fangs she could almost feel once,
has been distanced by this widowed
mother. And her self-denial and
her hard work have made her home
a little place of glory all to herself
and the children. It's her heaven —
ithe heaven she found by love and

Before too Late
During the year 1909 a great
fanny verj prominent men passed
away and the number that suc
cumbed to Btomach trouble was
very large. Many underwent oper
ations by the most scientific
physicians, but, alas, the concensus

troubled with stomach trouble do
not delay, but investigate the many
testimonials from prominent citi

was letting in the sunlight to her
and her little ones.
When Mrs. Jacober gets her
diploma in a few weeks she will be
ready to start a course of training
in tho city normal school, and be
fore long she will be a teacher.
Lunch money, books and other
necessaries were gained by her
working around the school building.
"You really must excuse me,"
was her reply, when asked about
her brave struggle. It was in lan
guage you don't oftf>n hear after
climbing to the third floor rear.
"1 couldn't bear to be poor and
bring my children up to the grind

years ago. The regular course
lasts four years. Bflt I took double

Will Mrs. Jacober be a good
teacher? Authorities on education
say she will. For out of her depth
of misery has come a softened
soul, a soul with kindness toward
all, but most of all. to little chil

ones she will teach. It will be a
blessing to her, the day she starts
to teach, and a blessing to the chil
