BINDER TWINE AND REPAIRS
We have just received our first shipment of Deering Binder Twine in 5 lb. balls. We are
promised another shipment later on in the season, but can’t tell just when this shipment
will arrive, so you had better place your order NOW while we have it on hand.
Let us have your order for Deering and McCormick repairs as soon as possible as freight
shipments are slow and express shipments are uncertain. Remember that we have the only
genuine Deering and McCormick repairs sold in Lampasas. Beware of all “made for” and
“will fit” imitation repairs as they do not fit properly and will damage your machine.
In order for us to have riding planters for you, we had some shipped to Waco by interur-
ban and sent our delivery car to Waco for them. If you want one phone us.
Our Cultivator stock is very low. Come or phone us at once if you want a cultivator.
We have Machine Oil, Cup Grease, Hand Separator Oil, Harness Oil, Axle Oil, Gun Oil, 3-in-1 Oil

A telephone message from Temple
states that a thorough examination
had been made on Miss Katherine At-
kins, of Llano, who fell out of the
courthouse window, a distance of thir-
ty feet, and found no bones broken.
Her back was bruised, but there was
no dislocation of any of the bones,
and it is thought she will be all right
in a few days, after she has had time
to recover from the shock of the fall.
Dizziness, vertigo, (blind staggers)
sallow complexion, flatulence are

FELL FROM SECOND STORY
Saturday afternoon Miss Katherine
Atkins, of Llano, passed through
Lampasas en route to Temple, where
she went to receive medical attention.
While attending the district court in
Llano, she fell from the second story
of the courthouse, a distance of about
thirty feet, and dislocated her spine,
and received other internal injuries
from the fall. The ground being wet
saved her from more serious injuries,
and perhaps death. It is stated the
accident happened so quickly, it was
difficult to ascertain just how the ac-
cident happened. A large crowd was
in attendance upon the court in the
Callan case, and Miss Atkins was sit-
ting in the window, but just how she
came to fall out could not be learned.
She was taken to Temple on a
stretcher Saturday and was in a seri-
A spring fight occurred Tuesday
afternoon on the public square, and
but for the intervention of friends,
serious results might have occurred.
As it was, the coffers of the courts
will be replenished—and the world
will go wagging on.
The rainfall Saturday afternoon
which began about 3 o’clock and came
down in a torrent for about an hour,
amounted to 1.30 hundredths of an
inch. The creek got on a boom and all
the branches got out of their banks,
and it is reported the water washed
away about thirty feet of Mrs. Camp-
bell-Scott’s rock fence around her
premises. There is an excellent sea-
son in the ground now and the crop
prospects are good. The truck gar-
dens will flourish, and everything
will grow now.
Mrs. N. S. Pickett of Lometa spent
the day here Tuesday attending to
Born, Monday, May 17, to Mr. and

Sallow complexion is due to a tor-

strengthens the liver and bowels and

the cheeks. Sold by all druggists.—•
BOOZE WALKS AWAY
........ LEAVING NO TRACE.
Chicago, May 15.—The “evidence”
worth $600,000 upon which Govern-
ment agents had built their hopes of
numerous convictions in Illinois liquor
operations, has mysteriously disap-
peared. The confiscated booze, stocks
secured in raids between July 1 and
January 16, were stored in the Sibley
warehouse and have gone away from
there and left no trace.
This is a bonded warehouse and
supposed to be surrounded by all the
safeguards the Government thought
necessary. It had been noticed that
when a case came to trial the particu-
lar liquor seized in that case was
missing. Now the entire stock is gone
and with the hands of Major Dalrym-
ple and his assistants firmly tied by
orders from Washington, there is slim
chance to secure any new evidence.
A force of auditors went to the ware-
house today to check up to confiscated
stocks, but there was nothing to check
Smuggling away of this immense
quantity of liquor could not have been
accomplished without some inside
help and an ominous shadow of sus-
picion is falling upon former high In-
ternal Revenue officials. Auditors
find the records incomplete, no re-
ceipts for liquor withdrawn and loose
methods generally in the conduct of
officials who were being paid by the
Government to guard the liquor.
Disappearance of the evidence
means the Government’s suits against
several associations for violation of
the Prohibition Act will fail flat.
These suits. would have hit some
very prominent wholesalers and big
cafe proprietors and the cases against
them were practically perfect until
the Government lost the evidence.
CALLES SUMMONS VILLA.
El Paso, Tex., May 18.—Gen. P.
Calles, Provisional Minister of War of
Mexico, has summoned Francisco Vil-
la to appear at Chihuahua City to ex-
plain his reported action in holding
an American official of the Alvarado
Mining Company for ransom at Bo-
quillas, west of Santa Rosilia, Chihua-
hua.# That was announced by Gen.
Calles tonight on his departure on a
special train to Chihuahua City.
Barbed wire cuts, ragged wounds,
collar and harness galls heal up quick-
ly when BALLARD'S SNOW LINI-
MENT is applied. It is both healing
and antiseptic. Sold by all druggists.
