Seite 273 - ... compressed. The ball on the top serves as a mere reservoir of air to equalize the action of the apparatus as much as possible. The whole of this apparatus is enclosed in a wire cage for the sake of protection from blows. To graduate this apparatus, I let it down in a known depth of water, say ten fathoms, and having observed the point to which the ring in the glass tube is pushed, and having marked this point off, the ball is to be unscrewed, and with a small ramrod the ring is to be pushed down...

In preparing indurating mixtures, to be applied to the exteriors and interiors of buildings, whether possessing a surface of brick, stone, cement, or plaster, the following ingredients are employed : — Mixture No.
Seite 404 - The Maker of the Universe has established certain laws of nature for the planet in which we live, and the weal or woe of mankind depends upon the observance or neglect of those laws.
