The Globular Fountain





Make a hollow globe, of copper or lead, and of a size adapted to the

quantity of water that comes from a pipe (hereafter mentioned) to

which it is to be fixed, and which may be fastened to any kind of

pump, provided it be so constructed, that the water shall have no

other means of escape than through the pipe. Pierce a number of small

holes through the globe, that all tend towards its centre, and annex

it to the pipe that communicates with the pump. The water that comes

from the pump, rushing with violence into the globe, will be forced

out at the holes, and form a very pleasing sphere of water.
