WALDEN WENT DRY i MONDAY NIGHT THE WATER ALL RAN OUT OF THE TANK QUITE SUDDENLY AND • AS SUDDENLY THE MAIN PIPE WAS STOPPED. Somebody monkeyed with the ap paratus. The valves at the pump, house on the main pipe had been tampered with and one on the line was found closed. Monday evening about 0 o’clock the Town of Walden very suddenly went dry. Discovery was made that the water plant was drained completely. Pumpman A. N. Siebert, Ben Siebert, Marshall Huffman, and Louis Svedlund went up to the tank to see what caused the drouth. It was drained all right. Then the Siebert brothers went home to get ready for the night’s work anb Huff man and Svedlund went around by the Maine fire hydrant to see if it had thaw ed out and burst and drained the tank, it was still solid, nothing wrong. As they came back passed the Town nail they heard footstepps inside and went in. When they entered the back door slammed and somebody ran away. They found the wrench for turning valves on the main pipe returned. (They had been unable to find it on their way up to the tank, and now it was in plain sight.) Down at the pumphouse the Siebert would start the pump again and afPnn only to run the water against a solid obstruction in a few minutes .stop ping the pump. Tuesday morning was spent in vain looking for this obstruc tion. Ex-pumpman Davis informed them that there was a valve somewhere below town on the main pipe but was unable to find it at this time. Furthur he felt sure no one else had and advised that the difficulty must be in the pump, to take it apart. Right after noon Harold Semple, who lives well down toward the pumphouse in the lower end of town where the un discovered valve was supposed to be was questioned and he led them to a place where he said he had seen Davis working some time ago while in charge of the plant. The valve was found at once- It was closed tight. They open ed it and immediately on getting up steam the pump worked perfectly and no other obstruction appeared in the main pipe. However, when the pump started the water through, the first fire hydrant wi*s found to be broken and it took Siebert several hours to fix it before h*» could fill the tank.

How the Standisli Hotel would delight the staid New Englanders, it would ap peal to them from the very minute they entered the doors of this delightful Denver establishment. For not only does the name recall the doughty old warrior of Colonial days, the admirer of the fair Priscilla irnwort alized by Longfellow, but every chair and even the floor adds to the atmos-* phere of Puritan days. The Standisli coat- of arms, typifyi-g courage, is inlaid in nicwwo ; n the lobby The rich brown of the r.ld leather chairs calls to mind the vomiiiiko f grim Puritan times, the weathered «. .. makes one see tho dim-raftered w.d's of old England, the home of Mil- ,St.i - dish’s beloved Ruse, taken from Kim hv by the rigors of that first cruel v im- r in Plymouth.

We are proud of our boys and girls who spoke so well and of our other boys and girls who gttve their good quiet attention. Boy and Cigarette Problem No. 2 A Boy plus Cigarettes equal—? Ans.— A boy minus Self respect, Strength to say “NO”, Safe habits. WHOSE BOYS “We must have boys, then let us begin, To pursue them in every quarter With a hustle and bustle and din we shall win: Then hurry and scurry them into their sin ; Rush them on like sheep to their slaughter.” Two [Million boys, tho boys of this nation must bo selected out of every gen eration to go into the saloon hopper. Sixty thousand boys are drafted every year into the army of drunkards to take the place, at the saloon bar, of the sixty thou sand bloated drunkards that have been drawn forth from the street and buried with the burial of a beast. WHOSE BOYS will be drafted next? A superintendent of tho State Reformatory in Illinois says; “I am sure cig arettes are destroying and making criminals of more boys than the saloons. Cig arettes are not the effect of crime, but are its cause,” WHOSE BOYS are thus to be made criminals? Traveling liquor dealers are known to call boys and young men to their carragos'to sample their poisons, taking orders for delivery by express. WHOSE BOYS will bo caught in this new liquor trap? You may visit any of the 2,200 corner saloons in New York on a Sunday and find in each one none practically but boys and young men. This is the case not only in New york but in every city, or wherever there is a saloon. WHOSE BOYS are in danger? The saloon can no more be run without using up boys than a flouring mill without wheat, or a sawmill without logs. The only question,is, WHOSE BOYS your boys or mine—our boys or our neighbors. Let the Christian voter answer this question at the ballot box. THE AMES MERCANTILE CO.
