dent of the columns of the Columbia
State, and Dr. Stanley's doses have
made an imp-tession on him, and he

ing the evidence, sentences you to~pay
sixty dollars or go to the county in- e
stitution for 30 days to take a post r
graduate course in road building." n
The poor unfortunate usually goes to n
