Double Turbine Wheel.
To the Public of Canada.
OSHAWA, ONT., March 8, 1872.
The Genuine James Leffel Double Turbine,
Make the following challenge to the manufacturers of ANY WHEEL now made in Canada,
Six Thousand Dollars ($6,000), and the party accepting the challenge to do the same, the money to be held subject to the award of the Judges. The wheels to be tested in a flour milí, driving the same runs of stone, grinding the same wheat, and having the same number of square inches of opening to receive the water, the amount of water discharged to be the measure of the amount used by each wheel.
The judges to be non-residents of Canada, and to be thoroughly well informed in the mode of testing the power of turbine wheels,-each party to choose one judge and the two to choose a third.
The owners of the winning wheel to have their money refunded them, and the loser's money to go towards establishing a mechanical free library in any town in Canada named by the owner of the successful wheel.
The wheels to be tested at %, 73,72, 3, 4, and full gate.
Each party to give good and sufficient bonds, to the amount of $4,000, that the loser shall pay the entire expenses of the test.
There are some wheels that give very good results with full head and full gateage, which entirely fail under partial head and partial gateage. Such wheels in our climate, where the water-powers are affected by both cold and drought, are of no practical value.
We claim that we are the only makers of the genuine JAMES LEFFEL DOUBLE TURBINE WHEEL in Canada, and that it is without a rival in the world in practical results. More than 6,000 of these Wheels are now in operation in Canada and the United States.
The sales of no other wheel ever yet introduced on this continent exceed one-sixth this number. Our wheel has been thoroughly tested in Great Britain, and has fully maintained the reputation it has gained in Canada and the United States, as the most economical water-wheel in practical operation ever yet introduced.
We are now publishing a new descriptive water-wheel pamphlet, containing 150 pages of valuable matter, which will be sent free to all applicants. For further information, address,
F. W. GLEN,
Oshawa, Ont. N.B.-We desire to call attention to the following certificate :
SPRINGFIELD, Ohio, Dec. 25, 1868. We take pleasure in informing the public of Canada, that we have sold and furnished Mr. F. W. GLEN, of Oshawa, Ontario, Patterns, Formers, Drawings, Gauges, and all other necessary information to build our celebrated Double Turbine Water-wheel, invented by James Leffel, and known as the “Leffel Wheel.” We have also obligated ourselves to furnish the same facilities for manufacturing to no other parties in Canada. Without the information we have given to Mr. Glen, no one can successfully build our wheels, and we advise parties in Canada to purchase our wheels of no other manufacturer. Mr. Glen's facilities are unsurpassed, and we feel sure that he will build a wheel that will give perfect satisfaction. We therefore com. mend him to the public of Canada with entire confidence, feeling sure he will manufacture a wheel in all respects equal to our own.
