During the Texan war of independence
140 Texans were b -sieged in a fort called
the Alamo, near San Antonio, by 2,000
Mexicans. Santa Anna finally stormed
the place, and six Texan whosurvived the
conflict were subsi qucntly murdered after

The Dynamo Current.
1 here is a good deal of wonder concern
5:vg the action of the dynamo, how it pro
duces current. How can power come from
a union of east iron, copper wire, sheet,
irou and paper? I asked the question of
Mr. liri;gH, regardless of the shock I might
inflict upon his scientific system. This is
about what he (.aid in reply: "All the iron
wo use is, as I told you at the beginning of
your inquiry, slightly magnetic. If it ia
not, we magnetize it by means of a strong
current. We are sure of a small quantity
of a residual magnetism in the iron frame
of t he magnet.
"This residual magnetism does the busi
ness. The engine is started, the rapid
revolution of the armature which connects
the two poles of the magnet generates it in
a current from the rpserve fund, this cur
vent passes to the field coils, which are con
nected through a sort of bypath to the
winding of the armature, and charges them
to their f ull strengt h.
"A powerful magnetic field is then cre
ated between the poles of the magnet, and
as the armature is revolving in the very
center of this field, current is generated in
the coils of the armature. Thus the two
principal parts of the machine help each
other. There is sufficient magnetism about
t iie machine to cause the generation of cur
rent to begin directly the armature is re
volved. "A portion of this current goes to the
mils of the field magnets and at. once
strengthens their magnetism, which nat
urally causes a corresponding increase of
strength in the currents generated in the
armature. In a very short time the mag
netic lield attains its full strength, and the
dynamo is developing t he full amount of
energy for which it was designed. Tnis,
in a few words, is the beautiful principle
of the self exciting dynamo. Cf t lie power
supplied lo the dynamo by the driving en
gine, it delivers about nine tent hs in the
form of electrical energy, available for
lighting, for driving motors, for electro
plating, for 1 he reduction of ores and for
dozens of other useful purpose-.. Avery
small percentage of the power is used in
the dynamo itself energizing the field mag
nets." Klectrieit v.
