Mention was made a few day* ago ot the demand for buttermilk In this dry town It Is dally becoming more acute ·nd If the rush gets any greater, the buttermilk question will be on of considerable Importance CROWD WAITS. At 4 o'clock Fr'day afternoon twenty-one people with cans, jars, pa.Ua, ' cups and bottles, were crowded to- I gether in the salesroom of the Benson creamery, the main source of buttermilk supply In Decatur The buttermilk supply had given out at 10 o'clock In the morning and these people had come around a,, the time when the first churning was ready A dozen or more palls had been left to be filled when the buttermilk was ready. Small children, middle aged, and old folks were In the crowd They were all kinds of people. Including some who had come In automobiles One gallon Jar was filled for a fireman who was going over to the West Main street house. 550 GALLONS DAILY. Five hundred gallons of buttermilk a day are being made at this place. Fifty gallons a day are being made by the Decatur Ice Cream company. Both of them could sell a great deal more Hot days like these they could probably sell twice as much as they now do If they had the buttermilk One Instance of the demand Is one milk dealer In the northeast part of the c i t v , who asked for thirty-five gallons of buttermilk for Saturday morning and got about ten Buttermilk from milk depots like that Is sold by the gallon, quart and Klass to people In the neighborhood, who, as the dav gets warm, come in to get this refreshing drink to take to their homes 1 CREAM SHORT One cause of the buttermilk shortage is the growing scarcity of cream Of course, the main cause Is the big demand due to the hot weather, but if cream could be had both makers would turn out a good deal more butter, and of course, more buttermilk. The dry weather and the burning up of the pastures Is the cause of the cream shortage Decatur b u j e r s are dailv going farther for cream They are now getting It from the other side of Vandalla, from Amboy, and even from beyond Elgin No Disease Without A Cause The cause ot both acute and cnroole dlneaies removed by CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS No matSer what or wheis tne aliment Is omo snd t m e r t i g a t « tne method ot r«inovinR th» cause Investigation costs ·nthlng and examination Is free and In- YltSd.

DECATUE FIREMEN MAKE INTERESTING SCENE. Department at Smallwood Flats. --Photo by H Peyer Decatur firemen in action make an Interesting scene, no matter whether the fire loss Is large or small.

Summer Cooking Shouldn't Cook The Cook Getting dinner ready in July is just as comfortable as in November--if you use a Scovill coal oil cook stove. The Scovill stove automatically turns coal oil into gas, furnishes a steady, intense gas flame against the cooking vessels, where the heat is absorbed by the articles being cooked, The gas flame burning against the cooking vessels makes the Scovill coal oil stove twice as fast with half the oil of the ordinary coal oil stove, Coal oil costs half the price of gasoline and is perfectly safe. Come and see these new Scovill coal oil stoves demonstrated. Prices no higher than inferior stoves. SCOVILL H IR cf c H 121-125 N. Water St. Everything Ready to Wear.
