Model Will Show How Rivers Are Measured. To show the way in which rivers are gagea that is, how the volume of running streams is measured by the United States Geological Sur vey, the exhibit maintained by the Survey at the Panama-Pacific Ex position, in San Francisco, will in clude a display of automatic gages, run by electricity, which record the fluctuating heights of water of an artificial river one flowing through a tank.
