HANDBOOK ON ENGINEERING
By HENRY C. TULLEY
T ULLEY’S Handbook treats on many pet theories and aims at the
motto: “Strenuousness is Life.” There is no time now to read all moonzus of the hundreds of good books, each taking up a particular field.
Some one must concentrate them and thus at one stroke give you the best thoughts found in each. Keep you fully informed and save you time for other duties.
Tulley's Handbook does this for you. The modern uses of Light, Heat and Power are so closely allied that it is the duty of one book to cover those fields.
Any one interested in the use of power in any form, or the use of light in any shape, or of heat can by the exper
HANDBOOK ON ENGINEERING, ience of others profit in a liberal measure and get much more from their investment than by ignoring such information. How can you do it? TULLEY'S HANDBOOK does this for you.
If in this way you can get ten (10) per cent more power from your boiler or your engine, or obtain ten (10) per cent less wear in machinery in general, or make your coal go a tenth farther, or make your dynamo produce a tenth more light, or your electric system give ten (10) per cent better efficiency, or your waste steam furnish more heat to your building, think what it means to you in a year.
A man's success is largely due to his ability to learn things, and to put what he knows into practice. TULLEY'S HANDBOOK will give you the facts. Can you afford to go without it? It contains the kind of knowledge that helps men to succeed. When in doubt buy TULLEY'S HANDBOOK. You will make no mistake.

Referring to the figure, you will see that the load is shown in two places in full lines, and in two places in dotted lines. For any one position of the boom, the turning moment is constant for a given load. In

Fly Wheel for Gasoline Engine Question 1: I have designed an 8-H. P. gasoline engine. I want to know what sized fly wheel I should use on this engine, the same being a 6x6 and to run at 800 R. P. M. What diameter, width of face, and thickness of same, the fly wheel to be a 5-spoke style?
Question 2: What will be the approximate weight of wheel?
Question 3: How do you calculate the H. P. of a gasoline engine, size 6-inch bore, 6inch stroke, and 800 R. P. M.?
Question 4: How do you calculate the size and weight of a fly wheel, the H. P. of engine given?-C. S.
Answer 1: From the data which you have given, the diameter of the fly wheel should be 28 inches, width of face 8 inches, and thickness 2 inches.
Answer 2: The weight should be about 350 pounds.
Answer 3: Having given the dimensions of the cylinder and the speed, the only other variable quantity is the working fluid. With gasoline, the average M. E. P. is assumed to be 60 pounds. Applying these values to the formula:

ELECTRICITY MADE SIMPLE
By CLARK CARYL HASKINS
TUST the book for beginners and electrical workers whose opportunities for gaining infor
mation on the branches of electricity have been limited. A book devoid of technicalities. Simple, plain and understandable. There are many elementary books about electricity upon the market, but this is the first one presenting tbe matter in such shape that the layman may understand it, and at the same time, not written in a childish manner. For engineers, dynamo men, firemen, line.nen, wiremen and learners. For study or reference. This little work is not intended for the instruction of experts, nor as a guide for professors. The author has endeavored throughout the book to bring the matter down to the level of those whose opportunities for gaining information on the branches treated have been limited.
Four chapters are devoted to Static Electricity: three each to Chemical Batteries and Light and Power; two each to Terrestrial Magnetism and Electro-Magnetism; one each to Atmospheric Electricity; Lightning Rods; Electro-Chemistry; Applied Electro-Magnetism; Force; Work and Energy; Practical Application of Ohm's Law; also a chapter upon Methods of Developing Electricity, other than Chemical.
The large number of examples that are given to illustrate the practical application of elementary principles is gaining for it a reputation as a textbook for schools and colleges.
