In Her Mother's Home, Says Thu
Georgia Lady, Regarding Black
Draoght Relief From Head
ache, Malaria, Chills, Etc.
Ringgold, Ga.- Mrs. Chas. Gaston,
of this place, writes: "I am a user
of Thedford's Black-Draught; In fact,
it was one of our family medicines.
Also in my mother's home, when I
was a child. When any of us child
ren complained of headache, usually
caused by constipation, she gave us
a dose of Black-Draught, which would
rectify the trouble. Often in the
Spring, we would have malaria and
chills, or troubles of this kind, we
would take Black-Draught pretty reg
ular until the liver acted well, and
we would soon be up and around
again. We would not be without it,
for it certainly has saved us lots of
doctor bills. Just a dose Df Black
Draught when not so well saves a
lot of days in bed."
Thedford's Black-Draught has been
in use for many years in the treat
ment of stomach, liver and bowel
troubles, and the popularity which it
now enjoys is proof of its merit
If your liver is not doing its duty,
yon will suffer from such disagree
able symptoms as headache, bilious
ness, constipation, indigestion, etc.,
and unless something is done, serious
trouble may result
Thedford's Black-Draught has been
found a valuable remedy for these
troubles. It Is purely vegetable, and

On Monday evening, June 3rd, the
Eleventh Grade will give their play.
This will consist of a double bill,
two one-act plays. The first, "An
Alarm of Fire," the second, "The
Slacker." These plays are full of in
terest and action. These young peo
ple are being trained by Miss Annie

out the evening. An admission fee
of 25cts. for children and 35cts. for
adults will be charged. All money

All exercises will begin promptly
at 9 o'clock. The public is given a
cordial invitation. The war is occu
pying rightly the predominant place
in everybody's mind, but let us not
forget our school, a support of it is
strengthening the inner line of de
fence. The way to show your support
and your interest in your own boys
and girls is to attend their exercises.

Every available vessel is being utilized

Many ships that have been carrying rubber from

rubber to this country is extremely limited.

So, make the most of the tires you have.
