SOME PUMP TALK
Fcrmer City Official Outline
What He Would Do
PHASES OF THE SITUATION
Would Find Out Hi Duty to the City
and Then Stand By
"Do you know what I would do on
this waterworks juimp deal if I was in
Mayer MrCaskrin'a place?" said a far
mer member of the city council, and in
cidentally a man who has been promi
nently mentioned for mayor on Fevera
occasions, this morning. "I'd know my
ground, and then I would act without,
dictation from any alderman who has
voted affirmatively on tie ponding
Drouoslti'.m. Hv knuutnir mv nrKiririr
I mean that I would find out through!
a commission of experts, including the
present superintendent of waterworks.
j;ist how urgent and immediate the
present ne d is. If a delay cf a reason
able leiiKth of Hire will not imperil the
city, and I do not believe it would. I
would favor a r ad v -rrisinu for bids,
and I would see that the competition
was broad and fair, which apparently
was not the case ;n the prese nt propo
rtion. .mmI Oral Tlil'n "lrunu.
"There is a .rod !t al that is strange,
at leat.t o;.t of the ordinary, it. the pro
ceel!nt:s under which th- al lern:ru

The Missts I
Every house must have a kitchen. Every kitchen should
have a McOougall Kitchen Cabinet. There is no home in
the land in which it would not be suitable and useful.
The houses of the well-to-do have kitchens that may have
the most elaborate equipment, but without a McDougall
Kitchen Cabinet, they are incomplete. However handsome
the furnishings may be, a McDougall Kitchen Cabinet will
not be out of harmony with them, but will supplement
and complete them.
in the kitchen of those with limited income, is not less ap
propriate, and even more necessary. It is here that the
housewife must spend more than half her time in a room
barren of beauty and with a minimum of conveniences.
Set into it a McOougall Kitchen Cabinet, and the whole ap
pearance of the room is changed for the better. This at
tractive piece of furniture 6 a distinct addition to the en
semble of the kitchen as well as to its convenience yet it
is in no way too fine for suitability. Set into it rows of
cups and plates, its array of bright enamel or glittering
tinware, with its suggestion of neatness, comfort and
"good food ahead" it is a picture in itself.

There are two incidents that particu
larly imrrrss n:e. One is the remark
able coincidence in the amount the city
Lad decided to expend and the amount
of the successful bid, and the other the
attitude of the aldermen referred to in
The Argus, whoever he may be, of
changing color t: so striking an extent
between the middle of the afternoon
and the middle of the evening of the
same day. An alderman who would
make the assertions he did against
certain proceedings aai then go right
in and vote for them, either takes the
public for a lot of iireenhcrns or ele
he does not know the difference be
tween right and wrong.
"It was this phase of the situation
that I had in mind when I started out
in my remarks about what I would do
if I was mayor. In other words I
would find out where the city 'is at'
and then stand by it."

saving in buying diamonds as well as other Jewelry
