"When I think of our possibilities and
of what other cities have done." he said,
"I believe most heartily that we are con
siderably behind the times. While we
have some pretty parks, we have the
opportunity for much Improvement. Yet
we lack the funds. We now maintain

we would need much mora.

Boil City Water
Next Two Weeks,
Says Dr. Connell
Caution to boll all water used for
drinking purposes during the next two
or three weeks on account of Impure
condition csused by the breaking up of
Ice snd snow was Issued yesterday by
Health Commissioner Ralph W. ConnaU,
It Is ss follows:
"Although the city water at the present
time from a bacterial examination shows
up in fin shape, the chemical examina
tion shows sn Increased srnount of free
ammonia, which Is likely due to the melt
ing of snow and surface drainage. These
exsmlnatlons do not necessarily provs
the water I unsafe; yet, as an ounce of
prevention Is better-than a pound of
cure. I would advise as a precautionary
measure, that all city water used for
drinking purposes be boiled for the next
two or three weeks."
