Two New Yankee Inventions. Ramie and Lactitis
American Catholic Quarterly Review
Invention, Industry, Steam-power
Reports on 'two remarkable inventions, of which we shall hear something more in this country before long'. The first is 'the use of ramie fibre as a material for the manufacture of steam pipes', and the second is a process by which 'artificial ivory is to be made, in the future, out of milk'.
