find water for Norman, but it found
an apparently Inexhaustible supply.
The waterworks system is owned
by the town, and upon an investment
of $f!n.000 there is realized annually
a rt profit of 7 per cent after the
expense of maintenance, improvement
and royalties have been paid.
Some fifjht years ago Norman was
hard pressed for water. Numerous
1 0,!s hPn punk In the west part
of the town with a total output of only
25.0O0 gallons a day. The building of
a pipe line to the South Cnfdian riv
er nt great cost was bein discussed
whf-n O. Tj. Abbott, a farmer, said that
if tho town would enter into a con-tra'-t
to pay him or his heirs a royalty
of 15 cents on every 1.000 gallonsof
water consumed he would undertake
to provide a water supply of not less
than lOOrfiO gallons a day. and at the
end of ten years the wells should be-
j come the property of the town. Nor
man accepted the offer, and Abbott
entered into n partnership with M. L.
Ha worth, a contractor.
Abliott esa minted ihe topography of
Norman and decided that prospects
were fcest ne.ir the site of the present
rni!roj:d station, close to the business
center of town. At the appointed time
Abbott appeared on the ground with
a forked branch of a birch tree. Hold
ing the "water witch" firmly In his
two hands, he moved from place to
place, while a crowd watched him.
Suddenly the birch bent toward the
"There." Abbott ssld. "we will find
water." To assure himself that no
mistake had been mnde he undertook
second survey, and at the same spot
the birch bent a second time, so vio
lently that some of Its bark was twist
ed o?T in the fanner's hands.
waterwitch was right.
Abbott was so jubilant that he gave
I a bond at once for the fulfillment of
I his contract. He sunk a well at a cost j
of ?4,0C0 and at a depth of 240 feet
struck a vein of excel ietit water with !
a Cow of 80,000 gallons a day. Another j
well was sunk to a depth of 400 feet
beside the first one and a further dally
Sow of 50.000 gallons obtained. Nor
man is using 105.000 tralions a day and
pays Abbott's heirs more than $15 a
day in royalties. The wells become
the property of the town in about two
years and a half.
The full capacity of the wells has
never been tested. Neither drought
nor flood changes the level at which
the water stands, nor has the heaviest
pumping shown any diminution in the
supply. The water Is very cold.
ITALIAN JEWS DIMINISH.
Total About Half That Shown In 1873
What has become of the Jewish pop
ulation of Italy? The latest census in
dicates that there are no more than
170,000 Jews In that country.
In 1870 they numbered 300.000. and
by the natural laws of Increase, statls-
tUJans say, that number should now
be about 50 per cent more. Striking
decreases In the Jewish communities
are noted in single cities, such as, for
Instance. Pisa, an ancient site of He-
This city had until comparatively re
cent times a considerable Jewish pop
ulation, with famous schools and a
great printing establishment of world
wide reputation, the property of the
Jewish community, where the best edi
tions of the Talmud and other works
of Hebraic lore were produced. Ac
cording to Pr. P.loch. the demand for
works in Hebrew has declined so ;
much of late years throughout the !
world that the printing establishment j
got Into financial difficulties and has f
recently been taken over by the gov
ernment, the result being that it3 pure- I
!y Hebraic character has been lost.
A sulwwriptlon is now being raised

ry in Italy.

senators promptly sensed the situation
and advanced toward each other.
"Senator." said Dick, "my boys
would like to meet your girls."
"Bring them over, bring them over,"
said the smiling Carter.
When an usher announced that the
president was ready to meet all com
ers the senators had a lively time
segregating their charges and getting
them Into tine.
"Well, aren't yon glad yon met

You have long considered
wash day a necessary dread.
sow you tan consider it a
pleasure, for the new way is
to let ua bear the burden. Then
wash day la merely a matter
of gathering the soiled clothes
together. When our wagon
calls, wash day Is over as far
aa you are concerned. When
tbe clothes are returned they
will be spotlessly clean and
delightfully fresh. The colors
will be bright, the buttons will
be on, there will be no rips or
teara. When you consider the
expense of washing, the price
you pay to help, the cost of
fuel, the discomfort and aggra
vation, you will say our way is
truly economical. Drop ua a
postal or phone us now.
