Gonzalez. Dec. 20. One of the great
est assets of West. Florida, and. Es
cambia county in particular is the
Smith Hughes agricultural school at
Gonzalez. The first semister of the
1919-20 session closed Friday with
everv one delighted with the excellent
work done by the faculty and the
progress of the sludent body.
This session has several new fea
tures, namely, vocal . music taught by
Mrs. Benn, of JPensacola and instru
mental music by Mrs. Jackson of Pen
sacola. Latin and Spanish have been
added to the high school department.
Another worth while feature is athlet
ics in varying forms to include the
whole school. A number of valuable
instruments have been added to the ag
ricultural department so that the
science of agronomy can be taught in
a practical way.
The principal, professor Samuel A. u.
Wilkinson is a graduate of the State
university of Florida, and a specialist
in agriculture. He is the right man
in the right place. The faculty as a
whole cannot be excelled. The work of
landscape gardening is to be taken up
in earnest after the holidays. A large
number of Satsuma oranges, pecan
Japanese persimmons as well as much
ornamental shrubbery will be set out
on the campus.
The School Improvement association,
in which the faculty takes a deep in
terest is doing splendid work in pro
viding money for necessary improve
ments. The enrollment of 214 students would
be greatly increased if transportation,
or housing, or board could be ar
ranged for. The greatest need, of the
school now Is a large dormitoy. Th9.
it is hoped, will corne within the next
year. .. L .
Co-operation with the principal and
faculty will make the Gonzalez school
ultimately the be3t in West Florida.
"I am 65 years old and have lived
In Pensacola all my life. Every one
knows that I've never been given to
praising anything or anybody, who did
not deserve it, and thatit just why I
am giving my praise to Dreco, it
thoroughly deserves every good word
that can be said about it", declared
Mr. J. W. Balkum. of 310 N. A-st. Mr.
Balkum has been wth the Warren Fish f
Co. for the past eleven years, and is !
highly thought of by them. j
"Some years ago I had catarrh very j
bad, and I think the drippings got into j
my stomach, and caused it to get In-j
flamed, for I suffered very much from ;
pains in my abdomen, gas, bloating, for '
passing mucus. Even though I was
very careful of my diet, I didn't seem
to get along very well, and I believe
t spent a thousand dollars on differ--ent
medicines. . j
"My work is pretty hard, and every
night I would suffer from severe pains
in my legs, and my back ached al-!
most constantly. The relief I've got-!
ten by taking Dreco is remarkable.!
This medicine seemed to go right to
the bottom of my troubles, and gave
me . almost instant relief. The gas j
stopped forming in my stomach, pains '
left my back and limbs, appetite im-j
proved; sleep became restful, and myj
stomach is in better condition than ;
it has been for years. I expect to i
take a couple more bottles and believe
that I will be entirely cured then."
The old-fashioned remedies, made!
from roots and herbs, are the best for
any one to take. Dreco is made from j
twelve different roots, herbs, barks ;
and berries. These act on the stom- J
ach, bowels, kidneys and purify the
blood. Dreco knocks rheumatism out j
shortly ; relieves catarrh of the head t"
and stomach; makes you sleep sound-'.
ly and creates a good appetite. As a
blood purifier nothing can eaual
J Dreco. It puts a stop to boils, ecze
ma and other blood affections. ,
Dreco Is now sold by all up-to-date
druggists throughout the country, and
is highly recommended in Pensacola
by Balkcom Drug Co. Adv.
