anfcmittod to the Klamath Falls city
"Very material improTement has
' aeon made In the general condlfloni
r the city since the former surrey.
-Ta. firo chief has been active In In
spection work and the results of his
tforts aro Tory apparont. The city
1b ullo frde from the haxard of rub-
Dish and housokeoplng conditions In
Keaeral are found to bo better. The
general conflagration hazard has
also been somewhat reduced owing to
the removal of a number of frame
baildings. Many have been burned,
taors torn down and removed. The
naxard has been reduced at least ten
Improvement has also been made In
the electrical wiring. Many houses
Have been rewired in an approved
.saanncr. Tho Inspoctlon, however,
rovealod the pnactlco of bridging fuse
alags in a great many places, in fact
to such an extent as to make the eloc
' trie hatard bad.'
' Dry Grass Manure
.One condition noted which con
stitutes a serious hazard and which
should be remedied, is tho growth of
dry grass and weeds allowed to ro-
sanla on vacant lots and premised
near to inflammable buildings, it
wold bo a. very easy matter tor fire
to start In 'these places from sparks
or cigarctto stubs and be the cause
of a, serious ,f Ire in buildings. This
condition should not be permitted.
Water Bystcsn and Sounro of Hupply
rxbe source of the water supply Is
the' same aa at the timo of the orlg-
taal survey of tho city of Klamath
, Vails. There have been several Im
provements made to tho water sys-j
tern, viz.: The pumping plant baa
been housed in a nelr cement block
'house with cement floor and corru
gated Iron roof. The O. W. Price,
centrifugal pump, and the fiould tri
plex pump which aro tho pumps tuatj
were in operation at tho timo of thq
former Mirrey, have boon overhauled
aid re-sot on now foundations. In
addition a new Byron Jackson cen
trifugal pump of 1,200 gallons per
jnlnute capacity, has been installed. '
It has an eight-inch Intake and out-1
let. It Is operated by a .Westing-1
house motor of 125 horse power, dl
, liCak bi Kmcrvoln
Two .Booster pumps .have been In
stalled to. force the water to the cen
tral and east reservoirs. These pumps
, aro connected at some distance below
. the reservoirs on, by passes from the
aulas and are automotacally operate
red, by floats in the reservoirs, so that
taay keep the reservoirs filled at all
. tiaras. Those two reservoirs were
found to be filled and In apparent
good condition. Tho other reservoir
. 'located on tho opposlto side of the
. Tiver was found to bo but one-third
toll and leaking.
Hydrants in I'oor Condition
J There has been no. change or Im
provement in the. water males or
vkydrant. The mains are of such
laasall. size and great length that tho
frictlpnal loss Is quite' serious and
the Inspection of the hydrants
showed many of them to be leaking
and In need of repair. '
, Many of the hydrants In the
business portion of the city were
toand to bo In a leaky condition.
, ; The following test at 6th and
Vain streets, using two one-Inch
aossles on hydrants gave the fol
lowing reading. One noizlo 60
-soBBds', 229 gallons per minute.
, Two .nozzles open 209 gallons per
atinnte. A 'static gauge on hyd-
r rants at 5th and Main showed a
Arop of five' pounds .with the flow
t'treni the two nozzles.
J?te Department and Equipment
, yTJiere- has been an addition of
roao paid fireman to the department
Mace the survey' of 1919.
p The only improvement In the fire
aulpment Is the addition of 1000
rtost of standard 2 inch hose,
"We recommend that the city em
ploy an expert hydraulic engineer
to make a thorough survey of the
city,, and draw plans and spoclflcn
tlons for an adequate and propor
water system for the city. This Is
a very noccssary thing for tho
future development and' prosperity,
not to mention safety, of Klamath
We recommend that an automat'
lc firo alarm system bo installed,
proferably a box system which
should be of approved type.
Wo recommend the purchase of
one triple combination pumper of
at least 1000 gallons per minute
capacity. The need for this fire
fighting machine is Imperative.
There aro large mills with but little
fire protection which are long dist
ances from the city. The mill ponds
anil lakes near theso mills furnish
unlimited water supply for firo pro
tection available for use with an
adequato pumping engine. Theso In
dustries are vital to the growth and
woltare of Klamath Falls and aro
entitled t0 adequate fire protection.
This equipment will not only pro
tect them but will be adoquato pro
tection for the city for some years
to come and will pay for Itself In
a short; time In the saving of' pro

i To look one's bl and feet one's best
is to enjoy an inside bath each morning
to flush from the system the previous
day's waste, sour fermentations and poi
sonous toxins before it Is absorbed Into
the blood. Just as coal, when it burns,
leaves behind a certain amount of In
combustible material in tba form of
ashes, so the food and drink .taken each
day leave in tb alimentary organs a
cenain amount or inaigeiiiDie msteriaj.
which If not eliminated, form toxins aad
poisons which are then sucked Into the
blood through the very duct which are
intcnaea to suck in only nourishment to
sustain the body.
If you want to see the glow of healthy
bloom in your checks, to see your skin
ct clearer and clearer, you are told to
drink every morning upon Arising, a
plass of hot water with a teaspoonful
of limestone phosphate in It, which is a
harmless means of washing the waste
material and toxins from the stomach,
liver, kidneys and bowels, thus cleans
ing, sweetening and "dying the entire
alimentary tract, before putting more
food Into the stomach.
Girls and women with sallow skins,
liver spots, pimples or pallid complex
ion, abo those who wake up with a
coated tongue, bad taste, nasty breath.
'others who are bothered with headschet,
bilious spells, acid stomach or constipa
tion should begin this photphated hot
water drinking and are assured ot very
oronouncea results in one or two week.
A ousrter pound of limestone nhos-
phate costs very little at the drug store
but is sufficient to demoustrste that lust
as soap asa not water cleanses, putlCes
and freohens the skin on the'outslde, so
hot water and limestone phosphate act
on the Inside onrans. We must alwavf
consider that internal sanitation is vast
ly more Important than outside cleanli
ness, because the skin pores do not ab
