FILTRATION IN THE ORIENT. United States Consul-General, W. H. Michael, writing from Calcutta, shows that the New York Continental Jewell Filtration company continues to make its mark abroad. He says: “Coimbatore is the name of the town at which will be erected by the Madras government the new agricultural college, to cost over $100,000. The place has been growing rapidly of late, and is soon to have new waterworks that will cost $150,000, which has been granted by the government. A loan of $68,000 is also offered by the government to Coimbatore to carry out important municipal improvements. I understand that the Jewell F’iltcr com natty, an American concern, has the contract for putting in the waterworks.”
