Mahlte uf Hire Fred for Ollie.
Ollie Branyon, a handsome South
Carolina boy. who formerly lived here,
came down on a visit last week and
when bc left for Kern county, Sunday,
bjis young friends here gathered at the
station and dumped a whole grocery
store full of rice on his trail. Ollie
wasn't married then and he Isn't mar
ried now. but his friends made the
whole train load of folks believe that
he was on his wedding trip. Ollie's
trunks were decorated with old shoes
and other relics and he even wore thc
customary nervousness of the regula
tion groom, and he spent two days in
combining South Carolina rice out of
his hair. The passengers all smiled
and nodded and expressed curiosity,
and it was a great relief for Ollie to
break away and escape to the oil fields
near Bakersfield. Next time he comes
to Banning he will either not come at
all or really become a loving husband
and let the crowd fire rice until the
walls of the city totter and fall,.

Yours very truly,
You all know these men and what they say is true.
We do not claim R. L. T. to be a "cure all" but as a LIVER TONIC, v/e'do not believe it has an equal, lt is a well-known fact that most of the diseases common to man
are due to the inactivity of the liver. This is especially true of CONSTIPATION, INDIGESTION, BILIOUSNESS, HEADACHES, ETC. There is no better remedy known to
