Mr. William F Sullivan, a graduate of the American School, is the engineer in charge of an electric plant situated in Mesa, Arizona. This is the pumping plant for the Consolidated Canal Company's ranch of 6,000 acres, nine miles distant, and furnishes irrigation to the surrounding country, largely a desert. The plant also pumps and furnishes light for the city of Tempe, six miles away, and, in addition, lights Mesa City, three miles distant.

We Are Glad To See that Alfred H. Wheeler, a student in the Architectural Course of the American School of Correspondence, has gone into business for himself as an architect, his headquarters being at 816 Globe Building, St. Paul, Minn. He writes that he has left the firm that he has been with for the past four years, and that they approve of his step and have given him their hearty good will and support.

We wish all success to Mr. Wheeler.

Money Well Spent

\Y/F are often struck with the beauty "and intrinsic value of the Trade Catalogues that come to our desk. Many of them represent the highest grade of mechanical and typographical skill, and are evidently prepared without regard to cost. In many cases they rank far above mere commercial advertising pamphlets and are in fact scientific treatises replete with practical working hints and useful information of permanent value. The evolution of all the latest triumphs of mechanical and engineering skill and inventive genius, might be traced from these sources alone. The enterprise which puts out advertising matter of this high character is in itself a guarantee of efficient and reliable service. The "*" *",,'%. grade advertiser is the safest to do business with, as he is the best qualified to serve commercial needs.
