SYNOPSIS

To meet the need for a rain-gage that may be constructed of materials available in any community, it is proposed to make the collector 5.359 inches in diameter so that one-hundredth of an inch of rain in the gage will equal one fluid dram, thus permitting the water to be measured in a commercial graduate such as may be found in drug stores. Exactness in construction is required in but one part, a small brass ring at the top, and the cost is correspondingly lessened. Features shown by experience to be important are retained. Description and illustrations is enough detail to show how to construct the gage are given.
