DAVIS, 604 Glass St. ' . - ' . SAVED LIFE Memphis, Tenn. "Ever since 1 was quite a young woman I have used Dr. Pierce's remedies both for myself and children. I was especially helped by the 'Favorite Prescription' during the trying months of expectancy. It not only toned up my system and kept me in perfect con dition but I had comparatively no suffering. Then at the critical time of life I took the 'Prescription' again and had none of the misery that most women endure at that period, but came thru in splendid health. "I had one experience with Dr. Pieroe's Golden Medical Discovery that I never shall forget. When my oldest boy was two years of age he had such a cold on the Iuirs that the doctors said he couldn't possibly live to I stopped the doctors' medicine and just gave him small doses of the 'Golden Medical Discovery' and in a short time he was perfectly well. He is now forty years of age and has never had pneumonia nor any other lung weakness since that time but has been, and is still, strong and robust. I know the 'Golden Medical Discovery' saved his life. "I must not forget to mention Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets for I have found them to be all that could be desired as a laxative. Every member of my family has taken them. "Medicines such as Dr. Pieroe's are a blessing to mankind, and it is a pleasure for me to recommend them." MRS. MAR GARET BOONE, R. 1W. Box 387.

C. H. S. and the Normal sextette. The game was fast throughout, each team struggling for victory. The game en ded in a tie but it was quickly decided to play the tie off. - Then the real bat tle began. The ball was shot tothe forwards on both sides time and time again, only to be hurled back by the opposing guards. ' This struggle con tinued for about ten minutes, until the Normal succeeded in caging the final goal which woo the game for them by two points, making the final score 1G to 14. The U. C. H. S. girls -are to be complimented on holding the Normal team to this score. Our centers, Kathleen Burdick and Bern ice Flack, played a remarkable game against overwhelming odds, the Normal centers being so much taller, could easily tip the ball to her for wards, but their swift passing was stopped time and again by one of our centers. Louise Peery, altho her guard was twice her size, shot several goals and Edna Wilbanks played her usual fast game of ball scoring two field goals in 30 seconds. - The playing for the guards never ceased and often when a goal seemed inevitable the Normal forwards were thwarted by some swift play by Nell Dabnke or The! ma Jordan. Nell Dabnke played her best game and her passing was especially brilliant. The etar player of the Normal team was blocked on every side by our in vincible little guard. At the last of the game it was aim jal a pitch battle be tween .these twO players. - Another game is to be played here in the local gym. with the Normal, Fri day night, March 19. If U. C. H. S. wins this game, the third game, which will decide the championship, will be played on some neutral court, proba bly at Martin. Everybody be prepared to help our team keep- the champion ship.
