The United States Government Is
not satisfied with what Is known
about the evaporation of water from
the soil, particularly in connection
with Irrigation, says W. T. Stanley
In the July 1'opular Mechanics Mag

of water losses through this cause
has a bearing on the success of an
Irrigation project, and as various
kinds of soil are differently affect
ed, It la essential for government
engineers to know Just where they
stand on this subject. As it Is more
