THORNTON, Oct. 4 (Sp.).®
Thornton had one ft the hardest
rains in the history of the town
Saturday night, precipitation meas-
uring 8(86 inches. The rain started
at 7:30 gradually becoming heavi-
er until from 11:30 to 1 o'clock
there was a virtual cloudburst.
hTe rain was accompanied by a
hi[;h wind and violent electrical
storm. Lightning striking the
home of G. A. Clancy, damaging
it to the extent of ?200, tearing a
hole in the roof and burning out
all the e.'ectric light wiring. Other
homes in town were without lights
and radios as a result of the light"
Child Gets Sick, Cross, Feverish
Mother! Your child isn't natur-
ally cross and peevish. See if
tongue is coated; this is a sure
sign the little stomach, liver and
bov/els need a cleansing ab once.
When listless, pale, feverish, full
of cold, breath bad, throat sorts,
doean't eat, sleep or act naturally,
lias stomach ache, diarrhea, re-
member, a gentle liver and bowei
cleansing should always be the
first treatment given.
Nothing equals ' California Fig
Syrup" for children's ills; give a
teaApoonful, and in a few hours all
the foul waste, sour bile and fer-
menting food which is clogged in
the bowels passes out of the sys-
tem, and vou have a well and
playful child again. All children
love this harmless, delicious,
"fruity laxative," and it never
fails to effect a good "inside
e'eansing." Directions for babies,
children of all ages and grown-ups
are plainly on the bottle.
Keep it handy in your home. A
little given today saves a sick
child tomorrow, but £;st the genu-
ine. Ask your dru^«?ist for a
bottle of "California Fig Syrup,"
then see that it is math by "The
California Fig Syrup Company."
For Friday and Saturday
"Prarie Hill farmers are in the
best condition they have been in
years, not so much because of the
price of cotton, but because they
have hogs and chickens and feed
stuffs," accordnig to W. P. Alex-
ander, banker of Prairie Hill and
one of the leading citizens of that
"There are 20 .fci'g? to every one
there was two years ago,", said
Mr. Alexander, 'and there are
from 200 to 300 hens on every
farm. They hava plenty of meut
for their own use and to sell, and
farmers are gecting some money
from the sale of eggs and chick-
ens. That's the best indication of
prosperity. Of course they could
not have the hoga and chickens if
they did not have the feed stuffs
It looks like farnieis are getting
away from the one crop idea and
back to the 'bid tarm life where
overything was raided on the farm

led and farmers arc pot through
