The Hydraulic Dancer

Procure a little figure made of cork, which you may dress as your

fancy dictates. In this figure place a small hollow cone made of thin

leaf brass.

When the figure is placed on a jet d'eau, that plays in a

perpendicular direction, it will be suspended on the top of the water,

and perform a great variety of amusing motions.

If a hollow ball of very thin copper, of an inch diameter, be placed

on a similar jet, it will remain suspended, turning round, and

spreading the water all about it.
