What has California wine, “heavy” hors d’oeuvres, a classical string quartet playing danceable, lovable music and a chance to go home with a hand-crafted piece of jewelry? It’s not Paris (France or Texas). It’s not New York (no muggers). It’s not San Francisco (no wind and rain). If it’s not those places, it must be Lemoore’s “an evening under the stars, an elegant night on the town.” A crisp fall evening, complete with all the goodies, auction, and more. It all takes place on Saturday, Oct. 16, on “D” Street in Downtown Lemoore, according to Maureen Azevedo, event chair for the Downtown Merchants Advisory Committee, sponsor for the event.

For the first time in the history of Kings county a special train loaded with green grapes were shipped from Hanford Sunday. The grapes, about 700 tons, were packed by the Foley Packing Co. at their new packing house on Fourth St. near the cannery. The train will consist of forty-two cars and is billed for a through trip to Foley’s in Chicago. The green grape picking industry is still in its infancy in this county, this year being the first year that the packing companies have gone into it extensively. Assuming by the progress that it has made in the last few years it will soon rank high and may be the greatest industry in the county.

There are a great many people who would be very much benefited by taking Chamberlain’s Tablets for a weak or disordered stomach. Are you one of them? Mrs. M.R. Searl, Baldwinsville, N.Y., relates her experience in the use of these tablets: “I had a bad spell with my stomach about six months ago, and was troubled for two or three weeks with gas and severe pains in the pit of my stomach. Our druggist advised me to take Chamberlain’s Tablets. I took a bottle home and the first dose relieved me wonderfully, and I kept taking them until I was cured.” These tablets do not relieve pain, but after the pain has been relieved may prevent its recurrence.
