pleto and comprehensive revlow of this
valuable report, nor 1b such within our
province, but a few words to show
tho nature and scope of tho work
would not be amiss. The first section
of this report Is devoted to tho geog
raphy of tho region, Involving a dis
cussion of tho topography, drainage
and climate, statistics being used in
cases whore the same will make the
subject clear. Then follows a com
pleto exposition on the geology of that
part, of tho state, both descriptive and
economic, tho-latter being perhaps of
more Interest to tho ordinary reader,
than the former for the reason that
the subject of mineral resources is
better understood than the various
formations of rock.
Another section Is devoted to water
resources, both those known as sur
face water's and underground as well.'
This information is of the utmost im
portance in a state in which so much
depends upon the water supply in coni
, neptjpn with stock raising and agrl-.
In conclusion the report takes up
the matter of agriculture in this par
tfo'ultir section, devoting considerable;
space' fa the adaptability of the region

years ago, entertained Dr. Bessey dur
lng his stay in Chicago. He is now a
successful manufacturer, owning prop
erty valued at nearly '$3,000,000. To
Dr. Bessey his succosb is particularly
interesting because of the fact that
while in school he was obliged to do
all Bort8cjir3ob8 to earn his expenses.
Soon after leaving college he invented
tho predecessor of the now common
dictionary holder. The proceeds of
this Invention formed the nucleus of
his present fortune. At present his
largest interest is in tho steel wind
mill of which he was the original in
ventor. H1b entire success has been
due; to honest industry. Dr. Bessey
quotes this story as indicative of the
value of brains.
On January 1 six papers were pre
sented ono being read by Professor
fieqsey. Onejif the other papers was
read by a member of Dr. fiessoy's first
class, and three other of his earliest
students were present.
Altogether, Dr, Bessey states that he
enjoyed the visits with his friends al
most as much as he did, the business
of the association. '
The meeting was one of the largest
and most successful ever held. The
Notices of absences in Physical Ed
