Pound-Kincannon-Elkin Co. “THE BUSY DRUGGISTS” Tupelo, - - Mississippi AGED FARMER Made Strong and Well by Vinol This letter proves there is nothing equal to Vinol to create strength for weak, run-down conditions. Vestal Centre, N. Y.—“I am a far mer 74 years of age and got into a weak, run-down condition as a result of the Grippe. Our druggist suggested Vinol to build me up and I noticed an improvement soon after taking it, and it has restored my strength so I can now do a good day’s work. My wife has also taken Vinol for a run down condition with splendid results.” *—H. VV. Xesteb. St. Clair Drug Co., Tupelo. Also at the leading drug store in all Mississippi towns. Nettleton Public School NeM'eton, Oct. 1G —The wri ter believes that every school ought to hav^a set of permanent records. The fact that Nettle ton schools have a set explains how the figures were obtained for the preceding articles. Th"ce records were started in 1913, partial records wer^ available from 1912. The only benefit of such records is not to make just such reports as have been in this series, but the benefits are to the pupils and to the teachers. Tnese records show the attend ance, scholarship, department, age, grade a^d parent’s name Should a child lose its report card there are the records in the office irom which a duplicate may be made. Should a teacher lose her grade book during the session heriecords could be duplicated A child move aw y f'-om this community without a report it can get its record for four years back. A superintendent some times asks for a report of a child on entering school. A letter to the school from which he came will bring his record. After a pupil has graduated and is out looking for work, letters often come to the superintendent ask ing about the school record of a certain graduate. Should the present superintendent be unac quainted with this fellow, he 1 could refer to the permanent records and giye a summary of this record or a complete tran script. A new superintendent finds the duties of his office much lessened if, when he steps in, he can have a set of permanent records left over from the pre ceding session. It is a matter of business to have such records. It is justice to the child to keep them. It should be a community pride to have them. We all know the regret with which Amorv gave up her record in the fire last year—for she had an ideal set of records for 7 or 8 years. There fore. the writer considers the in stalling of permanent, records a decided advance in the system, and one step forward toward a more ideal, efficient system. U. D. C.
