There was an old geezer and he
had a lot of sense; he started up
a business on one dollar aud eighty
cents. The dollar for stock and
the eighty cents for an advertise

Well, he bought more goods and
a little more space. And he play
ed that system with a smile on his
face. The customers flocked to his
two-by-four, aud soon he had to
hustle for a. regular store. Up on
the square; where the people pass,
he gobbled up a corner that was all

and he told 'em about it in a half

Well, he's kept things humping

way to get 'em was to advertise.

and got down on his knees at his

have family prayers, I followed suit.
I saw that we were the only ones to
kneel, but I waited for the old man
to begin his prayers, but he failed
to call on me, so I' thought it was
to be a silent prayer.
Finally the old man got up un

all. At times, I would have severe pains
In my left side.
The doctor was called In, and his treat

soon confined to my bed again. After
that, nothing seemed to do me any good.
I had gotten so weak I could not stand,
and I gave up in despair.
At last, my husband got me a bottle o!
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I com

dose, I could tell it was helping me. 1
can now walk two miles without its
tiring me, and am doing all my work."

troubles, don't give up in despair. Try
Cardui, the woman's tonic. It has helped
more than a million women, in its 50
years of continuous success, and should
surely help you, too. Your druggist has
sold Cardui for years. He knows whai

Report of committee on school
The greater part of the meeting
will be devoted to the discussion
of agricultural subjects. This is
- o -
introductory, as explained by Mr.
Clement, to a series of agricultural
le'ssons to be offered the teachers
of the county through the teacher's
meetings. Ninety per cent of the
pupils of the rural schools will
make agriculture their life work,
and as mauy will depend solely for
their training on the rural school.
It is therefore imperative that they
receive some special instruction
along the line of their work.
The County Superintendent has
secured a supply of outlined les
Bons prepared especially for and
admirably, suited to the needs of
the rural schools. Theso will be
placed in the hands of teachers at
