subject of handling the surplus storm
water was discussed at length and a

urijed that a general storm water clis
trlfct be created through which a main
' open sewer be dug to be connected by
branch ■ ditches located where most
suitable to drain off the water. To
carry out this plan it was decided that
a committee of five be appointed to In
quire Into the feasibility of the sug
gestion and to make the necessary ar
rangements, If found to be practicable.
This committee Is to consist of two
members of the Pasadena city council,
two members of the county board and
the fifth member to be selected by the
four. Mayor Waterhouso was chair
man of the meeting, j The selection of
the ■ committee will be made by the
council and the supervisors.

Like many other dangerous maladies,
diarrhoea often comes on unexpectedly
and scarcely before the patient is
aware of it a serious disorder has de
veloped. During the warm weather, at
tacks of this kind are very frequent
and are often so swift in their results
that life is in danger before a physician
can be summoned. Every man who has
the Interests of his family at heart,
should keep a reliable remedy in his
home for immediate use in cases of this
kind. Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy is, without doubt,
the best medicine prepared for diar
rhoea. It should be given, if possible,
at the first unusual looseness of the
bowels and the attack may be avoided.
Advanced stages, however, are success
fully treated, and even In the most
severe and dangerous cases, it has
never been knowli to fall. For sale by
