Services Held Yesterday For Mrs. Anna Allen Morrow at Family Home LUXORA, Jan. 20. ~ Funeral services for Mrs. Anna Allen Morrow, wife of the late J. F. Morrow, who died early Sunday mom- ing after an illness of,many years, were conducted Sunday afternoon at two-thirty o'clock from the family residence with the Rev. Ralph L. Douglas, pastor, of the Baptist church, officiating. ;She was 80 years of age. Burial was made in the old Luxora family cemetery. Mrs. Morrow was bom near Carrollton, Miss., and after the death of her father, moved with her mother to Wesson, Miss., where she lived until she was married- to J. P. Morrow. Coming to Luxora as a bride, she had lived here for the past 48 years. The death of Mrs. Morrow marks the passing of the only remaining charter member of the Luxora Baptist church in which she was always interested and took an active part until forced by ill health eight years ago to be a shut-in. She was also a charter member of the first Missionary society of the Luxira Baptist church BEWARE NOW OF EPIDEMIC COLDS! Here's Some Good Time-Tested Advice With folks all around suffering with contagious colds, be just as careful as you can—and you may avoid a lot of sickness, trouble and worry. Follow these simple rules of health: Live normally. Avoid excesses. Eat simple food. Drink plenty of water. Keep elimination regular. Beware of wet feet and drafts. Take some exercise daily—preferably outdoors. Get plenty of rest and sleep. Then use these two time-tested treatments when needed. AT THE FIRST SIGN OF ft SNIFFLE, SNEEZE OR NASAL IRRITATION...put a few drops of Vicks Va-tro-nol up each nostril right awav. This helps to prevent many colds from developing, because Va-tro-nol is expressly designed to help Nature's own defenses against colds. (If a head cold causes stuffiness, you'll find that a few drops of Va-tro-nol helps clear the clogging mucus and makes breathing freer and easier.) 'IF A CHEST COLO OR CaUINIHG COLO DEVELOPS (some colds get by all precautions) depend on Vicks VapoRub to relieve miseries. Rub VapoRubon throat, chest and back and cover with a warmed cloth. VapoRub acts to bring relief 2 ways at once. It stimulates surface of chest and back like a warming poultice. At the same time it releases helpful medicinal vapors that are breathed direct into the irritated air passages. Both Va-tro-nol and VapoRub have been tested through years of use in millions of homes. When you use these two medicines you are not experimenting, you are not taking needless chances. Remember: If the condition of the cold fails to respond quickly to treatment—or if more serious trouble is indicated—call your family physician right away. In the meantime be prepared I Get a bottle of Vicks Va-tro-nol and a jar of Vicks VapoRub today. a Friday Contract club at Colomai marriage, Miss Martha Elise Moore, the bingo party to be given Thurs- Roorn of Hot-el Noble. 1 daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D.
