. excellent invention for the reduction of friction in
machinery has at length been introduced in our city.—
It consists of a lined box, suitable for all revolving and
sliding motions in the various kinds of machinery,where
great weight or speed are applied; these b reduce
friction in a remarkable degree, requiring b oxe s te oil,
and are warranted entirely free from the objections
found with those now in use.
These lined boxes , have been introduced in many of
the Eastern Rail Roads, and in various manufacturing
establishments in that section of country, to which the
limits of an advertisement will not allow us to refer,and
nearly thirty wellknownsuperintendents,engineers,ma
chinists and enoine builders in the cast certify that, "in
the use of these boxes, friction is reduced in a remark
able degree; oil is required only in small quantities, and
the wear is hardly perceptible, dering a period in which 1
a hard metal box of the same thickness would be worn
out; journals running in these boxes attain a smoother
surface than they have seen on those which have been
run in any other box." They also certify "that the pa-
tentee of this improvement has received the highest a
ward of the /Massachusetts Charitable Mechanic's Asso
ciation, for specimens of these boxes, (some of which
