Aecording to the desjription, i'our lateral aperturas near the lower end oí' the candle communieate f.ora tho outside with intemal longitudinal passages, so as to admit air. By thi arrangement, it is claimed, upward curren tí of air will be formed in the paasugi ■., which, issuing in close proxinaity to tl.e tiivrae, will produce moru perfect combustión and inciease the qu;mtity ot hght given out by the candle. The longitudinal passages may eit-er extend nearly up to tho tip oí' the candle or may púas directly through it.
