The city was without water last night and in case a fire had broken out the town would have been absolutely with out protection. Repairs . were being made at the intake jn the mountain and he water shut off and when the engine was fired up at the river it was discov ered that the main was broken thus the connection was shut off at both ends of -the line. Perhaps a little censure mav ' be due to some one having the matter ' in charge for not seeing to the river connection before shutting off the main but having passed the critical period jet all rejoice that we escaped the dan ger and remember that the water plant has ever been conducted on business principles, The people spend too much time finding fault with 'their neighbors instead of emulating their noble deeds thus making the world purer and better.
