tribute! hy the hydrographic survey
at Washington. This bulletin follows
closely on one recently published on the
same subject by the United States
agricultural experimental station. The
paper consists of nearly one hundred
pages, illustrated by excellent half
tono engravings. This is the first
bulletin written on the subject of
windmills. The ingenious way in
which some of the farmers of Ne
braska have made their own windmills
for grinding grain, irrigation and other
purposes, is well known. There are en-
ravings of good windmills which were
built for not more than seventy-five
cents, not counting labor. It contains
twenty-seven full page engravings, and
twenty-five other illustrations. It dis
cusses the water problem in general,
artesian wells, rivers, method of raising
water hy means of windmills, current
wheels, etc. The bulletin can be had
by writing to the hydrographic survey
