trouble and uneasiness on account of no supply at times Of course being a stranger the editor does not know where the fault lies but it ii- n precarious condition tor a town to he without water at any time Inquir this reek resulted in the information wthatbe repaired in a day or two This break was done by the railroad or tIle force of the stream from the pipes where the engines take water This break down and in general a breakdown is unavoidable but some are not and are the cause of neglect We don t know the cause for the complaint by T the Hickman people but if the servi is poor it should be remedied at once oven if the city authorities have io bor row the money It is not only an in tonvenieuco but is unsafe for the people in general Suppose a fire would breakout in the business portion of the city when the water supply is out likely the entire business portion would be con sumed and this would practically ru ffickmarf The ciEy is now in a pros perous condition and will

diseases that medical nun have to cjnteurl with can be prevented by the use of Chamber lains Cough Remedy Pneumonia always results from an attack of in flneuza grip and it has been observed that this remedy counteracts any tendency of these diseases toward pneumonia This has been folly proven in ninny thousands of cases iu which this remedy has been used during the great prevalence of colds and
