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.
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.

State and Prosecution l^cst
—The Hearing Adjourn
ed Until Monday.
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.

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.

After working all day it was possible to !
get a horse within 300 or 400 feet of the
wounded man. He was with great diffi
