3. he combination of the two tubesG J,
there is a current of air passing through G, which has a tendency to keep the wick-tube cool. On account of this arrangement the A wick-tube cannot conduct heat down into the of a space, 0, between them, having a narrow fountain A, so as to vaporize the oil therein, passage, e, to increase the rapidity of the draft against the sides of the flame, s
tially as and for the purpose herein set forth. 4.

The wick K may be raised and lowered by the usual serrated wheel, a a".
I do not claim, broadly, the employment or use of two tubes, G J, placed one within the other to supply the flame with air, nor do I claim an air passage encompassing the fountam of the lamp; but,
Having thus described my invention, What do claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is p 1. The tube G, made of metal, with its metal deflector H insulated by plaster-of-paris or ducting cement, or made of ing supplied with a requisite quantity of air at its base, and by a current which passes around the fountain A, to keep its contents cool, as herein described.
