A device to prevent freezing water from bursting water pipes bas been in vented in England. It is well known that when water freezes it expands, and that the force exerted la so enormous that no pipe can resist it. This inven tion is intended to give the water a chance to expand without bursting the pipe. It attempts this by securing in the inside of the metal pipe a space equal to the difference in volume be tween water and ice, so that when the water freezes it occupies the space re served for it, instead of exerting its force on the pipe and bursting it. This is Dractically carried out by passing through the water pipe a small India tuhe, specially made for the purpose, aid of such diameter that the space in side is a little more than equal to the increase in , volume of the ice. The India rubber tube is always kept full of air so that when the water freezes it finds the necessary space for expansion, for by compressing the air tube it dis- Dlaces the air and takes its place. W ben the ice melts the tube again expands, becomes filled with air and is ready for another froat, and so on for any number of times without requiring attention. STEAMBOAT8.
