Rainfall was even heavier in the western part of the county than here, said reports. Grain was helped, and at the same time the rain, although at times nearing cloudburst propor- tions was not sufficient to damage blossoms on the fruit trees. The seasonal total now stands at 8.G6 inches, as compared to 8.22 last! year at this date. 1 Following are this season's rainfall j figures by days, giving the total; rainfall on the corresponding day' during the 1928-29 season: Daily Total Total' '29-'30 '28-'29 j Tipping Now Dying Art, Says Bellhop TRIAL IN The good old Spanish custom of tipping it is a Span- ish custom, but what's the differ- dying out, bemoans Dick Fletcher, bell boy extiaoidinary and pilot of Hotel Woodland's do luxe elevator.

But there is coming a day, and it won-'t be very long, Dick feels, that there will be no more tip- ping. He has been in the racket five yeais and duiing that time there has been a giadual decline in the generosity of hotel guests throughout the alley.

He told the Achaeans, man.Vj of whom are newcomers to Wood- J land, of the changes in the city dur-j ing the last 25 years. He declared at' one time there was a horse-drawn street car plying from the station up Main street to Holy Rosary Academy, and it was one of the means of a Sun- clay afternoon outing in the days be- foie automobiles.

Flu'ke was treated at the Wood- land Clinic late Wednesday. His face and head were exposed to the fumes and were affected the worst. Other parts of Fluke's body contracted the poison from this odd contact. helped themselves Savage a Winchester rifle, afshotgun and re-. volver together- with a large amount' of ammunition. They also loaded their car up with tools of all desorip-, tions. canned goods, meat and two five-gallon cans of gasoline and several gallons of kerosene and were j fully prepared for a lengthy sojourn in the mountains. The lads were without money and were on the best of terms with their fathers in Stockton, so they said, but were venturesome and were anxious for a lark. Thpy were held overnight in the woman's department at the county jail to await the arrival of their parents from Stockton. An ef- fort was made at the sheriff's office to have the lads cared for at the Napa Detention home, but that was impos- sible owing to the crowded condition, and an appeal to the county hospital met with unfavorable action.

It is the final account and petition for distri- i bution in the trust of Hattie Cusack, deceased. Twenty thousand of those mis- erable punctures that happen just as the family gets started on the Sunday outing, or that cut short the shopping period by a half hour, or cause those long waits for the garageman on a blustry or scorching day are to be eliminated. For J. W. Howell. Y. M. C. A. secretary, has estimated that 80 of his "Y" boys can prevent at least that many punctures during their "Prevent Punctures" cam- paign that started Thursday and to run for five days. It-is purely a civic benefit en- terprise. The boys are to gather nails, tacks, pieces of glass and sharp instruments from high- ways, streets and alleys and bring them to the "Y" clubhouse each day for counting. At the conclusion of the drive, the high point boy in each club will be given a Y. M. C. A. knife prize.
