The wheel is a very narrow one, with a groove divided at regular intervals into buckets or compartments. A cap fits on at the point where the water is let in. and closing the compartment at the other end water packs it. A stream flowing through an aperture but one-sixteenth one-sixteenth one-sixteenth of an inch in diameter? and with the pressure derived from the Holly works, is sufficient to run a sewing machine. In a recent experiment experiment the wheel received the water from the Holly pipes through a seven-sixteenth seven-sixteenth seven-sixteenth inch opening land ran a meat cutter with great rapidity.! The invention can be used in any place where the Holly water supply system has been introduced, and is ap plicable to the running of all light chinery. W-W''- W-W''- W-W''- W-W''- ;"
