Deacon's invention "consists of certain improvements... in apparatus for automatically feeding furnaces with fuel, the mechanism employed being of such simple and effective character that it is not liable to get out of order, while it can be so regulated as to project the fuel onto any portion of the grate-surface, and thus enable a perfectly level fire to be constantly maintained."
