IT is so simple that any intelligent negro can learn to
manage ii in two or three days. You have merely
to shovel clay into a box and attach a horse to the sweep.
The machine tempers the clay and moulds the bricks in
the most perfect manner, such as the most experienced-
nana can scarcely equal. When burned they are found
to he stronger and more solid than those made in the
usual way, because the clay is worked sliffer under the
pressure ot the screw than it is possible to mould by
It requires one man to shovel in the clay, a boy

tilled to Ihe I
