The Hussey bluestone battery which we illustrate in the accompanying figures accomplishes this perfectly, it is claimed, preventing all deposit of copper on the zinc plate which remains bright and clean, the cell giving at the same time a much greater current than the older forms of bluestone battery of the same dimensions, and consequently increasing its field of usefuln
