(Rd. No. 420,297.) This Instrument bas been designed to meet the requirements of Students and others who find the need of a Barometer which will give exact readings, and cost but a moderate sum.

It appeals especially to Colleges and Schools for Demonstration purposes.

The construction is on that of the well-known" Fortin" principle. The level of the cistern mercury is reducible io zero, in exactly the same manner as in the more expensive forms.

The diameter of the mercurial column is '25 inch, and affords a bold, well-defined reading. The scales, by means of the double vernier, are capable of being read to 'or inch and •millimetre. It is mounted on a well. polished, solid mahogany board, with plates for attach. ment to wall, opal glass reflectors for reading off, and screws for vertical adjustment.

The metal portions are all well bronzed and lacquered, and the scales are silvered brass.

We confidently recommend this Instrument for use as a "Standard" in Colleges and Schools, private Observatories, and by Gas and other Engineers. Price, complete, mounted as illustrated,

£3 7 6 each, or may be had with one scale (either inches or milli metres), and with thermometer on other scale, at same price.

- NATURE says :-“Provides an accurate instroment at a moderate cost.

The following is one of the many testimonials to the value of these Plates for scientific work:

“JENA: “It will perhaps not be without interest to you to hear of the efficiency of your plaies under exceptionally difficult circumstances. With your plates I have taken instantaneous photographs of projectiles moving at a velocity as high as 900 metres per second. I think that the pictures published in the transactions of the Royal Academy, Vienna (Paper on Experiments with Projectiles, Math. Nat. Class, Vol. CV. Div. Ila.) will furnish the most striking te-timonial of the value of your article. In the above paper and also in the "Süddeutsch. Photogr. Zeitung," I have given full particulars of the efficiency of your plates. Although the exposure was only 1/100,000th of a second, the pictures are wonderfully sharp and clean, and exbibit a grain resembling that of collodion plates, which lauer property renders the plates specially suitable for stellar photograpby.

Yours respectfully,

"sig. Dr. Ludwig Mach."
