Buffalo Steam Pump Company.
The very complete exhibit of the Buffalo Steam Pump Company, Buffalo, N. Y,, consisted of their regular line of steam pumps, independent condensers, etc., with which we have from time to time made our readers acquainted. Though not getting in their work in an apparent effort to fill the big tank, they had a tank of their own, and in their space an exhibit that was bound to get attention. This is in the shape of a hydraulic ram of unusual proportions, getting rid, in one way and another, of a large volume of water, and capable, it is said, of raising 95,000 gallons in twenty-four hours. This was sure to attract attention, because it is out of the common, and makes some noise. There was also shown one of the smallest rams ever seen. The man in charge of this exhibit expresses himself as discouraged at the current ignorance in relation to this inexpensive and comparatively old way of raising water, and thought seriously of printing on suitable cards for distribution an answer to the question, “ What makes the thing go?”
