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 and still live is no evi
dence that they would not have lived
better 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 ot ailments
and inabilities of body for which the suf
ferer finds no apparent cause.
When a city is supplied with only
doubtfully pure water, no family should
lie without a private filter.

The Pathos of War.

store. A boy, of about 7 years of age,
was seen looking at the curtoou and, af
ter a lew moments, selected a large stone
from the roadway and deliberately hurled
it at the figure of Kruger, smashing the
window, lakeu to the police station and
examined as to w'hy be threw the vtonr,

killed my father." Inquiries elicited the

is proposed by the officers of the New

mark the meeting as one of the most im
portant labor conferences of recent years.

called to order the official call for the
gathering was read by the secretary.
The call said in part:
"The growing demands of labor, or
ganized aud unorganized, the need of
more strongly asserting our rights iu leg
islative halls and the courts, the flagrant
abuse ot authority in tile uusurgation of
civil authority by militarism as practiced
in Shoshone county, Idaho, in time of
peace; the indiscriminate granting by
prejudiced judges, of unjnst, unwarrant
ed, and, iu many eases, unconstitutional,
injunctions against labor organizations;
the increasing combinations of capital
ami great industries; the gradual trans
forming of human lieings into mere chat
tels all lend to emphasize the necessity
of the workers meeting in closer affilia
tion to calmly deliberate 011 such action
and steps as will liest advance the inter
ests and uphold the rights and privileges

threshing machine outfits made a record
