MANY PUBLIC SCHOOLS
MAY BE CLOSED
Governor Hlease Still Refuses to. Act
with State Treasurer and Coniptrol
Columbia, March 30.?The governor
of South Carolina has refused to act
with the State treasurer and the comp
troller general, members of the State's
financial board and as a result many
of the schools of the State may have
to close down earlier than usual. Some
definite action must be taken tomor
row. State Superintendent of Educa
tion Swearlngen has sent letters to
all members of the board cal'lng at
tention to the immodlntr? need of
$30,000. Tho borrowing of this money
is made necessary 'because of the one
mill school tax law passed at the last
session of the general assembly. The
collection of the tax will not begin
until next October and in the mean
time at least $150,000 must be secured.
Those In touch with the situation say
that the banks will refuse to take the
notes of the State unless signed by the
governor. The matter has been put
squarely up to the chief executive and
in an Interview In the local afternoon
paper he said that he would not act
with the other officials. He charged
that the situation had been brought
about by the general assembly and
that he was not responsible.
In a letter several days ago State
Superintendent of Education Swear
lngen said that 25,000 white school
children would be thrown out of
school If the money was not secured
at an early date. The matter has
rocked along all of last week and now
It seems as if something must be

a great improvement would be made in the condition of horses and
other animals if just the proper remedy were used when they became
ill or injured. If your horse could talk he would ask you not to use
any external remedy containing alcohol because it slings and tortures
his flesh terribly. Some liniments have alcohol and other fiery
ingredients which only inflame the skin and tissue without sinking
down to where the pain lies. Beware of such liniments. The great
humane, quick-acTion remedy is MEXICAN MUSTANG LINIMENT.
Made of oils, without a drop of alcohol or other torturing element, it
soaks straight to the bone and muscle. It soothes the wounded part3
and is comforting while the healing work is progressing. Mexican.
Mustang Liniment is what you want because it
your work lighter, saves your livestock from suffering and keeps them
in good trim for work. For all forms of Lameness, Strains, Bruises,
Cuts, Bums, Galls and Harness Sores in animals, it is safe and
prompt and does not promise what it cannot perform. Mustang
Linimen. has been doing its wonderful healing work for 65 years.
The amount of money it has saved livestock owners is incalculable.
One man writes that he was about to kill his valuable horse because
badly injured but Mustang Liniment made him well again. A Vet
erinary tells us he has used Mustang Liniment fifteen years and
found it best liniment for cuts, strains, etc. And many others are
enthusiastic friends of this tried and fame remedy. Now you know
just what makes
Horses so Happy.
