CAKU OF THANKS.
The preparatory and training
school will begin at the Benton
Seminary on May 21, RiOo.
This course is on the order of n
review, and is fitted especially for
teachers. It will include both the
primary and secondary grades, and
it will be so arranged that anyone
so desiring may take both courses.
Your county superintendent ur
ges that all teachers take this
course, as they will be more ablo
to take tho examination and to ac
complish a higher grade of teaching.
The city public school closes on
May 22, 11)03, and the training
school will be run independent of
tne public school.
The tuition will be $2.00. It is
hoped that all the teachers will
take advantage of this relent opportunity.

To whom it may concern:
lhis is to certify that my wife
has suffered thirteen years with
granulated eyelids and sore eyes,
and at times could not see her way ;
all remedies she tried did her no
good until we heard of Dr. D. Gar
tinkle's Eye Remedy, so we decided
to give it a trial, and now am glad
to state to all my friends and the
general public that two bottles cur
ed her eyes, she can see as good as
anybody, and does not suffer any
pain at all. I do cheerfully rec
ommend Dr. D. Garfinkle's Eye

Editor The Ciironici.k:
AVords are inadequate to express
my heartfelt appreciation of the
liberal response of the many kind
friends who gave their presence
and generous contributions at my
"Dime Shower" last Friday even
ing for the improvement of the
parsonage. Highly gratifying and
pleasing was the delightful music
rendered by the (Jlaude Hudson
Concert Band, and the bright and
sweet little girls added interest and
enthusiasm by entertaining recita
tions. To one and all, who kindly
gave help and thereby opened the
way to the realization of my cher
ished desires, is gladly tendered the
sincerest thanks of a truly grateful
heart. Mrs. D. C. Johnson.
