E.-MACHINERY IN GERMANY.

The rapid progress in the fabrication of machinery in Germany is best seen from the growth of the German exports as shown by the following table:-

1890. 1895. 1907.
Machines and parts thereof £2,450,000 £3,215,000 £17,482,500
Sewing-machines parts thereof 315,000 430,000 1,202,500
Locomotives and locomobiles
280,000 420,000 1,820,000

Three years later the first of these items had already reached £25,000,000, and the export of bicycles, motorcars, and motor-busses, and parts thereof, was valued at £2,904,000.

Everyone knows that German sewing- machines, motor-bus frames, and a considerable amount of tools find their way even into this country, and that German tools are plainly recommended in English books.
