Tuewlay night water was turned
out of the Pilot Hulte canal and the
work of enlarging that channel be
gau next day. It will probably Ik
completed down to Jteml in two
weeks, so the water service to the
townsite may be resumed. Tin
canal is to be made captble of
carrying 150 cubic feet of water u
second; now it carries about f
cubic feel a second. A large part
of the miscalculation in the tirst
place is due to the sut prising teuton v

Dr. C. W. Merrill is formulating
plans for a hospital at Ileud. Ho
expects to have it in running order
early next year.
The new structure will proliabl)
adjoin the drugstore on the south,
there being 30 feet of sjwee be
tween the drugstore ami the south
edge of the lot. Ujioii that a two
slorv .structure will be planned for
hospital accomodations. It is jxm
sible that the lower jmrt will be
rented for some business not iiicom
iMliblc with the hospital above, but
that U not settled yet.
The main idea is to provide a
suitable place for surgical opera
tions and serious cases of illness
which are likely to call for Secial
treatment. The size of the institu
tion will dcM!iid much upon the
growth of the community in the
coming three mouths. .
