Rev. Father Nugeut of the College
Hill Catholic church spoke at Ashland
Sunday night on "Prevailing Miscon
ceptions of Catholic Doctrines." The
hall was crowded with non-Catholics,
who expiessed themselves as highly
pleased: The lecture lasted two hours.
It was eloquent and instructive and
made a very favorable impression.
I have been asked, "Why is it that
land in your part is higher in price
than in any other part of the county?"
The reason is that the farmers here
put up fine improvements on their land
instead of investing their money in
banks. Next, we have churches and
school houses in every direction, which
makes a very favorable impression on
new comers, and last of all, we have
the best of land for farming.

Schroeder, who so ably fought for the

blessings of all the friends of Mr. and
Mrs. Schroeder. C. S.

The following is a simple method
for testing water: "Into a ground
glass stoppered, perfectly clean bottle,
put live ounces of water to be tested.
To the water add ten grains of granu
lated sugar. Cork tight and set in a
window exposed freely to light, but
not to the direct rajs of the sun. Do
not disturb the bottle, and keep the
temperature as near 70 degrees F. as
possible. If the water contains or
aanic matter, within 4S hours an
abundance of w hitish specks will be
seen floating around, and the more
organic matter the more specks. In a
week or ten days, if the water is very
bad, the odor of rancid butter will
be noticed on removing the stopper.
The little speck will settle to the bot
tom, where they appear as white flocu-
lent masses. Such water should not
be used for potable purposes."
