Good Rain Arrives
In Time in the West
(Temple Telegram Special.)
Brownwood, Tex., Apiil 15.—Tht»
rain which fell here Saturday came
at Just the right time, according
to many farmers who were seen
today. The rain a week ago was
sufficient seasoning for the planting
of cottrn and similar crops, and
Saturday's heavy rain will make
these crops grow very rapidly.
Due to the total failure of the
small grain crops in this county,
the acreage of cotton planted this
year will be much greater than ever
before in*the history of the county.
The tiormil production of cotton In
Brown county is 6,500 bales, but if
the crop produces this year as it
should at least double that amount
will be garnered.

Wounded Civil War "Veteran
Strongly Endorses Nujol
After suffering many years from chronic constipation, W. H.
Collingwood found Nujol so effective that he was able to
greatly reduce the dose a week after starting die treatment.
Read his letter:—
NUJOL LABOR ATORI ES
STANDARD OIL CO. (New J„«y),
BAYONNE, N. J.
Am 7i years of age, and for many years luve
been ifflicted with constipation, which has been aggravated
by neuritis caused by a severe wound received during the
Civil War, in which I served three years. Have used Nujol
for some time past with most satisfactory results. Am now
practically free from constipation. After using Nujgl for
about one week was able to reduce dose one-half.
Would add : was troubled with heart-burn almost
daily, but Nujol has entirely relieved me.
It is with pleasure I write you as above.

/CONSTIPATION sufferers read between the lines of Mr.
Collingwood's letter! Note that many more than one
serious ailment begins with constipation—and all are avoided
by prompt relief from constipation. The necessary relief is best
supplied by Nujol —in all cases, chronic or occasional.
Nujol clears the bowel-tract in gentle, effective fashion, without
stimulating the system; without griping; and without the least
reaction. Nujol is a pure, reliable, non-habit-forming remedy.
It is pleasant to take. Thousands now use it instead of harm-
ful pills and physics. Be "regular as clockwork"—use Nujol.
There are no substitutes
—there is only Nujol.
