After a short probation, during which he was, on account of his physical strength, employed at the anvil, he was installed in Dr. Werner Siemens’s laboratory, helping Dr. Esselbach, Robert Sabine and others in the re-determination of the Siemens mercurial unit of electrical resistance. He also assisted in making determinations of the conducting power of other metals, besides investigations on the distribution of magnetism in bars. . .
