TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—l see that the deputation that waited upon the mayor re reservoir requested him to have it cleaned out. That it is much needed anyone who is unfortunately compelled to drink it can state.

Truly we are a long-suffering race. I only hope some of our doctors will take up this subject, and tell us if they think such stuff is at all conducive to health. We have, I think, quite enough mud in our streets without being compelled to take an extra supply in our drinking water. —I am, etc., Pure Water, Dunedin, July 2.
