Collins pitched a fairly good game but

game was finished they had five big er

The new pump lately purchased by the

the water works is almost ready to be
started, and is a beauty and no mistake.
It is a Gaskell Compound Condensing
pump manufactured by the Iloiley Man
u'acturing company of Lock port, X. Y.,
and is one of the finest of its kind in the
stnte. It has a capacity of 5,000,000
gallons every 24 hours and can be in
creased to 7,0tX).000 pallons In the same
sp-ice of time. The present consumption
of water in the city is something over
2,000,000 gillon pjr dy. so that the in-c-ease

It may be interesting in this connect

The big ctant. as it realy is, was started
yesterday and given a turn or two with

smoothly as any on could possibly wish.
Aule from its value to the city as a safe
guard against fires, etc., it is a very
handsome piece of machinery, and well
worth a trip to the water works building
to fee. It is finished in brass and bright
steel work, with neat steps on three sides
and is painted a dark red with canary
trimming which makes a very pretty
color for an engine room. The floor has
also been repaired and everything made
in keeping with the new pump.
