Mars, June 24, 1873, for an "improvement in ore stamp feeders," namely, "The feeding cylinder I, mounted upon the movable timber H H, substantially as and for the purpose above described," is a claim only for making the timbers movable by mounting them upon rollers, and does not involve a patentable invention.
