Every high school in this coun
try ought to have a military
branch, with a first-class military
officer at the head of it. The
young ought to be taught sys
tem, discipline, military bearing,
gentlemantly deportment and
they ought to be given the phys
ical training that such a system
would give. That would mean
stronger, healthier young men.
The above expresses a timely
truth. The Times could have
gone further and said that the
present national guard should re

YOU AND YOUR HORSE
From The Dawson News.
We are reminded to call atten
tion to the plight of the faithful
horse—as well as of the farm
mule —during the hot days of
midsummer, there being a broad
realization that even the most
human of us are apt to be forget
It is a subject well worthy of a
timely word each summer. The
horse, as faithful a friend as the
dog, is dumb. He has no means
of protesting when overly wear
ied because of your thoughtless
ness. You may drive him to
death if you will. His heart may
be breaking literally and actual
ly, but until it breaks and he
falls to die he cannot warn you
•f the impending tragedy. He
must trust to your humanitarian
ism and judgment.

make for the nearest shade, a
cooling drink, a bath or a palm

Take Out The Ashes
Uremia is due to the circulation in
the system of poison and waste pro
ducts that should be removed from the
blood by the kidneys. If the ashes
are not removed the tire dies and the
machinery stops. So with the waste
products of the system. Foley Kidney
pills help the kidneys remove the
waste matter that causes rheumatism,
aches and pains, stiff joints and sore
muscles. The Owl Pharmacy, adv
