This Bulletin is issued preparatory to a thorough investigation of the characteristics of the drinking waters of Dakota. A few analyses are given, together with other information that will place this subject before the citizens of Dakota in a manner likely to bring to the Station trustworthy samples of water accompanied by correct and explicit data. Samples of drinking water (good as well as bad) are needed for the completion of this work and all such will receive prompt attention. A few samples from widely separated localities are desired rather than many samples from the same locality. The analyses will be made free of charge, under proper restrictions as explained in the accompanying application for analysis, and any desired advice will be cheerfully given. The work in water analysis will be resumed immediately after the 1st of March 1889. It is necessary that samples of water should be sent after that date since water spoils by keeping.
