ild To Purify Water.--The use of impure
Ad water Is the primary cause of many
ale fevers and other diseases. There are
in dl&ierent methods used for its purilica
ay tion ar.ong which are boiling, distilla
aw tion and filtration, the latter being the
'ed fayorite method. Marsh waters in
ock many instances may be so far improved
By as to fit them for drinking and culinary
gi purposes by steeping in them certain
ng herbs or by rubbing the inside of the
.es kettle they are to be boiled In with
y- bitter seeds and herbs. In' China and
ud Japan the tea plant is used for this
ed purpose, and bitter almond on the
Is, banks of the Nile. A writer in an
til English paper gives his experience in
en the purification of water which Is as
)ss follows:-"Difforent waters liUe dif
of ferent diseases, require different treat
of ment to purify them, and all waters,
ry no matter how impure they may be,
it. can be made quite pure for drinking or
ut other doinestic purposes without distil
20 lation, providing the proper materials
th be used and suilicient time allowed the
lie re-agents to act; but in many samples
,n of water I have found distillation to be
i- the quickest and cheapest mode of
er purlifying them. All filters in use,
es that I an aware of, only purify the
of water from solid impurities nech:ani
nh- cally suspended in the water. 'I'ie
ih following is a description of a fillter

lo flimer the better, mixed with charcoal

"e layer of line, clean, siicious sand and
e you have it perfect filter. Allow the
is water to filter slowly through the
s- above filter and you will produce a re
s. markably pure drinking water. Before

d they should be well washed in a hot
s solution of soda or potash to remove
I- oil or other impurities, then rinse them

must be allowed to filter very slowly.
'Tiie deeper the bed of iron filings

and I am not aware of any other person

rendered quite pure and lit for drInk

it a practice during the last twenty
e seven years to boil all my drinking
I water. It is the safest planth for a man
moving from place to placc. You can
not always carry a filter and chemicals
about with you, but you canm always
manage to get boiled water. P'eople
talk about it being vapid and tasteless,,
