About two o'clock yesterday af teiy
noon a heavy clap of thunder preced

followed by a heavy rain caused some
excitement, but only late in the even

woodchopper near Bard had been kill

This one was a Mexican Cholo who
with a companion was engaged in
clearing land in a field half way be

council in investigating infantile paral-

of the failure of a quorum of both
committees to be present.
The big political gathering at the
Shrine auditorium drew many who
otherwise would have been present,

THE SUGAR TRUST
E A BIG PROFIT
The Sugar Trust has made a profit
of $13,000,000 in twenty-one years on
an investment of $500,000. The trust
ought to be duly grateful to Uncle
Sam for the proportion he permitted
it to accumulate at the custom houses
by its private scales.

COST OF BABY'S

CHICAGO, Aug. 27 "How much
does it cost to keep a baby around
When this question was flashed on
Chicago today the answer was a gasp,
a throwing up of the hands and a weak
rejoinder of "Well, now, you know,
I never thought of that before." Chi

bureau in the county building conduc

track of them. In every, home where
there is a baby it is conceded to be
the most important personage in the
place. It is the penultimate consumer.

much does the baby consume?'' was
