ELDER HENRY CUNNiiSiGKAm
For Weak, Run-Down People.
I was run down and weak from
indigestion and general debility, also
suffered from vertigo. I saw a cod
liver preparation called Vinol adver
tised and decided to give it a trial,
and the results were most gratifying.
After taking two bottles I regained my strength, and am
now feeling unusually well." ? HENRY CUNNINGHAM,
Elder Baptist Church, Kinston, N.C.
Vinol contains the two most v/orld-famed tonics?the medicinal,
strengthening, body-buiiding elements of Cod .Liver Oil and Tonic
Iron. Vinol contains no oil. and is by far the Best Strengthening
Tonic obtainable. We return your money without question
S Vinol does not accomplish all we claim for it.

Subject of An Address by Miss Maggie
M. Gtirliugton In Columbia During
Convention of Teachers*
Notuble among the addresses made
at the recent teachers' convention Id
Columbia, was the address by Miss
Maggie M. Garllngtori of Laurens
county before the South Carolina Im
provement association. Miss Garl
ington is a native of Columbia; for
the past two sessions she has taught
in this county, being the head of the
Friendship school.. The suuject of
Miss Qarlington's address was "Suit
able Pictures for the Sc hool Rooms."
The full text Is as follows:
In selecting pictures for the school
room, one Is often embarrassed by the
wealth of material. Some plan should
be followed and so arranged as to
suit the age and development of the
child. Pictures which thrill with life,
which show the hopeful side of toil,
and which breathe a note of nature's
awakening will be most suitable. Lit
tle children upon tirst entering school,
are always attracted to those pictures
which have in them an element of
home life; pictures of Madonnas,
which speak to them of the mother
love from the sheltering care of which
they have just emerged; pictures of
children at play, calling to mind their
own childish sports; pictures of ani
mals in which they see the pets with
whose habits and ways they are fa
Heginning with the pure- delight of
the little child. knowledge should
"grow from more to more" until the
pupil has gained some acquaintance
with the world's greatest artists and
their paintings. The impressions
made upon the young mind nro lasting,
and whatever pictures are placed be
fore the little child will exert an in
fluence upon him throughout life.
Second grade pupils will enjoy pic
tures of Rosa Honhcur and will be
Interested in the story of her life.
Lanseer and his paintings cd' animals
will furnish acceptable material for
study for the third grade children.
Raphael is a representative artist to
present to fourth grade classes. Mil
let and his works are well suited to
the fifth grade pupils, while Reynolds
and bis wonderful portraits appeal
very strongly to the sixth grade. In
the seventh and eighth grades, the
works of some of the best known land
scape painters, a few famous histori
cal paintings, and pictures based upon
religious or legendary themes can be
used with profit. One other point re
metnberi pictures should be large and
should be suitably framed. It is n
great temptation to buy four small
pictures rather than one large one.
Plain moulding with nothing to catch
the dust and worry the eye is a safe
choice. Very wide frames and mats
are out of place in the school room.
It would seem unnecessary to add
that whatever is placed upon the walls
of our school rooms should be beauti
ful. We want the children to live just
as long as possible with the sunshine
and the flowers, with the birds and the
cherubs, with the saints and the Ma
donnas, and if a picture helps them
to observe more carefully, if it broad
ens their outlook, if it strengthens
their sympathies, if it gives them
pleasure and a moral uplift, then it
Is a good picture and they are better
for having seen it.
