Ralelgh^N. C, Dec. 13.?In a letter to
tho teachers of Forsyth county, the
Superintendent of Pilbllc Instruction,
Professor C. H. Mcbane, swats In a
rather lively fashion A. P. Davis, the
county superintendent of Forsyth.
Mr. Davis, who was the fusion coun?
ty examiner, under the old board, as?
sumed tho olllco again after the decis?
ion of the Supreme Court, lie attempts
to declare null the certlllcatcs Issued
by the school authorities acting under
the school law of 1S90, and for thl3 Pro?
fessor Mcbane called him clown. The
superintendent's letter is as follows:
"To the Teachers of Forsyth County
"Dear Teachers?I have received a
clipping from a paper published in your
county, in which Mr. A. P. Davis an?
nounces that he will hold an examina?
tion on December 15th, ana that he
stales: 'That wo will not endorse any
certificate, but all must take tho ex?
amination alike. Any teacher refusing
to comply with this will forfeit his or
her position, &c.' '
"1 wish to say to you that all teach?
ers who have stood the examination
under Mr. .Walter O. Cox, up to the
time of the decision of the Supreme
Court, and have received certlllcatcs
from said Cox In accordance with the
general school law of 1890, said cer?
tificates are good for one year from
tho date of their Issue.
"I have advised quite a number of
you frj-iri time to time since July the
1st that certificates Issued by Mr. Cox
in 'accordance with tho general school
law are good for oue year from the date
of their lsuc. and I meant what I said
then and mean It now.
"I propose to see thnt you are treat?
ed as ladles and gentlemen. It Is a
shame for any man or set of men to
try to drive teachers about like bo
many cattle.
"If Mr. Davis will not endorse your
vouchers, let him refuse to do so, but
I he Legislature, which meets in June,
can easily puss a special act and order
the county treasurer ,to pay you. We
olso have a remedy In the courts to
Compel an official to do Iiis duty.
"I write this us a matter of justice
to you and also In response to numer?
ous letters received from your county,
which 1 have not b^en able to answer,
on account of press of ufllelal and
other duties.
"Yours, very truly,
"C. H. MEBANE.

How few women know what it Is to
have a good night; a night of sound,
restful sleep. They smile aud say "good
night" in cheery tonc9, but when the
chamber door closes behind them, the
auiiling mask drop9 off, and shows the
liucs of suffering.
Other women have had the bad nights
changed to good by the use of Doctor
Picrce's Favorite Prescription. So may
you. Ninety-eight timc9 in every hun?
dred it perfectly cures diseases of the
delicate womanly organs. It builds up
the nervous system, puts flesh on the
body aud color on the check.
"Favorite Prescription," writes Mrs. C. N.
Anderson, of Rockbridge Bnllis, Kockbridge
Co., Va., "Is a God-seud to weak and sickly
women, restoring; health without subjecting
their nerves to the shock of an examination.
"I was all run flown in health?could not work
but a short while without rcstiug. Was so
nervous at times that I could not even write;
hnd a very poor appetite. I decided to write to
Dr. I'icrcc and state my case. T received fi favor
nlile reply, und commenced taking the ' Favorite
Prescription" anil 'Pellets.' Took six bottles
of' Favorite Prescription,' one of 'C.oUlen Mcdi
col Discovery' nnd one vial of ' Pellets.' I can
now work as well as I could before I was taken
sick. I think Dr. Pierce's medicines the best in
the world for sick and nervous women."
Doctor Picrce's Pleasant Pellets are
specially adapted to the use of delicate
women. Easy iotake, gentle in action.
