Joke on Water Co.
Judge R. Y. H. Nance played a
trick on the Anderson Water. Light
& Penver Company some time ago.
His water bills, so he says, kept grow?
ing. Finally he gave orders to his
folks, after just paying a bill, not
to use a drop for the next month and
see how things worked. During all
this time he used well water. Xext
month rolled around and so d!d the
water collector. The judge was par?
alyzed when the collector handed him
a bill for just twice the amount of
the month before so he says, and not
a drop of the water had been used.
He then ordered the water cut off for
good, he says, and since that time has
been using well water, where bills
don't grow so fast.?Anderson Intel?
