at the bank, but as ho would bring up no
one to identify him it was not paid. It was
suggested tliat he send it back to Canada to
be identified. He did so and the answer
came back that it was all right and the draft
was paid. Sjnce then the trick has been dis

State Fish Commissioner Gile urrh ed last
night with sev end tanks of game fish to be
deposited in the waters of the Littlo Arkan
sas. The total number of fish, we believe,
was 40,000, but owing to the hot weather
and unavoidable dil.tys in the transporta
tion, about 1,500 of the fish were dead.
Mr. Gile reported at oneo to the AVichila
Fish Club, and under the direction of AT.
B. Hutchison, secretary of the club, tho
commissioner deposited the fish in the Little
Itiver closo to ifr. AVoodman's place.
Mr. Gile ays that when the
weather is more propitious hu
will put more fi-h in the Little river, and to
tho full extent of the appropriation allowed
by tho legi-lature. The commissioner's
efforts aro laudable, but there is no earthly
n-o in attempting to stock the streams oftho
state so long as the presi nt law is in force,
practically putting a premium ujwin fish
piracy. The varieties brought by Mr. Gile
coiisi-ts of wall-eyed pike, croppie, whito
perch, etc., in all consisting of ten varities.
Tho fish average fully three inches in length
and are not minnows, but capable of taking
caro of themselves against all other enemies
except the fool with a net.
There r ache- us complaints that adulter
ated milks are being sold in AVichita, and
that tho milk men who deal out to their cus
tomers unv.atcred milk arc being drowned
out by the pumps of the los conscientious.
Every good hou-cwifo knows or ought to
know whether the milk sold her is all milk
or half water. Tho cream will tell every
time. If your milk don't produce cream,
chango y our milk man. Either such an one's
pump is too good or his cows too poor.
It is the duty of the authorities of a city
the sizo of this to take all such matters in
hand. An ordinance covering the subject
should be passed and a license a small one
demanded, and issued only in pursuanco
of regular inspections and tests of the milk
offered for s.ilc One of tho vveighmastcrs,
without extra expense to the citv, could bo
given the ncees-ary instructions and provid
ed with the necesnry instruments to test tho
milk sold from wagons. Until something of
this kind is done, the only advice we can of
fer complainants is to chango your milk
man whenever xoti di-cover a lack of suffi
cient cream to tho amount of mill;,
TO PATRONS OK THE WATER COMPANY.
Ot kick ok AVichita AV.vtkk Co.,

The persistent v iolation of our rules and
regulations in the use of water through lawn
sprinklers has become fo ouerou upon us
that we have bicii obliged, ill self protec
tion, to adopt an additional rule, as follows:
'The Use of hose for sprinkling purposes,
is strictly prohibit) d. cvo pt betwicn the
hours of 5 and 8 o'clock, a. m., and from C
to S o'clock, j i. in. Persons violating this
rule will have the water cut off, or be oblig
ed to put in a meter and tike water at water
In this connection we wish to call atten
tion also to Kulo Seven, which prohibits the
use of hose except when held in the hand.
Some, who do not understand the object of
this rule, are disposed to criticio it as
arbitrary and unreasonable. It is not so.
To furnish water requires steam power. To
make ste.imiequiresco.il. Coal co-ts mon
ey and eveiy two bundled and fifty gallons
of visiter wasted, costs the company the
price of one pound ofioal. To prop a
hose in a fixed position and allow it to pi iy
upon the same spot for a day, or even for
an hour, is an extravagant waste of water,
not ontempI.ited by the loinpiny in fiviug
water rates nor paid for by the coiisunn r.
AVhen the hose is held in the h mil, as the
rule requires, it U hki ly to be used so as to
utilize all the water, and put it only where
Many of our consumers have b en in the
habit of allowing hoe to play all day or all
irght some even detaching the nozzles. A
moment's reflection should com iuee all rea
sonable persons that this is not only a gnat
injury and hard-hip upon the Water Com
pany, but a serious impairment of the effi
ciency of the works for fire protection.
It is doubtless mere thoughtle ne on the
part of many in thus infringing on otirrulc,
and we feel assurid that after this explana
tion they will cheerfully acquir-cc in our
request. Certainly if they had our coal bills
topiythey would nalize the logic of our
position. None of our rules are more strin
gent than those of the most liberal water
companies of the country.
