Windmills For Kloctrio lighting.
Some time ago the inedibilities
of windmills for domestic electric
lighting were mentioned in scioneo ,
und lately the experiment has
boon prnetieully tried. Prof. lilyth
rend before- the Glasgow Philosophical
society a paper on the .subject , in which
he describes an experiment which ho
made last summer. the lighting of a
cottage in which ho spent his vacation
by a dynamo driven by a windmill , and
charging u btorage battery. The wind
mill used was an old-fashioned type ,
with four arms at right angles to oaoh
other , each of them thirteen feet long.
Tliero was no especial regulating de
vice. The d.\namo was belted directly
to the lly-wheel of the inill.andchargeit
twelve cells of .storage which supplied
the inde-cont lumiM in the cottage.
Prof. IJlylh had never u ed more limn
ton lainpat once , but ho could have
iiied more. With a good breeze , enough
electricity could bo stored in
half a day to supply light for four
evenings of three or four hours uneh.
The lamps u cd were of h-cundlo power.
When charging , the current passed
through a cut-out that would discon
nect thorn from the dynamo when it
ran below a certain speed ; BO the wind
mill couid bo allowed to run all the
time , charging the butlory when the
wind happened to bo htro'ng enough.
The current had boon used to run a
light turning lathe , and Prof. Bl.\th
had begun to nmlco a light carriage'
1)0 run by the stored electricity. The
paper opens to us a Held for ingenuity ,
comfort , and amusement in our home.- , .
Windmills much superior to that described -
scribed can bo readIv ! purchased , a
small dynamo can be bought or built at
little coat , and storage-batteries can bo
purchased or inudu. With them wo
could light our house economically ; our
light would bo bolter , cooler , and
healthier than gas or coal oil lamps ;
wlnlo the current could bo utilized for
running fans , sowing machines , etc.
Indeed , to the average American , with
some spare time and some small in
genuity , thoamusomontand instruction
of sucli a plant would moro than puv
