The session of the board of super
visors this afternoon, which was a con
tinuation of the September meeting,
ws. brief indeed. In fact tho board
did little more than meet and adjourn.
The meeting was called to order at
2:o5 by Chairman W. R. Carey and
was adjourned before 3:15.
The subject of county finances was
brought up and an effort was mado to
reconsider the action of the Septem
ber meeting not to allow bills. The
resolution to reconsider, offered by
Supervisor Quade, was, however, ruled
out of order, and no further effort was
made to bring about action on the
bills against the county. The board
has allowed no bills since the spring
Chairman Iees of the financa com
mittee reported that the committee
had taken no action to relieve the
stringency, and that the funds are en
tirely exhausted. He expressed a
doubt as to whether the county can
Issue orders against the anticipated
revenues without encountering much
Would Take Tine.
Supervisor Harris put an. end to the
discussion by pointing out that if the
board allowed the bills this year, as
much time would be required as will
be needed to transact all of the busi
ness at the December meeting, and
that the conditions do not warrant this
extra expense to the county.
Supervisors Doering, Oswald and
others expressed themselves as being
in favor of allowing the bills and issu
ing the orders.
Eckhart Thank Board.
Before taking up any business the
board granted the floor to Coroner L.
V. Eckhart, who will retire from office
Dec. 5. Mr. Eckhart thanked the board
for courtesies extended to him during
the 12 years he has been coroner. He
stated that he had never lobbied for
any measure, and has never found it
necessary to ask for any action of the
board. . He passed the cigars as a to

Carey expressed on behalf of the su

for Coroner Eckhart's service, and his

How to Cure a Cold.
Be as careful as you can you will
occasionally take cold, and when you
do, get a medicine of known reliability,
one that has an established reputation
and that is certain to effect a quick
cure. Such a medicine is Chamber

world wide reputation by its remark
able cures of this most common ail
ment, and can always be depended
upon. It acts on nature's plan, re
lieves the lungs, aids expectoration,
opens the secretions and aids nature in
restoring the system to a healthy con

which It has been in general use we
have yet to learn of a single case of
cold or attack of the grip having re

was used, which shows conclusively
that it is a certain preventive of that
dangerous disease. Chamberlain's
