It May interest our readers to learn that the big Plant requires 5,000,000 Gallons of water per Day to Supply its several departments. The Supply ordinarily is drawn from a dam in Mahoning Creek on the company a own land a Northwest of the Borough. This source fails however Sun big me Low water season. It was then that the canal became an indispensable Factor Ami was drawn upon for All the water used at the Plant. The dam will furnish the main water Supply As before. The Artesian Wells will be relied upon to Supply the deficiency. Two Wells will be sunk each 8 inches in diameter. These May be very deep there is no telling to what depth they May have to be driven before a vein of water is reached. Work on them will begin in a very Short time. Thomas b.

The cold blooded attempt to murder Frank Taylor of Liberty township on thursday night last which sent a thrill of horror through the Community is no longer merged in mystery.

This our readers will not be surprised to learn is Stephen Moser the person committed to jail thursday night from the same township fur another offence toward w Hom suspicion pointed from the first. Or. Taylor the intended victim was in this City sunday and was interviewed by a representative of this paper. The experience of being shot at although missed is one that a Man is Likely to remember for awhile and it was not without a shudder yesterday that or.

Taylor says that no one but those who have passed through such an experience has any idea of w hat it is like. First of All there is the sense of extreme peril the dread of the second shot. He sprang to his feet and As quickly As he could recover himself he directed his wife to flee to the other room in which there was no Light the door opening near w Here she stood. Or. Morgan took this advice hut mrs. Taylor was too apprehensive for her husbands safety and too much excited to do anything. Ultimately the Light was extinguished and the family with Drew up stairs but not to sleep. An attempt had been made on or. Taylor a life and failed. It seemed perfectly plausible that the blood thirsty Encura Phish his purpose. All night Long they kept watch lest an attempt be made to Burn the dwelling or steal in upon them unawares. The next morning the Bullet a 32 calibre one was found lying on the floor along with a lot of plaster dislodged As it struck the solid a Wall on the Side of the room opposite the window. On the outside approaching the window strange footprints were discovered in the mud.

According to the plans of the com Pany at present no use will be made of the steel Plant Structure.
