Generally when we talk of improving the common schools we are supposed to mean more money, better school build ings, better hygienic surroundings. These things are all necessary, but what the teachers should do Is them selves to raise the standard of teaching each year. The methods of teaching advance arid improve each year and it is imperative that this standard be raised as the years pass, but this work of advancement ought to come from within, that is, from the teaching force itself. Teaching is a high calling and a most honorable profession. It is. therefore, incumbent upon those who intend to make it a life service that they fit ' themselves not only to stand a cut-and dried examination, but to meet all of the exacting duties that rest upon them and to keep ubreust of the new manner and modes of teaching. This we believe to be the purpose of most of the teachers of today, but here, as elsewhere, there is always an element laying school interest and requirement aside and trying to put church, politics and personal feeling into the issues Politics, religion and personalities should be kept out of the school. Of course we reed christian, cultured, broad minded men and women at the head of educational aftairs, because there are problems in education which can be solved best by the teaching force, to the solution of which teachers must contribute valuable advice based upon experience and constant observation, Teachers Should be leaders In all educa tional progress, but their friends should leave political, personal and church considerations outside of theirqualiflca tions as educators. HARMONIOUS MASS MEETING Garrard Democrats Adopt Resolutions Endorsing State And National Officials. The most harmonious mass convention ever held in the countv was that held by the Democrats last Saturday after noon to select delegates to the State convention. Hon. J. I.

When someone gives you a lot of gush about a neighbor, be blind, deaf and ddmb, remembering always the old adago that, "A dog that will bring bone will carry one away," When someone gives you a song and dance about somt other person the same one will give them the same about you. So beware of the dog carrying a bone, for you may be the subject for the vile tongue when it again meets someone who will listen. You have your short comings and if you are bright you know it, but you don't want someone with no mole good qualities than you have to run about town airing your fallings. And the only way to prevent It is to give no credence to the bone carrying dog when it comes to you. BAPTIST CHURCH. 9 A. M, Bib! rchool. 11 A. M. No preaching. 7;30 P, M.

A census of birds is to be taken all over the country the last of May and first of June by Federal investigators, It Is believed that by counting nest ing places, a fairly accurate idea of bird population can be had. If such a census had been made ten or twenty years ago, it is probable that the 1916 figures would show a larger decline. The birds are the prnieipal defend ers or growing crops againts pest. But public sentiment has been slow to secure their protection. If a bird serves no visible purpose in the state where he spends part of his life, he is ruthlessly slaughtered for pot pie, re gardless of whether he is the salva tion of the crops In some other state, The migratory bird law giving uniform protection is yet to be passed on as to constitutionality by the United States supreme court. Bird life has many enemies. The ignorant, immigrant, regarding this as free country, joyously gets out with shotgun and slaughters a dozen or two songsters for a luscious dinner. Decadent natives kill them for ship ment to city hotels. The cats from cultured homes roam unrestrained through orchards and lawns, picking up the young who can't fly. It seems inconsistent to spend mil lions in teaching the farmer how to raise crops, and next to nothing on saving the birds that are the only sure protection of the crops after they are planted. Thus protection of bird life is inti mately related to cost of living. Food prices will be high as long as' swarms of insects devastate the fields. This argument should appeal to those who see such questions merely in" the light of dollars. But there are many for whom birds perform other services and to whom country life without their cheery songs would seem like a body minus soul. to Probably the most distressing and provalent disease to which Americans are heirs is catarrhal affections of th mucous membranes. According medical authorities the indoor worker Is more acceptable and is the worst sufferer from catarrhal conditions, which there are many kinds. Catarrh of the stomach and kidney fs one of tho most common causes dyspepsia and Bright's disease, and catarrhal conditions of the nose and throat often lead to deafness. Nine out of ten cases of desfness can be traced to catarrh, it Is said. Frequently the .lungs becomo af, fected by the extention of catarrhs Inflammation by way of the. bronchial tubes to the lung substance. The mental and physical state tne cntarrn suirers Is, Indeed, very unfortunate, and it is surprising know what an immense number people among those who reside In such cities as Lancaster, are suffering from this almost universal malady wb they believe something else Is the cause of their trouble. The symptoms of catarrh arc; of. fensive breath, constant sniffling, dis charge from tho nose, keadaches. full head, pains in the stomach, unsound digestion, loss of appetite, broken sleep, and a great liability to catching cold and sore throats. Tanlac, the fnmous reconstructive tonic, was designed to relieve just mese conditions, thousands or men and women have unhesitatingly ac knowledged the benefits they have derived through this Master Medicine Tanlac restores lost apr elite, re lieves sniffling, discharge from the nose, headaches, and stomach pains and will asjist in the assimilation o, ioou anu uring uacK round sleep, ac cording to thousands who have real ized the benefits of this wonderful preparation.

Save His Nerves. To glvo tho baby a qukt disposi tion, tho first step Is to keep him freo from nerves. Ono mother accounted for her baby's peaceful frame of mind by saying that until ho was throe months old he was Ignored! That seems absurd, yet there Is an element of truth In it. A baby Is an excitable little, being. It wants to play and be played with, and It means real self-do-Dial on the part of tho household to refrain from kissing and cuddling and romping with the baby.
