THE LEAST EXPENSIVE SILO.
The pit silo is gaining so rapidly in favor wherever tried,
and giving sueh excellent results in actual use, that a few words
about its construction should prove acceptable.
The first consideration for success is location. Any point
where the permanent or usual level of the ground water is lielow
the depth of the proposed silo, is safe. Your well will decide
tliis. If the bottom of the silo is aloe (he highest point at which
water will stand in the well you will not he troubled with water

of the top of our siio. Fill this tnneh with concrete and rock

of lumber (old lumber will do) about 1 feet long, to cover the
inside of the wall when placed side by side on end, Drive these
pieces down close inside the concrete ring so as to make a form
and then build your wall at least two feet above the surface
of the ground. An outside form is not necessary if you have
enough rubbi.-h or rock to hold the concrete, for the dirt when

Eleven parties will be put in the field this year, and as in the
past special heed will be given to the investigation of the resources
of those districts which arc tributary to the several routes that
wive been advocated for the proposed (nivernmcnt railways.
Exploration of New Routes.
A party under the leadership of J. W. P.agley and Theodore
Chapin will undertake the exploration ot the region trmutary
to Talkeetna River and will connect with the surveys oi the liroad
Pass region made last year. 1 his party, consisting ot seven mm
with filteen horses, will go up Matanuska liiver early m .Mine
ind start work near the scene of the new gold discovery on Albert
Creek. It swill penetrate a region now but utile Known, laying
in the headwater country of Talkeetna River. On returning, the
party will survey the region between the headwaters ot .Mata
nuska and Copper rivers that has been advocated as a railway
n exploration of the region lying between Lake i lark on
the east land and tin' Iditarod district on the west wilt be under-
aken by R. II. Sargent and Philip . Smith. Here there is a
.cit of country over 100 miles in width which is almost an entire
blank on the map. 1 he party, made up ot seven men, wiui
twentv horses, will lollovv a route thai nas geen suggesicu nar a
railway into the grcar Kuskolwim basin.
A. (1. Maddrcn will invest igage the gold placer districts tri
butary to the lower Kiiskokwim. lie will ascend ldaarod Kivcr,
by canoe, portage across the divide to reach the Kuskovvim, and
visit the Anniak, Tulukasak, and Cnodnews Ray placer districts.
cphen 1!. Capps and C. . t.ilhn will carry ttie geologic
and topographic surveys across Skolai Pass into the White b.ver
basin and thence to the international boundary. This is also a
region where railway building has been considered. .Mr. . apps
will give special attention to the investigation of the newly
liscovered gold districts in the t hisana basin. 1 his work is an
extension ot previous reconnaissance surveys in mis nem.
Detailed Surveys of Cold and Copper Hiuiiirts.
A detailed base map will be made of part of the Juneau
district, now the mo.-t important gold lode camp in Alaska and
promising to become one of the mod important on the conti
nent. The purpose of the base map is to make possible an ex-

surveys and investigations, expects to leave for Alaska as soonas

devote special attention to "the problems of Quaternary geology,
including the genesis and occurrence of placer deposits. He will
visit the Iditarod and Fairbanks districts and, time permitting,
the Norn.' district. Mr. P.rooks will also join the Mollit part in
Kotsinu district and the Johnson party in the Valdez district
for brief periods of time.
