"Washington is tho propor capitol

"You lcd tho world ouco, but now

Thus does tho iudustrinl king rele

MONTPELtER'S WATER SUPPLY.
"Tho Moutpolior board of hoalth
is agitnted ovor tho mntter of suspect

Thh little liews waif is goiug tho
rouuds of tho Stato and although it
may do uo particular harni it sots tho
matter iu n wroug light. Tlio board
of health is uot ngitated ovor the
mattor of suspected contnminatiou of

dicated above, nor is au epidpmio of
typhoid fovor fonred except in tho
senso that tho disbaso is somothiug to

Health Offlcor Liudsay and tho mayor
and couucil nud it is n very commoud

did not wnit for publio opiuiou to

at work for somo timo beforo nuy au
uouucement of the fnct was mado.
Thoro was aud is uo nlnrm nud uo
causo for it. Moutpolior's wnter sup
ply is amplo and is good, but thero is
a po8sibility of impioving it, nud tho
movcmout that is undorwny at presout
is uot a forcod oue but rather it is iu
keeping witli the Montpelier spirit
of progress Tho Stnte board of Health
ha3 beon iuvitfd to iuspect tho souvce

J.t is quite ovidout tliat the "Roii

is proposod to defond tho America's

Up to this timo her trial spins have
not provon altogothor satisfactory nud
thoro is n woll grouuded fenr thnt Sir
Thomns Liptou's Shamrook III may
carry across tho wnter the prizo for
which hor owuor hns contestod so loug
nnd innufully. Tho new Shamrook is
a wondor if tho tlaily reports of hor

whilo tho Relinuco is u disnppoiut
ment to tho American public if it is
uot to hor ownnrs. The now defeud

Ou Thursday she will moet hor rivals,

Shamrook III is beiug put in Bhape for

It may be that the ordinary Ameri

tho motivo whioh impols the yonng

somo other porsou's blood ou protexts
that would causo scnrcoly n frowu on
tho fnco of n youug American, but
lookiug nt tho mntter from this distant
viowpoint ouo is apt to judgo thnt tho

flciout iu grny mattor. Horo is tho
Intost cnso rocordpd. Tho Morcur, n
