Otico again our city bus the walei
question to deal with. Every jear, at
least once and sometimes oftener, it U
found necessary to turn thu creek Into
tho wells in order to supply a sufficient
amount of water for both lawn nnd
drinking purposes, nnd especially is
this noticeable tho latter part of July
and tho month of August whou tho
creok water is thu most unlit for use.
This is something thu city lias had to
contend with almost every year, aud
tho quicket something is done to secure
a sutitciont supply of puro wnter for
our citizen's uso tho better. This week
J. F. Webber of Oxford was in the city
figuring with an object of Inducing tho
city to bore a well to tho depth of tour
hundred feet, or until a supply of wa
ter sufficient for uso was struck. His
price was ono dollar per foot or four
hundred dollars providing water could
not bo struck short of four hundred
foot and if Urttck short of that ho is to
have one dollar por foot for each foot
in depth and tho city to pay cxponso of
shipping his tools ono way. Ho ex
pressed the opinion that plenty of wa
ter couid be scoured as soon as the well
was once through tho ledgo of rock
which underlays this country, which
opinion was based upon his experience
with other wells ho has put down in
Nebraska. Now, whiio $100 may seem
quite a sum of money for our city to
expend in trying to got a supply of wn.
tor at present, it is a sum that looks
very insipuiliccnt whou tho health ami
fire protection of our city is at stake.
It is something that must bo dono
sooner or later and why not do It nt
ouco. If tho city ban not enough mon
ey to carry tho project through, wo
venture to say enough could bu raised
by subscription to pay one-half tho ex
pense o say, and we believe the ma
jority of our citizens will concur with
us, if there is enough money In tho city
treasury to sink n well four hundred
feet, under a guarantee of plenty of
water, sink it at once aud let tho water
question bu forever settled. If there is
not enough money to do it raise what
can be hnd by subscription and let tho
city pay tho balanco, which it could
surely do. Ono thing is certniu, tho
present supply of water will never bo
A delegation of ladies ropresonting
tho W. C. T. U. of this city waited on
tho city council last evening with the
object in view of having a curfew or
dinance passed which would keep
young boys nnd girls off tho streets
nights. Tho council seem to bo of the
opinion that whllo a eurfow law would
bo all right wero there a policeman on
each block or two to enforce it, but in
a city liKo Rod Cloud where enough
money cannot be hnd to pay a city
marshal a deceut salary, and, ho must
be compelled to depend upon business
men to contribute and do tho work of
ulght watch and polico at tho same timo
in order to make a living, it looks us
though a eurfow ordinance would bo
somewhat of a burden to that officer.
Tho business men contribute tho larger
portion of tho salary of tho night watch
for tho benefit of having their places of
business watched at night and might
enter strenuous objections to paying a
night watch who would bo kid-hunting
in somo other part of tho town nnd lot
ting some ono rob their stores. Under
present conditions a curfew law would
be ineffective with tho oxcoptiouoLn
few small boys who might bo intimidat
ed by it, and until tho city is ablo to
pay a policeman for this special duty
such a thing would bo detrimental to
tho business housos.
During the rain storm of last Friday
night tho residonco of James Keagle,
living south of tho river wns struck by
IlKhtning. The bolt entered the stove
pipo which goes through tho roof of
the kitchen and descending tore out
tho rear portion of tho stove and thon
entered tho floor bulging up the boards
and tearing the nails out. Mn. Keagle
was standing near the stove holding
the tea kettle in ber hand and the bot
tom was blown out of tho vessel and
the woman and her husband and a child
wero made unconscious. A jug of coal
oil in tho room was cracked and tho
contents ran out but fortunately did
not ignite. A small amount of hay
which was near tho stovo was burned
hut fortunntoly wont out without sot
ting fire to the building. Tho ones who
wero shocked gained cousoiousness
