SPOILS MANY LlVES
“BEST" TEACHER SCHOOL EVER
HAD A FAILURE.
8he Refused to See the Opportunity*
Near Home and Created a Spirit
of Unrest and Discontent
The "best” teacher we ever had lu j
our old district school lmd u distinct- I
ly bod influence in the community,
says u writer in Farm Life.
Boru und raised in the country, site j
longed for the town with iter whole
She despised the rural life.
She thought all the wisdom of the
world was printed lu books, and that
all the worthwhile opportunities of
life were to he found in distant cities.
She did uot openly deride and mock
our parents, of course, but we knew
without being told what iter feeling
Site was full of enthusiasm, and she \
found it easy to inspire us with her
own top-lofty ambitions.
Most of the girls In the neighbor- |
hood wanted to be Jenny Linds and
Florence Nightingales. All the boys j
wanted to be heroes—great soldiers, ,
poets, judges, statesmen.
N'oue of us, of course, wanted to be
great in his own neighborhood. Each
thought he had to get away from home '
in order to have a chance in life.
Teacher could uot, in fuct, see the
The eyes of her soul were afHicted
with that disease which the oculists
call hypermetropiu. She could only see
The girls in the neighborhood, feel-
ing the Impulse towurd ‘‘wider hori-

They escaped the “deadening monot-
ony” of rural life by becoming wait-
resses lu hotels and workers in fac-
Some fared a little better and some
s great deal worse—but none of them
became a Jenny Lind or a Florence
The boys, too, were full of the grand
unrest. They turned their backs scorn-
fully on the old homesteads.
Each was “the architect of his own
fortune," and teacher hud taught him
to believe that ail the building mate-
rials were to be found in distunt
After they had failed as architects,
many of them came humbly but gladly
back to the old district and succeeded
Now as never before in the world
opportunity is found on the farm, und
every school teacher should know that,
There are more statesmen of real
worth and more genuine poets coming
from the tall gruss than from the tall
The wider horizon Is the privilege of
youth, but it is visible to everyone who
lifts his head at home, while it is too
often obscured by clouds of smoke to
the sojourner in the cities.
Do not let teacher till the minds of
your children full of cheap romance
while site ignores all the beauty and
dignity that should make rurul life so
It is often said that love Is blind,
and, judging by the experience of a
newly married couple, it husu’t much
sense of taste, either.
A few weeks ufter the wedding a
friend dropped into the bridegroom’s
studio and found the artist and his
bride laughing heurtily at some Joke.
“What ever is amusing you so
much?” he asked in amazement.
“Oh. it’s been so funny," gurgled
the young wife, as she wiped the
tears of Joy from her eyes. “My hus-
band painted and I cooked this morn-
ing, and now we are both trying to
guess what the tilings were meant

CALOMEL IS MERCURY, II SICKENS!
SIOP USING SALIVATING D006
Don’t Lose a Day’s Work! If Your Liver Is Sluggish or Bowels
Constipated Take “Dodson’s Liver Tone.”—It’s Fine!
Your liver is slug-
gish! Y’ou feel lazy, dizzy and all
knocked out. Y’our head is dull, your
tongue is coated; breath bad; stomach
sour and bowels constipated. But don’t
take salivating calomel. It makes you
sick, you may lose a day’s work.
Calomel is mercury or quicksilver
which causes necrosis of the bones.
Calomel crashes into sour bile like
dynamite, breaking it up. That's when
you feel that awful nausea and cramp-
If you want to enjoy the nicest, gen-
tlest liver and bowel cleansing you
ever experienced just take a spoonful
of harmless Dodson’s Liver Tone. Your
druggist or dealer sells you a 50-cent
bottle of Dodson’s Liver Tone under
my personal money-back guarantee
that each spoonful will clean your
sluggish liver better than a dose of
nasty calomel and that it won’t make
Dodson's Liver Tone is real liver
medicine. Y'ou’ll know it next morn-
ing because you will wake up feeling
fine, your liver will be working, your
headache and dizziness gone, your
stomach will be sweet and your bowels
regular. You will feel like working;
you’ll be cheerful; full of vigor and
Dodson's Liver Tone is entirely
vegetable, therefore harmless and can-
not salivate. Give it to your children!
Millions of people are using Dodson’s
Liver Tone instead of dangerous cal-
omel now. "Your druggist will tell you
that the sale of calomel is almost
stopped entirely here.—Adv.
if you would avoid trouble, always
look for the funny side of a question.
To Fortify the System Against

Laundry of Nashville, wrote: “I cannot
speak too highly of Lung-Vita and of its
results. I never used it myself, but I
bought four bottles of you to give to dif-

cured. If they will take the medicine as
directed and stick to it. they will never
regret it.” Take Lung-Vita for consump-
