"I HAVE TAKEN Cardui for run-down, worn-out
condition, nervousness and sleeplessness, and I was
we*k too," says Mrs. Silvie Estes, of Jennings, Okla.
"Cardul did me just lots of good-so much that I gave
it to my daughter. She complained of a soreness in her
sides and back. She took three bottles of Cardui and
-her condition was much better.
"We have lived here, near Jennings, for 26 years, and
now we have our own home in town. I have had to
work pretty hard, as this country wasn't built up, and it
made it hard on us.
"I WISH I could tell weak women of Cardul-the
medicine that helped give me the strength to go on and
do my work." This card fulfils her wish.

DEDICATION OF CENTRAL *
* * * * * e - 5 * * e * * S
It was a happy event, when on the
evening of November 28th we gathered
together to celebrate the dedication of
our now. school house at Central. Fac
es brightened as they entered the beau
tiful building, so neatly and complete
ly finished, and all so artistically dec
orated for this glad occasion. The
stars and stripes waved over us, and
pot plants and chrysantheniuns en
hanced the charm of the' place. The
blackboards were especially attractive,
decked in Thanksgiving designs,
fruits, and pumpkins and turkeys that
almost said "gobble! gobble!4 This
entire work was the free-hand draw
ing of one of the gifted puils, Aliene
The exercises were conducted by
Rev. I. N. Kennedy, whom we all know
and love. Tie began with praye-. Then
told us his part on the programin was
Just to "crank up". 'But soon the
"self-starter" worked like magic and
we found ourselves sailing along with
hiin, 'wondering at the progressive age
in which we live, admiring our new
school house anew, and feeling justly
proud of it. On and on he carried us,
until with the mental eye we saw our
second mile stone,-a good top-soil
road through this community leading
to our school Bye and bye he led us
to the third mile-stone,-the time when
most of the Central boys and girls will
be sent to college Would that these
two mile-stones soon be attaiied!
During the evening the schaol chil
dren sang patriotic songs, "Amer
ica, the Beautiful," "South Carolina,"
and "A patriotic Medley." This clear,
Eweet, animated singing must have re
joiced the heart of every mother and
father ,)resent, and certainly shed
glory upon their teachers who had so
skillfully trained them.
'1r. (Italph Wilson, our superintend
ent of education, was the second
speaker. if we followed him closely,
we must all have carried home that
night hearts, grateful for our -public
schools and democratic government,
and grateful above all for our Chris
tian homes, in which rests the ark of
the covenant of the safety of .the peo
ple. And I am sure we all left, deter
mined to be a "booster" and not a
Among the many splendid things -Mr.
Wilson told us, there were two strik
ing needs of the day 'which especially
appealed to the writer. These were:
first, the need of medical examinations
in every school, and second, the dis
tressing need of longer terms in the
country schools. We hope out' school
will, ore long, attain each of these
The dedication reached its zenith
in the speech of Mr. A. C. Todd, the
lawyer, emohloyed in floating the bonds.
'He gave us much food for thought. Let
us make the best use of it. Ile ex
pounded to us the fundamental fact,
that a structure is sure to fall unless
built upon a deep, solid foundation.
tMr. Todd also taught us that the soul
of man is the greatest undeveloped
power in Ithe Universe and religion is
the principal thing. Over and beyond
the teaching of algebra, and dead his
tory, etc., good as they are, we saw
that the main object of the school is
to prepare the pupils to be good, all
round, law-abiding citizens.
Immediately after the exercises the
speatKers were ushered into an ante
room wvhere light refreshments were
served iby members of the Ladies'
School Improvement assocration.
We a:'preciate the thoughtfulness of
those 'who planned and lperpetuatedl
this "pel)," "get-together" meeting. But
above all we appr'eciate .the sincere
kindness and the genial Interest nmani
fested by Messrs, Kennedy, Wilson and
Todd. They came regardless of in
clement weather. Their speeches were
entertaining, instructive -and inspir
ing, For' Central thtis truly was a
"red letter" night.
"On Central, dear', 0 Central, near,
God shed 'Ils grace on you,
And crown thy good with brotherhood,
Most loyal and most true.''
