THE CITY'S WATER SHEER Y.
Referring to various rumors that
have been current concerning the pu
rity of the water supplied by the city,
The Herald and Advertiser is author

chemists and bacteriologists for exami

reports of these tests are received they

ever regarding the wholesomeness of
the water furnished by the city, but
in order to allay any apprehensions
that, may exist, have thought best to
submit samples of the water for cx-
aminution and analysis.
It is proper to state in this connec
tion that every precaution has been
taken to safeguard the purity of the
city’s water supply. The water-shed,
comprising about four hundred acres,
is under constant police surveillance,
and is patrolled at least twice a week.
Only a few days ago the reservoir was
thoroughly drained and scoured, and all
the city hydrants were flushed. A
force of hands is now at work clearing
the water-shed of all rubbish in the
shape of decaying timber and vegeta
ble matter, and this rubbish will be
burned. The public may rest assured
that the Water and Light Commission
will spare no effort to make Newnan’s
water supply equal to the best in the
State, regardless of what it may cost.
Vy the way, it is worthy of note that
in cwry case of fever reported since
canty sowing it lias been found, upon
investigation, that the families thus
nfllicted were users of well water. It
has been shown further that, during the
PUIIp. lyeriod, ny case of fever devel

The last Legislature passed an Act
permitting policemen and firemen while
on duty to ride free on street car lines,
this privilege having been forbidden to
them by a ruling of the Railroad Com
mission about a year ago. Now the
sheriffs of the State have united in a
petition to the Railroad Commission to
tie allowed free transportation on the
railroads while conveying prisoners to
and from different points, and while
serving official papers. It is pointed
out that a useless expense is caused

paid out of the county treasury. In
some cases the counties refuse to pay
the railroad fare, and this works a
hardship on the sheriffs. The petition

SIX El 7, DISCRIMINATION.
The State Sanatariurn at Milledge-
ville ia being severely criticized by the
State press for a general bad condi
tion, caused by lack of funds to do bet
ter. It would be more just to place
thjo blame where it belongs on the
Legqslnture for not appropriating
enough money to run the institution.

This is a fair and truthful answer to
