THE NEW "STUDENT'S" STANDARD BAROMETER.
(Rd. No. 420,297.). This Instrument has been designed to meet the re quirements 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 redecible to zero, in exactly the same manner as in the more expensive forms.
The diameter of the mercurial column is az 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 1 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 "Standard" in Colleges and Schools, private Observa. tories, 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 millimetres), and with thermometer on other scale, at same price.
I NATURE says :-"Provides an accurate instru ment at a moderate cost."
