Extra Flow of Two Million
Gallons Daily Forecast;
Will Tax Line Capacity.
That the new spring being developed
above Thorn Holnw will provide ap
proximately two million gallons of
extra water aily for the water system
Is the belief of Frank Hays, engineer
and superintendent who returned this
morning, from the construction camp.
The main spring has not yet been
reached and the new line is already
flowing 800,000 gallons dully, Mr.
Hays says. The main spring will easily
provide a million gallons more and
when the new development is complet
ed there will he sufficient cool spring
water to fill the main pine line to the
city to capacity.
The new spring will provide more
water and better water than is being
secured from the Chapllsh spring or
any of the other springs. After the
new line Is completed It Is Mr. Hoys
view that the city will have such a suf
ficient water supply that no further
extension will be required for four or
No name has yet been given to the
new spring but It may be willed the
North Chapllsh spring. The new
ource of supply was discovered by O.
M. Rice and Frank Hays while on an
Inspection trip a year or two ago.

years higher training. Portia n.l asks
that a teacher have a high school di

as a higher fee goes to the trained

"Make the most of yourselves," he
said. "Be the kind of teacher that j
