A simple compsiB'flndor, costing 11
cents, has enabled a western pipe-layer
to locate a 12-Inch cast-iron pipe bur
led about three feet In stiff adobo soil,
and has saved several days of labor
discing. As described by A. E. Wright,
the finder was a magnetized knit
ting needle having been discard
ed as not sufficiently sensitive. Tho
fibers were glued around the balano
Inc-polnt, and ths needle was so bal
anced as to dip normally about 20 de
grees In order lhat the two ends might
be attracted to the pipe unequally.
The needle was mounted In a cigar box,
with an Index card, and a glass cover
as wind shield. When used, the box
was placed horizontally on Iho ground
In a north and south direction, and
was moved across the supposed lino of
the pipe, readings being taken vvry
two feet and In this way tho location
was determined very accurately. The
deflection was twice as great over a
bell as over the mid-length of a utne.
