Mr. Stock employs an entirely new- principle in his machine. Instead of stirring up great quantities of dust as most of the machines novr in use do, his appliance gathers the dirt by suction and deposits it in a barrel shaped container. The action of the machine generates an electrical current that is bronght to play on tue accumulated dirt, and in the form of an intense heat and the rubbish is burned as fast as ic is gathered.
