Saturday's Reformer referred to the'
shutting oil of the water supply in the!

by Wantastiquct lodge "of "Odd Fellows,

The duly authorized agent of these sev
eral interests has heretofore attended
to the adjustment of water rents and
the share-holders have paid their pro
rata indebtedness to him. The duly con
stituted committee of Wantastiquct
lodge has deferred action on its share
of payment until the fcame should be
approved at a meeting of the finance
