The writer had the pleasure of vis

March the 21. will say that they have
an up-to-date Sunday school in every
respect. I noticed they have the very
best teachers they were able to secure
and as far as I could see and how they
were up to their business. What at
tract cd my attention was when the
superintendent, Mr. Hugh Parks, Jr.,
came and escorted me through the dif
ferent departments of the Sundav
school, was the attention the small
tots were giving and the earnestness
the teacher was showing with those
little fellows. They have 5 or 6 de
partment in the school of very small
children. There were 5 other classes
in the gallery and 3 large clasess in
the main part of the church all work
ing and all interested in this work.
This school is so interested in work
that a stranger doesn't bother ttieni
one minute. The school numbered
1!)4 on that day. Just think all of
our towns could have just as good as
that one if our leading men and busi
ness men would come shoulder to
shoulder like they do. The secretary
treasurer, superintendent of botn
mills, and the overseers all the mer
chants and all of the very best peo-
hle working together for one cause
and that to enlighten their own mmas
and not their only but the minds of
those with whom they come in con
tact day bv day. May God wonder
fully bless him and his great work
and may many of those precious chil
dren rise up and call him blessed.

EVER SALIVATED BY CALOMEL?
Calomel is Quicksilveer and Acts Like
Dynamite on Your Liver.
Calomel loses you a day! You know
what calomel is. It's mercury, quick
silver. Calomel is dangerous. It
crashes into sour bile like dynamite,
cramping and sickening you. Calomel
attacks the bones and should never be
put into your system.
When you feel bilious, sluggish, con
stipated and all knocked out and be
lieve you need a dose of dangerous
calomel, just remember that your
druggist sells for 50 cents a large bot
tle of Dodson's Liver Tone, which is
entirely vegetable and pleasant to
take and is a perfect substitute for
calomel. It is guaranteed to start
your liver without stirring you up in
side, and cannot salivate.
Don't take calomel! It makes you
sick the next day; it loses you a day s
work. Dodson's Liver Tone straight
ens you right tip and you fel great.
Give it to the children because it
perfectly harmless and doesn't gripe.
