A correspondent writes to FIRE AND WATER that the Hersey Manufacturing company has been awarded the contract for all the meters that will be needed for Columbus, Ohio, which will probably amount to nearly 10,000 and are being shipped at the rate of seventy-five per day. They are principally of the three-quarter-inch size of the Model F type. All meters larger than one-inch are of the rotary and Torrent types.
