A Jaro number of peoplo visited Colt'3

tost of more than a year in New York vrhero
Kivcral liavo been steadily in uso during that
timo. TLo machine looks liko a roun 1 tov.-cr
with a 1 board in front end shelves at tho
ride. The operator plays on the key.;, and type
carried out V) a trough and on to tho
rhclf v.L'VO tho proeecsion of pieces of rcrtal
is cut r.t nil. rrals, each correspondins to tho
length of a l:n Hero another operator
justMes Ih- matter, that h, takes out or puti
in spaces to make tho -.rords come at proper
distanc ? from each other and tho typo exact
ly fill the l:ne. "While thl is going on other
typo is b ing distributed. To understand
thisitisneceiary to go back to tho upright
cylinder first mentioned. This is mado in t.vo
parts, on? revolving abovo tha other, and
each having ninety vertical grooves in vrhich
tho type lests. Each groovo in the louver
cylinder, which L stationary, has riJge?
within it which correspond to tho projecting
tumblers in a lock, thosi in each groovo being
different from those in any other. Each typo
ha3 corresponding notches cut in it, bko
wards on a'steel key, and tho arrangement ia
euchthat tho typo fa'b from the upper re
volving cylinder only when it3 notches cor
respond to tho wards in a groovo of tho lowor
cylinder over which it is passing. Xovrby a
simplo arrangement a wholo lino of typo n
thrust into the upper cylinder. Tiu3 :z re
volving fast and when tho lowest typo finds
Its appropriate groove in tho lower c. lindor
it drops Lito it. Then the ono just abovo it
goes through tho .same performance and than
tho next, end eo on.
There i; an ingenious arrangement by
which tho typo that 13 set is got into a trougli.
Tho motion of tho key simply throws them
