The personal injury case of Mrs. Anna Johnson versus the Village of Makanda, went to trial in the circuit court at Murphysboro Monday evening of this week. About a dozen witnesses on each side. The suit grows out of alleged injuries received by the plaintiff by falling through a hole in. the side walk about a year and a half ago. The attorneys in the case are I. K. Levy for the plaintiff and Otis.Glenn for the defendant. The jury brought in a verdict of $1250 against the village. There is an -old legend or 'bit of folk lore to the effect that heavy sleet in the winter foretells the abundance of fruit of wood and vine the coming season. In another, that the fruit trees bend under the _iurden of sleet in -iyinter, so will they" bend under the j burden of fruit the coming year. The fulfillment of the prophecy contained in either of these legends will'do. So far the flu epidemic has not struck Makanda. Will Baggott of the I. C. R.

Subject, Resolved, That tobacco is a necessity. • Luck and Lack Don't trust to luck: Luck is untrustworthy. Systematic, scientific striving for any goal is far. more likely to bring you. success than any mere faith in your success. Just as changing a single letter changes "Luck" to "Lack," so will the reverse* of a single day change plenty to want. But you can insure yourself against ' this by building your success on the habit of saving. Save and Win Be well dressed. Make friends. Increase your in. fluence in your community. Enjoy the respect of all your associates. .., These things do not come to those who trust to luck for them. Systematic saving will win them for you. Systematic saving will accumulate for you a small'fortune that can safely and readily be expanded to a large one. Decide on a regular deposit and start depositing NOW. «<g 51% ^ ANTIOCH.
