Mahtgir KENTUCKY ESTIMATES FOR WATER-WORKS ARE DIVULGED Mr. Gillig Sends Report to Mayor Barry and- City Coun cil. Plans to Use Amount of City Bonds and Private Subscriptions. Mr. J. T. Gillig, of Cincinnati, O., who was invited by the City Council to make an estimate "on a proposed water-works system, and fire protec tion to the city has made his report to the Council. Mr. Gillig knowing the amount the city can bond itself, has mapped out first a fire protection, which will go to the end of the means available Mr. Gillig suggests this as a statter, and the other parts of the town can be laid down by a popular subscription to all sections of the city. The location of the pumping sta tion as maped out will be near where the old sawmill stood at the foot of 3rd cross street The 8-inch main would pass up that street to High and thence across the creek to lower wharf and up Center street to the tower on the hill this 8-inch main would be the main artery to the tower, and the small mains can be used on the hill and less densely settled loc alities. Mr. Gillig letter in full to the City Council is as follows: - Mr. Gillig's Letter To th Mayor and Councilmen, City of Cloverport, Kentucky, Gentlemen: With respect to a water works system for the city of Clover pout, it is desired to report to you the conditions observed, and suggest a plant that best fill your require ments, as it is seen. The population of two thousand is distributed over considerable area, some of which would be difficult and expensive ,to serve. First attention I should therefof be 'confined to !a I pumping plant, storage, and distri- buting system over the more closely I built up business and residence sec I tion, where the fire hazard is great est. The distributing system could then be extended as service is desir ed and funds available for construc tion work. I Any work installed at this time should be in harmony" with the ultimate plant, providing for future filtration, and it is recommended that plans and specifications lie prepared ai me uui set. if work is to be undertaken.. The scheme for the system is cov , ered in the following points, togeth I er with the drawing which shows the I character of plan. Supply The river appears to be the best , source. I't is not advisable to draw the raw water, and it is suggested that wells be sunk into the gravel de posits of the river bank. The location for the wells should preferably be up j stream or above Clover Creek, though I such location is not absolutely neces sary !nd a location elsewhere would he satisfactory. Wells A pump well, l(i inch diameter to be sunk as shown on sketch. Such a well should afford about 300 gals, per minute (G. P. M ) "The well could be sunk by jetting and for the cap acity as economical as any type of well obtainable. Pumps A deep well turbine type of centri fugal pump to lift the water to the surface. This nuinn would run sub- I merged and have a capacity of 500 G. P. M. ponnected with this pump there would be at the surface another cen trifugal pump of same capacity pump- j iug into the main. I Pumping against the heads as shown on sketch, the well pump I would require about a 15 horse power motor to operate, and the pump work ing into a main would require a 50 horsepower motor to operate, bteam turbins, or gasoline engines could be used in lieu of motors, the cost of in stalling same bqing heavy however. Storage A 50,000 gal steel tank, for reserver supply to be located on the city prop erty reserved for such purpose. Pump Main An 8-inch main to be installed from pump plant to storage reservoir. The location is such that this main also acts as the main service main. Service The scheme as outlined will afford water with a hydrant pressure in the lower part of the city of 80 to 85 lbs. A pressure greater than this is not, desirable. The hill top pressure would be from 45 to 50 lbs. This is sufficient to take care of fires such as' would occur in the high part of the city. For fire service, the plant as out lined, would deliver water to supply four standard fire streams throwing 250 G. P. M. for about Vi hours, and would then supply two such streams constantly or indefinitely thereafter For domestic service about 6 or 7 hours pumping daily would furnish sufficient water. Future Growth The pumping units recommended would Serve just as well in connection with a filtration plant which may be desired in later years. A duplicate of units as described, would afford a fire service that would keep 4 fire streams supplied indefinite ly. These could be added if desired.

Tula C. Daniels. Friends, it is almost house-cleaning time over here, and gardening too, isn't it? But Benoni's mother in Armenia can not clean house or burn the garden trash because there was no house or garden to clean or burn. And another "because" was Benoni's mother had been carried off to a Turkish harem, and his little sis ter, Esther, just twelve, has been taken in another direction, and his father and older brother h'ad been slain. And now hiding behind the ruins of an old chimney, clad in a grass sack, pinned together with thorns and aching all over from hun ger and cold, the poor little skeleton is lying down to die alone. He hears footsteps and thinking they are demonized. blood thirsty Turks seeking what more they can find to multilate or destroy, he crouch es down even lower and pulls the rags over his head. But nol It is not a Turk who ten derly touches him to see what is under the rags, a good American woman lifts the poor little waif in her arms, and bears him to an American Orphanage, and begs them to try to make room for this one more. They give him a spoonful of broth because he could not stand solid food, bathe the emaciated form, put a clean night dress on him, and in a clean cot the litle fellow sobs himself to sleep. Pure gratitude brought grea,t tears, and he longed, too, for tlie mother, who comforted as no orph anage can. (Shall we release her from that living death?) But America loves him now and by and by he will conic forth a real trophy of what you have done for him. Is Benoni worth saving? Are thous ands like him worth saving? Try it and seel "A need, a need known and power to meet that need" is all the "call" we should look for. On. with your offering! Send at once to B. F. Beard, Treasurer, Hardinsburg Bank. "Let us bring these starving people of Arme nia back from the brink of the grave and put courage in their hearts and food in their mouths." Rev. R. H.

STEWART ADDRESS ES DEMOCRATIC MEETING. Mrs. Cora Wilson Stewart made her first political speech-at the .Demo cratic banquet in Louisville last Thursday night. She only- had about two days to prepare for that speech, as she was only notified Monday that she had been selected as the woman speaker for the occasion. It was second only to the speech of Mr. Cummings as the event of the even ing, and she received as .much ap plause as the party chairman. It was a speech worth while, full of splendid thought for campaign purposes, and filled with satire and irony for the Republican leaders. While Mrs. Stewart was at the head of the Illiteracy Commission she refrained from the discussion of politics, showing a just sense of poli tical propriety. Now that she is free from work she comes to the front as a great campaign orator. She was certainly a splendid representation of the intelligence and ability of her sex. and the women of Kentucky as well as the men should be justly proud of her. The Democratic party should recognize her ability by sending this gifted woman and Democrat as one of the delegates from the State-at-large to the San Francisco Conven tion lilizebelhtwon News.
