O ttstem, of the r attsobed hereto B potthie report, of receipts and expenditures, we are of the opin ion that unless there is some cur tailment and retrenchment that at the close of this school year the General Fund will show a deficit of about $14,000.00. After discussion by the com mittee, there is but one way it would seem possible to close the regular school year with a smaller deficit, it would be to shorten the terms of all schools. This matter we all submit to the entire Board for consideration. Respectfully submitted, Signed- F. IB. Bateman, J. K. Johnson, G. W.

Youea Get Nothing Done PEPTO-MANGAN PURIFIES Tunae Up Youear Blood with It, Notice the Differaie with Rich Red Blood in Your Veins. The man or woman or the child with a sickly-looking complexion, a pale wan face, has blood that-is filled with poison. Instead of rich red blood coursing through their veins, they are trying to get along with blood that is weak and thin. It doesn't carry life giving qualities tbrough the body. You see those men and women eirery day. They are so tired. Their shoulders droop. They slouch. It is all they can do to get around. As soon as you begin to feel that way take Pepto Mangan, the well known blood tonic. It will clear away the poisons and make ygur blood rich with red corpus cles. Pepto Mansan is prepared in both liquid and tablet form. One has the same medicinal value as the other. Take either kind you prefer. Bat be sure you get the genuine PeptoMangan "GOde's".
