Since 1870 the electrical industries have been established, employing an enormous amount of power, so that the foregoing percentages are probably very different at the present time, and as a considerable part of the coal used in metallurgy and mines, as also that for domestic water supply, is used for power, we shall not be far wrong in estimating that 300,000000 tons are used annually for making steam. A low estimate of the value of this coal at the place of use would be an average of 2.5o per ton, which gives as the present annual expenditure for steam a sum equal to 7750,000,000 ; from which it will be seen how largely even a small per cent. of saving would add to the wealth of the world.

It is estimated that of the steam-power at present in use in the world, 8o per cent. has been added in the last twenty-five years, so that these figures are none .00 large for the present time.
