DEATH OF MR. JOHN L. HARRINGTON

DEATH OF MR. JOHN L. HARRINGTON

The approaching convention of the New England Water Works Association at Burlington, Vt., will be overshadowed by a cloud. Its members will miss from their ranks the well-known figure of John L. Harrington, who died at Cambridge, Mass., on August 16, of blood poisoning. Mr. Harrington was a resident of Cambridge, where he had been first, a foreman in the the water works—a position he held for many years, and then, for nearly twelve months past, their superintendent, to which office he succeeded on the death of the late Hiram Nevons. Apart from personal considerations, Mr. Harrington will be greatly missed at the convention, where his practical common sense, thorough knowledge of detail, and familiarity with everything connected with water works made him invaluable both as a committeeman and on the floor of the house. _
