The Philippine Car was at Mid

it say it very closely resembled the
Florida Car that was through here
about four years ago.

The Adamshiirg Herald last week
says: While the finances of the
county are in excellent condition,
the tax-pavers should not infer from
the statements recently published
that there are no obligations of any
kind to meet. We learn that the
county commissioners must borrow
atxmt j4(K)() to meet certain obliga
tions now due, chief among which
are the building of the Mahantongo
bridge and the joint bridge at Rich
field. Since the new board went
into oflice, bills amoimtingover 700
have been paid, making it necessary
to effect the loan above referred to.
The farmers of the United States
have long needed a good work on
Swine, a practical, concise and common-sense
hook without any padding
or humbug about it. They have it
in the form of No. 6 of The Biggie
Books called Biggie Swine Book.
It is profusely, illustrated with
photographs direct from life ot the
different breeds of hogs, etc., etc.
Much attention is given to western
and eastern practices, ill the diseases
ot hogs, aapeceaJfy to cholera, to
feeding, breeding, butchering audi he
carving ot meats for home use and
market. There are 144 jwges print
ed on the best pap'T and bound
handsomely in cloth. Some breeders
heve thought it was not xssible to
make a good photograph of a hog,
but the score or more of handsome
engravings made directly from photo
grahs will go far to dispel this
illusion. All the leading breeds are
shown and briefly discussed in the
text The price is 50 cents, free by
mail; address the publishers, Wilmer

Water Work3 for Middleburg
A. K. Gift Explains How We Can Sa
cure Water Work; Cheap.
Lincoln, neb.. Jan. 24, 1900.
Mr. I. A. Kkrx,
M IDDI.KBUn.GH, Pa.
Dkab 1'i;ii:m: li i
time now since I beard from yotK
I will write hoping to receive an
answer. Mrs. Gift and! are botfk
well and have enjoyed good health,
ever since we came west, Nebraska
seems to have a healthy climate.
The air is clear and pure. 'Phis U
caused by the high altitude. Ne
braska is much higher than Pennai
We have but very little levers here
of any kind and not many cases of
Lincoln, the capital of the state,
is a fine little city, containing now'
about (10,(1(1(1 people. The water is
very good and pure. It is all well
water, pumped by steam pow er into
.-land pipe- or standing reservoiraj
There are three or four such in the
city of large capacity. The pres
sure is plenty heavy enough for all
purposes in ease of fire. There are
here wry good and eliieient live com
panies. One really feels more se
cure hereon account of lire than the
citiens do in Middleburgh, Pa. I
hold that a small town requires lire
protection of some kind as well as
a larger city only on a smaller and
cheaper scale. Since I am west
I often think about the unprotected
state Middleburgh and Franklin
are in. There is no occasion for
this at all in towns like Middleburgh
and Franklin, for there is plenty of
water in an underflow under ground
which can be retched by putting
down wells, besides both towns are
partly surrounded by running
streams of water which could lc
Utilized and using a stand pipe, by
pumping, but it seems to me the
most economical way to procure a
system of water works to supply
said towns, as a lire protection and
for domestic use would be to utilize
the large spring south of the towns
near the green mountain distillery if
a right of way can be procured, by
using underground pipcsofsutlicicnt
site to Franklin and Middleburgh.
The first step would lie to test the
How of said spring as to how much
per minute. If the supply seems
to be sufficient, the next step should
be to run a line of levels from the
spring to Franklintlieiiee to Mid
dleburgh and further to a point
north or north-west from Middle
burgh, to a point where the ground
is high enough where a reservoir
should lie built to procure force
enough that a stream thrown wouh
reach over the town, in case the
spring would lie used, it would re
(piire a storage reservoir cither at
the spring or at a high place north
or north-west of Middleburg as al
If the storage reservoir was at the
spring, it would require breast
walls of stone masonry perhaps on
three sides of sufficient height and
strength to hold the water. This
would in itself create a heavy pres
sure which could le measured by a
competent civil or hydraulic en
gineer. It said storage reservoir was at a
point near Middleburgh, it would
merely lie scooped out of the ground
and may only require one stone
breast wall on the lower side, ibis
reservoir would be continually ex
posed to the sun and become un
clean and unhealthy during the
summer season. The reservoir at
the spring would be preferable as it
would furnish cleaner, purer and
A water plant, something like
this, would be more economical than
the other plant noted above by
pumping process. It would require
no engine, no engineer to work it,
no fuel, no pumping machinery, no
complication, and nothing to get out

of order, to amount to a great deal.
Gravity would bring the water to
the door of ever) citizen of Middle
burgh and Frankliu with but very
little cost to each one and all prop
erty would have a lire protection.
Fire insurance rate- would be lower
at least by one-third, The citizens
could retire and go i -hep on a
stormy night and feel quite secure
on account of fire. The dreaded
Idea that perhaps bv to-morrow
morning their homes are destroyed i
will no more disturb their lui ,'ters,

It will destroy the element called;
lire, and (he brave boys called the lire !
oompany are back of it, and know!
how to handle it, who will not alone
protect the citizens' property, but
lllso the lives of the people. The.
latter loss i- always the most dread
ed, for money w ill restore property,
but life never.
I remember this old saying,
Fooli.-h people make money, bill
only the wise keep it. Foolish people
build cities and houses and the wise
know how lo preserve and protect
them. Yours very respectfully,
