IIVESTIGATIONS SHOW DUCKS
DIE OF EATING SHOT IN MUD
Wild ducks aad other waterfowl
semetimes die from lead poisoning,
w tting from swallowing stray shot
wich they pick out of the mad aboueat
shaootig goruands. Many ducks that
become sick from leaed poisoning fi
naely recover, but it is probable that
the effect is permantly injurious, not TALLU
enly to the individual, but to the
species. It has been ascertained by
experiment that lead greatly impairs Durin

TO THE RESCUE.
rs During the first part of the week
l. the pump at the light plant was
y broken, and the supply of water was 1
e cut off. Mr. Meyers worked hard to
ro get an engine to pull a centrifugual
et pump which the plant happened to
St 1osess, but could not get one. Finally
e he decided to the the large tractor
Id belonging to Mrs. Scott, but when be
r- went for it, found that it would have
, to be put in shape to run. This took
Sa couple of days, and then the town
it had been without water for several
_ days, and more delay would, in 1Al
, probability have emptied all the tanks
is in town. Then the Tallglau Supply
Co. loaned the plant, ene of the new
"Moline Unive r1 troctors which it
had hq stgdL The tractor furnished
the wateT for about a day until the
l steam tractor was brought to
t-wn, and now the steam tractor is
i pulling the pump to furnish water
for the town. The Moline tractor
pulled the pump all right, even tho
it was a heavy load, and would have
Spulled it fast enough had the pulley
n the tractor been a little larger.
n The engine in this tractor is one of
the smoothest running engines we
have ever seen to be pulling such a
lead as it was.
A new centrifugal motor-driven
pump has been ordered for the plant, !
which will give all the water neces
sary when it arrives. The old pump
has been broken beyond repair, Mr.
Me eyers said, and until the new motor
