ed a fuel-chamber to the back grates, the bottom of the chamber being made to slope at a considerable angle. Jeakes, in 1854, formed a movable grate, which was lowered into the fuel-box, gradually consuming the fuel and admitting a supply of air from above to support the combustion. Rowe, in 1854, introduced coal into the bottom of the grate by a pipe leading from a side reservoir of fuel. In 1854, Bachhoffner consumed the smoke of one fire by passing it through an upper fire. Leighton, in 1856, surrounded the sides and back of a fire-grate with a fuel-chamber, the fuel being brought forward by a poker, as required. The outer coal is thus coked. See also fireplace. Grates are known by many names indicative of position, as low-down; purpose, as steam-furnace grate; construction, as revolving, shaking, etc. Fig. 2304 shows some forms, in which — a is the ordinary basket-grate of the parlor fireplace. b is the low-down grate as viewed from above, the wall in sect

Deakin's patent, 1816, had the magazine at the back of the fire, and the fuel was drawn forward horizontally by means of a screw. Alkin's English patent, 1825, resembled Deakin's. Rawe's magazine, 1854, is a fuel-pipe connecting the bottom of the grate with a side reservoir of fuel. The poker is the lever for introducing a fresh supply. Leighton, in 1856, surrounded the sides and back of the chamber with a fuel-reservoir, from which the fuel was withdrawn by the poker. See Magazinestove. 4. (Fire-arms.)
