Nor was this til), for bright and early Saturday morning the water wagon was parading the main streets and copious streams flowing there from laid tbe dust which had become almost intolerable. And the water wagon has been busy nearly evsry day since in tbe same good way, for be it known that Madison water mains are now constantly filled with fresh pure water and tbe immense stand pipe is filled at all times to the brim. Nor is this all. A reporter visit ed tbe pumping house Saturday af ternoon and found all of tbe ma chinery at a standstill. Not a piece was moving and tbe attaches were enjoying a much needed respite from months of constant toil and the ma chinery was cooling off after being run almost conlinously for a like period. And the cause of it all was that the new well recently put down by the Electric Power Co., (which does the pumping 'or the town) had been connected to the pumps and a Bow of more than three hundred gallons' per minute hn 1 been turned into the mains a..d the standpipe. Hen, Youths and Boys CLOTHING We Have Ever Had Is RIGHT NOW Madison, The connections were made Friday and at four o'clock Saturday morn ing the night watchman telephoned the plant that tbe Hand pipe was running over. The machinery was shut down and put to work again Saturday forenoon, and again about twelve o'clock shut down because the pipe was full to overflowing. From all indications Madison people need have no fear of another water famine any lime soon, and lest there be some who might have an idea that the water now being furnished is not of the highest quality we pub. lish the analysis of sumo made by tbe State Chemist under dale of Sept. 22. It is as follows: "Analysis by State Chemist Ar tesian Water from Madison Power Company. "Total Solids per lOuO parts 17 .4 parts. "Composed of Calicum Carbide (lime.) 'Sodium Chloride (salt.) 'Iron Oxide. "This is an unusually pure artes- ian water with less than average' amount or mineral impurmes. iv. r Rose, State Chemist." Administrator's Sale Notice Is thereby given that on Tues day.
