A  list of the' cases in which action has .  been take:v.

Fawkes. Avas  well known  to  the  three instigators of the plot, ibut  had no share in devising it. He was  sough1: out   by   Winter alt  Ostend  and-; .h'..< two then crossed to London,   There,   in   a   house   beyond  Clement's Inn, he     and     another,  nalrn^d.   Thomas   Percy,   were   informed     and     approved     of the  scheme and  the  five  conspirators  receivedt he sacrament from Fa-  i ther Gerard, a   Jesuit priest, who  ' was a thand.   Towards- the end of  May, 1604, Percy, acting under Cats  by's orders hired a   house adjoining-'' hz[ Pariiiment buildings,from  tbn. cellars of whiah it was proposed to 'drive a   tunnel, and prepare  a     mine.     Fawkes now assumed  the name of Johnson, and took care  oi  the house,'passing him3eJf    ff'  as  Percey'3   servant.   In   July, the  parliament was adjourned until the  following     February, and it   was  not. until late in. I^ecemiber that the  plotters, broughtj..n; toob and .provisions and commenced- operations  in the cellar.   The excavations pro  ved.more d.fficult than was anticipated, and John Wright's brother  Christopher, aind  Robert     Keyes,  who had been previously sworn   in  but ihad 'been told off to take care  A >a   home  at Lambeth,     where  materials for the mine were,collect  ed, were sent for to help in the tun  neling.   Learning   that  the  opening O/f Parliament was to'foe deferred until October, work was sua  pended for a tim'e, but later .was  omee<'raor^ recommenced,-with the  aid of others..  '   In-May, 1605, all was ready, an-)  Fawkes was sent'over to Flanders,  to (acquaint  Sir William  Stanley,  'he ichlef English Catholic who had  joinedt he Spanish  army,  of their  intentions and to isecure !his co-op-  ation.   From this' journey he     returned in August,  and      learning  ���������Kit: iPrrllanv-mt   woild   meet   on  November 5. busied himself in re- '  pla-oing .with   dry   barrels', those  in the. cellar that were injured .by  damp.   Faiwkes was  to  fre      the  train,  ur-ing a   s'ow  mat-ih, whi-h  would al'ow him fifteen minutes to  get .away.   He was then to embark  for Flanders and spread the news  on the continent.  Fa.wkes .wais fornd in .the cellar  md placed in prison.   He confessed.   The conspirators were sentenced to be "drawn, hanged and quar  tered.';'   Fawkes   was   the   last- to  mount the scaffold, on Janu.iry ?1.  and being weak with torture and  siekress, he had to be assisted up  '.he ladder.    /We are told that ."he  made no long speech, but after a  sort seeming sorry i'or his offence  asked a   k'nd of forgiveness of the  King, .and the State, for his bad  tent, and so died."  HYPOChLORITE TREATMENT  pF WATER.   o N  The attention of the public as  well as health and municipal authorities, has.been directed during  the past few months tp the purification of water by means of the  addition of small, very small quantities -of .hypochlorite of calcium,  'therwiso known a..s chloride of  lime. We. have been led to believe the process is a very sfmple  one ; Indeed so simple that a child  might almost direct the treatment  It is true that in case of emergency, municipal and Jieaith author-  sanitary engineer, improvise the  means for the application of the  hypochlorite and thus prevent.outbreaks of typhoid fever when the  wai:r is, sewage- polluted; but  for the proper and scientific install  ation a.<* well as-fort he oversight  and management, expert services  give the best results, and where  a municipality will pay for the  services of an expert, the expenditure is more than compensated  for by the; results obtained. These  facts are-cleail/ shown Cy the work  and operation of what is known  ast he; Bubbly Creek Water Purification Plant' of the Union Stock  Yard and Transit company at Chicago, whicH haa been in- operation  for nearly two years.        ' ;  The following information, des  crlp-tive (oi it. is taken fromfthe report ,of C. A. Jennings, chief chemist and superintendent of filtration  First, as to the class of water,  Bubbly creek receives the sewerage of some 350,000 people���������about,  the population of the city of  M-or.itre.al, and a larger population than' tha period of twelve  months show tho maximum to have  boe.n 2,C50.000 bacteria per cubic  centimeter (about 18 drops) while  the minimum was 30,000���������the aver  age being 354,000 per cubic centimeter.  Without .entering into the details  it imay be said that the plant consists of pumps, a canal, now part  oft ha 'sedimentation system, 3  pairs, of settling! basins and mechanical filters. Fromf these latter  thei treatec] water flows the clear-  water well and from thence it is  supplied lc.1 thd stock yards.  Consequent upon the close and  intelligent oversight maintained,  variouys .change'-/have been made  both i'^ Lh-.-j operation of the.fplant  andtihe chemicals used in the treat  men.-*;' of.' the' water. These can be  learned inr detail by reference to  tim'e',  tih/e./coagjulant  used  is-sulphate" ' of  alumina, ��������� a  (solution   of  a .strength of 3.3 per cent, being.  u*?e'd.' 'Subsequently  Jiypjorhloxiibe  solutions of-the" strength" of 1.2 per  per cent, is  added,  after , ."which'  water passes  through  the  filters  and is then ready for use.  As regards (the cost of operafng  this ppa-rtfcular plant, thje contract called for. nothing in excess  of twenty, dollars per million gallons;*! his-, to'include cost of chemicals', labor, and power if or pumping but not depreciation charges  and interest' on investment. The  cost of operation has averaged  only $10.54 (million gallons, and a  itf 1 further reduction in cost of  operation will be .shown; as since  the use <of 'hypochlorite, a total" reduction ofl isom'ef 60 per cent, has  been/.made. in' the use of chemicals  alonie.  Too 'much credit cannot be given  to Mr. C. A. Jennings for fchjs tactical demonstration ;of how water  strongly polluted with "sewage  may be' .converted into a ,potable  water o.f high quality. The reporter states u*t was drunk byThim-  Hdf and ,his (assistants in prefer-  jMicefoo /the city water, and he significantly adds, "There has never  beein a single/ case 0lf sickness or  intestinal disorder caused by do-  rHO.  Undoubtedly, municipalities having water supplies liable to contamination by sewage have much  to learn from this interesting work  and they certainly can have no excuse hereafter for serving put io  the public a sewage-polluted water.
