Members of the committee—Mlu Olive Percival, its head, Urs. Thomas Allan Box and Miss Florence Moore have been unceasing in their endeavor, and the result is eminently gratifying. Many pictures are shown which have not been seen in the west before, and some of the older and more familiar prints are given additional interest and value by reason of the possibilities for comparison afforded by the entire col lection. The Whistler group is of great Inter est to all visitors, and the committee in charge of the exhibit is delighted with the characteristic representation of the works of this artist. There arc nfteen pictures from his pen and two prints which are especially good are "The Lime Burner" and "Kotherithe." "Bibi Lalouette" is another one of this number which makes an instant appeal to the observer. Joseph Pennell, the greatest living etcher, is represented by about a score of pictures, which include the famous New York series, 1905; Illustrations of the Spanish series; the J.ond<>n series, 1891; the London series, 1906, and throe from the Pittsburg scries. 1909.

Thompson, former owner of the bark Alden Besse, waa held to an swer for trial In the superior court by Justice Bainl yesterday on a charge of embezzling the proceeds from the sale of the ship's cargo. LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 16, 1910. Municipal Affairs CITY MUST LAY PIPES OR LOSE BIG RESERVOIR Mayor Warns Council That Land Near Eastlake Park May Re vert to Former Owners Unless the council ran provide for tlie i>;trk department t" lay water pipes to the old reservoir site north of ISaatlake park, the reservoir property will revert to the former owners, in I the substance or a message the mayor has .sent to the city council. The I mayor asked that this sum be pro vided, aw the land Is most valuable and I the city should not let It slip through Its fingers so easily. Ho says: "The property known as the old rfes ervolr, located north of Rastlakp park, near the Indian village, is held by the city under a condition that, if it be use,l for any other than reservoir pur- I poses, or if it be abandoned as a res i ervoir, it shall revert to the former j owners. This reservoir lias been used I by the park department for the pur ■ pose of collecting tha storm water of | that vicinity and using it for park pur poses. This storm water has not been sufficient to keep the reservoir in use the year round. At the present time it is practically dry, and the former own era or their successors in interest are now claiming an abandonment on the part of the city. "In order to hold the property it is necessary for tho city to keep the reservoir in use, and this may be done by utilizing the -waste water or over flow from the pipes of the water de partment at North Slain and QatOS streets. In order to obtain this over flow water it will be necessary for tho park department to lay pipes from the point to this old reservoir, a distance of about 3600 feet. The estimated cost of this work is $2000. As this old res ervoir is of great value to thn parks, I would respectfully reecommond that your honorable body provide funds for the laying of this plpci" STEWART OFFERS A NOVEL INDUSTRIAL TANGLE PLAN Each Member of Committee to Write His Own Report Councilman G. H. Stewart, chair man of the public welfare committee, yesterday suggested a novel method of settling the industrial district dis putes. The matter of establishing these dis tricts has been before the committee almost since the council's election, I but no definite conclusion has been i reached. Every member of the com mittee has a dlffeient view of the sub ject and Mr. Stewart proposes hut each of the three members shall sub mit his plans in a report to be written by himself. These reports are to be ready by next Monday and if any two of them agree those two shall be considered i the report of the committee. If no I two of them agree, which Is more ! likely to lie the case, all three are to j be submitted to the council Tuesday and the council told to take its choice.

ARCHITECTS NOT IN FAVOR OF HIGHER BUILDINGS Protest against any action of the council in increasing the height of buildings was registered yesterday by the Southern California chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

I Most Important That You Drink | Puritas Distilled Water at \ This Time of the Year At No Time Are Natural Waters More Liable to Impurity Than During the Fall Her* Are Sninp of the Unison* for It During the fall and early winter in Southern ralifornla you ought to avoid drinking the natural waters. At no lime is their liability to impurity so great. This can be readily seen. If the rains have not yet come, the streams are running at their lo'weat. Flowing through an alkaline noil, they take up largo amounts of thiß mineral matter. Then, too. tho decaying veg etable matter of summer impregnates the whole stream. If the rains have come, then the con dition is even worse, for the rain has washed the soil—dry through so many months, and the impurities thus washed away are in the streams—and many of them are of such a character that no mechanical device will rid the water of them. Good judgment indicates Puritas Distilled Water as tho ideal drinking water the year round. Especially is Puritas necessary during the fall and winter. Puritas is absolutely pure water. When you drink Purltas you need hive no fear of the evil effects of impurities—mineral, vegetable and bacterial—so generally found in natural sources of supply. We distill Purlta3 twice—double dis tillation is essential to water purity. j We aerate It with pure ozone—secured by passing a current of electricity I through filtered air. We bottle Puritas in clean, glass demijohns—it reaches you with all its wholesome purity ln tact. Puritas is easy to secure and very inexpensive. Five gallons cost but 40c, delivered within the old city boundary lines. At outside points the cost is a trifle more, owing to the long haul. Regular Puritas customers purchase Coupon Books, thus securing the pure water at a discount. When you tele phone, usk us about them. Home 10053; ; Sunset, Main 8191.
