seems tbe most paramount on his mind
at tbis crisis is pertaining to our pub

come when a boy or girl is turned

opportunities and .riVileges that have

that tbey have grasped, while they

excuse now to grow up in ignorance
as tbe big-bearted men of our great
ttate have looked over tbe great fields
stocked with the poor of our land, and
considered their poverty and tbeir
meager opportunities to acquire tbe
knowledge that they were entitled to.

successful plans to bring us u p out of

I say it is a burning shame to see tbe
great masses of the people of this

careless about such an important mat

state enacts laws for the purpose of

duty iu tbe way of encouraging your
children at home you need not expect
them to succeed. It leaves tbe teach

foundation, and then the teachers will
have something steadfast to build up
on. Notice obildren who succeed and
you will find children that have had
the proper training at home. First,
start your children right and then it
will be but little trouble to keep it
right, and bring tbe child np in tbe
way it should go.
On tbe other hand, see a child that
is unruly, disobedient and contrary in

and yon will soon find the cause. Pa

"I want to tell you what wonderful benefit I have re
ceived from the use of Thedford's Black-Draught," writes
Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky.
"It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds,
liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe Black-Draught
saved my little girl's life. When she had the measles,
they went in on her, but one good dose of Thedford's
Black-Draught made them break out, and she has had no
more trouble. I shall never be without
in my home." For constipation, indigestion, headache, dizzi
ness, malaria,' chills and fever, biliousness, and all similar
ailments, Thedford's Black-Draught has proved itself a safe,
reliable, gentle and valuable remedy.

years of splendid success proves its value. Good for
