WATER WORKS, AND EXTENSIONS FOR $16,000 Engineers Recommened Open Well Near Intersection of • Wheatori and McEwan Streets for Water Supply. PLANS FOR WATER WORKS AND SEWERAGE SYSTEMS. Trunk Sewer to Seventh Street with Extension to Fifth andMcEwan Will Cost $2,700. Plans, specifications and estimates for a complete system of sewerage and waterworks as well as grade for side walks, all carefully worked out from the survey made two months ago, are now in the hands of the city authorities. Three large maps set forth respectively the proposed waterworks system, storm sewer and sanitary sewer as adopted to the topography of the city. Accompanying blue prints indicate all necessary details, and specifications and estimates jare exhaustively given. As far as can be judged the work has been most thoroughly done. The survey was made by John White of this city and reduced to diagramatic form at the offices of the Sherman Biggs Co.. of Toledo, Ohio., who are to receive $500 for the entire work. To install a complete system of sanitary sewer, *iv4terworks and storm sewet for the whole city would involve the expenditure of something over ■ STO.OOO^but a large portion of each of these systems, especially the last named, will not be needed for many years, and probably never installed. •These plans and estimates give a basis for all future improvements relative to water supply, sewerage and street grade and doubtless would have saved the taxpayers large sums of money had they been made tenyearsago. SANITARY SEWERAGE. The sanitary sewerage system contemplates using the Little Tobacco rivet as the means of outlet, the trunk sewer to empty therein near the Glare Ice Oo. ice house or at a-point about Where the eastern extension of Eighth "street-would intercept the Little Tobacco. The trunk sewer is tb be fifteen inches in diameter and -is to ex-* tend southwest across Liunb's addi- , tion to Seventh street. Here various branches are to extend from it, the %he main one to be twelve inches in diameter and to* extend down Jefferson street to Fifth street and west on that street. ITrom ITifth street one principal branch is to extend down Pine street to Third street where one extension is to be made tp the first ward across the creek and another to McEwan and Fourth streets just north of the P. M. tracks. Six and Seventh streets northwest of the Calkins are to empty into Fifth street. A lesser system provides drainage for Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh streets across the creek. The size of pipes vary from fifteen inches for the trunk pipe down to eight for the smallest one used. The total length of sewer for which p'ans are made 'is six and one half miles and the 'estimated cost 83,558 per mile or a total cost Of 823,125.82. With the purpose of fact i eating the early installing of a part of the sewer system, a separate estimate is made as to cost of the trunk sewer to Sevehtlj street and its extension down Jefferson to Fifth and west a ong that street to McEwan. The estimated cost of this portion, for which a number of residents along * he route have been laying plans for some time, is $2,728.34. It is understood that a petition for the construction of this sewer will be presented in .the immediate future and that the work will be done this fall. The cost of construction will fall very largely on the property owners along the route. It will be apportioned by special assessors JB. H. Waller and someone to be appointed in place of the late iA. W. Mclntyre. WATER WORKS SYSTEM. Three sites for the location of a power house with ready supply of water are submitted. One is northwest Of the city where the Ann Arbor railroad crosses the Tobacco river. The distance of this, from the city proper would entail an additional expense of $8,000. Another possible location is at the Tobacco river north on McEwan street. Tbis because of distance involved would mean added cost of $3,500. The site recommended is just off Wheaton avenue, east or west of McEwan st. It is proposed that preliminary tests for" water be made there and that, if found in sufficient quantities, a large open- well be put down to the water-bearing gravel. If water is lacking there, then the siteat the river on McEwan street is to be preferred." Two thirty horse power gosoline engines are to furnish power for pumping. Two triplex power pumps, capable of lifting 350 gallons per minute against fi:re pressure of seventy-eight pounds per square inch, are to force the water over the city. The total .cost for a complete system for the who e city, including all xjew mains, is about $32,000. But 15,000 of this is allowed for cost of mains and pipes. It is estimated that less than $6,000 will build a power house, install, pumps and engines and make water available for pumping. The mains to be used for carrying water over the city are to be ten, eight and six inch. The supply main down McEwan street is to, be. ten inch with branches therefrom accord-, ing to* the needs of water Supply. Provision is made that there shall be a comp e'te circuit for water in every case except for the extension to the factory district west of the city* Two good-fire streams for any part of the city are provided for while on McEwan street six fire streams are made available. The present mains in Clare are eight inch on McEwan street with their extensions on side streets four inch. All are of wood but are found to be perfectly solid. The new mains are to be iroh. •Davy & Company WATER WORKS FOR EVERY HOUSE FOR $16,000. The p!an for waterworks as briefly outlined above is what ih the judgement of the engineers should* be installed, as a complete system for the whole city, independent of what is now in operal ion. But not all of this need be installed now. The present mains can all bo utilized.

All new mains laid are to be iron and are to be in eyery particular in accordance with the specifications for the general plan. These new mains by means of reducers are to join on to (he present ones. For, example the water main on S*a*e sireeo extends only to Pine street but the plan submitted is to install iron mains from that point to Cedar street* at Clute's corners and down that, street to Seventh and then west to join the present main. On Fifth street the main would be extended from Pine street at C. H. Sutherland's two blocks, east to Jackson street and then, south to Fourth street and west, on that street. From First street the main would be extended to county line, etc. In this way the water system would be extended so as to give ample fire protection to every house in the platted portion of thecity.' The estimated cost, thus to give fire protection to all, is about $16,000. .This will be entirely in conformity yifith the general plan, previously given, and in future years as any part of the present wooden mains fail they will be rep'aced -with ircin ones according to the general plans and specifications now a partof the city records. The board bf public wori*s favor this [proposal and oh their recommendation the city council is expected forthwith to submitthe matter to the people on a proposition to bond the city for the required sum. STORM SEWER SYSTEM. ' The plans submitted call for separate sanitary and storm sewers. Formerly it was usual to combine the two systems. To do this requires such large sewer pipes to carry the water that in recent years, engineers plan separate systems. In tbe case of Clare a number of short, independent systems to carry oil surface water are planned, nearly all to empty into the Little Tobacco. Foi* example the one already installed, running from McEwan street along Third street to the creek, js in accordance with the plans submitted in in that it is a twenty-four inch pipe, and it is designed to be the main outlet for the surface water from the business part of the city north of the railroad. In this system ten, twelve, fifteen, eighteen and twenty-four inch pipe is to be used according to the volume of water to be carried off. A complete system would be three miles long and cost $16,700, but a very large portion of it will scarcely ever be necessary. It is to be hoped that the time will come wben Clare will need all the complete systems out lined in the' p'ans and specifications some of the city dads are now said to be earnestly engaged in studying.," But whether any part of them shall be carried into effect in the immediate future, it is the purpose of the city council, for the taxpayeas to. decide. Meanwhile it is well for all our people to get as much information as possible on these subjects. At the Marriage Altar. MORRISSEY—JOHNSON*. (Harrison Correspondent.)

After a visit with relatives in Detroit they weut to" Harrison this week, their future home. The groom was formerly a resident of Farwell. The bride was a teacher, an amiable and popular young lady among a large circle of friends in Cob- neaut. Mr. and Mrs. Dudley have the best wishes of many friends. Details of that Hail Storm. From the Gladwin Record we give a description of the damage done by the recent hail storm in Hamilton township: The storm came from the northeast and destroyed 13 acres of* peas and a large amount of other crops for William Nash and all of George Van- Horn's spring crop. George Stockton's garden and spring crops- were damaged. John Myers' crops and garden were damaged. These are all in Sherman township, near Skeels. Between Dodge" and Skeels the storm swept over Orr Campbell's farm, destroying his garden and about four acres of wheat and two acres of peas, damage would be about $25, next coming to Stanchfield Bros.' farm, completely destroying their fine garden, equal to any in the county, damage to crops and garden about' $25. Stanch- field's wheat was cut and shocked, so it escaped. Chartey .Keanester's fine corn Held was completely stripped, of leaves. lie was alittle south of t}ie main storm, Sam 'Wilson's fine farm lay next in the path of the storm. His crops were mostly wheat, oats and barley. The wheat was ripe and it shelled it badly, and left the ground covered with wheat. His damage woulo\be about $50. There wore hail stones two inches deep in the wheat field where the wheat was thick 14 hours after the storm where the wheat was being bound. The storm was not over a mile wide but the ice and water were six inches deep on the level. Are you a student in the I*. Resolve to grow! Make life while. Study! O.

I hereby offer my faithful patrons my extreme regret that I am obliged to close my creamery because my .butter maker bas accepted a better position without previously notifying me. To me this is not an unmitigated evil as many farmers are hard to please aud drop off, especially in the fall and let my teams pass their doors without fcrylbg to encourage and sustain the business that held tbem up during the hot weather, Hoping th-it some man of nerve and good health will another season take up'tbe work ahd stand by the loyal ones better than .my health a-ad ability has enabled me to do, 1 remain with kindest regards to all. •, E. SwmfisR. Gleaned From Isabella Doings. It if, proposed to inaugurate a county aQDuai farmer's picnic for some time in August. Comr, H. A. Graham was elected member of Mt. Pleasant board of education by acclamation. Mt. Pleasant's board of public works are not well impressed with the idea of increasing the city's water supply from Duck lake. A new water tank 125 feet high with a capacity of 32,000 gallons bas been installed at the government Indian school at MS. Pleasant. **-" One of the county papers bewails the lack of matrimonial interest just now, no marriage licences having been issued during the last week of July. Mt. Pleasant Courier condoled with the Clare Courier because neither of them were able flrst to publish the census for their respective cities, -but were "scooped" by their republican brethren. Echoes of the recent visit of the state tax commissioners are heard in . ttie presence of two mysterious gentlemen investigating the personal prop*. erty valuation at Mt. Pleasant. It appears chat the tax commission is determined that tbe prescribed boast of property valuation shall be a fact. A class of 53 graduated from tbe Normal last week.
