Pure Cistern Water and How to Got It,
Pure water tor domestic use is of
great importance. In most wells the
water is more or loss impregnated with
lime, or other material or earthy sub-'
stance, so that it is not so pure as rain
water. Wells are often so deep that it
is hard drawing the water. For family
use, I would recommend a cistern.
WJoit pi? cos where a well can bo dug,
and where it is not so sandy as to cave,
a eifitern can be plastered with cement
without walling with brick or stone.
When I built my house, four years ago,
I dug my cistern back of the house be
fore I built the summer kitchen, so as
to havo it in t ho kitchen. Tho lilterer
is a small cistern, 0110 or two feet from
the other cistern, with a tile for a spout
to connect them. The eud of this pipe
in tho lilterer is enelosed hy a small
circular brick wall, or it double wall of
two inches each, with a space of two
inches between, which is tilled will, pul
verized charcoal. The surface of this
tillering wall is scarcely a square yard,
and lluit part of the roof diselinrging
into the cistern is twenty-four feet by
fortt-. Yet it is only the most violent
thunder-shower that gives more than
enough water to puss readily through
tho lilterer. The main cistern is six feet
in diameter find twenty-four feet deep.
This gives us cool water all summer
as cool as well-water. Wo draw with a
chuin-pump, which keeps the air and
water circulated, so thai it is pure. I
prefer to have the- lilterer outside tho
main cistern, and being shallow, it is
easily cleaned. Both cisterns aro eov
vered with a brick nrch. In tho cistern
of six feet in diameter, tho arch is
started with a groove cut into the earth
for tho bottom of the arch. The earth
holds it sufficiently from where the cis
tern i:t plastered. The arch rises t!irH
feet, leaving three feet of earth over it.
There nru over sixty eorn-canning es
tablished in the state of Maine, anil the
number of cans of corn annually put up
is nearly twelve millions. Tho farmers
aro paid about II cents per can for tho
corn, the tin and solder costs about 0
cents and tho remaining; 4oro cents
goes to the manufacturer for putting up
and marketing. The 1:1ms hold about
twe.uty.six ounces of corn, and fanners
are ablo to grow from 1.000 toil.ooo
cans per rfero, tho average being not fur
from 1,600 cans, of a cash value of if 15.
There nro several factories in Med way
and Franklin, Mass., and others further
south, but Malno puts up about one
third tho corn canned in this country

ILLINOIS PROHIBITION CONVEN
TION. BLOOMi.NyTO.N, III., Aug. 0. The first
state convention of the Prohibitionists of
Illinois will not pass into history as a great
political success so fir us the attendance
assembled at Washington hull to-day is
concerned, but what tlio assembly lacked
in atteudalice it mtdo up the deficiency
in earnest enthusiasm 011 tho part of some
of the most ardent temperance workers in
the s'ate. If the convention hid been
oinpleto to-Jity it would have consisted of
67i delegates to euch 5,000 inhabitants
accord iug to the census of 1880. But
less than.0n9.ualf this number wore b the
convention hall wlum A. V. Ilutchine
of Chicago, ewcretary . of the itato Cam
paign Committee, read tile call for the pur
pose of nominating a state ticket and
electing delegates to the national conven
tion to be held in Cuicago, August 2U aul
21. It was neatly noon before the conven
tion wis in working or ler, and the prog,
ress of routine business drew along at tho
slowest rate, as if the advocates were anx
ious that everything be done in the m ist
careful manner, this being tho
first raomiiiTos convention
Called to organize a party to enter the fall
campaign with the bitter determination to
make war upon tl.e bulwarks of all other
political ties and faith. Tho result was
there were in atteudanco some very promi
nent temperance workers, whose names aie
quite famous as against the rum traffic, in-
cludiug ex Senator Roddick, who Is the
despised of Illinois saloon people as the
inventor, fulminator and projector of the
bill which makes owners of buildings used
for saloon purposes responsible for the
d image their "bug juice" may cause.. He,
is also the idol of the female department of
the prohibition movement and in reality
his blow at the whisky traffic is about the
solid. st and most effective ever dealt. In
this connection it may be stated that Sen
ator Roddick is the Nestor, as it were, of
the Democracy of Northern Illinois. Hon.
A. B. Cumpbell, a prominent temperance
worker of Kinsas, and lion. J. B. Finch ,
the temperance Hercules from Nebraska,
were both preseut and imbued the dele
gates with the proper spirit of enthusiasm.
Finch, who is recognized as
THE COMINO MAN
upon tho temperance platform, made a
speech, dealing in tho political aspect of
the question and succeeded in producing a
fleeting sensation bymakiugau attack upon
Lieut.-Gov. Hamilton, who resides
in this city. Finch tittered with
dramatic effect what ho in
tended for a "squelcher" upon the political
aspirations of Hamilton, who seems tube
the most prominent Republican candidate
now nieriirf.i- as the successor of S.-nator
David Dund. 1'lie speaker proceeded to
say that Illinois' lieutenant governor had
8iil that he would rather see every other
house turned into a grog shop thnn to see
HEPCULICAN PARTY DEFEATED.
This was greeted wiih hisses, accompanied
by the usual cries of "shame" upon poor
Hamilton's bead. In a card published in
this evening's paper ll imiltun brands Mr.
Fiath as a talsitlcr, and denies emphatical
ly that he ever made such a slatenv nt. The
convention occupied the greater portion of
the day in prepiring and adopting their
platform, which was not only a strong and
bitter denunciation against the rum power,
but expressive of the determination of mak
ing an aggressive war against the political
parties in any way unsympathetic with
The evening session lasted until a late
hour, it being nearly 11 o'clock before the
nomiuiitijus were miule, which resulted as
Judge J. O. Irwin, Madison county, treas
urer ; Prof, M. C. Andrews, Knox county,
superintendent of public instruction. The
convention then adjourned, well satisfied
that the initiatory steps had been taken to
wards opening tho warfare In tho state du
ing the coining fall election.
Tho New Game of Moll-Buzzing.
A new feature in crime now claims
Eublic attention. Harry Woods, an
Inglisliman, was arrested in New York
for pocket picking, in which he had dis
played a degree of skill whieh proved
iiiin to bo .1 London expert. His pecu
liar lay is known in the parlance of the
tombs as "moll-buzzing," and tho
method is ns follows: The victim stated
that while in tho crowd at tho ferry, he
was addressed by an interesting young
woman who was In much trouble. Mho
had lost her way and wanted explicit
directions to reach home. He became
bi much occupied in assisting this un
fortunuto creature that ho was easily
relieved of his pocket-book. Another
complained that I10 too had been vic
timized by tho woman and her pal, who
wero In both cases tho same. Their
)lan is very apparent, "Moll-buzzes"
11 onler to engage the victim s atten
tion while her pal picks his pocket This
"nioll-buzzor" lias taken large hauls this
season, but at last has been brought to
justice. . It is certainly a neat ana orig
inal way of "working the crowd."
While other Baking Powder art largely
adulterated with Alum and ether hurtful
has been kept unchanged in all Its original
purity and strength. The best evidence of
its safety and effectiveness is the fact of
its living received the highest testimonf
als from the most eminent chemists in the
United States, who have analyzed it, fret
its introduction to the present time. No
