EAST JORDAN. MICHIGAN, SATURDAY. AUGUST 31. 1912.
Fall Term Begins Monday
The public schools will open in all
departments next Monday, September
nd fur the work of the new hdiool
year. We xpect to brgln wark the
list day, not t he second not the third
day, and your.child yviil start off with
p. handicap If he falls to enroll the
first day. yacatlo trips should not
be prolonged nor other cause of a tar
dy beginning permitted. It is ex
pected that the text books will be uu
band at Spring's Drug Store so that
pupils may come provided. Students
of the high school should tirst enroll
and classify before procuring (tet
la order to have an excellent school
there must be pupils of hitih quality
as well as a highly competent teacher.
The school is a cooperative enterprise
of the utmost value. .There is none
greater io "any commuuity. Sciutol
board, taxpaers, parents, and child
ren must ail contribute their best.
Thoughtful parents realise how much
Jarge is the scope of their duty than
'merely to send the child to school,
His physical well-being must be
looked after. lie must have comfort
able clothing, nourishing food, abun
dant sleep, and be kept ueat and clean .
This ii quite a contract in a family
of four or Jive. Especial care should
be tfiven to the eyes, ears and teeth,
fcio important Jh this regarded in many
cities that medical supervision is
-provided at public expense. Each
child should be supplied with imple
ments wf his trade.text books, pencils,
tablets ,etc, and this promptly to
Avoid loss of valuable time through
Vexatious delays. In this district an
unusually large part of the pupil's
equipment 1s supplied at public ex
pense. All his penmanship matanal
-except pens and pencils, his drawing
and music material, and supplement
ary reading in addition to the circu
lating library. Taxpayers who have
qo children Join cheerfully with par
ents in sharing this burden, so that
the children of the poorest may have
their, chance at the best the schools
can do for them. N
In view of this generous iblic sup
port of the schools, It is particularly
Incumbent upon all parents to keep
the children in school without mak
ing it necessary to resort to the com
pulsory iaw. The school, .authorl ties
must enforce this law and this Is not
at all a pleasant duty. To keep the
children In school calls for sacrilice
oo the part' of parents 'amouuting in
some cases almost so heroism, but
nevertheless It is clcarlv the tmrcnl'.-i
duty., Parents do not own the child's
time, lie must have his chance, his
lights ars'paramount to the parents
Rights so say's the state. Children
Ju good health, over 7 and under 15
years of age must be kept In school,
'public or parochial, unless they have
.completed the eighth grade. Where
extreme need exists the school board
may grant labor "permits fu certain
pases to children over li years of age.
We give herewith the names of the
teachers and their positions. We
hope that the patrons of the school
ruav early become acquainted with
them in the promotion of helpful
cooperation in looking after the best
interests of the children. Acquaint
ance often prevents pilutul misunder
standings. The Faculty, 1912-1913

FLYING IN FLORIDA.
Man and Machine Who Come
To Our Fair Gives Success
From an official report of Stroebels
latest aeroplane and hydroplane per
formance at St. Augustine, Fla,, the
following Is quoted:
"Dobell was the first to make a
trial lliglit from the water. When he
got Into the air he turned his plane
in the direction of the Spanish Fort
and flew almost a mile before circling.
Returning, he sported with the
yachts and various craft which
dotted the lake, bv swooning down
and then rising. His highest, alti
tude was about three thousand
feet. lie was about an hour and fif
teen minutes in the air, and during
the time covered a distance of many
miles. All of his flying was done in
plain view of the crowds on the pier
aud his graceful spirals and right
and left turns excited unanimous ad
miration. It was perhaps the most
graceful and cleverly executed hydro
plane flight ever witnessed in the
south. When he finally alitrhted on
the water, Dobell, Instead of killing
his engine reduced its speed a little
and rode along on his pontoons on the
surface of the water to within a foot
of the place from which he started."
Dobell and the machine referred to
above will make two flights daily at
the Charlevoix County Fair.
The Shepherd of the Hills
Harold Bell Wright, the author of
The Shepherd of the Hills,' which
comes to the Temple Theatre en
September 13th Is conceded to be the
most popular American novelist. No
modern author's hooks have had any
thing like tho sale that has been ac
corded to Mr. Wright's works.
Nearly everyone is familiar with
the characters In "The Shepherd of
the II III." They are people out of
the ordinary run of life, people whose
veins run good, rich, red blood. They
do thl rigs in a natural, human way
they love and hate with deep passion.
In making a play of, his novel. Mr.
Wright with the assistance of Ells-
bury W. Reynolds has retained all
the dramatic moments of the story
and eolarged upon the character of
Trench In Bill," making a character
of hltn that will be long remembered
by theatre goers. Naturally the love
between "Sammy Lane" and "Yotini?
Matt" is the pivot upon which the
Messrs. Gaskill and McVlttv, the
producers, have mounted the play In
a suniptlous manner and given It a
cast that promises to prove unique in
the matter of types.
There is nothing more disappoint
ing to a woman who wants to tell a
secret than the discovery that the
other wopjan Is already next to it,

The season for Graham Pud
ding, Muffins and Gems
is here again. There is no food so well adapted
for use in the warm and hot months as that pre
pared from Graham Flour, if the Graham is the
real true-to-name kind as it contains tho natural
phosphates of the grain. Our Graham is made
from native wheat, cleaned, re-cleaned, and
ground by one reduction on a French Bhur,
so that it contains all the natural elements of the
grain. It is far better than all the so-called
health foods and cuts down the high cost of
living. Ask your dealer for it and get the .
