from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A pipe for the conducting of sewage or drainage: usually a pipe of glazed earthenware with bell-and-spigot joints laid underground. It is distinguished from a soil-pipe in that the latter generally conveys the discharge from privies and water-closets of residences only, and not storm-water from the streets. The soil-pipe is usually a branch into the sewer-pipe.
