The New Law Battery.

Our cuts Figs. 1 and 2 represent the latest form of the Law battery, in which the negative element is a double cylinder of carbon, one within the other, and thus exposing a large surface for action. The advantages of the new form of construction lie in the fewer number of parts and in bolting the negative element to the cover instead of sealing it by cement as heretofore, thereby getting a more durable and better fastening. Because of the large quantity and surface of the negative element, the battery, it is claimed, holds up under hard work or when overworked quite as long as those batteries containing manganese or other substances to accomplish depolarization by chemical action.
