SOFT WATER SUPPLY ' / \ / Of Great Importance in Kitchen, Bathroom and Laundry. Chief Advantage of Rain Water le That It l« 8oft and Free From lmpurltles->Concrete Clatern I Makes Ideal 8torage. A plentiful supply of water, free from seepage and Impurities, is aB necessary for the kitchen, bathroom and laundry as for drinking purposes. For cleaning and like uses there is nothing so helpful as an abundance of soft water, and the Ideal storage place Is a concrete cistern. The chief ad- vantages of rain water are that It is "soft" and free from impurities and minerals, which call for the ubo of destructive soaps and chemicals, says the Oklahoma Farm Journal. To pre- serve the purity of rain water the walls of a cistern must be water tight. A well constructed cistern of concrete will keep out all ground water and will also prevent the water within from leaking away in the dry season vermin and scrubwater. After the concrete walls have been brought to ground level set a wooden frame a...

This was only said by way of passing, in an editorial in which we explained that we had no unkind feeling for Senator Bailey, personally, and that we were glad that he had arrived at that decision. We have no de- sire to discuss the so-called Bailey question because his an- nouncement makes that unnec- essary. But whether it be true or not, thousands of people in Texas agree with us that Mr. Bailey could not have been re- elected and that his own realiz- ation of that fact is responsible for the announcement by him that he will retire from offi...

IWhat Becomes f Old Actor Ar EMMETT C, KINO ISSSi^cT N the winter of 1882 the theatrical managers of New York and Brook- lyn decided that. In order to re- lieve the many cases of distress reported throughout the theatrical profession, it was necessary to cre- ate a permanent fund which would be immediately available for the purpose. This fund was to be known as the "Actors' Fund." but as it was to be raised by the efforts of all classes connected with the business of, public amusements, it would be devoted, with- out reservation, to any and all persons who have been connected with said amusements. In any capacity whatsoever. Benefit performances were given at the prin cipal theaters in New York and Brooklyn on a certain day for the purpose of creating a founda- tion for the fund. The receipts from the Bale of tickets and donations for these performances ■were $39,335.80. Among the largest donations were: James Gordon Bennett, $10,000; John Ja- cob Astor, $2,600; Edwin Booth. $1,000....
