ARTHUR POWELL DAVIS, CLASS OF '82. Mr. Davis was born in Macon county, Illinois, February 9, 1861. He is a graduate of the Junction City high school and of the State Normal School of Kansas. Immediately after graduation he accepted an appointment as assistant topographer on the United States geological survey. He was promoted to full position in 1884, and for ten years was almost exclusively engaged in geodetic triangulation and astronomical work and topographic mapping, covering large areas in Northern New Mexico, Arizona and Southern California. By putting in odd hours, at night sessions, he completed the course for the degree of bachelor of sciences in the Corcoran Scientific School in 1888. In 1894 he was assigned to duty in the division of hydro• graphy, and for a year and a half travelled almost constantly through the arid regions establishing stations for stream measurement and investigating various hydrographic problems, inspecting irrigation works, etc.

At present he is in charge of all of the stream measurements conducted by the United States geological survey. In November, 1895, he was detailed to make an expert investigation and plan a system of irrigation for the Gila River Indian Reservation in Arizona. His report on this work was published by order of the United States Senate. Other publications by Mr. Davis are “Tables for Obtaining Differences of Altitude," pub. lished, in 1893; “Irrigation near Phænix, Arizona," “River Heights for 1896,” and “Reports of Progress of Stream Measurements,” the last being part IV of the eighteenth annual report of the United States geological survey. Besides his reg. ular work of the supervision of “Stream Measurement," Mr. Davis is engaged on a sanitary investigation of the Potomac basin, which, when complete, will be published as a “Water Supply and Irrigation Paper" of the geological survey.

We are in receipt of the volume on “Stream Measurements," which contains over four hundred large pages of most valuable reports on the results of his investigations in the Southern and Southwestern States.

Mr. Davis was married to Miss Elizabeth Brown in 1888. She has superior mathematical ability and is deeply interested in the work which Mr. Davis is doing.

A Piano at a Nominal Price. Chicago's largest music house, Lyon & Healy, have bought for a fraction of its cost, the entire stock of Lyon, Potter & Co. These splendid pianos are offered without reserve until all are sold. In this stock are a number of new Steinway pianos, and hundreds of new and secondhand pianos, including instruments of the following well-known makes: Sterling, Huntington, A. B. Chase, Vose, Fischer, Weber, Chickering, G. W. Lyon, etc. In square pianos there are fine-toned instruments at $25, $40, $60, and upwards. In upright pianos neat instruments at $100, $120, $140, $150, $165, $190, $200 and upwards. In baby grands some nice specimens at $250 and upwards. Nearly all these pianos were intended to sell for at least double these clearing sale prices. A good plan would be to order a piano, leaving the selection of it to Lyon & Healy. However, they will send list and full particulars upon application. Any piano not proving entirely satisfactory may be returned at their expense. Address simply, Lyon & Healy, Chicago. Distance is no obstacle in taking advantage of this remarkable chance to obtain a piano, for in proportion to the saving to be made the freight charges are insignificant. Write today so as to avoid disappointment.
