Raw or Inflamed Lungs Yield rapidly to the wonderful curative and healing qualities of Foley's Honey and Tar. It prevents pneumonia and consumption'from a hard cold settled on the lungs. L. VanWerden. The election of the staff of "The Nor mal Eyte," the magazine of the State Normal School, at Cedar Fall, Iowa, was held Tuesday, March 3. Don Campbell, of Pleasanton, was 'elected editor-in chief, Ethel Edwards, of Waterloo, local editor, and Eugene J. Fielding, of Ioma, business manager. These positions are worth several hundred dollars a year in cash to the incumbents, and to young people working their own way towards an education is a great help. While the money consideration is valuable in this way, there is another side to it that is of even more value, and that is the ex perience and business training acquired in performing the duties of those offices. This will be of great practical worth to them when they enter upon the stage of actual world affairs. Our townsman, Don Campbell, had al'so been chosen captain of Co. D, Noimal cadets, at the beginning of the school year, last Sep tember. Besides that, he was a little later made manager of track athletics tor 1903.—Pleasanton Index. Dangers of Pneumonia.
