PLANT WOULD COST ABOUT $30,000, City Uses 190,000 Gallons of Water ,DaUy During Summer Months. Needs Extra Storage Tank. Preliminary plans for a filtering plant were submitted to the city council by Mark Norrls of Webster City at the meeting last week. The council requested Mr. Norrls to make out a complete set of plans and specifications as soon as possible which he promised t do. These plans should be finished 1: a week or so. Mr. Norris estimated th cost of the plant would be approxi mately $30,000.

The plant would do away witi all that. According to Superintendent Jo Kelley the city needs an additlona storage tank which will hold abou 350,000 gallons of water. During thi summer months the daily consumption of water was 190,000 gallons and in the winter It drops to 120,000. If the plant is built a large building will be erected at the northwest corns: of the block owned by the city and thi basement which would be 120x40 fee would fQrm the storage tank. The tank would be covered and the floor of the building would serve as the roof of the tank. The building would be built o: brick. Everything would be inside this building except the aerator and the settling tank which would be on the outlsde. If the filtering plant is put in It will be paid for out of the ele'ctrlc light fund, for which arrangements wil probably be made in the near future. One Stop Station Practically Completed.

Board of Managers Selected Quarters Taken In Old First National Bank .Building. Burt Monitor: The smoke from the upheaval caused by the closing of the First National Bank had hardly cleared away before the Burt Clearance Association was performing the functions of a banking institution for the citizens of this community. The Burt Clearance Association, as its name implies, Is simply an association formed to clear commercial paper and establish a place where credit functions may be maintained. It operates under the banking laws of the state and will use the Iowa State Bank at Algona for a depository. Funds deposited In this exchange are protected against theft and the association offers the same advantages as a bank, except that it does not loan money. Checks cannot be paid unless deposits arc made to cover them and outside checks deposited can not be used for credit until they are cleared. The association Includes all the business and professional men of the town. A board of managers was elected, consisting of D. F. Slaughter, K. J. Smith, Dr. W. T. Peters, G. W. Bleich and J. McDonald. Lloyd Elston was elected secretary .manager and will be in ac- llve charge of the exchange. He has furnished a bond of $10,000. Quarters were established Monday in the old First National Bonk building on the south side of the street, and by Tuesday morning deposits were being received and the Institution was in ful operation.
