If you are all run down from womanly
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 Cardul for years. He knows what
it will do. Ask him. He will recom
mend it. Begin taking Cardui today.

The following is a Iart of the an
hual report of "Miss Mary Eva lite,
president of the South Carolina School
Improvement association, submitted
to that organization at tho regular

State Teachers' association last week
From Aliss lIte's report it is seen
that she has spent from thr'ee days to
two weeks in each of the 27 counties
visiting schools with the county su
perintendent of education, the super
vising teacher, or the county organiz
er. In the 27 counties she has visited
30-i schools or school communities.
The report further says: "I feel
sure that fully two thirds of the white
slchools of the state observed Clean
itup day, bit only 29 counties reported
it. Only four counties reported the
observanee it every sclool."
The following paragraph is partic
ilal interest ing:
We are sure to have at least 700

us to get certifled reports from that

w ind Ihat the .122 associations have
10,1310 mtelbers wh.]to have held 1,1119
meetings since Apill, 1914. These or

got into the parade of Laurens county

were lavish in their attentions. The
resit of the day was spent in ree

enjoyed everything. We thank all of
