The only work published that describes the modern machine shop or manufacturing
plant from the time the grass is growing on the site intended for it until the finished
product is shipped. By a careful study of its thirty-two chapters the practical man
may economically build, efficiently equip, and successfully manage the modern machine
shop or manufacturing establishment. Just the book needed by those contemplating
the erection of modern shop buildings, the rebuilding and reorganization of old ones,
or the introduction of modern shop methods, time and cost systems. It is a book
written and illustrated by a practical shop man for practical shop men who are too
busy to read theories and want facts. It is the most complete all around book of its
kind ever published. It is a practical book for practical men, from the apprentice in
the shop to the president in the office. It minutely describes and illustrates the most
simple and yet the most efficient time and cost system yet devised. Price $5.00



This book has been prepared with special reference to the generation of heat by the
combustion of the common fuels found in the United States, and deals particularly
with the conditions necessary to the economic and smokeless combustion of bituminous
coals in Stationary and Locomotive Steam Boilers.
The presentation of this important subject is systematic and progressive. The ar-
rangement of the book is in a series of practical questions to which are appended
accurate answers, which describe in language, free from technicalities, the several
processes involved in the furnace combustion of American fuels; it clearly states the
essential requisites for perfect combustion, and points out the best methods for furnace
construction for obtaining the greatest quantity of heat from any given quality of
coal. Nearly 350 pages, fully illustrated. Price . . . . . . . . . . $1.00


A complete treatise for all interested in smoke prevention and combustion, being based on the German work of Ernst Schmatolla, but it is more than a mere translation of the German treatise, much being added. The authors show as briefly as possible the principles of fuel combustion, the methods which have been and are at present in use, as well as the proper scientific methods for obtaining all the energy in the coal and burning it without smoke. Considerable space is also given to the examination of the waste gases, and several of the representative English and Amer. ican mechanical stoker and similar appliances are described. The losses carried away in the waste gases are thoroughly analyzed and discussed in the Appendix, and abstracts are also here given of various patents on combustion apparatus. The book is complete and contains much of value to all who have charge of large plants. 194 pages. Illustrated. Price .

This is a practical treatise on the Gasoline and Kerosene Engine intended for the man
who wants to know just how to manage his engine and how to apply it to all kinds of
farm work to the best advantage.
This book abounds with hints and helps for the farm and suggestions for the home
and housewife. There is so much of value in this book, that it is impossible to ade-
quately describe it in such small space. Suffice to say that it is the kind of a book
every farmer will appreciate and every farm home ought to have. Includes selecting
the most suitable engine for farm work, its most convenient and efficient installation,
with chapters on troubles, their remedies, and how to avoid them. The care and
management of the farm tractor in plowing, harrowing, harvesting and road grading
are fully covered: also plain directions are given for handling the tractor on the road.
Special attention is given to relieving farm life of its drudgery by applying power to
the disagreeable small tasks which must otherwise be done by hand. Many home-
made contrivances for cutting wood, supplying kitchen, garden, and barn with water,
loading, hauling and unloading hay, delivering grain to the bins or the feod trough
are included; also full directions for mak ing the engine milk the cows, churn, wash,
sweep the house and clean the windows, etc. Very fully illustrated with drawings of
working parts and cuts showing Stationary, Portable and Tractor Engines doing all
binds of farm work. All money-making farms utilize power. Learn how to utilize
power by reading the pages of this book. It is an aid to the result getter, invaluable

to the up-to-date farmer, student, blacksmith, implement dealer and, in fact, all who can apply practical knowledge of stationary gasoline engines or gas tractors to advan. tage. 530 pages. Nearly 180 engravings. Price . . . . . . . . . . $2.00

written by a man who knows not only how work ought to be done, but who also
knows how to do it, and how to convey this knowledge to others. It is strictly
up-to-date in its descriptions and illustrations. Lathe history and the relations
of the lathe to manufacturing are given; also a description of the various devices
for feeds and thread cutting mechanisms from early efforts in this direction to
the present time. Lathe design is thoroughly discussed, including back gearing,
driving cones, thread-cutting gears, and all the essential elements of the modern
lathe. The classification of lathes is taken up, giving the essential differences of
the several types of lathes, including, as is usually understood, engine lathes,
bench lathes, speed lathes, forge lathes, gap lathes, pulley lathes, forming lathes,
multiple-spindle lathes, rapid-reduction lathes, precision lathes, turret lathes,
special lathes, electrically-driven lathes, etc. In addition to the complete exposi-
tion on construction and design, much practical matter on lathe installation.
care and operation has been incorporated in the enlarged 1915 edition. All
kinds of lathe attachments for drilling, milling, etc., are described and complete
instructions are given to enable the novice machinist to grasp the art of lathe
operation as well as the principles involved in design. A number of difficult
