A Beautiful Canadian Girl Saved From
Catarrh of the Lungs by Pe-ru-na.
MISS FLORENCE KEXAIf.
Miss Florence E. Kenah, 434 Maria street, Ottawa, Ont., writes :
vt few months ago I caught a severe cold, which settled on my
lungs and remained there so persistently that I became alarmed. I
took medicine without benefit, until my digestive organs became
upset, and my head and back began to ache severely and frequently.
"I was advised to try Peruna, and although I had little faith I
felt so sick that I was ready to try anything. It brought me blessed
relief at once, and I felt that I had the right medicine at last. Within
three weeks I was completely restored and have enjoyed perfect
I now have the greatest faith in Peruna. " F. E. KEN AH.
VYTOMEN should beware of contract
ing1 catarrh. The cold wind and
., rain, slush and mud of winter are espe
cially conducive to catarrhal derange
ments. Few women escape.
Upon the first symptoms of catching1
cold Peruna should betaken. It forti
fies the system against colds and ca
tarrh. The following letter prires one young"

Miss Kose Gerbinp; is a popular society
woman of Crown Point, Ind., and she
writes the following':
"Recently I took a long1 drive in the
country, and being1 too thinly clad I
caught a bad cold which settled on my
lungs, and which I could not seem to
shake off. I had heard a great deal of
Peruna for colds and catarrh and I

daughter that I am hunting for

" I had terrible pains along" my
spinal cord for two years and suffered
dreadfully. I was given different
medicines,, wore plasters ; none of
these thing-s helped me. Reading; of
the cures that Lydia 1Z. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound has brought
about, I somehow felt that it was
what I needed and bought a bottle to
take. How glad I am that I did so;
two bottles brought me immense re
lief, and after using thnee bottles more
I felt new life and blood surging
through my veins. It seemed as
though there had been a regular house
cleaning through my system, that all
the sickness and poison had been taken
out and new life given me instead. I

A, Comparison Between Several
Southern and Several Northern
and Western States.
The illiteracy among the native
white population ten years old and
over for several states, is shown by
the following figures. It will be seen
that the illiteracy among this class
of people in the southern states is
many times greater than illiteracy
among the same class in other sec
tions. For example the illiteracy
among the native white population of
Texas, where the per cent, is smaller
than in any other southern state, ia
just 12 times as great as it is in the
state of Washington, while in Missis
sippi it is 16 times as great and in
North Carolina 30 time-s as great. In
South Carolina the per cent, is 17
times as great as in Connecticut, Mas
sachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska or
Wyoming; in Tennessee 12 times as
great as in New York, Michigan or
Wisconsin. In Texas 6.1 per cent, of
the native white population ten years
old and over can neither read nor
write; in Mississippi, 3 per cent.; in
Florida, 8.6 per cent.; in West Vir
ginia, 10 per cent.; in Virginia, 11. 1
per cent.; in Georgia, 11.0 per cent.;
in Arkansas, ll.G per cent.; in Ken
tucky, 12.8 per cent.; in South Caro
lina, 13.6 per cent.; in Alabama, 14.3
per cent.; in Louisiana, 17.3 per cent.;
in North Carolina, 19.5 per cent.; in
Missouri. 4.8 per cent.; in Illinois, 2.1

There is every needful reason to
justify such an adjustment of our
school svstem that every child may
begin with the alphabet of his primer
to learn also some of the easy and
productive uses for which the Creator
gave him his eyes and ears, his hands
and feet. By instructing him in the
use of these natural implements of
production upon the raw material of
his immediate environment he will
learn that God made'Yiothing for folly
or waste, lie will come to feel that
work is worthy, ennobling and profit
able. He will come from the work
shop of the school to take an effect
ive position in 1he workshops of the
world without feeling that lie has de
scended from the "heights of Homer"
to the coalheaps of Caliban.
The south is to be redeemed by her
own sons and daughters to an inde
pendence of character, economies and
power that will make her ashamel
and fearful in the face of no rival.
The way to that safety and su
premacy lies through the school room
and the power of it will come from
the dynamics of such schools as are
advocated by President Branson and
are being exploited by the Georgia
Federation. Atlanta Const it ut Win.
TAXATION IS ECONOMY.
Best ;overnnient Insured Where tho
Community Taxes Itself Liber
ally for Education.
I am a firm believer in the proposi
tion that the largest possible expendi
ture is the wisest possible economy,
and if we are going to arouse our peo
ple to an appreciation of the situation
we must approach them from that
point of view. Every great statesman
has accepted the proposition that ed
ucalion is the foundation of liberty,
and we must to-day accept the propo
sition that it is the basis of wealth. If
we approach it from the point of view
of wages we see that wages depend
upon training, and training can best
be received through the institution
that society has developed to promole
that training the public school. And,
finally, we in the south need to con
form our theory of government to
our every day thinking and practice,
rejecting the proposition that the
community which governs itself least
governs best and substituting for it.
the proposition that the community is
best governed which governs itself
most. That state or commonwealth,
then, enjoys the best government
which most freely and liberally taxes
itself for the support of its public
schools. David T. Houston.
If agriculture were taught in our
common schools much of the false im
pression now in the minds of the
farmer boys would be cleared away,
and a higher . value placed upon 1 lie
farm and the farmer, and he would
fjuickly see the opportunities offered
by the life of a farmer when conduct
ed on business principles, and he
would not be in such a hurry to rush
to the town or city to seek other em
ployment. When we consider that ag
riculture is the foundation stone up
on which rests the happiness, pros
perity and greatness of our country,
and without which all other enter
prises would fail, it seems strange
would be so little conridered as a part
of our educational system. The time
has come for action along these lines,
and the day is not far distant whrn
more of the science of agriculture will
be taught in all the schools and less
of foreign exchange and Greek. To
this end every farm paper and every
newspaper should work until we place
the profession of the farmer at its
rightful place at the head of all the
professions requiring a knowledge of
plant growth and requirements, and,
above all, business ability. Is there
any- other profession that requires a
broader and more comprehensive edu
cation than this? Hen G. Sevier, in

Qualities of the highest order are neces
sary to enable the best of the products of
modern commerce tc attain permanently
to universal acceptance. However loudly
heralded, they may not hope for world-wide
preeminence unless they meet with the
general approval, not of Individuals only,
but of the many who have the happy
faculty of selecting, enjoying and learn
ing the real worth of the choicest prod
ucts. Their commendation, consequently,
becomes important to others, since to
meet the requirements of the well In
formed of all countries the method of
manufacture must be of the most per
fect order and the combination the most
excellent of Us kind. The above is true
not of food products only, but ia espe
cially applicable to medicinal agents and
after nearly a quarter of a century of
growth and general use the excellent
remedy. Syrup of Figs, is everywhere
accepted, throughout the world, as the
best of family laxatives. Its quality Is
due not only to the excellence of tho
combination of the laxative and carmin
ative principles of plants known to act
most beneficially on the system and pre
sented in the form of a pleasant and re
freshing liquid, but also to the method
of manufacture of the California Fig
Syrup Co.. which ensures that uniformi
ty and purity essential in a remedy In
tended for family use. Ask any physi
cian who is well informed and he will
answer at once that it is an excellent
laxative. If at all eminent lit his pro
fession and has made a special study of
laxatives and their effects upon the sys
tem he will tell you that it is the best
ot family laxatives, because It Is sim
ple and wholesome and cleanses and
sweetens the system effectually, when
a laxative is needed, without any un
pleasant after-effects. Every well-informed
druggist of reputable standing
knows that Syrup of Figs is an excel
lent laxative and Is glad to sell it, at
the regular price of fifty cents per bot
tle, because it gives general satisfac
tion, but one should remember that in
order to get the beneficial effects of
Syrup of Figs It is necessary to buy the
