WARNS AGAINST BOOZE
Whiskey should not be given to a persoh who has been
bitteii by a snake" is the warning of Dr. Howard Kelly in a
article on "Snakes and Snake Bite" in the January number
of Hygiea, a popular health magazine published by the Amer
ican iledical association. "Whiskey has buried many a- vic
tim v -ho would have survived; alcohol does nb good but acts
as a depressant" is another hot shot taken, by this high
medical authority, atbooze. j- . '

And the owners of the waiter system have a right to
know what is to be done. If thejeity is to have a vote on the
question1 of buying the system, the time of that vote ought
not to be delayed indefinitely. In fact, it should be done with
every expedition proper in good business practice.
The reason is that Salem is growing, and large extensions
of the maing must be made. j'
The argument in favor of the city owning the water
system is 'that it can borrow miney at a lower rate than is
possible for a private company therefore it can afford to
look to the future and put in larger mains and in other ways
prepare for the growth that is bound to come.
If the city is to own the water system, the sooner the
decision is made the better for all concerned
' !And the owners of the systejm have a right to expect that
they will have a definite! decision, in order that, in case of
a failure of tHe vote to buy, "they may make the best arrange
ments possible for extensions. They cannot make arrange
