"I think Cardui is a wonder
ful medicine, far I improved
j greatly after taking »t," e^ye
Mrs. A. VV. English, of R. F. D.
4, Roanoke, Va. "When I was
just a girl of 13, my mother
gave this medicine to me, and
it did me a great deal of good.
I waa weak and run-down.
After I had taken Cardui
awhile, I felt much better.
"In 1924, my health was poor.
I felt miserable, and hadn't
enough at.eogth to do my
housework. It took all my
willpower to keep up. I was
pale and weak.
"I got Cardui again and
took it My improvement was
wonderful I can recommend
Cardui to others, for my
health was so much better
after I had taken a course of
the Cardui Home Treatment”

Russia except rainbows and republi

busted our banks. Somebody is tell

Hoover spent $6,788..9!)9.00 to kill,
and then let both of ’em get away.
...Wonder tf Russia had anything
to do with that Wall street failure*?
Bet she did. It woulddent surprise
me at all if that drought we had
last year wasn't caused by Russia,
either directly or indirectly One of
our legislators* told his wife last
week that Russia was fighting the|
drought relief bill so’s nearly all of1

Stand Schools Where There
Is No Apology For Religion
(By R. L. Bolton.(
The church schools are not sup
ported by the tuxes of the people.
They are supported by the f.ee-will
gilts of the people. We would not
have It otherwise.
All this effort to do anything well
without emphasis on religion has
not gotten us anywhere. Religion
left out of business means the col
lapse of business. We can t Ignore
religion In education, Man Is in
curably religious. To try to alll the
religious instinct In man is as fool
ish as to try to destroy the instinct
of self-preservation, the sexual in
stinct, the appetite for food or the
thirst for water.
Poor old Germany nationalized
and militarized her schools. The
resultant Is an exiled ruler, lost
provinces, and a national debt over
which the German people will sweat
blood for many a day. poor old Rus
sia Is making an experiment In
"democracy,” This so-called "de
mocracy” laid Its foundation In
sand when It ruled out reliyioo.
The Godless Soviet's days are num
bered. Science has learned its les
son. Great scientists today. men
like Jeans and Eddington, have dis
covered that materialism will not
explain everything. The men of
science have hit a stone wall. Their
microscopes and telescopes have not
been long enough to see God. They,
are now talking about the spiritual
Interpretation of the universe.
The Juveniles who have been so
conspicuous as criminals in Amer
ica during these recent years prove
that education without religion Is a
mighty bad thing. The American
lathers and mothers are thinking.
They want reverent sons and dangh
ters. Godless sons and daughters, al
though they hold diplomas from a
great university, are no satisfaction
to parents who have had ‘A travt 1
the Journey of life leaning on God
and the Bible. Civilization Just can
not survive without religion; That
is Just the long and short of it.
Thoughtful people know tills.
Thoughtful donors want their
money to go where young men and
women are taught to fear God and
regard man. A Christian college
outs living a lifp before making a
living. The philosophy of making a
living without regard to living a life
has filled Chicago with gunmen and
has made Al Capone king of “crook
A school like Bolling Springs be
lieves that the fear of God and the
regard for man is the beginning of
wisdom. Out at Bolling Springs re
ligion and education go hand in
hand. 8uch a school Is not ashamed
of its policy and program. Those who
make their gifts for its support make

Think of it! Every fourth second! Just count them off! One, two,
three, four—another Riverside sold. One, two, three, four—
still another! and so on through the day. Every fourth second a
new rugged Riverside goes out into the world to roll up its
thousands of miles of dependable tire service.
Every Riverside Tire Is
a First Quality Tire!
There are several grades of tires. When you’re quoted a price on a tire,
ask "Is this a first quality tire or a second line tire.” Don’t let anybody
quote second line tire prices against Riversides—because Riversides are
first line tires—and should be compared only with first line tires.
No Other Tire Can Give
a Greater Guarantee!
■—because Riverside’s guarantee is UNLIMITED. Unlimited in time
unlimited in mileage! Who can give more than that? Who could ASK
more! So why pay MORE when Riversides give all that can be givenl
Save 10% to 15%!
This is the average saving on Riversides compared with other FIRST
LINE tires. And remember, Riversides are FIRST LINE tires! No wonder
another Riverside is sold every four seconds!
