The domestic science class of the high
school was given an opportunity to note
how a'l Elk cars when the eating is good
as last evening about 60 members of the
local Elk lodge were eTltertaiivid bv the
class iu the domestic science rooms of
the high school.
Judging by the eagerness with which
the aatlered herd went after the fri

should be no doubt in the minds of the
girls who prepared the banquet nor in
the minds of the teachers and school

cooks., i'hey certainly were and the boys
were ceutainly glad they wero tnere

John W. Todd said
he was glad of the chance to give such
representative citizens an opportunity
to know by experience what fine eo..lj
the domestic Bcience department were
turning out. And incidentally ho hoped
that the boys r ould be good friends for
this department should they happen to
want a little better equipment. In the
tewing department, he said that the
girls were not only making part of their
own clothes, but sewing garments to be
given to the, Social' Service Center. The
cooking department he said was self
supporting as it served about 50 meals
a day to high school -students.

HOW TO AVOID
Told by Mrs. Lynch From
Providence, R. I. "I was all run
down in health, was nervous, had head-
aciies, my oacK
ached all the time.
I was tired and had
no ambition forany
thing. I had tcken
a number of medi
cines which did me
no good. One day
I read about Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound and
what it had done for
women, so I tried
it. My nervousness
and backache and
headaches disappeared. I gained In
weight and feel fine, so I can honestly
recommend Lydia E. Pinkham'a Vege
table Compound to any woman who is
suffering as I was." Mrs. ADELINE B.
Lynch, 100 Plain St, Providence, R.I.
Backache and nervousness are symp
toms or nature's warnings, which in
dicate a functional disturbance or an
unhealthy condition which often devel
otis into a more serious ailment
Women in this condition should not
