THE WATER QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ABERYSTWYTH OBSERVER. The old adage of t( O many cooks spoil the broth," or the other of "in the multitude of councillors there is wisdom," applies to our watery wants. We have hereabouts, as follows, four or five springs and brooks on Tanycastell; two or three on Bryneibyn; three or four on Cwmedwig—enough to deluge Ab. erystwyth and suburbs, as Trefechan, &c. I will not trouble you with, much as I have pointed out the best way of inducing fine clear spring water cose at home. And if the foregoing is not enough, there is Aberllolwyn and Abermaid rocky rivers. I beg to enquire why the mine proprietors are so quiet, when they have been the sole cause of spoiling the Ystwyth, Rheidol, Melindwr, and other streams ? In fact, the mines have been to blame for it all, and ought to bear the entire expense of pipes and every- thing else. Also, what are the Puritans, alias Tee- totallers, about in this water bubble and trouble ? Having lived in this locale 50 years off and on, I can assert that the waters of Tanycastell, Bryneithy*, and Cwmedwig are not only suited for drinking, but are equally good for washing and every other pur- pose I know of; and, being all rapid streams, must be far superior to any lake waters now thought cf and near-" look at home." Yours, &c. W. E. B.
