A Longcliff Experiment Recommended for Use at Hlrmmac. Dr. Hurty of the state board of health has been recommending to various cities of the state a plan for tbe disposal of sewage which is now in operation at Longcliff asylum and which is the only instance of the kind known in Indiana. What is known as a sewage bed is made by simply excavating to a distance of about five feet and filling the excavation with well-screened gravel. Dnder the gravel is a main, drain pipe connected at Intervals of about tec feet with lateral pipes. The sewage is poured upon the gravel bed and while at first somewhat of a nuisance, very shortly there is formed a vegetable growth through tbe gravel which destroys all the poisonous matter, and when the sewage seeps through and reaches the drain pipes it is absolutely harmless. Two beds are required In order that they may be allowed to rest alternately. The ground can be used for growing vegetables of all kiads and can be made a source of revenue. Tbe beds at Lougclift are used for growing vegetables and are a remarkable success. For a city the size of Logansport about five acres would suffice for the disposal of sewage for a decade The first cost might be considerable, but it would pay for itself In a few years from the leases, besides probably saving a great many lives. Dr. Hurty says the time will come when there will be laws forbidding cities polluting streams with sewage as they now do; that it will be aa much of an offense as foi an Individual to empty refuse In his neighbor's yard. MARIE JAKSES Store. In "The Nancy Hanks" at Dolan'g Tomorrow Night, If the public were only permitted to get a closer view of the domestic side ot the actress 1 life they would marvel at their own ignorance and soon undeceive themselves. It is the modest exclusiveness and reserve of the majority of actresses that keeps these facts from being better known and permits the public to form such mistaken and unjust conclusions. In this connection perhaps no better instance can be cited than tbe case of the beautiful comedienne, Marie Jansen, who plays in this city Friday night in Frank Tannerhill, jr.'s very successful comedy, "The Nancy Hanks." Miss Jansen's home is in Winthrop- By-Tue-Sea, a suburb of Boston and one of the most picturesque spots In New England, Hundreds of wealthy people have homes there also, as it is a favorite spot on account of its health giving Qualities, Miss Jansen's home is called Ben View after her father, and is situated on Johnson avenue, a private thoroughfare. The grounds are very extensive and reach down to the shores of the ocean where the actress' boats are anchored. Miss Janseo, „ though thoroughly womanly and refined and having none of the attributes of the new woman, Is fond of all out door sports and can hunt, fish, swim or pull the oar with anyone. Her itudy is ornamented with four deers heads that she shot herself while on a bunting trip in the Adirondacks, and In her music room Is a beautiful specimen of a stuffed salmon, the result of her skill with the rod. |W e A re Determined To close out our various lines of O \TEECOATS in men's boy's and children's department.
