelier1868 Sickels1857Lee1868 Cuney1855Ambler1862 Goodale1865Branch1858 Peddle1867McCrone1865 Car-buf′fer. (Railway.) A fender between cars. In the English practice, the ends of the car-frames carry elastic cushions, or buffer-heads with springs. In our practice the spring is usually behind the drawbar. See buffer. Car-bump′er. An elastic arrangement to lessen the jerk incident to the contact of colliding cars as the rate of speed is slackened. See buff
, obtained a patent for hollow spheres of rubber, enclosing air and separated by disks of wood or metal, the whole enclosed in iron cases. In 1845, Walker and Mills patented rubber bags filled with air and enclosed in a case for use as springs. Fuller, 1845, cylindrical rings of rubber having perforated disks between them, and a guide-rod passing through the whole. These had a tendency to swell out at the center under pressure, breaking or injuring the material. To remedy this defect, Spencebber placed on each end of a steel spring. Scott, 1852, blocks of rubber placed over the center of a steel spring. Bridges, 1857, employs wooden instead of iron surrounding rings to confine the rubber blocks, and dispenses with the central rod. Fuller, above referred to, employs for suspension springs round cords, wound at a considerable tension around two metallic rollers or reels. During the Russian war, a number of mortar-boats were built by the British government, each carrying a 13-inch
well known in Peru among the Incas, but was used to make the pigment vermilion, not to amalgamate the precious metals. Hawks writes, A. D. 1572, that the process of amalgamating silver ores with mercury is being substituted for melted lead. See amalgamator. In Bursile's English patent, February 12, 1853, the ore is treated with an amalgam formed by the union of quicksilver in a readily fusible alloy of lead and bismuth, or lead, bismuth, and tin. Lead-bath for precious ores. In Fuller's apparatus, the comminuted ore occupying the central shaft D is discharged in a diffused condition beneath the column of lead A, which is kept in a molten condition by the furnace beneath. The heavier portion of the alloy is drawn off at times at the pipe G. The ore rises through the lead, bringing the particles of gold or silver in contact with the lead, with which they unite. The flow of ore is encouraged by withdrawing air from above the lead by an air-pump. H is the discharge-pipe fo

. A horizontal fold or plait in a skirt, wide or narrow, and sewn throughout its length. Tuck-creas′er. An instrument for making a crease upon cloth while passing through the machine, to afford a line of fold for the next tuck. Invented by Fuller. Tuck-creaser. The illustration is one of many kinds. As the needle-bar descends, it presses on the spring-bar E, which descends on B, and presses the forked bar down upon the cloth and it upon the spurs beneath. See tuck-marker. See also Fig. 4875, page 2121. The early patents were Singer, 1856; Arnold, Wheeler, and Fuller, 1860. Tuck-fold′er. For folding over a tuck in advance of sewing on the machine. Goodrich's are made in sets; six in a set, adapted to various widths and spaces, and to various machines. Goodrich's tuck-folders. They are confined to the machine by thumb-screws. After selecting the width of the folder required, fold the goods where you want the first tuck; then introduce the folded edge u
