The reservoir as It now stands, has a capacity of 3.000.000 gallons. gome time ago the I water company purchased Miller's mill, along the Yellow Breeches creek, to be used as the filter plant, but, of course, many expensive improvements had to be made.

Engines and pumps were installed in the building, receiving power from the flow of water when the gates are opened. - . Not alone, however, is this channel the source of power, but from it also is pumped the water which goes through the filtering process. Adjoining this mill a large concrete tank has been eercted and inside of this a smaller one has been made. Inside of the second tank there is a pipe about ten inches in diameter, which supplies water to the filter. Water is first pumped into the large lank; but cannor get into the smaller one on the inside until the top is reached,' the smaller tank being of a trifle less depth than the larger one. This only allows the "top" water to get into the second tank and practically all of the heavy mud sinks to the bottom In the first tank. In the same manner water from the second, or inside tank, reaches the pipe to be carried to the filter. - The filter Is a large wooden affair inside the building and contain almost a carload of Cape May whit sand.

Then sinking and working ita way through the sand, it oozes out through the bottom of the. tank to a reservoir under the building. From this reservoir, or tank, the water is pumped to the large new reservoir, - filtered, and ready for use. By the process adopted by the Mechan - lcsburg company 500,000 gallons of water can be filtered in twenty - four hours. - . - . - The question, "Can the filter be cleaned?" naturally arises and can be answered in the affirmative. In cleaning the filter, air is forced in at the bottom of the tank and the supply ' from the tank outside of the building is cut '.off. The air disturbs the sand and all particles of dirt are forced to the top and the water that remains in the tank during the process seems to be boiling. After this disturbing process has gone on for several minutes, .filtered water from the reservoir is forced in at the bottom of the tank. Gradually the water raises, the dirt remaining on top, until it reaches the height of a drainage pipe, near the top of the - tank, and tnen the airt is carried to the creeK. n this manner the filter is cleaned every day. .. - Very little alum is used by the Me - chanlcsburg people, there being only about one grain in a gallon of water, and it is only to be used after heavy rains. Considerable expense was none to in laying mains by the company. A pipe line three and one - half miles long connects the filter plant to the reservoir and the latter is about two miles from Mechanicsburg. .Residents ol the borough ana all per Black Silks Friday Specials Friday rial, Na. 47 91.00 heavy Petticoat Taffeta, S3 lnchea, 7o Frldar Special, 48 60o MwwoJlna, 19 lnchea, . ,88o Friday Special, Urn. 49 91.50 Taffeta, S3 lnchea, 91.10 Frldar rial, Ms R0 91.60 black Ootele, 89 Incite, 91.23 Street Floor, Front e Friday Ipcrial, No. 81 50c Foulard, 25c 50o Foulard, staple shades.

Fourth Street Side Experiment With Sand.' A very interesting fact about the ordinary sand of the seashore is that a pint of dry sand and half a plot of water when mixed do not make a pint and a half, but a good deal less. If you fill a child's pail with dry sand from above the tide mark and then pour on it some water the mass of sand actually shrinks. The reason is that whea the saud Is dry there is air between its particles, but when the sand particles are wetted they adhere closely to each other; the air is driven out, and the water does not exactly take an equivalent space, but occupies less room (ban the air did, owing to the close clinging together of the wet particles. . - .

When You're Out of Sorts. A good thing to try when you are out of "kilter" is to fast, drink lots of water during the fast, but remember when you are fasting to remove all reason for further fast. Having decided to fast, the faster should make up his mind to use discretion. He should not, because he has come to believe In the efficacy of fasting, determine upon a long fast for a beginning. He must not let his enthusiasm for the new treatment carry away with It his common sense. His first fast should cover two meals breakfast and dinner. Peril In Spring Locks. Parents should warn their children about the dangers of getting into trunks or closets which have spring locks. A little girl while playing the other day bid from her playmates in a trunk and, the lid falling, the spring lock prevented her from lifting It, and the result was she was dead when her mother finally looked for ber there. No child should be allowed to hide In closets either if the doors cannot be opened from the inside. Try Telegraph Want Ads.

"I hate the person who sends me important information on a postcard," remarked a woman at dinner the other evening. "In fact, I think postcards In general an abominable Institution." "A still more reprehensible habit." put in a second speaker, "Is that of the man or woman who dictates letters of a Drlvate nature to a secretarv.", . All of us then enumerated our pet. aversions. One of them was the in - : dividual who is always In a hurry, who while one talks to him seems on the tiptoe of flight and who never decides to do anything without consulting an engagement book. Cousins to this one are the people who when they pay a call rush away after a fixed time, no matter bow interesting the conversation, and never remain quite to the end of an entertainment. Yet they are usually people of leisure, hurrying from habit and not because they have anything in particular to do. AH these folk In some way sin against good manners and hurt the amour propre of their friends, being without the blessed gift of tact which crowns Its happy owner with social PosnlsrJty.rJoB$oaBlftCfc and Walt. !
