Special lc> The Telegraph
Beaver Sprints. Pa.. Jan. ti.—The
percentage of the population of Sny
der county which is attending Sunday
schools is larsrer than that of any
other county in the whole world, ac
cording to a report just issued by Fl. I.
Tlomig, secretary of the Snyder County
Sunday School Association, who has
held that ofllce for the last thirty
successive years. This fact owes Its
origin, says Secretary Romlg, to the
fact that all of the officers of the
association arc energetic workers, who
sincerely believe that the Sunday
school is accomplishing the greatest
work for humanity.
Secretary Romlg, of the association,
lias been very active in church work.
' His record follows: Superintendent of
T.utheran Sunday School at Beaver
Springs for twenty-one years: leader
of choir in Lutheran Church at Beaver
Springs for twenty-five > ears: served
two terms as deacon and twenty-ciglit
years as secretary of the council of the
delegates to every one of the
six world's Sunday school conventions
and all of the International Sunday
school conventions.
X. B. Middleswortli, the president
of the association, is the grandson of
the famous Captain Xer Middles
worth. The other officers of this great
association which is taking care of
Snyder county's great Sunday school
work are: President. Xer Middles
worth. McClure; vice-president. If. B.
Moyer, Freeburg: secretary. li. I. Ro
mig. Beaver Springs, and treasurer, R.
P. Haines, Mlddleburg.
One-half Bottle of the
Great Kidney Remedy
Accomplishes Results
When I sent for a sample bottle of
Swamp-Root. I was in great distress
day and night. Before 1 received sam
ple by mall, 1 went to our best doctor
(and he is second to none in this
vicinity) and told him how 1 felt. He
- put me up a bottle of medicine. 1 was
about a week taking the medicine, but
was no better than when I began. I
then began your sample bottle, and
before I got through with it, I felt a
change. The scalding sensation did
not bother only a few times in the
middle of the day. 1 would not have
believed such a small quantity would
have done so much, but before It was
gone I learned that our druggist kept
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root and so got
a large bottle for one dollar but actu
ally worth one hundred dollars. I
only took one large tablcsyoonful
three times a day and before I had
taken one-half bottle I was all right
und have been since. Gratefullv vours,

Last week I visited a
boy scout patrol and
found fifteen bright-faced earn
est lads listening to a talk
by their scout master. "Take
care of your teeth" he urged;
"You can't grow up to be
strong self-reliant men unless
you have good health, and good
teeth mean good health. Brush
your teeth thoroughly twice a
' day and visit your dentist twice
a year —it is insuring your
health and happiness when you
are grown men."
The Scout Manual puts care
of the teeth first among the
things a boy should know if he
wants good health. And every
boy should realize that Good
Teeth —Good Health will take
him far along the road to suc
cess in school, in sports, in
business and in pleasure.
The :wi e-a-day use of Col- I
Ste's Ribbon Dental Cream—

flavor —keeps the teeth clean,

Perry County Commissioners Say

has arisen In Marysville. On Monday
