Parent Teacher's Association
Tho Parent Teacher's Assoc?
iation will meet at 3:30 p. m.f
Weduesday (today. We are all
busy parents especially at this
time, but certainly we can
spend nu lime for a better pur?
pose thau to discuss the welfare
of-our children- with those to
whom we intrust them the
greater part of the day.
With conditions at the school,
crowded as they uro, it is im
possible for tho teachers to visit
nil the homes of their children,
so can't we make the effort for
at least nne hour ouch month
to visit them und discuss with
them tho problems that con?
front us as a community which
are vital ones to our children.
The proper school spirit can?
not exist without the co-opera?
tion of the homo. It is our
children who suffer for our
negligence in these matters.
The inspiration and encourage?
ment that comes to the teacher
when she has the opportunity
of conversing with the mothers
of her children who are intrust?
ed in their moral and spiritual
development as well us mental,
is reward enough surely for tho
effort made. The teachers are
anxious to co-operate and will?
ingly give their time to uttond
the meetings and it should be
considered a privilege to meet
at those times to strengthen our
hopes and ideals for our chil?
dren

CALOMEL SALIVATES
AND MAKES YOU SICK
Acts Like Dynamite on a
Sluggish Liver and You
Lose a Day's Work
There's no reason why a per?
son should take sickening, sali?
va! ing calomel when all cents
buys a large bottle of Hudson's
Liver Tone?a perfect substi?
tute for calomel.
It is a pleasant, vegetable
liquid which will start your
liver just us surely us calomel,
but it doesn't make you sick
and can not salivate.
Children and grown folks can
take Dodsou's Liver Tone be?
cause it is perfectly harmless.
Calomel is a dangerous drug.
It is mercury and uttacks your
bones. Take a dose of nasty
calomel today und you will feel
weak, sick and nauseated to
morrow. Don't lose a day's
work. Take a spoonful of
Dodsou's Liver Tone instead
and you will wake up feeling
great. No more biliousness,
coustiputinn, .sluggishness,
headache, coated tongue or
sour stomach. Your druggist
says if you don't find Dodsou's
Liver Tone acts bettor than
horrible calomel your money is
waiting for you.?adv.
