prevent the Commission from taking over three roads in Wake county is returnable before Judge A Sinclair in the Wake county Superior court at 13 o'clock today Answer to the suit will be filed this morning Charles Ross assistant Attorney General assigned to the State Highway Commission stated The three roads which the county seeks to permanently restrain the State from taking over are the pro posed Durham-Wake Forest highway the proposed route from Raleigh to Creedmoor and the road from Erwin to Cardenas The Wake County Commissioners claim that the Highway Commission is not acting in

commissioners The complaint also charges favoritism to Durham the home of John Sprunt Hill commissioner from this district The Highway Commission is expected to take the position that the 1927 highway

any pain or irregularity or digression from its normal condition of health and happiness A short sharp cry a prolonged irritated cry Restlessness a constant turning of the head or of the whole body fretful In these and other ways a baby tells you there is something wrong Most mothers know that a disordered stomach or bowels that do not act naturally are the cause of most of baby's sufferings A call for the doctor is the first thought but in the event of any delay there should be ready at hand a safe remedy such as Fletcher's Castoria Castoria has been used for baby's ailments for over 30 years and has merited the good will of the family physician in a measure not equaled by any other baby's medicine because of its harmlessness and the good results achieved And remember this: Castoria is essentially a baby's remedy and not a cure-all for every member of the family What might help you is too often dangerous when given to'a babe To avoid imitations always look for the signature of
