'TOO, UC?TI WATER AND TOO LITTLE. Water is one of the few essentials of human existence. We can no more do without it than we can withllout bread. Like fire, it is a good servant but a bad master. It is, iq the metaphorical language of Coun cillor Knipb, "a precious element"-but an element of-which we can have either too much or too little.

And the worst of the matter ig, that the short supply i'ariabli y occurs when pllenty is most needed. As sure, as a hot wind occurs so sure are our water taps to fail us-if not entirely, at least to dribble forth such. a meagre quantity as to be all but useless. In colder climates, such a deprivation would not be felt half to niuch as it is in our case, where, as re...
