Spring Water Proves to
Pure by Close Analysis
New Supply at Fair Ground Con
tains Nothinf to Injur.
In order to determine the purity of
the water in the spring tapped for
supply at fair grounds, the mana-'
geds sent a sample to the univers
ity for analysis. The chemicH re- j
port was to the effect that the
water was absolutely pure., it con
taining nothing that could in any
way be considered injurious to
health. This is gratifying in the
light of reports concerning the
supply at the grounds heretofore,
and should set the public mind at
rest in that respect.
Many Visitors In Maupin !
Taking advantage of Sunday and
Labor Day coming together many
people from Portland and other
places visited the Deschutes for an
cutjng. Some good catches of trout
have been reported as having been
made by the visitors. ,
, Some people seem to have a mania
for taking the property of others.
Lately someone visited Dr. Dake's'
homestead shack up the river and
took away several articles, including
some blankets. Last Friday night
a man registered at the Home Hotel
and when he left the ncxt'morning
he was accompanied by one of Mrs.
Miller's homemade comforters.
Such petty theivery merits the sever
est condemnation, and if caught the
perpetrators may expect to be dealt
with according to law.
