Bridges at the upper end o f town were carried away, sidewalks and fences swept down the streets, and many houses filled with tw o or three feet o f water, the receding flood leav ing behind a trail o f mud and de bris. Several houses were partially wrecked. In a few instances people living in the path o f the water had to be car ried to places o f safety, but the greater part o f the population, rem em bering the experience o f a few years ago, fled to the hills as soon as the storm assumed dangerous prop or tions. The electric pow er station was quickly put out o f business, and the city was in darkness last night. No lives were lost, and it is not be lieved that damage to crops will be serious. For several days the weather has been excessively warm, with an un usual amount of humidity in the at mosphere. Atm ospheric conditions were very similar to those which pre ceded the great flood of 1903, and yes terday afternoon when dark clouds began to gather to the south o f town, preparations were made by many to seek safety in the hills.

If this should be done, the effect would probably be to continue for possibly- as long as tw o years the uncertainty prevailing previous to the decision. Robert B. Allen, associate editor of the Pacific Lumber Trade Journal, said yesterday that he had been in form ed on reliable authority that the railroads had practically decided either to take a straight appeal to the federal courts or to enjoin the de cision of the com m ission. The for mer course would leave the rates es tablished by the com m ission in force pending the decision o f the appeal, which the lumbermen state would not seriously embarrass them in going ahead in securing business and resum ing the industry. An injunction, on the other hand, would probably result in a continu ance of the business on a bond basis, which would force the lumbermen to make all shipments under bond to pay the higher rate should the courts finally overthrow the decision of the interstate com m erce com mission.

In any quantity they stupefy, retard circulation and lead to congestions, sickness, death. Castoria operates exactly the reverse, but you must see that it bears the signature of Chas. H. Fletcher.
