Mr. Reininger, who has consistent-

were enumerated in the .State 1,399,-
791 children of scholastic age, which
under an apportionment of $17.50

82-1,406,343. For the same year daily
attendance in the public sc'ho Is reg-
istered 1,153,100 pupils; accordingly

on daily attendance in the public
schools for said year would have been
$21.25 per scholastic.

Do you ‘‘fly all to pieces” when the children are noisy, or
when the vegetables bum, or when the jelly won’t ‘'jell?”
Some mothers are just naturally cranky. Some mothers are
cross and impatient because they are nervous.
If you are a natural crank, DR. MILES NERVINE won’t
do much for you. If you are irritable because your nerves
are overtaxed, DR. MILES NERVINE will do a lot for you.
Do you suffer from Sleeplessness, Restlessness, Nervous
Irritability, Nervous Headache, or Nervous Indigestion? Do
you worry over trifles, start at sudden noises? Overtaxed
nerves will cause all these troubles, and DR. MILES NERV-
INE will help Jrou to relax those overtaxed nerves.
Why don’t you give it a trial on our guarantee of satisfac-
tion or your money back? Your druggist can tell you about
DR. MILES NERVINE. He has been selling it ever since he
started clerking in a drug store. Dr. Miles Nervine comes
in two forms—Liquid and Effervescent Tablets. Both equal-
ly effective in quieting overtaxed nerves. Both sell for 25^
» and $1.00 depending on the size of the package.
