A citizen was describing to a friend of his an electric road he had seen while on a recent visit to Massachuset's. A little bird, belonging to the Pink Fn's poultry establishment, happened to be flying overhead and brought to the sanctum what was said. - Speaker No. l-,(who-had just "returned from his Massachusetts trip) "Y'es I saw the electric road that runs from Boston to Maiden and I tell you it was a rattler." "Tell us about it," said his companion. "Well in the first place each car was as big as a M. C. K. R. passenger car.'" "Phew" said Speaker No. 2. , � "Yes sir," emphatically' repeated Speaker No. 1. "It wa- every inch as big as a M. C. K. H. passenger car and the trolley wire, overhead, was as big as a mail's body. Ou tliis trolley and attached to the car ran* three big wheels as big as car wheels and there was no track-at all. -The cars-ran -on -the trolley wire instead of on tracks, like'they dfr here and, jeewhlt-tuker, but how th  winter 1.230,008- tons have been piif. up. soldiers were also instructed if they were compelled to drink from stagnaut pools or p.uids, to pour the wafer Irom one dipper^ros�n�t4}�r.^sew^ in a manner would purify it and render " it less liable to produce sickness.   It has also been asserted by,, scientists that if the ocean was not disturb, d by-the tides and winds that the water of ihe ocean a lid seas would soon become, corrupt and .; dangerous to the lives of every breath--   -ing animal. - When the water' company .proposed introducing river water into our villager they had it   anal\zed by  our college professor of clieini.-try who- pronounced it.pure and siinatde forfninilv use.   The main objection to using Audior-coggin water was that it was corrupted-by the drainage, ol th� cities ami. fnciories above us on ilie river.   For answer to this ithe friends^iif-river water asserted that running water became pure after flowing a short-   distance.   Wilis    fiom    which water isdiawn by a suction pump are oiucli more liable to become foul than those Irom which the water is raised by a chain pump or bucket, a.s the agitation   -of the water by a chain pump tends to purify it.   A   friend in Massachusetts, whose supply of water is derived~from the Charles river has a keg of clear' sand in his sink which is changed weekly.   Into this sand he lets the water run and filter through  the  same and is. drawn from the bottom of the keg by a faucet, and he asserts the water, is ren- -dered pure and harmless by this process of purifying it. On the other hand a friend in Boston, who uses Cochituate water iuforras| me that during the hot summer months the water brought into his home by a pipe becomes foul smelling aud tasting bad and.a.plumber_ha8 to be employed to open the' stream in the cellar from which he takes out a pint or more of dead bugs, grasshoppers and small dead eels, which are decaying and fouling the water. In the article in the last Independent the writer mentions that the patrons of water company in Brunswick supposed for a year they were supplied with water drawn from Snow's brook and were .satisfied with the quality of the water, while at the same time they were using water drawn from the Androscoggin. This little.loch,"hot more than u mile in length drains a swamp, a slaughter   .' house jtnd:iwoJiarn.yard8,jmd�wh'en, the'_ water was pumped- from this supply for one day, there was an unusual' complaint of its oileusive" quality. The people of your city, of course, have a choice from where the water supply of the city shall be procured,,but for myself I should prefer water taken from a running stream rather than that drawn' from-a stagmuit-vpoe+r"      -   E.
