WATER WORKS COMPLETE,
FIRST SQUIRT IS GIVEN.
The first play of the water from the
cities water work system was given
Tuesday. The new hose was attach
ed by the fire Company, which seems
to be identical, at present, with the
police force, and the water turned on,
or off, (as the case may be) and after
a practical test,the flow was pronounc
ed to be sufficiently strong to extin
guish any fire likely to break out if
taken in time.
The next thing needed by the city
is an efficient fire Company equip
ment consisting of a horse that wont
balk, a hook and ladder, and a hose
wagon, together with an engine house
covered by a city ordinance prohibi
ting any citizen, private or public,
from converting it into a hay barn.
With these necessary equipments the
insurance rate will be reduced to the
minimum, and if the eiectrid lights
can be cured of the trick of going out
at the wrong time we will be fixed
very comfortably for the present.
Now to those who do not live on a
street with a main, we will say follow
the example of The Ja< ksonian, and
move on Third street, where your
wants will be looked after.

"Don’t Mind If I Do."
In a lecture at Leeds F. R. Benson
told his audience of a man to whom he
offered a ticket for a performance of
“A Midsummer Night's Dream." The
offer was accepted In the words,
“Well, I don’t mind If I do.” The
phrase Is not precisely what one might
call an outburst of gratitude.- Analyz
ed, indeed, it is extraordinarily rude.
It is no more than a synonym for
“Thank you for nothing.” But of
course those who use the expression—
and they are a large number—do not
stay to analyze its meaning, and the
persons to whom it Is addressed ac
cept It, if they are wise, without af
front. It is merely another example
of the slipshod style of speech that has
become so common. We have substi
tuted “Thanks” for “Thank you,” yet
even the latter would have seemed
abrupt and discourteous to the more
punctilious age that would have said,
“I thank you.” The young lady of
today, when she wishes to show ex
traordinary gratitude, rattles out, “Oh,
you’re too good!” It Is spontaneous,
no doubt, but it does not carry quite
the air of, “I protest you do overwhelm
me with kindness.”—London Saturday

This Horse Could Jump.
They were talking about horses Jump
ing at the club when one of the mem
“The best story of a horse’s Jumps
which comes to mind is that of a Cali
fornia cowboy. He was taking steers
to Leadville and had camped for the
night on Bear river, near its junction
with the Little Snake. In the middle
of the night something occurred to
stampede the cattle. The man mount
ed his broncho and rode hither and
thither on the flank of the herd until
their fright had died away. Four or
five times the rider felt his horse give
tremendous leaps, and with daylight he
discovered the cause. The cattle had
climbed to a level plateau which Is In
tersected by n canyon four miles long
and from 1,500 to 11,000 feet deep. Its
walls incline toward each other at the
top, where the distance Is fifteen or
twenty feet. In riding the man had
kept the steers circling about this pla
teau. A dozen of them he fonml had
fallen down the canyon and been kill
ed. Hoof marks showed him that the
great jumps made by his horse were
occasioned by the animal clearing the
canyon each time it came to the tak
ing off spot”—London Standard. -i

A Lgnd of Broalau.
Breslau, the Silesian capital, has a 1
famous bell, that of the Church of St.
Mary. It was cast in 1380 and has tu
legend. The story is that when hit
bell was ready for casting the founder,
after his great labor, went to take
food, and during his absence his ap
prentice, despite a strict prohibition,
opened the stopcock of the cruciblo
and let out the molten metal. The In
furiated master, disregarding th*
youth’s appeal for mercy made in
Christ’s name, poniarded him on the
spot and, finding afterward that hid
bell was none the worse, was plunged
In remorse. Condemned for the crime,
he asked on his way to the block to>
be allowed to hear his bell for the last
time, and through the centuries ever
since It has tolled the knell of tha
doomed. The German poet Muller cele
brates the legend in verse. London
