An Army of Twenty Millions.
With'D a few days nearly twenty
million boys and girls will be en
rolled in the public and private
schools of the United States, for
ming the greatest array of its kind
the world has ever known. About
two million of these will be in the
private and incorporated institu
tions, and nearly eighteen million
in the public schools. There will
be nearly a half million in tie
city evening schools, the private
kindergartens, the Indian and
business schools, and others. The
private schools always show a larg
er propertion of increase in gool!
times because the parents then
have more money with, which to
educate their children. But at
their best these private schools
have only about one-eighth or one
ninth of the total of the
public schools. The school
system is therefore our chief
educational fact and factor.
It is the greatest single institution
of the country. Its teachers nuri
bernearly one-half a million-j
about thr^e-fourths are women
and these carry on their work n
nearly 300,000 schoolhouses, lo
pay for all these requires upwad
of two hundred million dollars ?
year, |and the value c
the school property is between five
and aix hundred millions.
These enormous figures increase
! every year ; increase more rapidly
in fact than the population itself
I for the school expenditure per in
habitant is larger every year, am
the teacher's salaries are beinj
raised ; rather too slowly, it is true
but surely. In the pa?t twenty
?years the public school expend
itures in (his country have increas
two and one-half times for p/opertj
and nearly three times for Bal ariei
and other expenses. It costs rift)
per cent, more to-day to educat?
au American boy or girl than it
did twenty years ago, but the
I quality of education is fully one
hundred cent, improved. N6 one
objects to spending money on the
schools, provided it is used by men
who know what thay are doing.
One good result that has been
achieved, too, has been the leng
thening of the school term, and
this must go on until the schools
in the rural districts are kept open
at least nine of the twelve months.
At present, with all the improve
ments, some of them are opun on
ly three or four months.
Among the progressive educator
the idea is general that the schoc
term should be shortened durih
the day and spread over as muc
of the year as possible. T)

there are thousands of wo
men who nearly suffer death
from irregular menses. Some
times the " period " comes too
often - sometimes not often
enough-sometimes the flow is
too scant, and again it is too
profuse. Each symptom shows
that Nature needs help, and
that there is trouble in the or
gans concerned. Be careful
when in any of the above con
ditions. Don't take any and
every nostrum advertised to
cure female troubles.
is the one safe and sure
medicine for irregular or pain
ful menstruation. It cures all
the ailments that are caused by
irregularity, such as leucor
rhcea, falling of the womb,
nervousness; pains in the head,
back, breasts, shoulders, sides,
hips and limbs. By regulating
the menses so that they occur
overy twenty-eighth day, all
those aches disappear together.
