of making away with a large amount
ftf the Delta's capital, without really
accomplishing very much.
Now. thore are patches of work
which remain to show the Council
the kind that will stand the wear and
tear of the rough water, and il
ieems to us that the only sane method -to pursue would be to raise a sufficient sum of money to place this
dyke in a thorough state of repair
tfre ;uiy more damage is done.
Pdr this, or any other Council, to
sit idly by and aiiow this dyke to be

Jhat ijie work will cost mor : than it
This Delta land would not be worth

as high as $250 per acre, yet. you

U.S. soldiers  who  served  in Cuba
during  the  Spanish   war  know  what
this   disease   is,   and   that   ordinary j
remedies have little more effect than !
sn  much  waler.    Cuban diarrhoea is
almost as severe anl dtugerous as j "VVellingtOIl Coal,
a mild attack of cholera. There is
one remedy, hnw':ver, that can always he depended upon as .will be
seen by the following certiiieate
from Mrs. Minnie Jacobs 01* Houston
Texas: "I hereby certify thai Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera arid Diarrhoea Remedy cured my husband of
a severe attack of Cuban diarrhoea,
which he brought horn; from Cuba.
We bad several doctors but they
did him no good. One bottle of this
remedy cured him, as our neighbours
will testify. I thank God for so valuable a medicine.'' For sale by T. J.
