The Lake Region Filled In.

Of all the stagnant lakes and swamps which once extended irregularly from Dolores street to Mission Creek, between Seventeenth and Nineteenth streets, only a small patch is left--south of Eighteenth and east of Dolores;--the remainder has all been filled in much to the relief of the nostrils of those who live Missionward. The last of Lake McCoppin is now disappearing from view. A wooden sewer, large enough for a six-footer to promenade through, was lately laid on Eighteenth, with Dolores street toward Mission Creek; it will carry off the surplus water which flows down from the adjacent Mission hills.
