be credit to most any bunch of "wood
butchers. " The hose house was built
around the bottom of the tower. Di
rectly north of the hose house a llfty
foot Incline about four feet wide was
built for drying the hose after being
used. Yes , Wlnnetoon has a fire de
partment , waterworks , and n well that

Electric Light Difficulties.
An expert from the holler factory
that mnmifnctuicd the big new boiler
In the electric light plant , which baa
been giving so much trouble since It
was set ii ) ) , Is here and , after an in
spectlon of the boiler , announces that
It was not set up right originally. The
automatic stoker is the part that has
been causing all the trouble , and thin
the expert announces will have to be
taken down and reset seveinl inches
1 lower than It now stands. When this
' done , the expeit announces , there
1 will be no further trouble with the
I stenin generating plant , and It ought
I to he in condition to furnish continuous -
' ous power for months. In the mean
time it is announced by the electric
light management that u duplicate
power plant has been ordered and that
it will be in place as soon as possible
to Install It.
{ The frequent failure of the plant to
1 furnish light and power during the
1 past two weeks has caused a good
deal of dissatisfaction among patrons ,
' which seems to make a good opening
1 for utilizing the power at the Sugar
'City ' Cereal mlllfl. To that end ,
1 M.irtBra. CarrleU mid Brueggomnnn
'havo ' been IntOi'vlewIng business men.

' gine nt the mill to furnish power dur
ing those times when the water power
is out of service , as it Invailably IB
at certain seasons of the year.
Whllo many consumers are very
much out of pptlence over the unsatis
factory service that haB been furnish

the fact that the company has recent
ly been making heavy Investments for
the purpose of improving the service ,
tbev hesitate about promising to cut
I. off their pntriin.iso entirely from the
n ( old campnny. the spirit of public on
tcrprlBo prompting them to mippm (
any concern that is trying to bettor
the condition of the city. From this
tenor of opinions hoard. It is belle\ecl
that if the electric light company
would renew Its working agreement
with the mill , ho that If there wore

be ready to rnrrv the load , thus as
