MEN LAID OFF
Nearly 300 Men at Lagona Are Laid
OfF
Last Salurday^nlght the governmejit
1 laid off nea-ly SOO^men at the woriTs
at Laguna dam. All the men on the
•California side were laid off, but 125
were retained on the Ar'zsna side of
the river.
The reason for this decrease In the
force at the government dam Is the
shortage of appropriation for the La
guna project. It appears that the
putting In ot this dam Is costing more
than what was at first estimated, and
*the force has been cut down to cor
respond with the present available
funds.
Governing these funds for the gov
ernment projects there Is a distributing
(board, and this board Is expected to
meet, the latter part of this month or
the first ,of September, and will appor
tion funds to increase the force again
at Laguna. It Is practically impera
give that work be not slackened on
this dam for long, as there is some
very Important work to be done before
'the high water of next year, and for
(his reason It Is believed the distribu
ting board will borrow from some other
government project which has a sur
plus, until congress met In December
■and allows for this deficiency.
Up to the time of. the lay off work
was progressing fine, and. there Is no
'fear expressed but what everything
will continue to progress at the dam
.site. ' >
For a Bigger Store
Roy L. Rumsey. proprietor of the
(El Centro Department Store, left last
week El Cajon, where he visited a few
-days with his family. The first of
■^h'ls week he left there for the east
-where he will buy a large consign
ment of goods for his store here. It
is his intention to stock up completely
Jn every line, and will add an extensive
• clothing department. By buying In
"the eas direct from the manufacturers
,he feels that he can get a better as
sortment and sell his goods at a much
lower price.
Mr. Rumsey will move his family
* back to the valley again as soon as he
from the East.

' A Faithful Friend
' "I have used Chamberlain's Colici
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy since it
was first introduced to the public, in
1872, and have never found one instance
where a cure was not speedily effected
by its use. I have been a commercial
traveler for eighteen years, and never
start out on a trip without this, my
faithful friend," says H. S. Nichols of
Oakland, Ind. Ter. When a man has
used a remedy for thirty-five years lie
knows its value and .is competent to
speak of it. For sale by El Centro
Drug Store.
