, The treasury of a county In this State
has made a charge of t per cent eotamla
on $30,000 of reoelpu of school fond for
1899-1900 and or I per cent oa the Bute
appropriation for 1900-1901 to public
schools. Be was allowed this by the
oonnty board, under the advice of the
county attorney. The Bute Superintend
ent of public Instruction disallowed
these commissions. . The county board
refused to demand of the treasurer to re
fund them. The matter has gone to the
attorney general, who fully auttalns the
ruling of the State Superintendent.
It Is said here today that President

appointed to succeed Douglas.-1 It Is said
the State executive committee would' so
:, recommend and that the appointment
would be until the next general elec
tion. The Governor pardons Montfort
Green, of dates county, convicted of
larct ny and M-nlenced 'to one year In

"Since the decision of the Supreme
Court in the case of Hookn. et al. vs.
Town of Greenville, tome confusion
aeems to have arisen In regard to the
distribution of the school fund. , In re
sponse to numerous Inquiries from coun
' ty superintendent, membeas of Boards
of Education and others, I have deemed
It necessary to send out this letter of In
struction, In the case referred to above,
the question of the distribution of the
school fund was not directly at Issue,
therefore, what the court says upon that
subject Is what the lawyers call a dictum
Instead of a decision. , Section 24 of the
Public School law of N. C, directs the
County Boards of Education to appor
tion the school fund of the county to the
'various townships per capita. It further
directs them to distribute and apportion
the school money to each townahlp so as
. to givo to each school In said townahlp,
' for each rnoc the same length of school
term, as nearly aa may, be, , each year,
' and to'propar regard for the grade
of mora to be done and the qualifica
tions f the teachers required "In each
school for each race, and fix the maxi
mum salary for each school In the conn-
try. This law having been legally en
acted by tbe , Lrglslat ore, must be as
sumed to be constitutional until it la ex-
' preesly decldt'd to be unconstitutional,' I
can not think that what appears to be a
dictum of tbe Supreme Court upon j a
question not directly at Issue, In a case
rinvolvlag fthe ' constitutionality of j a
special act of the Legislature, applicable
only o a ' particular locality, can be
' n nderxtood, or was Intended by the court
to br understood, as setting aside Sec
tion 21 of the General School Law Of the
State, aad radically Changing the entire
method of distribution of the school
. fund. Therefore, 1 feel It my duty to In
struct County Boards of Education to
continue to apportion the school fund at
directed by the Public School Law of
North Carolina." ' f - .'

ascribe the increase In the number of

One of my lodge friends who called when

called Peruna. I bad no faith in it, but
my husband purchased me a bottle, and
asked me to try It. It brought me most
satisfactory results. I used three bottles
before I vu completely cured, bat I
have bad good cause to be grateful, for
not only did my kidney trouble dis
appear, but my general health improved
and I have been in good health ever
since. I would not bo without it for ten
