All except the pump chambers and pipes was made of wood on the spot. The water that was lifted was carried away from the works in a flume 160 meters in length, which likewise removed the water from the motive wheels. For the service of the same excavation two simple acting inclined planes were installed that were moved by a four-horse wheel. The tracks of these planes were made of wood.

For emigrants wishing to secure a "homestead," which is a grant of 160 acres given by Government free, with the exception of an office-fee, amounting to ten dollars on all the even-numbered sections of a town-ship, he will now have to travel much further west, as every acre around Winnipeg is already secured, and has in the last two years risen most considerably in value.

What's the final result?" "The result is, sir," answered Herzog, meek and cowed under this harrying, "that calcium nitrate is produced, a very excellent fertilizer. It's a form of nitrogen, you see, directly obtained from air." "At what cost?" "One ton of fixed nitrogen in that form costs about $150 or $160." "Indeed?" commented Flint. "The same amount, combined in Chile saltpeter, comes to ?"

We count our strength in Dreadnoughts and Super-Dreadnoughts, and so long as we are spending our national resources upon them faster than any other country, if we sink at least £160 for every £100 sunk in these obsolescent monsters by Germany, we have a reassuring sense of keeping ahead and being thoroughly safe.

One of their terrible pieces of ordnance carried stone balls of 160 lb., and no wonder that stone and mortar gave way before it, and that a breach was opened in a few days' time. That night, when, as usual, boatloads of wounded men were transported across to the Borgo, the Bailiff of Negropont sent the knight La Cerda to the Grand Master to give an account of the state of things and ask for help.

They were desirous, however, of ascertaining how this little animal, least of all others subject to giddiness, would endure this experimental voyage. The mortar was charged with 160 pounds of powder, and the shell placed in the chamber.

They did not seem as likely to have apoplexy or cardiac failure. About 85 percent of high tension cases occur between the ages of 40 and 70. While he believes that a systolic pressure of over 160 mm. is pathologic, he does not find that any definite prognostic conclusions can be drawn from the height of the pressure.

That is to say, a man may be perfectly comfortable and properly need, for example, a pressure of 160 or 165 mm., which is above the physiologic limit, but which is a plus pressure, while some disturbance in his general life may add to that 10, 15 or 20 mm. more of pressure, which is then the over plus amount.

Some idea of the number represented by these different sects may be derived from the following table: Asiatic Religions Buddhists 369,000,000 Hindoos 231,000,000 Mussulmen 160,000,000 ChristiansRoman Catholics 170,000,000 Protestants 80,000,000 Greek Church 76,000,000 Jews 5,000,000 Other Religions 200,000,000

We then enjoyed bright and clear weather, while running pleasantly along at the rate of 150 or 160 miles a day before the steady trade-wind. The temperature in this more central part of the Pacific is higher than near the American shore.
