It cannot be conceded that under trie

or what becme of the chikl
birth to bv Mis. McCoy three years
ago at the Bethel, I am unable to de
termine. W hut is for the best interest
of the child? Mm. McCoy is a hsid
working woman, and btibeen kind to
it. I ibould hi dilate to take the child
from her if rhe were shown undoubt
edly to b its metier. Mies Gallagher
his shown a character in this trial
which precludes the delivery of it to
her. It is to the intatett of
tie child to remain where it is, in tfce
Hones of Refuge. If Mre. McCoy
can ia the fatore show that she is its
mother, other disposition may be
made of the case. Let the decree re
entered. The cbi'd is remaodtd to
the custody of the Honss of K'fuge.
This decree is without p ejmlice to

About twenty year ago I dlaeorered a little sore on my check, and the doctors pro.
nonnccd it cancer. I have tried a nambcr of phjrticlana, but without rccelvtns any perma
nent benefit. Among t!5nber were one or two epeclalit. The medicine tncy applied
wu like are to the aore .yiiie intcnso pain. I aaw a (tatcment in ttio papcre telling what
8. 8. 8. had done for oinLf almilarly afllicttd. I procured aome at once. Before I had nacd
the second bottle the neighbors could notice that mj cancer waa healing np. My general
health bad been baa for two or throe years 1 haa a hacking eougn ana epit blood contla
sally. I had a eeTere pain in my breast. After taklnj six bottles of 8. 8. 8. my coogh left
me and I grew stouter than I had been for sereral year. My cancer has healed over all but
a little epot about the size of a half dime, and It Is rapidly disappearing. 1 would advise
every one with cancer to give b. S. b. a fair trial.

Yiu will thus see there is now avtil-
able out of th s fund only the sum cf
$4597 24, where ihore stiould be
$1500 additional, betide tbe fi-
paid Mr. Cowitt.
The money pa'd to Mr. Coisi t by
Mr. HadJen, Pie.'id-nt of the TaxinK
District, was reported to the board
last year and conditionally approved,
and do complaint s now made thereto,
but tbe payment made by ttie Pie;i
dent of tte Taxing District to Mr. W.
A. Collier was a voluateer act of tbe
tity authoti its, with6ut the coLsent
of the board, and sboold not be tub-
mitted to by the board.
I is ttus that tbe fund naaapliel
to tbe payment of a judgment on
bonds issued by tbe old city to build
scbcolbouses, reeured by lien there
on, but the city of Memphis was, and
its succe3for i?, prima l y liable for the
payment of these bonds, and the debt
should have been d ssbarged ontoi ita
part oi the lund ar.fcing from said levy,
or from the cMhct'on of back taxes
due tbe schoo's, which now, by a de
cision of the Supreme Court and oper
ation of law, belong to tbe Taxing Dis
Io other word?, the Taxing District
is now the beneficiary of the taxes
levied by tbe old city ti pay these
identical bonda and coupCB,a--d its
governing ofllcer applies the money
intended by law to b-t app'ied to the
erection of naw buildings to the pay
ment ol the old debt, created ry the
etection of the old buildings. Tois i
piece of injustice that should not be
permitted by thoee intrusted with the
interest of the public schools. We
need every dollar to keep down our
indebtednes and meet thedemands of
'he public. It ia the duU ol the board
to sea tbat this money ii app ied as
tiie law intended it abould be applied,
and I recommend tbat suitable action
be taken at ores to secure to the
schools the immeliate benefit ol this
fund. Kesnec.f ully submit ed,
