from A. F. Demory, of Houston, Tex.,
a half interest in a patented non-ex

fitted with an attachment that traps
the gas and prevents an explosion, no
matter if the receptacle be held in the
midst of the lames. Messrs. Demory
and Linde have also applied the in
vention to a tank made to fit any gas
stove, and equipped with a gauge that
indicates the quantity of oil in the re
servoir. The merits of the invention
have been successfully demonstrated
in New Orleans and Donaldsonville,
