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:-
Machines and parts thereof
Locomotives and locomobiles
Three years later the first of these items had already reached £25,000,000, and the export of bicycles, motorcars, and motor-buses, 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.
