To Water Consumers: In pursuance of an .-order of the board requiring an inspection of the taps, I deem it advisable at this opportune time, to call your attention to the fact that, there is. an unnecessary and extravagant-waste of water/ that is proving detrimental to the efficiency of the works and' should be aval t.d soon as practicable. This waste is occasioned in most instances by.defective . water fixtures; and in many cases, I regret to say, by the wanton and careless and often by the deliberate acts of the consumer who appears to be indifferent to consequences so long as he does not- bare to pay for the volume of water that flows through his pipes. The only sure ; cure and remedy for this ailment is the attachment of meters, and the day is not far distant when the city will be to the expense of resorting to this measure if some restrictions are not rigidly enforced. When the consumer realizes the fact that he will have to pay for every gal- on of water he wastes, then he becomes discreet and careful; his fixtures will be kept in good' repair and retrenchment and economy practised. As pertinent to the subject I copy from. "Fire Protection and Water Supply" for 1889 the following: "The amount of water used in different cities varies from 20 gallons per capita per diem to 176 gallons. But it has been proved, by the experience of many places, that an average, of 35 gallons is ample for all domestic, sanitary, manufacturing and fire purposes. The use of any more is wasteful and necessitates expensive works to supply the unnecessary excess. No works can afford to allow the free and indis- Item* from Che Note-Book of Oiir llullivxy Reporter—Point* Eer- Real Estate, For Sale orTrade In all parts of Logansport.

Broadway criminate use of -water, no matter if the supply is abundant; wasteful use means "large expenditures for increased size of mains and depreciation of available head in case of fires. In pump works it means a cost, in addition to the above of about five cents for every thousand gallons wasted."

An official of the Wabash says that the- reported reduction of wages on the Wabash is only an equalization of salaries. The road has been paying ticket agents good salaries and allowing them to take commissions, and in that manner theirpyearlv income exceeded that of some of Lhe'highest paid officials. It is to reduce the salaries that the changes are made. Conductor Lew Wallace reached the thirty-fourth mile-stone in his life journey yesterday and the event was duly-celebrated by a first class dinner which a large number of relatives and friends assisted in sampling to their evident satisfaction. The afternoon was spent very, pleasantly in music and social chat, and when the evening shade .prevailed an elegant supper was disposed of.

To supply the demands of these, -the pumps are discharging about 1,250^000 gallons of water every twenty-four hours, an average of over 277 gallons per capita per-diem; actually pumping seven times more than -is. absolutely necessary providing there was no waste. It does 'not require much foresight to see what the result will be if. this is allowed to continue. With double the'number of consumers we now have, attended by a corresponding waste in the future as has been in the past, the logical sequence is that the pressure will be so reduced that the city will have to provide herself with . steam engines for the purpose of suppressing fires. . The capacity of the works for fire purposes, when erected in 1S76-7, was the throwing "simultaneously, of eight streams of water, one inch thick,' one hundred feet to-day they will not throw'over' five. the Union Railway company, renmrk- ed'last evening that he questioned if .the Union Station at Indianapolis would have been 'built but 'for the effort of Mr. McCullough, who was the originator and financial agent in perfecting the improvement.—Indianapolis Journal. Involuntary Victors. Kokomo Dispatch: Mrs. Meek and daughter , Gusta visited Logansport yesterday quite unintentionally. They boarded the Louisville-Chicago ex-press at the Lake Erie station to go to the Junction to meet some friends expected on an incoming train. The express pulled on over the "Y" to the Pan Handle tracks and, instead of backing-up. to theltation as they fondly supposed it would, shot out for Logansport under full head of steam'. The unwilling passengers could not prevail upon the conductor to stop, and were, carried to- the. City of Bridges. Twenty minutes later they were put on a south bound train and returned home all 0. K. but just a little angry at fate and the conductor. That the abuse of the water privilege should cease is not only essential, but it is positively imperative, if we wish to preserve the utility and efficiency of the works for fire protection, Now that we are receiving our supply of water from the North Side spring wells,-which we'believe is adequate-for all legitimate purposes, it behooves the patrons of the works to be more careful in future, pat the fixtures of their taps in good condition, and stop this useless waste of water that is making • itself felt in the wear and tear of the .machinery of the plant.

"Unfortunately," he added, as ;ne pointed but the picture of a handsome woman, -the name and address has been rubbed oft One of Miss rivals was in our store and ig the picture, tore off the name Miss Pinkney has moved lately and we do not know where she can be found I have never seen'her, myself, butthere is so striking a resemblance between yourself-and her picture " "Oh, I don't look a bit like her I am sure," said the woman, blushing with delight. "Pardon me for disputing your word but you are the very image of her." "Oh, go on; you men are so impudent." , L "I do. not wish to be impudent, Miss I assure yeu."

"Jf i knew where Miss ney lived I would direct you," she said, but I really never heard of-her." : "Qb, come now, haven't you been often told that she and you "look like twin sisters?' 1 ^'Of course not," she replied, tittering "lou^men are so funny."
