This year the State adopts new books and you can exchange your old for new books. ; Five years ago there was much confusion on account of part of books being at one place and part at another. This year that trouble will be eliminated, as the state agents have given us the entire control and concentrated all the books at this store. ' Parents, teachers and pupils are invited to bring in their lists and old books for exchange, and in exchanging old or purchasing new books, we assure all our best efforts to serve carefully.
