THE HANDBOOK APPRECIATED

THE HANDBOOK APPRECIATED.

The Engberg Electric and Mechanical Works, St. Joseph, Mich., writes: “We like the handbook, which is very complete in every detail, and of good assistance to us in soliciting orders.” The new waterworks system at Dillon Mont., on being tested, gave a pressure of 105 pounds on the one evening. On the next morning, however, there neither was pressure nor was there water in the reservoir. The city refused to accept the system from the contractors. The reason for the failure is at present unknown. It is new thought there is a large leak in the main where it comes from the river. If so. it will be weeks or even months before the leak can be repaired, as the river is now at high water. If not, there must be leakage in the city.

Dear Sir:—Your “Hand Book of Water Works Statistics and Fire Department Equipment” is received. It is a work which I would not be without.

It seems to be thoroughly up to date, and should be invaluable to anyone interested in fire departments or water supply. Yours truly,

D. J. SWBNIE,

Fire Marshal,
