Saved Her Daughter's Life.
"Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy saved my daugh
ter's life when she had cholera mor
bus at the age of 14 months. She
vomited every few minutes and we
were unable to keep any medicine
down long enough to benefit her un
til we gave her this remedy. The
doctor being at our house I asked him
what he thought about our using it,
and he said as he was unable to do
the child any good, I had better use
it. The second dose she kept down
and in a short time the bowels were
checked and she improved rapidly

Lima, Ohio. Obtainable everywhere

four guests.

Travelers' Notes.
"From Palm Beach suit to light
overcoat weather is the change be
tween Chicago and Mackinac Island,"
writes Mr. T.J. Fitimorris, who, with
Women golfers who played in the
recent tournament are taking a rest.
The;- haven't discontinued golf ,er
manently, but now, instead of getting
up at 5 in the morning to follow the
elusive spheroid over the green mead
ows, they are napping end dreaming
of the time to come when they will
reel like playing again.
For the Friday women's srolf dav at
the Field club Mrs. Allan Parmer,
chairman, is planning something dif
ferent. Perhaps it will be a game of
rotary golf, that is, the continuous
use of clubs, irrespective of their ap
propriateness. At the luncheon which
Mrs. Karl Lininger gave today at the
Happy Hollow club, followed by
cards, the matter was under discus
sion "informally."
The municipal, women s monthly
golf tournament, which was to have
been held last Monday at Seymour
Lake, was postponed until next Mon
day because all the golfers were
"done to death" after the tournament.
This month's tournament, the August
event, will be held at the Country
club, and the last one will be at the
Council Bluffs Rowing association.
Bv the way. that tournament was a
huge success, the forerunner of a long
line of successlul tournaments, it is
hoped. The finish was truly exciting,
and when you consider that men, who
grudge a woman success in any sport,
applauded the great finale you can
appreciate just how good it was. ine
course was dry, of course, making
god playing more difficult, but that it
was an excellent exhibition every oi.j
The links are in fine condition after
the recent rains. A heavy course is
the test of a good player, I am told.
It steadies the player and insures
cleaner putt and more accurate
drives. Lots of golfers are not hin
dered by such little things as pouring
showers. At least one Omaha wo
man can tell how she played golf
whet, her shoes were squashing water
and she had to turn her hat down to
let the water run out.
An eastern oaper the other day told
how President and Mrs. Woodrow
Wilson were caught in a heavy show
er while playing golf, but like true
sportsmen they only hesitated long
enough to don raincoats before finish
ing their game.
Are your surprised that women
play golf? You shouldn't be, because
it is the best thii-g in the world for
"nerves." Mrs. Allan Parmer has
won herself a nickname which pre
cludes the possibility of nerves, by
playing golf. The women golfers call
her Charlie Chaplin and laugh all the
time that she if in the crowd. A great
many society women have forsaken
cards for golf, tennis and swimming.
