A SPECIFIC AGAINST COLDS The nearest thing to a specific against colds in a sleeping porch or open bed room and a cold sponge bath every morning when you first get up. Even then you will occasionally take a cold, especially when colds are epidemic, and when you do you will find Chamberlain's Cough Remedy a great help in enabling you to get rid of it. Try it.

It was through the courtesy of the telephone operators and some of the teachers that word was sent to all the teachers over the county not to come. We herewith express our appreciation of their help. The postponement of the meeting seemed necessary.

Although both the Secretary, Miss Powell, and the superintendent had tried to get into communcation with the speaker ten days ago, it was not until Thursday noon that word was received from the speaker, that, owing to dates he could not come. Immediately this office made an effort to secure a speaker by phoning to Topeka, Manhattan and St. Joseph. Not finding one it was decided to have the meeting anyway. But on Friday word was received from land that the Glee Club could not come on account of the scarlet fever scare.

This left us without a program and on advice of the president, it was thought best to postpone the meeting. Should it be deemed advisable, there will be an announcement of an Association at a later date. The Teachers' Association has been one of the enjoyable features of the work--at least to the superintendent. The programs have been carried out to the letter, heretofore, and the attendance has been cellent. It is true that a few of the teachers have come in for only a part of the afternoon sessions, but the majority have come to get and to give something of value to the work in hand.

The Association is a thermometer measuring quite accurately the professional attitude of the teachers. Their enthusiasm causes a rising temperature and they go back to their schools with renewed courage and interest to put into effect the message received from the broader outlook of the speaker. The attendance has been greatly hindered this year because of contagious diseases in several of the schools. Troy, Eclipse, A'berle, Bellemont and Burr Oak have been closed at some time during the year. Through the prompt measures of Dr.

Roy E. Allen. county health officer, assisted by the board of local physicians, the deseases have been checked and few, if any, cases have resulted seriously. It is hoped that all the parents will do all they can to put the children back into school. The Course is a heavy one and pupils need to be in regular and prompt attendance in order to complete the work in a satisfactory manner.

Mr. Thomas Lankford, truancy officer, has been kept busy investigating these cases. Occasionally, a delinquent child is found and has to be brought into the Juvenile Court. There was such a case tried in Probate Judge Brown's court Saturday. The case was' from Elwood and, as it was the first appearance, the boy was paroled with the promise that he would be obedient to the rules of the school.

The day has gone by when the teacher has to be a threshing-machine. The truancy officer, the county attorney and the probate judge now have the power of separating the wheat from the chaff. This is better for all concerned. These Farmers State Bank WATHENA, KANSAS CAPITAL $20,000.00 SURPLUS AND PROFITS $8,000.00 A Strong, Safe and Conservative Bank.

LAST SUNDAY SERVICES, BAPTIST CHURCH 'The old adage is, that all is well that ends well. It is certainly an affliction to the preacher to be without a voice, but to his congregation in some instances it may be a blessing.

While the pastor was unable to speak above a whisper last Sunday, the people enjoyed two good services at the Baptist church. Bro. Geyer was away at conference, no peaching services at his church. In the evening Bro. Crepin, on invitation, came with his people to the Baptist church and brought with him Rev.

H. C. Elfeldt, a former pastor of the German M. E. church, who did the preaching and did i it well.

The three churches gave him a good hearing and the service was a blessing to us all. At the morning hour we had Rev. J. T. Crawford with us, who gave a fine discourse.

Bro. Crawford has been corresponding secretary of Kansas Missions for several years, and is efficient both as a secretary and preacher. Our church took, a collection for Home Missions and raised the apportionment for the year. Upon the whole we had a good day and very enjoyable one. The pastor has not heard a single criticism about anything he said Sunday, and probably will not.

We wish to express our thanks to Bro. Crepin for his kindness in bringing his people and friend over, and making it possible for us to have a delightful evening service. THE BAPTIST LADIES CHICKEN. PIE DINNER The ladies of the Baptist Missionary Society were well pleased with the results of the chicken pie dinner given last Friday. They wish to thank all who helped by their presence or by their donations which were liberal in all cases.

A special vote of thanks is due Mrs. Gamble who gave the use of her stove and kitchen to those who made the chicken pies, and to Mrs. John Erb who made the society a present of a nice quilt, pieced ready for quilting. Another member donating cotton, another the lining and another the thread. In the near future an allday quilting will be held at the home of one of the members for the purpose of finishing the quilt, which will be sold and the money put in our missionary fund.

Sec'y. M. E. CHURCH NOTES. Rev.

E. L. Geyer has been re-appointed by the M. E. Conference to continue as pastor at Wathena.

After calling to see relatives South Haven and Attica while near them, he is expected home, probably to-day, to hold regular services next Sunday. Our former printer and preacher, Rev. John W. Carpenter, favored us with a pleasant call while making an over Sunday visit with his wife's folks, H. A.

St. John's, at Palermo. Rev. Carpenter is residing at Valley Falls and also preaches at the Easton, Leavenworth county, Anna Paukan has the German Emmet Fenn Major Kenderdine came np from wood last Friday to attend Post meeting. On his way he stopped at Bob McPherson's, whose rheumatism was paining him too much to come, and on arriving here found several others of the members feeling regretfully more like talking their wife's tions into preparedness to fight Villa than jumping in to be first volunteers at the front themselves, and the Post meeting was not called to order but the time instead spent mostly mingling on the eunny side of streets and considering what would, could or should be done toward wiping up the earth with the Villains and other violators of the laws and rights of civilization, and especially of this Nation, that the old soldier volunteers have fought and sacrificed so much for the furtherance and maintenance of.

The old soldiers are strong in faith, it not in body, that this Nation will come out at the end of the present awful conditions with old glory still the light and banner leading in the uplift and hope when wars and oppressions will be no more.
