PUBLIC SCHOOL PROGRESS
The publice school statistics
for the year ending June 30,
1910, which are now being com
piled by State Superintendent:
Cook, show the average length
of school term for the year to be
106.5 days for the entire state,
with an average daily attendance
of 255,135. The year before the
length of tern was 98.2 days,
with the daily attendance 243,
232. The increase of actual
schooling for the year, over that
of the year before is equal to
giving to 2,608 children the full
common school course ot seven
years with nine months school
each year. Or, the net gain is
equal to common school educa
tion of 4,408 children, based on
the present length of school
term in Arkanaas.

Mr. Wm. Brooks, Prop.,
Brooks .Med. Co., Russellville, Ark.
My Dear Sir: For several weeks I
have been intending to write you in re
gard to your Baby Balm.
If you remember, when yon were
here this summer I told you that our
baby was sick. He was then having
his third attack of bowel trouble this
summer. They were very severe.
The first two were exceedingly alarm
ing and I suggested to my wife txat
we try your remedy, but she was pre
judiced against patent medicine, so
was 1, but 1 knowing vou, gave me
confidence to some extent, (pardon the
In the last case however my wife
agreed to try your Baby Balm. I
went to my doctor and told him that I
wanted to try it. He said that he did
not know what it contained but to
give it a trial. We d(d, and it worked
like a charm. Now my wife will not
be without it and the baby has not had
a bad case with his bowels since we
began using it.
You know how parents are about the
baby. We watch him and if any
trouble is indicated Brooks Baby
Bowel Balm is put into service prompt
ly and it has not failed to keep him
straight so far.
1 have been at the drug store here
on different occasions when parties
come in for baby medicine and I just
can’t (and don’t try) to keep from
‘‘buttin in” ar.d telling them to get1
your Baby Balm. Just night before j
last a man came into the drug store '
here to get bady medicine. My wife
says “tell him to get Baby Balm,”
but he had already learned its worth
and that was what he was aften
You yourself know that 1 have al
ways found objection to the publishing
of patent medicine advertising in my
paper and I never thought l would be
a person to write a recommendation
for a patent medici :e, but I could,
hardly resist in this casa, since feeling
the great benefits received from your
Very respectfully yours,
W. E. Baker.

you except wondering why this wagonyard had not
been put up years ago.
