RAILROADS MAY NOT USE FILTERED RIVER WATER IN OFFICES

INDICATIONS ARE PRESET SERVICE WILL BE CONTINUED

The question of whether the local railroads will continue to supply their offices with spring and mineral water brought here from Lake Maxinkuckee and Lake Cicott has not been decided as yet. With the opening of the new filter plant the practice may be stopped, though the water is so far superior to Eel river water even when filtered that the chances are the service will be continued

The Panhandle offices are supplied from Lake Cicott. and the Vandalia from Lake Maxinkuckee. Recent tests of the water which supplies the Vandalia passenger trains indicate that the water is excellent and as it comes from a deep well near the local shops this water will be used in preference to the filtered river water.

The Panhandle trains are being supplied with water from their own fliter plant here. The service as far as is known has been satisfactory and will be continued until the plant has been satisfactorily tested. l Logansport Journal-Tribune Thursday March 25, 1915

Paragon Fishing Club's Name Undergoes Change

Members of t h e f a m o u s Paragon Fishing club are in disgrace. In seasons past, these noted fishermen have hled themselves biannially to Maxinkucke. whipped the waters of that noted fishing and then returned laden ground with great strings of the finny denizens of the eddies and bayous. But the skill of the old daya has departed and the name of the flshing organization has been changed to Paragon "Wishing" Club,

Wednesday the members of the club, weighted down with fishing tackle and "bait" took' passage for Maxlnkuckee and in due time landed safely in the headquarters of the club at the lake, After lunch the alleged graduates from the school of the famous Frank Walton chartered boats and took to the waves, They went where thie fish were wont to congregate in, large bunches and cast their lines in pleasant places and proceeded, to wait. They waited all afternoon and evening, and into the night and then the morning, but there was not a bob at the cork nor a twitch of tho line anywhere along the battle front. All kinds of devices were tried to coax a fish to bite. Val Strebel offered to bet J ulius Wagner that not a man of the bunch would have a bite and being a real sport J ulius took the bit. He lost, and Val is ahead a half dollar.

Yesterday morning the whole bunch of fishermen came home with less enthusiasm and "bait" than they took with them on Wednesday on the out trip Logansport Pharos-Reporter Saturday May 1 1915
