PURIFICATION OF WATER
W ATER is no more necessary to life
than pure water is to health. Be
cause persous have drank ques
tionable water ami still live is no evi
dence that they would not have' lived
letter on pure water. Because one sur
vives a dose of poison, it is is no reason
that poison is good or harmless.
IT IS REASONABLE,
if a badly polluted water causes severe
and fatal disease, that slightly impure
water may slowly undermine the health
by being the cause of a host of ailments
and inabilities of hotly for which the suf
ferer finds no apparent cause.
When a city is supplied with only
doubtfully pure water, no family should
be without a private filter.

London, Aug. 16.—"The allies are re

says the Shanghai correspondent of the

A Paris message reveals this, hut the
statement, especially as it emanated from
Shanghai, must lie accepted with consid

foregoing from Shanghai, form the latest

in opinion. Some lielieve that the allies

Chicago, Aug 17.—Captain McCalla
of the cruiser Newark, who wes in com
niand of the American marines in Ad
miral Seymour's successful expedition to
the relief of Pekin, believes that the
Chinese situation is more serious and
fraught with more dangers to the United
states ami allies than anyone imagined
liefere the capture of the Takti forts.
Writing to Mrs. Edward Roby in this
city from Yokahotna, whither lie had
been invalided by the three wounds
which he received during the ill-starred
Seymour advance on July 26, Captain

Captain McCalla in concluding, said
that so far as he can judge, the interna

is most interesting and very difficult. He
also says that the United States may lie

interests in China, to adopt and declare

natural and nature always tends to es

great resources we can, as long as we
maintain the gold standard and keep the

all the gold we need."
