V., has made contract to place in position and have in running order by March 15 one of his patent steam generators. The generator is an upright boiler, warranted to do three times the work of the ordinary marine boiler with the same fuel. Mr. Ward agrees in his contract not to ask for a cent of remuneration until the boiler has been tried and accepted.
