NOTES FROM HOIIGMIA.
The election On Monday to rectify
the error of the former election for
the issue of bonds to the amount of
$15,000 for the improvement of and
enlarging the capacity of the water
facilities of this town was a very
tame affair, only 104 votes being
poled, with 85 in favor of and 19
atratnst the issue. It was a fore
gone conclusion that the vote would
be in the aflimative largely and
therefore but few cared to leave
their occupations to cast a ballot,
and besides the great bulk of our
people were in attendance upon the
last rites to be shown our departed
fellow townsman O. F. Knox
Proposals for the purchase ol the
bonds will now be in order and they
will be taken up as boon as put
upon the market September 2, 1901.
Several parties are desirous of
bidding in the issue and one or two
have offered a most liberal bonus.
In anticipation of soon having the
money on hand the City Council is
posting notices for bids for the con
struction of a 50-foot reservoir to be
15 feet deep and lined with stone or
brick and thoroughly cemented,
and for the laying of drainage pipe,
feeders, etc. It is understood that
the pipe for the mains, which is
being contracted for in the east,
may be delayed beyond the time of
its promise, on account of strikes,
but all preparations will be made
for it, so that when it does get here
there will be nothing but the lay
ing of it to complete the system
of water supply. The want of a
sufficient water supply has been
sadly felt in the past, and now that
our town is steadily growing, and
has every expectation of a rapid
growth in the future, no one public
improvement is more necessary
than a bountiful supply of water for
consumption, garden culture,
flower beds and lawn uses and fire
purposes. The rates of insurance
are now very high, but with the
completion of a first-class water
system insurance rates will be ma

DROWNED WHILE BATHING.
The City Council at its meeting
on Monday evening decided to let
a contract for the painting of the
City Hall with a double coat. Thi:
is a move in the right direction and
should have long since been an ac
complished fact. The building oc
cupies a prominent location in the
heart of the city and in plain view
of every stranger that comes to view
our growing town. In the past
the Nugget has called attention
many times to the forlorn ap
pearance of the building in its
nudeness, but the council was
handicapped for funds and could
not have this most necessary work
done. Now it is to be done and
done right, and when finished it
will be a source of pride and pleas
ure for our citizens to point out to
the stranger within our gates the
Wm. Bainbridge, who owns i
small but well kept ranch near Elk
head, Douglas county, was in town
this week, and gives his opinion on
the festive hen, Mr. Bainbridge
thinks the hen properly cared for
is one of the best money producers
a man can have; and to substanti
ate his assertion he tells his recent
experience, as follows: On the
14th of last February he purchased
15 leghorn hens and took them to
his ranch. From these 15 hens he
has marketed $14 worth of eggs to
date, nearly $3 per month. The
fifteen hens are worth probably
$3.50. Can anyone mention any
other kind of stock that will bring
in $3 per mouth on an investment
State school statistics show a
gain of 637 pupils in the last
One of those accidents happened
on Tuesdav evening which spreads
a cloud of the deepest sorrow over
the homes of two otherwise con
tented and happy families. Four
boys who live in and around the
Divide went down to the Coast
Fork near Latham on Tuesday
evening to swim, and two were
taken out of the water dead. The
unfortunates were Guy Lee, 17
years of age, the son of Bert Lee;
Martin Tucker, 13 years old, the
son of W. W. Tucker. While
bathing in a deep hole the younger
boy was suddenly taken with
a cramp and the older boy went to
his assistance. The little fellow,
realizing his danger and becoming
thoroughly frightened, grabbed the
older boy in such a manner that he
was powerless to make the rescue
or assist himself. The other two
boys swam to their companions to
aid them, but in the struggle were
forced to free themselves and seek
safety, while the Lee and Tucker
boy sank from sight and were
drowned. The bodies were re
covered later and taken to the
homes of their respective parents
This is one of those takings away
that brings a shock to the entire
neighborhood. These young boys
were bright and industrious and
worked with their fathers in the
wood business. It is one of those
unlooked for trials upon the be
reaved ones that in its very sudden
ness makes the grief so hard to
bear. The families of.these boys
have the deep sympathy of all of
their friends and neighbors. The
interment took place Wednesday
afternoon iu Odd Fellows cemetery
west of town and was largely a.
tended by numerous friends of both
