Why pay the Book concerns of this country a great big profit on school books. I am in favor of our children having them at actual costs.

After The Grippe “I am much pleased, to be able to write and thank you for what Cardui has done for me,” writes Mrs. Sarah J. Gilliland, of Siler City, N. C. ‘‘Last February, I had the Grippe, which left me in bad shape. Before that, 1 had been bothered with female trouble, for ten years, and nothing seemed to cure it. ‘‘At last, I began to take Cardui. I have taken only three bottles, but it has done me more good than all the doctors or than any other medicine 1 ever took.” mCARDUI J«a The Woman’s Tonic For the after-effects of any serious illness, like the Grip, Cardui is the best tonic you can use. It builds strength, steadies the nerves, improves the appetite, regulates irregularities and helps bring back the natural glow of health. Cardui is your best friend, if you only knew it. Think of the thousands of ladies whom Cardui has helped! What could possibly prevent it from helping you? Remember you cannot get the benefit of the Cardui ingredients in any other medicine, for they are not for sale in any drug store except in the Cardui bottle. Try Cardui.

Prescott, Arkansas WHY PRESCOTT SHOULD HAVE A NEW HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING Prescott is a thriving little city situated on the Iron Moun tain and Southern Railroad, in the southwestern portion of Arkansas. This town is noted for a fine school, but it would be better thought of and more noted if it possessed a large High School building. This city has no separate High School building, but it carries on High school work in the public school building. If Prescott’s neighboring city Hope can have a High School building, why can’t Prescott have one too? E /erybody knows Prescott has enough wealth to build and t quip a High School building. There are no reasons why Prescott should not have a separate High school building, but there are many reasons why the town should have a new separate High school building. First: There is not room enough in the building that stands in the town at the present time to conduct three depart ments of school work. Second: If Prescott had a separate High School building it would help the boys and girls of ; the town and out on rural districts to secure a better High ! School education. Third: It would give many 1 young people who live in Pres ! cott. the opportunity to spend i their youth at home, instead of going away to school. Fourth: It would give the boys and girls of Prescott many more conveniences to train them selves in original expression. They could obtain more literary work and have much better mciely if they had more room. The room the high school stu dents have now is not suffeient o conduct literary work. Why? decause it is not large enough. Fifth: If Prescott had a new’ High School building it would jive the boys a chance to learn nanual training, and the girls lomestic science. All young jeople should be taught some :hing ab&uc these useful arts. Sixth: It would build up the .own. Seventh: It would help in •re;ise t^S population. No sensible man who has children vill settle in a place where there ire r.o good schools. Eighth: It would increase the alue of property in Prescott ■noogh to pay for the building. If there is anything that sta ns a town with a superior •haracter it is a good school. Tne young generation of people ire trying to prepare themselves 'or future usefulness, and if invthing wTill help them it is a rood education. Nearly all jarts of the world have become ivilized. All races of people live trying to obtain knowledge, and how can they secure infer nation on different things with >ut a place of instruction? If all he tax payers in and around Prescott will pull for a nice High School building, it will soon be »rected and your children will iso up and call you blessed. Ed McCain. ARTESIAN Last week we fell in the .vaste basket, but here we are igain. Brother Baggerly preached at :his place last Sunday. Claud Harris was in our midst Saturday, advertising and paint ing signs. Squire Leverett found a for tune last Sunday near Bolivar. It was a five cent Nickle. We wonder why Robt. Tharp does not go to see Miss M— and I quit looking so shy.

We wish to thank the public for the patronage given us at the Opera House last Friday night when wo gave our concert. As the concert was for the benefit of our organ fund, we hope there is no one who regiets having given us fifteen cents. V\ < ; tried to entertain you as best we could, although we had given; ourselves only two weeks real practice. Our principal seem to j be so afraid that we will lose some time from our studies till we did not have time to add any more to our program. However, we have received a great many compliments from the public,and we return the compliment by saying that we thank you for the neat little sum of twenty dollars clear of all expenses, which goes to pay on our organ We are not the least uneasy about paying for it before the present term of school closes, We want to say to the patrons of the colored school that you are doing that boy and girl of yours, who you dearly love, a great injustice when vou keep them from school. We have a good school, and were our pai ents to visit the school to see what the teachers are doing,just as our principal insists on them (our parents) to do, it would be better for all concerned. We have had several white persons, both ladies and gentlemen, to visit our school during this term, and each one gave us much encouragement, besides much needed advice and instruction. We are being taught to appreci ate whatever is done for us, and we regret very much that some parents will continue to rob their children of all that the state has provided for them. Again, we thank you for your patronage, and sorry that we didn’t have more of our white friends out to see what we can do. We will say that unless our white friends make closer observations of us they will never know what we are doing. We cordially invite you to our school and to our public entertainments at any and all times. 7th, 8th, and 9th grade pupils. FOR COTTON WEIGHER We are puthorized to announce J. G.

II. G. Friedheirn, REGISTER. The Best Fertilizers for Com That the yield of corn from the average farm can l e j. creased by intelligent and liberal fertilization has been i ipeated’* demonstrated. Large crops of good corn result from prepar . land well, using the right kind and quantity of fertilizer, g&0d seed and proper cultivation. Virginia-Carolina Fertilizers will greatly “increase your yield per acre" of corn or any other crop In some cases remarkable results have been obtained. K' Mr. C. W. Caruthers of Sumpter County, Fla., writes: “Words cannot express the value of your fertiliser. It is really so far ahead of other companies’ goods, that it would not pay anyone to use other brands, were they given free and put in the field. 1 can prove what I say to be a fact 1 made a test on five acres. I used on one half the land your fertilizer and on the other half another company’s fertik izer, same grade; the land received the same cultivation every time. / kept a correct account of the amount of money 1 got off each half and T got more from the land on 'which I used Virginia Carolina fertilizer than I did off the other half. I got four times as much corn from the land on which / used your fertilizer."
