Tmjnovcd Wason Brake. Perry Dick-'
son, of Blooming Valley, Pa, has taken'
measures to secure a patent for a very
simple and excellent brake for wagon3i
and carriages. It simply consists in con-
necting double cranks to the inner end
of the pole or shaft of a carriage or wag-
on, and connecting the cranks to a fric-
tion brake for the face of each weel, in,
such a manner that thc least backing up.
of the draught animals brings the brakes
up against the face of each wheel, and so
presses them that they cease to revolve,
and merely slide. It is a useful improve-1;
