Light & Penver Company some time ago. His water bills, so he says, kept grow? ing. Finally he gave orders to his folks, after just paying a bill, not to use a drop for the next month and see how things worked. During all this time he used well water. Xext month rolled around and so d!d the water collector. The judge was par? alyzed when the collector handed him a bill for just twice the amount of the month before so he says, and not a drop of the water had been used. He then ordered the water cut off for good, he says, and since that time has been using well water, where bills don't grow so fast.?Anderson Intel? ligencer. bo Would We!
