The above cut shows Grate shut in Section A, and open in Section B. The Levers shown in cut exnd up into the cab of engine, and the remarkable fact remains that the Grate can be cleaned while running at the highest rate of speed, and be kept perfectly clear of clinkers. The long bars in Grate are Water Bars, the short ones are Rocking Bars, both being hollow, as a natural consequence cannot be warped or burned. We claim a saving in fuel of 35 per aent., not considering the great saving on the flues and engine proper. This Grate can be used with or without Water Bars on locomotives, likewise on stationary engines, furnaces and ranges of all kinds; and is now in preferable use on the Lehigh Valley R. R., and unreservedly endorsed by them. This Grate will pay for itself in thirty days, and last for years. It is the only Grate that will burn with equal success hard or soft coal and culm We desire live men in every State to form syndicates all over the United States. Full information will be furnished spplying to AMERICAN WATER BAR GRATE CO. end for endorsements of locomotive engineers.

FRIED. KRUPP, ESSEN, GERMANY. AMERICAN OFFICE, 15 GOLD ST., NEW YORK. Represented by THOMAS PROSSER & SON, P. O. Box, 2,878. LOCOMOTIVE TIRES,
Crank Pins, Piston Rods, Spring Steel, &c. Steel Forgings of all kinds up to 50 Tons Weight.
After a test of over 25 years the "KRUPP TIRE" has proved itself the best in the market.
These Lubricators effect a saving in Oil of from 50 TO 80 PER CENT., and experience show! that the SAVING in OIL and WEAR of MACHINERY will pay for the Lubricator three or four times a year, and that by reason of the perfect Lubrication secured, an engine will HANDLE EASIER, MAKE BETTER TIME, USE LESS FUEL, AND HAUL A LARGER TONNAGE.
Both cups are placed within the cab. The Valve Cup has two sight feed glasses, each of which is connected to the Right and Left Hand Steam Chests, by means of the so-called "tallow pipes, thus securing INDEPENDENT LUBRICATION, TO EACH STEAM CHEST AND CYLINDER FROM ONE CUP. The Oil is shown passing in drops through each Sight-feed Glass to the parts to be lubricated and can be regulated to feed FAST or SLOW. The feed is regular and continuous, going up or down grade, WHETHER PRESSURE IS ON OR OFF, thus securing perfect lubrication at all times.
The valves aud cylinder cups are equiped with valves which may be used as HAND OILERS in case of breakage of glass, and the cups are so constructed that they will FEED TALLOW in the COLDEST WEATHER.
To illustrate the SAVING IN OIL by the use of these Lubricators, we desire to state that a mileage from 250 to 600 miles to one quart for valve and cylinder cup, and from 500 to 1500 miles to HALF PINT for Air Pump Lubricator is a common experience.
These Lubricators are in successful use on about 70 leading roads to whom references will be given We solicit a practical test, and will send one or more Valve and Air-brake Cups to responsible parties on 30 days trial. Detail drawings showing manner of attachment, prices and references to leading roads using the cups cheerfully furnished.

The Automatic Freight Brake
Is essentially the same apparatus as the Automatic Brake for passenger cars, cept that the various parts are one piece of mechanism, and is sold at a very low price. The saving in accidents, flat wheels, brakemen's wages, and the increased speed possible with perfect safety, will repay the cost of its application in a very short time.
Its ap Has proved itself to be the most efficient train and safety brake known. plication is instantaneous; it can be operated from any car in the train, if desired, and should the train separate, or a hose or pipe fail, it applies automatically.
A GUARANTEE is given customers against LOSS from PATENT SUITS on the apparatus sold them.
