A great difforeuco of opinion existed as to whether one got out of a bath cleaner than lie got in. The great question was, 'AYliyis this?' All at once the water came to us much clearer. Then wild rumours went around to tho effect that tons and tons of lime had bnnm, t.lnvm-»i intr. tho reservoir, killing millions of smallfish, eels, and frogs. This, it was asserted, was the cause of the sudden supply of clear water, and also of the 'aroma,' of tlie water. Others asser ted that a ton of alum had been thrown into the reservoir. During the week wo wont out to see tho fish, and certainly did find two or three little dead fish and one, dead frog in the third filter bed. However, Mr. Brown, the engineer, informed us that this was a by no means uncommon occurrence. He has not seen the mil...

The information which Mrs. Joy had given them was a source of special anxiety to Madgo, apart from her con siderations on Pansy's account. If Caleb had reallv determined to leave the country at once, Philip would lose his most able assistant in carrying out tho work, which was already present ing so many unforeseen and unprovided fur difficulties, that it was severely tax ing tho strength of body and mind. Besides the few men' who still main tained a half-hearted allegiance would take alarm when they found that oven Caleb the foreman had deserted, and abondon their leader altogether.
