There are items in every household
on which too much money is spent.
The fact must be r’aced that if too
much is spent on clothing, for in

should be mo.st emphasized. Poor-

One must consider the problem of
whether it is wiser to pay rent or to
l.niiUl a home. In n large measure this
depends on local conditions as well aa
the size of the income.
Amusement and recreation are es
sential in family life. The child ami
the adult should have an allowance
for this, though tSlo total be very
small, averaging from 4 to 5 per cent
of the income of the family.
The wise spender plans the needs of
the family so that the amount spent
in the “miscellaneous” items will be
as small as possible. This item should
not be a “catch all” Ih home records.
Pamphlets Giving Outline Course May
Be Hsd by Writing War Loan
The War Lean OrganiKation of the
Fifth Federal Reserve District at Rich
mond, Va., has just issued an outline
of a cour.s9 of thrift for elementary
schools. It is designed ecpecially to
mp(*t the needs of teachers, hef^inning
with chapters for the smallest young-
ster~ and continuiifi: to those for pu
pils up to the eijrhth grads.
“Thrift in the Sch«>ols” 'contains
fascinating suggestions for the teach
ing of thrift to the little ones at the
"Mother Gocse” age. Then for the
■older children there are many other
ways at bringing the lesson home.
Ceography. hygiene. English reading,
budget making and problem# in arith
metic adapt themsalves to the teach
ing of thrift.
Besides tTiese items the pamphlet
contains supcgcsticns for momin.?
talks for all grades; tentative read
ing lists, with the names ’of the pub
lishers of books included; and, in each
chapter, a paragr?.ph on the practice
The si:mmary of the aihis of the
leaflet will probably gife the best idea
of the outline
1. To give the child a broad under-
itanding of th? Kpcci.lc f-jcts and
ttndertying principles cf thrift.
2. To train the child in the
of consen/ation and the wise use of
•all his resources.
3. To crep.te through the schools a
public sertiir.ent in favor of thrift and
ecanomy, and through this public sen-
titnent, to cultivate the national
Sxabit of ♦^hnft.

The following letter, written to the
mother of Pvt. Monroe Wilson by the
chaplian of his company, reachcd here
too late to be read at the funeral last
Dear Mrs. Wilson.
The sad news has been sent you
of the death of Pvt. Monroe Wilson,
and as Chaplian who visited him often
and was with him yesterday during
the severe illness that resulted in his
death, I want to send you this express
ion of sympathy.
I have visited Monroe regularly,
almost every day since he entered the
hospital, and have always found him
cheerful and hopeful. He expressed
to me his belief in our Christian faiti
and I know he was prepared for tha
journey to the far country. He wa^
always appreciative and it was a great
pleasure to wait upon him. Nurses,
doctors, anrf assistants were always
ready to serve him in any way, and
I assure you that no means were spar
ed to care for him or to restore him
There seems to be an added sadness
considering how near home Monroe
came. Yet we should be thankful
that he was spared some of the hor
rible tortures of war, and that he was
enabled to reach his native land again
and to see some of those whom ha
loved. Yesterday afternoon, just two
hours before his .severe attack came,
he spoke to me, expressing his hope
that he would soon be home with the
He has served as a loyal soldier
and fought his good fight. His re
cord is clean and he won out. May
God’s blessings be with you in this
trying hour, and the memory of this
noble boy, and faith in God's mercy
and love, comfort you at this trying
time. Your friend,

Garren’s Blood Purifier and Tonic
SOLD UNDER GUARANTEE OF SATISFACTION FOR THE VARIOUS AILMENTS
FOR WHICH IT IS RECOMMENDED, OR YOUR MONEY REFUNDED.
As a remedy for Indigestion and Stomach Troubles and Various Other Ailments Brought on byJ
an Impoverished and Impure State of the Blood.
It is purely a vegetable preparation, compounded of roots and herbs of the most approved medical value, gathered out
of the mountains of Western North Carolina where their curative properties are in the best state, and is carefully compounded
until the drug in each ingredient is fully extracted from the root or herb; hence in scrofula and scrofulos affections, blood
poison, skin diseases, such as pimples, blotches, boils sores and chronic ulcers, it is a wonderful curative agent. For gout
and rheumatism, neuralgia, sciatica, kidney troubles, pain in the back and bowels, it can be used with assurity of getting
better results than from any other blood medicine. It is mild and gentle in its action and does not shock the system like
strong i;iineral medicines that are commonly used. It is suited to all ages and conditions, and for the reason it is truly like a
family remedy. We have always been careful to advance no claims for our preparation that could not be substantiated
by live proof from those who have used it. The people in every walk of life voluntarily give their testimonies where they
have been' rescued from chronic state of ill health by the use of Garren’s Remedy. Such being its history it is a satisfaction
to the Garren Medicine Company to point to this record and state that, its restoring powers only wait a trial to return
to health the many thousands that are today dragging out a miserable existence. The testimonies we give in which the parties
testify they wer cured of indigstion, rheumatism, general debili ty and all blood troubles, were those who had tried many
other remedies and had been under treatment of the best physicians without getting any relief.
When the stomach is involved by a fullness after eating this remedy has no equal. In indigestion and dyspepsia it can be
taken with confidence that a healthy condition will soon be formed and eating will be a pleasure rather than a discomfort.
Constipation will soon yield to this remedy.
Garren’s Tonic contains the following: Sarsaparilla, May Apple, Yellow Dock, Yellow Parrilla, Pipsisewa, Wild Cherry,
Golden Seal, Yellow Root, Lady Slipper.
