J. E. Atwater, an inventor of some prom«
iner.ee, has secured patents on nn unique
and entirely new motor. It is founded or*
this principle: The poles of an eletro
magnet charged to a point distant from,
where they are usually located. By this
transfer a stroke of five .to thirty inches is
secured in a reciprocating or an oscillating
engine without breaking the current which
connects the battery with tlie motor.
Witli the greatly increased power thus
gained, there is no increase in tlie battery
necessary. The power gained is continu
ous arid noiseless, and the cost at a mini
mum. Tlie machine will shortly be
placed on exhibition. Scientific men agree
that many of its principles are new to
science, arid that it may work r. revolution
in motors.
