PURIFICATION OF WATER W ATER is no more necessary to life than pure water is to health. Be cause persous have drank ques tionable water and still live is no evi dence that they would not have lived better on pure water. Because one sur vives a close of poison, it is is 110 reason that poison is good or harmless. IT IS REASONABLE, if a badly polluted water causes severe and fatal disease, that slightly impure water may slowlv undermine the health by being the cause of a host of ailments ami inabilities "of body for which the suf ferer finds no apparent cause. When a city is supplied with only doubtfully pure water, no family, should be without a private filter. Wc are Sole Agents for the PASTEUR GERM PROOF FILTER.

ARGUMENT AT 2 O'CLOCK Defendants in the Attiun, Ed Berk and Kittie Ross, Will Then Know Their Fate. In Justice Sweet's court this morning at 8 o'clock the preliminary hearing in the case of the State of Idaho versus Ed. Keck and Kittie Ross was resumed. A subpoena was issued for C. A. How, a resident of Vineland, by the defense. R. - : I j : ! ■ Mr. Dow was placed on the stand and ! testified that he was a barber by trade j ami conducted a place near the O. R. & N. saloon. He stated that at the request . of Attorney John Green of the defense, he j went to a position opposite Dr. Van Zanilt's window of his office in the Wil denthaler block and examined the dis-.! tance to see how far down the street a person looking from the ex- j treme left window of the doctor's office could see. He testified that a person ■ could not possibly see a person or object j from the given point further'than 12 feet I from the corner of the N. P. saloon to the j outer edge of the sidewalk. Danford, of ; the state, cross-examined witness in rela- j tion to the facts, this testimony was in- | troduced in order to prove that .Dr. \ an j Zsndt, who testified yesterday, could not j have seen any greater distance than 12 ! feet from the corner of the lodging house looking north 011 the sidewalk. Con siderable discussion was had over the distance, between counsel on both sides and witness. Attorney Danford request ed the court before deciding on the case to satisfy himself in relation to these facts. Hete the defense rested. The state also rested. Attorneys for defense moved to be al lowed to make their argument now be fore the testimony was transcribed. Ow ing to the condition of the weather and the inconvenience which the defendants are at in being incarcerated in the county jail. Attorney Green, of the defense, ar gued at length on the statutory laws re garding this and respectfully asked the court to grant the prayer. The state ob jected very strenuouly, though he was satisfied to allow the defense to make their argument, but he stated he would wait for the record of the testimony to lie transcribed before making his argument The court interposed and stated that under the conditions and owing to the fact that the case was one of the most serious ever brought up in the state, he would not proceed with any undue haste in the disposition of the case, and set 2 o'clock Monday afternoon as a date for further hearing. It is expected that rebuttal testimony will he introduced at the next hearing. I After the adjournment the court and attorneys on both sides proceeded to the office of Dr. Van Zandt on Main street where Justice Sweet viewed from the doctor's window the distance at which a person might be seen coining from a northerly direction along the sidewalk. He refrained from giving any opinion. By this time a large crowd had assembled and opinions varied as to the distance. Some said it was 20 feet and others 40 feet; however the testimony of Dr. Van Zandt will in all probability be corrobor ated by expert witnesses on the matter. Much interest is being displayed by the public in general over the outcome. Hans Mumm, U. S. deputy mineral ; surveyor arrived in the city last night ' from Buffalo Hump where he has been on business and states that a great deal j of activity is being displayed at tly- new town which is being built this side of the Hump and that Mr. Sweeney is spending considerable money towards the improvement of the district. Our New Coal Fields. Newton Ilibbs returned yesterday from the Grand Ronde coal fields which he visited in company with George A. Wells, an expert in the employ of the O. R. & N. company. Mr. Wells will re ]>ort to his company in Portland, when it will be determined whether or not this company will take hold of the properly and develop it. Mr. Wells expressed himself as being well pleased with the condition and said ; his company would surely lniild a rail road to the district if analysis ami seien- I tific research determined the large de- j po-its to he merchantable coal. He said ! there was no question of quantity as he ^ explored a twenty foot ledge that ex- l - tended for four miles. The question of : value would be left to another depart- 1 nient of his company and would be de- j I termined by scientific tests, j This coal bed underlies about 4000 acres so far as known. It lies in a basin : between Cottonwood and Wenatche 'creeks. The field is covered by filings 1 ! made by citizens of this city last spring. ! ■ Two hundred and fifty feet of work has been done in developement with the above result. The Uame Law. At the last session of the legislature two game laws were enacted. One was approved February 14 and the other March 13. In the fust enactment the open season for grouse and prairie chicken began August ist in the otl er it begins August 15th. It is evident the law ! thaker did not know what they wanted, j hut the courts will, perhaps, is the pro visions of the later law and fixes the date . August 15. j The local sports have planned a raid 011 l he grouse next week. It is perhaps t,le safest policy to accept the safe date for the beginning of the season. The open season for deer begins September 1. j Land Office Notes, obadiah Scott, of Denver, Idaho, filed a homestead on 160 acres of land near Orangeville Char les W.
