From the McLeansboro (Ill.) Times
McLeansboro is now experiencing a water famine.  The city water supply was shut off Monday on account of the wells at the Fairgrounds failing to furnish water; with all night's prompting they will not furnish more than sixteen hundred gallons.  We now have $28,000 tied up in a waterworks system that is practically useless.  The city council should at once take steps to bore more wells or make some provisions whereby they can furnish water to the city.
