We eatinot understand why the
public drinking fountain on the corner
is not cpnuected up with tho city
water. This fountain was purchased
and paid for and presented to tho city
with the distinct understanding that
It would be kept full of water. It is
certainly a very useful article and a
tiod send to many a horse and dog.
Tho amount of water tho fountain
takes is very small and (he cost of
keeping it running is comparatively
nothing. Negligence 'eeins to bo (ho
cause of its uon uso and wo would sug
gest that it bo connected up witliout
further delay. Jf it was a good tiling
for the city when it was installed it is
a good thing yet. Myall means let us
uso the fountain.

Ihiin we were years ago and were it
not for the tiiiny season tho city would

Wo believe (hat (heio is a strong
sentiment against Iho expenditure of
more funds for water unless there is
ut least a probibifily of securing
water. Wo all may have our theories
but theories have been tried before
and the end disasleroiis. One thing
i- uvy strange and that is practically
every eltizHii can tell yon whero tlie
water is or ought to be but you do
not hear the well men say anything
and they are tho fellows that are in
If another ditch is to be dug by all
means llnd the water (list. This could
bo easily done by inexpensive tests
and when a body of water is found
thou it is timo enough to putinunoth
or ditch. I lower the time to test is
not now becauso all thb bottom is at
present full of water. The timo to
test is during a dry spell when thesur
face water has been expended.
A comparatively inexpensive and at
the sumo liino sure means of supply is
to replace- tho dam which was washed
away this spring. This should be of a
more permanent character than the
other one and should present a more
cleanly appearance I he effect of
this dam is to keep the bottom full of
water which filters thru the sand and
gravel and enters tho wells at the
pumping station. That method bus
proven itsi-lf successful and when the
dam was in wm had plenty of good pure
water. Tliis would be the cheapest
method and as practical p'uhupa us
Another method of solving this
question is to ad voi Use for bids for a
deep well. The purest water is down
(loop in (ho earth and if we had a well
800 or a 1000 feet deep tho water ques
tion would be set I led for all time to
come. This might cost i'.'.'uu but that
ought not to scare a people that has
spout double that and more experi
This latter method would transfer
tho question to the well men and wo
believe that they arc the ones that
know much about it anyway. The city
should advertise for bids for pure deep
well water, tested sulllolently, no
water no paj. .Men in tho business
can bo found who will bo willing to
undertake to furnish water and at no
expense to tho city unless a satisfact
ory (low of water is found.
Ity all means let us stop this leak in
tho lliiaucial affairs of our city. No
more money for experiments but

"Why," shouted tho orator, pointing
to tho national ensign, "why, I ask
you, (loos that (lag hang there? I
repeat, what Is tho reason that that
Hag Is displayed upon tlieso walls?"

explained: "Tho fact is, they wouldn't

Three cheers for Superior. They
have organized n first class ball club
and they are confident that this timo
they have a team that will wallop the
Hod Cloud boys. Superior people are
to be congratulated on their enterprise
but we warn them that they must luivo
tbolr host with them nil the time if
they show our boys the mysteries of
tho diamond. Now for a lot of good
natured fun. Greek meets Greek.

As each lly deposits about 1-0 eggs
tho possibility of their multiplication
is apparent. Tho best wav to be rid

OME years ago a famous
specialist and expert in nervous
diseases made some experiments
what effect clothes had on the minds
He found that badly fitting or shabby clothes
were more or less depressing; that if he put a
man into good clothes, well-fitting, good style,
of good quality, the whole man was "toned up;"
felt better, worth more to himself, to his work,
to the community. It was clearly proved that
clothes are an intellectual and moral force.
In that case, just think how much the general
level of any community is affected and improv
ed by such clothes as these Hart Schaffner &
Marx suits we're selling. You may not have
realized it before, but this store is doing this
town a lot of good by bringing such clothes here.
