Allow me to say through your valued
columns that the law governing the ap
portionment of school funds was in no
way modified, except that two apportion
ments, those made in October and in
April are made obligatory, others being
left to the discretion of the Superintend
ent. As a matter of fact, this apportion
ment was made in part last October and
is to be completed in Aoril.
The present school law went into effect
last May. The following from the State
Department has reached me by the last

The first record concerning mirrors
dates back to the days of the venerable
Moses, and they were made of brass.
When the Spaniards landed In South
America they found mirrors of polished
black stone in use among the natives.
In the fifteenth century the first glass
mirrors were made in Germany by a
blowpipe, nnd were convex. The first
manufactory of glass mirrors for sale
was established in Venice early in the
sixteenth century. In the reign of
James I. men, women and children
wore looking glasses publicly, the men

A Qunrt Baby
Now and again there ia an item in the
newspapers concerning the birth of a
nc i.'ahv so small that a Quart cup
holds it comfortably. If the article told
all the facts it would probamy tell also
of a mother who in weakness and misery
had looked forward to the baby's advent
with shrinking and fear.
To have fine, healthy children the
mother must be healthy, and it is tiie
of mothers that the
use of Dr. i'itrce's

motes the mother's
health but also
gives her strength
to give her child.
