HORRIBLE TRAGEDY NARROWLY AVERTED. The Prompt Arrival of .the Officers Alone Saves a Chinaman From Be ing Cut to Pieces By a Cocaine Fiend. The cocain fiend who was chased by the officers yesterday made good his escape and was still at large at a late hour last night. Soon after midnight an urgent rail was sent in for police assistance from the American kitchen and when Offi cers Scott. Smith, and Mitchell arrived there they found the cocaine fiend In the act of carving a wild eyed China man whom the lunatic in his deleriurn had taken for a Boxer. The insane man had the Chinaman down on the floor and was flourishing his knife i na dangerous proximity to the celestial's throat. The trio of stalwart officers reached Miss the scene of the conflict just In time to There are many points about water that are not generally known, but which if known better would have a considerable influence on our health and well being. Everybody knows that water is the most universal solvent that we have but fewer know that it dissolves gases as well as solids. The hotter the water as a rule the more of a solid it will dissolve, but the reverse is generally true of gases the colder the water the more gases it will dissolve till at boiling point the gases are expelled. What good is it to know this? Just now I will be content to say that this knowledge has done away with very many cisterns of water and thus saved the health and sometimes the lives of a multitude of people in many big cities. A knowledge of this will prevent you drinking the drip wa ter from a refrigerator which is al most entirely totally unfit to drink on account of the organic matter that gets into it and decomposes in a few hours. A knowledge of this has led scien tists into inquiring what part pure gases in water play in our economy and it has been found that a water which is not aerated has various evil effects on the stomach, besides being nasty to taste. Ordinary distilled wa ter, and water which has boiled for some time are both bad and unpleas ant. Why do you like good deep well wa :er or ' spring water from a deep source? Partly because you have a feeling that it must be organically n:ire. but chiefly because it nearly al ways is well charged, with gases and these gases are pure. The different tastes of waters are oftener due to the gases in solution than to the salts. An unweighablc quantity of organic matter which has decomposed and distributed its gases through the water can very easily be tasted, while it needs about seventy parts of common salt in a hundred thousand of water to be detected by taste, fifteen to twenty of a lime salt and about one-fourth part of iron. In the hydrant water here there are about 140 parts of different salts in a hundred thousand, some people can not taste this when it is free of organic matter, but most can. Deming water has about 57 parts salts very few peo ple can taste that. Distilled water has no salts and no gases or air it tastes flat. Hygeia water has only 20 parts salts quite tasteless but the natural gases from the deep source give it quite a sharpish taste. An interesting property of water which has great effect on us without our being conscious of it, is that dif ferent proportions of oxygen and nitro gen are dissolved by it so that while air Is a mixture of 21 parts oxygen and 79 parts nitrogen, where air is dissolv ed in water it is a mixture of 35 parts oxygen and only 63 parts nitrogen. Thus the air dissolved in water has higher oxidizing properties than or dinary air. This property is taken ad vantage of in some filters which not only strain impurities out of the wa ter but really burn up some. A properly managed sand filter for instance will take bacteria out of a water bacteria so small that they would easily pass through the sand if it acted only as a strainer. Next week I shall have more to say the solubility of gases in water in connection with drainage a very important matter touching nearly ev eryone in this town. E. M. Skeats.
