Not illustrated. 1883 edition. Excerpt: ...low down on one side, while on the upper side is a tube, open at both ends and projecting into the can; this tube contains a piston which, when pushed downward, throws the Buhach out of the distributing tube in a fine shower, while a spring again pushes the piston upward in its proper place as soon as the pressure from above has been removed.
