Herrlck Is urging is faBt gaining pop

method for u farmer to pay or! a loan

The Washington Irving Is regarded
by experts as the finest modern ex-
ample of marine architecture applied
to vessels designed for the navigation
of Inland waters. The plans of the
vessel were drawn after a long series
of experiments conducted by the ar
chitects In the great fresh-water tank
nt the v University ot Michigan. As t
result of these tests tho architects
nnd engineers designed a vessel large
enough to accommodate 7,000 passen
gers and at the same tlmo of a draft
so small as to permit It to pass
through the narrow channels nnd com

reaches of the Hudson. The steamer
Is 41 G feet in length, tne beam over all

engineers are especially Interested In
