Cisterns that are' properly con structed and receive rain water from roofs generally afford water of good sanitary quality, but if water of doubtful quality is stored in cis terns the supply is of course not safe for domestic use. Filters used in connection with cisterns are of value in making the water clear but are generally of no value in remov ing disease germs. Many cisterns are divided into two parts by a brick wall, the water being admit ted into one compartment and drawn from the other. In such cis terns the water passes through the brick and in that way is improved in clearness and color, but not gen erally in sanitary quality. (U. S. Geological Survey.) Prince E.
