I have found Dr. Moffett's Teeth-

we would inevitably lose him. I
happened upon Teethina and began
at once administering it to him, and
his improvement was marked in 24
hours, and from that day on he re
cuperated. I have constantly kept
it and used it since with my children
and have taken great pleasure in
sounding its praise to all mothers of
young children. I founu it valuable

advanced age, eighty-one years, and
the unfortunate accident with which
he met about eighteen months ago,
having his left leg broken by a
falling tree, he is still active and

Editor Bulletin:
If Bolivar could be made a school
center, then her future prosperity
would be assured, so say her best
friends. She now has a flourishing
boarding and day school for girls,
an up-to-date public school, both as
to building and attendance, and last
year a new enterprise was put on
foot and a long felt want filled iu
the openiug of a kindergarten by
Miss Neely, which proved a success
in every respect. Miss .Neely has
the happy faculty of reaching child
ren, combined with all the teaching
qualities that go to make a success
ful teacher. She is fully equipped
as to all things necessary for thor
ough instruction iu kindergarten
methods, and parents having little
tots from five to nine years would
do well to patronize her. In olden
times, it was considered essential to
make school as disagreeable as pos
sible to the pupils. Such was not
the idea of Friedrich Froebel, the
founder of kindergartens, who by
close study and observation found
that methods by which the powers
and insiincts of a child may be more
fully understood, was the natural
way in which to lead the young
minds. A true kindergarten has a
three-fold mission the develop
ment of mind, body and soul, which
by means of music and games as
well as instruction in the rudiments
of the three R's is most happily ac
complished. All future school
work is much more easily and quick
ly grasped, and better results ob
tained after a good foundation has
been laid in the kindergarten. Such
it is believed Miss Neely is giving,
hence 6he deserves a liberal patron-
age. a i eiend.

up the subject of his address, "The
Symmetrical Development of Char

guage he 6trove to impress upon
the minds of his youthful hearers
the fact that perfect character, like
every other perfect thing in God's
universe, is a growth, a proportion
ate growth of all the faculties not
the growth of h few years only, but
of a life time, finished only when
life itself is finished. A charm was
added to the address by the thor
ough sympathy the speaker has with
the hearts of the young. The dis
course showed much thought and in
every detail was admirably suited
to the occasion.

After prayer by Rev. C. S. Ware
the pupils went to their class rooms
and the work of the thirtieth year
of St. Katharine's was "on."
The visitors from abroad were
Mrs. B. F. McFarland, New Or-

That music hth charms for Boli

Miss Mary Ingram supplied the

ex-pupil this young lady, who rose
to the difficult occasion at a mo

success of Friday evening adds oue
more feather to her already well
decorated cap.
An unexpected treat were the rec

Her selections gave scope for num

was fascinating. The strong per
sonality and bewitching appearance
of this young lady, added to the
"catchiness" of her selections, took
her audience by storm, and regrets
were expressed on all sides when
she left the stage.
