Yeed of More Well* in Case of a
Great Fire—Savannah Cannot Join
Atlnnta In the Trouble That City
Is Having About Its Water—Lenk
In the Conduit Will Soon Be Re
Sxperts agree that there is no reason
tthy Savannah should have any such trou
ble with its waterworks as is now wor
rying Atlanta. The question of water has
become of paramount importance in the
Capital City, even the conduct of the May
or, the performance of the two or three
sensational preachers who contrive to
keep things pretty well stirred up and
the general manipulation of the affairs of
the slate sinking into insignificance in the
public estimation beside the great and vi
tal consideration of a water supply, the
prevention of a rise in insurance rates and
the settlement of blame for the breakage
of the engine upon whatever pair of shoul
ders it should rest.
In Savannah two sets of engines are
ready all the time to supply the city with
more water than it can possibly use. At
lanta and Savannah both have the direct
system, the water being pumped from the
source of supply to the consumers, and
not into a standpipe or reservoir first. But
Atlanta seems to have made the error of
having engines that were inadequate to
the task, and now there is great confu
sion and alarm over it.
“With such use as they receive at the
pumping station,” said Mr. John Rourke
yesterday, “the engines here should last
fifty years. They are run very slowly,
and the near and tear upon them is very
“light. They are run alternately for a
week at a time, and there is no reason
why they should wear out. As far as I
can see, there is absolutely no reason why
any alarm should be felt.
"The two engines at the old waterworks
aj-e also In first-class condition. I know
them both, and they are capable of doing
a great deal more effective service. I see
nothing at all to criticise in the matter
of engines. In fact, there is-nothing con
nected with the Savannah waterworks
system that I could criticize save the
number of wells. Two or three more
should be sunk in order that a greater
supply of water might be at hand in the
event of extraordinary need. If there
should lie a great fire, lasting a long while,
it might be found that the present supply
of water Is Inadequate to fighting It, and
then It would be seen that more wells
should have been sunk. You know it is an
old saying that ‘You never miss your water
till your well runs dry.’ If would be easy
enough to choke off the supply from the
wells when It is not needed."
Supt. Kinsey of ihe waterworks is still
busy with a force of hands in trying
to patch the break in the conduit that
conducts the water from the wells. It
is thought the work will soon be finished.
The break is in the top of the conduit,
and the loss of water has not been as
great as it would have been had the
break been in the side or bottom The
conduit is not always full, so that the
pressure Is not enough to force very much
of the water out. There Is no means of
estimating what the loss of water daily
No complaint at all has been heard
about the supply of w’ater. The old en
gines are thoroughly capable of supply
ing all that is needed while Ihe break is
being repaired, and it Is not likely that
the slightest Inconvenience will be nf
forded. It is In such emergencies that
the advantage of having two sets of en
gines is to be seen.
For some eight years the engines at
the new waterworks have done their
work with never a fault. Their capacity
is 20,000.000 gallons a day, when worked
thetr best, hut they do not pump more
than about 6,050,000 gallons dally. There
is no need for more. The capaciiy of the
old engines is not so great, but they are
yet able to supply the city.
A Word to Col. Roowevrlt.
From the Chicago Journal (Ind.)
“They stand for lawlessness and disor
der, for dishonesty and dishonor, for
license and disaster at home, and cow
ardly shrinking from duty abroad.”—Gov.
Roosevelt, speaking about the Democrats.
Come, come. Col. Roosevelt, you don’t
believe that! You don’t believe it, and Re
publicans generally don’t believe It. What
you believe and meant to say is that six
or seven million American citizens who
will vote for Mr. Bryan next fall are
law-abiding and orderly people, honest
and honorable, favoring liberty under
proper restrictions and general prosper
ity at home and manly and unflinching
facing of duty abroad, but that they have
what you believe to be a misconception
of the proper policy of -the government.
That's what you think, Col. Roosevelt.
Then, why not soy it? Mere abuse is
easy. Sometimes it is amusing for a time.
But it is never convincing, and even
when it is clever it entertains only for a
little while. No mud is immortal, and the
American public soon tires of a mud
If there are six or seven millions of
persons in this country who “stand for
lawlessness and disorder, dishonesty and
dishonor, disaster at home and cowardly
shrinking from duty abroad,” God help
the country! It is worse off than China.
But there aren’t.
Be more tolerant, Colonel. Don’t let ihe
vapors of the canvass get into your head,
beating your mind and corrupting your
speech. Remember the fate of Ingalls He
was as clever as you are and almost ns
picturesque, but he mistook the temper
of Republicans. He thought they wanted
• o hear the Democrats abused and slan
dered, and he did, making a very amusing
job of it. Where is he now? Peddling
his unimportant opinions to the yellow
newspapers. Look at Tillman. Another
ease in point. Who heeds Tillman?
Don’t be on Ingalls, Colonel. Don’t be

A PARIDISE FOR CATS.
A liou** In Baltimore Where the
Pet* tre Treated “Like Folks."
From the Baltimore Sun.
Let every cat driven about the city by
dogs listen to this story. There is a place
where cats are honored, a household In
which all the domestic affairs revolve
around a family of cats. It is a large
three-story house on Maryland avenue,
just west of Whittier street. The love
of cats with Miss Lena Pattee, the charm
ing little lady who is at the head of the
house, has grown year by year, until now
she is unable to turn away even a stray.
Did you ever hear of a house where
the cats ruled the dogs? So it is at Miss
Pattee’s. A little brown spaniel is one of
her pets, but if any of the cats, big or
little, become offended at him, Mr. Major
must patiently submit to being cuffed on
the ears. The cats do not scratch him—
they never scratch anybody. Perhaps
this is because they are treated so kind
ly* and never go hunting for rats or mice.
True it is that all the cats In the house
have a different expression from most of
the cats in the world. Their eyes ore
very wide apart giving a logical cast to
the forehead, and the gentlest, sweetest
look beams forth from these mild eyes.
They love to be petted all day long, and
they never scratch or bite. Except Miss
Boots. This is the cat that every one Is
afraid of. She is fierce and vervous, and
her owner says that if Miss Boots should
ever escape from her “room” and get
among the other cats there would be such
an awful cat fight, such breaking of fur
niture, such smashing of window's and
tearing of cat fur that all the three wo
men in the house would run away and
never come back again. Miss Boots ha*
n large room of her own on the third
floor with three windows in it. When
Pattee removed into this new house n
few months ago she furnished Miss Boot’s
room exactly as it seemed that she would
like it. for the black cat belongs to Miss
Pattee’s younger sisters, who are away,
and therefore she must have especial at
tention. There i? oilcloth of a bright pat
tern on the floor, shelve* at every window
where Miss Boots may sun herself, n
chair or two and a pretty white bed witn
clean sheets on it.
The nervous, slender little cat Is not al
together to blame for her Irritability.
She was In South St. Louis in the tornario
of 1896. and her nerves have never been
Just right since then. She has a huge
feather pillow on her bed, and when a
storm ccmes up Miss Boots files lo the pil
low .md buries her head. There Is very
little company at the house, but once In
a while Mis Bools receives visitors be
sides Miss Pattee and the young lady who
Is her companion, and then Miss Boots Is
very reluctant for them to leave. She
v. 11l fly at her guest and bite when the
guest gets- ready to go.
But it is not right, her gentle mistress
says, that Miss Boots should be confined
In her high room all day. There Is a
big basket for her, and for two hours ev
ery day the other cats are ehut up In the
house and Miss Boots is carried down io
sun herself. The cats' gymnasium has
grwn grass under'* a th. but It Is not
quite as free as nature, because there Is a
wire netting above and all around It. so
that the cats cannot get away. The place
Is as big at Bools's room, and the cats
enjov It very much.
The three Angoras never go In the house
unless they are made to do so. The cli
mate is. perhaps, a little too warm for
them. They are very delicate, and one
Angora cat died not very long ago. Miss
Muffett’s coloring is in dainty hues of yel
low. white and gray, ami she haw very
thick heavy fur, sprinkled with extremely
long, silvery hairs. Chinci claims the
same noble blood as Miss Muffet, but he
is part Maltese also. The striping? of
white and Maltese are plainly shown on
his beautiful gray feathery tail. The
other Angora is little Minette. Miss Muf

every day. for if their long hair gets mat

Dame is a common gray cat. who came
as a stray. She doesn't claim much
beauty except for her stripes, but she is
very good, and is “proud of her daughter,
the Jersey Lily, a cat almost white, with
a few' black marks.
Patrick O'Leary is a special pet of his
misires*. He ha an ngraMating Irish
way with him. traceable to nothing el-e
but the fact that he was bern on St.
I atrick’s day H> a big fellow and
wears a green ribbon cn his lirhday. He
n ver tires of being pe.ted, and he has
only ono wdeked desire. That is to ca*ch
the canary bird, which is the monarch
of the ixarlor. Once Patrick knocked the
cage down, and another time be even
had the bird in his mouth, but the little
creature recovered almost imnied.ately
and still sings on. Patrick’s little sister
N*>ra died some time ego, but he has a
companion who resembles him a go and
and nl. Cuba Lbre. The big gray cat was

the Spanish colors alove all thing-.

about cats, and he has prescribed more

Poo's—to tl eir l eiroom. Foch has his

Beots. On the wall is a pretty framed wa

It Is a paradise for cats, as each out
of the colony would say if he could

A GIRL ROI'GH-RIDEIt.
The Varied Accomplishments of Mins
From the New York Commercial.
When Roosevelt’s Rough Riders held
their recent reunion in Oklahoma City.
Miss Lucille Mullhall—e name that some
how suggests the verses of Owen Mere
dith rather than bronchos and lariats—was
the one cbwgirl in attendance, and by far
the greatest attraction there. She is only
14 years old and w’eighs only ninety-two
pounds, but she can break* a broncho, lasso
and brand a steer and shoot a coyote at
500 yards. She can also play Chopin, quote
Browning by the yard, “scan attic me
tres with a critic’s ken’’ and make a
mayonaise dressing on call. As yet she
is a little ashamed of these latter accom
plishments, which are a concession to the
civilized prejudices of her mother. Her
father, Zach Mulhall, Is the greatest live
stoc'k agent of the St. Louis and San Fran
cisco Railroad, but he own? and occupies
a big ranch on Beaver Creek, 50 miles
from Oklahoma City. His other and older
daughter. Miss Agnes, suggested to Hoyt,
the playwright, whatever of a plot there
is in “A Texas Steer’’—and her own per
sonolity may be easily recognized in the
heroine of the play.
All the territory was talking about the
approaching “Rough Riders’ ’’ reunion.
Delegation's came to invite Lucille to give
an exhibition of her frontier accomplish
ments and enter the compe tit ions. Mrs.
Mulhall consented to her daughter's ap
pearance for this occasion only. Lucille,
overjoyed, went into training and was de
lighted to find that her term in the schol
arly shades of the convent had' not less
ened her skill with the lariat and rifle.
Miss Lucille matched her skill and cou
rage against the world of cow punchers
and she covered herself with glory. She
has spent one term at a convent In St.
Louis, but she was homesick for the plains
and glad to mount a fiery cow pony with
a lariat coiled at the pommel. And the
Jowboys welcomed her as if she had been
one of themselves. Mrs. Mulhall smiled
even as she sighed.
In the fall Miss Lucille will return to
the convent, and in the course of time, if
her mother’s hopes be fulfilled, she will
be too dignified a young lady to engage in
any more boisterous diversion than a co
tillon. But she will never forget the proud
moment when, flushed with victory, she
was presented to Gov. Roosevelt, who bow
ed to her ceremoniously and told her that
not a “Rough Rider” in his famous troop
could have done better than she.
