Word reached the county court Monday that the Dollarhides, owners of the toll road, are holding up tourists for sums varying from $2.50 to $5 for use of the road, which has not been repaired this year. The lower portion of the road was purchased by the county court, and it was understood that the toll feature would thereupon be abandoned.
Instead, the price has been raised from $1.50, the old charge, evidently in the expectation of gouging all that can be grabbed before the completion of the new highway.
County Judge Tou Velle stated this morning that he would take the matter up with County Attorney Kelly with a view toward enjoining Dollarhide or otherwise abating the nuisance.
The hottest day of the year was recorded Sunday (yesterday) afternoon when the mercury rose to 94.5 degrees at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. In the evening, clouds began to gather in the south, and at 6 o'clock a thunder shower broke, .25 inches of rain falling. This noon, the mercury hovered between 90 and 92 degrees with prospects of equaling or exceeding Sunday's record.
A peculiarity of the thunder shower was that rain fell heavily in certain spots, skipping other sections.
Saturday the mercury rose to 92.3 degrees. A slight breeze is somewhat mollifying the heat today.
Women have to smile in a great many cases and try to make those around them happy, while they are racked with the pain of organic trouble. Few men realize how common such heroism is. The remedy for this condition is Lydia E. Pinham's Vegetable Compound — a simple remedy made from roots and hers, which for forty years has been overcoming the most obstinate ills of women. Every woman suffering from female ills owes it to herself and her family to give it a fair trial.
