f You Keel a Medicine Three More Names in the Hall of Fame You Should Have ttis Best Mutate Have you ever stopped to reason 'why It is that so many products that are ex tensively advertised, all at once drop out of sight and are soon forgotten? The reason is plain the article did not fulfill the promises of the manufacturer. This applies more particularly to a medicine. A medicinal preparation that has real curative value almost sells itself, as like an endless chain system the remedy is recommended by those who have been benefited, to those who are in need of it. A prominent druggist says "Take for example Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, preparation I have sold for many years and never hesitate to recommend, for in almost every case it shows excellent re sults, as many of my customers testify. No other kidney remedy has so large a ale." According to sworn statements and verified testimony of thousands who have used the preparation, the success of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is due to the fact, so many people claim, that it fulfills al most every wish in overcoming kidney, liver and bladder ailments: corrects uri nary troubles and neutralizes the urio acid which causes rheumatism. You may receive a sample bottle of Swamp-Root by Parcels Post. Address Dr. Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y., and enclose ten cents; also mention this paper.

Commissioner of Education Gives Figures of Expenditures in This Country. AVERAGE IS $515 FOR PUPIL Counting Children of Kindergarten Age There Are More Than Thirty Million Children of School Age in the United States. By P. P. CLAXTON. (United States Commissioner of Educa tion.) Considered alone, expenditures for public education In the United States may seem large. Figures and com parisons recently published In many newspapers show how small they are when compared with expenditures for other purposes, public and private. These expenditures are also small In comparison with the number of chil dren to be educated. We forget how numerous a people we have come to be. In thinking of hundreds of mil lions of dollars for public schools, we forget that there are tens of millions of bovs and girls to be educated. Keenly conscious of the size of the dividend, we forget the size of the divisor. We forget that there are in the United States more than twen ty-seven million boys and girls between the ages of six and nineteen that Is. between the age at which children In most states enter school and the age of those who graduate from the high school having gone through the grades of the elementary school with out the loss of more than one year. If children of kindergarten age are counted in there are more than thirty millions. The Cost. Just how much do we pay for the education of these children? The first of three tables giving de tails show how much was spent on an average in the public schools of each of the states for the education of each child of the generation of children entering school in the fall of 1905 and reaching the normal age of high school graduation In 1918. The figures given in each case show as nearly as can be computed from re ports made to the United States bu reau of education Just how much has been spent to make all the difference between total Illiteracy and the lack of all school training of this genera tion of boys and girls and that which they did get in the public elementary and high schools. May it therefore fairly be taken as the measure of the value of such education in the mlndt. of the people? It should be remen- To Bomb Former Members of the bombing crew from - r away Beach, who will take part in the destruction of the former German bat tleships Ostfrledland and Frankfort at Hampton Roads, Va., shortly. CAT LIVES 25 DAYS IN HOLE Paris Feline Recovers Quickly on Get ting Milk and Washes Its Whiskers. Paris. How long can a cat live In a dark hole without food? The answer Is 25 days, according to accounts In the Paris press of a cat's adventure. Twenty-five days ago a mason mend ing a rainpipe system on the Church of St. Ambrose closed up a pipe which York University du ring the unveiling photograph of Doctor Brown, chancellor Cost S. Schools bered that these figures Include not only the cost of Instruction, but also expenditures for buildings, grounds, equipment, repairs, fuel and all inci dentals, including in many cities and states books and supplies. . . The range is from $63 per individ ual person in Alabama and Mississippi to $637 in Montana, the Montana rate being almost exactly ten times that of Alabama and Mississippi. The Ill inois range is $539. The average for the United States is only $252. , Comparisons. In a country in which " we blithely acknowledge that all things wait on education the public health, material prosperity and wealth, social purity, civic righteousness, political wisdom, the strength and safety of state and nation, and, finally, the thing for which all these exist that is, the individual welfare and happiness of the people. we have recklessly ("recklessly Is probably the word) spent $252 per child that the attainment of all these things may be assured. Since less than 70 per cent of all the money ex pended for public schools goes for In struction, only $175 of the $252 was paid for actual Instruction. We fre quently have complaints that the In struction and training of the boys and girls who leave the schools is not as extensive and thorough as it should be. What should we expect for $175? For the generation of boys and girls reaching the age of high school graduation- in 1906 the average per capita was $140. For the elementary and secondary education of the million of men and women in the United' States now between the ages of twenty-one and thirty-five the average paid was $200. An Average. The second table shows what would be spent on the average for the edu cation of each child of those (some thing more than two and a quarter millions) who reached the school age of six years In 1918 if the average ex penditures for that year were to be continued until 1931 when these boys and girls will have reached the nor mal age of graduation from the high school. In only one state would the amount be less than $100, and the av erage for the United States would be $359. The figures for Montana ($1274) are no doubt too large, the number of children of school age In that state In 1918 being larger than the number calculated on this basis of the esti mates of the total population made by the bureau of census. The same is probably true, but in a smaller de gree, for California ($540). Illinois' average in this table is the same as in the first, $539. The third table shows how much German Warships the U.

The range would be from $111 in Mississippi to $1,274 in Mon - tana, again somewhat too high, and the average for the United States would be $440. Illinois, In this third lou,e' ,s f ut uown at Grand Average Is $515.

Does It Pay? As a matter of Investment and busi ness economy, alone, the thoughtful man will ask: Does it pay to spend an average of $515 on the education of the children of the nation, or would It be better to save this money, close all our public schools, and let the next generation of men and women depend wholly on their unspoiled and unimproved native ability? Is It prob able Luat on the average these men and women will because of the education which they receive frdm the schools and colleges, universities, technical and professional schools, produce $512 more during their lives than they would If nothing were spent on their education?

I was so bad I could hardly walk across the floor and could not do a thing. My sister-in-law induced me to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and it certainly has helped me wonderfully.

In hospitals are many women who are there for surgical operations, and ther is nothing a woman dreads more than the thought of an operation, and th long weary months of recovery and restoration to strength if it is successful. " It is very true that female troubles may through neglect reach a stags where an operation is the only resource, but most of the commoner ailments of women are not the surgical ones : they are not caused by serious displace ments, tumors or growths, although the symptoms may appear the same. When disturbing ailments first appear take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound to relieve the present distress and prevent more serious troubles.
