S£9K TO THE SCHOOL PATRONS —• ■ ■ Do you realize how important the School Tea chers of the State are to you and your children? Do you appreciate the fact that the future wel fare of your children as coming citizens, charged with the responsibility of public affairs, rests largely with the Teachers ? Now, unless the salaries and general living conditions of the Teachers of the State are mat erially improved, and that very soon, we are go ing to lose great numbers of them—who are go ing to seek other lines of employment. This would greatly impair our entire school I system in the State. ^ It is, therefore, up to you as school patrons to behind the movement for the improvement of condition of the Teachers. Urge the Teachers to join the State Teachers Association and send in theiFdues of $1.00 to Prof. I H. L. McClesky, Hattiesburg, Miss, at once. They need a strong organization to look after i their welfare and press their claims for b W j i conditions. As many as can should attend the great State Teachers Convention at Jackson, from May 6-8,— I but whether or not they attend the convention,— j all Teachers should be affiliated with the State Teachers Association. ; ; I ; Urge them to act in the matter. 1 ; fly." -o LEST WE FORGET. 99 «4 Fly time is here.

Get it to-day from any medicine dealer; it is a powerful blood purifier. A vegetable tonic that benefits the stomach and blood making glands. Remember it is not a patent medicine for its ingredients are printed on the wrapper. It's a purely herbal extract made with out alcohol. Depend upon this grand rem edy to give you the kind of blood that makes the skin clear and puts ambition and energy into the entire body. You will not be dis appointed.
