ILL HEALTH COMPELS
CADOU TO TAKE VACATION
Felix L Cadou, manager of the Lib
eral Light, Ice and Power Company,
will leave in the next few days for
Cuchura Camps, Colorado, where he
wil spend a month upon order of his
physician.
Mr. Cadou has been handling the
Liberal and Dalhart plants for the
Comomnwealth Light and Power Com
pany of New York City, and the strain
of putting both plants In first class
condition has been too much for him.
In his weakened condition an attack
of stomach trouble caused the order
from his physician to take at least
thirty days vacation.
Mr. Cadou was just moving to Lib-
ereal and all will regret to hear that
he is forced to leave for so long a
time, and hope he returns sound In
health.

cers came to the scene the back door

RAIN NEEDED BADLY
A visit to the country and a sur
vey of the acres and acres of kafir and
maize will convince one that this
part of the country is needing rain
verv badlv and unless we get one
soon there will be a very short crop
this falL We have not had a good
general rain since long before har
vest, although we have had a few
light local showers in almost every
community. However these light
rains do not go very far toward ma
turing crops. The kafir and maize
yield will be greatly cut down by the
drouth if we should get an ideal sea
son until falL
Pastures are needing rain now
worse than they have for several
years, and it is almost impossible to
prepare ground for sowing wheat,
which means that the winter wheat
pastures will be late.
A good general rain would help
this country more than anything tight
now and we are all waiting, not too
patiently, for it
