3TEXT BOOKS TO BE USED IN THE
tfusiness Was Divided Out Among
Several Houses?Many Hew
The State board of education last
week completed the adoption of text
books to be used In the public schools
of the State for the next five years. It
is said that the list selected will com
pare quite favorably with tha book
adoptions in other States, and It. Is
also claimed that this is the test list
which South Carolina has had.
There has always been more or less
of a difference between the books used
in the public schools in the country
and those used in the graded schools,
but many of these differences have
been eliminated in this adoption and
it is said that the list selected will do
for any city school in the State.
Governor Hey ward presided at the
meeting and State Superintendent
Martin, by reason of his having been
in the school work as a teacher and
subsequently has been able to give go
much time to the comparative study!
of tbe merits of text books, offered j
valuable suggestions. Tbe other
members present, representing the
congressional districts in the order
named, were: W. K. T?te of Charles
ton, J. E.- Boland of Blaokville, D.
W. Daniel of Olernson College, A. G.
Bembort of Wofford college, A. B.
Banks of Lancaster, Hartwell M
Ayer of Florence, and A. J. Tback
ston of Orangeburg.
The board adopted Dr. Henry Alex
ander White's History of South Caro
lina for the elementary grades and
Col. J. J. Dargan's for the seventh
and eighth grade?. Waddy Thomp
son's general history of the United
States was selected. Another book
by a South Carolina author which
was put on the list is Dr. D. D. Wal
lace's book on civics.
Under tbe new regulations made
by the State board of education, there
will be established in Columbia a cen
tral depository for the handling of
these text-books. This means that
probably 8100,000 a year in new busi
ness will be turned loose in Columbia.
This has been going to Atlanta and to
tbe publishers and it will be a great
accommodation to the teachers in tbe
State who may order from Columbia
and get the books tbe same day or
the following day.
In tbe common school course, the
best lot of readers was given to May
nard, Merrill & Oo., whose ' Graded

to me while we have a heart-to-heart
talk, for I expect to get as much as I
give. I want to think of my girls,
whether they are one year or ten or
twenty, as opening flowers?some of
them early spring beauties, others
summer roses?all sweet and tender,
and all needing love and care to de
velop the best that is in them.
Girls, dont be in a hurry to reach
young ladyhood and the advantages
you Imagine will be gained bv it. Do
not rob yourself of the rosy flush of
happy childhood. It will suon be
over. You will put away with loving
hands the playthings of your child
hood. How fleeting are the years of
childhood. As the years pass they
bring with intelligence and experience,
but take away the innocence 01 child
Girls, do you realize you are the
rosebuds in the garden of life? You
are the sweetest things that God or*
ated. Your voices are like music?si
unselfish and 8 fleet, so helpful and
loving that sad hearts grow glad and
sad faces brighten wherever you go.
Love tuis youta that Gjd has given
you, and forget not to thank Him for
it. There are no skeletons in your
cluset, no sorrowful memories to bring
the tears to your eye.
I hope you are all happy and cheer
ful the<e bright spring days. While
the birds arc building their hom^s in I

tbe world with m--: iiusy from
morning till night, they find time to

Co sing?sing and be happy and make
others happy.' Yes, follow the bird's
example and go slnglog to your work.
Surely God wants us to be cheerfui
and happy when He made this world
so beautiful for us. Kind, cheerful
people bring out the best that is in
us, so that we can hardly help being
good while we are under their influ
ence. There is no sweeter music in1
our heavenly Father's ears than the
Innocent song and laughter of his
children, and no sweeter tribute could
ever be made to the weary ones of
earth than that which comes from

Girls, have all the pets you want,
but don't keep any living thing in con

been eleven years since 3E walked tbe
green earth, and the time seems long
and dreary. I often long in the gla .
springtime to get away into some
deep tangled wlldwood and listen 11
the sweet songs of birds in joyious
freedom as they flit from wee to tree
I have learned l3ssons of patience
and submission to the divine will. Ad
never before I've learned the value of
true friends, to appreciate more and
more the love and friendship of pure
minded Christian girls. How patient-1
ly and sweetly, with tender hands
they ministered to me when the death
angel seemed very near. None but
God is sufficiently wise to understand
the heart of Christian girls. They
bring joy and peace to their horn?*.
They are the'r mother's compan'ons
and helperR, and their sweet influence
brings much of beayen down to earth
bv kpeping r.heir brothers' wandering
feet in paths of safety. Surely the
sheltering wings of che unseen ansrels
must hover very near our sweet girls.
God blew them and make us worthy
of their tender devotion.
Pure minded girls are not only
blessings in tbelr homes. We meet
with them on the highways and by
ways. One of them came into my life
as a ministering angel when I was far
from fri?nd?. when I was bereft of all
that made life worth living. But we
were as ships passing and bailing ea-h
other as we parsed. No girl can be
pure and good without the world be

ON LiTTLE BOY
Mouth and Eyes Covered With
Crusts?Face Itched Most Fear
fully?Hands Pinned Down to
BY C?TICURA REMEDIES
" "When my little boy was six month* old, ho
had eczema. The soreB extended bo quickly
orer the whole body that we at once called in
the doctor. We then
went to another doctor,
but he could not help
him, and in our despair
we went to a third one.
Matters became so bad
that he had regular
holes in his checks,
large enough to put a
finger into. The food
had to be given with a
spoon, for his mouth
was covsred with crusts
as thick a finger, and
whenever he opened the
mouth they began to
bleed and suppurate, as
did also his eyes.
Hands, arms, chest, and
back, in short the whole
body, was covered over
and over. We had no
rest by day or night.
Whenever he was laid
in his bed, we had fo
pin his hands down:
otherwiso he would
scratch his face, and
I think his face must
make an open sore,
have itched most fearfully.
" We finally thought nothing could help,
and I had made up my mind to send my wifo
with the child to Europe, hoping that the sea
air might cure him, otherwise he was to be
put under good medical care there. But,
Lord be blessed, matters came differently,
and we soon saw a miracle. A friend of ours I
spoke about Cuticura. We made a trial with |
Cuticura Soap, Ointment, and Resolvent, and
within ten days or two weeks we noticed a
decided improvement. Just as quickly as the |
sickness had appeared it also began to dis- j
appear, and within ten weeks the child was
absolutely well, and his skin was smooth and
white as never before." F. H?hrath, President
