PERSONAL AND MISCELLANEOUS
A Well-Deserved Honor
•"THE CHAIR of English Literature in •t Armour Institute of Technology, rendered vacant by the call of Prof. F. M. Tisdel to the presidency of the University of Wyoming, has been filled by the appointment of Dr. William A. Colledge, Dean of the American School of Correspondence. This means, of course, a loss to The Technical World, for with this number Doctor Colledge severs his active connection with the editorial board of the magazine. We congratulate Doctor Colledge on the enlarged opportunities opened up to him in his new field as a member of the Faculty of Armour Institute of Technology, and the Institute on securing his services. The Editors hope still to be favored with his able advice on matters connected with the magazine.
Electricity in India
HTHIS GREAT ENERGY, which is *■ the leading feature of the day in nearly all parts of the world, but chiefly in America, has of late years been making gradual progress in the greatest of British possessions in the East.
Commencing from the south, it may be interesting to note how the Government of Mysore has endeavored to improve her state by the use of electricity derived from power from the natural waterfalls of the Cauvery. Gold mining by this great unknown power has already proved a success, and various large extensions and improvements under leading British and American firms are in progress.
The Presidencies of Madras and Bombay, though somewhat late in the field, have at present schemes for the improvement of their capitals; and even the great

Nijam of Hyderabad has sanctioned the use of electricity within his dominions.
Bengal, the greatest Presidency in India, has not been idle, having lately installed electric tramways and lighting, with various other improvements, in her capital, known as the "City of Palaces" in history; and even the Northwest Provinces, since the Durbar of 1903 at Delhi, where the benefits of electricity were seen with advantage, have been stirred to seek to improve their districts.
The great problem of the day. however, lies in irrigation and agriculture; and once a suitable scheme is found, in which cost and maintenance are not too great for practical demonstration, then will India rise to the height of her ambition.—Ernest Charles Deefholtz, Student, American School.
