I ' ... ". GOOD SALE OF BONDS
$15,000 Worth ot Waterworks Bonds
Sold at a Premium
y ' V of $1.02 1-3 I
Members of the city council met ,
Monday night and closed a deal where-
by $15,000.00 worth of the cities' five '
percept water works bonds were sold
at a premium of $1.02 1-8.
This is a part of the $93,000 voted
sometime ago, but owing to the high
cost of material w labor the bonds
were not sold. Thru a very fortunate
circumstance the city was able to buy
16,000 feet of 4-inch wuter pipe aUa
very attractive figure, and at the same
fjm t . : .. i.l . l. u i
I ltciiik auit; iu mane emeu n suie
of the bonds, concluded to go ahead
, with some expensions which have been
held off for this reason.
This is undoubtedly the best bond
sale made in Liberal and shows that
the council is getting on to the job of
selling bonds, likewise that the in
vestors are pretty well satisfied with
the security offered.
The bonds will come due in 20 to 30
The extension to be made from this
fund will give service in practically
all parts of the city, and there will be
many fire plugs in the out lying dis
tricts, reducing the fire hazard con
siderable. It will enable the mains
to be connected up to conform with
the state law regulating "dead ends".
Mayor Griffith and the members of
the council are to be congratulated
on this sale and the fact that they are
able to better the water system.

Upte-Date Custom le for Bride
Equip Man f Her Cholee With
Custom has decreed tbat when a
man receives from the woman IM
loves a promise that she will be his
wife, he should forthwith buy her
ring. It Is an excellent custom,, ac
cording to the Jeweler.
Most ancient and modern loven
have observed it, but modern lorers
lire going one better. Instead of one
ring, two are bought, and they are
not both for the lady. Jack and JIU

It Is no new custom for men to
war wedding rings. Thpy have done
so for nires. But It Is a new Idea that
they should not have to pay for them.
The up-to-date bride Insists on doing
her share, and buys the ring for her
groom, while he purchases the sign of
her new estate.

Niagara's Future City.
An Idea which has occurred to many
minds since the lest "hn messing" of
Niagara falls was clearly put by a
speaker before tfo Engineers' society
of New York. It Is that most of the
electric power obtained from the falls
will be used within a few miles of Its
place of origin Instead of being trans
mitted to distant cities. In other
words, It Is believed that at and near
the falls will he situated the future
Industrial center of America. It would
be theoretically possible. It Is stated,
to transmit power from Niagara as far
aa San Francisco, but the cost would
be prohlbtrlTe. - It mnch -cheaper to
