During the past week an organl/atlon very
quiet awl unassuming in Its pictonsions , but
very useful and efficient in Its operations lias
been holding its ami ml meeting in this city.
This was the anti-horse thief society and It is
proving ono of meat seivlco to the state in
many wavs. Its name might pci haps suggest
some of the simim iri methods that prevail In
Judge LMich'scouit on the frontier , but If
so , It would belle its work. The association
works cntliely through the regular channel of
justice , but when it tots after a horsethiof ho
neveregcapes. Tlio organization now has in

and helps bring them to justice. So it miu'lit
very piopeily be called a law and older

TIM : WAii.uvvoiiKs QUKSTION- .
Thopeouloot this cltvaie hav Ing n good
deal to say just now on the subject of better
water supply. T'ho watei compiny that has
a monopoly of the city has ehaiged such high
pricen and given such pool service that a
general tevolt is the result. Some of thu
public buildings hero have to piy thousands
of dollaiH purieai lei the small amount of
water consumed In them , while manyprivate
families lind ( licit watui bill almost amounts
to as inneli as it would cost to start a water
lactorj of their own. All soils of schemes ,
tlicretore , for escaping the > eke of the water
company are now being adontcd. One of the
largest business houses in the city has de
cided to put In Its new building , the. tank sjs-
tem , hav ing a large tank in the toof as the
supply depot , then using the watoi to run the
elevator and by an automatic arrangement
cairy the same water back to the top , and
use [ tin the elcvatoi again , thus pieventlng
waste. It Is estimated that with the whole
expense of putting in the appaiatns taken
Into account them will bo a saving of several
bundled dollars pci 3 ear , as compared with
the cost ot water at present extortionate rates.
One ol tlie entei prising submits of the citv ,
hasdecided to put In a little watei works of
Its own , and tor this purpose will build a
largo tank , which will ho tilled by a wind
pump Irom a laigo well adjoining. Then
pipes will bo laid to various houses In tbo
svstem andthopcoplo will ho independent ot
the old compiny. Many houses and Institu
tions are lesortlng to artesian wells , with
vervgood icsults , though nobody caies to
have as large results as the. people ot Hello
J'lalno seemed. Thogieat well Is still Hewing -
ing , at the lattei place , sending out Its mil
lions ot gallons of water eveiy day , Thn
people or Hello I'lalne , Ilko the inhabitants
of old llamlln , are adveitislng lor some
1'lcd 1'iper to charm tlinlr atlliction away.
