Having an enrollment of over 60, the teachers have en joyed every minute with the eager, expectant children. Mrs. Heide, Mrs. Schroeder, Mrs. Gibson and Mrs. Hanson have been teaching the Bible classes with chil dren over six years of age. Misses Lanie Weigelt, Mildred Fish and Myrtle Sites have taken charge of the smaller children in their Bible story and sand table work. Rev. Gibson of the Baptist church, assisted by MAs. Heide and Mrs. Schroeder, brought about a marked improvement in the children's sing ing, and acquaintance with some of the best of our Christian hymns. The children have done well in memorizing scripture and hymns. The craft work of the school was quite different from what they ex pect to use another year. This year a lecture course was used based on the boy scout hand book and other practical helps. Another year with more equipment, it is hoped that ac tual craft work may be accomplished, such as radio experimentation, wood craft, fancy sewing and both cord and raffia weaving. The session closed Friday, June 16, with a "picnic-review." At 11 a review of the work covered was, as far as possible, made by the children and their teachers. Immediately following the parents and friends of the -children of the D. V. B. S. had a picnic dinner and an all around jolly good time. Russell F. Pederson of the Presby terian church, believes that more has been accomplished than can be rea lized at this time. He hopes that Kettle Falls may have a better school next summer. * As superin tendent, he found every person in the community willing to do every thing he or she could to make the new departure in religrioun education a success. l j | y ljninjf .

MOORE'S MOMMOTH RHEUMATIC REMEDY Something New and Different Mr. C. H. Moore of Northport, Washington, has for a number of years been working upon a remedy for rheumatism and has finally per fected a cure that has been startling ly successful. Not wishing to offer the general public an untried remedy, he has for the past year, quietly among his friends and acquaintances, tried this remarkable cure with results that have surprised even the most san guine believers in this i-emedy. There is no test of a remedy equal to its use by people where it is man ufactured, as it is a well known char acteristic of humanity to place more confidence in some remedy that is produced in some distant and un known place than in a remedy pro duced at home. The fact that people of good stand ing in his home town have been cured of rheumatism by this remedy and are not only willing to recommend it to others but also have made sworn . affidavits before the U. S. Court Com missioner as to the benefits derived from its use is sufficient evidence as to its merits. Mr. Moore has incorporated the Mammoth Remedy Company, which company is manufacturing this rem edy and is offering it to the public with a guarantee to refund the money paid for it to any one not benefited by its use. The following is a sample of the many affidavits on file in the office 6f the Company: "Northport, Washington, November 16, 1921.—1, James Jennings, hereby solemnly swear that I suffered from rheumatism in my arm, shoulder and legs so bad that I could not sleep at night, as the pain was so severe. Mr. Sells, a neighbor, presented us with a small bottle of Moore's Mammoth Rheumatism Remedy and after apply ing it two or three times the pain dis appeared. I have not felt it since. I honestly believe it to be a groat remedy and will strongly recommend it to all suffering humanity. I have resided in Northport about one year. (Signed) James Jennings. Witness, H. P. Grove. "Subscribed and sworn to before me at my office in Northport, Washing ton, this 16th day of November, 1921. —William P. Hughes, United States Commissioner, Eastern District of Washington. (Seal)" It is a painless external remedy, price $2.00 per bottle postage paid to any part of the United States. MAMMOTH REMEDY COMPANY Novthport, Washington EYESIGHT SPECIALIST Dr. M. Forrest Burgess of Spokane will be at the Hotel Colville, at Col ville, on June 23 and 24. If your eyes smart, water, burn, intolerance of Mi-Ill; you need glasses.
