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

of U.
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.

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

schools and country schools having
comparatively long terms, tne actual
amount paid for the education of the
large number of children whose school
ing is confined to the elementary
grades of the city schools and of the
short-term country schools must be
pitifully small.
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?

Burlington, Vt " I suffered with female trouble, and had a number of
doctors who said that I would never be any better until I had an operation.
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. I keep house and do my work
and have a Bmall child. I have recommended Vegetable Compound to a num
ber of my friends and you may publish my testimonial." Mrs. H.R. Sharon.
Apple Tree Point Farm, Burlington, Vt
. 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.
In fact, many letters have been received from women who have been restored
to health by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound after operations have
been advised by attending physicians.
