It would he necessary in order to sup

Tho capital has always had trouble
with Its drinking water. There Is
plenty of the liquid, but very little of
It lit to drink nt any time of the year.
Most of the drinking water comes from
the Seine, purified of courso before be

of drought it has been found necessary
to turn the water of the Seine direct
Into the city pipes. An enormous tiller,
ing plant is under construction, but its
