Mutually Singular measures

Please help me on this:

c.f. Rudin's Real and Complex Analysis (Third Edition 1987) Chapter 6 Q9

Suppose that is a sequence of positive continuous functions on , is a positive Borel measure on , is the standard Lebesgue measure, and

(i) ;
(ii) for all ;
(iii) for all

Does it follow that the measures and are mutually singular?

I kind of guess that it is a no and have been trying hard to come up with a counterexample. Some of my thoughts:
1 . If is singular relative to , then it has to be concentrated on a set which does not contain any open interval.
2. A typical sequence that satifies both (i) and (ii) above is the familiar "triangular sequence", i.e. the sequence of functions whose graphs are triangles with increasing heights, each having area 1. But I don't know how to deal with (iii).
