TEST OF NOTT ENGINE. A report states that the new second-size Nott, high-efficiency engine of the piston valve design, ordered some time ago by the officials of Indianapolis, was given a thorough test by Chief Coots of that city’s fire department, a few days ago. B. C. Wheat, clerk of the Indianapolis department, took the records, which are given below.
