M'. which arrive! before o'clock. A cyclone also wiped out more ihan a ha'f dozen buildings in Mt.Muilin. a. few miles this side of Sikeston at ? o'clock yestrrday afternoon, and Yau duser also sui!"o?-ed. t'rptain Bridges was stepping at ih-" Marshall hotel, a half mile from the path that the tornado folh-wrd in mak ing a sweep through the to wn. The cyclone struck with most of its fury in the vicinity of the Frisco rail road station, and demolished m:;r,y houses and small barns through the city.

ROY TAYLOR GOES TO VISIT HIS SWEETHEART: MARRIES Goes to Fredericktown for a Short Visit With Miss Mille Hill and Returns a Married Man. When Roy Taylor, a son of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Taylor, of Jackson, went to Fredericktown, his friends did not think it out of the ordinary, as it was his custom to make week-end trips to that city to call on his sweetheart, Miss Millie Hill. But on this occasion he had serious thoughts upon his mind which terminated in his unexpected marriage last Saturday. He induced Miss Hill to see things his way and when he returned to Jackson made known to his relatives and friends that he had taken unto himself a bride. Mr. Taylor attended Marvin College at Fredericktown when a young man and later worked there for a few . . t t ' il. year?. At present ne is working wun his father in Osceola, Ark., in erecting. a church building. His father is a well known contractor. On his return to work in -Arkansas yesterday, young Taylor left his young bride at the home of her parents in Fredericktown.

The last word in civic rfdeionry by a city employe was pulled off in Ilaa r'g Friday afternoon. A feature of the efficiency that was developed is the artier--, unostenta tious hone?;-y with which a duty was performed. Haarig had worried along all Friday mori-ing in the heat and dust. -Men were going about with tongues nearly hanging out, mopping oi" the salt wat. r at r-gub.v intervals, and cussing on general principle?. Shortly after dinner, however, after the street had been baked by tho sun. i. ."P. stood ah; at in the doorway? and watched the 'neat si;:;:ling up in heat waves fv:- the center of the st.' f l. A rain ch-ad a;neaivd, and ..:: an army e.f clo-ids drifted over the h- ri sen.

Then proudly down the enter of the stec t drove Andy Braun in the mhh-t of the- rahi v. ith his water wagon, spraying for el ear life.

BABY DFRiNG TI1F SIM MLR Food Formula Should B Followed Carefully. Preventive Med cine F ':! r i Advises Mothers.

II is better i'" to wean a babv in the middle ef tr.e sum mer, l! nursed nossilil babies sh I) whollv during the FV.imv.e months, but at any rate in part, i.ie weaning should take two o- three weeks. The change s hould r.ot l' made stahhrnly. Begin by gMmr a bottle feeding every third or fourth day and increase until all the feedings are from the bottle. It i? best to start weaning through the tenth iv mlb. and exert for spe cial reason.; no chiid should bo mined longer than erne yea". The food formula for a weaivng child, OsDcrinliy if it has had no bottle feeding previously, sdvra'd be the one used for a .somewhat younger child, according to Dr. M. P. Ravenel of the department of Preventive Medicine at the University of Mis?mri, Columbia. For examp'e: Cream. ! ounces: miik (skimmed), 27 ounces; bored water. 12 ounces, and milk sugar 42 vei tablesroonfuls. If the child has had seme bait'" feeding previously, whole milk may h substituted, and a formula of some thing like the following ir-'ed: Whole milk, "Ct ounces; boiled water. 12 ounces, and sugar of milk, 4:- table spoonfuls. The strength of this mixture may be gradually increased by substituting whole milk for the boiled water at t! rate of two ounces each month, until the child is about thirteen months o'd. when the water may be omitted from the formula at the rate of one ounce per week. The milk sugar may also be omitted from the formula by de grees at the rate of a tablespoon ful a month. One of the best indications that the food is not suitable is he fail ure on the part of the bay to gain in weight. Lime water is also used in milk formulae. It may generally be used to advantage when the baby shows n tendency to spit up the food, or if its movements are too frerjuent and green in color. It is usually added in the proportion of one-fifth of the cream and skimmed milk. The lime water should replace an equal amount of boiled water, the milk remaining the same. Dr. and Mrs. R. P. Dalton yesterday returned from St. Louis, where Mrs. Dalton has been a patient for several weeks in a hospital.
