A J,igiit in the Window.
It is a pathetic story that is told
of the grief of the wife of John Y
McKane, the Grayesend ''boss," who
is now serving a teim in the New
York penitentiary for election
fiaudp. It is said that a light
shinea all night from an upper win
dow of McKane's home. Every
night his wife places it theie, "so
that John may see the way when he
comes home," she says. "He went
away in the morning, but I always
thmk that he will come back after
sunset, and I want him to know
that we are waiting for him."
Never has the wife ceased to look
for hi3 coming, but hope is almost
dead, and her physicians say that
she has not long to live. While the
ex-boss has grown fat in prison, the
: crushed the woman'd heart and
broken ir. Thi3 is a sad stciy, and
tbe worst of it is that the burden
has fallen the hoariest where it
should be the lightest. Norfolk

A Reservoir nt the llnttnm nf n. RnM
Mine Shaft The New Main Will
Empty Into the New Tank.
Facilities for furnishing water to
consamers in this city are being in
creased. The water at the electric
light station, where the old reservoir
stands, has not been sufficient for
the demand during the past sum
mer, but arrangements are being
made to furnish an unlimited quan
tity from now on. Mr. P B Fetzer
owner of the Concord water works,
is putting a reservoir at the bottom
of the main shaft of the old Reed
gold mine, about three hundred
yards back of Central Methodist
church. The bottom of the shaft is
solid rock and the supply of water
that emerges into the fifteen foot
square reservoir is simply enormous.
He is placing a pump in the shaft
and will pump a four inch stream
of water into the new tank when it
is complete. The new water main
strikes East Depot street at the M L
Ritch residence and runs up Depot
street on to the tank. The water is
clear and cold and has been tnor
oughly anal zed and pronounced
good and healthy. The shaft is
about G5 feet deep.
