B. Chambers, water superintendent, whereby the different sections of the city will have certain hours In which to use water for this purpose. The schedule will be in effect af ter July 1st, and will probably con tinue through August and Septem ber.

Following is the schedule which the water superin tendent has outlined to be followed by the different sections of the city: VILLA PARK East side of R. R. track and North of pavement on Illinois avenue will water as fol fel fol eows: Every day from 5 a. m. un til 4 p. m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 4 p. m. to 9 p. m.. Sun days 6 p. m.

SPRAYED HAY YIELDS "Yields From Spraying .Demonstra- tlon on Utley Farm Show That Sprayed Hay Yields Two Tons GooO Hay While Unsprayed Hay Yields One Ton Poor Stuff A report of the number of live alfalfa weevil larvae from the dif ferent spraying, treatments on the demonstration tract on the Homer Utley farm was given last week. This showed that it was possible to kill 90 Der cent of the worms by applying calcium arsenate spray at mtho'proper time and In the approved manner. The results obtained by spraying on June 11 as shown by the number of live, larvae. The fol lowing yields bear out the results obtained In counting the larvae on the different treatments: 2 tons sprayed June 2, single ap plication, good. 1.4 tons sprayed June 11, sin gle application, poor. 1.1 tons not sprayed, very poor. These weights are approximately correct. The entire felld of sprayed hay made two tons per acre. The second crop Is starting up In good shape and promises to beat many fields which were mowed three weeks earner. The demonstration was entirely successful In showing that a field of alfalfa badly Infested with weevil can be ycontrolled by spraylng'lf It Is properly done and the first crop ot hay which Is us ually about half of the year's yield, can be saved. If the experiment, was figured In dollars worth Tof hay produced per acre it would show that sprayed hay was worth three or four times as much as the un sprayed hay, ponslderlng both yield and quality of feed.

Following Is the statement Mr. Mallett made regard ing the matter: "As the public has been wrongly Informed in a measure regarding the manner In which my sister, Alice Mallett, met death at Jackson, Michigan, on June 8th, I desire to explain how tho newspapers came to give an incorrect report, and to make plain the facts as 1 learned them In Jackson from those whoso authority cannot be questioned. "Owing to the fact that the po lice found It necessary to withhold from the press and the public for a number of boura, any Information retarding the nature of the slaying, false Impressions grew out of rumor and excited speculation, giving rise to sensational' newspaper stories which, an usual in such cases, once started could not be supressed. "I wish to state that my sister's death, terrible though it was, came instantly, and as a result of a blow upon the head dealt from the rear. She was returning from spending the evening with a friend who had accompanied her within a few blocks of her home, leaving her at 10:10.

They had reasons to be alarmed too, for had tho flro not been extinguished in nick of time the buildings close to the lumber yard would have caught on fire and undoubtedly done fur- thor damage. As It was, two of the coal bins belonging to the Van Pet ten Lumber Co. were destroyed and the contents considerably damaged, but was not a total loss. Thirty electrlo light poles which were piled close by the bins, and 283 stubs, all belonging to the Idaho Power com pany, were completely HeT3tjroyed. Tho cause of the fire Is believed to have been either from spontan eous combustion or from flames creeping over from tho railroad where men had been burning weeds along the rights-of-way. The flro had gained considerable headway before it was discovered, but the fire department made a quick re sponse to the call and Boon extin guished the flames. According to J. D. Orr, of the Idaho Power company, the 283 stubs and 30 poles belonging to that concern were not Insured, and the loss Is estimated at $2000. MISCELLANEOUS SHOWER FOR BRIDE TO BE Mrs. C. E.

About Death of Alice Mallett no assault. People sitting on their porches dlrectfly across thoj street from the scene at tho time, testi fied that no outcry was heard, and that there was no sound of any disturbance. Robbery was the mo tive, and It was the finding1 of my sister's pocketbook in the posses sion ot.tho ex-convlct which lead to his arrest. It had been hastily torn apart, though still contained several easily identified articles. "The body was carried, evidently by two persons, from tho sidewalk where the deed was committed, and placed upon a lawn a few feet dis tant, left undisturbed, clothing In tact, and the body not mutilated in any way. "To substantiate the above I have In my possession, signed state ments from the state detective, bb well as from the physician who ex amined the body. "As to tho report of "mob vio lence", I shall be frank In saying that it was my desire to see the wretch who committed the atro cious deed, llnched or burned at the stake, as It was that of the mob of over seven thousand who gathered at tho Jackson Jail after the arrest of Straub. However, it may be better that the law took its course, since upon the testimony of this man rests tbe-raeans of apprehend ing his accomplice. As the public knows. Straub has been convicted and sentenced to solitary confine ment with hard labor for lite, in the Marquette prison. Harold Mallett."
