get's class. 80.6 per cent.
One tardy mark was recorded. This
is the second tardy mark in these
grades this y^-ar.
In most of the classes there is a
good attendance report, and the
teachers are very anxious that the
next two *veeks. before Christmas, be
the banner weeks. It is hoped every
room will have at least 98 per cent
in attendance, and this is not too
high for that allows two per cent for
sickness. The teachers and puplla
are going to work very, very hard for
this, but must have the help of par
ents as well as children. The help ol
the parents is desired in this work,
as the FDirit of co-operation is the
best kind of Christmas.

MUSTARDPLASTERS!
Musterole Works Easier, Quicker
and Without the Blister
There's no sense in mixing a mess of
mustard, flour and water when you can
easily reli ve pain, soreness or stiffness
with a little clean, white Musterole.
Musterole is made of pure oil of mus
tard and other helpful ingredients, com
bined in the form of a pleasant white
ointment. It takes the place of out-of
date mustard plasters, and will not blister.
Musterole usually gives prompt relief
from sore throat, bronchitis, tonsilitis,
croup, stiff neck, asthma, neuralgia, head
ache, congestion, pleurisy, rheumatism,
lumbago, pains and aches of the back or
joints, sprains, sore muscles, bruises,
chilblains, frosted feet, colds of the
:hest (it often prevents pneumonia).
