FLAPPER FANNY By Sylvia Court Orders Sheriff Sales On Solar Time DALLAS, Tc.x. (UP) —Sheriff . — , and District At- bad penny Fatten of Dallas pm'ce-Josluia Sm'oot Schmid torney Andrew bounty have taken up the study of astronomy as a result of Btatc supreme court decisions, The decisions hold that sales o'f property on mortgage foreclosures for delinquent taxes must be held at 10 A.M.—solar time. .That phrase "solar time" causes the difficulty. Standard lime in Dallas is about 21 minutes .off of solar time, so that a foreclosure sale which starts at 10 A.M., according to the clocks in the courthouse, really starts at .0:33 A.M., according to the sun. in certain case's the supreme court has held that sales were invalid because the solar time was not verified before the sales began. To get around the difficulty, the district attorney said he was considering asking the county to buy hint a sextant or a sundial, "or some other gadget that will tell what time it is."

Loan...consult your plumber for full details. Steps In Purification SEDIMENTATION is perhaps.- the oldest known method of Water purification. Simply, il means ihe clearing of. water by allowing it to slaud or settle—be it in a jar, tank, or reservoir. Tful the Romans had a good idea ol the value of this purification process is shown by the construction.of their aque- . ducts,, which at intervals had small tanks evidently used for this -purpose.-. In modern ws'lervyorks pvactice,' sedi'rhen- tabcn goes hand ilnd 'hand with coagulation. It is in the sedimentation basiiis that the mud, silt, and other foreign matter are gathered together by the chemical properties of the coagulant and swelled to the bottom, whence to be periodically <removed. Thus the modern Waterworks provide one more step in the purification of your most vital daily need. BLYTHEVILLE WATER CO. Courteous, Personal Attention to Every Customer Phine 80 US S.
