A NEW SAFETY LAMP. Mr. William Davies, engincdrivcr, 9, Aigyle-ter- race, Llwynypia, has patented an invention for extin- guishing the light when the safety lamp is being un- screwed or opened. The apparatus, which is very simple in construction, is attached inside at the hot. tom of the case and to the wick tube of the lamp pot. The light is instantly put out when the oil pot is being unscrewi'd. The cost of the mechanism and of fixing it to the lamp is about one shilling. Mr. Davies, it appears, has spent considerable tillle upon his patent during the past couple of years. It would really be most interesting for a man of all inventive turn of mind to see the large number of various safety lamps that have been invented during the past 50 years. There is a most unique_ collection of such lamps in the possession of Mr. Williams, proprietor of the Cam- brian Safety Lamp Works, Aberdare, and some of the lamps exhibit considerable ingenuity.
