This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1909 edition. Excerpt: ... early Fall. The International Spring Wheel Company of Cleveland has been incorporated under the laws of Ohio for $25,000. H. L. Olmstead is the chief incorporator. A. J. Weatherhead, vice-president of the Cleveland Faucet Company, didn't yell when a pickpocket stole his purse with $150 in it while he was standing on the public square.

The flame would be applied to the crack inside, melting and fusing the metal. The crevice would then be filled in with metal. The same company has offered to use the flame to cut away the mass of twisted steel girders in the wrecked bridge over the St. Lawrence River at Quebec which collapsed some months ago. This mass, weighing thousands of tons, still hangs from the bridge abuttments. A recent test made of the flame was when it was used to mend the arm of the Brown hoist radial drill, the largest in the world. The arm is a bar of steel seven feet six inches long. The break was mended in five hours so that it is now as strong as before and it is only 3/128 of an inch out of true.--S. Mc. Cleveland, Ohio, June 7, 1909. DETROIT, MICH. June 7, 1909.
