therefore, conclude in favor of the scheme
for drawing our water supply irom tha
Avre spriOKs, however much We may re
(fret the necessity of epriviug a district of
a portion of its water. I am aware that
the inhabitant nf t h valitr i , i.
have lomlly protested against the scheme
and have suxvested that we should draw
our supply trom the Cailiy spring-., but
these are situated at a level below that of
the Seine. To pump up the water to the
heights of Paris would require tbe use of
vuncriui uiaciimes, wmcu would cost at
least 5.0UO.UUU francs."

supplied at tbe average rate of liters
per second, or UO.ttJO cubic meters per day,
during the months of June, July and Au

Us maximum. During tbe first six month
f th year, when tbe water is most abun

Staj pivo Rock Aoknct, N. D.,Dec 10.
bittlni; Bull, the great Sioux chief and tit
most i eadly foe of the white, was killed
vestenlay morning. Orders had been re-
oeived from Gen. Mile for tbe capture of
the hii r medicine man, as it -was reported
that b i was about to start for the Bad
Lauds with his followers to join the hoe-
tiles ber. To prevent this the Indian
polic ! were at once sent otit to his camp
on tl e Grand river to effect his arrewt. It
was feared that the. lndiaus would resist
the t iking of their chief, and a troon of
cava iry under CapL Fouchet and a force
of lntantry under CoL Drum were hurried
onto support the police.
The Ruah for the Old Chief.

ahfiot twenty men reached Sitting Bull's
village they found the Sioux all ready to
depart for the southwest, aud lnxtant ais.

men., i ne police at once made a rush for
Sitting Bull, surrounded him and. tellinir
him he was a prisoner, started at one on
the trail forthe agency. The old chief
mad no attempt at resistance, but hardly
bad his capture been made when his aon
head ed a party of Bull's follower and at

.of tlie Indiun police also fell dead, and the
whole band would . probably have been
ma -wcred had it not been for the timely
sri-i ml of tbe cavalry. Early in the melee,
one of the Dolice iumned on una of Slrtlnir
