A Water-Works Superintendent’s Woes.
Our pictorial presentation of some of the many and varied experiences in the daily life of a water-works superintendent will strike a responsive chord in the hearts of many of our readers. Which of them who has ever held the position has not had his tribulations with the fire department, the taxpayers or the board; has not racked his brain for a remedy for roily water, or worried over the coal bill? How many of them have not at some time or other been called from a comfortable bed to look after some burst main, or had to listen meekly or otherwise to the complaints of the firemen and underwriters about frozen hydrants? Very few, we fancy, but will recognize the truth to nature of our artist’s work.
