COLONISTS COMING Rush to Southern California In creases as Season Draws to Close Travel to Southern California from the middle west and the east is increasing as the colonist season draws to a close. All sec tions of the state report more ar rivals than in any previous year but the most notable inrush of settlers is to Imperial Valley.

The travel coastward is bring ing thirteen trains to Los Angel es daily, and with the exception of two limited flyers the colonists are pouring into the city.

At the opening of the season the average was more than 1,400 passengers a day. At present it is 2,200 every twenty-four hours at...

Why Colds are Dangerous Because you have contracted ordwiary colds and recovered from them without treatment of any kind, do not fo^ a moment imagine that colds are not difcn gerous. Everyone knows that pneu monia and chronic chtarrh have their origin in a common cold. Consumption is not caused by a cold but the col»!i prepares the system for the reception and cevelopment of the germs that would not otherwise have found lodg ment. It is the same with all infecti ous diseases. Diphtheria, scarlet fever, measles and whooping cough are much more likely to be contracted when the child has a cold. You will see from this that more real danger lurks in a cold than in any other of the common ailments. The easiest and quickest way to cure a cold is to take Chamber lain's Cough Remedy. The many re markable cures effected by this prepa ration have made it a staple article of trade over a large part of the world. For sale by El Centro Drug Store. R. L. Greer Architcd and Builder.
