Db Lamab, Idaho, Sept. 20,1901. THE WATER QUESTION SOLVED AGAIN. V» The writer spent a pleasant evening in Dewey, last week, with a gentleman who does not wish bis name mentioned to the public at present, who has been studying for some time on the water question and has his plans well ander way, and expects to revolutionise the business of raising water. Leaving out his technical terms and patent office phrases, his plan is to erect a stand pipe of suitable height over the sup ply of water, in the bottom of which is a large packing box and gland through which can pass a train of buckets. Beneath this stand pipe and to one side will be a shive or pulley which will be in line with the packing box, and also another on top of the stand pipe. These shives will be large enough so that backets will go np through the stand pipe and down outside. His train of buckets are flanged top and bottom so that when in a straight line are like a tube or piston, and hinged together on one side in such a manner as to pass smoothly through the pack ing in the bottom of the stand pipe without great leakage, and open in passing around the shives. sufficient to fill and discharge. Each alternate backet is headed top and bottom and filled with compressed air at sufficient pressure to withstand external pressure when submerged at a depth of the stand pipe's height. After the train of buck ets is in place and the packing adjusted in the packing box, by tightening or loosening the gland, he proposes to fill the stand pipe with water. The weight of the train of buckets will be more tbau the specific gravity of those in side. The buckets filled with water will raise from the bottom of the stand pipe to the top without any resistance except friotion, which will be small, for water in water has no weight. The bouancy of the buckets filled with com pressed air rising through the water in the stand pipe is to supply the power to lift the water filled buckets, from tbe sump to tbe stand pipe and from the top of the water in the stand pipe over the shive to where it discharges. These lifts are very short, as they need be only the diameter of the wheels. The small loss of water in the stand pipe oan easily be supplied at tbe top, where the buckets discharge into the flume or penstock. Tbe shaft bearing the upper shive is provided with a break to regulate tbe speed, and where the system is used to uuwater mines the break may be actuated by a float in tbe sump. When using this system as a source of power, he discharges the water at great height into a penstock, at the bot tom of which is an ordinary water wheel, discharging into a samp under the stand pipe, so that the same water can be used over again, except when driving ships at sea, or where economy of water is not necessary. His peculiar form bf over-lapping, self-adjusting packing, telescoping chime buckets, etc., show considerable ingenuity. Bat a detail description, without seeing his drawings, gives our readers but slight conception of this invention. 14: all Why do people give advice? Vice is a habit gone to seed.
