FRODSHAM. I LOCAL INVENTION. The following particulars have been supplied us by Messrs. Holies and Young, Patent Agents, of 55, Chancery-lane, London, locally represented by Mr. C. W. Johnson, 2, Godstall Chambers, Chester, of a patent which has been granted to Messrs. J. J. Crosfield (Frodsham) and G. Dale (Warring- ton) ;oml. Aspirating gas, &c. Liquid is caused to flow from one vessel to another under a constant head, the apparatus chiefly being employed to aspirate gases or liquids at a uniform rate which may be measured. The vessels are such that, when connected, any fall of liquid in is accompanied by an equal rise. The suitably con- tracted exit of a nexibie pipe is attached to a cord passing over a pul'ny and connected to a float, so that liquid flows from the upper vessel under a constant head and therefore at a uniform rate, which may be measured by providing the cord with an indicator working against a graduated scale marked to give direct reading of quantities, times, or both. The apparatus is employed to aspirate gases or liquids through a pipe, and the gases, &c., may be discharged in the known manner through a sampling-pipe by means of the movable vessel which also acta as an air seal when the vessel is emptied. YOUNG MARINE'S SAD END.-Looal inhabitants will learn with regret the sad end of a young Marine named George Jones, of H.M.S. Skirmisher, which was andiorod at Swanage with a flotilla of torpedo destroyers of the Plymouth division. Deceased, who was only twenty-five years old, had been six years and six weeks in the service, and his home was at. Frodsham. It appears that last week a party of men had been on liberty for the even- ing, and the boat in which they were to return to the ship was at the Pier ready at 10 p.m. The coxswain in charge of the cutter gave them about five minutes grace, and, thinking he had all aboard, ordered the men to shove off. They had proceeded about 50 to 60 yards, when the boat was hailed by some men who had ar- rived late. The coxswain put back, and only one man got into the boat, having climbed down the piles, and while the boat was drawing near someone shouted out that a man named Jones (a Marine) was in tho water. Tliey searched for him for half an hour and returned to the ship, reporting the matter to the captain, who sent Mr. Redo (the 1st Lieutenant) with a boat's crew to search, whioh he did for an hour unsuccessfully. At daybreak another attempt was made, and the body was recovered lying on the sand in about 12 feet of water just where deceased had fallen. The body was landed and conveyed to the pier store, where it was laid, awaiting the enquiry, which was held on Thursday week at the Royal Vic- toria Hotel. before Dr. C. H. Parkinson, coroner for East Dorset. From the evidenoo of a stoker, it appeared that he and deceased went on shore together, and had several drinks of beer. They were late getting down to the pier, owing to their stopping at s, publio-bouse on their way. On their arrival at the pier the ship's boat had shoved off. He did not remem- ber wi-bother he shouted or called out that the deceased was in the water. He had a faint recollection of their going on the pier together, but everything elso was a blank.—Lieut, Rede. the 1st Lieutenant of H.M.S. Skirmisher, said dooeased bore an excellent ohara.cter.-A ver- dict, of "Acoidlontal death" was returne d -T,no interment took plaoe at Portland with full t noral botuvuai
