Alleging that sewage dumped from the sewers of this city and waste water from the plant of the Fort Scott Sorghum company have so polluted the waters of the Marmaton river east from this city that it is dangerous to health to reside near the stream, and that as a result farm lands there have been greatly reduced in value, Mrs. S. A. Brown has filed a suit against the city and the sorghum company, asking for damages of $10,000 for the injury done to her farm. The Brown farm adjoins the river east of the city a few miles and consists of over 200 acres. ! On December 7th Mrs. Brown filed a ! claim before the city council asking for , reparation for the damage done by the polluted waters of the stream, but the council failed to give any relief. The suit follows. More Suits to Follow. Three other similar actions are to be filed within the next few days, C. A. McMain asking for $5,000 damages, W. H. Sevey for $1,000, and James Harper for $2,000. Mr. McMain owns 144 acres of land which lies oji both sides of the river east of Fort Scott; W. H. , Sevey owns 13 acres and resides on the ' banks of the river. Just north of the I Military bridge, where he is engaged in truck gardening. These suits will be filed within a few days. A similar case is now pending in the supreme court of the state, having been taken there from Cherryvale, In Mont gomery county, and the outcome of that case may affect those in the local court. In each of the cases it is contended that the waters have been so polluted from the sewage from the city and the refuse from the sorghum works, that the water is no longer fit for use either by humans or stock, and that the stench arising from the river makes it unhealthful to reside in the vicinity of the river. 528 Adams St. Phone 3556 S5SS35E Dull Season Special A Handsome Cover FREE With Each Machine Over y3 Off Xatalog Prices On WHITE Sewing Machines Catalog Dull Season Prices Prlca Style No. 30 $80 $50.00 Style No. 60 $75 $47.50 Style No. 27 $70 $46.50 Style No. -45 . $65 $43.00 Style No. 25 via.. $60 $39.00 Pay $1 on delivery and $1 per week or $3 per month J.
