In Chicago Professor Bessey looked
up apparatus for his department. He
tound a firm able and willing to build
apparatus from designs which ho will
supply. This ha3 been a diflicuii. mat
ter to manage, most firms not being
willing to make any other than their
own styles of apparatus. The depart
ment of botany has had for some time
a number of plans of new apparatus
which have had to wait for such an
Dr. C. E. Bessey spent a good share
of his time in Washington in the
careful examination of the work of the
several botanical divisions in the de
partment of agriculture. Excellent
work Is now being done in at least half
a dozen divisions, employing In the
aggregate from twenty-five to thirty
trained botanists, where twenty years
ago there was but one man who re
ceived any attention or support. The
secretary of agriculture is much
pleased with the results which these
botanical workers aro -bringing out
year by year, and -t is not too mucn
to say that it is largely due to them
that tho scientific world today holds
the department In such high regard.

This machine was first spoken of by
Dr. Bc3soy, and plans were submitted
to hlra by Mr. P. J. O'Gara, who after
ward was put In charge of the con
struction. Tho purpose of tho Invention is for
determining and showing the effect of
a force similar to gravity which acts
upon growing plants.
Tho machine proper is kept In mo
tion by a hot air engine which came
from Germany three years ago, but has
never been put in use. Special gas and
water connections havo been made for
the engine, which Is capable of supply
lug fifteen-horse power. So complete
is the engine that it will run night
and day without attention. Tho speed
can also be kept constant.
The fly wheel of the centrifugal ma
chine Is somewhat over three feet In
width and will be connected with the
engine by a belt.
