Everybody nnil Ills Relations ns I'ountl in tlio New Directory Biirnlni-8 nt Work Again Personals. Sewer Ons and City Water. The water question continues to agitate the public mind , and several communications ro gardinp it have been received at this ofllco. The majority of thorn are ot nn Inquiring tone , ono inquirer voicing the sentiments of many In his anxiety to know "If tnoro Is really anything in it. " Another of the com munications Is herewith given ! To the Editor of TUB Bust An editor Is supposed to know a llttlo mo roth an anybody clso who don't know anything about it. So , Mr. Editor , will you please tell mo about sewer gas i What is there moro fatal about It than the tins that escapes from an ordinary water closet m your garden I Will a trap prevent the gas Invading your dwelling ! Is there any danger from gas where water only from your kitchen sink is carried through a trapped pit to a deep vault ) Is thcro uptofesRional sanitary engineer in this city or in Omnbn who knows onu kind of gns from another ! Who can prevent unhealthy smells from Invading our dwellings 1 Is tlicro a chemist hero who can analyze water , and ascertain its Impurities , and lot the pconlo of Council Bluffs know whai kind of water they are drinking , and bow It dif fers from what was furnished by the water company six mouths ugol If the water company do not afford us pure water , and c.xnnot adore1 to do it , and aeny that its water Is impure , let the city council ut once apuolut a committee of scion- till c men to examine the methods now In use to supply us with water , as well as tbo char- uctor of the water so supplied. No time is to bo lost in the matter. Six mouths ago'wo hud the best water of any city in the world , and thcro is no good reason why wo should not have it now. In conclusion lot mo say , wo should either have pure whisky or pure w.xier. TKMi'ciuKCE. Tbo writer of the above is evidently ono of the many citizens who have been consid erably agitated during tbo past few weeks by the report that the waterworks company was not furnishing ns pure water as might he expected , and that tlio company was rather Indifferent as to the condition of the settling Imsin nt the foot of Broadway. Nnumorous inquiries similar to the above have been made of late , nnd the result of careful investigation Is herewith given. The subject of sewer gas Is one concerning which much has been written , still its insidi ous properties are seemingly but little under stood. The general public understands that it smells disagreeable and is unhealthy , tend ing to disease and epidemics. Thcro is also a prevailing idea among property owners that traps should bo provided in all snwor plues to prevent the gas backing up from the sewers to tlio houses with which tney uro connected. However , this matter is very generally left to the plumbers , nnd with them rests a largo degree of responsibility. With this very scant kaowlodgs on the sub ject , tlio public evinces n disposition to bo perfectly satisfied , and in the majority of cases no further investigation is made until nn outbreak of typhoid fever or kindred dis eases calls attention to the fact that something is wrong , when the 'malarial atmosphere1' ' Is llnully decided upon us the source of the trouble , and again the mutter Is dropped. Sowar KIIS Is con stantly given off from the thousand and ono foul matters' and impurities that find their way into that , public drain , the city sower. As a as it is explosive , clearly showing this property when allowed no.chunce of escape , and compelled to back up to the higher portions tions of the sewer. Under these circum stances It is forced back through the water in thosower traps , which , nt such times , nro obviously Inadequate to the tusk allotted thorn. In view of this , thcro are hundreds of sanitary engineers who maintain that a sewer er trap alone is not sufficient protection agninst the encroachments of sewer gns. They advise the placing of a vertical plpo , running abova the roof ot the building , which will convey thu cos from the sewer beyond tlio reach of the resident , the sewer trap pre venting tbo escupo into the rooms. By weans of this escape plpo the danger of explosion Is obviated , and all possibility of the gas backing into the bouse is done away with. A physician was asked concerning the pe culiarly fatul properties of this gas , and his opinion was expressed as follows : "Tho disease most commonly produced by sewer gas is typhoid fever , and this disease is spread moro widely by this means than by any other. For this reason the sewers should be especially guarded against during an epi demic. The typhoid germ Is very minute , and is carried into the sewer by the water. It is so small that , our best authorities assert tliat it rises with the sewer gas , und thus spreads the discaso most alarmingly. Aside from this , I don't know us sewer gas is par ticularly fatal , that Is , anv more so than any other. Cases of asphyxiation by it are re ported occasionally , but they uro not com mon. " Tnere are several professional sanitary en gineers In this city nnd Omaha , who give these matters particular attention. First class analytical chemists are not numerous in this part of tho/iountry. A. Martin Muller - ler A. A. , professor of chemistry at the Omaha medical college , Is recommended by thu medical profosslon ns a skilled analyst. In discussing tbo question of impure water , the physician above quoted remarked : "I don't bee how It can bo that our city water is BO very impure or unlit for use. There is very llttlo sickness in the city , in fact , I have newer found It so ecncrally healthy during mv residence of seven years In the Bluffs. It can not tie that there Is anything so very serious Just at present , though there may bo some few Impurities in the water. You must know that it does not take very long for anything of this kind to show itself in tno city. There may bo a llttlo truth In the re port , but I think thut good , lively imagina tion has helped it along considerably. If quite a number unlto in telling a man thut ho is sick , ho begins to believe It , and my belie is that the same Is true m this case , " Notice In Fox Club.

The burglars have again commenced oper ations after a vacation of u few weeks , and start out this time with two Jobs to their credit within twenty-four hours. Thursday afternoon they visited the residence ot A. J. Stoddard , 015 Seventh nvcnuo , nnd secured considerable booty. There was no ono at homo except a servant named Lllllo Part- rldgo. She was upstairs , arranging her toilet. She heard a noise , nod on looking down the stairway saw a stranger climbing Into tbo window. She was so frightened she did not utter a sound. The stranger carried awavsomo jewelry and the contents of a child's bank , bosldcs several valuable orna ments. Immediately after his departure the girl raised tbo alarm , A search was made for the party but ho had made his esoapo. Thn preceding night they visited the house of F. Ogden , on Fairvlow avonuo.

All the family were at homo , but strange to say the marauders fulled to awaken them , and the first Intimation the pcoplo had that the liouso wan burglarized was yesterday morning , when they awoke and found that everything had boon turned upside down in nil of the rooms but ono.

Just now the river is ex tremely low , and. ns you know , there Is a big amount of water used at this time of year. Of course there isn't tbo chance to get clear water that there I * in tbo winter. A good deal of this grumbling , though , comes from personal spite , Noxv , all this talk about the pond is wrong. The water comes from the river , and is as good as any Missouri water can bo. It's all bosh about its being un healthy water. There Is epidemic hero , is there ) St. Louis pcoplo are pretty healthy. In fact all who drink Missouri river water live about as * long us other people. There can not any surface water run Into the con duit or the pond nt the river , unless it runs up hill. Then there's a hank 'around the sides to keep It from running In. The talk about cattle Is equally nonsensical. There's a burbod wire fcnco runtime all around it , so that cattle can't get to It.

In the county jail yesterday afternoon was a mlddle-agod man named Ed Gannon , who appears to have lost bis wind through re ligious excitement. All the afternoon ho paced the corridor of the jail with bis right hand raised above his head , and in a loud tone repeating over and over again these words ; "With the help of God , I am the son of God , I am not of this earth. I came down from above and. shed my blood to save sinners , In tbo name of the Father , Son and Holy Ghost.

Ho was discharged from the hospital a short time ago und went to work in ono of the livery stables of the city. Ho acted u llttlo "flighty" at times , but it was not until yesterday that ho became thoroughly daft. Ho will be taken before the Insane commissioners to day , and unless there is a change in his con dition In a short time ho will likely bo sent to the insane asylum at Clarinda.
