Messrs. Charlie Quarles, P. H.
Hussey, and Henry Bussey, I'm
sure they are the right men in the
right place. It is the earnest de
sire of the teachers and trustees of
thia school, that they have the
hearty co-operation of the patrons
in making this one of the best
schools of its kind in the State.
The people of this community
are hospitable, pleasant and God
fearing and any one having a de
sire to visit our school may well
feel assured they will be given a
hearty welcome by both teachers
We have two churches in our
community one of which is in a
few steps of the school, and the
teacher and the patrons of the
school fully realise the aid of the
church towards the advancement
of the mental and moral as well as
spiritual development of the young.
The pulpits of these churches are
filled by consecrated divines.

Kindly 'permit us to advance
three'cogent reasons why yon
should use wines in your homes :
1st. Because, in addition tobe?
mg delightful stimulants, pure
wines are the basis of nearly
every tonic preparation in the
world and are unexcelled to
build up the system and quiet
THIS IS FOR
2nd. Because, in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, where
children become accustomed to the moderate ase of wines on the
dining table and otherwise in the household, they never acquire a
taste for heavy intoxicants.
THIS IS FOR JFf?PERAflCE' SAKE.
3rd. Because, the United States has facilities (climatic ana in
dustrial) for making more wines than any other nation, and yet
France produces annually 1,100,000,000 srallons to our 25,000,000. This
is an industry which, if fostered, would thrive mightily and give
employment to thousands.
THIS IS FOR PROSPERITY'S SAKE.
The Dispensaries all carry a full line of our Wines,a nd there is no
danger of confounding them with others. We guarantee our goods
to give satisfaction and, upon written statement that they do not, to
the Dispensary from which they were purchased, money will be re
funded. Try these Wines and judge for yourself.
