two-year old cattle.
Vacation was a problem witn Mr.
Roddy as with all fathers.; much more
of a prolem than it was with the boys.
What would he done with the boys
after school was puzzling Mr. lbwldy.
He wantel to keep the boyH employed

looking for boys. The purchase of the
calves was a solution. They skirmish
ed through the country and found two
of t he same ge that matched. For
one, five dollars was paid and for the
other si z dollars. "The boys will kill
the calves," declared Home of Mr.
Roddy's frieuds, as they ridiculed his
venture. Rut the boys did nothing of
the kind. They noon had the animals
well trained to harness, working finely.
Feeding and caring for them was
sufficient employment to keep the
youngsters out of mischief.
.The (Jentralia Fair Association gave
the cart, its owners and drivers free
admission provided they would drive
around the show ring. The famous
cattle herds of central Missouri did not
attrac t more attention. The second
day of the Fair a wealthy farmer
offered one hundered for the team of
calves for his boy, but the Centralia
youths, though 'sorely tempted, refused
The young men will raise them, get
an old-time outfit and drive to St.
Louis and through the city to the Ex
loflition. They hoje to Hell the team
there for enough money to pay their
expenses at the Exitosition. Stephen
Roddy' is thirteen years of age; his
brother Forrest, ten years.
The boys are now in t-chool, much

SOMETHING THAT IS (iOOD.
We know of no greater service that
this newspaper can render its many
readers than to h-t th-m know of a
r. ally meritorious article and where
the same may fie procured. Fo- ttiis
reason we wish to have every reader
peruse the following from Dexter
Mahoney, (uigley, III. II" says:
"lMease K'-nd me hv express two dozen
of Re-(o. I find it an excellent med
icine and have to keep it in stock. "
Re-do Tonic Laxative Syrup is au
unfailing cure, for constipation, sick
headache, biliousness sour stomache
and dyspepsia. It is the ideal med
icine for children. f() cent Uttties

A SLEEP AMID FLAMES,
breaking into a blazing home, some
firemen lately dragged the. sleeping
inmate from death. Fancied security,
and death near. It's that way wneu
you neglect coughs and colds. Don't
do it. Dr. King' New Discovery for
Consumption give prefect protection
against all Throat, Chest and Lung
Troubles. Keep it near, and avoid
suffering, dentin and doctor's bills. A
tea spoonful stops a late con ph. per
sistent use the most stuhlxirn. Harm
less and nice tasting, it's guaranteed
to satisfy bv J. C. Wilkinson.
A STARTLING SURPRISE.
Very few could believe in looking at
A. T. Hoadley, a healthy, robust
blacksmith of Tilden, Ind., that for ten
years he suffered such tortures from
Rheumatism as few could endure and
live. Rut a wonderful change followed
his taking Electric Hitters. "Two
bottles wholly cured me," he writes,
and I have not felt a twinge in over a
year." They regualte the Kidneys,
purify the blood and cure Rheumatism
Neuralgia, Nervousness, Improve
digestion and give perfect health. Try
them. On'y .-( cents at .T. C. Wilkinson.
